      The Alif with a haraka on it (either fatha,, kasra or dhamma) sound comes from the open passage of the throat - it is considered deepest, most primary sound along with ha ... the sound is also from the most unseen part - the lower throat. The sound of the name being uttered starts from the back, traverses through the middle and on to the lips ended in a fa sound ...

      There are some sounds of letters that cannot be articulated without a vowel attachment ... for example - Ba, Ta, Jeem, Waw, etc ...however some letters can make a sound through passing air whilst hold the mouth in the position for that sound. These letters are sliding sound letters ... such as meem, laam, nun, seen, sheen and so on.

      The sound of the Laam can be made without a vowel - but the name of Laal - constitutes a fatha madd ended in a meem ... The Laal is articulated from the centre of the mouth

      The meem picking up its sound from the previous meem is also on a madd but with a kasra ... the sound of the ALM construct starts aloof (low pitched - masculine) and ends genitive (high pitched - feminine) with the eee sound in Meem.

      The Meem is also formed at the very end of the mouth ... Together the ALM construct seems to bring it's presence from a deep void - condensing to a lighter apparent end ... From beginning to end ...

      Encompassing all things hidden and apparent ...

      From the highest to the lowest ...

      ... then the chapters continues ... "That" is the Book in which there is no doubt ...

      more to come inshaAllah ...

      "I am leaving you two things and you will never go astray as long as you cling to them -- they are the Book of Allah and my Sunnah." [Reported by Al- Haakim - Sahih].

      Peace LKK

      May Allah (SWT) reward your efforts ... This is a natural progression from a couple of threads that I put up some time ago ... so I have linked them here ...

      Your idea takes it further because we are analysing the verses one at a time ...

      I would like to elaborate here on the phrase "Bismillah ..."

      It is constructed from three Arabic words.

      Bi + Ism + Allah

      When the word/Name "Allah" is pronounced in isolation we have to "fatten" the fatha sound after the Laam... we call this jalee ... this also happens with the Raa letter, except when before the laam or Raa there is a kasra ... in the "Bismillah" there is a kasra before the Laam and that results on the pronunciation being "thinner" or leen.

      Bi = With/In/By
      Ism = Name
      Allah = {Proper noun of Deity in Arabic - can be viewed as Al-Ilah}

      Since the Name Allah is a combined word which contains the word 'Al' = The = Definite Article - This makes whatever follow it "definite" ... Something "definite" is something "Known" ... A wisdom here is that "Allah is Known" or defined for us to know ... There can be none else with the name that has been defined - Denoting Unique Identity ...

      When we say "an apple" we mean to say one of many ... When we say "The apple" we are talking about a specific apple ... Likewise "Allah" is inherent to specificity ... the Name is always Definite.

      "Allah" the word begins with a hamzat-ul-wasl - which means that it can be deleted ... leaving the Llah with a sukun on the laam ... the meem from "Ism" joins with the laam with a damma giving a jalee sound ..."Ismullah" ... Also, the word Ism has a hamzat-ul-wasl which means that too can be deleted leaving the Seen with a sukun ... "Bi" is harf-u-Jarr ... which converts the marfu' of "Ismu" to the jarr of "Ismi" sound ... thus making up the phrase "Bismillahi"

      It translates to "In the Name of Allah" - However, if we look to both English and Urdu translations we say "I begin" - These two words are totally absent from the Arabic, but yet we still say them by meaning ... What is happening when we say these words?

      What we are doing is recognising the sanctity in the Name of Allah (SWT) and using it to anoint the passages that follow ... just as we use it to anoint the actions we take ... We are metaphorically using what is blessed to continue and surround us in that blessing ... So it can be taken as a form of cleansing ... declaring that we acknowledge the sanctity of the act/words and seek approval from Allah (SWT) using His Name ... We begin - Using the Name of Allah (SWT) since the rightful place of Allah (SWT) is as His Attribute - The First ... at the beginning ...

      We can indeed say anything noble precedes the words "In the Name of Allah" -

      I begin in the Name of Allah
      I read in the Name of Allah
      I walk ...
      I run ...
      and so on ... all are relevant with a single phrase "Bismillahi" ... So we are taught this universal phrase of sanctifying our actions and we are taught the nobility of the Name and it's rightful place - hence we use it through a sense of etiquette and honour ... And what better place to use this than before reading the "Word of Allah"?

      Ar-Rahman and Ar-Raheem - both from the same root in Arabic are Attributive to Allah (SWT) - Why used here? Well perhaps "The Qur'an is indeed a Mercy and Guidance which has been given to us without our efforts" It is like being put in a puzzle game (life) and then being given the solution book ... (Al-Qur'an) ... This is indeed a Mercy and reflects the nature of the manner in which The Qur'an al-Kareem was revealed to us.

      Yes ... The verse starts with Ism-ul-'ishara - Dzaalika ... For human minds learn with the naming of objects - we say "that is" ...
      Amazing how "Allah (SWT) taught Adam (AS) the names of things and likewise ... He teaches us too" - The learning of names of things is the first grammatical experience we tend to have ... To appoint a name we point out the object then repeat its name ... point out the object is done verbally as "That" or "This" and so on ... In Arabic this word is called "Ism-ul-'Ishara" - literally the "noun of signage" ...Why was the distant one used? We translate the word dzaalika to that in Arabic, haadza is this ... however although the Holy Qur'an is indeed talkng about itself, it is done with respect that it is given the sign of "that" ... or that the Qur'an is distant and what is uttered is what is repeated ... The Qur'an is not a physical book ... but it was called a "Book" - Kitaab ... within the scripture before it was compiled as a "mussHaf" ... kitaab is "that what has been written" or "some writing" ...

      It has no doubt in it ... and it is a guidance for those who fear Deity ... "No doubt" - here means that "any doubt by our minds in this book is unjustified" or "Allah (SWT) being the Source of the Qur'an has cast it without doubt, without being created" It is a testimony - Just like the books today where we read a preface - The Qur'an gives its own introduction ... first with Surah Fatihah and then with these lines ... Note the people who find guidance in it are already those who fear, love and who altogether conscious of Allah (SWT).

      It sets the conditions for its uptake early on ... It says in no uncertain terms ... "This Book will enlighten you ... but you have to be a person who is honest in your search for God"

      A L M are abbreviated letters called the Muqatta'ai. The particular letters A L M are found prefixed in Surahs:

      Surah Al Baqarah,
      Surah Al Imran,
      Surah Al Ankaboot,
      Surah Al Rom,
      Surah Al Luqman, and
      Surah Al Sajdah.

      In Surah Al Baqarah and Surah Al Imran, the argument is about the rise and fall of nations, their past, and their future in history, with ordinances for the new universal People of Islam. In Surah Al Ankaboot, a similar argument about nations leads off to the mystery of Life and Death, Failure and Triumph, Past and Future things, in the history of individual souls. The burden of Surah Al Rom, is that Almighty Allah is the source of all things and all things return to Him. In Surah Al Luqman and Surah Al Sajdah, the same lesson is enforced: Almighty Allah is the Creator and He will be the Judge on the Last Day. There is therefore a common thread, the mystery of Life and Death, Beginning and End.

      >>>>>> If you read post# 43 (Isma-ul-Isharaa) the above will make more sense why Adam (a.s.) were teached the names of different things. In different things past present and future history is also counted.

      Much has been written about the meaning of these letters, but most of it is pure conjecture. Some commentators are content to recognise them as some mystic symbols, of which it is unprofitable to discuss the meaning by mere verbal logic. In mysticism we accept symbols as such for the time beingl their esoteric meaning comes from the inner light when we are ready for it.

      Among the conjectures there are two plausible theories: One is that each initial represents and attribute of God. Among the attributes it is not difficult to select three which will fit in with these letters. Another theory favoured by 'Baidhawi' is that these letters are initial, the final and the middle (or again the initial) letter of three names: Allah, Jibril, and Muhammad, - the source of revelation, the heavenly messenger who brought it and the human Messenger through whom it was promulgated in human speech. This might be appropriate to the first Surah (with Baqarah really is if we treat Fatiha as preface); but if it was prefixed to others, why to these six only?

      If we look to the nature of sounds which the letters represent, A is a breathing and come from the throat, L is a lingual palatal dental sound from the middle of the mouth and M is a labial or lip sound. Can se not take them as symbolical of the Beginning, Middle and End? If so, are they not appropriate to teh Suras which treat specifically of Life, Growth, and Death - the Beginning and the End? In the new Testament Greek scripture, the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet, Alpha and Omega, are symbolical of the Beninning and the End, and give one of the titles of God; "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning nd the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty" [Rev.i,8] The symoblism of the three things is better with three letters.

      >>>>>>>>>>>>>> plz see post# 39.

      Taqwa [Fear] and the verb and nouns connected with the root, signify:

      1- The fear of God, which, according to the writer of Proverbs (last verse from Surah Al Fatiha) in the Old Testament, is the beginning of Wisdom,

      2- Restraint, or guarding one's tongue, hand, and heart from evil; hence righteousness, piety, agood conduct.

      All these ideas are implied; in the translation, only one or other of these ideas can be indicated, according to the context.

      All bounties proceed from God. They may be physical gifts, e.g., food, clothing, houses, garden, wealth, etc., or intangible gifts, e.g., influence, power, birth nd the opportunities flowing from it, health, talents, etc., or spiritual gifts, e.g., insight into good and evil, understanding of men, the cpacity for love, etc. We are to use all in humility and moderation. But we are also to give out of every one of them something that contributes to the well-being of others. We are to be neither ascetics nor luxurious sybarites, neither selfish misers nor thoughtless prodigals.

      Allatheena yu/minoona bilghaybiwayuqeemoona assalata wamimma razaqnahumyunfiqoon

      Who believe in the unseen, establish prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them
      جو غیب پر ایمان لاتے اور آداب کے ساتھ نماز پڑھتے اور جو کچھ ہم نے ان کو عطا فرمایا ہے اس میں سے خرچ کرتے ہیں

      I observed:

      - Believing in unseen - What is Unseen?
      - Establishing prayers - Which prayers?
      - Charity - Why to gives charity?
