Ever So Tiny

As-salamu `alaykum wa rahmatullah

The Qur’an is incredibly descriptive and visual. Have you ever wondered what the words ‘Naqir‘, ‘Qitmir‘, and ‘Fatil‘ mean in the following verses? Read the verses, then look at the pictures to get an idea.

ﻭَﻣَﻦْ ﻳَﻌْﻤَﻞْ ﻣِﻦَ ﺍﻟﺼَّﺎﻟِﺤَﺎﺕِ ﻣِﻦْ ﺫَﻛَﺮٍ ﺃَﻭْ ﺃُﻧْﺜَﻰٰ ﻭَﻫُﻮَ ﻣُﺆْﻣِﻦٌ ﻓَﺄُﻭﻟَٰﺌِﻚَ ﻳَﺪْﺧُﻠُﻮﻥَ ﺍﻟْﺠَﻨَّﺔَ ﻭَﻻَ ﻳُﻆْﻠَﻤُﻮﻥَ ﻧَﻘِﻴﺮًﺍ

1 – “And whoever does righteous good deeds, whether male or female, and is a true believer, such will enter Paradise and they will face no injustice, not even the size of a Naqir.” [al-Nisa: 124]

Naqir: speck on a date seed

ﻳَﻮْﻡَ ﻧَﺪْﻋُﻮ ﻛُﻞَّ ﺃُﻧَﺎﺱٍ ﺑِﺈِﻣَﺎﻣِﻬِﻢْ ۖ ﻓَﻤَﻦْ ﺃُﻭﺗِﻲَ ﻛِﺘَﺎﺑَﻪُ ﺑِﻴَﻤِﻴﻨِﻪِ ﻓَﺄُﻭﻟَٰﺌِﻚَ ﻳَﻘْﺮَءُﻭﻥَ ﻛِﺘَﺎﺑَﻬُﻢْ ﻭَﻻَ ﻳُﻆْﻠَﻤُﻮﻥَ ﻓَﺘِﻴﻼ

2 – [Mention, O Muhammad], the Day We will call forth every people with their record [of deeds]. Then whosoever is given his record in his right hand, such will read their records, and injustice will not be done to them, [even] as much as a Fatil.” [al-Isra’: 71]

Fatil:  thread  [inside  the date  seed].

ﻳُﻮﻟِﺞُ ﺍﻟﻠَّﻴْﻞَ ﻓِﻲ ﺍﻟﻨَّﻬَﺎﺭِ ﻭَﻳُﻮﻟِﺞُ ﺍﻟﻨَّﻬَﺎﺭَ ﻓِﻲ ﺍﻟﻠَّﻴْﻞِ ﻭَﺳَﺨَّﺮَ ﺍﻟﺸَّﻤْﺲَ ﻭَﺍﻟْﻘَﻤَﺮَ ﻛُﻞٌّ ﻳَﺠْﺮِﻱ ﻷَِﺟَﻞٍ ﻣُﺴَﻤًّﻰ ۚ ﺫَٰﻟِﻜُﻢُ ﺍﻟﻠَّﻪُ ﺭَﺑُّﻜُﻢْ ﻟَﻪُ ﺍﻟْﻤُﻠْﻚُ ۚ ﻭَﺍﻟَّﺬِﻳﻦَ ﺗَﺪْﻋُﻮﻥَ ﻣِﻦْ ﺩُﻭﻧِﻪِ ﻣَﺎ ﻳَﻤْﻠِﻜُﻮﻥَ ﻣِﻦْ ﻗِﻂْﻤِﻴﺮٍ

3 – He causes the night to enter the day, and He causes the day to enter the night and has subjected the sun and  the moon - each running [its course] for a specified term. That is Allah, your Lord; to Him belongs sovereignty. And those whom you invoke other than Him do not possess [as much as] a Qitmir.” [Fatir: 13]

Qatmir: membrane  of  a  date  seed.
