Assalaamualikum Dear Shuyukh,
Please could you tell me the Tafsir of Verse 75-80 in Surah 56 (Waqia) which roughly translates to:
Nay, I swear by the places of the stars
And lo! that verily is a tremendous oath, if ye but knew
That (this) is indeed a noble Qur’an
In a Book kept hidden
Which none toucheth save the purified,
A revelation from the Lord of the Worlds.
I am especially interested in the significance of the Oath that Allah (swt) makes regarding the setting or placement of the stars and what is the spiritual meaning/secrets behind it.
The few Tafsirs I have looked at do not give much detail. JazaakAllah
It is an oath by the stations of the Awliya and Allah knows best.
