Striking the Balance

  • Allah's creation invites human beings to observe and study the secrets behind it. Ultimately it will lead humans to acknowledge the undeniable truth, which is the Greatness of the Creator who is Most Subtle in His creations. 
  • Allah mention al-Mizan in surah ar-Rahman which means the balance or the scale. Ibn 'Asyur wrote in his Tafsir book: Allah uses the words As-samaa' (the sky) and the word al-mizan (scales) together as a signal to us on how important and great justice is, as He is comparing it with the sky, which is unquestionably majestic. 
  • Allah repeats the word Al-mizan in surah ar-Rahman thrice. This show how vital the scales of justice and balance are in human life.
