The Sun and the Clouds [Quote - 367]

Published Categorised as Quote-Unquote, Quote-Unquote – Book IV (301-400)

"When it comes to Islam – and the Qur'an – just consider this: The sun has gone behind the clouds, but the clouds will part and the sun will reappear.

For, that is the nature of the sun and the clouds.

It is part of the perpetual interplay of light and darkness in nature that there are times when the sun comes under a cloud cover. But the clouds must, and do, part, and the sun always reappears.

For, that is the nature of the clouds: to part, every time they cover the sun.

Short of Qiyaamat, or the Doom’s Day, this is the immutable law of nature – what the Qur’an calls Sunnatullah Allah’s Way.

How beautifully and powerfully and how clearly Allah states that idea in the Qur’an:

(a) Here is the Qur’an:

Fa-inna Ma’al 'Usri Yusran, Inna Ma’al 'Usri Yusraa!

“Surely, with hardship comes ease. Surely with hardship comes ease.”

(b) Here again is the Qur’an:

Jaa-al Haqqu wa Zahaqwal Baatwil, Innal Baatwila Kaana Zahooqwaa!

“Truth has arrived and falsehood has vanished. For, that is the nature of falsehood: falsehood must always depart and vanish.”"

(Dr. Pasha)
