MEEM - THE ARABICLETTER

PART 3

INTRODUCTION

The initial draft ofthis article was first completed on 7 January 1999 / 19 Ramadan1419 but it was never published. Now more than a year and a halflater it has been rewritten and it is now presented here. Allahis the one who sets the timetable. We are all under the commandof our Rabb.

So my friends, let usbegin with the Name of Allah. Al Hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen.All Praise is for Allah the Rabb (Lord) of the worlds. Peace andBlessings on His Beloved, Our Nabee Muhammad The Arabic Letter Part 3 (2).

Since I started writingabout the Arabic letters with the letter Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (3))Part 1 being the first article, it is only right that I finishon the letter Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (4)). Since everythingin this world is a circle, we must also complete the circle ofthe Arabic letters with the letter Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (5)).Since the word Islam The Arabic Letter Part 3 (6)endswith the letter Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (7)) we must completewith the letter Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (8)). Since the Seal- KhatamThe Arabic Letter Part 3 (9) endswith the letter Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (10)) we must completewith the letter Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (11)). Since we arecreated from water - Maa The Arabic Letter Part 3 (12), westarted with the letter Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (13)). Sincewe finish our earthly existence with death - Mawt The Arabic Letter Part 3 (14), we must end with the letter Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (15)).

MAWT (DEATH)

Mawt The Arabic Letter Part 3 (16)- Death is a changeof state from material world to the spiritual world. Mawt is the end of one journey and the beginning ofanother. There is a Chinese proverb 'Every journey begins withone step'. Mawt is that first step of the nextjourney. The new state can be Jannator Jahannum , heaven or hell. That new stateis a result of our belief and works in this world. If our beliefis sound and we conduct our life on the path of Islam, the rightpath, the Siratul Mustaqeem, then the MeezanThe Arabic Letter Part 3 (17)- with a Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (18)),that is, the Balance will weigh in our favour. If the life inthis world is based on hypocrisy, and disbelief, the Meezan will weigh against us. How do we tip the Meezan in our favour, with Allah's help? We must learnsome good. Where do we learn? We learn at school. As it was statedin one of the previous articles, this life is a place of learning.This life is the school of learning. We must learn some goodness.And what is a school in Arabic? It is a Madrasah The Arabic Letter Part 3 (19)with a Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (20))!

MADRASAH

45 And Allah has created every animalfrom water: of them there are some that creep on their bellies;some that walk on two legs; and some that walk on four. Allahcreates what He wills: Allah has power over all things.
[Quran: AnNoor Chapter 24]

From the time we arecreated from water - Maa to the time of death - Mawt, we all go through the process of learning. Weeither go to a Madrasah to learn or even if we have neverattended a school, life itself is a Madrasahor a school. As we have already seen in a previous article, thatthe letter Meem when pronounced is the word MEEM The Arabic Letter Part 3 (21).In the word MEEM we have the letter Meem either side and the letterYa (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (22)) in the middle. Therefore, fromthe time of creation to the time of annihilation knowledge isa requirement. Since the letter Ya (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (23))represents knowledge, our function on earth is to seek knowledgefrom cradle to grave. Life in general is one long learning process.Life is a school or Madrasah. Knowledge is not only containedin the Quran but it is found in everything that Allah has created.The Quran is the guidance to understanding this knowledge. Everythingthat Allah has created has a purpose. Every visible thing hasan analogy in the hidden world. Allah confirms this in the Quran.

Remember when Musa (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (24)) went to school? Which Madrasah did Musa (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (25)) attend?Majmaa al Bahrain The Arabic Letter Part 3 (26)- The Meeting Point or the Junction of the two rivers.Where is that meeting point? The word Majmaais the word Jamaa The Arabic Letter Part 3 (27)To Add. Add what? Add a Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (28)) toachieve Majmaa The Arabic Letter Part 3 (29).

Now if we look at theword Majmaa we find that instead of Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (30)) Ya (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (31)) Meem(The Arabic Letter Part 3 (32)),

we have Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (33))Jeem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (34)) Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (35))followed by Ayn (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (36)).

That is, in the placeof the letter of knowledge (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (37)) wehave the letter Jeem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (38)). Why? BecauseMusa (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (39)) went to seek knowledge. In caseit has slipped the readers mind, the name Musa (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (40))also starts with the letter Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (41)).

In his quest for knowledge(The Arabic Letter Part 3 (42)), how many lessons did Musa (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (43)) receive? It was three (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (44)= 3). During the three lessons, Musa (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (45)) became impatient. He lacked patience,and patience in Arabic is Sabr which starts with the letter Saad(The Arabic Letter Part 3 (46)). In the Asma ul Husna the AttributeAs Saboor is the 99th Attribute in the 99Names of Allah. That is Sabr is the final lesson for us.

That is Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (47)=40) + Ya (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (48)= 10) + Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (49)=40) = Saad (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (50)= 90).

When the explanationwas given by Khidr (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (51)), the mystery ofthe lessons became clear or visible or Ayn (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (52)).

If we look at the numericalvalue of the for the word Majmaa we get:

Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (53))+ Jeem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (54)) + Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (55))+ Ayn (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (56)) = 40 + 3 + 40 + 70 = 153

The connection betweenthe words MEEM and Majmaais the number 9 for completion.

Meem Ya Meem = 90 = 9+ 0 = 9

Meem Jeem Meem Ayn =153 = 1 + 5 + 3 = 9

MUREED AND MURSHID

Similarly the word MEEM(The Arabic Letter Part 3 (57)The Arabic Letter Part 3 (58)The Arabic Letter Part 3 (59)), is the place of meeting of the studentand the teacher. The Mureed or student is at the first Meem(The Arabic Letter Part 3 (60)) and the Murshidor teacher is at the second Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (61)). Whatseparates these two Meems or the Mureed (first Meem) and the Murshid(second Meem)? It is the letter Ya (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (62)).The separation between the student and the teacher is knowledge(The Arabic Letter Part 3 (63)). The first one is seeking knowledgewhile the second one has already attained knowledge. The interestingpoint is that both the student and the teacher are at Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (64)). One wants to learn about Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (65))and the other knows something about Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (66)).

But why do we need toseek spiritual knowledge? Because Allah tells us to do so:

29 A Scripture that We have revealedto you, full of blessing, that they may ponder its revelations,and that those possessed of understanding may reflect.
[Quran: SaadChapter 38]

Notice the Chapter Namein the above reference. It is called Saad (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (67))!

We have already comeacross the letter Saad in the previous section. We could say thatthe letter Saad (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (68)) is the 'zippedup' version of the word MEEM The Arabic Letter Part 3 (69)The Arabic Letter Part 3 (70)The Arabic Letter Part 3 (71).

Before we move on tothe next section let us look at something interesting.

Allah's Rasoolperformed the Tawaf (around the Kaaba while riding his camel,and every time he reached the corner (of the Black Stone) he pointedat it with his hand and said, "Allahu Akbar." (Zainabsaid: The Prophet said, "An opening has been made in thewall of Jooj and Majooj like this and this," forming the number 90 (with histhumb and index finger).
[Sahih Bukhari]

For those who say Abjadnumerology is not part of Islam, can they explain what is meantby the highlighted part of the Hadees above? How does one formthe number 90 with just the thumb and index finger. Not with the'fingers'. Not with the 'hands'. Only with one thumb and one indexfinger. Could the answer be 90 = Saad The Arabic Letter Part 3 (72)?

The Arabic Letter Part 3 (73)
31 And He taught Adam all the names,then showed them to the angels, saying: Inform me of the namesof these, if you are truthful.
[Quran: AlBaqara Chapter 2]

Notice the last wordin the above reference - Saadiqeen The Arabic Letter Part 3 (74)-Truthful. Do you see a letter in the word Saadiqeenthat can be formed with a thumb and index finger that looks likean opening in a wall? Answer TRUTHFULLY !

The narrators of theabove Hadees knew the Abjad numerical value of the Arabic letters.Imam Bukhari (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (75)) understood the'90' and therefore no effort was made to explain this mystical'90'. He must have assumed all learned people knew what it meant,therefore an explanation was not necessary.

Why do todays 'learned'scholars and Imams deny that the Abjad numerologyis part of Islam? And talking about Imams...

THE IMAM The Arabic Letter Part 3 (76)

An Imam The Arabic Letter Part 3 (77)is a religious scholar. An Imam is the most learned scholar of Quran and Hadeesin his community. An Imam is one who has double Alif (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (78)) and double Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (79))in his title IMAM The Arabic Letter Part 3 (80). The duty of an Imam isnot to be taken lightly. On the one side, the Imam isa representative of Allah and His Rasool Muhammad The Arabic Letter Part 3 (81)tothe community. On the other side, an Imam isa representative of his community in front of Allah and His RasoolMuhammad The Arabic Letter Part 3 (82). Therefore an Imam isone who stands on a double edged sword. He cannot and must notlet down either side. If he lets down either side, he will beruined.

Allah's Rasoolsaid, "We are the last but will be the foremost to enterParadise." Rasool Allah added, "He who obeys me, obeysAllah, and he who disobeys me, disobeys Allah. He who obeys thechief, obeys me, and he who disobeys the chief, disobeys me. TheImam is like a shelter for whose safety the Muslims should fightand where they should seek protection. If the Imam orders peoplewith righteousness and rules justly, then he will be rewardedfor that, and if he does the opposite, he will be responsiblefor that."
[Sahih Bukhari]

ZAKAT

Since we are talkingabout Alif, Meem, Alif, Meem, or Double Alif (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (83))and double Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (84)). What does singleAlif and single Meem stand for? It stands for Zakat- Charity. In the Hadees there is an explanation of how to workout Zakat. Most of the calculations are basedon camels and sheep. In this day and age, not many people owncamels and sheep. So, for the majority of the Muslims the calculationis as follows:

.....And ifsomebody has got less than forty sheep, no Zakat is required,but if he wants to give, he can. For silver the Zakat is one-fortieth of the lot (i.e. 2.5%), and if its value isless than two-hundred Dirhams, Zakat is not required, but if theowner wants to pay he can.
[Sahih Bukhari]

Almost everyone is incontact with money or 'silver'. For the latter there is a clearcut formula in the above Hadees. Zakat is One Fortieth.

Which is the same as1 OVER 40. Or, the same as Alif (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (85)) overMeem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (86)). Or to say it in yet anotherway, Allah's blessings on Muhammad The Arabic Letter Part 3 (87)and his community.

Whatever we give in theName of Allah in this world, Allah gives us the same thing, 10(The Arabic Letter Part 3 (88)) times in this world. The questionthen arises: If Allah returns our charity 10 times in this world,then what can we expect in the next world? The answer is: Allahwill also reward us a further 40 times in the next world in whatever'currency' Allah wishes. How can that be?

Mawlana Abul Noor MohammadBashir has stated in one his books: In the Quran, wheneverthere is a mention of Salah, Zakat is mentioned right next to it.The reason being that Salah is necessary to keep the body andgarments clean and pure. That is the outer purification. Zakat is purification of your wealth. Zakatis necessary to keep the heart and mind pure by eating halaalfood from halaal money. That is the inner purification.

Now let us clarify theabove. If Salah and Zakatare related as shown in the Quran, then so is the reward for thesetwo good deeds. Since Allah asked for 50 prayers per day and agreedon 5 prayers per day, Allah will still reward the Muslims with50 prayers per day. Similarly Charity is rewarded 10 times inthis world and 40 times reward is put aside for the next world.That makes the reward for Zakat also equal to 50.

There is one more Alif(The Arabic Letter Part 3 (89)) and Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (90))that needs to be covered.

ALIF AND MEEM

Towards the end of lastcentury and Millennium, the Muslims have been persecuted in manydifferent countries. Some of it has been self inflicted out ofgreed. Like the Iran and Iraq war. While on other occasions ithas been due to outside influences. Allah has been testing thefaith of the Muslims. Every time, the Muslims have looked towardsAmerica for help. Whether it is military or monetary aid.

There is a very importantlesson in this. Both the words Military and Monetaryhave the letter Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (91)) while the wordAid has the letter Alif (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (92)).Even the name America has the letters Alif (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (93))and Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (94)) init. The Muslims have got confused. They are subconsciously awarethat they need to look for the Alif (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (95))and Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (96)). They need to turn towards Alifand Meem. They need to ask Allah and His Rasool Muhammad The Arabic Letter Part 3 (97) for assistance. Instead they ask Americafor Military and Monetary Aid. Theseare the same people who say that the Arabic letters have no meaning.They say Alif Laam Meem either have no meaning or only Allah knowswhat they mean. Yet they themselves are unaware how they are beingmanipulated by Shaytan to leave Allah and Muhammad The Arabic Letter Part 3 (98)and look for assistance from America. The secret is in the soundof the letters.

Now let us finish witha double Meem for Millennium.

THE MILLENNIUM

The word Millennium starts with the letter 'M' forMeem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (99)) and finishes with the letter'M' for Meem (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (100)) !In other words, there are two Meems or 'M's in the word Millennium.We are in the year 2000 AD. For those who will say that it isthe Christian year 2000, then the question arises: Who createdIsa (The Arabic Letter Part 3 (101)) in the first place, and senthim as Messenger?

116 They say: "Allah has begottena son"; Glory be to Him. To Him belongs all that is in theheavens and on earth; everything renders worship to Him.
[Quran: AlBaqara Chapter 2]

For those who will saythat the year 2000 is based on the solar calendar, then the questionarises: Who created the sun?

13 Hemerges Night into Day and He merges Day into Night and He hassubjected the sun and the moon (to His Law): each one runs itscourse for a term appointed. Such is Allah your Rabb (Lord): toHim belongs all Dominion. And those whom you invoke besides Himhave not the least power.
[Quran: AlFatir Chapter 35]

For those who will saythat the word 'Millennium' is not an Arabic word, then the questionarises: Who taught Adam all the names?

31 And He taught Adam the nature ofall things; then He placed them before the angels and said: "TellMe the nature of these if you are truthful."
[Quran: AlBaqara Chapter 2]

There is a lesson inwhat has just been mentioned for those who can think.

Even in other languagesAllah is reminding the Muslims to wake up. The word Millennium is a reminder from Allah for the Muslims to onceagain understand the true faith and meaning of Islam. Allah evenimpels the non-Muslims to use words that are relevant to the Muslims.So why do the Muslims fail to 'see' the signs, reminders and warningsfrom Allah?

May Allah awaken theMuslims and make them a shining example to the rest of humanity.Ameen.

Only Allah KnowsBest!

Darood (Blessings)and Salaam (Peace) on Muhammad, his Family, and his Companions.
