A Wird for Traffic Jams? I Don’t Know! [Quote – 775]

Dec 15, 2016

Living and driving in the United States, or UK or Europe, or Little Trinidad, or Big Messy New Delhi or Bombay or Marhum Cairo, who does not get stuck in a traffic jam?

How scary the situation could be depends on the individual, most likely — and a lot of other things. 

But does the Qur’an come to the rescue? Who could tell.

The Qur’an is supposed to. There is not a human ailment or malady — difficulty? — for which the Qur’an is not a cure. So declares the Qur’an.

And we are not talking all of the Qur’an. Or even entire Aayaat (plural for Aayat) of the Qur’an. 

Or even full words. 

But each and every single letter of the Qur’an, such as Alif, and Laam, and Meem

That is right. When it comes to the Qur’an, each letter counts.

And that is a direct paraphrase from a Hadith Sharif

So, when stuck in a hopeless bumper-to-bumper traffic jam — a daunting and seemingly insurmountable obstacle — should you do what Hazrat Musa, alaihis salam, did?

He declared: 

“Absolutely not. 
This is not going to stop me. 
For, my God is with me,
And he will open the way for me.” 

The Qur’an:

Kallaa Inna Ma’iya Rabbee,

See the meaning of the expression “Hidaayat” — “opening the way”? 

And in this case, parting the sea, nothing less.

The rest, as they say, is Qur’an. You know: the Qur’an tells you what transpired thereafter.
