The first placement of the word مُسَلَّمَةٌ is in Verse # 71 Chapter # 02 in which Allah Subhan O Talah ordered to slaughter a cow. However, Nation of Moses(A.S) was involved in questioning the details of how Cow should look alike, What would be the color? What should be the age of a cow? They involved Moses(A.S) in a meticulous detail process that he had to go back and forth to Allah Subhan O Talah for all the clarification. Every time he returns with an answer they were ready with a new question. 

In a concluding remark, Allah Subhan O Talah closed discussion ‘It is a cow neither trained to plow the earth nor to irrigate the field, one free from fault with no spot upon her.’ “. Their reply was قَالُوا الْـــــٰٔنَ جِئْتَ بِالْحَقِّ and in the end, they slaughter the Cow.

قَالَ اِنَّهٗ يَقُوْلُ اِنَّهَا بَقَرَةٌ لَّا ذَلُوْلٌ تُثِيْرُ الْاَرْضَ وَلَا تَسْقِى الْحَرْثَ ۚ مُسَلَّمَةٌ لَّا شِيَةَ فِيْهَا ۭ قَالُوا الْـــــٰٔنَ جِئْتَ بِالْحَقِّ ۭ فَذَبَحُوْھَا وَمَا كَادُوْا يَفْعَلُوْنَ

He said, “He says, ‘It is a cow neither trained to plow the earth nor to irrigate the field, one free from fault with no spot upon her.’ ” They said, “Now you have come with the truth.” So they slaughtered her, but they could hardly do it.

Unequivocal direction for the believers not to engage in doubting the fact about لَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ and the set of guidance revealed in the entire Holy Qur’an.

The last placement of the word سَلٰمٌ is in Verse # 05 Chapter # 97 . Allah Subhan O Talah will shower Peace and Tranquility on those who are adhering the principles defined by Allah Subhan O Talah.


The first placement of the word هِىَ ۭ is in Verse # 68 Chapter # 02 . What we discuss earlier Ayat Allah Subhan O Talah is conveying the same message.

قَالُوا ادْعُ لَنَا رَبَّكَ يُبَيِّنْ لَّنَا مَا هِىَ ۭ قَالَ اِنَّهٗ يَقُوْلُ اِنَّهَا بَقَرَةٌ لَّا فَارِضٌ وَّلَا بِكْرٌ ۭ عَوَانٌۢ بَيْنَ ذٰلِكَ ۭ فَافْعَلُوْا مَا تُـؤْمَرُوْنَ

They said, “Call upon your Lord to make clear to us what it is.” [Moses] said, “[ Allah ] says, ‘It is a cow which is neither old nor virgin, but median between that,’ so do what you are commanded.

The last placement of the word هِيَهْ is in Verse # 10 Chapter # 101 . You do not know the status of His grandeur and His magnificence .

وَمَآ اَدْرٰىكَ مَا هِيَهْ

And what can make you know what that is?


The first placement of word حَتّٰى is in Verse # 55 Chapter # 02 in which Moses(A.S) nation bring forward a compulsion that we will not believe your Lord until we see Allah Subhan O Talah.

وَاِذْ قُلْتُمْ يٰمُوْسٰى لَنْ نُّؤْمِنَ لَكَ حَتّٰى نَرَى اللّٰهَ جَهْرَةً فَاَخَذَتْكُمُ الصّٰعِقَةُ وَاَنْتُمْ تَنْظُرُوْنَ

And [recall] when you said, “O Moses, we will never believe you until we see Allah outright”; so the thunderbolt took you while you were looking on.

Allah Subhan O Talah mash them with الصّٰعِقَةُ instant detonation.

The last placement of the word حَتّٰى is in Verse # 02 Chapter # 102 . Once they got smashed by Allah Subhan O Talah so their next place will be obviously their graves . Allah Subhan O Talah concluded with

حَتّٰى زُرْتُمُ الْمَقَابِرَ

until you end up in ˹your˺ graves.

So in graves they will know about the facts and the result of their deeds.


The first placement of the word لِيُطْلِعَكُمْ is in Verse # 179 Chapter # 03 . Allah Subhan O Talah is defining the limitation of human intellect and his capacity . That as normal human being you will not able to see Allah Subhan O Talah except Allah chooses of His messengers whom He wills .

مَا كَانَ اللّٰهُ لِيَذَرَ الْمُؤْمِنِيْنَ عَلٰي مَآ اَنْتُمْ عَلَيْهِ حَتّٰى يَمِيْزَ الْخَبِيْثَ مِنَ الطَّيِّبِ ۭ وَمَا كَانَ اللّٰهُ لِيُطْلِعَكُمْ عَلَي الْغَيْبِ وَلٰكِنَّ اللّٰهَ يَجْتَبِىْ مِنْ رُّسُلِھٖ مَنْ يَّشَاۗءُ ۠ فَاٰمِنُوْا بِاللّٰهِ وَرُسُلِھٖ ۚ وَاِنْ تُؤْمِنُوْا وَتَتَّقُوْا فَلَكُمْ اَجْرٌ عَظِيْمٌ

Allah would not leave the believers in that [state] you are in [presently] until He separates the evil from the good. Nor would Allah reveal to you the unseen. But [instead], Allah chooses of His messengers whom He wills, so believe in Allah and His messengers. And if you believe and fear Him, then for you is a great reward.

Allah would not leave the believers in that [state] you are in [presently] until He separates the evil from the good. He will filter out those who believe what His messengers believe and those are who are disbelievers.

In the end, He is advertising a great deal for those who believe, fear him and what has been revealed on His messengers for them is great reward اَجْرٌ عَظِيْمٌ. And you know what is اَجْرٌ عَظِيْمٌ Allah Subhan O Talah will open their heart, hearing capabilities will be increased and they will be blessed with far-sighted vision.

The last placement of the word تَـطَّلِــعُ is in Verse # 07 Chapter # 104 in which Allah Subhan O Talah is revealing the opposite side of his wrath. What He will do those who do not believe what His messengers believe. He is declaring that there is a strong punishment ( الْاَفْــِٕدَةِ ) for them

الَّتِيْ تَـطَّلِــعُ عَلَي الْاَفْــِٕدَةِ

Allah Subhan O Talah is announcing what type of torture they would expect. If we look for the details of الْاَفْــِٕدَةِ . Its actually is (بِيسَلفيد)bisulfite . Sodium Bisulfite is a reducing agent. Emits highly toxic gaseous sulfur dioxide.


The first placement of the word فَانْفَجَرَتْ is in Verse # 60 Chapter # 02 in which Allah Subhan O Talah is lime lighting an alluring fable of Moses(A.S) when his people are looking for water. And [recall] when Moses prayed for water for his people, so We said, “Strike with your staff the stone.” And there gushed forth from it twelve springs, and every people knew its watering place. “Eat and drink from the provision of Allah, and do not commit abuse on the earth, spreading corruption.”

Basically اختبار التفجرi is detonation test. Detonation of Fajr is disclosure of Sunrise/Morning.

The last placement of the word الْفَجْرِ is in Verse # 05 Chapter # 97 .Allah Subhan O Talah is declaring that لَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ is a night a of peace and tranquility . Ignite with peace and end with bright sunny day.

In the first two verses of Surah Al-Qadr Allah Subhan O Talah is mentioning that we do not know the importance of لَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ. In the middle, He is annunciating that this Night is far better than one thousand months and the last two verses are explaining what happens during the night. The angels and the Spirit [i.e., Gabriel] descend therein by permission of their Lord for every matter and the pinnacle of the night is the detonation of Fajr. A disclosure of Sunrise and the end of the night.
