الَّذِىْ جَعَلَ لَكُمُ الْاَرْضَ فِرَاشًا وَّالسَّمَاۗءَ بِنَاۗءً ۠ وَّاَنْزَلَ مِنَ السَّمَاۗءِ مَاۗءً فَاَخْرَجَ بِهٖ مِنَ الثَّمَرٰتِ رِزْقًا لَّكُمْ ۚ فَلَا تَجْعَلُوْا لِلّٰهِ اَنْدَادًا وَّاَنْتُمْ تَعْلَمُوْنَ

The first placement of the root word (خ ر ج/يَخْرُجُ) is in Verse No. 22 Surah No. 02: In which Allah Subhan O Talah explain his glory , “He is the One Who has made the earth a place of settlement for you and the sky a canopy; and sends down rain from the sky, causing fruits to grow as a provision for you. So do not knowingly set up equals to Allah [in worship].

وَاَخْرَجَتِ الْاَرْضُ اَثْقَالَهَا

The last placement of the root word (خ ر ج/يَخْرُجُ) is in Verse No. 02 Surah No. 99: In which Allah Subhan O Talah elaborates the scene prior to the day of judgement . Our earth will reveal whatever it holds . And when the earth throws out ˹all˺ its contents.


وَاتَّبَعُوْا مَا تَتْلُوا الشَّيٰطِيْنُ عَلٰي مُلْكِ سُلَيْمٰنَ ۚ وَمَا كَفَرَ سُلَيْمٰنُ وَلٰكِنَّ الشَّيٰطِيْنَ كَفَرُوْا يُعَلِّمُوْنَ النَّاسَ السِّحْرَ ۤوَمَآ اُنْزِلَ عَلَي الْمَلَكَيْنِ بِبَابِلَ ھَارُوْتَ وَمَارُوْتَ ۭ وَمَا يُعَلِّمٰنِ مِنْ اَحَدٍ حَتّٰى يَقُوْلَآ اِنَّمَا نَحْنُ فِتْنَةٌ فَلَا تَكْفُرْ ۭ فَيَتَعَلَّمُوْنَ مِنْهُمَا مَا يُفَرِّقُوْنَ بِهٖ بَيْنَ الْمَرْءِ وَزَوْجِهٖ ۭ وَمَا ھُمْ بِضَاۗرِّيْنَ بِهٖ مِنْ اَحَدٍ اِلَّا بِاِذْنِ اللّٰهِ ۭ وَيَتَعَلَّمُوْنَ مَا يَضُرُّھُمْ وَلَا يَنْفَعُھُمْ ۭ وَلَقَدْ عَلِمُوْا لَمَنِ اشْتَرٰىھُ مَا لَهٗ فِي الْاٰخِرَةِ مِنْ خَلَاقٍ ڜ وَلَبِئْسَ مَا شَرَوْا بِهٖٓ اَنْفُسَھُمْ ۭ لَوْ كَانُوْا يَعْلَمُوْنَ ١

The first placement of the root word (من | هما/مِنْهُمَا) is in Verse No. 102 Surah No. 02 . In which Allah Subhan O Talah is revealing an historic event from the time Prophet Solomon. Allah Subhan O Talah is articulating their wrong deeds in the following context. They [instead] followed the magic promoted by the devils during the reign of Solomon. Never did Solomon disbelieve, rather the devils disbelieved. They taught magic to the people, along with what had been revealed to the two angels, Harut and Marut, in Babylon. The two angels never taught anyone without saying, “We are only a test [for you], so do not abandon [your] faith.” Yet people learned [magic] that caused a rift [even] between husband and wife; although their magic could not harm anyone except by Allah’s Will. They learned what harmed them and did not benefit them—although they already knew that whoever buys into magic would have no share in the Hereafter. Miserable indeed was the price for which they sold their souls, if only they knew!

يَخْرُجُ مِنْهُمَا اللُّؤْلُؤُ وَالْمَرْجَانُ

The last placement of the root word (من | هما/مِنْهُمَا) is in Verse No. 22 Surah No. 55:From both of them emerge pearl and coral.


اِنَّ اللّٰهَ يُدْخِلُ الَّذِيْنَ اٰمَنُوْا وَعَمِلُوا الصّٰلِحٰتِ جَنّٰتٍ تَجْرِيْ مِنْ تَحْتِهَا الْاَنْهٰرُ يُحَلَّوْنَ فِيْهَا مِنْ اَسَاوِرَ مِنْ ذَهَبٍ وَّلُؤْلُؤًا ۭ وَلِبَاسُهُمْ فِيْهَا حَرِيْرٌ

The first placement of the root word (ل أ ل أ/اللُّؤْلُؤُ) is in Verse No. 23 Surah No. 22 :Allah Subhan O Talah is describing the reward for those who are not involved in the filthy act such as magic .Indeed, Allah will admit those who believe and do righteous deeds to gardens beneath which rivers flow. They will be adorned therein with bracelets of gold and pearl, and their garments therein will be silk.

وَيَطُوْفُ عَلَيْهِمْ وِلْدَانٌ مُّخَلَّدُوْنَ ۚ اِذَا رَاَيْتَهُمْ حَسِبْتَهُمْ لُؤْلُؤًا مَّنْثُوْرًا

The last placement of the root word (ل أ ل أ/اللُّؤْلُؤُ) is in Verse No. 19 Surah No. 76 :There will circulate among them young boys made eternal. When you see them, you would think them [as beautiful as] scattered pearls.


وَهُوَ الَّذِيْ مَرَجَ الْبَحْرَيْنِ ھٰذَا عَذْبٌ فُرَاتٌ وَّھٰذَا مِلْحٌ اُجَاجٌ ۚ وَجَعَلَ بَيْنَهُمَا بَرْزَخًا وَّحِجْرًا مَّحْجُوْرًا

The first placement of the root word (م ر ج/وَالْمَرْجَانُ) is in Verse No. 53 Surah No. 25:And it is He who has released [simultaneously] the two seas, one fresh and sweet and one salty and bitter, and He placed between them a barrier and prohibiting partition.

كَاَنَّهُنَّ الْيَاقُوْتُ وَالْمَرْجَانُ

The last placement of the root word (م ر ج/وَالْمَرْجَانُ) is in Verse No. 58 Surah No. 55:As if they were rubies and coral.


The pearl (اللُّؤْلُؤُ) and the coral (وَالْمَرْجَانُ) occur six times in the Holy Quran and how peculiar Allah Subhan O Talah is as far as the balance is concern. He caused this balance in placing these words in different Surahs of the Holy Quran and in parallel Allah Subhan O Talah repeated the word with same calculated manner.
