Ramadan Reading: a Few Notes on the Nineteenth Juz

Note 1: The opening of Surah 26

These are the verses of the clear Book. (26:2)

These are the fragmented, scattered signage of the womb/kitab/A-L-M of Clarity, encapsulating the Divine Light. The ayat necessarily obscure and obfuscate (either in play or in irony, always in Love), by virtue of their encapsulation of Light. The womb itself is pure Clarity. And the tie of kinship links back the signs to the mother book, a thousand (differentiated, scattered by virtue of my signing them) umbilical cords.

Perhaps you would kill yourself with grief that they will not be believers. (26:3)

“You” is the Real Self, killing its selfhood of illusion, in cycles of karmic replication. Karmic replication = samsara = chains of “them”, the forgotten former skins/shells/husks/qliphoth, each, when discarded, remnants of disbelief.

Another name for these chains of former husks of your selfhood are “necks” of disbelief, with the True Self being the “head” or Little Face.

If We willed, We could send down to them from the sky a sign for which their necks would remain humbled. (26:5)

The revelation is sent from the sky (from Prophecy): it is signs, scattered. The sign itself humbles the neck of disbelief. Or, more accurately, as an outer husk, the sign is a neck of disbelief. By virtue of its scattered, encapsulated form.
But at the same time, the sign has an its inner, inseminating Light, a seed planted within the fields of difference/shariah — this aspect of the sign provides the humbling.

Thus a humbled neck = signage from the sky.

The sign to be looked at is planted within the earth: it is the seed, scattered Light, within immanent (earthly) planes of an infinitude of cultures, times, places, loves, houses, lives, nobility:

Did they not look at the earth – how much We have produced therein from every noble kind? Indeed in that is a sign, but most of them were not to be believers. (26:7-8)
