The Qalam (Pen) & The Lawh (Preserved Tablet)

Allah—The Sublime—said: (Inscribed) in a Tablet Preserved! (Koran [85:22]).

And again the Royal Highness said: By the Pen and the (Record) which (they) write. (Koran [68:1])  

“Allah created the Preserved Tablet (measured) like as a journey of hundred years and said to Pen—before the creation of anything and while Hu (IT) was upon the ‘Arsh (Throne): Write! But the Pen replied: What should I write? And Hu commanded: Write My Knowledge about My Creation and to move (long the Tablet writing) what shall befall through the universe until the Day of Judgment”. (Derived Abul-Sheikh from Ibn Abbas)

Description of The Qalam (Pen)

“With Allah there is a (writing) Tablet, one of its faces is made from ruby, the second face made from green emerald, its Pen made from Light. Within it all things are created, within it sustenance is provided (by Hu), within it life is given, within it death is given, within it power is given, within it Hu does what of happenings each day and each night.” (Hadith (Prophetic Narration) derived by Abul-Sheikh from Malik Ibn Dinār)

In similar narrations stated that Allah looks upon this Tablet, each day, 360 glances to inscribe all that is to happen to the creation. The Pen is from light and its writings are from light too.



Hu (IT) after the creation of the ‘Arsh (Throne) and the water/liquid, created the mighty pen. This pen is a fantastically large object fashioned from light. Thus the forth creation became the Preserved Tablet, and some scholars say it is above the ‘Arsh (Throne) and some others say it is below the ‘Arsh (Throne) and again it is a terrifically large construction its length measured by traveling around during five hundred years (Light years?). As the evidence within the Koran supports: Verily We shall give life to the dead, and We record that which they send before and that which they leave behind, and of all things have We taken account in a clear Book (Koran [36:12]).

If you look at the Tunneling Microscope in the photo, you can see for placing or sensing a single Atom, such a large machinery is needed! Imagine a machine constructed to place and record the positions, and other characteristics, of every particle, every wave, every force, ever molecule, every planet, every living being and every human being and so on. That recording machine must be built from exotic material and in sizes beyond our ability to measure and that have been coded into phrases like ‘500 years of travel’ or words like emerald and ruby.

باب ما جاء في اللوح والقلم
قال تعالى: )في لَوحٍ مَحفوظ(، وقال: )ن وَالقَلمِ(.

وصف اللوح المحفوظ
أخرج أبو الشيخ- بسند جيد- عن ابن عباس قال: (خلق الله اللوح المحفوظ كمسيرة مائة عام، وقال للقلم- قبل أن يخلق الخلق وهو على العرش: اكتب.. فقال القلم: وما أكتب? قال: علمي في خلقي، فجرى بما هو كائن إلى يوم القيامة).

وصف القلم
وأخرج أبو الشيخ من طرق عن مالك بن دينار عن أنس قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: (إن لله لوحا، أحد وجهيه ياقوتة، والوجه الثاني زمردة خضراء، قلمه النور، فيه يخلق، وفيه يرزق، وفيه يحيى، وفيه يميت، وفيه يعز، وفيه يفعل ما يشاء في كل يوم وليلة).
وأخرج أبو الشيخ والطبراني من طريق سعيد بن جبير عن ابن عباس قال: (إن الله خلق من درة بيضاء، دفتاه من ياقوتة حمراء وزبرجد، قلمه نور، وكتابه نور ينظر منه كل يوم ثلاثمائة وستين نظرة، يخلق فيها ويرزق، ويعز ويذل، ويفعل ما يشاء).
