SURAH AL- BAQRAH – [2 - 39]



البقرة – SURAH AL- BAQRAH – [2 - 39]

AL-BAQRAH – THE PROCESS OF INQUIRY AND RESEARCH TO THE UTMOST

THE THEME OF BOOK QURAN IN SHORT:

The surah is not about Cow or its progeny as generally believed. Al-Baqrah means a specific thought process which awakens the dead senses. But our traditional interpreters have woven a stupid story around the verse [67-73] to portray that a part of the dead cow can bring a dead man back to life thus destroying the value of the potent message and insulting the intellect of the author of the book Quran. This way starting from surah Fateha to surah An-Naas most of the title of the surahs are distorted, which are very important clue to understand the entire surah.


Before trying to understand the book Quran it is important to know the dialogue or the theophanical format of its manuscript. In Quranic context Allah / Rabb is the Consciousness portrayed as the amphitheater, while mind is the lower stage or lower consciousness [al-aradh] in which different actors [thoughts/senses] perform in order to keep the show or the theater alive. As-Samawaat is the higher consciousness from where we get guidance. The important term al-ardh & as-samawaat 
combine with its derivatives have occurred 461 times and 379 times respectively. Its correct understanding is very important for inferring the entire theme of the book Quran. Confining its meaning as Earth or Sky or Heaven will take us nowhere.

A real actor is one who follows his inherent script [Al-Kitab] to his best potentials without imitating or copying the role of other actors. Our own thoughts are depicted or personified as protagonists of the play. The entire problem starts when one fails to identify / recognize our own embedded script [Al-Kitab or Kitabil Allah] and the inherent voice of Allah [Rasul Allah].  We often try to emulate / copy other actors as we fail to recognize or follow our own script or inner voice. The act of emulating others is term as shirk in Quranic parlance, that is mixing or adulterating our original role with roles of others. Everyone has their own unique role to play; adapting others role is the biggest injustice to the self. The entire narration of the book Quran is internal conversation that exist in our embedded script but we cannot see [bil-gayab]. The script [Al-Kitab] does not mention any physical entity however the character of the book Quran are personified or illustrated by the help of examples / parables so any layman can also understand its essence easily. But unfortunately in the minds of simple readers it appears that the characters and the supernatural narratives are real; thanks to the backup stories provided the Biblical and Islamic history. 

The characters from Nuh to Mohammed are names which have meanings, applications and  functions that were taught to Adam for operating machine called Mankind.

The author of the book uses 1st, 2nd and 3rd person to narrate this enchanting philosophy. The entire 'Kingdom of God' is inside us; the readers are requested to keep this in mind while studying this magnificent book.

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ 

الٓمٓ   - These letters are called حروف مقطعات ḥurūf muqaṭṭaʿāt "disjointed letters" or "disconnected letters" - They are separate alphabets and cannot be read or pronounced jointly.
  
A stroke resembling a madda is generally put above abbreviations. Thus ALM [الم]is most probably a short form [الاختصار] of Surah Al-Fateha. Alphabets ا ل م are the most recurring alphabets in Surah Al-Fateha, this also strongly indicates that ALM  الٓمٓ  is a symbol of Surah Fateha. Abbreviations are formed or derived by selecting the initial letters of the word or the phrase. The use of this acronym reflected a tendency of those narrators to economize in time and space especially at a time when the writing tools were primitive and hard to use. To save the time and space, writers tend to use abbreviations to avoid frequently repeated words or phrases and even passages particularly in written discourse.

Surah Fateha has many attributes, each one indicating a different aspect of its meaning. In the eyes of Arabs if a thing is recognized by many different labels or names, that is the indication of its predominant significance. Some names of surah Fateha are [Al-Fateha, Ummal-Quran, Ummal Kitab, Sab'ul Mathani, Al-Hamd, As-Salah [The Connection], Ash-Shifa, Ar-Ruqyah (The Ascent), Asasal-Quran (The Foundation), Al-Kanz (The Treasure), Ash-Shukr, Ad-Dua, Ash-Shafiyah (The Restoration), Al-Kafiyah [The Sufficient], Al-Wafiyah (The Compact / Covenant) ].... ALIF LAAM MEEM is repeated 6 times in the entire Quran. In short ALM or surah Fateha is a concise message of the entire Quran, which continuously reminds us about the Rabbul Alameen and Maliki Yaumi Deen, that's why surah Fateha is also known as Ummal Quran & Ummal Kitab. In Indian subcontinent it is also called Alam ka surah.

One more strong reason why I believed that ALM stands for surah Fateha is all the juz / parts / parah of the Quran are named after the phrases that come in the beginning of the juz / volume. At the beginning of Juz one of book Quran is Surah Fateha thus the entire Juz / volume is name after surah Fateha [ALM]. This also signifies ALM is a short form of surah Fateha. The naming of volumes after the the beginning phrases of each Juz strongly suggest that ALM stands for Surah Fateha. It is common in the indian sub-continent to call surah Fateha as الٓمٓ surah or volume 1 is recognized as alam ka para / juz.
In short Surah Fateha is a concise prescription of Al-Kitab which gives lot of information of our Rabb [Consciousness] in a nutshell and vividly explains it through 114 chapters of the Quran.


2   ذَ‌ٰلِكَ الْكِتَابُ لَا رَيْبَ ۛ فِيهِ ۛ هُدًى لِّلْمُتَّقِينَ    

It is that state of script, no doubt in it are guidance for those who are mindful of their thoughts [Thoughtful, very careful, extremely cautious, diligent, who are conscious of the Consciousness]-

ZalikalKitabu is the subject of the first predicate la raiba [no doubt / no uncertainty]. The use of the demonstrative pronoun here is intended to describe the status or the position of Al-Kitab [the script]. A guidance [huda] is a second predicate meaning that it is the script [al-Kitab] which is a guide for the thoughtful namely those that tend to be extra careful by adhering to the commands of the script [al-Kitab]. Note the script [al-kitab] is a guide only for those who are thoughtful / use their intellect, who ponder, it is not a book for those who did PhD in Arabic literature or whose mother tongue is Arabic.


[The KITAB is an inherent script. Please refer [2:44, 2:121, 2:129, 2:144, 2:146, 2;151, 2:177, 2:231, 3:164, 6:20] - It is not easy to follow the script unless you are Mutaqi = diligent / cautious / prudent / conscious / those who think / one who guard their thoughts / observe extraordinarily, 

ذَ‌ٰلِكَ masculine singular demonstrative pronoun which also signifies a continuation of surah fateha [ALM]. Surah Fateha is an concise script bestowed [ أَنْعَمْتَupon our self so that we walk under its light. Here ذَ‌ٰلِكَ is pointing towards our inherent script which is stored in our subconscious mind which is referred to as Al-Kitab in the Quranic context. In it are guidance for those who are extremely cautious or mindful or conscious. Our subconscious mind has virtually unlimited memory bank [21:10]. It permanently stores everything that ever happens to us. Everything is written / scripted in it [6:38] and its a clear a guide [Imam] and we will be judged according to the record of our inherent script / book as it drives our every action [17:71] [36:12].

It is very important to understand the word Al-Kitab / Kitab - الْكِتَابُ - Zalikal-Kitab in this context means innate script, chronicle, the script, text - something which is written or decreed or recorded or programmed within us. We are the author of that script. Al-Kitab in Quranic context does not mean a physical book written on leaves, leather or paper, the Al of Kitab points to something more precise and specifically related to different individuals. Kitab is an innate script which discusses us or in which our memories are stored [21:10] embedded in all of us and can be recalled or recollected through connection [salat] and  Zikr [29:45] - the inherent messengers convey it in our own language [14:4] - The meaning of Tilawat is [تَتْلُونَ الْكِتَابَ 2:44] to follow, imitate, study, walk behind, rehearse, accompany-حَقَّ تِلاَوَتِهِ - is achieved only when we study, copy, walk behind, rehearse and accompany our Kitab 24x7. This what Haq Tilawat of Al-Kitab means 2:121 - Note the word Tilawat does not mean to read / sing in rhythemic tone but it means to walk the talk [To perform actions consistent with one's claims]. Prescriptions or scripts are not for just reading purpose; they are to be followed persistently. And we all should, understand, study, talk and consult with our sub-conscious mind as it treasures the greatest exemplary lessons for all time.

Note Al-Kitab is commonly inferred as the book Quran which in incorrect.

 الَّذِينَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِالْغَيْبِ وَيُقِيمُونَ الصَّلَاةَ وَمِمَّا رَزَقْنَاهُمْ يُنفِقُونَ   


Those who continuously keep trust in the transformation of self [يُؤْمِنُونَ] with the unseen [بِالْغَيْبِ] and they install the process of connection [salat] and out of what we have provided them they are ready to pay the price / invest [salable in the path of the Rabb] 

يُقِيمُونَ - they themselves establish - form iv imperfect verb
 الصَّلَاةَ - process of connection - root word is وص ل - accusative feminine noun
يُنفِقُونَ - They themselves continuously pay the price - form iv imperfect verb

Salat is a thought process which connects us with our consciousness [Rabb] and our inherent book [Kitab], Salat prevent us from anything which is outside our book / script [29:45] - This is done by the help of reconciliatory thoughts & deeds - The opposite of Salat is Shawaat (lusty / alluring thoughts) - because of shahwaat [lusty / thoughts that create strong feeling of annoyance and jealousy] - because of strong feeling of annoyance and jealousy we get distracted from our goal [Qibla] and lose our connection [SALAT] with righteous / peaceful thoughts & deeds so due to that disconnection we won't be able to enter the hidden garden of knowledge [Al-Jannah] - [19:59-60] - Those having reconciliatory nature [Ammale-saulehat] will have their reward from their Consciousness [Rabb] [2:62], that's why we are often reminded to install the thought process called salat [connecting our thoughts with our goal / aim] but this not at all easy, we have to pay a high price for it to achieve that permanent connection.



بِالْغَيْبِ - Bil-gayab must be understood in the context of Al-Kitab [21:49, 34:3], the arcane script which is embedded in all of us and in modern terminology it can be termed as genome. This compiled inherent script [Al-Kitab] must be discovered, understood, pondered and must be closely diligently followed if we want to succeed. 


4   وَالَّذِينَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِمَا أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ وَمَا أُنزِلَ مِن قَبْلِكَ وَبِالْآخِرَةِ هُمْ يُوقِنُونَ

The Allah [system of Consciousness]

Azaab 
عَذَابٌ means something which we like to indulge in without realizing its harmful effect, that actually we are going through punishment and sufferings.

In their alteration of mind is a sickness [short of knowledge], so Allah [system of consciousness] has increased / prolongs their sickness [lack of knowledge]; and for them is a chastisement [Azaab] extreme pain because they used to always lie.

11
 وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمْ لَا تُفْسِدُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ قَالُوا إِنَّمَا نَحْنُ مُصْلِحُونَ

And when it is said [reasoned] for them, "Do not be the cause of dishonesty / corruption in the lower consciousness," they say, "We ourselves are reformers."

From the verse 2:11 it is clear that the above verses are dialogue between our inherent thoughts - corruption in the lower consciousness can only be caused by our thoughts. The conversation is not between any particular community or individuals.

تُفْسِدُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ - you will notice that corruption / mischief [fasad] is often linked with al-aradh which is wrongly translated as the Earth and the preposition fi فِي which actually means IN is translated as ON to justify the preconceived narrative. Why al-ardh caanot be translated as the Earth is further explained in verse 2:22

 تُفْسِدُوا
 - form iv imperfect verb - be the cause of dishonesty / corruption
مُصْلِحُونَ - form IV verb active participle - ourselves are reformers

And when it is said for them [to the corrupted thoughts], "have firm belief / trust as the agitated / restless minds have firm belief / trust," they say, "Should we feel secured as the unwise have felt secure?" Beware, it is they themselves who are the unwise, but they know not.

And when they meet those who feel safe/secure, they say, "We feel secure/safe"; but when they are alone with their untruthful ones [satan], they say, "Indeed, we are with you; we were just seeking to mock."

Idle mind is devils workshop - 2:14 also indicates that it is the conversation between trustworthy [momin] and ignorant / satanic [kafir] thoughts. Do we ever in our life met Satan? The entire conversation is happening in unseen [gayab] because it is a internal conversation with our thought.

transgression [while] they wander blindly.

Those are the ones who have purchased the process of error [in exchange] for guidance, so their transaction [of thoughts] has brought no profit, nor were they are guided.


17 مَثَلُهُمْ كَمَثَلِ الَّذِي اسْتَوْقَدَ نَارًا فَلَمَّا أَضَاءَتْ مَا حَوْلَهُ ذَهَبَ اللَّهُ بِنُورِهِمْ وَتَرَكَهُمْ فِي ظُلُمَاتٍ لَّا يُبْصِرُونَ

19 أَوْ كَصَيِّبٍ مِّنَ السَّمَاءِ فِيهِ ظُلُمَاتٌ وَرَعْدٌ وَبَرْقٌ يَجْعَلُونَ أَصَابِعَهُمْ فِي آذَانِهِم مِّنَ الصَّوَاعِقِ حَذَرَ الْمَوْتِ ۚ وَاللَّهُ مُحِيطٌ بِالْكَافِرِينَ


Or [it is] like a pouring forth [of thoughts] from the higher consciousness, in it is state of darkness and threatening and perplexity. They set their directions in their desire to conceive from the in-sensibilities of fear of the death [deprived of sensation]. But the Allah [System of Consciousness] Himself encompassing with those who cover / hide / ignorant.

20 يَكَادُ الْبَرْقُ يَخْطَفُ أَبْصَارَهُمْ ۖ كُلَّمَا أَضَاءَ لَهُم مَّشَوْا فِيهِ وَإِذَا أَظْلَمَ عَلَيْهِمْ قَامُوا ۚ وَلَوْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ لَذَهَبَ بِسَمْعِهِمْ وَأَبْصَارِهِمْ ۚ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ


The astonishment almost snatches away their insight. Every time it lights by itself for them, they walk in it; but when it bring darkness [injustice] upon them, they stand still. And if Allah [system of consciousness] had willed, He could have taken away their understanding and their sight. Indeed, Allah has Power over all desire.

أَضَاءَ - form IV imperfect verb
أَظْلَمَ - form IV perfect verb


يُؤْمِنُونَ - يُقِيمُونَ - تُفْسِدُو - آمَنُوا - الْمُفْسِدُونَ - يُبْصِرُونَ - آمَنَ - These words and many more which occurred in the above verses are form iv verbs, this is one of the most frequent form of verb used in the entire book Quran - I have highlighted this FORM IV verb because of its importance. This form has the meaning of : - He made himself do or perform an action. A reflexive causative, i.e. he made himself do something to transform a place or a state. Whenever any action occurs or caused by the efforts of self and makes an impact on self or transforms the self, FORM IV verb is used.


The book Quran gives more emphasis on our own action, self responsibility, self accountability, self experiencing, self understanding, knowledge of self, carrying our own burden and dealing with the consequences of our own action. The book Quran give importance to SELF; whatever we do for others actually we do it for our own sake or for our own happiness or to satisfy our own Consciousness. We are the main beneficiaries of our actions whether we do it for others or for our own-selves - Wrong actions leads to bad consequence which our own soul has to bear. To express this feeling or idea of how self action effects mainly the self or cause the self to influence any person / place / state FORM IV verb is used. SELF action and its consequence on SELF is the main message of the book Quran. SELF is the primary brick of a healthy society, without SELF we cannot dream of the healthy society. Group of individuals can make a healthy or a sick society; societies cannot make good individuals; it is individuals who mold good societies. Muslim is a quality of one who is mentally sound and secure person; its not a name of any community.



 21 يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اعْبُدُوا رَبَّكُمُ الَّذِي خَلَقَكُمْ وَالَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِكُمْ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَتَّقُونَ

O agitated / restless minds, serve your Consciousness, One who has evolved you all and those from acceptance [the goal / aim you have willingly accepted] of you, that you become due diligent / thoughtful / careful -

22
 الَّذِي جَعَلَ لَكُمُ الْأَرْضَ فِرَاشًا وَالسَّمَاءَ بِنَاءً وَأَنزَلَ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ مَاءً فَأَخْرَجَ بِهِ مِنَ الثَّمَرَاتِ رِزْقًا لَّكُمْ ۖ فَلَا تَجْعَلُوا لِلَّهِ أَندَادًا وَأَنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ


The one has made for you the Lower consciousness desirable / expanding and the Higher consciousness a natural constitution and caused to sent down from the higher consciousness flowing thoughts and caused to brought forth with it from the increased intelligence a provision for you. So do not set for Him [Allah] deviations while you know. 


Here in the above verse the word jal جَعَل is very important link to understand the term al-ardh. In the context of the book Quran we cannot infer al-ardh الْأَرْضَ as the Earth because word Jal is used when no physical material is used like in making of day and night where no material is used only the rotation of Earth gives an effect of day and night. So al-ardh cannot be construed as the Earth, neither As-Samaa السَّمَاءَ is sky because guidance don't come from the sky but from Higher Consciousness. Rabb / Allah does not live in skies but in Higher level of consciousness of our own self [2:29] [2:284] [50:16] [2:186]

And if you are in doubt from what We have revealed upon Our server, then produce / bring with powerful influence from it's similarity and invoke your testimony from weaker system of consciousness [Allah], if you are truthful.

نَزَّلْنَا - form II perfect verb

عَبْدِنَاour servant / server signifies one who understand & serves the consciousness. Note all are not the server of their consciousness because they don't understand the needs of their inner self so serving it is out of question. Majority of us look outside and are prone to temptations and seek help from weaker systems rather than repairing our own self by self. Here server can also mean mind because it serves the Consciousness [Rabb]

دُونِ اللَّهِall other systems which are weaker than the system of consciousness [Allah] -  دُونِ  means weak according to lexicon.


24 فَإِن لَّمْ تَفْعَلُوا وَلَن تَفْعَلُوا فَاتَّقُوا النَّارَ الَّتِي وَقُودُهَا النَّاسُ وَالْحِجَارَةُ ۖ أُعِدَّتْ لِلْكَافِرِينَ

And sensible thoughts [Bashar] are those who trust / believe in transformation and stimulate to do righteous deeds, that for them is Jannat [Garden of the hidden knowledge covered with guidance] beneath which the enlightenment flow. Whenever they are provided with a sustenance from the process of increased intellect there from, they will say, "This is which we were nourished due to ability to accept." And it is given with it which is being similarly imagined. And for them in it are process of purified companions / mates [pure thoughts], and they will abide in it eternally.


بَشِّرِ - form II imperative verb - means sensible.

۞ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَسْتَحْيِي أَن يَضْرِبَ مَثَلًا مَّا بَعُوضَةً فَمَا فَوْقَهَا ۚ فَأَمَّا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا فَيَعْلَمُونَ أَنَّهُ الْحَقُّ مِن رَّبِّهِمْ ۖ وَأَمَّا الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا فَيَقُولُونَ مَاذَا أَرَادَ اللَّهُ بِهَـٰذَا مَثَلًا ۘ يُضِلُّ بِهِ كَثِيرًا وَيَهْدِي بِهِ كَثِيرًا ۚ وَمَا يُضِلُّ بِهِ إِلَّا الْفَاسِقِينَ


Indeed, Allah [system of consciousness] does not shy away to harp an example even of a trivial/small matter or something above it. Then as for those taste / feel safe/secure, they will know that it is the fact from their Consciousness. But as for those who cover / cover [remain ignorant], they say, "What did Allah [system of consciousness] intend by this as an example?" He lets go astray with this and guides many with it. And He does not misleads with it except the one who declines the fact [deviated from his Consciousness].

Those who break the covenant of Allah after contracting / determining it and sever that which Allah [system of Consciousness] has ordered to be joined and they themselves cause corruption in the lower consciousness. It is those who are the losers.

How can you hide / cover with Allah [system of consciousness] when you were lifeless [without sense] and you were brought to life; then you let yourself to die, then you emerge/ came to life, and then to Him you will repeatedly returning.

 29 هُوَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ لَكُم مَّا فِي الْأَرْضِ جَمِيعًا ثُمَّ اسْتَوَىٰ إِلَى السَّمَاءِ فَسَوَّاهُنَّ سَبْعَ سَمَاوَاتٍ ۚ وَهُوَ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ


It is He who evolved for you all of that which is in the lower consciousness all together. Then He elevated Himself towards the higher consciousness, and made them congregation / summing up of higher consciousness, and He has Well-Acquainted with all desires. 

     

 30 وَإِذْ قَالَ رَبُّكَ لِلْمَلَائِكَةِ إِنِّي جَاعِلٌ فِي الْأَرْضِ خَلِيفَةً ۖ قَالُوا أَتَجْعَلُ فِيهَا مَن يُفْسِدُ فِيهَا وَيَسْفِكُ الدِّمَاءَ وَنَحْنُ نُسَبِّحُ بِحَمْدِكَ وَنُقَدِّسُ لَكَ ۖ قَالَ إِنِّي أَعْلَمُ مَا لَا تَعْلَمُونَ


And if your Rabb said for the Malaikah [faculty of authority in mind]: "Indeed, I will instill in the lower consciousness an impulse of succession [Khalifah]." They said: "Will you instill in it from yourself corruption in it and cause to feed the embellishments / attraction, while we are occupied with your approvals and we make perfect for You." He (Rabb) said: "Indeed I know that which you do not know."

خَلِيفَةً - Khalifah is an accusative feminine noun but treated by the traditionalist as masculine. Khalifah means an impulse of succession. In simple words it can be understood as Man's wants are unlimited and the impulse to acquire things one after another is a continuous process of succession and man is never satisfied with such craving for things one after another. The desire to replace or possess things one after another in order to fulfill the feeling incompleteness or emptiness in life is termed as Khalifah by the Quran.

 وَعَلَّمَ آدَمَ الْأَسْمَاءَ كُلَّهَا ثُمَّ عَرَضَهُمْ عَلَى الْمَلَائِكَةِ فَقَالَ أَنبِئُونِي بِأَسْمَاءِ هَـٰؤُلَاءِ إِن كُنتُمْ صَادِقِينَ

And learning was imparted to Adam [homogeneous mixture] the ability to distinguish everything, then He showed them on the Malaikah and said: "Inform yourself about me with the [collective] higher intelligence of these, if you are truthful. 

عَلَّمَform II perfect verb - learning
أَنبِئُونِي form IV imperative verb

Adam was imparted the knowledge of the inherent script [Kitab] he needed to know and then the faculty of mind [Malaikah] was asked to present their perspective about the Rabb. They said that their knowledge is limited except what they have been taught by their Rabb.


32
 قَالُوا سُبْحَانَكَ لَا عِلْمَ لَنَا إِلَّا مَا عَلَّمْتَنَا ۖ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ الْعَلِيمُ الْحَكِيمُ


They said: "You are Possessor of Abundant Knowledge [Subhaan], we have no knowledge except what You have made us learn. Indeed, it is You are the All-Knowing, the Wise.

عَلَّمْتَنَا - form II perfect verb - You have made us learn


33 قَالَ يَا آدَمُ أَنبِئْهُم بِأَسْمَائِهِمْ ۖ فَلَمَّا أَنبَأَهُم بِأَسْمَائِهِمْ قَالَ أَلَمْ أَقُل لَّكُمْ إِنِّي أَعْلَمُ غَيْبَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَأَعْلَمُ مَا تُبْدُونَ وَمَا كُنتُمْ تَكْتُمُونَ



He said, "O Adam, inform them about your own self with their lofty characteristics." And when he had informed them about himself along with their lofty characteristics, He said, "Did I not tell you that I know the unseen [aspects] of the higher consciousness and the lower consciousness? And I know what you yourself make apparent and what you continue to suppress."


أَنبِئْهُمform IV imperative verb - inform them about your own self 
تُبْدُونَ form IV imperfect verb

Adam was told to identify in himself the different messengers [Rasuls] mention in his script [Kitab] and their distinguish function / applications which is embedded in himself.


34
 وَإِذْ قُلْنَا لِلْمَلَائِكَةِ اسْجُدُوا لِآدَمَ فَسَجَدُوا إِلَّا إِبْلِيسَ أَبَىٰ وَاسْتَكْبَرَ وَكَانَ مِنَ الْكَافِرِينَ


And when We said to the Malaikah [signifies a mechanism that possess power to command / exercise authority / dictate] "Be humble [asajudu] for Adam." So they became humble [fasjadu] except Iblees [unable to see the right course], he refused and became arrogant / proud, and he was from the Al-Kafireen [who covers the knowledge with ignorance]


اسْجُدُوا - second person masculine plural imperative verb - Sajda means humbleness - Humbleness or modesty is a virtue of those who are rich in knowledge. The essence of this word is to willingly obey or submit to the ultimate knowledge. The opposite of this sajda is اسْتَكْبَرَ [arrogance]Only those who are firmly rooted in knowledge and know their limitations are humble and will bow. The complete parable of Rabb, Malaikah and Iblees is happening inside Adam [Mankind].

اسْتَكْبَرَ - form X perfect verb - chose to remain arrogant


35 وَقُلْنَا يَا آدَمُ اسْكُنْ أَنتَ وَزَوْجُكَ الْجَنَّةَ وَكُلَا مِنْهَا رَغَدًا حَيْثُ شِئْتُمَا وَلَا تَقْرَبَا هَـٰذِهِ الشَّجَرَةَ فَتَكُونَا مِنَ الظَّالِمِينَ


And We said, "O Adam, calm down / remain still, you and your pair is Al-Jannah, [the garden of hidden knowledge underneath which river of enlightenment flow is  Al-Jannah, the real mate or companion of Adam] and both consume intelligence from it freely whenever you both desire. But do not come near such / differences / disputes, lest you be from the unjust [or in darkness]."

 كُلَا - second person dual imperative verb is a derivative of اكيل which also means intelligent, it does not means eat or to devour as perceived by the traditionalist. 

Man is inseparable from whatever knowledge he possess [Al-Jannah] - thus Al-Jannah is termed as companion - زَوْجُكَ 20:117 because man cannot be separated from the knowledge he possessed. ZAUJ here is a masculine nominative noun, so how it can be termed as wife by the traditional translators, however the following sentence is making it very clear that Al-Jannah or the latent knowledge is data storage device which is a 24x7 companion [ZAUJ / PAIR] of man. Al-Jannah is feminine noun - Man and the data storage device both have to share the knowledge covered with guidance. Al-Jannah is the get-way to the state of bliss but if we gets embroiled in arguments and disputes then he/she loses Al-Jannah.


36 فَأَزَلَّهُمَا الشَّيْطَانُ عَنْهَا فَأَخْرَجَهُمَا مِمَّا كَانَا فِيهِ ۖ وَقُلْنَا اهْبِطُوا بَعْضُكُمْ لِبَعْضٍ عَدُوٌّ ۖ وَلَكُمْ فِي الْأَرْضِ مُسْتَقَرٌّ وَمَتَاعٌ إِلَىٰ حِينٍ

Then both [the hidden garden of knowledge & Adam] let Satan [falsehood / vanity] to slip themselves concerning it [the garden of hidden knowledge covered with guidance] and he himself removed from what they were in it [cover of guidance]. And We said, "Degrade yourselves all of you, as rivals to one another, and you will have in the lower consciousness an ongoing desire for settlement and an advantage leading towards the time of reaping." 

فَأَزَلَّهُمَا - form IV perfect verb
فَأَخْرَجَهُمَا - form IV perfect verb

I am emphasizing more on the use of FORM IV verb, only because if it is correctly interpreted it will completely change the dimension of the Quranic message. Form IV indicates that we are responsible for our own action.

Satan + Malaikah are part of Al-Jannah [the process to tap the hidden knowledge which is covered with guidance] and Al-Jannah is the part of Adam [Mankind]. Only through latent knowledge which is covered with guidance [Al-Jannah], one can enter the state of bliss. If the cover of knowledge with guidance is removed then we are out from Jannah, the state of bliss. In Jannah flows the four rivers of enlightenment from which one can gather light of knowledge and guidance. Knowledge is paradise, without the light of knowledge is the state of stagnation which is in Quranic terminology is Jahannum [Hell]

37
 فَتَلَقَّىٰ آدَمُ مِن رَّبِّهِ كَلِمَاتٍ فَتَابَ عَلَيْهِ ۚ إِنَّهُ هُوَ التَّوَّابُ الرَّحِيمُ


Then Adam encountered from his Consciousness some propositions / words, then he turned / retrospect upon it. Indeed, it is He who is the Accepting of repentance, the extremely Merciful.

فَتَلَقَّىٰ form V perfect verb


38 قُلْنَا اهْبِطُوا مِنْهَا جَمِيعًا ۖ فَإِمَّا يَأْتِيَنَّكُم مِّنِّي هُدًى فَمَن تَبِعَ هُدَايَ فَلَا خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ


We said, "Degrade from it, all of you. And when guidance comes to you from Me, whoever follows My guidance - there will be no fear upon them, nor will they grieve.


The above verse prove that guidance itself is Jannah and separation from guidance is Jahannum


39 وَالَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا وَكَذَّبُوا بِآيَاتِنَا أُولَـٰئِكَ أَصْحَابُ النَّارِ ۖ هُمْ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ


And those who camouflage / hide / cover and denied with Our signs - those will be occupants of the Fire; they will abide in it perpetually."

And the people without guidance will be engulfing in the fire of repentance or ignorance which will remain in their mind perpetually. One of the meanings of mind or heart is خلد which has a same root as 
خَالِدُونَwhich does not die, remains forever.
