SWIM TOWARDS KNOWLEDGE [SUBHAAN]



To learn how to swim [seek knowledge - TASBIH] is a natural instinct, dormant in all of us. Step in the sea of knowledge [الْبَحْرَ] and fling your mental faculties vigorously to stay afloat and you will be a good swimmer. One who makes an intense effort to seek knowledge is called الْمُسَبِّحِينَ [l-musabiḥīna] by the Quran. The word l-musabiḥīna also means good swimmer in colloquial Arabic. The message of the book Quran is similar. The criterion [Furqan] will come to you as your guide once you step in the battleground of knowledge [لْمِحْرَابَ]. The Arabic word l-miḥ'rābi is wrongly translated as prayer chamber; actually it is place of internal fights and not an open physical war. Its a space where diverse thoughts clash.

If you stay safe in shallow waters [knowledge] you will never learn swimming even in a hundred years. The Quran is revealed only to those who dare to swim in the sea of knowledge like how Moses did and made a path for fear / arrogance / pride [Pharoah] to get drown in it.

The word Subhaan سُبْحَانَ means one who is abundant in knowledge a derivative of الْمُسَبِّحِينَl-musabiḥīna
