Reflections on Sura Saba.
The contemplation on one short sura (Saba) emerged from notes made while reading the Qur'an. They have been compiled into an ebook (epub) format which can be downloaded and read in an ebook reader. It is also available in PDF format.

Although there are many shifts in timeframes and scenes in this sura, the common thread is that disconnecting oneself from the truth of the higher realities which simultaneously stand above and encompass our material world, leads to a gradual corruption of the innate purity of our fitra and our soul. The consequences of this descent into corruption will have far reaching implications for us as individuals and for the societies that accept this descent away from higher ethics as they move away from religion. The reflections in this contemplation on one short sura (Saba) emerged from numerous scattered notes made while reading the Qur'an (along with numerous commentaries and the works of various scholars whose profound analyses strongly affected my views) and my thoughts on its content. Any mistakes or errors are mine and if there is any benefit to be found in this brief reflective commentary it is only due to God's Grace.
