In the fall of 2008, a three month long international study was conducted. The purpose of this investigation was to determine the viability of Reiki for Fibromyalgia as an appropriate treatment for Fibromyalgia symptoms. Two different methodologies for sessions were explored: the commonly used distant healing technique and the lesser known Reiki box method.

Thirty participants from six countries volunteered for the study. This group of individuals provided a good cross-section of Fibromyalgia suffers ranging from those recently diagnosed with the condition and those who had suffered for much longer periods of time. Symptom intensity ranged from minimal to debilitating with some individuals able to cope without medication and some on a wide variety of prescriptions and/or herbal supplements.

 

Before the study began, each participant was asked to answer a detailed survey about the type, frequency, intensity, and duration of their Fibromyalgia related symptoms as well as their current medication and herbal supplement usage. Expected issues included pain in the extremities; back and shoulder pain; mobility issues; muscle fatigue; joint swelling; headaches; fatigue, fibrofog; unrecuperative sleep; depression; weight gain; and irritable bowel. These survey results were updated on a weekly basis to determine normal symptom fluctuations and any potential changes associated with treatment. 

 

Treatment took place once each week. Group A received no treatment. Group B received one hour Reiki for Fibromyalgia sessions using the distant healing method. Group C received the same Reiki for Fibromyalgia session but via the Reiki box method over the course of a twenty four hour period. Participants were unaware of which group they were placed and therefore which treatment, if any, they were receiving.

  Overall Findings

Reiki for Fibromyalgia- Distant Healing Method

Test results of the Reiki for Fibromyalgia therapy showed overall 67% improvement of Fibromyalgia related symptoms; complete eliminations of Mobility Issues, Swelling Joints, Weight Gain, Depression, Fibrofog, and Unrecuperative Sleep as prominent symptoms; marked reduction in intensity for Pain, Fatigue, Fibrofog, and Depression; overall declines of medication usage from an average 3 to 1; and reductions in the number of flare ups from 5+ to 2-4 (80%) and 1 (20%).

 

Reiki for Fibromyalgia- Reiki Box Method

Test results of the Reiki box for Fibromyalgia therapy showed overall 33% improvement in symptoms; complete elimination of Weight Gain, Depression, and Fibrofog as prominent symptoms; marked reduction in intensity for Fatigue, Fibrofog, and Depression; overall declines of medication usage from an average 8 to 3; reductions in the number of flare ups from 5+ to 2-4 (71%) and 1 (14%); and increases in 1-2 (52%) and 3-5 (29%)symptom-free days.

Recommendations

The results from this three month long international study suggest that both Reiki for Fibromyalgia methodologies have potential as treatments of Fibromyalgia. In each case, marked improvements can be seen even in the first few sessions. Moreover, over time, symptom relief stays consistent with less chaotic reoccurrences as compared to the group receiving no treatment.

It would seem, however, that the distant healing method is more adept at relieving physical symptoms such as pain and fatigue while the Reiki box is finer tuned to relief of mental and emotional concerns. Given these strengths, it is highly suggested that both methods be made available as part of a whole health healing program perhaps in conjunction with transpersonal resources such as meditations, guided imagery exercises, belief work, shadow work, etc. Such a program should be kept extremely flexible to meet the needs of the individual with the intention of encouraging healthy lifestyle choices, self understanding, and self care.

Reiki is natural healing with energy. Reiki heals by bringing in balance and harmony to those who embrace it. Everything and anything in this world is made up of different energy that vibrates at different frequencies. Because energy can not be destroyed, it remains in its constant state until it is converted.

Free techniques for Reiki self attunement allow one to replace negative energy with positive energy in order heal the mind, body, and soul.

Listed below are the 4 free techniques on how to self attune yourself to Reiki to better understand how simple and effective this energy healing can be.

1. Preparation to self attune yourself to Reiki is important. Meditation starting one week prior to your self attunement session is best. Meditation helps clear and relax the mind and body. It allows us to open up on a more spiritual level. One should also stop smoking and drinking alcohol one day prior to self attunement since these can cause blockage in the body.

2. On the day of self attunement, it is helpful to sit in a meditative position. Try and imagine all negative energies releasing from your body through your crown chakra. Your crown chakra is located at the top of your head. When I do this, sometimes I imagine an angel coming down with a bucket to collect my negative thoughts and energies and rid them from me. (Picturing an action like the angel works best for me.)

3. Mentally repeat to yourself which Reiki level you wish to be attuned. If you wish to start with Reiki Level 1, then repeat this to yourself and meditate on it.

4. Feel the Reiki level that you request enter through your crown chakra and flowing through each and every part of your body. It helps to picture this Reiki level as a white light. Enjoy the meditative feeling you are in for roughly 30 – 45 minutes. Once your whole body clears, you can ground yourself.

There are a lot more different techniques to Reiki self attunement. The above provides a brief lesson for someone interested in self attuning them self to Reiki. A person who embraces these techniques to heal themselves, will think clearer, and find that they have more energy to perform in their daily lives.

If you are interested in becoming a Reiki Master through self attunement, but are wondering what the benefits of this energy healing are, you have come to the right place. There are many benefits of energy healing in Reiki. Although it is a simple process, self attuning to Reiki is extremely effective, and can benefit you and others for the rest of your life!

Listed below are the 5 major benefits of Reiki’s energy healing:

1. Reiki can create a deep relaxation and can aid the body in releasing stress and tension. When we are relaxed and stress-free, we are able to restore our natural ability to heal. By becoming a Reiki Master, not only could you help your own mind, body, and soul, but you will have the gift to help others.

2. Reiki can accelerate the bodies self healing ability. Reiki can help in the aid of many illnesses. Cancer patients are a large group of those who can benefit from this treatment. Reiki can aid in bringing the body back to balance after chemotherapy treatments are performed, which can enable the patient to have more energy and be less lethargic.

3. Reiki can help relieve headaches. I am a chronic migraine sufferer. Since I have started to self attune myself to Reiki, as well as the occasional visits to my Reiki Master, I have had less migraine headaches a year. Before practicing Reiki, I was up to 2 migraines per month. For those of you who suffer these terrible headaches, you know how relieved I must have been to have those migraines go from 2 per month to 1 every three months. For this alone, I continue practicing Reiki.

4. Reiki can support and raise the immune system. Releasing toxins from the body through Reiki helps boost the immune system. When we replace negative energy with positive energy, we are rebalancing our inner self helping the immune system to flow for efficiently.

5. Reiki can help aid in better sleep. I have always had problems sleeping, especially when I’m under stress. Before I go to sleep, I meditate and practice Reiki. Reiki relaxes the body and clears our heads so we can have a deep and peaceful sleep.

A Reiki energy healing can induce an extremely comfortable state of being that can bring alteration to our consciousness. It is a tool for use at any moment, any time, and anywhere for stress relief and quick energy. Although the above benefits of Reiki are just a taste of what one who engages in the power of becoming a Reiki Master through self attunement can prepare for, there is still much more fascinating facts of this spiritual art to learn.

Light, Love, and Intelligence are the essence of pure energy. Your thoughts control the energy flow within and around you. Different energy centers within and around your body are influenced by your thinking habits. In other words, the things you concentrate on the most, – money, spirituality, relationships, and so on – affect your energy centers. These energy centers are known as your chakras and you can balance these Chakras through Reiki self attunement.

Discussed are 3 free exercises to balance your chakras through Reiki and visualization.

1. The White Light:

In your mind’s eye, see a large beam of bright, crystal – white light coming into the top of your head. Make this light as bright as you can imagine. See and feel the light penetrating the inside of the top of your head, clearing away any darkness and negative thoughts from your crown chakra. Let the light travel through your body and imagine it clearing away all darkness throughout all the chakras. At the end of this meditation, you should be able to imagine all your chakras illuminated and perfectly balanced in size.

2. Breathing Colors:

As you take a deep breath, visualize yourself breathing in the color green. As you exhale completely, see yourself breathing out the color yellow. Next, breathe in the color blue as deeply as you can, and breathe out the color orange. Then, draw in the color purple with your breath, seeing the purple entering all of your cells and your blood stream. Finally, breathe out the color red completely. Repeat this meditation process three times.

3. Glass Globes:

Visualize eight beautiful glass globes stacked on top of one another. The globes are stacked from top to bottom: Royal-Purple, Red-Violet, Deep Blue, Sky Blue, Emerald Green, Sunshine Yellow, Vivid Orange, and Ruby Red. See the globes become larger, brighter, and increasingly illuminated with light. Make them all grow in size until they are equally large. See the globes as perfectly transparent and the colors as clear, without any spots on the glass.

These 3 exercises are great for beginners who are looking to balance their chakras. Reiki self attunement can help one learn better meditation, clear and balance chakras, and heal with energy any time of day.

Reiki symbols and their meanings are sacred, and enhance the flow of life energy. These symbols open doors to higher levels of awareness, spirituality, and manifestation.

Reiki symbols are derived from the mother of all languages – Sanskrit. The Vedas, which are the oldest writings known to man, say that Sanskrit is the language of the spirit world.

Prior to Reiki self attunement, the symbols are shown to the student and prior to being attuned, and an impression takes place that connects the image shown to the metaphysical energies the symbol represents. Next, the Reiki attunement actually empowers the symbols so that they fulfill their intended purpose. This process has been created by the Divine and those who have been attuned.

During a Reiki session, it is advised to meditate on these symbols and receive guidance on how to use them directly.

Some Reiki symbols are as follows:

1. Cho Ku Rei: This symbol represents power. When this symbol is used during a Reiki treatment, energy flow is increased. This symbol is to be used during a healing session, and promotes healing in the body.

2. Sei He Ki: This symbol is known for emotional healing, clearing, and balancing. Sei He Ki works with physical and mental disease, relationship problems, fear, depression, anger, to enhance ones memory, and to clear a room from negativity.

3. Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen: This symbol transmits Reiki energy and is beneficial to Reiki distance healing.

4. Dai Ko Myo: This is the master symbol. It signifies wisdom and intelligence and is the Light of Buddah. This symbol is used to heal and awaken the soul.

Although there are a lot more different kinds of Reiki Master symbols, these 4 are essential to the student prior to their Reiki self attunement. When used correctly, these symbols intensify Reiki treatments and allow the person to have a much more invigorating Reiki session, whether they are performing on themselves or on others.

If you are looking for a good spiritual meditation exercise for Reiki self attunement, you have come to the right place. Since Reiki has come to the west, we have been told that the only way to receive an attunement was from a Reiki Master. Recently, we have found that people are able to attune themselves easily, and just as effectively as being attuned by a master.

The following is a simple meditation exercise that you can try in the comfort of your own home to jump start your knowledge on Reiki self attunement and spiritual healing.

1. First, start with your feet spread out about a yard apart and your arms straight out to your side.

2. Turn your left palm up and right palm down. Begin deep breathing. The deep breathing helps to draw the purity from the air into your Solar Plexus.

3. Visualize and feel the energy entering your Solar Plexus and build up. Imagine and feel this energy distribute throughout our whole being. At the same time imagine the energy flowing into your left hand, through you, and out of your right hand. Do this for several minutes.

4. Next, inhale, hold the breath, and continue the same visualization. You should now start feeling the energy rush.

5. Continue this meditation exercise for as long as you wish and enjoy it.

For a more intense effect, this exercise can be done outdoors. By doing this outdoors, you may feel a stronger rush of energy since you will be also working with the forces of Mother Nature.

This is only a sample of many other meditation exercises that can be done for Reiki self attunement. By doing these exercises, you will be able to open your hearts more to the spiritual realm and purify your mind, body, and soul.

Level 1 is the first degree of Reiki for beginners . This level allows the beginner to take hold of the Reiki energy for life.

Reiki is based on the principle that there is a higher power we are all part of. Reiki teaches those to access this higher power through meditation techniques and then directs it in a form of energy healing.

The beginner level is the most important since the learner becomes initiated into the Reiki healing energy. The learner is then introduced to different aspects of Reiki through dialogue. When one learns Reiki through self attunement, the different aspects are usually written, thought or shown on video. This is mostly used as an instruction guide to the learner.

Learners are educated on self-treatments, treatments on others, treatments on animals, and how to heal chronic situations. Practical sessions are more beneficial than theoretical sessions since Reiki is a hands-on technique and focuses more on placing the hands on the body. However, theoretical sessions of Reiki are dynamic in that they can develop the learner into using Reiki to its fullest capacity.

Reiki has been proved to be extremely beneficial to many people all over the world. This spiritual healing technique never fails to heal people at all levels.

Over and above, Reiki self attunement at a beginner level is a good way to become familiar with Reiki and can set you on the path to improve relationships, or to aid in other personal aspects of life to make a difference to yourself and to others.

There are millions of people Today in the world that practise Reiki both on themselves and others. Those who have moved to level 3 on the Reiki scale are known as Reiki Masters and can teach the art to other people as well as practising the healing on people.

Many People I meet though ask me what is Reiki? What does it do? and where can I learn it? In this article I will seek to provide answers to these questions.

1)Reiki is an energy (pronounced “Ray Key”) that was discovered by a man called Master Mikao while on a meditation retreat in the mountains. At that time he managed to open up his crown Chakra and received a hugh amount of energy. What he discovered was a healing energy that he could use on himself and others that could be transmitted by touch. He was so exited by what he experienced that he was inspired to teach it to others. As well as healing, the Reiki energy could be transmitted from one person to another so that they could in turn become masters and heal other people. The lineage continues to Today.

2)Reiki is essentially a healing energy and success has been reported with using its energy to heal all manner of ailments. The person who receives the Reiki usually lies flat while the practitioner places their hands on their chakra points and transmits this loving energy into their body. People usually report feeling warm relaxed and tingly as well as reporting improvements with their problems.

3)People who want to learn Reiki usually go on a 2 Day course with a Reiki master who brings them through a variety of attunements so that they can transmit the energy as well as learning the hand positions and chakra points to enable them to do a treatment. The cost can vary from person to person but the minimum is usually around 300 euros where I live.

Coming together as a group to hold sacred space for manifesting and healing can be a great deal of fun – especially since its possible to do it while you are all in different places!

As the term energy work implies, we are working with energy, and according to Einstein, “energy is everything.” We can garner a great deal of perspective when seeing how “everything” is energetically connected by exploring avenues of quantum science. I recommend the movie “What the Bleep Do We Know?!” because it’s funny as well as enlightening. But I must warn you: don’t expect to walk away with fewer questions!

This is an emerging science, only beginning to uncover the truth energy workers, shamans, seers, healers and mystics have known for Ages: we are indeed, all One.

So what does this mean? How do we work with this knowing?

This is where it gets interesting. Unlike physical science, which looks outward for explanations, quantum science delves inward, into the metaphysical nature of the universe, and thus, of ourselves. It is discovering fascinating evidence of the power of the mind and its relative connections to the body and to “external” events and circumstances.

It is validating the creative power of observation, the intense effect of intent and the guiding force of will.

At the end of the day, there is no ultimate answer out there explaining just how it all fits together so well. There is however, the chance to experiment and have fun with it while enjoying the benefits of this wonderful gift: the gift of connection.

As mentioned earlier, the vibrational tools we use to work with energy and connect remotely are all already within us. Observation. Intent. Will.

Here is a ritual for connecting to a group for distance energy work, using these vibrational tools:

Set Intent

Know what it is you want by allowing yourself to focus on how it would feel to have it. The alchemical process from wanting to having is what sets intent.

You may choose to write your intention down in a first person, present tense format.

For example: I hold the intention to be in alignment with creative passion.

The key thing here is while you are writing this you feel what it feels like to have it.

Create Sacred Space

I do all my energy work, distance and in person, inside an etheric circle which I create using my intention.

Feel free to do the same and to come up with something that resonates with you.

For me, circles represent unity, connection and continuity. I feel held and supported in my circle.

Enter Sacred Space

Before entering my circle, I drink some water and go to the loo. I also wash my hands with crystal water.

Then, I cleanse my mind and my aura by saying the Reiki Principles which encourages me to leave behind all worry, fear and judgement/expectations and invite myself into the space of humility, gratitude and allowing.

I suggest writing or using a prayer or affirmation that resonates with you and your sacred space and aligning with it before entering your sacred space.

Connect to Higher Self

When inside your sacred space, consciously connect with your higher self. I place my hands in prayer position at my heart centre and breath consciously, quietening the mind and allowing myself to sense the energetic nature of my body and intending for my higher self to guide to guide me through this process.

Align with and Detach from Intent

Be with the energy of your intent and then offer it to the Highest Path and Purpose for the group. Suspend all expectations and allow yourself to absorb the feeling of having your intention received into the Whole. Allow the appreciation of this exchange to fill you up.

Allow, Allow, Allow

Now, give yourself space to gently be, allowing all thoughts and feelings safe passage as they drift by. Notice and let be.

Meditate, dance, chant, stretch, smile….. enjoy!

Anchoring and Grounding Energy

To anchor the energy into the physical realm, offer your heartfelt appreciation to the group and feel the appreciation shining forth at you.

Ground the energy by breathing consciously for a few moments, getting fully into your body.

I like to place my hands on the ground, seeing my circle shrinking inward towards my hands. I then offer it in thanks to Earth Mother.

I would love to hear about your experiences with distance energy work or answer any questions you may have. Feel free to comment below or drop me an email.

In Joy

The Sons of the Lord God in Bible versus Quran (16)

This is the 16th article of the series:” The Sons of the Lord God in Bible versus Quran”. 

The Bible affirms the Faith in the Son of God by saying who is overcoming the world? It is only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.  The Noble Quran says that it is an unforgivable sin when you say or believe that the Almighty Creator has a son or sons; this major sin will lead to the Eternal Fire in the Hereafter.

——————————————————————–

 

The Sons of the Lord God in the Bible (16)

 

The Bible (1 John 5:1-5) says that everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well. This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? It is only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.

——————————————–

 

1 John 5:1-5 in five different versions of the Bible:

 

New International Version

1Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well. 2This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. 3This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, 4for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 5Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.

 

American Standard Version

1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is begotten of God: and whosoever loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.

2 Hereby we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and do his commandments.

3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

4 For whatsoever is begotten of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that hath overcome the world, even our faith.

5 And who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

 

English Standard Version

1 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the Father loves whoever has been born of him. 2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments. 3For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome. 4For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world— our faith. 5Who is it that overcomes the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

 

King James Version

1Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.

2By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

3For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

4For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

5Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

===============================

 

The Sons of the Lord God in the Quran (16)

 

The Noble Quran makes the topic of the sons of God very clear and says that Allah, the Almighty Creator, has neither a son nor a partner.

In addition, The Quran makes the signs that Jesus was not god very understandable.

The Quran says that Allah will say unto Jesus at the Resurrection in rebuke of his followers: ‘O Jesus, son of Mary, did you say to mankind in the life of this world, “Take me and my mother as gods, besides Allah”?’

Jesus will say unto Allah: ‘Glory be to You!, exalted be You above all that does not befit You, such as having a partner and so on. It is not mine; it is unjustified for me, to say what I have no right to.

It is not befitting for the Majesty of Allah to take to Himself a son.

Allah is exalted, magnified; He is above what they associate with Him of son or partners.  Allah is far transcendent above all that they ascribe unto Him!

In Islam, this point is very important faith wise.

  1. Again, it is unforgivable sin to say or to believe that the One Almighty Creator [who is Allah or God or the Lord or Jehovah or whatever name(s) you are giving Him] has a son or Sons.

From the Islamic point of view, the conclusion of this fundamental topic that may establish or destroy the faith is that:

Any one who believe that the Almighty Creator has a son or Sons; he messes up his faith and is considered as a disbeliever and in the afterlife he will end up as an eternal inhabitant of the Eternal Hell.

Any one who believes that the Almighty Creator has no son or partner, he has a good faith and is considered as a believer; and in the afterlife, he will end up as an eternal inhabitant of the Eternal Paradise. 

Verses 5:116-119 make the topic of the son(s) of God plain, clear and understandable.

The meanings of verse 5:116

And, mention when God will say, to Jesus at the Resurrection in rebuke of his followers: ‘O Jesus, son of Mary, did you say to mankind in the life of this world, “Take me and my mother as gods, besides Allah”?’

He, Jesus, says, shuddering: ‘Glory be to You!, exalted be You above all that does not befit You, such as having a partner and/or a son. It is not mine who said that, it is unjustified for me, to say what I have no right to.

You know what I have conveyed to them of commands and prohibitions.

If I indeed had said it to them, You would have known it. You know what is, hidden by me, in my self, but I do not know what is within Your Self, that is, what You keep hidden of Your knowledge.

  1. You know what is in my self, though I do not know what is in Your Self; You are the Knower of things unseen. You are the Knower things hidden from the servants; and no one can have knowledge of it besides You.

 

The meanings of verse 5:117

(Jesus continues) I only said to them in the life of this world only that which You commanded me, to say, and that is: “Worship Allah, declare Allah’s divine Oneness and obey Him; He is my Lord and yours.”

And I was a witness, a watcher, over them, preventing them from saying what they used to say by conveying your message whilst I dwelt among them; but when You took me, when You raised me up to the heaven, You were Yourself the Watcher over them, You were the Protector and Witness of them, the Observer of their deeds, and You Yourself are Witness over all things, Aware and knowing them, including what I said to them and what they said after me, and whatever else.

 

The meanings of verse 5:118

(Jesus continues) If you chastise them, that is, those among them who are fixed upon disbelief, verily they are Your slaves, and You are their Master, disposing of them as You will: there can be no objection to what You do; and if You forgive them, lo! they are Your slaves. You, only You, are the Mighty in His affair and the Wise in His actions.

 

The meanings of verse 5:119

  1. This is a day in which their truthfulness profited the Truthful, and their faith the believers and their conveyance the conveyors of messages and their loyalty the loyal people; for theirs are Gardens underneath which, beneath its trees and couches, rivers of water, milk, wine and honey which flow wherein they are secure and they shall abide forever; in such Paradise they dwell, never to die or be removed from it.

Allah is well-pleased with them, because of their faith, works and obedience to Him, and they are well-pleased with Him, because of His reward and the honor bestowed upon them.  That which I have mentioned of eternity and pleasure is the great triumph; the ultimate safety: they earned Paradise and were saved from the torment of hell.   The sincerity of those who were liars in this world shall not avail them on that Day, just as it shall not avail the disbelievers when they (will) believe upon seeing the chastisement.

Verses 5:116-119 of the Noble Quran in four different translations:

 

Verse 5:116

 

QARIB: and when Allah said: ‘( prophet) Jesus, son of Mary, did you ever say to the people: “take me and my mother for two gods, other than Allah?” ‘exaltations to you, ‘ he said, ‘how could i say that to which i have no right? if i had said that, you would have surely known. you know what is in my self, but i do not know what is in yours. indeed, you are the knowledgeable of the unseen.

SHAKIR: and when Allah will say: o isa son of marium! did you say to men, take me and my mother for two gods besides Allah he will say: glory be to thee, it did not befit me that i should say what i had no right to (say); if i had said it, thou wouldst indeed have known it; thou knowest what is in my mind, and i do not know what is in thy mind, surely thou art the great knower of the unseen things

PICKTHAL: and when Allah saith: o Jesus, son of Mary! didst thou say unto mankind: take me and my mother for two gods beside Allah? he saith: be glorified! it was not mine to utter that to which i had no right. if i used to say it, then thou knewest it. thou knowest what is in my mind, and i know not what is in thy mind. lo! thou, only thou, art the knower of things hidden?

YUSUFALI: and behold! Allah will say: “o Jesus the son of marry! didst thou say unto men, worship me and my mother as gods in derogation of Allah’?” he will say: “glory to thee! never could i say what i had no right (to say). had i said such a thing, thou wouldst indeed have known it. thou knowest what is in my heart, thou i know not what is in thine. for thou knowest in full all that is hidden.

 

Verse 5:117

 

QARIB: i spoke to them of nothing except that which you ordered me, that you worship Allah, my lord and our lord. i witnessed them whilst living in their midst and ever since you took me to you, you have been the watcher over them. you are the witness of everything.

SHAKIR: i did not say to them aught save what thou didst enjoin me with: that serve Allah, my lord and your lord, and i was a witness of them so long as i was among them, but when thou didst cause me to die, thou wert the watcher over them, and thou art witness of all things

PICKTHAL: i spake unto them only that which thou commandedst me, (saying): worship Allah, my lord and your lord. i was a witness of them while i dwelt among them, and when thou tookest me thou wast the watcher over them. thou art witness over all things.

YUSUFALI: “never said i to them aught except what thou didst command me to say, to wit, ‘worship Allah, my lord and your lord’; and i was a witness over them whilst i dwelt amongst them; when thou didst take me up thou wast the watcher over them, and thou art a witness to all things.

 

Verse 5:118

 

QARIB: if you punish them (for their disbelief), they surely are your subjects; and if you forgive them, surely you are the almighty, the wise. ‘

 shouldst forgive them, then surely thou art the mighty, the wise

PICKTHAL: if thou punish them, lo! they are thy slaves, and if thou forgive them (lo! they are thy slaves). lo! thou, only thou, art the mighty, the wise.

YUSUFALI: “if thou dost punish them, they are thy servant: if thou dost forgive them, thou art the exalted in power, the wise.”

 

Verse 5:119

 

QARIB: Allah will say: ‘this is the day the truthful shall benefit by their truthfulness. they shall live for ever in gardens underneath which rivers flow. Allah is pleased with them, and they are pleased with him. that is the great winning. ‘

SHAKIR: Allah will say: this is the day when their truth shall benefit the truthful ones; they shall have gardens beneath which rivers flow to abide in them for ever: Allah is well pleased with them and they are well pleased with Allah; this is the mighty achievement

PICKTHAL: Allah saith: this is a day in which their truthfulness profiteth the truthful, for theirs are gardens underneath which rivers flow, wherein they are secure for ever, Allah taking pleasure in them and they in him. that is the great triumph.

YUSUFALI: Allah will say: “this is a day on which the truthful will profit from their truth: theirs are gardens, with rivers flowing beneath,- their eternal home: Allah well-pleased with them, and they with Allah: that is the great salvation, (the fulfillment of all desires).
