36- Glory be to the One, who created in pairs all things that the earth produces, as well as themselves, and other things they do not know.
(36- Ya-Seen, 36)
The Arabic word “azvaj” is the plural of “zavj” meaning “pairs,” “matches,” “partners.” There are three sorts of pairs in the creation as described in the verse:
a- Pairs that grow from the earth, i.e., plants that have species of differentiated sex;
b- Human pairs, males and females. Also some included human characteristics like bravery/cowardice; love/hate; generosity/stinginess, etc.
c- Pairs unknown: men did not know anything about the creation in pairs at the time of the descent of the Quran.
The Clouds! The only birds that never sleep. Victor Hugo
Let us begin in the name of the Greatest Creator. The Clouds reveal themselves in an endless variety of patters and designs. They just send quiet signals and Lo !
The two photographs were taken one fine day as the quiet call came. Amazingly one side of the sky showed two straight lines, while another part manifested Circles’.

Pairs from My knitting Projects
This Elf Slippers was a Challenge Order from an unknown Face Book member. She somehow felt that I could knit such a pair which she urgently needed. The reason ? I never asked, I was so excited at being chosen for the job. I had to search for the pattern and thanks to a largehearted designer who had offered it for ‘free’.The result is shared here, and guess what..there was a deadline to be met ! Allah is most gracious. The wool stock was exhausted a day before but there is always a way out if one thinks and prays for it. At the delivery time, the location was marked by Google maps and the welkins decided to pour all the purity from the heavens that evening. The Elf slippers, packed in a box were delivered to the clients, from car to car, in heavy rain.The order finished like a fairy tale.
This Stylish Baby Booties Pair has something special to show. Can anyone guess? Comments are welcome. Thank you.
My knitting will go on…on…on….Thank you so much respected Tina Ji. Another wonderful Challenge…
