The map of battlefield of Badder
Root: ق ص و
Words from this Root in the Grand Qur'aan:
a) Total occurrences: 5
b) No of constructions: 4
The basic perception infolded in the Root, in the words of Ibne Faris [died 1005] is:
يدلُّ على بُعدٍ و إِبعاد
That, it leads to the perception of far distance and deportation to far away, utmost limit. Lane's Lexicon signified the perception of proceeding to extremities, with reference to drinking water it conveys meaning of drinking in the manner of exhausting the last drop, again reflecting extremity in any action. He emphasized its meanings as reaching and attaining the utmost by referring to various words made from it.
The fact of reaching or attaining the utmost has the built in perception of elevation and altitude. As mentioned earlier also, the Grand Qur'aan, for itself is the best Lexicon. It exposes the perception and meanings of most of its words in a picturesque manner by relationships and contrasts. The basic perception and meanings of the Root are unfolded at the very first place of its occurrence:when/that day you people were on the lower level corner, and they/the approaching army of infidels of Mecca were on far farther higher altitude corner,
while the Merchant Caravan was relatively at lower level ground than you people. [Refer 8:42]
This is the verbal transcription of geographical map of the battlefield area in such lucid manner as if we are watching a picture of satellite map. This map of location of three different groups, Two Armies and One Merchant Caravan, is of the Decisive Day of Division of Humanity [ ], the Day when two forces met/confronted on the battlefield of Badr.
The most important factors and considerations in a war is the location occupied by the confronting armies and the psychological frame of mind of individual soldiers, their conviction about the cause and purpose of war, their perceptions and thoughts, fears and assessments about the strength of enemy. Had the Political leadership and generals of Russia earlier, and now the Allied Forces read the picturesque depiction of the Decisive War of the World, they might not have made their soldiers land in Afghanistan only to face humiliating and shameful defeat at the hands of a handful of what are called "Talibaan-Students", perhaps initially raised and trained by themselves.
