فمن كان يرجوا لقاء ربه فليعمل عملا صالحا ولا يشرك بعبادة ربه أحدا

Tabut

The golden larnax in Vergina, Greece | ref

The larnax is a coffin or ash-chest used in ancient Macedonia. And this one, is of the few special cases. It was found in Vergina, inside the tomb believed to belong to King Philip II, the father of Alexander the Great.

Honestly... may I say this? This coffin reminds me of the Ark of Covenant. (◠oo◠)' I don't know. Still, I do know the Ark of Covenant is called "Tabut" (تابوت) in arabic [Q2:248 | Q20:39], which is "Tevat" (תיבה) in hebrew. Both "tabut, tevat" can also mean "coffin".

And the lid-cover with the wreath above it is like the "kapporeth" (כפורת). It is the seal of the Ark of Covenant — and the seal is mercy. In arabic, it is "kaffarah" (كفارة) which means "cover, atonement". So, is it like we keep the Commandments. Then when we die to become the earth in the coffin, may Allah SWT cover our sins with His forgiveness and seal us with His Mercy. ما شاء الله


The seal is mercy

الراحمون يرحمهم الرحمن
ارحموا من فى الارض يرحمكم من فى السماء

The merciful are shown mercy by The Most Merciful
Be merciful on the earth, and you will be shown mercy from Who is above the heavens

I seek refuge in Allah SWT from errors
Only Allah SWT Knows Best والله أعلم

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
وكتبنا له في الألواح من كل شيء موعظة وتفصيلا لكل شيء
فخذها بقوة وأمر قومك يأخذوا بأحسنها ...
And We wrote for him on the Tablets (something) of all things - instruction and explanation for all things, (saying), "Take them with determination and order your people to take the best of it ...
[Partial Al-Quran 7:145]

The Tablets of Stone was given by Allah (SWT) to Prophet Moses at the Sinai, and safe kept inside the Ark of Covenant — but it was lost after the exile. Still, there is a very special stone at the Kaabah — Hajar Aswad. Honestly, I don't know why Hajar Aswad is very special... Is it very special like the Tablets of Stone is very special? (◠v◠)'

Is it the same Stone? (m-m)

From its name and place, the Tablets of Stone was at the Foundation Stone inside the Jerusalem Temple, and Hajar Aswad is the Corner Stone of the Kaabah inside Masjidil Haram. "Foundation Stone, Corner Stone: means the starting place, isn't it. والله أعلم

In the 4th century BC, Alexander the Great conquered a vast empire from Europe to the edges of India [map] — paving the spread of Greek culture across the region — known as the Hellenistic Period. During this period, Greek culture spread so much that:
. the Jews adopted Greek culture and life style (Hellenized Jews)
. the Old Testament was translated from Hebrew to Greek (Septuagint)
. the New Testament was not written in Hebrew anymore, but in Greek

Besides the spread of Greek culture, Alexander the Great encouraged mixed marriages. So, imagine the mixing that happened. Imagine Alexandria and Gaza in that period — if there were Jews who adopted Greek culture, were other races as well? If so, did these Jews, Arabs mixed as hellenized people, then they believe in Prophet Jesus in the 1st century? And then they believe in Prophet Muhammad in the 7th century, so today they are known as Palestinian Muslims?

If so, these people are Palestinian Muslims who descended from the Jews, with Jewish ancestors around the Hellenistic Period. | DNA

An example of this mixed marriage is Prophet Muhammad's own great grandparents — Hashim ibn Abd Manaf from Bani Ishmael ♥ Salma bint Amr from Bani Najjar — which birthed the Bani Hashim. And Hashim had traveled to Gaza for trading during the Roman Period, he is believed to pass away and buried there. At that time, the language of Gaza was Greek.

The space probe Rosetta was named after the Rosetta Stone, which is a decree inscribed on stone 3 times - in hieroglyphs, demotic & Greek - during the Ptolemaic period of Egypt. [BritishMuseum | photo] The funniest thing is, when Rosetta released its Philae lander on a comet, it ended under a kapporeth after bouncing off the comet's surface. Still, it survived long enough to send data back to Earth. (◠v◠)' الحمد لله [photo]

Perhaps "mitzvah" (מצוה : commandment) is "misbah" (مصباح : enlightened)?
And "misbah" (مصباح : enlightened) is from "sabbah" (صبح : dawn, radiance).

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الله نور السماوات والأرض
مثل نوره كمشكاة فيها مصباح
المصباح في زجاجة الزجاجة كأنها كوكب دري يوقد من شجرة مباركة زيتونة
لا شرقية ولا غربية يكاد زيتها يضيء ولو لم تمسسه نار
نور على نور يهدي الله لنوره من يشاء
ويضرب الله الأمثال للناس والله بكل شيء عليم

Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The example of His light is like a niche within which is a lamp, the lamp is within glass, the glass as if it were a pearly (white) star lit from (the oil of) a blessed olive tree, neither of the east nor of the west, whose oil would almost glow even if untouched by fire. Light upon light. Allah guides to His light whom He wills. And Allah presents examples for the people, and Allah is Knowing of all things.
[Holy Quran 24:35]

نور على نور يهدي الله لنوره من يشاء
Light upon light, Allah guides to His light whom He wills ♤ ماشاء الله
