  • Shir ha Maalot:

Song of Ascents is a title given to fifteen of the Psalms, 120–134 (119–133 in
the Septuagint and the Vulgate), each starting with the superscription Shir
Hama’aloth (Hebrew: שִׁיר המַעֲלוֹת , meaning “Song of the Ascents”). They are
also variously called Gradual Psalms, Songs of Degrees, Songs of Steps or
Pilgrim Songs.
Four of them (Psalms 122, 124, 131, and 133) are linked in their ascriptions to
David, and one (127) to Solomon. Three of them (Psalms 131, 133, and 134)
have only three verses.[1] The longest is psalm 132 (18 verses).Song of Ascents is a title given to fifteen of the Psalms, 120–134 (119–133 in the Septuagint and the Vulgate), each starting with the superscription Shir Hama’aloth (Hebrew: שִׁיר המַעֲלוֹת , meaning “Song of the Ascents”).

Many scholars believe the title indicates that these psalms were sung by worshippers as they ascended the road to Jerusalem to attend the three pilgrim festivals [2] (Deuteronomy 16:16). Others think they were sung by the Levite singers as they ascended the fifteen
steps to minister at the Temple in Jerusalem.[3] One view says the Levites first sang the Songs at the dedication of Solomon’s temple during the night of the fifteenth of Tishri 959 BC.[4] Another study suggests that they were composed for a celebration after
Nehemiah’s rebuilding of Jerusalem’s walls in 445 BC.[5] Others consider that they may originally have been individual poems which were later collected together and given the title linking them to pilgrimage after thBe abylonian captivity.[2]
They were well suited for being sung by their poetic form and the sentiments they express. “They are characterized by brevity, by a key-word, by epanaphora [i.e., repetition], and by their epigrammatic style…. More than half of them are cheerful, and all of them
hopeful.”[6] As a collection, they contain a number of repeated formulaic phrases, as well as an emphasis on Zio[7n].

From 5 August 2010 till 13 October 2010:  70 days of the  33 Chileans Miners

Maulana explained that Allah had created this incident to destroy the foundations of disbelief. How the miners survived under such trying conditions, and how Maulana had connected to them from so far away, defied human logic and cannot be explained by any material philosophy.
