The Healing Power of Imagery in the Qur’an

The Qur'an's use of imagery is important to grasp, not only grammatically, but in order to be adequately inspired by it. Like its use of nahr and anhār (نهر، أنهار، نهار) "river(s) and day": like time passing us by like the gushing of a river. In one sense, time eludes us, rushing past us (pun intended). In another sense is a river's gushing stream and its tranquilizing power, as how God describes The Garden (Jannah). For me, with the ever increasing insanity of the world I need a fantasy world to retreat to. But a fantasy still rooted in reality.
