السلام عليكم

Somebody once introduced me to this concept:

The word الشّمسُ (the sun) is feminine, and القمرُ (moon) is masculine.

The sun burns itself to give light and life to everything around, and the moon is Muneer, meaning it reflects the light; it radiates the brilliance of the sun.

So when we shine as men, the implication is that we are reflecting the glorious light of our women.

-Shaykh Abdullah Adhami
