LESSON # 165 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)
Signs Of The God’s Sovereignty
Verse –164 of 286, Section – 20 (Part 2)
Lo! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the difference of night and day, and the ships which run upon the sea with that which is of use to men, and the water which Allah sendeth down from the sky, thereby reviving the earth after its death, and dispersing all kinds of beasts therein, and (in) the ordinance of the winds, and the clouds obedient between heaven and earth: are signs (of Allah’s Sovereignty) for people who have sense.
‘Inna fii khalqis-samaa-waati wal-‘arzi wakhtilaafil-layli wan-nahaari wal-fulkillatii tajrii fil-bahri bimaa yanfa-‘un-naasa wa maaa ‘anzalallaahu minas-samaaa-‘i mim-maaa-‘in- fa-‘ahyaa bihil-‘arza ba’-da mawtihaa wa bassa fiihaa min kulli daaabbah. Wa tas-riifir-riyaahi was-sahaabil-musakh-khari baynas-samaaa-‘i wal-‘arzi la-‘Aayaatil-li-qawminy-ya’-qiluun.
In this verse Allah Almighty explained uncountable signs of His power and sovereignty so that the mankind would think about it and admit His Deity and Highness.
Creation of the earth and skies, circulation of the day and night, floating of ships and the boats in the rivers and seas, raining from the sky, the dead land seems to be alive by the rains, wandering of animals on the earth, subduing of the airs and the clouds between the earth and the sky, if the entire these are not the Signs of Powers and Sovereignty of the God Almighty then what is this? But the people can think about it only those have sense. The nonsense doesn’t take lesson from anything.
