LESSON # 299 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)
Verse –255 of 286, Section –34 (Part – 3)
|Allah! There is no God save Him, the Alive, the Eternal. Neither slumber nor sleep overtaketh Him. Unto Him belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth. Who is he that intercedeth with Him save by His leave? He knoweth that which is in front of them and that which is behind them, while they encompass nothing of His knowledge save what He will. His Throne includeth the heavens and the earth, and He is never weary of preserving them. And He is the Sublime, the Tremendous.||‘Allaahu laaa ‘ilaaha ‘illaa Huu. ‘Al-Hayyul-Qay-yuum. Laa ta’-khuzuhuu sina-tunw-wa laa nawm. Lahuu maa fissamaawaati wa maa fil-‘arz. Man- zallazii yashfa-‘u ‘indahuuu ‘illaa bi-‘iznih. Ya’-lamu maa bayna ‘aydiihim wa maa khalfahum. Wa laa yu-hiituuna bi-shay-‘im-min ‘il-mihiii ‘illaa bimaa shaaa’. Wa-si-‘a Kursiyyu-hus-Samaawaa-ti wal-‘arz. Wa laa ya-‘uudu-huu hifzu-humaa. Wa Huwal-‘Aliyyul-‘Aziim.|
‘Al-Hayyu –(the Alive), it means that Allah Almighty is Alive with effect from Eternity and is Everlasting. Attribute of Life is His Personal Trait. Neither earlier He ever prevailed over death and nor ever will He overshadow it in future.
‘Al-Qay-yuum- (the Eternal), that is to say; an Existence Who is not only Established with His Personal Nature but He is also Cause of others’ perpetuity and establishment, and has supported everyone.
Kursiyyu – (His Throne), it shouldn’t be taken from the word Kursiyyu that Allah Almighty (I seek refuge in ALLAH) has any physical body and the Kursii is His sitting place. Here Kursiyyu means Throne, Knowledge, Sole Command, and also as Power. That is to say; Allah Almighty’s Knowledge and Sole Command is Overcoming upon the entire universe.
yashfa-‘u ‘indahuuu – (he, who may intercede with Him), intercession means act of pleading /recommendation for any person. That person who intercedes is also called Shaafe’. This reality has been repeated many times in the Holy Qur’an that none will be permitted to recommend any person without His permission in the Court of Allah Almighty. And if any person will intercede, that won’t be against the truth and righteousness. This one sentence has refuted wrong beliefs of ancient nations.
