Lesson 

       

This verse is also common with the previous in meanings and comprehension. Allah Almighty described His power and discretion in the previous verse that He is able to do all things. He gives honor, glory and government to whom He wills, and lets fall in disgrace and baseness to whom He wishes. He has repeated in the present verse too the reality that each type of change and possession in the world depends upon His pleasure. He causes the night to pass into the day, and the day to pass into the night and changes the weathers i.e. winter, spring, summer and autumn. Sometime He decreases the night, increases the day and then increases night, and decreases the day. For example, the day becomes of fourteen hours and the night of ten hours (in summer), and after some period the day becomes of ten hours and the night of fourteen hours (in winter). These all changes are in His Hand. The moon, the sun and stars cannot move a little without His consent and plan. 

 

Besides increasing and decreasing the days and nights, He brings forth the living from the dead, and the dead from the living. First example is likewise to bear the bird from an egg and living child from the seminal fluid of male and female, and second example is likewise egg from the animal and the seminal liquid from men and women. He produces a learned person from the illiterate and a complete person from the unsound.

 

The children of Israel used to understand that the nobleness and seniority, which they had, would remain forever. They should know that Allah Almighty is Able to give honor and sovereignty to whom He wishes and Can snatch these things from whom He wills. If He desires to grow any perfect person between the ignorant, He is Able to do so, as He bore the Last Messenger Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) between the ignorant of Arab. The treasures of provision are also held in His control. He bestows countless and immoderate (wealth) to whom He wishes. The humankind cannot count His distinguishing, favors and honors.

God Has Sovereign Authority Over The Universe

LESSON # 344 FROM HOLY  QUR’AN

God Has Sovereign Authority Over The Universe                                                                                                                                                 

Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter – 3)

Verse – 26 of  200, Section –3    (Part – 3)

  

Say: O Allah! Owner of Sovereignty! Thou givest sovereignty unto whom Thou wilt, and Thou withdrawest sovereignty from whom Thou wilt. Thou exaltest whom Thou wilt, and Thou abasest whom Thou wilt. In Thy hand is the good. Lo! Thou art Able to do all things.        

Qulillaa-humma  Maalikal-Mulki  tu’-til-Mulka  man-tashaaa-‘u  wa  tanzi-‘ul-Mulka  miman-tashaaa’.  Wa  tu-‘izzu  man-  tashaaa-‘u  wa  tuzillu  man-tashaaa’.  Bi-yadi-kal-Khayer.  ‘Innaka  ‘alaa  kulli  shay-‘in-Qadiir.

Lesson 

       

Maalikal-Mulki – (Owner of Sovereignty), Allah Almighty has described about this virtue of His Ownership particularly for the purpose so that the human being should perceive about His Powers and Strength. The humankind should not forget the Real Owner
(Allah Almighty) in the intoxication of his temporary and transitory worldly power, influence and dignity. So that four days’ moving shadow may not make him careless from the commands of Supreme Commander (Allah Almighty).

 

This verse of Holy Qur’an has a specific Peculiarity. That is, “there is description about Perfect Power of Allah Almighty and utmost limit of inability and helplessness of the human being in the manner that nobody can deny”. It is the reason that our Muslim devotees use to tell their followers about this verse for repeating it as daily worship.  

 

If there is need to mention this verse in connection with the Christians’ body of delegates from Najraan (Syria), then we shall relate it as, “O Christian Scholars! You are proud upon the honor and sovereignty of the kings, understand it well that entire sovereign of all the world and Owner of the dignity is Allah Almighty. Every thing is in His Hand. He gives to whom He wills and withdraws from whom He wishes. Allah Almighty has shown practical demonstration of this reality to the entire world, while He made owner of the treasures of Roman and Persian sovereignty to an inferior and poor group (of newly Muslims). Then what is the material kingdom and honor?

 

Allah Almighty transferred last place of spiritual sovereignty and honor i.e. Prophet-hood from the children of Israel to the children of Ishmael. The words of this verse are taught to the Muslims in the form of supplication. And it explained that the persons who were poor, they will become owners of the sovereignty due to their faith, and who were kings, they will fell in disgrace due to their bad acts. The good (of all kinds) is In the Hand of Allah Almighty. He is Able to do all things.
