LESSON # 345 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
All-Powerful Is God Almighty
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter – 3)
Verse – 27 of 200, Section –3 (Part – 3)
|Thou causest the night to pass into the day, and Thou causest the day to pass into the night. And Thou bringest forth the living from the dead, and Thou bringest forth the dead from the living, and Thou givest sustenance to whom Thou choosest, without stint.||
Tuulijul-layla fin-nahaari wa tuulijun-nahaara fil-layl. Wa tukhrijul-hayya minal-mayyiti wa tukhrijul-mayyita minal-hayyi wa tarzuqu man- tashaaa-‘u bi-gayri hisaab.
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.
