|95. Lo! Allah (it is) Who splitteth the grain of corn and the date-stone (for sprouting). He bringeth forth the living from the dead, and is the Bringer-forth of the dead from the living. Such is Allah, how then are ye perverted?
96. He is the Cleaver of the Daybreak, and He hath appointed the night for rest, and the sun and the moon for reckoning. That is the measuring of the Mighty, the Wise.
97. And He it is Who hath set for you the stars that ye may guide your course by them amid the darkness of the land and the sea. We have detailed Our Revelations for a people who have knowledge.

It was described in the previous Section that the people, who do not accept the Noble Quran as the Book of Allah Almighty, they have not known God Almighty as it was necessary to be understood. They do not know: How Greatest is His Omnipotence? He has created the entire world and established a system for it.
It was compulsory in accordance with the system that Holy Quran was to be sent down for Guidance of the human beings towards the Straight Path and That should be brought by His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him). Then characteristics of the Holy Quran have been described. After that, the Remarkable Wonders of the Divine Power of Allah Almighty have been mentioned for making the people to understand, so that they may know His Omnipotence Who has established the system of the world, and get rid of this misunderstanding that there is nothing in this system for the guidance of human being.
It is commanded: Observe the Nature of God Almighty. If the grain of corn is sown in the earth, that is cracked and sapling of the grain comes out from that seed of the grain. The date-stone splits, high and heavy trees grow from it. The dead (egg) comes-forth from the living and the living comes out from the egg. This entire is done by Allah Almighty. Sometimes we see and hear that a child is born from the dead woman and on the contrary to it.
Likewise, God Almighty cleaves the darkness of the night, causes to appear from it the daybreak. The sun and the moon revolve with measure and the time is reckoned by them in the world. How do you err in understanding Allah Almighty, while you see all of these with your open eyes? These things explain every matter frankly that a Mighty, a Wise, a Powerful and Omnipotent has created them measuring correctly.
Allah Almighty commands: the stars, which you look at night, have been set by Him. Those are useful for you to evaluate about the correct way in the jungle and desert, where nothing exists except barren field, and in the sea, where nothing can be seen but only water. The observers of the stars become able to know the direction of their destination. Allah Almighty explains the means of His Revelation and the way; how to seek Him, for those, who desire to know Him. It is not too much difficult to know Allah Almighty, if the people meditate into them.
Now you should think: Who did create you? How were you born and where will you go? Listen! You entire were created by Allah Almighty and you all are children of one man i.e. Adam (peace be upon Him). You were born in such a manner that at first you were kept in the womb of mother like a trust. You expanded there gradually. After maturity, you came in the world. You stayed here for some specified period. Then you have to join your grave, where you will remain until God Almighty wants.
These entire places are ordinary. You will stop in the Paradise or Hell after coming out from the grave. Anyone place from those will be your permanent dwelling station. Allah Almighty has manifested and disclosed clearly these all tokens for those people who think and want to know.
