Wonders of God’s Divine Power

Surah Ra-‘d (The Thunder) – 13

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)


(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

وَهُوَٱلَّذِى مَدَّ ٱلْأَرْضَ وَجَعَلَ فِيهَا رَوَٰسِىَ وَأَنْهَٰرًا (3  a)

3a.  And He It is Who spread out the earth and placed therein firm hills and flowing streams. 3a.  Wa  Huwallazii  maddal-‘arza  wa  ja-‘ala  fiihaa  rawaa-siya  wa  ‘anhaaraa.   




Signs of knowing God Almighty have been spreading everywhere around the human beings. On which side you will look, you will see wonders of His Divine Power, on the condition that, human sense turns his attention to that side. If you see over head, you will observe, the heavens, the sun, the moon and uncountable stars have been disclosing without talking: Our Creator is the Omnipotent.


Notwithstanding this, you see below the sky, the world around you, there are many tokens spread in the earthy management also, which are sufficient for knowing Allah Almighty. You will see, at first, the land which has been spread all around. At various places, there are firms hills in it. Along with them, the streams have been flowing. Think for awhile about all of them that “Who did establish them?” It is not in the power of any other than Allah Almighty that he may create the land and mountains; and cause to flow the rivers. It is an open sign of being found these entire things that their Creator is Allah Almighty, otherwise, you should explain “Who created them?” Does any one exist save Him, who may claim that he has created them?


Go and check an account of every thing in the universe. Test its strength and examine the nature. Absolutely, you will reach this result that in the universe, the most excellent in the world are the things; having life. And among the things having life, human beings are seen ahead from all of them. Because it seems that they are the most intelligent. But any such individual, who is wise, did never claim till today that: I have created the earth.
