(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast)
(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful)
وَسَخَّرَ لَكُمُ ٱلَّيْلَ وَٱلنَّهَارَوَٱلشَّمْسَ وَٱلْقَمَرَ وَٱلنُّجُومُ مُسَخَّرَٰتٌۢ بِأَمْرِهِۦٓ إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَ لَءَايَٰتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَعْقِلُونَ 12
وَمَا ذَرَأَ لَكُمْ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ مُخْتَلِفًا أَلْوَٰنُهُۥٓ إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَلَءَايَةً لِّقَوْمٍ يَذَّكَّرُونَ 13
|12. And He hath constrained the night and the day and the sun and the moon to be of service unto you, and the stars are made subservient by His command. Lo! herein indeed are Portents for people who have sense-
13. And whatsoever He hath created for you in the earth of diverse hues. Lo! therein is indeed a Portent for people who take heed.
|12. Wa sakh-khara lakumul-layla wan-nahaara, wash-shamsa wal-qamar. Wan-nujuumu musakh-kharaatum- bi-‘amriH. ‘Inna fii zaalika la-‘Aayaatil-li-qaw-minyya’-qiluun.
13. Wa maa zara-‘a lakum fil-‘arzi much-talifan ‘alwaanuh. ‘Inna fii zaalika la-‘Aayaatal-liqaw-miny-yazzakka-ruun.
Sakh-khara – (constrained), it is a past tense from the word taskhiir, (to constrain as a rule).
Zara-‘a – (created), it is also a past tense from the word zar-‘un, which means “to create” and in addition, it is used “for spreading” also.
Appearance of the day and the night, the sun and the moon and the stars regularly at their proper time; is by the Command and Plan of Allah Almighty. Wise people draw by observing these entire things and their arrangements that this claim of Holy Qur’aan is hundred per cent correct that these have been created by Allah Almighty.
Besides these all things, He has created various kinds of things which are of diverse hues, so that; you should know Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful, the Omnipotent and the Wise. Those who will reflect, certainly they will apprehend their Lord.
