Creating prosperities of the world

Suratun-Nahl – (The Bee) – 16

‘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)

وَٱلَّذِينَ يَدْعُونَ مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ لَا يَخْلُقُونَ شَيْـًٔا وَهُمْ يُخْلَقُونَ 20

  أَمْوَٰتٌ غَيْرُ أَحْيَآءٍ وَمَا يَشْعُرُونَ أَيَّانَ يُبْعَثُونَ 21

20.  And those unto whom they call beside Allah created naught, but are themselves created.


21.  (They are) dead, not living. And they know not when they will be raised.

20.  Wallaziina  yad-‘uuna  min  duuNillaahi  laa  yakhlu-quuna  shay-‘anw-wa  hum  yukhla-quun.


21.  ‘Amwaatun  gayru  ‘ahyaaa’.  Wa  maa  yash-‘uruuna,  ‘ayyaana  yub-‘asuun.


(Section – 2) 




The entire prosperities of the world, whether those are small or big, have been created by Allah Almighty and subjected for the mankind. Describing about their condition separately is a great thing, whereas if someone desires to count them, cannot reckon. Behold! Whether; He is Good Who is The Creator and The Sustainer, Who has not been created by anyone, or those which are good for nothing and self-fabricated worshipped, which cannot create even any straw of grass, but have been created by Allah Almighty. It is obvious that these both cannot be equal. Then what should you conclude from these all?


The same inference has been disclosed in this verse clearly. It is commanded: Does your sense work properly? These, whomsoever you call by quitting Allah Almighty, can do nothing. But these themselves are created. Even their existence is not of their own. What life can they give others? Those are dead, which do not have any understanding that when the Last Day will come. And when they and their worshippers will be produced before Allah Almighty? Can these senseless, helpless and lifeless idols be able that the respect should be given to them considering that those are worshipped; opposite to Glorious and Omnipotent Allah Almighty, and bow humbly before them and consider that those can supply the wants of mankind? No. Never.
