Renewal of land’s life

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)

وَٱللَّهُ أَنزَلَ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ مَآءً فَأَحْيَا بِهِ ٱلْأَرْضَ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهَآ إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَ لَءَايَةً لِّقَوْمٍ يَسْمَعُونَ 65


65.  Allah sendeth down water from the sky and therewith reviveth the earth after her death. Lo! Herein is indeed a portent for a folk who hear. 65.  Wallaahu  ‘anzala  minas-samaaa-‘i  maaa-‘an  fa-‘ahyaa  bihil-‘arza  ba’-da  mawtihaa.  ‘Inna  fii  zaalika  la-‘Aayaatal-liqawminy-yasma-‘uun.

(Section 8)




Holy Qur’an is Guidance as well as a source of comfort and relief too, only for such people who believe in it. It aims that the Word of God Almighty purifies the life of the mankind from all kinds of quarreling and provides such peace and satisfaction to the heart, which can neither be acquired by wealth, rank and grandeur, and nor the so-called science can provide it.


This is the Mercy and Bounty, which cannot be taken from anywhere save Holy Qur’an. Likeness of it is as – the productive rain; by which barren land becomes fertile and dry crops begin to flourish. The same has been mentioned in this verse that if you desire to understand the influence of Holy Qur’an then you should reflect in the productive rain.


When Allah Almighty causes to rain from the sky, the dead land gets living. Greenness and fields begin to bloom. Abundant goods of eating and drinking are produced for human beings and other living creatures. If by looking all of them, you will meditate into them, you will find that by Holy Qur’an, dead souls are revived in the same way. Chaste passions begin to arise in the heart. Blows of good winds keep the life and the heart fresh every time. Waves of pleasure run into the body and the soul.
