Division of the Universe
Chapter “The Prophets” – (Suratul – ‘Ambiyaaa’ – 21)
‘A-‘uu-zu Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast.)
(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)
لَوْ كَانَ فِيهِمَآ ءَالِهَةٌ إِلَّا ٱللَّهُلَفَسَدَتَا فَسُبْحَٰنَ ٱللَّهِ رَبِّ ٱلْعَرْشِ عَمَّا يَصِفُونَ 22
لَا يُسْـَٔلُ عَمَّا يَفْعَلُ وَهُمْ يُسْـَٔلُونَ 23
|22. If there were therein gods beside Allah, then verily both (the heavens and the earth) had been disordered. So Glorified be Allah, the Lord of the Throne, from all that they ascribe (unto Him).
23. He will not be questioned as to that which He doeth, but they will be questioned.
|22. Law kaana fiihimaaa ‘aali-hatun ‘illAllaahu la-fasadataa. Fa-SubhaanAllaahi Rabbil-‘Arshi ‘ammaa yasifuun.
23. Laa yus-‘alu ‘ammaa yaf-‘alu wa hum yus-‘aluun.
According to mankind’s point of view, the entire universe has been divided in two parts. One is over the head i.e. the sky, and the other is below the feet i.e. the earth. The creatures, whichever are present among the both, none of them can disobey the Commandment of Allaah Almighty. Who can then be Worshipped save Him? A strongest Proof of the Unity and Oneness of Allaah Almighty has been described in this verse. It is commanded: Only He can be a Worshipped Who is not needy of any other in any matter, and nothing may disobey His Order. And there should be none superior to Him who may prevent Him from doing according to His Will. If there were two or more gods (with full such power and authority as of Allaah Almighty) in the heavens and the earth, then certainly their plans had dashed together. And either; the heavens and the earth could not be created; or after creation those could not last. Remaining the heavens and the earth firm equally as we see; is a Clear Proof of this matter that there is only One Who commands them. And there is none equal to Him who may break His Order.
After such clear proof, which gods have been chosen by the people, those are not at all able to be Worshipped. They have been entangled in a conjecture that One Alone Worshipped is not sufficient to manage the entire worlds.
The fact is that Allaah Almighty possesses the Throne of the Emperor of the entire worlds and He is The Owner of it. And He is Pure and Higher than all such deficiencies and losses which the people impose upon Him. There is none who may enquire from Him, but at the end all human beings will be questioned about their deeds.
