وَهُوَ ٱلَّذِىٓ أَنشَأَلَكُمُ ٱلسَّمْعَ وَٱلْأَبْصَٰرَ وَٱلْأَفْـِٔدَةَ قَلِيلًا مَّا تَشْكُرُونَ 78  وَهُوَ ٱلَّذِى ذَرَأَكُمْ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ وَإِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ 79  وَهُوَ ٱلَّذِى يُحْىِۦ وَيُمِيتُ وَلَهُ ٱخْتِلَٰفُ ٱلَّيْلِ وَٱلنَّهَارِ أَفَلَا تَعْقِلُونَ 80


78.  And He it is Who hath created for you ears and eyes and hearts. Small thanks give ye!


79.  And He it is Who hath sown you broadcast in the earth, and unto Him ye will be gathered.


80.  And He it is Who giveth life and causeth death, and in His hand is the alteration of night and day. Have ye then no sense?

78.  Wa  Huwallaziii  ‘ansha-‘a  lakumus-sam-‘a  wal-‘absaara  wal-‘af-‘idah.  Qaliilam-maa  tash-kuruun.


79.  Wa  Huwallaziii  zara-‘akum  fil-‘arzi  wa  ‘ilayhi  tuh-sharuun.


80.  Wa  Huwallaziii  Yuhyii  wa  Yumiitu  wa  lahukh-tilaaful-layli  wan-nahaar.  ‘Afalaa  ta’-qiluun.




Holy Qur’an desires to show the mankind that his relationships with the world and with the people of the world will become correct and he personally will gain his entire end at that time when he will come to know Allaah Almighty and His epithets correctly. Without it, he should not have any hope that he will pass actual successful life in the world and will deserve ease and comfort after death too. It is a strange thing that the mankind performs every work, but does not know Allaah Almighty. And he does not admit that after death he will be reproduced. It is being informed to him that he has eyes but does not use them properly, otherwise it is visible clearly that Who did give power of looking, hearing and understanding to the human being?


It is being commanded in this verse that Allaah Almighty is He Who gave you ears, eyes and hearts so that you may use them properly. But you do not use them correctly. You use their power at improper places. You should listen to the commandments of Allaah Almighty, behold the tokens of His omnipotence and believe in Him. It is the proper use of these three things. Allaah Almighty did spread you everywhere in the world, then you all will be gathered and produced before Him. He causes death and He gives life. One famous portent of His omnipotence is that He has divided the Time in two parts –Day and Night. To guess concerning the tokens of His Omnipotence, causing death and reproducing, bringing day after night and night after day are sufficient. You should understand from it that He can bring you again to life after death. There is no reason of any doubt in it.
