Life and death is in the power of Allah

Chapter Furqaan”- {The Criterion (of Right and Wrong)} – 25

‘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)

وَٱتَّخَذُوا۟ مِن دُونِهِۦٓ ءَالِهَةً لَّا يَخْلُقُونَ شَيْـًٔا وَهُمْ يُخْلَقُونَ وَلَا يَمْلِكُونَ لِأَنفُسِهِمْ ضَرًّا وَلَا نَفْعًا وَلَا يَمْلِكُونَ مَوْتًا وَلَا حَيَوٰةً وَلَا نُشُورًا 3

3.  And they choose beside Him other gods who create naught but are themselves created, and possess not hurt nor profit for themselves, and possess not death nor life, nor power to raise the dead. 3.  Wattakhazuu  min-  duuniHiii  ‘aalihatal-laa  yakhluquuna  shay-‘anw-wa  hum  yukhlaquuna  wa  laa  yamlikuuna  li-‘anfusi-him  zar-ranw-wa  laa  naf-anw-wa  laa  yamlikuuna  mawtanw-wa  laa  Hayaatanw-wa  laa  Nu-shuuraa.



After describing obvious attributes of Allaah Almighty, it has been commanded in this verse: Condition of these people is strange. Among the entire creatures, it seems that signs of God’s omnipotence have been saying themselves that there can be no God save Allaah Almighty. But nothing strikes the people. The greatest token which Allaah Almighty disclosed before them; is that He revealed a Dignified Book like Holy Qur’an upon one of His slaves named Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him); which describes them concerning clear difference between right and wrong, and He commanded to him: Recite its verses before them so that they may know that Allaah Almighty is the Source of Kindness, The Greatest Ruler of the heavens and the earth, neither He has any son or daughter and nor any partner or companion in the Sovereignty. He is Who created all these things and bestowed them provisions and advantageous powers according to their requirement.


After providing so many tokens for knowing Him, still these people bow their heads before idols, stones and trees, and adore them; turning away from That Omnipotent and All-Powerful, Wise and Merciful Lord. They are unable to understand that their self-fabricated gods did not produce and show even a straw of grass till today. On the contrary; those are lifeless and made by human hands, otherwise those are nothing. While those cannot think about their own hurt or profit, then how can those harm or profit others? Neither those possess life nor death and nor have any power to raise the dead. Weep on the sense of such idolaters who make such decisions.
