 (I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)


(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)


وَهُوَ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَ مِنَ ٱلْمَآءِ بَشَرًا فَجَعَلَهُۥنَسَبًا وَصِهْرًا وَكَانَ رَبُّكَ قَدِيرًا 54  وَيَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ مَا لَا يَنفَعُهُمْ وَلَا يَضُرُّهُمْ وَكَانَ ٱلْكَافِرُ عَلَىٰ رَبِّهِۦ ظَهِيرًا 55  وَمَآ أَرْسَلْنَٰكَ إِلَّا مُبَشِّرًا وَنَذِيرًا 56

54.  And He it is Who hath created man from water, and hath appointed for him kindred by blood and kindred by marriage. And thy Lord is ever Powerful.


55.  And they worship instead of Allah that which can neither benefit them nor hurt them. And the disbeliever is ever a partisan (of Satan) against his Lord.

55.  Wa  ya’-buduuna  min  duu-Nillaahi  maa  laa  yanfa-‘uhum  wa  laa  yazurruhum.  Wa  kaanal-kaafiru  ‘alaa  Rabbihii  zahiiraa.


56.  Wa  maaa  ‘arsalNaaka  ‘illaa  mubash-shiranw-wa  naziiraa.



In several verses before these, it was being described concerning those portents, by reflecting in which, Power of Allaah Almighty can be observed clearly. Many people saw those circumstances in the world and instead of admitting to them as Power of Allaah Almighty, they began to search their material causes and tried their best in this matter. They contented on means and gave up thinking about the question that Who appoints these causes and their results.


Out of these entire incidents, by which human beings should know Allaah Almighty, one incident has been mentioned in these verses that the creation of the mankind is from a drop of water. And then they have been living pleasantly after getting corroboration from one another by means of ancestral and nuptial relationships. They should think that Who created them and Who produced mutual concordance between them for their ease. It has no reply but to say that Allaah Almighty is our Creator Who is Omnipotent upon everything. Only He is Originator of mutual cooperation and conjoining the people together. In spite of it, some people adore such things instead of Allaah Almighty which can neither benefit them and nor hurt them. However, the messenger (peace be upon him) is appointed only as a Bearer of good tidings concerning good works and a Warner concerning consequences of wicked deeds.
