Is there a Deity with Allah

Chapter Naml”- (The Ant) – 27

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.

 (I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

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

أَمَّنْ خَلَقَ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضَ وَأَنزَلَ لَكُم مِّنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ مَآءً فَأَنۢبَتْنَا بِهِۦ حَدَآئِقَ ذَاتَ بَهْجَةٍ مَّا كَانَ لَكُمْ أَن تُنۢبِتُوا۟ شَجَرَهَآ أَءِلَٰهٌ مَّعَ ٱللَّهِ بَلْ هُمْ قَوْمٌ يَعْدِلُونَ 60

60.  IS NOT HE (BEST) WHO CREATED the heavens and the earth, and sendeth down for you water from the sky wherewith We cause to spring forth beautiful orchards, you had not the power to cause their trees to grow. Is there any God beside Allah? Nay, but they are folk who ascribe equals (unto Him)! 60.  ‘AMMAN  KHALAQAS-sa-maawaati  wal-‘arza  wa  ‘anzala  lakum-minas-samaaa-‘i  maaa-‘aa.  Fa-‘ambatNaa  bihii  hadaaa-‘iqa  zaata  bahjah.  Maa  kaana  lakum  ‘an-  tumbituu  shajarahaa.  ‘A-‘ilaahumma-‘Allaah.  Bal  hum  qawmuny-ya’-diluun.

Commentary

 

Hadaaa-‘iqa – (orchards, gardens), this word is plural of hadiiqatun, which has come out from hadqun. Hadqun means “to surround”. Hadiiqah means “surrounded compound”. It aims “a garden”.

 

Bahjatun – (beautiful, joyful), joy and amusement; which is acquired by looking anything, is called bahjat.

 

Tumbituu – (you should grow), it is a tense from the word ‘imbaatun.

 

Ya’-diluuna – {they swerve from the path, they ascribe equals (to Him)}, this word is from ‘adal, which means “to ascribe equal, to turn aside”.

 

After describing the Tokens of the Power of Allaah Almighty, it is being asked: Can any other do as it? Allaah Almighty created the heavens, the earth, rained water by means of clouds and produced gardens of various kinds of fruit. It is not in the power of anyone of you that you may cause to grow trees, then how can you produce fruit? Think concerning it that; should the God (Worshipped) be That Who is Creator of such all things or someone else? It is commanded: The answer is manifest, but what is the remedy of it that these people have swerved from the right path?

Lessons from Holy Qur'an

Muslims should learn from it

Quran Chapter 27: 57b to 59 (Pt-20, Stg-5) (L-2395) درس قرآن

Muslims should learn from it

Chapter Naml”- (The Ant) – 27

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.

 (I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

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

 

For frightening the Idolaters from the consequence of opposing the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), three stories have been described in this Chapter:

 

  1. In the Story of Prophet Solomon (peace be upon him), it has been informed that Allaah Almighty helps His Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon them) against their enemies. Having trust in the Power of Allaah Almighty, Solomon (peace be upon him) warned to Bilquiis (the Queen of Sheba) clearly: If you will not obey our advice, we verily shall come unto your Country with such hosts that you will not be able to resist. And we shall drive you out from your dwellings with shame and you will be abased. Those days were good for Bilquiis that keeping the nature of consequence in view, she accepted obedience. Contrary to it, the people of Makkah gripped up their loins to oppose the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) instead of taking warning from the story of Solomon (peace be upon him) and Bilquiis. At last, the Muslims were commanded: Chastise them due to their enmity against Islam. So they were punished, abased and destroyed in the Battle of Badr.

 

  1. In the Story of Prophet Salih (peace be upon him), wicked people planned to attack by night and said: “Kill Salih (peace be upon him) and afterward if the heir demands blood money, then say to him that you have neither killed and nor witnessed his destruction. Eventually he would have to be silent against our great gang”. But their planning failed. Allaah Almighty saved Salih (peace be upon him) and destroyed the enemies. Chieftains of Makkah also did the same and did not take warning from the story of Salih (peace be upon him). They plotted: “Kill Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) by night collectively. His family cannot take blood money from all of us. They will become helpless against our united power”. Eventually here too, the consequence was the same that the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) was saved from the attack of assailants and he flew from Makkah to Madinah. The assailants were abased and slain.

 

  1. In the Story of Prophet Lot (peace be upon him), people of his tribe prepared to drive him out from the township. But Allaah Almighty commanded to Lot (peace be upon him): Leave your township by night yourself! So he went out and the enemies were ruined.

 

The people of Makkah did not take warning from this story too. Ultimately, Muhammad, the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) was commanded to migrate, and afterward his enemies were also conquered.

 

The Idolaters of Makkah did not learn from these stories, but the Muslims should learn that there is nothing save destruction as the consequence of disobedience of Allaah Almighty and His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him).
