People dispute about Allah without knowledge
Chapter “LUQMAAN”- (LUQMAN) – 31
‘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)
أَلَمْ تَرَوْا۟ أَنَّ ٱللَّهَ سَخَّرَ لَكُم مَّا فِى ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَمَا فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ وَأَسْبَغَ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعَمَهُۥ ظَٰهِرَةً وَبَاطِنَةً وَمِنَ ٱلنَّاسِ مَن يُجَٰدِلُ فِى ٱللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ وَلَا هُدًى وَلَا كِتَٰبٍ مُّنِيرٍ 20
|20. See ye not how Allah hath made subservient to you whatsoever is in the heaven and whatsoever is in the earth and hath loaded you with His favours both without and within? And yet of mankind is he who disputeth concerning Allah, without knowledge or guidance or a Luminous Scripture.||20. ‘Alam taraw ‘annAllaaha sakh-khara lakum-maa fis-samaawaati wa maa fil-‘arzi wa ‘asbaga ‘alaykum Ni-‘amaHuu zaahiratanw-wa baatinah. Wa minannaasi many-yujaadilu Fillaahi bi-gayri ‘ilminw-wa laa hudanw-wa laa Kitaabim-Muniir.|
‘Asbaga – (loaded, bestowed amply, spread), it is past tense from the word ‘isbaag, origin of which is sabuug. Sabuug means “to spread, to be completed, fulfilled). ‘asbaga means “gave in full scale”.
Hudan – (guidance), it aims “to show the right path and guide”. Hudaa means “natural demand”.
While besides the Prophets (peace be upon them), the wise people also concluded that there is no one other in the world save Allaah Almighty that He should be adored, and He is Alone in Himself and His Attributes, then why these people ascribe plurality and associate others with Him. Is knowing Allaah Almighty too much difficult?
It is commanded: Do they not see that Allaah Almighty has made subject to them entire things in the heavens and entire things in the earth, which support the mankind in all matters? He has amply bestowed upon human beings His favors, both apparent and unapparent, from which they reap advantages, but do not think that of Whose kindness is result of this all? Apparent favors are those, by which requirements (like food and drinking, dwelling place and drawing in the breath etc.) of mankind are fulfilled. Unapparent favors are – sense, thinking, understanding and consequence-seeing etc. Allaah Almighty has arranged all of such things for the mankind. It is very wonderful and alas that these people understand everything but do not admit, whereas there is neither any rational or natural proof and nor any traditional deed, which they may produce in corroboration of their claim.
