No protector or intercessor


‘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)


 ٱللَّهُ ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضَ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا فِى سِتَّةِ أَيَّامٍ ثُمَّ ٱسْتَوَىٰ عَلَى ٱلْعَرْشِ مَا لَكُم مِّن دُونِهِۦ مِن وَلِىٍّ وَلَا شَفِيعٍ أَفَلَا تَتَذَكَّرُونَ 4

4.  Allah it is Who created the heavens and the earth, and that which is between them, in six Days; then He mounted the Throne. Ye have not, beside Him a protecting friend or mediator. Will ye not then remember? 4.  ‘AllaaHul-lazii  khalaqas-samaawaati  wal-‘arza  wa  maa  baynahumaa  fii  sittati  ‘Ayyaamin  summas-taWaa  ‘alal-‘Arsh.  Maa  lakum-min  duuniHii  minwwaliy-yinw-wa  laa  shafii’.  ‘Afalaa  tatazakkaruun.



It was commanded previously: Without any doubt the Lord of the Worlds has revealed this Scripture so that O Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), you may warn the people from the punishment of their evil deeds, to whom no Warner came before you, that haply they may walk aright and abstain from bad works. It is not in the power of any individual that he may write the Scripture like this. It has been sent down by the Lord of the Worlds, all Commandments of which are quite true and real.


It is commanded; The Lord of the Worlds is That Allaah Almighty Who created the heavens, the earth and entire creatures between them within six days, then He established Himself above the Throne. Say to the people: His Order is executed on every step of the Universe. Neither you will be able to go anywhere and nor find anyone’s refuge after disobeying Him. You have no protecting friend, supporter or companion and nor anyone can be your intercessor without His permission. In such circumstances you should think that there is no abode of you save Him. You have been denying Him willfully. Neither you believe in His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), nor recite and try to understand His Scripture. It entirely is your ignorance.


This entire Universe is before you. Everything in it has been running according to His prescribed established order and law. Then why do you not believe in its Creator, Who has been keeping it up?
