Mankind as a clear adversary

Chapter “YAA-SIIIN” – (YASIN) – 36

‘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)


إِنَّا نَعْلَمُ مَا يُسِرُّونَ وَمَا يُعْلِنُونَ 76b  أَوَلَمْ يَرَ ٱلْإِنسَٰنُ أَنَّا خَلَقْنَٰهُ مِن نُّطْفَةٍ فَإِذَا هُوَ خَصِيمٌ مُّبِينٌ 77

76b.  Lo! We know what they conceal and what proclaim.


77.  Hath not man seen that We have created him from a sperm? Yet lo! he is an open opponent.

76b.  ‘InNaa  Na’-lamu  maa  yusirruuna  wa  maa  yu’-linuun.


77.  ‘Awa  lam  yaral-‘insaanu  ‘Annaa  khalaqNaahu  min-nutfatin  fa-‘izaa  huwa  khasiimum-mubiin.



It is commanded that these people reap advantage from the blessings bestowed by Allaah Almighty, but worship others. They have chosen separate gods; leaving Allaah Almighty and consider that those will be of use at the time of any trouble. Describe them! Your these self-fabricated gods will become your opponents on the Day of Resurrection and you will come as their army and their supporters in the Hereafter. And instead of helping you in escaping from the Doom of Allaah Almighty, these will give evidence against you.

O Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him)! These people are ignorant. Their sayings also are self-made. You should not be grieved from them. We are Aware of their every matter. We know their all hidden and open circumstances. We shall punish them on the Day of Judgment due to their evil deeds.


After that it is commanded: The mankind does not think that what he was before coming in this world. He was nothing but mere a sperm-drop. We nourished that drop in the womb of its mother and it became a living mankind. We arranged to bring him up too after coming in this world. Then in the process of time, he forgot his actuality and became able to talk and quarrel. He did not understand that his birth and breeding was by the help of Our Bounty and Blessings.
