Allah is Knowing and Acquainted
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)
إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ عِندَهُۥ عِلْمُ ٱلسَّاعَةِ وَيُنَزِّلُ ٱلْغَيْثَ وَيَعْلَمُ مَا فِى ٱلْأَرْحَامِ وَمَا تَدْرِى نَفْسٌ مَّاذَا تَكْسِبُ غَدًا وَمَا تَدْرِى نَفْسٌۢ بِأَىِّ أَرْضٍ تَمُوتُ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ عَلِيمٌ خَبِيرٌۢ 34
|34. Lo! Allah! With Him is knowledge of the Hour. He sendeth down the rain, and knoweth that which is in the wombs. And no soul knoweth what it will earn tomorrow, and no soul knoweth in what land it will die. Lo! Allah is Knower, Aware.||34. ‘InnAllaaha ‘indaHuu ‘ilmus-Saa-‘ah. Wa Yunazzilul-gays. Wa Ya’-lamu maa fil-‘arhaam. Wa maa tadrii nafsum-maa-zaa taksibu- gadaa. Wa maa tadrii nafsum- bi-‘ayyi ‘arzin tamuut. ‘InnAllaaha ‘Aliimun Khabiir.|
In this verse, the mankind has been warned very severely due to his ignorance. It has been described to him that in spite of being unaware of real matters, he becomes so much obstinate that he disregards all others.
It is commanded: Allaah Almighty Alone has knowledge of the Hour, and causing to rain is in His Knowledge and Power. Only He knows that what is in the womb of the mother; whether it is male or female. Nobody knows that what will he do tomorrow and where will he die. Allaah Almighty is Aware of all such matters. He gives knowledge to whom He desires. Then on which pride the human beings have big hopes and make great plans? They have forgotten and exulted due to their false knowledge. Everything will be finished if a great calamity befalls at the spot. Land will stop producing provision if the raining is stopped and the mankind will not be able to do something. He thought frequently that tomorrow he would do so and so, but such circumstances happened that he could do nothing. While you do not have power in all such matters, then why do you not obey the Commandments of Allaah Almighty, Who is Aware of everything and Able to do as He desires? He is Who commands the mankind for that which is suitable for him.
