(Section 5)    




It has been commanded in this verse that after the end of this world’s life, the mankind will be reproduced, so that every individual may get retribution of own deeds. In the world, freedom has been given to every person, so that after meditation he may do whatever he wishes and set up the thoughts as he desire. Here, if his thoughts and deeds dash each other, even that if there is a threat of confusion in the stability of the world, then the rebellious people are removed.


It is necessary for standing the world firm that safety and peace should be preserved, and no one may trouble any other, so that every individual may dwell within his limits easily. But he should not interrupt in the safety and peace of the world. Reprisal of own faiths will be given after death. There, those would have to face the punishment whose faiths are false. But good reward will be given as retribution to the true Believers.


While the life again after death is unavoidable for fulfilling this purpose, then you should understand now that We (Allah Almighty) will certainly do it and reproducing is not difficult for Us. Everything whether that is smallest or biggest is under control of Our Intention and it cannot go out of Our Power. When We intend to do something, then there is no delay in its accomplishment. After Our Intention, neither any hindrance can remain and nor any access or want may happen.

Lessons from Holy Qur'an

Be! And It Is


BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)

Be! And It Is


Verse –117 of 286, Section – 14


The Originator of the heavens and the earth! And when He decreeth a thing, He saith unto it only: Be! And it is.

Badii-‘us-samaawaati  wal-‘arz.  Wa  ‘izaa qazaaa ‘amran- fa- ‘innamaa yaquulu lahuu  “KUN”  fayakuun.




Badii-‘un – (The Originator without matter and without model/sample). This word has made from the word bada’. The word abdaa’a has also come out from it. That is meant to make anything without matter and without looking any sample/model. Badii’ means An Inventor, Artificer, Artist and Artisan Who is really and truly Originator and Inventor, Who does neither need any tool or instrument, nor any material or goods, nor He is Indigent of model and nor any Instructor/teacher. He may originate/invent every thing wishing either it has its body or sample earlier or not. He may create, originate or invent any thing, any time and any where. He is The Creator of the entire universe, earth and skies.


False faiths and beliefs of the Idolater and Infidel nations have been rejected in this verse. . They imagined that the matter was already in existence prior to becoming it in any shape. Only the God Almighty originated the universe after forming it in an order.


By telling His attribute Badii, Allah Almighty has commanded here that only His essence is ancient eternal and infinite. He has invented all the existence of whose there was no pattern already existing. He has given shape to the disruption of heaven, earth and everything in the universe. For Him it is very easy to create every thing from the very beginning without any pattern and matter.


“KUN” fayakuun –  (Be! And it is) to create and invent the universe Allah Almighty has no need of any reason, cause, means, ground and support, just His order and sign is enough. This same reality has been explained in this short sentence.


It is known from this verse that only Allah is The Ancient. There was a time when only He was Being and nothing else existed. Only He created every thing with His Intention. Neither He has felt need of any partner nor helper. Only He is Who gives new shapes/forms to all things. It is wrong faith of materialists that The God Almighty is indigent of any one or He has need of anyone else.
