Encompassing Signs of Allah in knowledge

Chapter Naml”- (The Ant) – 27

‘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)

وَيَوْمَ نَحْشُرُ مِن كُلِّ أُمَّةٍ فَوْجًا مِّمَّن يُكَذِّبُ بِـَٔايَٰتِنَا فَهُمْ يُوزَعُونَ 83  حَتَّىٰٓ إِذَا جَآءُو قَالَ أَكَذَّبْتُم بِـَٔايَٰتِى وَلَمْ تُحِيطُوا۟ بِهَا عِلْمًا أَمَّاذَا كُنتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ 84

83.  And (remind them of) the Day when We shall gather out of every nation a host of those who denied Our Revelations, and they will be set in array.


84.  Till, when they come (before their Lord). He will say: Did ye deny My Revelations when ye could not compass them in knowledge, or what was it that ye did?

83.  Wa  Yawma  Nahshuru  min  kulli  ‘ummatin  fawjam-mim-many-yukazzibu  bi-‘AayaatiNaa  fahum  yuuza-‘uun.


84.  Hattaaa  ‘izaa  jaaa-‘uu  qaala  ‘akazzabtum  bi-‘AayaaTii  wa  lam  tuhiituu  bihaa  ‘ilman  ‘ammaa  zaa  kuntum  ta’-lamuun.



Yuuza-‘uuna – {will be (driven) in rows}, they will be divided in separate groups, it aims that every individual will be kept off in own boundary.


‘Ammaa – (or what), actually these are two separate words – ‘am and maa. ‘Am means “or”, and maa means “what”.


It is commanded: After destruction, on the Day of Resurrection, entire mankind will be brought forth to life again. And We shall make separate groups of every sect who used to falsify Our Revelations and Tokens. Then they will be grouped separately in rows class-wise. After that Allaah Almighty will ask from them: Why did you deny Our Revelations, Tokens and disobey Our Prophets (peace be upon them) without trying to understand? You did not bear pain of thinking into them that why this all arrangement has been established. What the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) has been saying that you should believe in it that Allaah Almighty is your God and Lord, while he endures toils and sufferings and give up enjoyments of the world for inviting you. He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) says: Listen to the Revelations of Holy Qur’an and meditate in the circumstances of the world. A Day will come when everything will be finished, as now the people die, like this entire living beings will be ruined. Then all mankind will be reproduced in the Hereafter and their deeds will be reckoned. Was your work only it that you should oppose and belie Our Commandments and Sayings of Our Messengers (peace be upon them) whichever they used to describe you? If not so, then you should explain that why did you not perform in accordance with Our Commandments? Why did you do wrong?
