God’s kindness unto you is ever great

Quran Chapter 17  86 & 87 (Pt-15, Stg-4) (L-1839) درس قرآن

God’s kindness unto you is ever great

Surah Baniii ‘Israaa-‘iil (The Children of Israel) – 17

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast)

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

وَلَئِن شِئْنَا لَنَذْهَبَنَّ بِٱلَّذِىٓ أَوْحَيْنَآ إِلَيْكَ ثُمَّ لَاتَجِدُ لَكَ بِهِۦ عَلَيْنَا وَكِيلًا 86

  إِلَّا رَحْمَةً مِّن رَّبِّكَ إِنَّ فَضْلَهُۥ كَانَ عَلَيْكَ كَبِيرًا 87


86.  And if We willed  We could withdraw that which We have revealed unto thee, then wouldst thou find no guardian for thee against Us in respect thereof-


87.  (It is naught) save Mercy from thy Lord. Lo! His Kindness unto thee is ever great.

86.  Wa  la-‘in  shi’-Naa  laNaz-ha-banna  billaziii  ‘aw-hay-Naaa  ‘ilayka  summa  laa  tajidu  laka  bihii  ‘alayNaa  wakiilaa.


87.  ‘Illaa  Rahmatam-mir-Rabbik.  ‘Inna  FazlaHuu  kaana  ‘alayka  kabiiraa.




‘Allaziii  ‘aw-hay-Naaa  ‘ilayka (that which We have revealed unto thee), the aim from it is Holy Qur’an and the Commandments mentioned in it.


It was described in the previous verse that the Spirit is an Exhibition of Intention and Power of Allah Almighty. In this verse it has been narrated that the Power of Allah Almighty is endless and boundless. Every thing comes into existence by His Command and nothing can stop this process.


It is being commanded to the Messenger (grace, glory, blessing and peace be upon him) that if Allah Almighty willed He could withdraw within a moment that which He taught to His Messenger by means of Divine Revelation. Then the Messenger (grace, glory, blessing and peace be upon him) would not find any such person who might take responsibility of bringing this all back again.


Allah Almighty says: This entire is in Our Power but We shall not do so, because certainly many people will get guidance from the Holy Qur’an and they will succeed in the Religion and in the world by obeying its commandments, and you will be rewarded with good retribution of conveying it. And Allah Almighty will bestow you great and higher ranks. And it is great kindness of Allah Almighty upon you that He appointed you for the guidance of the entire human beings. And He did not disappoint you from the grade of “A Guide” due to outcries of some refractory people. And He did not deprive you of causing to know the Straight Path to the wise people.


Found from this verse is that as the Spirit is by the Command of Allah Almighty, like the same; its excellences are also by His Command and bestowed by Him. Nothing is own of anybody.
