Question concerning The Beneficent

Chapter Furqaan”- {The Criterion (of Right and Wrong)} – 25

‘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)


ٱلَّذِى خَلَقَ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضَ وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا فِى سِتَّةِ أَيَّامٍثُمَّ ٱسْتَوَىٰ عَلَى ٱلْعَرْشِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنُ فَسْـَٔلْ بِهِۦ خَبِيرًا 59  وَإِذَا قِيلَ لَهُمُ ٱسْجُدُوا۟ لِلرَّحْمَٰنِ قَالُوا۟ وَمَا ٱلرَّحْمَٰنُ أَنَسْجُدُ لِمَا تَأْمُرُنَا وَزَادَهُمْ نُفُورًا 60

59.  Who created the heavens and the earth and all that is between them in six Days, then He mounted the Throne. The Beneficent! Ask anyone informed concerning Him!


60.  And when it is said unto them: Adore the Beneficent! They say: And what is the Beneficent? Are we to adore whatever thou (Muhammad) biddest us? And it increaseth aversion in them.

59.  ‘Allazii  khalaqas-samaawaati  wal-‘arza  wa  maa  bayna-humaa  fii  sittati  ‘ayyaamin  summastawaa  ‘alal-‘Arshi  ‘Ar-Rahmaanu  fas-‘al  bihii  khabiiraa.


60.  Wa  ‘izaa  qiila  laHumus-juduu  lir-Rahmaani  qaaluu  wa  mar-Rahmaan?  ‘Anasjudu  li-maa  ta’-murunaa  wa  zaada-hum  nufuuraa.

(As-Sajdah – Bow down)

(Section 5)



It is commanded: O Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him)! You should bow down before Allaah Almighty, The Immortal, and trust in Him Who completed the creation of this spacious system of the heavens and the earth in a long duration gradually. You can say that it was done within Six Days, but the measurement of those Days cannot be calculated according to the times of this world. Foundation of the time of this world depends on the sun and the moon. But the heavens and the earth were created before them. The Day of those times will be determined equal to one thousand years and sometime fifty thousand years according to the present days.


After creating these entire things, Allaah Almighty mounted the Throne, which is called “Arsh”. This all is Manifestation of His kindness and He is the most Merciful. If you desire to know Allaah Almighty, you should ask from that who knows Him. These idolaters do not know The Beneficent. When they are instructed to bow down before The Beneficent, they say: What is The Beneficent? Should we adore Him concerning Whom you {O Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him)} bid us?


Aversion of these ignorant people increases more when the name of The Beneficent is spoken before them and they get one more evasion of denial that you have given up Allaah and now one other God has created. It is nothing but your own commandment.


(After reciting or hearing this verse, one should bow down before Allaah Almighty).
