The awe of the Creator

Chapter “The Prophets” – (Suratul‘Ambiyaaa’ – 21)

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

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

  يَعْلَمُ مَا بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمَا خَلْفَهُمْ وَلَا يَشْفَعُونَ إِلَّا لِمَنِ ٱرْتَضَىٰ وَهُممِّنْ خَشْيَتِهِۦ مُشْفِقُونَ 28

  وَمَن يَقُلْ مِنْهُمْ إِنِّىٓ إِلَٰهٌ مِّن دُونِهِۦ فَذَٰلِكَ نَجْزِيهِ جَهَنَّمَ كَذَٰلِكَنَجْزِى ٱلظَّٰلِمِينَ 29

 

28.  He knoweth what is before them and what is behind them, and they cannot intercede except for him whom He accepteth, and they quake for awe of Him.

 

29.  And one of them who should say: Lo! I am a god beside Him, that one We should repay with Hell. Thus We repay wrongdoers.

28.  Ya’-lamu  maa  bayna  ‘ay-diihim  wa  maa  khalfahum  wa  laa  yashfa-‘uuna,  ‘illaa  limanir-tazaa  wa  hum-min  khash-yatiHii  mush-fiquun.

 

29.  Wa  many-yaqul  minhum  ‘inniii  ‘ilaahum-min-  duuniHii  fazaalika  Najziihi  Jahannam.  Kazaalika  Najziz-zaalimiin.

(Section 2)

 

    Commentary

 

It is commanded: Chosen slaves of Allaah Almighty and His Angels (peace be upon them) have no inclination except it that they should remain engaged in His Remembrance and obey His Command. He knows their entire conditions, open or hidden; next or last. They do not recommend any person. However they continue finding that from whom Allaah Almighty is pleased, so in favor of him/her; they pray. They do not have authority to do or say something by themselves. They do or say only that for which they are commanded.

 

Then it is commanded: They are not out of Our Prescribed Law concerning reward and punishment. You give them so much great degree that (Let us flee to Allaah) they are managers and children of Allaah Almighty. But they are His slaves. Suppose, if some of them say that: Worship me also beside or along with Allaah Almighty! then they also will be thrown into the Fire of the Hell like wrongdoers. But they do never err as such. Satan erred like this so he was determined as the Hellish.
