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

 

 وَمِنْ ءَايَٰتِهِۦٓ أَنْ خَلَقَكُم مِّن تُرَابٍ ثُمَّ إِذَآ أَنتُم بَشَرٌ تَنتَشِرُونَ 20  وَمِنْ ءَايَٰتِهِۦٓ أَنْ خَلَقَ لَكُم مِّنْ أَنفُسِكُمْ أَزْوَٰجًا لِّتَسْكُنُوٓا۟ إِلَيْهَا وَجَعَلَ بَيْنَكُم مَّوَدَّةً وَرَحْمَةً إِنَّ فِى ذَٰلِكَ لَءَايَٰتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ 21

20.  And of His Signs is this; He created you of dust, and behold you human beings, ranging widely!

 

21.  And of His Signs is this; He created for you helpmates from yourselves that ye might find rest in them, and He ordained between you love and mercy. Lo! Herein indeed are Portents for folk who reflect.

Commentary

 

Tantashiruuna – (, scattered, dispersed, ranged widely), this word is from ‘intishaar, origin of which is nashrun. Nashrun means “to spread, to disperse far and wide”. ‘Intishaar means “dispersion, scattering”.

 

It was commanded previously: Deliverance of mankind depends on it that he should know Allaah Almighty and worship Him. The person who will do so, his abode will be green Garden; otherwise will be thrown into the Hell.

 

In these verses, it is commanded: Knowing Allaah Almighty is not too much difficult. There are many things in the world which cannot be made by the mankind and there are many such matters which are not in the power of human being. Meditate in these matters and think: While the mankind did not do these works then who did? After it, necessarily he would have to admit Allaah Almighty. The same are His Portents, by observing of which he cannot disbelieve in Allaah Almighty. One from those Tokens is that at first He created a man from the dust. Then human beings dispersed in the entire world as creatures with open bodies, without having wool or garment on their bodies.

 

One more Sign is that Allaah Almighty created his mate (wife) also from his kind, so that he might not be confused by feeling himself single, but might live along with his wife comfortably. And Allaah Almighty placed natural love and mercy between both of them. It is easy to know Allaah Almighty for them who reflect in these Portents.
