Lesson # 678 From Holy Qur’aan
Allaah Almighty has decreed a term for you
Surah ‘Al-‘An-‘aam (Cattle) – Chapter – 6)–Stage – 2
Verse – 2 of 165, Section – 1 of 20 (Part – 7)
In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
|He it is Who hath created you from clay, and hath decreed a term for you. And a term is fixed with Him. Yet still ye doubt!||Huwallazii khalaqa-kum-min-tiinin- summa qazaaa ‘aja-laa. Wa ‘Ajalum-Musamman ‘indaHuu summa ‘antum tamtaruun.|
Tamtaruun – (you doubt), this word is from ‘amtaraa’, which has been derived from mir-yatun (doubt). ‘Amtaraa’ means ‘to doubt’.
It has been told in the previous verse that the Creator of the entire world is Allaah Almighty, and there is none able to create anything with one’s own power.
According to this verse, He, the same Allaah Almighty is, Who has created the humankind. If the human beings think about their own creation and condition, they can understand easily about the creation and form of the world.
It is commanded: Allaah Almighty has created you from clay, and has decreed a term and determined a time of your life and dwelling in this world. You should understand from it that a fixed period has been prescribed to preserve the world also. As your own age ends first or last, in the same manner, sometime or other, the age of the entire world will end too and the Doomsday will have to come.
The intention to cause to understand is that, the universe has been created in accord with a plan and confirmed map. Nobody has ability either to change or damage it. The human being should meditate upon himself to understand it that the one is created from the clay. A particular period has been fixed for keeping him in to existence in the present form. He will die after the specified time. As there is none partner of Allaah Almighty in the creation and death of the human being, like this, the entire world has been created by only That One Sole Commander (Allaah Almighty). Neither there is His any partner in its creation, nor its establishment and nor anyone can participate in its destruction. Islam desires to set this conception about Allaah Almighty in the heart of mankind. And the settlement of all the Islamic commands and system depend on it.
The state of humankind’s creation has already been explained in the lessons of Surah ‘Al-Maaa’-‘idah, in the description of Messenger Jesus (peace be upon Him). It has been enhanced here that the human being will be finished as well as, the entire world will be destroyed sometime or other and the Day of Resurrection will have to come. There is no reason of either humankind’s doubt in it or ascribing any partner of Allaah Almighty in the system (establishment) of the world.
