The Energy and the Matter
Surah Huud (Hud) – 11
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
|7. And He it is Who created the heavens and the earth in six Days –and His Throne was upon the Water- in order that He might try you, which of you is best in conduct. And if thou (O Muhammad) sayest: Lo! Ye will be raised again after death! Those who disbelieve will surely say: This is not but evident magic.||7. Wa Huwal-lazii khala-qas-samaawaati wal-‘arza fii Sittati ‘ayyaa-minw-wa kaana ‘Arshu-Huu ‘alal-Maaa-‘i li-yablu-wakum ‘ayyu-kum ‘ahsanu ‘amalaa. Wa la-‘in- qulta ‘inna-kum- mab-‘uusuuna mim- ba’-dil-mawti la-ya-quulan-nal-laziina kafaruuu ‘in haa-zaa ‘illaa sihrum-mubiin.|
It has been commanded in the verse that the Empyrean of Allah Almighty was on the Water, where His Throne did exist and from where He issues Orders. Maaa’ is a very long and broad river of atoms, which shakes or stays according to those Orders. The scientists have discovered now that origin of the world depends on only two things; force i.e. energy and matter. In accordance with Holy Qur’aan, the Energy is the Empyrean (‘Arsh) and the Matter is the Water (Maaa’).
Allah Almighty has fixed the circle of working of the both (the Energy and the Matter) separately. These both things are under His Divine Power. From them, ‘Arsh is “the subject and Maaa’ is unobtrusive. In other words, the first is “efficacious” and the second is “impressive”. ‘Arsh or Energy produces motion by the Command of Allah Almighty, whereas Maaa’ or the atoms of the Matter shake and be separate according to motion. Arrangement of the entire material world has been running on the same command and carrying out the command.
This verse of Holy Qur’aan described that these all are Wonders of God’s Omnipotence. The aim from it is; the trial of the mankind that “whether by observing it; he knows his Creator or otherwise, and according to His Will; he performs good works or not”? Allah Almighty commands to His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) that he should say to the people: The fundamental thing is “your deeds”. You will be given life again after death for computation of your good and bad acts, and reward and punishment for you will be according to them. Condition of these people is astonishing. They say to the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) after hearing this: This is not but evident magic.
