No One will help You and No One can grant Sustenance except for Allah

Allah addresses the idolators who worship others besides Him, seeking help and sustenance from them. Allah rebukes them for what they believe, and He informs them that they will not attain that which they hope for. Allah says,

ุฃูŽู…ู‘ูŽู†ู’ ู‡ูŽู€ุฐูŽุง ุงู„ู‘ูŽุฐูู‰ ู‡ููˆูŽ ุฌูู†ุฏูŒ ู„ู‘ูŽูƒูู…ู’ ูŠูŽู†ุตูุฑููƒูู…ู’ ู…ู‘ูู† ุฏููˆู†ู ุงู„ุฑู‘ูŽุญู’ู…ูŽู€ู†ู

(Who is it besides the Most Gracious that can be an army to you to help) imeaning, there is no protector or helper for you besides Him. This is the reason that Allah says,

ุฅูู†ู ุงู„ู’ูƒูŽู€ููุฑููˆู†ูŽ ุฅูู„ุงู‘ูŽ ููู‰ ุบูุฑููˆุฑู

(The disbelievers are in nothing but delusion.) Then Allah says,

ุฃูŽู…ู‘ูŽู†ู’ ู‡ูŽู€ุฐูŽุง ุงู„ู‘ูŽุฐูู‰ ูŠูŽุฑู’ุฒูู‚ููƒูู…ู’ ุฅูู†ู’ ุฃูŽู…ู’ุณูŽูƒูŽ ุฑูุฒู’ู‚ูŽู‡ู

(Who is it that can provide for you if He should withhold His provision) meaning, who is it that can provide for you if Allah cuts off your sustenance There is no one who gives, withholds, creates, provides and helps other than Allah alone, Who has no partner. This proves that they know this, yet they still worship others besides Him. Thus, Allah says,

ุจูŽู„ ู„ู‘ูŽุฌู‘ููˆุงู’

(Nay, but they continue) meaning, they persist in their transgression, lying and misguidance.

ููู‰ ุนูุชููˆู‘ู ูˆูŽู†ููููˆุฑู

(to be in pride, and flee.) meaning, they continue in obstinance, arrogance and fleeing away from the truth. They do not listen to it nor do they follow it.

The Parable of the Disbeliever and the Believer

Then Allah says,

ุฃูŽููŽู…ูŽู† ูŠูŽู…ู’ุดูู‰ ู…ููƒูุจู‘ุงู‹ ุนูŽู„ูŽู‰ ูˆูŽุฌู’ู‡ูู‡ู ุฃูŽู‡ู’ุฏูŽู‰ ุฃูŽู…ู‘ูŽู† ูŠูŽู…ู’ุดูู‰ ุณูŽูˆููŠู‘ุงู‹ ุนูŽู„ูŽู‰ ุตูุฑูŽุทู ู…ู‘ูุณู’ุชูŽู‚ููŠู…ู

(Is he who walks prone on his face, more rightly guided, or he who walks upright on a straight path) This is a parable which Allah made of the believer and the disbeliever. So the condition of the disbeliever is like one who walks prone on his face. This is like a person walking bent over on his face (with his head down) instead of walking upright. This person does not know where he is going or how. Rather, he is lost, astray and confused. Is this person more guided,

ุฃูŽู…ู‘ูŽู† ูŠูŽู…ู’ุดูู‰ ุณูŽูˆููŠู‘ุงู‹

(or he who walks upright) meaning, he who stands erect.

ุนูŽู„ูŽู‰ ุตูุฑูŽุทู ู…ู‘ูุณู’ุชูŽู‚ููŠู…ู

(on a straight path) meaning, this person who walks upright is on a clear path, and he is straight within himself while his path is straight as well. This is their likeness in this world, and their likeness will be the same in the Hereafter. So the believer will be gathered (on the Day of Judgement) walking upright upon the straight path and the vast and spacious Paradise will be opened up for him. However, the disbeliever will be gathered walking down on his face to the Hellfire.

(Assemble those who did wrong, together with their companions and what they used to worship instead of Allah, and lead them on to the way of flaming Fire.) (37:22,23) “Companions” here means those like them. Imam Ahmad recorded from Anas bin Malik that it was said, “O Messenger of Allah! How will the people be gathered on their faces” So the Prophet replied,

ยซุฃูŽู„ูŽูŠู’ุณูŽ ุงู„ู‘ูŽุฐููŠ ุฃูŽู…ู’ุดูŽุงู‡ูู…ู’ ุนูŽู„ูŽู‰ ุฃูŽุฑู’ุฌูู„ูู‡ูู…ู’ ู‚ูŽุงุฏูุฑู‹ุง ุนูŽู„ูŽู‰ ุฃูŽู†ู’ ูŠูู…ู’ุดููŠูŽู‡ูู…ู’ ุนูŽู„ูŽู‰ ูˆูุฌููˆู‡ูู‡ูู…ยป

(Is not He who made them to walk on their legs able to make them walk on their faces”) This Hadith is also recorded in the Two Sahihs.

Allah’s Power to create and It being an Evidence of the Final Abode

Allah says,

ู‚ูู„ู’ ู‡ููˆูŽ ุงู„ู‘ูŽุฐูู‰ ุฃูŽู†ุดูŽุฃูŽูƒูู…ู’

(Say it is He Who has created you,) meaning, He initiated your creation after you were not even a thing worth mentioning (i.e., nothing). Then He says,

ูˆูŽุฌูŽุนูŽู„ูŽ ู„ูŽูƒูู…ู ุงู„ู’ุณู‘ูŽู…ู’ุนูŽ ูˆูŽุงู„ุงู‘ูŒุจู’ุตูŽู€ุฑูŽ ูˆูŽุงู„ุฃูŽูู’ุฆูุฏูŽุฉูŽ

(and endowed you with hearing and seeing, and hearts.) meaning, intellects and powers of reasoning.

ู‚ูŽู„ููŠู„ุงู‹ ู…ู‘ูŽุง ุชูŽุดู’ูƒูุฑููˆู†ูŽ

(Little thanks you give.) meaning, how little you use these abilities that Allah has blessed you with to obey Him, to act according to His commandments, and avoid His prohibitions.

ู‚ูู„ู’ ู‡ููˆูŽ ุงู„ู‘ูŽุฐูู‰ ุฐูŽุฑูŽุฃูŽูƒูู…ู’ ููู‰ ุงู„ุงู‘ูŒุฑู’ุถู

(Say: “It is He Who has created you on the earth…”) meaning, He has spread and distributed you all througout the various regions and areas of the earth with your differing languages, colors, shapes, appearances and forms.

ูˆูŽุฅูู„ูŽูŠู’ู‡ู ุชูุญู’ุดูŽุฑููˆู†ูŽ

(and to Him shall you be gathered.) meaning, you all will come together after this separation and division. He will gather you all just as He separated you and He will bring you back again just as He originated you. Then while informing of the disbelievers who reject the final return, and doubt concerning its real occurrence, Allah said;

ูˆูŽูŠูŽู‚ููˆู„ููˆู†ูŽ ู…ูŽุชูŽู‰ ู‡ูŽู€ุฐูŽุง ุงู„ู’ูˆูŽุนู’ุฏู ุฅูู† ูƒูู†ุชูู…ู’ ุตูŽู€ุฏูู‚ููŠู†ูŽ

(They say: “When will this promise come to pass if you are telling the truth”) meaning, `when will this gathering after separation that you are informing us of, occur’

ู‚ูู„ู’ ุฅูู†ู‘ูŽู…ูŽุง ุงู„ู’ุนูู„ู’ู…ู ุนูู†ุฏูŽ ุงู„ู„ู‘ูŽู‡ู

(Say: “The knowledge is with Allah only…”) meaning, `no one knows the time of the Day of Judgement exactly except Allah, but He has commanded me to inform you that it is real and it will definitely occur, so beware of it.’

ูˆูŽุฅูู†ู‘ูŽู…ูŽุข ุฃูŽู†ูŽุงู’ ู†ูŽุฐููŠุฑูŒ ู…ู‘ูุจููŠู†ูŒ

(and I am only a plain warner.) meaning, `I am only obligated to convey, and verily I have performed my duty (of conveying) towards you.’ Then Allah says,

ููŽู„ูŽู…ู‘ูŽุง ุฑูŽุฃูŽูˆู’ู‡ู ุฒูู„ู’ููŽุฉู‹ ุณููŠุฆูŽุชู’ ูˆูุฌููˆู‡ู ุงู„ู‘ูŽุฐููŠู†ูŽ ูƒูŽููŽุฑููˆุงู’

(But when they will see it approaching, the faces of those who disbelieve will be sad and grievous.) means, when the Day of Judgement begins, and the disbelievers witness it, and they see that the matter has drawn close, because everything that is to occur will occur, even if it takes a long time. So, when what they denied occurs, it will grieve them because they will know what is awaiting them there (in Hell) of the worst evil. This means that it will surround them and Allah will command what they were not able to reckon or fully comprehend to come to them.

(and there will become apparent to them from Allah what they had not been reckoning. And the evils of that which they earned will become apparent to them, and that which they used to mock at will encircle them.) (39:47,48) This is why it will be said to them in order to scold and repri- mand them,

ู‡ูŽู€ุฐูŽุง ุงู„ู‘ูŽุฐูู‰ ูƒูู†ุชูู… ุจูู‡ู ุชูŽุฏู‘ูŽุนููˆู†ูŽ

(This is what you were calling for!) meaning, that you were seeking to hasten.
