The Call to contemplate the various Manifestations of Allah’s Power

Allah says,

ุฃูŽู„ูŽู…ู’ ู†ูู‡ู’ู„ููƒู ุงู„ุงู‘ูŒูˆู‘ูŽู„ููŠู†ูŽ

(Did We not destroy the ancients) meaning, those who rejected the Messengers and opposed what they came to them with.

ุซูู…ู‘ูŽ ู†ูุชู’ุจูุนูู‡ูู…ู ุงู„ุงู‘ูŒุฎูุฑููŠู†ูŽ

(So shall We make later generations to follow them.) meaning, from those who are similar to them. Thus, Allah says,

ูƒูŽุฐูŽู„ููƒูŽ ู†ูŽูู’ุนูŽู„ู ุจูุงู„ู’ู…ูุฌู’ุฑูู…ููŠู†ูŽ ูˆูŽูŠู’ู„ูŒ ูŠูŽูˆู’ู…ูŽุฆูุฐู ู„ู‘ูู„ู’ู…ููƒูŽุฐู‘ูุจููŠู†ูŽ

(Thus do We deal with the criminals. Woe that Day to the deniers!) Ibn Jarir said this. Then Allah reminding His creatures of His favor, and using the beginning of creation to support the idea of repeating it, He says:

ุฃูŽู„ูŽู…ู’ ู†ูŽุฎู’ู„ูู‚ูƒู‘ูู… ู…ู‘ูู† ู…ู‘ูŽุขุกู ู…ู‘ูŽู‡ููŠู†ู

(Did We not create you from a despised water) meaning, weak and despised in comparison to the power of the Creator. This is similar to what has been reported in the Hadith of Busr bin Jahhash (that Allah says),

ยซุงุจู’ู†ูŽ ุขุฏูŽู…ูŽ ุฃูŽู†ู’ู‰ ุชูุนู’ุฌูุฒูู†ููŠ ูˆูŽู‚ูŽุฏู’ ุฎูŽู„ูŽู‚ู’ุชููƒูŽ ู…ูู†ู’ ู…ูุซู’ู„ู ู‡ูŽุฐูู‡ูุŸยป

(“(O) Son of Adam ! How can you think that I am unable, and yet I created you from something like this (i.e., semen)”)

ููŽุฌูŽุนูŽู„ู’ู†ูŽู€ู‡ู ููู‰ ู‚ูŽุฑูŽุงุฑู ู…ู‘ูŽูƒููŠู†ู

(Then We placed it in a place of safety,) meaning, `We gathered him in the womb, where the fluid of the man and the woman settles. The womb has been prepared for this, as a protector of the fluid deposited in it. Allah said:

ุฅูู„ูŽู‰ ู‚ูŽุฏูŽุฑู ู…ู‘ูŽุนู’ู„ููˆู…ู

(For a known period) meaning, for a fixed period of time, which is from six months to nine months. Thus, Allah says,

ููŽู‚ูŽุฏูŽุฑู’ู†ูŽุง ููŽู†ูุนู’ู…ูŽ ุงู„ู’ู‚ูŽู€ุฏูุฑููˆู†ูŽ ูˆูŽูŠู’ู„ูŒ ูŠูŽูˆู’ู…ูŽุฆูุฐู ู„ู‘ูู„ู’ู…ููƒูŽุฐู‘ูุจููŠู†ูŽ

(So We did measure; and We are the best to measure. Woe that Day to the deniers!) Then Allah says,

ุฃูŽู„ูŽู…ู’ ู†ูŽุฌู’ุนูŽู„ู ุงู„ุงู‘ูŒุฑู’ุถูŽ ูƒูููŽุงุชุงู‹ – ุฃูŽุญู’ูŠูŽุขุกู‹ ูˆูŽุฃูŽู…ู’ูˆุชุงู‹

(Have We not made the earth Kifat for the living and the dead) Ibn `Abbas said, “Kifat means a place of shelter.” Mujahid said, “It holds the dead so that nothing is seen of it.” Ash-Sha`bi said, “Its interior is for your dead and its surface is for your living.” Mujahid and Qatadah also said this.

ูˆูŽุฌูŽุนูŽู„ู’ู†ูŽุง ูููŠู‡ูŽุง ุฑูŽูˆูŽุงุณูู‰ูŽ ุดูŽู€ู…ูุฎูŽู€ุชู

(And have placed therein fixed towers,) meaning, the mountains. The earth is held in place with them so that it does not shake and sway.

ูˆูŽุฃูŽุณู’ู‚ูŽูŠู’ู†ูŽู€ูƒูู… ู…ู‘ูŽุขุกู‹ ููุฑูŽุงุชุงู‹

(and have given you Furat water) meaning, cold and delicious water from the clouds or from what He causes to gush forth from the springs of the earth.

ูˆูŽูŠู’ู„ูŒ ูŠูŽูˆู’ู…ูŽุฆูุฐู ู„ู‘ูู„ู’ู…ููƒูŽุฐู‘ูุจููŠู†ูŽ

(Woe that Day to the deniers!) meaning, woe to whoever reflects upon these created things which demonstrate the greatness of their Creator, then after that continues to reject Him and disbelieve in Him.
