Translation
Who made the earth a resting place for you and the heaven a canopy and (Who) sends down rain
from the cloud then brings forth with it subsistence for you of the fruits; therefore do not set up
rivals to Allah while you know.

The Almighty Allah is addressing all the human beings of this world regardless of our tribes,
regardless of our color, and regardless of the part of the world where we live. The Lord our
Sustainer addresses the mankind collectively. Because we are all the progeny of Adam and Eve.
We are addressed by Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala regardless of our tribes, regardless of our skin
color, regardless of the part of the earth where we dwell. Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala is
addressing us by saying (Oh! Mankind!). Then He says to us “Do worship your lord”

(who created you, who brought you to this life from the state of non-existence).
We were created from the place of nowhere that it is beyond the intellectual grip of human mind.
Only Allah our Creator knows it. He is the one who created you for free of charge. And only
that He created you – one of the blessings Allah showered on you that after He created you, He
did not create you alone. He also created other people so that you may have a complete social
life. Because after all we are social animals. This is your need to live in a society.

He created those people who came before you. Why? So that you

may attain the fear of Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala. He says He made for you- the

human beings not for Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala. He says . Jalla means “made” –
lakum “for you” Al-Araz - the earth. And when He made the earth, it was not made rough and
all rugged. The earth was created to harbor the human life, where the noble and glorious prophets
were meant to be sent having the torch of Tawhid in their hands. That’s why the earth though
here are pointed and sky touching mountains of high peaks is by the Qudrat of Allah is Firashal.
He made it Firashal. He made the earth in order to accommodate and facilitate the humans to
live and walk with paces so that the destinations may come in our access. Otherwise there would
have been no concepts of destinations. You can benefit from this earth without undergoing any

inconvenience. Allah says (Who created earth as a resting-place for


you).
Here we have seen that before the creation of Adam Allah made his living place – the
planet earth, third planet in the solar system in the Milkyway galaxy. So in the light of the holy
Quran it could be said with firm certainty that the planet earth is the home of Adam. After the
creation of the earth, the matter of life came under divine consideration. Because Adam was to
be created. And water was the sap of the life of Adam.
So for this He sent water to the earth from the heavens. He
descended the water on the earth. Where from? From the blue firmament - an abode of the
divine laws that let the human life foster and sustain with its program to proceed in accordance
with the Tawhid. Why Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala sent the water? Water provides the main
ingredient of life to all living things. If there had been no water, there would have been no
concept of life on the earth. That’s why He sent the water from the Heavens. By virtue of it the
food grows. It is pertinent to mention that He did not make the earth to bring the water. He made
the heaven to bring the water down. That’s why there is very clear mention in the holy Quran
that He descended water from the heavens. What are the benefits we can get from it? He says

different kinds of fruits were grown for the food. Don’t forget one
important point that this food was grown by virtue of rain showered from the heavens on the

earth. He says . Akhraja the word comes form Ikhraaj means to produce through
the water what Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala showered water from the heavens on the earth then He
gave the fruits. As it is sustenance. Then after explaining this phenomenon

Allay says in clear words don’t set up rivals to Allah. Then He reminds us
He made the sky roof (For us. He knows what we need in order to survive on the
earth). Supposing you live in a house without the roof, how will it be? Naturally it will not called
any dwelling place! That’s why the sky has been made roof of the earth. Allah Subhana-Wa-
Ta’aala is the greatest possible architect. That is the second thing. And then the third thing He
says that He showered water from the sky/blue firmament. Looking the
phenomena around us we can recognize Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala. We can not count His
countless blessings. Human intellect and human knowledge can not count or even perceive His
blessings and its efficacies that these have been allocated to the human use.
The earth is blessing. The sky is blessing. The water showered on the earth from the sky
directly is the blessing. The fruits grown from the heavenly water is the blessing. And the
protective layer of the earth ozone layer is the blessing. It sieves the ultraviolet rays of the sun. It
makes the life to grow and evolve on the earth. In short we do have countless blessings of Allah
Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala that our wisdom fails to count and understand them. We are indebted to
Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala. Allah –O- Akbar.
ALLAH SHOWERED HIS BLESSINGS FOR MANKIND ON THE EARTH 3
By Shaikh Jaleel
He does not eat food. He made and grew and created food only for us. So that we better worship
Him in true letter and spirit. Through the blessings He makes us recognize Him. Allah Subhana-
Wa-Ta’aala knew that all these things are important for the life and for the continuous process for
the life till hereafter, that’s why He kept all this system and control in His hand. He gave
supreme intellect and wisdom to the human mind but He did not let the human mind conceive and
perceive the food growing system, life giving system, death giving system etc. So that, human
may not shorten and tighten the life circle on others. This is also one of His great blessings.
Allah by His virtues is Rabb. He sustains and fosters and nourishes and brings forth all sorts of
lives of all living species not in the universe but in the time & space of the cosmos. Because He
is Rabb - that’s why He is the Rabb of this space having no concepts of limits. Limit is a human
mind’s notion.
One the first things is the water that human being needs. Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala

mentioned in one of the verses saying that that every living thing
We have made through water. So, Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala through His wisdom He made
water to foster life. So every being every living being that wants to live it has to come through
water. The creation came from the water and they live in water. The plants need water in order
to survive. Human beings need water. Animals, trees all these need water for the survival.
So, Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala made the creation out of water.
He says the first one Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala has mentioned He said

first five things that Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala has mentioned. He said


the first five things are that He knows the time of the Day of Judgment. Allah Subhana-Wa-
Ta’aala is the only one Who knows when the Day of Judgment will come. Even the messenger
of Allah does not know about the time of the Day of Judgment with exactitude. When a lot of
people came to him when they Day of Judgment is going to take

place? Then Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala said you have no idea when will it
happen. And then the messenger of Allah, yes we have some signs that the holy Quran has
mentioned or the Hadith has mentioned. No one knows about it but Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala.
The matters discussed above should not be tried to be judged by our error making brains.
Because the divinity can not come under the human caliber of intellectual scale.

And then the second thing Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala said that Allah
Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala means that only one who knows when the rain will fall. And he is Allah
Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala. Only Allah knows that how much quantity of rain will fall on the earth.
People try to understand through their available means of knowledge about the quantity of water
of the rain. Only Allah knows the quantity of the water and snow, which comes from the heaven

on our earth. And then the third thing; He says only Allah
knows what is in the woman’s womb. No one knows about the birth of the baby. But Allah
Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala knows perfect exactitude of the birth of the baby. This is also proved today
they can tell us that yes it is a boy or a girl or it is physically good/fine or it is having a problem.
Yes they can tell us. Even genetically engineered babies are also being born. This is the
technical and mechanical peak of the performance of the human minds. But is there any doctor
who could tell us what this child is going to be in the future? Is he going to be a good man or a
bad man? Is she going to be a scholar or he is going to be a doctor? Is he going to be a helpful
for the society or going to be a problem for the society? No one knows but only Allah Subhana-
Wa-Ta’aala knows about all these things.
ALLAH SHOWERED HIS BLESSINGS FOR MANKIND ON THE EARTH 4
By Shaikh Jaleel
All these details He said that He is the only one who knows the details of the future of a

baby. And then He says and not any human being knows what is
going to happen for him or her on the very next day. No one knows that today will we be alive or
dead. No one knows that what will happen tomorrow but Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala. The only
person who knows exactly what will happen on each and every one tomorrow that is Allah
Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala. In short human intellect is incapable of knowing what may happen to the
human being and its surroundings. Because the human intellect and its limit is limited. Whereas
the divine vision is unlimited and beyond the human perception to understand.
And the holy Quran says and no one knows which part of
the earth a man is going to die. No one knows. You can not tell that you are going to die here or
there. A lot of people born in Europe and they died in Africa. People who were born in Africa
they died in America. No one knows which part of the earth a man will die. Only one who
knows all this information with exactitude is Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala. The most accurate
knowledge and the most perfect one is of Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala. So Allah Subhana-Wa-
Ta’aala is telling us that He is the one who has the power of all these things. And these things
that Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala did not put in the hand of human being. Because Allah knows
that if He did some human beings would not allow other human beings to use that. So the first
important thing Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala did not leave the power of water into hands of human
being.
And true Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala has the power how to produce the food from the
earth. Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala gave the limited power in the hand of human being that if you
put the seed or the plant in the ground and cover it Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala will give you best
of the food from that plant. Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala will put His blessings on the plant. And
He does not need the service of any human being to come and bless you. And neither to give you
the plant. The only one who has the power is Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala. Because human being
needs in order to survive. The human being needs food and Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala did make
the food to give in the hand of any human being.
And then the third important thing that Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala will continue all this
process till the Day of Judgment. So in return of it if you wish/intend to thank Allah Subhana-

Wa-Ta’aala then act upon this advice that do not set up anything equal to

Allah. And you all know it. Because sometimes you may set up anything equal to
Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala if you don’t know. That Abraham al Khalil when he started, when he
was on his journey finally to his own lord, the real lord Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala. The first
thing when he saw the sun, he said this is my lord. And then after the sunset; he said
he said why not it becomes my lord? To that what the lord who goes and when

the lord who stays ever. And when he sees the sun and the stars how
for he said the same thing. When he saw the moon he said the same thing.
So, when you on the Jinn trying to find your lord that is different. Because you don’t

know. That’s why Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala said have to their reality have to
know than knowledge has come to you that this is your real lord. After you find your lord, He
says “do not set anything equal to Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala ‘ And then Allah Subhana-Wa-

Ta’aala continues to say , should you have any doubt , if you are in any doubt , if
you doubt if you are in doubt on what we have sent down what we have
ALLAH SHOWERED HIS BLESSINGS FOR MANKIND ON THE EARTH 5
By Shaikh Jaleel
revealed upon our savants - Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala is addressing to the prophet saying that
“Tell them the disbelievers that if they have any doubt about what we have descended” and see

Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala here He said should you have any doubt means
doubt of what we have descended or what we have revealed means upon
upon savants. Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala always when He calls He says ‘savants’. Allah
Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala could have said for example, He could have said that upon my
Muhammad that He said , that is the best one the best name a man could have
and that is the best name the prophet has this name. One of his names is , on of his names is
his name is and so on That He says the best names that the prophet when

he is called Abdullah the savant of Allah. He is proud to be the savant of Allah.


And Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala called the prophet whenever He calls themselves by
their names that in a best description is to call them savant. And that’s why Allah Subhana-Wa-
Ta’aala at the end of Suret-ul-Fajr when He was describing His good savants that He was proud

of them, and He was calling them to come into His paradise He said that enter
my savant . My savant Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala says mine which Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala
is proud of them. Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala did not say their, He said my savant. And then He

said and then enter my paradise. There is always mention in the holy Quran where
Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala has ascribed the paradise to Himself is in this verse and why?
Because He has the wonderful savant that He was describing. That’s how the prophets feel.
They are always proud to be one of the savants of Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala. So that’s why
Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala when He talks here He said; In the Quran or anywhere in
the Hadith you see Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala when He describes He always says . Even
before He mentions the prophet or Nabi. In the Salaat we come in Tashud we say

we bring the word Abd what is savant before the word of


prophet. So the word means the servant is most important that a man can have. And Allah
Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala whenever He wants to describes any of His prophets or any messenger
Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala mentions them as His servants that remember our

servant Dawud. That remember our servant Idrees and that’s how Allah
Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala describes those holy prophets. So He said if you are in any
doubt on what we have descended or revealed upon our servants. And Allah Subhana-Wa-
Ta’aala ascribed that Muhammad the prophet to himself means ‘our’ our servant. He
said then bring, present . OK if you are in doubt what we have revealed on our
servant prophet Muhammad we have revealed the Quran upon him. If you have any doubt on that

then you should present yours. He says present one chapter. Compare about

it. And then call all your supporters all your witnesses besides
Allah. Call. as the word is plural word of . We have in two
ALLAH SHOWERED HIS BLESSINGS FOR MANKIND ON THE EARTH 6
By Shaikh Jaleel

meanings. The first meaning of mostly we call it a man who has been killed in the faith of
Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala – the martyr call him . But the Quran did not use the word
a man who has been killed in the way of Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala. No. The holy Quran
whatever uses the word is always used in mean the witness or a supporter.
But in Hadith, when the Quran says means a martyr the man killed in the faith of

Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala or in the way of .So the word here does not mean

the martyr. He said and then call your supporters or your witnesses

besides Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala if you claim you are on the right path then
present your support. To present what you have a proof. This is a best way to prove the people
wrong. And that is the way of the holy Quran. That the Quran does not reject other people
regardless their belief, regardless how wrong they are, the Quran gives them a chance. And tells
them OK come unless discuss. This is our proof that the Quran is a miracle of Allah Subhana-
Wa-Ta’aala and then the messenger is the true prophet of Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala.
But if you say no that is not true. Then you have another reason or another proof to prove
the prophet wrong then bring your evidence. The Quran does not tell them No. You are on the
wrong path and I have nothing to do with you. No. The Quran asks them to come and let’s
discuss and that how you find in the entire Quran always call for discussion. Quran always tries
to listen to the others. Quran or Islam is not a religion that rejects anyone. No. Always Quran or
Islam is our religion that is inviting anyone and is open for discussion. As long as the discussion
will have. It will have the good results.
Islam accepts. In the Quran you see different verses that the Quran is trying to allow
others to come with their proofs as the Quran presents the proofs in its defense. So that’s why

Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala said if you are true in your claim. So here Allah
Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala is trying to challenge them and tell them that look at this Quran it is a
miracle from Allah Subhana-Wa-Ta’aala. And this is not from the prophet it was descended and
revealed upon the prophet. And the prophet is not the one who wrote this book. The prophet is
not the one who designed a complete code of life in which the human society may make progress.
It is the open challenge of the holy Quran till the last moment of this world, is there any power
mind, is there any super intellect, is there any gigantic wisdom, is there any supernatural
intelligent approach – who can give such kind of wonderful life giving guarantee for the smooth
progress of human society? No? Naturally no mind can do it. So if you can’t do it on your own
then collect and call all the super minds of your world besides the help of Allah. Do prove if you
can make such system and such verses. If you are true.
Inshallah further would be discussed in the next lesson.
