The Creator




Not alike are the inmates of the fire and the dwellers of the guarden: the dwellers of the guarden are they that are the achievers.

Had We sent down this Quran on a mountain, you would certainly have seen it falling down, splitting asunder because of the fear of Allah, and We set forth these parables to men that they may reflect.

He is Allah besides Whom there is no god; the Knower of the unseen and the seen; He is the Beneficent, the Merciful.

He is Allah, besides Whom there is no god; the King, the Holy, the Giver of peace, the Granter of security, Guardian over all, the Mighty, the Supreme, the Possessor of every greatness, Glory be to Allah from what they set up (with Him).

He is Allah the Creator, the Maker, the Fashioner; His are the most excellent names; whatever is in the heaven and the earth declares His glory; and He is the Mighty, the Wise.

Ref:
[The meanings of chapter Al-Hashr, Verses:
20-24, Al-Quran.]


" 95. Verily it is Allah who causes the seed-grain and fruit-stone (like date-stone) to split and sprout. He brings forth the living from the dead, and it is He Who brings forth the dead from the living. Such is Allah, then how are you deluded away from the truth ?

96. He causes the dawn to break. He has appointed the night for resting, and the sun and the moon for reckoning. Such is the measuring of the All-Mighty, the All-Knowing.


97. It He Who has set the stars for you, So that you may guide your course with their help through the darkness of the land and the sea. We have (indeed) explained in detail Our Ayat (Proofs, evidence, verses, lessons, signs, Revelations etc.) for people who know.


98. It is He Who has created you from a single person (Adam), and has given you a place of residing (on the earth or in your mother's wombs) and a place of storage (in the earth or in graves)
Indeed, We have explained in detail Our revelations (this Quran) for people who understand.

99. It is He Who sends down water (rain) from the sky, and with it We bring forth vegetation of all kinds, and out of it We bring forth green stalks, from wich We bring forth clustered grain. And out of the date-palm and its spathe come forth clusters and dates hanging low and near, and gardens of grapes, olives and pomegranates, each similar (in kind) yet different (in variety and taste). Look at their fruits when they begin to bear, and the ripeness thereof. Verily ! in these things there are signs for those who believe.



100. And they make the jinn associates with Allah, while He created them (the jinn), and they attribute falsely without knowledge sons and daughers to Him. Be He Glorified and Exalted above all that (evil) they attribute to Him.



101. He is the Originator of the heavens and the earth. How can He have childrens when He has no wife?


He created all things and He is the All-Knower of everything.

102. Such is Allah your Lord! La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshiped but He), the Creator of all things.

So worship Him (Alone), and He is the Wakil (Trustee, Disposer of affairs, Guardian) over all things


103. No vision can grasp Him, but He grasps all vision, He is Al-Latif (the most Subtle and Courteous), Well-Aquainted with all things.

Verily, Proofs have come to you from your Lord, So whoever sees, will do so for (the good of) his ownself, and whoever blinds himself, will do so to his own harm, and I (Muhammad peace be upon him) am not a watcher over you.

105. Thus We explain variously the verses so that they (the disbelievers) may say : "You have studied" (the books of the people of the scripture and brought this Quran from that).


And that We may make the matter clear for the people who have knowledge.

106. Follow what has been revealed to you (O Muhammad peace be upon Him) from your Lord, La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshiped but He) and turn aside from the polythiests.

Reference:
The Holy Quran
Chaptor #06 Al-Anaam
Verses 95 To 106

Praise be to Allah, the Creator of the heavens and the earth! Who appoint the angels having two, three and four pairs of wings as His messengers. He adds to His creation as He pleases; for Allah has power over all things.[1] None can withhold the blessings which He bestows on people and none can award besides Him what He withholds. He is the Mighty, the Wise.[2]

O mankind! Call to mind the favors of Allah on you; is there any other creator than Allah who provides for you from the heavens and the earth? There is no god but Him. How then are you being deceived?[3]

O Prophet! If they deny you, so were the Messengers denied before you. All affairs shall ultimately be presented before Allah.[4]

O mankind! Certainly the promise of Allah is true, therefore let not the life of this world deceive you nor let the chief
deceiver (Satan) deceive you about Allah.[5] Surely Satan (Satan) is your enemy: so take him as an enemy. He is inviting his adherents towards his way so that they may
become companions of the blazing fire.[6] Those who disbelieve shall have a terrible punishment, and those who believe and do good deeds shall have forgiveness and a magnificent reward.[7]

Can that person be guided whose evil deeds are so fair seeming to him that he
considers them good? The fact is that Allah leaves to stray whom He wills and guides whom He pleases. Therefore, O Prophet, let not your soul expire in sorrow on their
account. Allah is aware of all their actions.[8]

It is Allah Who sends forth winds to raise up the clouds, then drives them to a dead land and therewith revive the earth after its death. Similar will be the resurrection of the dead.[9]

If anyone is seeking honor, let him know that all honor belongs to Allah Alone. Good
words ascend to Him and good deeds are exalted by Him. As for those who plan evil deeds, they shall have severe punishment and their plots will be brought to
nothing.[10]

It is Allah Who created you from dust, then from a sperm-drop, then He made you pairs. No female conceives or delivers without His knowledge. No longlived
man grows old or has his life cut short but is written in a Book; surely all this is
easy for Allah.[11]

The two bodies of water, of which one is sweet and pleasant to drink and the other is salty and bitter, are not alike. Yet from each kind of water you eat fresh meat and extract ornaments which you wear; and you see the ships plough their course
through them to seek the bounty of Allah, that you may be grateful.[12]

He causes the night to pass into the day and the day into the night, and He has made the sun and the moon to serve you; each one follows its course for an appointed term. Such
is Allah, your Lord; His is the kingdom; and those to whom you pray besides Him do not even own a thread of a date-stone.[13] If you pray to them they cannot hear your prayers and even if they could hear you they could not answer you. On the Day of Resurrection they will deny your associating them with Allah.

O mankind! None can
inform you about all this except the One Who is All-Aware.[14]

O mankind! It is you who stands in need of Allah, and it is Allah Who is Free of all wants, Worthy of all praise.[15] If He wants, He can destroy you and replace you with a new creation;[16] and this is not at all difficult for Allah.[17]

No bearer of a burden will bear another’s burden, and if a heavy laden person cries out for help, none will
come forward to share the least of his burden, even though he be a close relative. O Prophet! You can only admonish those who fear their Lord - though they cannot see Him - and establish Salah. He that purifies himself does so for his own good. To Allah
is the destination of all.[18]

The blind and the seeing are not alike;[19] nor the darkness and the Light;[20] nor the shade and the heat;[21] nor the living and the dead. Certainly Allah can make anyone hear if He so wills; but, O Prophet, you cannot make those who are in the graves hear you.[22] You are nothing but a Warner.[23] Certainly We have sent you
(O Muhammad) with the Truth as a bearer of good news and as a Warner, for there has not been a nation which has not had a Warner.[24] If they disbelieve you, know that their predecessors also disbelieved their Messengers who came to them with clear signs, scriptures and the light-giving Book.[25] But in the end I seized the
disbelievers, and behold, how terrible was My disapproval![26]

Do you not see that Allah sends down rain from the sky with which We bring forth fruits of various colors? Similarly, in the mountains there are streaks of various
shades including white, red, jet-black rocks.[27] Likewise men, beasts and cattle
have their different colors. In fact, only those among His servants who possess
knowledge fear Allah; surely Allah is All-Mighty, All-Forgiving.[28] Surely those who recite the Book of Allah, establish Salah, spend out of what We have given them, secretly and openly, may hope for imperishable gain.[29] That He may pay them back their full reward and give them even more out of His grace; surely He is
Forgiving and Appreciative of His devotees.[30] O Prophet, what We have revealed to you of the Book is the Truth, which confirms the previous scriptures. Surely, with respect to His servants, Allah is well Aware and fully Observant.[31]


Al-Quran
Chapter: FATIR (THE CREATOR)
Verses: 1-31


Oh dear God
My love to thee who is the merciful and kind indeed
Fair and mighty he judge us by deed
Not my color does he care
Or the texture of my hair
It is not the shoes I wear
Nor the language which I speak
For he judge me by my deed

He created one man so long ago
And taught him the knowledge from himself
Bow to Adam so he said
But the Jinn stood tall and proud
And before his lord refused to bow
The Jinn was ungrateful arrogantly so
And fell from grace
To be abhorred

But quietly not he left he promised to make mischief in the land
And behind our ears he whispers thought
But never take our hand in action
We make the choice to follow true
Or fall to lies and pay our due

The righteous shall do whats right
The wrong shall be punished with great might
They well ask for second chance
But will be granted nothing of the sort

The prophets came to them indeed
So why not follow them in heed
To love thy lord what makes you not
Is it that you just forgot

The blessing are abundant so
The food we eat the plants we grow
The children we have
The friends we love
His glory be in what we know

The little things both good and bad
Show you all you need to know
To give you chance
To repent your soul

Frolic upon beauty so bright
But only if thee do what right
Though the pressure great and strong
T'was what call them to stray away

Darkest nights
And brightest sun
All create by the one
The grass that grows
The trees that shade
Should cause man to stop and think

Not one could cause a plant to grow
Though the think they causest so
But if it be that you are
Then try to give the blind man sight

Or try to stop a human death
Or try to go right when he command you left
Control the time with your hand
Make food grow upon destitute land

Then ye know the truth indeed
Understand the will of God
None is better then our lord
He is better to be adored

Upon my rest
I'll think of thee
The one you save me from my self
The one who strengthens me with health
You rest me down to sleep
And bring me live from the dead

Please lord bless me one more night
To forbid what's wrong
And do what's right
So I be among heaven sent
And not among the burning dead

(Poem  Nuriddeenk)

"Good deeds are not equal to the evil ones. Repel other's evil deeds with your good deeds. You will see that he with whom you had enmity, will become your close friend.
But none will attain this quality except those who patiently endure and none will attain this quality except those who are truly fortunate."

Greetings in the name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful,

MashaAllah.....I love to read your comments my dear friends..and i would love to comment too...

The hebrew bible correspond to the protestant old testament and the book of job in those scriptures deals with wisdom through philosophy about how Job as the protagonist have to deal with the antagonist and in The Holy Quran, in Surah Fatir, the Holy Prophet (pbuh) in his holy mission had to endure the antagonistic attitude of the people around him. We can refer to "Tafsir Ibn Kathir" to understand the interpretation of the verses in order to gain insight as there are words in the Holy Quran which have ambiguous and implied meaning.

The miraculous Holy Quran, is the final revelation Allah sent down to mankind ,its full of philosophical wisdom, historical accounts and prophecies , law and commandments, including spiritual matters, .....Subhanallah…. the verses are truly amazing.

“And with truth We have sent it down ( the Qur'an), and with truth it has descended. And We have sent you (O Muhammad pbuh) as nothing but a bearer of glad tidings (of Paradise, for those who follow your Message of Islamic Monotheism), and a warner (of Hell-fire for those who refuse to follow your Message of Islamic Monotheism)”.( Translation of Surah Al-Isra’: 105)

Assalamu alaikum Nur Sakinah,

Sister, JazakAllah for replying to the comment of NothingProfound. Being a revert sister you can certainly give a better response to the comments regarding Bible, InshaaAllah.
