Surah Hijr (15) 22/08/2015


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful.Sura Hijr(15)

Iblees’ refusal to heed Allah’s command

Verse 33: (Iblis) said: “I am not one to prostrate myself to man, whom Thou didst create from sounding clay, from mud moulded into shape.”

The story of Adam (AS)’s creation is given in this sura. What we learn in verse 33 is the rebellion of Iblis which is based on sheer arrogance. He refused Allah (SWT)’s command and thought he was superior to Adam AS. Hence the first sin was arrogance against Allah (SWT)’s instruction, a characteristic that is incompatible with Jannah.  Allah save us from arrogance and refusal to heed His commands.  See also Sura 7 Verse 40.

Continues tomorrow. Insha Allah … Salaam / Peace
