With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
Most of the verses in the beginning of this sura allude to the blessings of Allah SWT and how He has made everything on earth subservient to man.
After discussing the function of the mountains (verse 15) and the stars (verse 16) Allah SWT reminds us in verse 18: If you would count up the favours of Allah, never would you be able to number them: for Allah is Oft- Forgiving, Most Merciful.
Human beings like to count things; we always want to quantity. But when it comes to the favours of Allah – this is INFINITY. We cannot enumerate Allah’s blessings.
Surely the Master Who has provided us with such bounties for our physical life would not have neglected our spiritual welfare.
