Surah Bani Isra’il (17) 25/09/2015


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Surah 17 (Bani-Isra’il)

Allah’s favour and honour upon human beings

Verse 70  “We have honoured the sons of Adam; provided them with transport on land and sea; given them for sustenance things good and pure; and conferred on them special favours, above a great part of our creation”

Every human being is honoured by Allah (SWT) and preserving human dignity is a high priority in Islam.   Over the many different forms of creation,  Allah has conferred upon us His special favour.  This He has done by blowing into us His spirit, gifting us with freedom of choice and making the universe and the earth subservient or subject to our use.   In return we are only expected to observe His laws and serve Him as our only Master.   If we are successful in doing so we will be given Jannah as our reward and if we are ungrateful for His many favours and lead lives against His commands, we will end up in Jahannam.

Continues tomorrow InshaAllah…
