Surah Maryam (19) 21/10/2015


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Surah 19 (Maryam)

Verse 92
For it is not consonant with the majesty of (Allah) Most Gracious that He should beget a son.

Throughout this Surah, the Attribute of Allah, Ar-Rahmaan, has been used 17 times, no other Name or Attribute has been used to describe Allah SWT.The verse in reference and the overall context of the Surah deals with Isa AS and the erroneous beliefs that people have attributed to him.
The repeated mention of the Attribute meaning the Most Merciful, Most Compassionate, tells us that no saviour is needed for mankind as Allah will forgive us if we turn to Him. We can all be our own saviours if we repent and turn to Allah and don’t need anyone to atone for our misdeeds.

Further reference is Surah 39 verse 52

Say: “O my Servants who have transgressed against their souls! Despair not of the Mercy of Allah. for Allah forgives all sins: for He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

Continues tomorrow InshaAllah…
