Surah Saffat (37) 15/04/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Sura 37 (Saffat)

There is none like unto Allah (SWT)

Verses 151 – 157 “Is it not that they say, from their own invention,  “Allah has begotten children”? but they are liars! Did He (then) choose daughters rather than sons?  What is the matter with you? How judge you?  Will you not then receive admonition? Or have you an authority manifest?  Then bring ye your Book (of authority) if ye be truthful…. Glory to Allah! (He is free) from the things they ascribe (to Him)!”

The rejecters make many false claims against Allah SWT, the worst of which is that He has offspring.  Similar falsities were some amongst the Jews and Christians (9:30) after the time of their relevant messengers.  In doing so, they reduce Allah’s almighty status by giving Him human characteristics. True belief in Allah (SWT) should keep us away from any temptation to associate anyone or anything with Him as He is unique in every way possible.  In responding to them Allah SWT asks them to produce some manifest authority to justify their beliefs.   By “manifest authority” means an authority that is worthy of being from a Divine source.

Cross reference – Sura 6:101 and 112:1-4
