Surah Ankabut (29) 05/02/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Sura 29 (Ankabut- The spider)

Understanding the origin of creation

Verses 19-20
See they not how Allah originates creation, then repeats it: truly that is easy for Allah.
– Say: Travel through the earth and see how Allah did originate creation; so will Allah produce a later creation: For Allah has power over all things.

Many times in the Quran, Allah tells us to travel through the earth so that we may learn from past civilisations. In addition, these verses tell us to travel in order to increase our knowledge of Allah and development of our own creation.  History, archeology, geology, paleontology, etc. are all encouraged by Allah (SWT) as sources of knowledge and lessons for the future.
