Memorize Surah al-Mulk Ramadan 2021 | Verse 24

Published

Āyah 24

قُلۡ هُوَ ٱلَّذِی ذَرَأَكُمۡ فِی ٱلۡأَرۡضِ وَإِلَیۡهِ تُحۡشَرُون

(My Prophet,) Say: “No doubt, He, God, is The One who created, placed, scattered and spread all of you out throughout the earth. And you will all be returned to Him Alone.”

 

Allāh subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) again tells the Prophet ﷺ to say the following. If not your existence, then what about humanity, your location, lineage, regions? And despite being everywhere, you’re all going to be returned back to Allāh subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) alone.

You can try and hide wherever you want in the entire universe, but you’re going to be brought back before Allāh subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He).

 

Allāh tells us in Surah al-Ḥujurāt:

یَـٰۤأَیُّهَا ٱلنَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقۡنَـٰكُم مِّن ذَكَرࣲ وَأُنثَىٰ وَجَعَلۡنَـٰكُمۡ شُعُوبࣰا وَقَبَاۤىِٕلَ لِتَعَارَفُوۤا۟ۚ

Humanity! We created all of you from a single man and a single woman. We made you all into different families, tribes, groups. So go know and recognize each other! And this diversity should never lead us to be arrogant about our family, our roots, our countries, etc.

It also serves as a wake up call to the idea that “we’ll all just die” or “it’s just nothingness”. That’s not the case; there is a reality, and another fully real tangible experienceable life to come. So you won’t be getting away with what you’ve done.

Be grateful for where you are on earth. And prepare for what’s after death.

 

قُلۡ هُوَ ٱلَّذِی ذَرَأَكُمۡ فِی ٱلۡأَرۡضِ

  • Say
  • He is The One who
  • Created, placed, spread, scattered all of you
  • In, on, throughout, and all over the world
    • North, South, East, West

وَإِلَیۡهِ تُحۡشَرُونَ

  • To Him, and to Him Alone
    • Only to Allāh subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He)
  • All of you will be returned
    • Not your doing, not something you opt into

 

Takeaways:

  • Realize how blessed we are to be so diverse
  • Allāh subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) tells us in al-Ḥujurāt:

یَـٰۤأَیُّهَا ٱلنَّاسُ إِنَّا خَلَقۡنَـٰكُم مِّن ذَكَرࣲ وَأُنثَىٰ وَجَعَلۡنَـٰكُمۡ شُعُوبࣰا وَقَبَاۤىِٕلَ لِتَعَارَفُوۤا۟ۚ

  • Humanity! We created all of you from a single man and a single woman
  • We made you all into different families, tribes, groups
  • So that you know and recognize each other
  • Never be arrogant about your family, roots, country
  • Our final destination is not the earth, it’s not decay, it’s not “nothingness”
    • It’s back to God
