Memorize Surah al-Mulk Ramadan 2021 | Verse 26

Published

Āyah 26

قُلۡ إِنَّمَا ٱلۡعِلۡمُ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ وَإِنَّمَاۤ أَنَا۠ نَذِیرࣱ مُّبِینࣱ

(My Prophet,) Say: “That information is exclusively with Allāh. And I am only a clear warner.”

 

Allāh subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) tells the Prophet ﷺ to respond to their question “When is the Day of Judgement?” The answer? No one knows except Allāh subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He). The Prophet Muḥammad ﷺ doesn’t know. The Angels don’t know. No one but God knows. So you can’t slack off until the last minute – because you don’t know when that will be.

This reasserts that the author of this divine book is God. And that the Prophet Muḥammad ﷺ is a human messenger sent to guide and warn. He doesn’t decide who believes or doesn’t. His role is to preach. Our Prophet ﷺ did his best to preach, teach, guide, warn, and remind humanity. We should appreciate his efforts; we ask Allāh subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) to bless, protect, honor, and compliment our beloved messenger Muḥammad ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him).

 

Lastly, the details of the Day of Judgement are known only to God. And He also knows everything else. Nothing we do, think, or feel is hidden from Him. So let’s ask ourselves: do my actions change knowing that Allāh knows everything I do?

إِنَّمَا ٱلۡعِلۡمُ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ

  • The knowledge, that information
  • The timing/details about when the punishment and Day of Judgement will occur
  • Is with Allāh subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) exclusively
    • No one else knows, or even has access or insight into that information

وَإِنَّمَاۤ أَنَا۠ نَذِیرࣱ مُّبِینࣱ

  • I am only, I am nothing but
  • A clear warner
  • Giving a clear warning
  • My only task and duty is to clearly and succinctly inform you of the warning
  • I am not responsible or even aware about who will be punished or when

 

Takeaways:

  • Never forget that Allāh subḥānahu wa ta'āla (glorified and exalted be He) knows and controls everything
  • Nothing is unknown or unclear to Him
  • Our Prophet ﷺ did his best to preach, teach, guide, warn, remind
    • And we should follow in his footsteps ﷺ
