Management of the earth
Lesson # 861 from the Noble Quran
Management of the earth
Surah ‘A’-RAAF(The Heights) – Chapter – 7)
Stage – 2, Verse –57 of 206, Section
– 7 of 24 (Part - 8)
In the name ofAllah, the Beneficent, the
And He it is Who sendeth the winds as tidings
heralding His mercy, till, when they bear a cloud heavy (with rain), We lead
it to a dead land, and then cause water to descend thereon and thereby bring
forth fruits of every kind. Thus shall We bring forth the dead; that haply ye
‘Aqallat – (bore,
burdened), it is past tense, origin of which is ‘iqlaalun. This word has been derived from qillatun. Actual meaning of it is “to be less” and its opposite
word is kasratun (to be more). Many words
are made from it as “’aqli-yat, qillat,
qaliil etc.” After that, its meaning became “to burden, to bear”, because
any loader will lift anything at that time, when it will consider the load less
than its capacity. In this meaning, the word ‘iqlaal is used, which means “to bear”.
One more word ‘istaqlaal also has the same meaning,
that is to say; to pick up own weight at one’s own, and consider it less,
whether it is heavy, and without getting support in this matter from any other.
In this verse, those things regarding rectification of the earth have been
mentioned, which Allah Almighty has fixed with His Omnipotence, and in which
any mankind cannot interfere.
commanded: Behold! In what manner Allah Almighty has arranged to rain on the
land with His Mercy? At first, the pleasant winds blow. Then those winds bring
the clouds collecting from hither and thither. After that, Allah Almighty showers
down the water on the earth from it. Resultant, delicious fruit and beautiful
flowers come out from the land after raining.
Think over it
and you will come to know that as Allah Almighty brought the dead land to life
with His Mercy causing to rain the water, similarly, He will bring to life the
human beings after death. Being dried or parched of the land is just like its
You see that
Allah Almighty brings it to life again through the rain, in like manner, He has
such sources, with which, the dead humankind will come back to life and after
being alive, the human beings will acquire reward or award against their good
or bad deeds.
it that: Reap advantage in this world from spiritual rain, which Allah Almighty
poured down through His Prophets, Messengers (peace be upon Them) and Holy
Scriptures, if you wish to prosper (bud and blossom).
