Ayah 17

Surah Al-Mulk, Ayah 17

Reflection Questions:

1. The ayah itself is a question for us to ponder upon; Allah created the earth and the sky, and as He can open up the earth, He can also send something from the sky to destroy us, so don’t we feel fear of Him?
2. Do we need more convincing? Look at nations before us who have been destroyed by rain of stones, by violent wind, etc. because of their disobedience.

Practical tips:

1. Read about previous nations; ‘Aad, Thamud, people of Nuh AS.
2. Derive lessons from the stories of previous nations and their messengers.

أَفَأَمِنتُمْ أَن يَخْسِفَ بِكُمْ جَانِبَ الْبَرِّ أَوْ يُرْسِلَ عَلَيْكُمْ حَاصِبًا ثُمَّ لَا تَجِدُوا لَكُمْ وَكِيلًا

What! Do you then feel secure that He will not cause a tract of land to engulf you or send on you a tornado? Then you shall not find a protector for yourselves.
[17:68]

قُلْ هُوَ الْقَادِرُ عَلَىٰ أَن يَبْعَثَ عَلَيْكُمْ عَذَابًا مِّن فَوْقِكُمْ أَوْ مِن تَحْتِ أَرْجُلِكُمْ أَوْ يَلْبِسَكُمْ شِيَعًا وَيُذِيقَ بَعْضَكُم بَأْسَ بَعْضٍ انظُرْ كَيْفَ نُصَرِّفُ الْآيَاتِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَفْقَهُونَ

Say: He has the power that He should send on you a chastisement from above you or from beneath your feet, or that He should throw you into confusion, (making you) of different parties; and make some of you taste the fighting of others. See how We repeat the communications that they may understand.
[6:65]
