Al Naba' (Great News) (78) - 40

1        Concerning what are they disputing?

2        Concerning the Great News

3        About which they cannot agree.

4        Verily they shall soon (come to) know!

5        Verily verily they shall soon (come to) know!

6>        Have We not made the earth as a wide expanse

7>        And the mountains as pegs?

8>        And (have We not) created you in pairs        
       *** The Bible never mentioned that humanity was created in 'pairs', since only Adam, the male of Mankind was created before Woman was created.

       In fact it was ONLY the animals that were created in pairs as described in the
Bible ***

9>        And made your sleep for rest

10>        And made the night as a covering

11>        And made the day as means of subsistence?

12>        And (have We not) built over you the seven firmaments

       *** There is no mention of Seven Firmaments in the Biblical CREATION story.

       The idea of the Seven Firmaments is PIRATED - as usual in the Quran -  from Jewish traditions and is NOT mentioned in the Bible ***

13>        And placed (therein) a Light of Splendor?

14>        And do We not send down from the clouds water in abundance

15>        That We may produce therewith corn and vegetables

16>        And gardens of luxurious growth?

17>        Verily the Day of Sorting Out is a thing appointed

18>        The Day that the Trumpet shall be sounded and ye shall come forth in crowds;

       #5897        The angel charged with the sounding of the Trumpet is Israfil. It will herald Judgment. Cf. 1. 20; also xxxix. 68, and n. 4343; and lxix. 13, n. 5648.#(E)

       *** Since the pagan Arabs had no concept of angels then from where did the interpreter get this name ?

       This name does not even appear in the traditions of the Jews ***

19>        And the heavens shall be opened as if there were doors

20>        And the mountains shall vanish as if they were a mirage.

21>        Truly Hell is as a place of ambush

22>        For the transgressors a place of destination:

23>        They will dwell therein for ages.

24>        Nothing cool shall they tastes therein nor any drink

25>        Save a boiling fluid and a fluid dark murky intensely cold

26>        A fitting recompense (for them).

27>        For that they used not to fear any account (for their deeds)

28>        But they (impudently) treated Our Signs as false.

29>        And all things have We preserved on record.

30>        "So taste ye (the fruits of your deeds); for no increase shall We grant you except in Punishment."

31>        Verily for the righteous there will be a fulfillment of (the Heart's) desires;

32>        Gardens enclosed and Grape-vines;

33        Companions of Equal Age;

34        And a Cup full (to the Brim).

35>        No Vanity shall they hear therein nor Untruth

36>        Recompense from thy Lord a Gift (amply) sufficient

37>        (From) the Lord of the heavens and the earth and all between (Allah) Most Gracious: none shall have power to argue with Him.

38>        The Day that the Spirit [Rooh] and the angels will stand forth in ranks none shall speak except any who is permitted by (Allah) Most Gracious and he will say what is right.

       #5911        The Spirit: see n. 5677 to lxx. 4. Some Commentators understand by "the Spirit" the angel Gabriel as he is charged specially with bringing Messages to human prophets: see xxi. 193, n. 3224. (78.38) 5912        See n. 5910 above. No one has the right to speak before the Judgment-Seat; but certain great Dignitaries may be given permission to plead for mercy for sinners, and they will only so plead if the mercy is not negatory of Allah's universal justice.#

       *** The Spirit has nothing to do with Gabriel but more to do with the Almighty.

       Yet again, we find that the interpreter of the Quran facing extreme difficulty in trying to explain the unintelligible***

39>        That Day will be the sure Reality: therefore whoso will let him take a (straight) Return to his Lord!

40>        Verily We have warned you of a Penalty near the Day when man will see (the Deeds) which his hands have sent forth and the Unbeliever will say "Woe unto me! Would that I were (mere) dust!"
