Ayat of the Day: Allah is He Who is the Creator, the One Who brings into existence from nothingness (i.e. the Inventor), the Bestower of Form; (in short,) all Beautiful Names belong to Him alone. All that is in the heavens and the earth glorifies Him, the Lord of Honour, the Most Wise. (al-Hashr, 59:24)

In the Name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Ever-Merciful
1. The Most Compassionate (is He),
2. Who (Himself) taught the Qur’an to (the Arab Messenger [blessings and peace be upon him]).*
* This Holy Verse was revealed in reply to the allegation fabricated by the disbelievers and the idolaters that (God forbid!) somebody used to teach the Qur’an secretly to the Prophet Muhammad (blessings and peace be upon him). See: Tafsir al-Baghawi, al-Khazin, al-Qushayri, al-Bahr al-Muhit, al-Jumal, Fath al-Qadir, al-Mazhari, al-Lubab, al-Sawi, al-Siraj al-Munir, al-Maraghi, Adwa’ al-Bayan and Majma‘ al-Bayan, etc.
3. He is the One Who created (this Absolutely Perfect) man.
4. He alone taught him the art of expression and communication (i.e., taught the True Messenger ma kana wa ma yakun).*
* The leading exegetes have explained the meaning of al-bayan as ma kana wa ma yakun—whatever existed and whatever will come into existence. References: Tafsir al-Baghawi, al-Khazin, al-Jumal, al-Mazhari, al-Lubab, Zad al-Masir, al-Sawi, al-Siraj al-Munir and Majma‘ al-Bayan.
5. The sun and the moon are rotating according to the configuration determined (by Him).
6. And the herbs spread over the earth, and all (species of) the trees prostrate themselves (to Him alone).
7. And He is the One Who has maintained the sky raised high and (He is the One) Who has set up the balance (for justice),
8. So that you violate not the balance whilst weighing.
9. And keep weighing justly and do not make the balance fall short.
10. He is the One Who has spread out the earth for the creatures.
11. There are fruits in it and blossom-bearing date-palms,
12. And chaff-covered grain and fragrant (fruits and) blooms.
13. So, (O assembly of jinn and men,) which of your Lord’s blessings will you deny?

15. And created the jinn from a flame of fire.
16. So which of your Lord’s blessings will you both deny?

34. So which of your Lord’s blessings will you both deny?
