Chapter 91 – Shams (The Sun)

  1. “By the soul and Him who perfected it” – never thought about this before but this is the first picture that opened and I wondered for the first time why Allah would swear upon Himself and that too in the third person. Forget about Allah swearing upon all His own creations but why does He swear upon the soul? Any idea?

    • Allah also swears by Himself on verse 5,6. I must confess I don”t know why He is doing that, but I didn’t pay much significance to that.

    quran doesn’t just tell stories.. it’s in arabic because it’s a complicated can intrepet it in many different perspective..
    as i read it first, my first thought was like.. was thousand years ago..and here it tells about the occurance of the sun, the moon, day and night. if the ppl in the past have studied it, they cud easily intepret the scientific facts in these verses.

    and here ‘“By the soul and Him who perfected it” : he just made it clear and clarified it again and again that He is the one who creates souls and by His Will, he can do anythin to it..perfected it..

    • 1) Both Yusuf Ali and Pickthall uses the masculine translation, so I have also used the “his” rather than “its”.

      2) You are welcome. It is always nice to see the hard work in this blog appreciated. Please give my love to your kids, and please keep me and my family in your prayers.
