THE COMMENTARY

GOD'S INFINITE KNOWLEDGE

VERSE NO.8-10

      Here, mention is made of some of God's attributes that completes the discussion of Monotheism, as well as that of the Resurrection Day. The word is on the infinite knowledge of Allah, which is the source of the great and wonderful order that prevails throughout the universe, and the wonders existing in all the being things!:-

      ``Allah knows what every female bears, and what does a womb fall short of, and what does it exceed.''

      The secrecy of a female's womb is a good instance to point at God's infinite knowledge, and His perception of the hidden or exposed facts; because, even the female herself does not know what is hidden in her womb, of a female or a male, a well formed or malformed; a single creature or a couple? Is it to be born short of the standard period of nine months, or exceeds that length of time?

      It does not make any difference for God, whether something is hidden or exposed. Our most hidden thoughts and motives are known to Him, that things visible or invisible are the same for God to see! This is because seen and unseen are based on relativity, according to the sense of sight of creatures. For example, we, mankind, own some sensual faculties like the sense of sight, or the sense of hearing. The range of view in our vision is limited. Our visible spectrum has wave lengths between 3800 and 8000 Angstroms, and we cannot see beyond these two extremes, i.e. infra red and ultraviolet. (Angstrom is a minute unit of length equal to one hundred-millionth of a centimeter used in expressing the length of light waves.) So, whatever is beyond our visible spectrum we call it the unseen, and the invisible world. So is the case with our sense of hearing, and other faculties that we have. But, because the glorified Substance of our Lord is infinite and limitless, seen and unseen are the same for Him, and He can see both of them the same!

 

EMBRYOLOGY

      The fetus; its wonders, laws, and stages of development, have been repeatedly pointed to in the Holy Qurän, making the undeniable proofs of Monotheism and God's infinite knowledge of the seen or unseen.

      Embryology is a young science the development of which has recently been rapid and sure, revealing many secrets to mankind about his own creation. All these informations are good and reasonable lessons on the vital subject of monotheism.

 

 

THERE IS A MEASURE FOR EVERYTHING

      In many verses we read that everything and every affair has a measure. Anything, be it physical or spiritual has certain extremes, or utmost points or borders, which is dangerous to exceed or transgress. In other word, nothing in this world exists without a measure or without an account. As an example we may mention the blood which circulates in our veins. It consists of some twenty or more elements, all of which must have a certain amount or number! An increase or decrease of that amount or number will result in a dangerous fault and failure, which manifests itself in some sort of a disease! Such an account is not only in man's blood, but in everything that can exist! Therefore, if man wants to live free of defects and faults he must observe the medium in between the two settled extremes of all things and all affairs.
