إِلَيْهِ يُرَدُّ عِلْمُ السَّاعَةِ وَمَا تَخْرُجُ مِن ثَمَرَاتٍ مِّنْ أَكْمَامِهَا وَمَا تَحْمِلُ مِنْ أُنثَى وَلَا تَضَعُ إِلَّا بِعِلْمِهِ وَيَوْمَ يُنَادِيهِمْ أَيْنَ شُرَكَائِي قَالُوا آذَنَّاكَ مَا مِنَّا مِن شَهِيدٍ

Translate:

Translation (Tahereh Saffarzadeh): The knowledge of the Resurrection Hour is with Allah only. No fruit comes out of its sheath, nor does a female conceive within her womb nor delivers the burden, but it is known to Him. On that Day Allah will put the question to them stating: "Where are those whom you considered partners for Me?" They will say: "Surely we confess that we cnannot bring any proof for what we claimed."

Translation (M.H. Shakir): To Him is referred the knowledge of the hour, and there come not forth any of the fruits from their coverings, nor does a female bear, nor does she give birth, but with His knowledge; and on the day when He shall call out to them, Where are (those whom you called) My associates? They shall say: We declare to Thee, none of us is a witness.

THE TRANSLATION

THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE HOUR IS WITH HIM. AND NO FRUIT COMES OUT OF ITS SHEATH, AND NOT A FEMALE CONCEIVES (A CHILD), NOR DELIVERS, EXCEPT BY HIS KNOWLEDGE. (AND REMIND OF) THE DAY WHEN HE CALLS THEM (SAYING); ``WHERE ARE MY PARTNER?'' THEY WILL SAY:- ``WE ADMIT THAT; NONE OF US CAN BEAR WITNESS (TO THAT).

 

THE COMMENTARY

ALL THE SECRETS ARE OPEN TO HIM

VERSE NO.47-48

      The idolaters were asking the prophet:- ``When is your promised Resurrection Day coming?'' The answer was:- ``That knowledge is only with God, and no one else.''

      Everything in the universe will happen according to God's knowledge. Not a leaf will fall off a tree, except that God knows the fall. His infinite knowledge encompasses every fruit that comes out of its sheath. As to Every female that conceives or delivers a child, God knows all about it. No one and nothing has any share in His knowledge, power, Lordship, and kingdom of the whole universe. All the secrets of Beings is plain to Him. To put this in another way, we may say, the knowledge of Man is very limited with that of God in comparison. Man's knowledge is a droplet and of God an ocean. God plans, controls, guides, and His knowledge encompasses all things.

      So the knowledge of the hour is also with God, and no one else knows when it will happen, yet its happening is sure enough and there are good evidences to prove it. To say the truth, its occurrence is very near and it may begin in our death bed! When a Man is dead and loses his body, he also loses his sense of feeling the ``time'', as if he is asleep. In such state of our life, one hour and a thousand years are the same in length! This is what we may learn from the case of the seven sleepers. Therefore we should not dispute about matters that are theorized from conjectures without sufficient reason. When the said hour or day comes, falsehood with all its aspects, such as the false gods, and the deified persons, places, animals, or things, will all vanish, and disappear utterly; giving their false place and position to truth. Then Man will lose all chances of repentance and return.
