030 - Soorah ar-Room - (The Romans) - [Makkee]
[030:025] And among His Signs is that the heaven and the earth stand by His Command. Then afterwards when He will call you by a single call, behold, you will come out from the earth (i.e. from your graves for reckoning and recompense).
[030:026] To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth. All are obedient to Him.
[030:027] And He it is Who originates the creation, then He will repeat it (after it has been perished); and this is easier for Him. His is the highest description (i.e. none has the right to be worshipped but He, and there is nothing comparable to Him) in the heavens and in the earth. And He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.
[030:028] He sets forth for you a parable from your own selves: Do you have partners among those whom your right hands possess (i.e. your slaves) to share as equals in the wealth We have bestowed on you whom you fear as you fear each other? Thus do We explain the signs in detail to a people who have sense.
[030:029] Nay, but those who do wrong follow their own lusts without knowledge. Then who will guide him whom All‚h has sent astray? And for such there will be no helpers.
[030:030] So, set you (O Muhammad [sal-All‚hu 'alayhi wa sallam]) your face towards the religion (of pure Isl‚mic Monotheism) HanÓf (worship none but All‚h Alone). All‚h's Fitrah (i.e. All‚h's Isl‚mic Monotheism) with which He has created mankind. No change let there be in Khalq-ill‚h (i.e. the religion of All‚h Ė Isl‚mic Monotheism), that is the straight religion, but most of men know not. (Tafsir At-TabarÓ)
[030:031] (And remain always) turning in repentance to Him (only), and be afraid and dutiful to Him; and perform As-Sal‚t (the prayers) and be not of Al-MushrikŻn (the polytheists, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of All‚h).
[030:032] Of those who split up their religion (i.e. who left the true Isl‚mic Monotheism), and became sects, [i.e. they invented new things in the religion (Bid'ah), and followed their vain desires], each sect rejoicing in that which is with it.
(V.30:28) That is: How do you join to Us partners of that which We created, while you for yourselves will not accept partners from your slaves?
