A look at third Section (Rakuu’)
Surah ‘Al-‘Baqarah (The Cow) – Chapter – 2)
Stage – 1, Verse – 29 of 286, Section – 3 of 40 (Part - 1)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
After describing the circumstances of Disbelievers and Hypocrites in primary two Sections, the third Section was begun with effect from this topic that it is necessary for the human being that he should bow his head before God Almighty courteously by manifesting his humility and obey His Commands, so that he may be bestowed with blessings of life in the both Worlds. It is first of all demands of Allah Almighty from the mankind.
Then, it is commanded that one should draw his full attention unto Holy Qur’an for knowing His Commands, equal to which, there is neither any other book or scripture and nor can be. For causing to understand this reality, He asked a very simple question surprisingly: How can you deny Allah Almighty, while you have no authority of creating and finishing yourselves or any other living being.
About the Truth of the Word of God Almighty, this simple reason has been presented that if someone is doubtful that it is not the Word of Allah Almighty, but written by any human being, then he should show by bringing ten Chapters like This, if not ten; then bring three, if not three then bring only one like this Word. If you cannot do so alone, then include your other companions, scholars and writers for your help in this matter and try your best.
The Section ends at this point that O people: All things on the earth have been created for you only. And the heavens have been created for the purpose that you may reap advantage through the sun, the moon, the stars and raining. Therefore you should recognize your dignity and perform such works; which are befitting for you.
If we understand this verse and cause to impress it on the minds of the nations of the world, then it will be greatest service of the humanity. If the Idolaters and the Disbelievers may understand this fact that the earth, the sky and the entire universe have been created for the humankind, then, how it is possible that master of all these things and prominent from the entire universe, mankind, may prostrate before those things which are most inferior to him instead of own original Lord, God Almighty, Allah; The Most High.
Which Section will be begun after this, particularly it has been explained in that; What is the rank of the human being, and how can he dwell a successful life in the world, so that the humankind may estimate correctly about his greatness and dignity, and he should not commit any such work, due to which he fall down from his higher dignity.
