Quran Chapter 2- 116 (Pt-1, Stg-1) (L-142) - درس قرآن

All are subservient unto God

Surah ‘Al-Baqarah (The Cow) – Chapter – 2)


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

 وَقَالُوا۟ ٱتَّخَذَ ٱللَّهُ وَلَدًا سُبْحَٰنَهُۥ بَل لَّهُۥ مَا فِى ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ كُلٌّ لَّهُۥ قَٰنِتُونَ (116

116.  And they say: Allah hath taken unto Himself a son. Be He glorified! Nay, but whatsoever is in the heavens and the earth is His. All are subservient unto Him.
116.  Wa qaalutta  -khazAllaahu  waladan, SubhaanaH.  Bal-laHuu  maa fis-samaawaati  wal-‘arz.  Kullul-laHuu  qaanituun.


In the previous verse, it has been discussed that the perception of the Children of Israel and the the Christians that Allah Almighty likes a particular direction, is false, “so Allah Almighty refuted it that: the mankind should turn to such particular direction for turning unto Him, and commanded that He is not bound in any side or boundary of any place of worship. But He is the Master of the entire Universe and there are no limitations for Him, so you can turn your faces and bodies to any side for His worship. He will be attentive unto you.

‘Itta  -khaza – (has, have, make, catch, to choose, to elect, to fix upon, to assume, to adopt), translation of the entire words is taken as the same.

Qaanituun – (subservient, loyal, servant), Singular to this word is Qaanat, which means the person; who obeys the command, is obedient. The wordQanuut has been derived from it too. The Prayer in the Witr prayer is called “the Qanuut prayer” because it contains complete obeying and obedience of Allah Almighty in it.

The Christians had another wrong belief that God Almighty has adopted the Jesus Christ (peace be upon Him) as His son (Let us flee to Allah). This faith of theirs’ is the worst kind of plurality with God Almighty. Allah Almighty commands that He is Pure and Sacred from their all these types of false talks regarding the plurality. He has no child. He is One. He is Master of the entire Universe. All that is present in the earth and the skies, is obedient of His Order. His Emperor is everywhere. His relation with the creature is such as the entire universe, the demons and the human beings are worshipers and obedient to Him (only one Worshiped). He is Lord and God of all. The entire things in the universe have bent their heads before His Order. It is also the human beings’ excellence, if they bend their heads in front of Him and not to obey anyone else except Him.

  Muslim nation is Flag-holder of Oneness of God and she preaches the faith: The infidelity (i.e. ascribing plurality) to Allah is the greatest sin. We should avoid from it and we should believe in the Unity of God by our hearts.
