Muslims – the Pioneers of Renaissance

Qur’aanic Verse 25:62:

25:62

Transliteration:

62. Wahuwa allathee jaAAala allayla waalnnahara khilfatan liman arada an yaththakkara aw arada shukooran

Translation:

62. And He it is who has made the night and the day succeed each other for the one who would ponder or be grateful.12

Study Note:

12. There is a distinct divine prompting here for the believers to ponder over the natural phenomenon of the day and the night. Some Muslims with a scientific bend of mind did ponder and were successful in discovering that the earth was not stationary as people believed till then. Their pioneering discoveries led to the discovery of the real cause behind the occurrence of day and night. [Source] And for the Muslims in general the phenomenon is something to be very grateful about to their Lord; for, without it, it would be impossible to live on earth.


 The above is an extract from Qur’aanic Studies Manzil IV, which will soon, inshaAllah, be published on Amazon Kindle. Manzil IMabzil II & Manzil III of the series are already published.

  1. Sura Furqaan 25/ 62
    And that Allah has made arrangments in the outer universe that night and day succeed eachother,and the light continue to follow darkness(Similarly ,in the human world ,He has made arrangments that no nation would remain in darkness forever and that the light of Wahi should reach everyone.) Whoever wants to follow the right path in the light of the Wahi should be able to do so and thus receive full reward for his efforts and deeds.
