Surah An-Nisa, Verse 1:
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اتَّقُوا رَبَّكُمُ الَّذِي خَلَقَكُم مِّن نَّفْسٍ وَاحِدَةٍ وَخَلَقَ مِنْهَا زَوْجَهَا وَبَثَّ مِنْهُمَا رِجَالًا كَثِيرًا وَنِسَاءً وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ الَّذِي تَسَاءَلُونَ بِهِ وَالْأَرْحَامَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ عَلَيْكُمْ رَقِيبًا
O mankind! Be dutiful to your Lord, Who created you from a single person (Adam), & from him (Adam) He created his wife [Hawwa (Eve)], & from them both He created many men & women and fear Allah through Whom you demand your mutual (rights), & (do not cut the relations of) the wombs (kinship). Surely, Allah is Ever an All-Watcher over you.
To He Who is Our originator, Our founder, Who created us and fashioned us into our different forms, to Him, subhanahu wata ala, we owe our utmost submission. Indeed it is an amazing that we are created, while before that we were nothing, & we openly disobey the commands of Our Creator.
“How can you disbelieve in Allah? Seeing that you were dead & He gave you life. Then He will give you death, then again will bring you to life (on the day of resurrection) & then unto Him you will return.” [2:28]
“Does not man see that We created him from Nutfah (semen drops)! Yet behold! He (stands forth) as an open opponent.” [36:77]
Subhanallah, He being The Most merciful records these verses to serve as reminders.
Let’s strive to obey Allah (swt) by following His commands & His messenger, (saw). Let obeying Him drive us to have taqwa (God conciousness) of Him wherever we find ourselves, for indeed He said: ‘Surely, Allah is Ever an All-Watcher over you”.
“O you who believe! Have the taqwa (conciousness, fear) of Allah as it is His due right. And do not die except in a state of islam (as muslims) [3:102]
May He (swt) gift us with more from His ‘Gems’ and make of those who live with the whole Quran, in heart & mind, ameen.
