بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.(1:1)

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ

All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.(1:2)

In this way a beautiful opening is given to indicate Who it is actually about in the world and in the Holy Scriptures.

Mankind shall have come to know Allah Al-Aliyy (God the Most High) Who is responsible for the “being” of everything. He is namely “The Being” in it self. He is the “I Am Who is“. The “I am that I am Ehyeh-Asher-Ehyeh אהיה אשר אהיה

“فقال الله لموسى أهيه الذي أهيه.وقال هكذا تقول لبني اسرائيل أهيه ارسلني اليكم” (خر 3:14 Arabic)

“And God said to him, I AM WHAT I AM: and he said, Say to the children of Israel, I AM has sent me to you.” (Ex 3:14 BBE)

He that was, is and always shall be appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, as God Almighty, but by His Name JEHOVAH He was not known to them.

“وانا ظهرت لابراهيم واسحق ويعقوب باني الاله القادر على كل شيء.واما باسمي يهوه فلم أعرف عندهم.” (خر 6:3 Arabic)

“I let myself be seen by Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as God, the Ruler of all; but they had no knowledge of my name Yahweh.” (Ex 6:3 BBE)

About Him Who let His Breath hover over the earth, all mankind shall come to see Him as the Beginning of the beginnings, the Alpha and the Omega, which is and which was and which is to come, the Almighty.

“انا هو الالف والياء البداية والنهاية يقول الرب الكائن والذي كان والذي يأتي القادر على كل شيء” (رؤ 1:8 Arabic)

“I am the First and the Last, says the Lord God who is and was and is to come, the Ruler of all.” (Re 1:8 BBE)

He Who was there before all came to be known made Himself known as the Beneficent, the Ar-Raheem or Merciful.

الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

The Beneficent, the Merciful.(1:3)

His beneficence reaches so far that any man who wills can meet His undeserved Kindness. Namely, through that undeserved kindness, salvation has come to sinful man.

“لانكم بالنعمة مخلّصون بالايمان وذلك ليس منكم.هو عطية الله.” (اف 2:8 Arabic)

“Because by grace you have salvation through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is given by God:” (Eph 2:8 BBE)

All He asks and counts on is humility and faith in Him and His prophets.

وَاسْتَعِينُوا بِالصَّبْرِ وَالصَّلَاةِ ۚ وَإِنَّهَا لَكَبِيرَةٌ إِلَّا عَلَى الْخَاشِعِينَ

And seek assistance through patience and prayer, and most surely it is a hard thing except for the humble ones,(2:45)

He is ready and willing to help anyone who wants to search for Him and ask Him.

“اسألوا تعطوا.اطلبوا تجدوا.اقرعوا يفتح لكم.” (مت 7:7 Arabic)

“Make a request, and it will be answered; what you are searching for you will get; give the sign, and the door will be open to you:” (Mt 7:7 BBE)

وَإِنَّ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْكِتَابِ لَمَنْ يُؤْمِنُ بِاللَّهِ وَمَا أُنْزِلَ إِلَيْكُمْ وَمَا أُنْزِلَ إِلَيْهِمْ خَاشِعِينَ لِلَّهِ لَا يَشْتَرُونَ بِآيَاتِ اللَّهِ ثَمَنًا قَلِيلًا ۗ أُولَٰئِكَ لَهُمْ أَجْرُهُمْ عِنْدَ رَبِّهِمْ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ سَرِيعُ الْحِسَابِ

And most surely of the followers of the Book there are those who believe in Allah and (in) that which has been revealed to you and (in) that which has been revealed to them, being lowly before Allah; they do not take a small price for the communications of Allah; these it is that have their reward with their Lord; surely Allah is quick in reckoning.(3:199)

إِنَّ الْمُسْلِمِينَ وَالْمُسْلِمَاتِ وَالْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ وَالْقَانِتِينَ وَالْقَانِتَاتِ وَالصَّادِقِينَ وَالصَّادِقَاتِ وَالصَّابِرِينَ وَالصَّابِرَاتِ وَالْخَاشِعِينَ وَالْخَاشِعَاتِ وَالْمُتَصَدِّقِينَ وَالْمُتَصَدِّقَاتِ وَالصَّائِمِينَ وَالصَّائِمَاتِ وَالْحَافِظِينَ فُرُوجَهُمْ وَالْحَافِظَاتِ وَالذَّاكِرِينَ اللَّهَ كَثِيرًا وَالذَّاكِرَاتِ أَعَدَّ اللَّهُ لَهُمْ مَغْفِرَةً وَأَجْرًا عَظِيمًا

Surely the men who submit and the women who submit, and the believing men and the believing women, and the obeying men and the obeying women, and the truthful men and the truthful women, and the patient men and the patient women and the humble men and the humble women, and the almsgiving men and the almsgiving women, and the fasting men and the fasting women, and the men who guard their private parts and the women who guard, and the men who remember Allah much and the women who remember– Allah has prepared for them forgiveness and a mighty reward.(33:35)

وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ أَنَّكَ تَرَى الْأَرْضَ خَاشِعَةً فَإِذَا أَنْزَلْنَا عَلَيْهَا الْمَاءَ اهْتَزَّتْ وَرَبَتْ ۚ إِنَّ الَّذِي أَحْيَاهَا لَمُحْيِي الْمَوْتَىٰ ۚ إِنَّهُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

And among His signs is this, that you see the earth still, but when We send down on it the water, it stirs and swells: most surely He Who gives it life is the Giver of life to the dead; surely He has power over all things.(41:39)

Through His Word – Logos – (His Breath that formed words) came into being, and He saw that it was good.

“في البدء خلق الله السموات والارض.” (تك 1:1 Arabic)

“3 ¶ وقال الله ليكن نور فكان نور. 4 وراى الله النور انه حسن.وفصل الله بين النور والظلمة. 5 ودعا الله النور نهارا والظلمة دعاها ليلا.وكان مساء وكان صباح يوما واحدا” (تك 1:3-5 Arabic)

“6 ¶ وقال الله ليكن جلد في وسط المياه.وليكن فاصلا بين مياه ومياه. 7 فعمل الله الجلد وفصل بين المياه التي تحت الجلد والمياه التي فوق الجلد.وكان كذلك. 8 ودعا الله الجلد سماء.وكان مساء وكان صباح يوما ثانيا 9 ¶ وقال الله لتجتمع المياه تحت السماء الى مكان واحد ولتظهر اليابسة.وكان كذلك.” (تك 1:6-9 Arabic)

“11 وقال الله لتنبت الارض عشبا وبقلا يبزر بزرا وشجرا ذا ثمر يعمل ثمرا كجنسه بزره فيه على الارض.وكان كذلك. 12 فاخرجت الارض عشبا وبقلا يبزر بزرا كجنسه وشجرا يعمل ثمرا بزره فيه كجنسه.ورأى الله ذلك انه حسن.” (تك 1:11-12 Arabic)

“14 ¶ وقال الله لتكن انوار في جلد السماء لتفصل بين النهار والليل.وتكون لآيات واوقات وايام وسنين. 15 وتكون انوارا في جلد السماء لتنير على الارض.وكان كذلك.” (تك 1:14-15 Arabic)

“20 ¶ وقال الله لتفض المياه زحافات ذات نفس حية وليطر طير فوق الارض على وجه جلد السماء. 21 فخلق الله التنانين العظام وكل ذوات الانفس الحية الدبّابة التي فاضت بها المياه كاجناسها وكل طائر ذي جناح كجنسه.ورأى الله ذلك انه حسن.” (تك 1:20-21 Arabic)

“24 ¶ وقال الله لتخرج الارض ذوات انفس حية كجنسها.بهائم ودبابات ووحوش ارض كاجناسها.وكان كذلك. 25 فعمل الله وحوش الارض كاجناسها والبهائم كاجناسها وجميع دبابات الارض كاجناسها.ورأى الله ذلك انه حسن.” (تك 1:24-25 Arabic)

“26 ¶ وقال الله نعمل الانسان على صورتنا كشبهنا.فيتسلطون على سمك البحر وعلى طير السماء وعلى البهائم وعلى كل الارض وعلى جميع الدبابات التي تدب على الارض. 27 فخلق الله الانسان على صورته.على صورة الله خلقه.ذكرا وانثى خلقهم.” (تك 1:26-27 Arabic)

“ورأى الله كل ما عمله فاذا هو حسن جدا.وكان مساء وكان صباح يوما سادسا” (تك 1:31 Arabic)

“At the first God made the heaven and the earth.” (Ge 1:1 BBE)

“3  And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4 And God, looking on the light, saw that it was good: and God made a division between the light and the dark, 5 Naming the light, Day, and the dark, Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.” (Ge 1:3-5 BBE)

“6  And God said, Let there be a solid arch stretching over the waters, parting the waters from the waters. 7 And God made the arch for a division between the waters which were under the arch and those which were over it: and it was so. 8 And God gave the arch the name of Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day. 9 ¶ And God said, Let the waters under the heaven come together in one place, and let the dry land be seen: and it was so.” (Ge 1:6-9 BBE)

“11 And God said, Let grass come up on the earth, and plants producing seed, and fruit-trees giving fruit, in which is their seed, after their sort: and it was so. 12 And grass came up on the earth, and every plant producing seed of its sort, and every tree producing fruit, in which is its seed, of its sort: and God saw that it was good.” (Ge 1:11-12 BBE)

“14  And God said, Let there be lights in the arch of heaven, for a division between the day and the night, and let them be for signs, and for marking the changes of the year, and for days and for years: 15 And let them be for lights in the arch of heaven to give light on the earth: and it was so.” (Ge 1:14-15 BBE)

“20  And God said, Let the waters be full of living things, and let birds be in flight over the earth under the arch of heaven. 21 And God made great sea-beasts, and every sort of living and moving thing with which the waters were full, and every sort of winged bird: and God saw that it was good.” (Ge 1:20-21 BBE)

“24  And God said, Let the earth give birth to all sorts of living things, cattle and all things moving on the earth, and beasts of the earth after their sort: and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth after its sort, and the cattle after their sort, and everything moving on the face of the earth after its sort: and God saw that it was good.” (Ge 1:24-25 BBE)

“26  And God said, Let us make man in our image, like us: and let him have rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over the cattle and over all the earth and over every living thing which goes flat on the earth. 27 And God made man in his image, in the image of God he made him: male and female he made them.” (Ge 1:26-27 BBE)

“And God saw everything which he had made and it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.” (Ge 1:31 BBE)

Everything that God provides is good and solid, and He wants it to let it be. But He also wants everyone to know and respect Him for Who He is and for what He has done, is doing, and will do.

مَا يَوَدُّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِنْ أَهْلِ الْكِتَابِ وَلَا الْمُشْرِكِينَ أَنْ يُنَزَّلَ عَلَيْكُمْ مِنْ خَيْرٍ مِنْ رَبِّكُمْ ۗ وَاللَّهُ يَخْتَصُّ بِرَحْمَتِهِ مَنْ يَشَاءُ ۚ وَاللَّهُ ذُو الْفَضْلِ الْعَظِيمِ

Those who disbelieve from among the followers of the Book do not like, nor do the polytheists, that the good should be sent down to you from your Lord, and Allah chooses especially whom He pleases for His mercy, and Allah is the Lord of mighty grace.(2:105)

The Aj-Jaleel as Al Khaleeq deserves to be praised for His beautiful creation. By the beauty of nature His Work or HIs Hand can be seen. As Ar-Raheem (the Merciful) the Al-Mubdi’ allows us to live in His world. Out of respect people should have no other gods next to the Only One True God, Who is above all gods.
