Tafseer of Surah Al-Mulk (verse 14–15)

In verse No. 14, where Allah Almighty says

أَلَا يَعْلَمُ مَنْ خَلَقَ وَهُوَٱللَّطِيفُ ٱلْخَبِيرُ

This means, “How could He not know His Own creation? For He alone is the Most Subtle, All-Aware.”. The all-knowing, complete being who knows everything, Al-Khabib. So, indeed, if Allah Almighty is creating everything, he is the most kind to his creation, he created everything for a reason, he created everything for hikmah. Some people think, that what is the benefits of this or what are the benefits of that and why this has been created and what is the benefits of that specific, tree or animal or ant, insect or whatever, we don’t know but Allah Almighty he knows, he is Al-Khabib, he knows everything and we cannot compare our knowledge with Allah’s knowledge. Allah Almighty said, in some other chapter in some other verses that, What it was giving to you from knowledge is very little.

So, we have nothing, we can compare our knowledge with Allah Almighty. How we can put our minds and our thought processes with Allah’s creation I’ll give you just a simple example now, we are talking about the one who created everything right he created everything and at the beginning, in the first verse Allah Almighty as we said, بِيَدِهِ ٱلْمُلْكُ, that he is the king of everything, he controls over everything.

So, now here we’re talking about مَنْ خَلَقَ, who created everything. I’ll just give you an example; Now people might ask why Allah Almighty created snakes, the snakes are so dangerous, the snake is so poisonous and it can easily bite anyone and it will cause this person to death, right? But nowadays we know that people are taking the snake as well as its poison out of it and they are putting it into the medicine and they are curing many diseased people out of this. How many diseases do they have, that they are curing with these pills and these pills contain some percentage or little percentage of that poison of that snake, just imagine Sub-Han Allah.

So, Allah Almighty didn’t create a snake for no reason, no there is a reason behind it but maybe you, we didn’t know this question, maybe people asked 200/ 500 years ago, that’s why is like this and why the snake is there and why it’s so poison and why Allah Almighty is creating, we don’t ask we don’t ask any question, we don’t question Allah Almighty right. But nowadays, because of science and technology, medicine, and everything, we are at the peak of that thing and Allah knows best after five, ten hundred years later. What will happen to science and technology, where at which level or up to which level reach, we don’t know. But nowadays, we all know that we are using the poison of the snake to cure some other diseases right.

We are putting into the medicine some percentage of it or little quantity of it or whatever. So, imagine this is one example out of millions and zillions of examples of the creation of Allah Almighty. So, this is what you will benefits from this ayah, where Allah Almighty says, أَلَا يَعْلَمُ مَنْ خَلَقَ وَهُوَٱللَّطِيفُ ٱلْخَبِيرُ.

In verse No: 15, Allah Almighty says,

هُوَ ٱلَّذِى جَعَلَ لَكُمُ ٱلْأَرْضَ ذَلُولًۭا فَٱمْشُوا۟ فِى مَنَاكِبِهَا وَكُلُوا۟ مِن رِّزْقِهِ وَإِلَيْهِ ٱلنُّشُورُ
