[10:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
[10:1] A. L. R.* These (letters) are the proofs of this book of wisdom.
*10:1 These letters constitute a major portion of the Quran’s awesome mathematical code and proof of divine authorship. See Appendix 1 for details.
[10:2] Is it too much of a wonder for the people that we inspired a man like them? He (was inspired to say), “You shall warn the people, and give good news to those who believe that they have attained a position of prominence at their Lord.” The disbelievers said, “This is a clever magician!”
[10:3] Your only Lord is GOD; the One who created the heavens and the earth in six days, then assumed all authority. He controls all matters. There is no intercessor, except in accordance with His will. Such is GOD your Lord. You shall worship Him. Would you not take heed?
[10:4] To Him is your ultimate return, all of you. This is GOD’s truthful promise. He initiates the creation, then repeats it, in order to reward those who believe and lead a righteous life, equitably. As for those who disbelieve, they incur hellish drinks, and a painful retribution for their disbelieving.
[10:5] He is the One who rendered the sun radiant, and the moon a light, and He designed its phases that you may learn to count the years and to calculate. GOD did not create all this, except for a specific purpose. He explains the revelations for people who know.
[10:6] Surely, in the alternation of night and day, and what GOD created in the heavens and the earth, there are proofs for people who are righteous.
The Arabic word “ayat” means proof and verse. Pending on how it translates it can completely change the meaning of the verse per 10:1.
[17:101] We supported Moses with nine profound miracles—ask the Children of Israel. When he went to them, Pharaoh said to him, “I think that you, Moses, are bewitched.”
In 10:2 who is the “he”? Is this referring to a single messenger or a general statement towards all messengers?
In 10:3 we as human beings will never fully understand that “God controls all matters”. That God is in complete control. How would life be if we fully understood this principle?
We would be fully content, complete peace, complete tranquility. We would never lose our temper, never get upset, worried, angry, fearful, anxious, nervous, etc.
What is the specific purpose in 10:5?
[15:85] We did not create the heavens and the earth, and everything between them, except for a specific purpose. The end of the world will come, so treat them with benign neglect.
[21:16] We did not create the heavens and the earth, and everything between them just for amusement.
[38:27] We did not create the heaven and the earth, and everything between them, in vain. Such is the thinking of those who disbelieve. Therefore, woe to those who disbelieve; they will suffer in Hell.
[44:38] We did not create the heavens and the earth, and everything between them, just to play.
[46:3] We did not create the heavens and the earth, and everything between them except for a specific purpose, and for a finite interim. Those who disbelieve are totally oblivious to the warnings given to them.
Why Were We Created
[11:118] Had your Lord willed, all the people would have been one congregation (of believers). But they will always dispute (the truth). [11:119] Only those blessed with mercy from your Lord (will not dispute the truth). This is why He created them.* The judgment of your Lord has already been issued: “I will fill Hell with jinns and humans, all together.”**
*11:119 The Most Merciful has created us on this earth to give us yet another chance to denounce our original crime and to be redeemed (see the Introduction and Appendix 7). **11:119 God does not put a single person in Hell; they choose and insist upon going to Hell.
The Purpose of Our Existence
[51:56] I did not create the jinns and the humans except to worship Me alone. [51:57] I need no provisions from them, nor do I need them to feed Me. [51:58] GOD is the Provider, the Possessor of all power, the Supreme.
[45:22] GOD created the heavens and the earth for a specific purpose, in order to pay each soul for whatever it earned, without the least injustice.*
*45:22 God granted us this life as a precious chance to redeem ourselves, denounce our ancient alliance with Satan, and rejoin God’s kingdom. See Introduction & Appendix 7.
