English Translation of Al-Quran
.Surah As-Sajdah [The Prostration]
Ayat 09. Then Allah fashioned him (from Semen) in due proportion, and breathed into him the soul (created by Allah for that person), and Allah gave you hearing (ears), sight (eyes) and hearts. Little is the thanks you give!
Tafseer of Surah Al Sajdah (The Prostration) Ayat 9. But He fashioned him in due proportion, and breathed into him something of His spirit. And He gave you (the faculties of) hearing and sight and feeling (and understanding): little thanks do ye give! The third stage the third stage is indicated by "fashioned him in due proportion". Cf. 15:29 . After the fertilization of the ovum by the sperm, an individual life conies into existence, and it is gradually fashioned into shape; its limbs are formed; its animal life begins to function; all the beautiful adaptations come into play. The fourth stage here mentioned is that of distinctive Man, into whom Allah’s spirit is breathed. Then he rises higher than animals. As a complete man he gets the higher faculties. The five animal senses I understand to be included in the third stage. But in the fourth stage he rises higher and is addressed in the second person, "you," instead of the third person "him". He has now the spiritual counterpart of hearing (i.e., the capacity to hear Allah’s Message) and seeing (i.e., the inner vision), and feeling the nobler heights of love and understanding the bearings of the inner life (both typified by the Heart). Yet with all these gifts, what thanks does unregenerate or corrupted man give to Allah? (Cf. 23:12-14 and 32:7-9)
