English Translation of Al-Quran
.Surah As-Sajdah [The Prostration]
Ayat 27. Have they not seen how Allah drive water (rain clouds) to the dry land without any vegetation, and therewith bring forth crops providing food for their cattle and themselves? Will they not then see?
Tafseer of Surah Al Sajdah (The Prostration) Ayat 27. And do they not see that Allah do drive Rain to parched soil (bare of herbage), and produce therewith crops, providing food for their cattle and themselves? Have they not the vision? Again, as in the last verse, there is an easy transition from the physical to the spiritual. In physical nature there may be parched soil, which is to all intents and purposes dead. Allah sends rain, and the dead soil is converted into living land producing rich crops of fodder and corn, nuts and fruits, to satisfy the hunger of man and beast. So in the spiritual world. The dead man is revivified by Allah’s grace and mercy through His Revelation. He becomes not only an asset to himself but to his dependents and those around him. The verse begins with "do they not see?" (a wa lam yaraw), a physical act. It ends with "have they not the vision?" (afala yubsirun), a matter of spiritual insight. This is parallel to the two kinds of "hearing" or "listening".
