035 – Al Faatir – The Originator

The chapter begins with an affirmation of Allah as the sole Creative Originator & Sustainer of creation. There is then a discussion of the deception of the world and shaytaan as the deceiver who makes evil deeds look good and enslaves the human being to the opinion of others. A reflection on creation and an assertion that human beings are not independent of Allah and no one will carry the burden of another.
The Prophet sent as a warner and bringer of good news is then highlighted followed by a contrast of Allah’s power to the idols that those who covered up the truth worshipped.
The concept of racism is annihilated with a reflection on colours.
The chapter ends with a comparison between those who follow guidance and those who defiantly reject it asserting that there will never be a deviation or alteration in the course of Allah.
