In these series of articles we are working on Quranic commentary (al tafsir) in previous part we started by chapter 112of holy Quran. Here we want to continue with 3 verses of chapter 2 the longest chapter of the holy Quran “the cow” (Baqareh). These tree verses (255-256-257) are very famous and are known as Ayat Alkorsi. Here are these three holy verses:
Allah! There is no deity except Him. The Living, the Eternal.
Slumber does not overtake him, nor does sleep.
What the Heavens hold and what Earth holds (belongs) to Him. Who is there to intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what lies before them and what’s behind them. While they embrace nothing of His Knowledge except whatever He may wish. His Seat extends far over Heaven and Earth; preserving them both does not overburden Him. He is the Sublime the Almighty*
There should be no compulsion in the religion .Normal behavior stands out clearly from error; so anyone who rejects the Arrogant ones and believers in Allah has grasped the Firmest Handle which will never break. Allah is Alert and Aware. *
Allah is the Patron of those who believe. He brings them out of darkness into Light, while those who disbelieve have the arrogant ones for the patrons; they will lead them out of Light in to the darkness. Those are inmates of the Fire; they shall remain there.
