وَلَهُۥ مَا فِى ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ وَلَهُ ٱلدِّينُ وَاصِبًا ۚ أَفَغَيْرَ ٱللَّهِ تَتَّقُونَ

And to Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth, and to Him is [due] worship constantly. Then is it other than Allāh that you fear?

Explanatory Note

God’s oneness must be a concept of complete and perfect clarity in the mind of every believer. God, the only deity, is also the One to whom everything belongs: “His is all that is in the heavens and the earth.” (Verse 52) All true faith also belongs to Him:

“To Him alone submission is always due.” (Verse 52)

It is a continuous process, ever since there was a faith and people to believe in it. Such belief means submission, and no faith is true unless it is based on submission to Him.

7. Period of Revelation

[ edit ]

The following internal evidence shows that this Surah was revealed during the last Makkan stage of Prophethood:

1.         V. 41 clearly shows that persecution had forced some Muslims to emigrate to Abyssinia before the revelation of this Surah.
