and splits asunder
1. Lessons/Guidance/Reflections/Gems[ edit ]
The very sound of these verses and their rhythm add to the air of anger at this false claim. In fact the whole universe rejects this claim most vehemently. It shudders and quivers with abhorrence as it hears this falsehood against God Almighty. It is a reaction similar to that of a person who feels that his very integrity is attacked, or that the honesty of someone he loves is assailed. The shudder is common to the heavens, the earth and the mountains. In their beat, the words here show the movement of a violent quake.
As soon as the offensive word is uttered, “They say: The Most Merciful has taken to Himself a son,” the expression of horror immediately follows: “Indeed you have said a most monstrous falsehood.” (Verse 89) Everything that is settled and stable is thus shaken. The whole universe is in anger at this false allegation against God, the Creator. The statement is shocking to everything in nature.
The universe is created and functions on the basis of the basic principle of God’s oneness: “Indeed you have said a most monstrous falsehood, at which the heavens might be rent into fragments, and the earth be split asunder, and the mountains fall down in ruins! " (Verses 89-90)
