Quran: Fully Detailed
[7:52] We have given them a scripture that is fully detailed, with knowledge, guidance, and mercy for the people who believe.
[7:53] Are they waiting until all (prophecies) are fulfilled? The day such fulfillment comes to pass, those who disregarded it in the past will say, “The messengers of our Lord have brought the truth. Are there any intercessors to intercede on our behalf? Would you send us back, so that we change our behavior, and do better works than what we did?” They have lost their souls, and their own innovations have caused their doom.
[7:54] Your Lord is the one GOD, who created the heavens and the earth in six days,* then assumed all authority. The night overtakes the day, as it pursues it persistently, and the sun, the moon, and the stars are committed to serve by His command. Absolutely, He controls all creation and all commands. Most Exalted is GOD, Lord of the universe.
*7:54 The six days of creation are allegorical; they serve as a yardstick to let us know the relative complexity of our infinitesimal planet Earth – it was created in “4 days” (see 41:10).
[7:55] You shall worship your Lord publicly and privately; He does not love the transgressors.
[7:56] Do not corrupt the earth after it has been set straight, and worship Him out of reverence, and out of hope. Surely, GOD’s mercy is attainable by the righteous.
[7:57] He is the One who sends the wind with good omen, as a mercy from His hands. Once they gather heavy clouds, we drive them to dead lands, and send down water therefrom, to produce with it all kinds of fruits. We thus resurrect the dead, that you may take heed.
[7:58] The good land readily produces its plants by the leave of its Lord, while the bad land barely produces anything useful. We thus explain the revelations for people who are appreciative.
In relation to 7:52
This life is an open book test. The Quran contains all the answers to our salvation and we have a whole life to take the tests.
How do we know that we passed or failed a test?
God provided us with all the words we need for our salvation in this Quran.
The Quran: Everything We Need
[18:109] Say, “If the ocean were ink for the words of my Lord, the ocean would run out, before the words of my Lord run out, even if we double the ink supply.”
These Are All the Words We Need
[31:27] If all the trees on earth were made into pens, and the ocean supplied the ink, augmented by seven more oceans, the words of GOD would not run out. GOD is Almighty, Most Wise.
[16:89] The day will come when we will raise from every community a witness from among them, and bring you as the witness of these people. We have revealed to you this book to provide explanations for everything, and guidance, and mercy, and good news for the submitters.
[41:3] A scripture whose verses provide the complete details, in an Arabic Quran, for people who know.
Abusing God’s Provisions
[6:136] They even set aside a share of GOD’s provisions of crops and livestock, saying, “This share belongs to GOD,” according to their claims, “and this share belongs to our idols.” However, what was set aside for their idols never reached GOD, while the share they set aside for GOD invariably went to their idols. Miserable indeed is their judgment.
In relation to 7:53
By God’s Grace
[7:43] We will remove all jealousy from their hearts. Rivers will flow beneath them, and they will say, “GOD be praised for guiding us. We could not possibly be guided, if it were not that GOD has guided us. The messengers of our Lord did bring the truth.” They will be called: “This is your Paradise. You have inherited it, in return for your works.”
[6:28] As a matter of fact, (they only say this because) their secrets have been exposed. If they go back, they will commit exactly the same crimes.* They are liars.
We have to constantly strive to stay in God’s light: 7:54
[50:38] We have created the heavens and the earth, and everything between them in six days, and no fatigue touched us.
If you count the chapters and verses that talk about the “six days” of creation you get 361 = 19 x 19
7:54, 10:3, 11:7, 25:59, 32:4, 50:38, 57:4
Six is a perfect number: 1x2x3 = 6 & 1+2+3 = 6
[41:9] Say, “You disbelieve in the One who created the earth in two days,* and you set up idols to rank with Him, though He is Lord of the universe.” [41:10] He placed on it stabilizers (mountains), made it productive, and He calculated its provisions in four days, to satisfy the needs of all its inhabitants. [41:11] Then He turned to the sky, when it was still gas, and said to it, and to the earth, “Come into existence, willingly or unwillingly.” They said, “We come willingly.” [41:12] Thus, He* completed the seven universes in two days, and set up the laws for every universe. And we* adorned the lowest universe with lamps, and placed guards around it. Such is the design of the Almighty, the Omniscient.
Footnote: *41:9-10 The “days” of creation represent a yardstick. Thus, the physical universe was created in two days, while the calculation of provisions for all the creatures on earth required four. This also teaches us that there is life only on this planet Earth.
In relation to 7:55 how is someone a transgressor if they don’t follow this verse by worshiping publicly?
If we look at 7:205 I think the definition of worship is broader than just Salat.
[7:205] You shall remember your Lord within yourself, publicly, privately, and quietly, day and night; do not be unaware.*
*7:205 Your god is whoever or whatever occupies your mind most of the day. This explains the fact that most of those who believe in God are destined for Hell (See 12:106, 23:84-90, and Appendix 27).
How does someone worship God publicly in an oppressive society or community?
God never burdens a soul beyond a person’s means. If we can immigrate out of that situation that should be our long term goal.
Lip Service Does Not Count
[16:106] Those who disbelieve in GOD, after having acquired faith, and become fully content with disbelief, have incurred wrath from GOD. The only ones to be excused are those who are forced to profess disbelief, while their hearts are full of faith.*
Choose Your Friends Carefully
[3:28] The believers never ally themselves with the disbelievers, instead of the believers. Whoever does this is exiled from GOD. Exempted are those who are forced to do this to avoid persecution. GOD alerts you that you shall reverence Him alone. To GOD is the ultimate destiny.
In 7:58 it talks about the good land and the bad land what does it mean that “We thus explain the revelations”?
Whatever good we do is represented in our harvest. The people’s belief can be reflected in their actions. Our actions are the fruits of our works.
This verse reflects people who corrupt the religion
Truth vs Falsehood
[14:24] Do you not see that GOD has cited the example of the good word as a good tree whose root is firmly fixed, and its branches are high in the sky? [14:25] It produces its crop every season, as designed by its Lord. GOD thus cites the examples for the people, that they may take heed. [14:26] And the example of the bad word is that of a bad tree chopped at the soil level; it has no roots to keep it standing. [14:27] GOD strengthens those who believe with the proven word, in this life and in the Hereafter. And GOD sends the transgressors astray. Everything is in accordance with GOD’s will.
[10:82] GOD establishes the truth with His words, despite the criminals.
Mathematics: The Ultimate Proof*
[6:157] Nor can you say, “If only a scripture could come down to us, we would be better guided than they.” A proven scripture has now come to you from your Lord, and a beacon, and a mercy. Now, who is more evil than one who rejects these proofs from GOD, and disregards them? We will commit those who disregard our proofs to the worst retribution for their heedlessness.
In 7:58 why is this an example for people who are appreciative?
When we are appreciative we see the value. Someone who is unappreciative does not see the value in being righteous and therefore does not understand the reward that is being accumulated through one’s good deeds.
The Disbelievers Unappreciative
[23:62] We never burden any soul beyond its means, and we keep a record that utters the truth. No one will suffer injustice. [23:63] Because their minds are oblivious to this, they commit works that do not conform with this; their works are evil. [23:64] Then, when we requite their leaders with retribution, they complain.
