[25:0] In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
[25:1] Most blessed is the One who revealed the Statute Book to His servant, so he can serve as a warner to the whole world.
[25:2] The One to whom belongs all sovereignty of the heavens and the earth. He never had a son, nor does He have any partners in sovereignty. He created everything in exact measure; He precisely designed everything.*
[25:3] Yet, they set up beside Him gods who do not create anything—they themselves are created—and who possess no power to even harm or benefit themselves, nor do they possess any power to control life, or death, or resurrection.
*25:2 When we launch astronauts into space, we measure precisely the amount of food, water, oxygen, and other needs throughout the journey. Similarly, God has launched us into space—on board spaceship Earth—and He has designed all kinds of renewable provisions for us and other creatures, a perfect design. Think, for example, of the symbiotic relationship between us and the plants; we use the oxygen they produce in photosynthesis, while they use the carbon dioxide we produce in respiration.
What is a Statute Book?
[21:48] We gave Moses and Aaron the Statute Book, a beacon, and a reminder for the righteous.
[2:53] Recall that we gave Moses scripture and the statute book, that you may be guided.

God created everything in exact measure: laws, provisions, answers, etc.
[68:52] It is in fact a message to the world.
[15:21] There is nothing that we do not own infinite amounts thereof. But we send it down in precise measure.
[72:28] This is to ascertain that they have delivered their Lord’s messages. He is fully aware of what they have. He has counted the numbers of all things.
[25:50] We have distributed it among them in exact measure, that they may take heed. But most people insist upon disbelieving.
