There are MANY ayatts of the Quran that I absolutely love, but I will keep it to the shortest one.
Surah Iklass-
”Say: He is One, upon which all things depend, He begets not nor is He begotten, and there none like unto Him.”
This is a very interesting surah. The outwardly meaning is fairly obvious, but to go a little deeper in understanding:
“Say:He is One” -this is not the numerical “1”, as in 1,2,3,4 as that word is “wahid”. Instead “ahad” is used here,it means One, as in all encompassing One, in the sense of Absolute Oneness of His Eternal Existence.
“Upon which all things depend” -the word “samad”is is used. Its a bit hard to directly translate to English, the best translation being “independent of anyone-All Perfect, but in Surah Hadid, Allah(SWT) tells us “ He is the First, the Last, the Outer, the Inner, and He is cognizant of all things”.
“He begets not nor is he begotten” Allah has not begotten anything in such a way as to have something extracted from him as in a child, neither is he part of something greater, such as when a woman “begets” and a child is born and the child becomes its own separate, independent being. Allah is not separate from His creation, nor has He come from some greater entity or thing for Him to have been “begotten”.
“And there is none like unto Him” - When we examine the previous lines in this Surah, we come to understand that Allah is “All emcompassing (First,Last, Outter,Inner, aware of all things) everything depends on Him, He is not part of something greater, nor is anything “a part” of Him.
IS there anything else that is like unto Him based on this understanding?
