In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.

Continuation of Chapter 34 Saba' ( )
(Saba)



In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.
34:21
But he had no authority over them except that We might test the man who believes in the Hereafter from him who is in doubt concerning it: and thy Lord doth watch over all things.
  • Might test: the word in the original is might know. It is not that Allah does not know all. Why does He want to test? It is in order to help us subjectively, to train our will, to put us definitely the question, "Will you obey Allah or other than Allah?" Cf. n. 467 to iii. 154.
