This is Allah (14) He Makes the Dead Land Alive
Many people do not know Allah. This series is an attempt to help them in order to know and acknowledge their Creator.
Verses 35:7-9 of the Noble Quran talks about the Outcome of Believers versus Disbelievers in the afterlife. Verse 35:8 asks: Is he, the evil doers like one whom Allah has guided? Verse 35:9 gives an example of the Resurrection; that is the revival of the dead land.
Verse 35:7 says:
Those who disbelieve in Muhammad and in the Quran, theirs will be a severe chastisement and an awful doom;
But those who believe and perform righteous deeds and do acts of obedience between them and their Lord, theirs will be forgiveness and a great reward, their sins will be forgiven in the life of this world and a great reward in Paradise.
This is a declaration of what fate will be for the adherents of Satan and what will be for his opponents respectively.
Verse 35:8 says:
Is he, the evil of whose deeds is made fair-seeming unto him by distortion, so that he deems it good,
is he whose constitutes the subject, the predicate of which is an omitted like one whom Allah has guided?
Allah verily sends away from His religion whoever deserves it
and He guides to His religion (whom He will) whoever deserves it
In other words, Indeed Allah leads astray whomever He will and guides whomever He will. So do not let your soul expire for their sake, for those to whom it has made [to seem] fair, out of sighings, by becoming anguished lest they do not believe. Indeed God is Knower of what they do, and He will requite them for it.
Lo! Allah is Aware of what they do in their state of disbelief of scheming in their meeting and treachery in order to kill Muhammad
Indeed Allah is Knower of what they do, and He will requite them for it.
Verse 35:9 says:
And it is Allah Who sends the winds and they raise a cloud; then He leads it) through rain (unto a dead land) wherein there is no plants (and He revives therewith) by means of the rain (the earth after its death) after its dryness and exposure to draught. (Such is the Resurrection) in the same way you will be quickened and raised from the graves.
In other words, Allah made seeds and grass grow in it: Such will be the Raising, that is, the Resurrection and the bringing [of the dead] back to life.
