Sura 77
Aya 23
فَقَدَرنا فَنِعمَ القادِرونَ

Muhammad Asad

Thus have We determined [the nature of man's creation]: and excellent indeed is Our power to determine [what is to be]!1
  • The process of man's coming into being (illustrated, for instance, in 23:12-14) clearly point to God's creative activity and, hence, to His existence. Consequently, lack of gratitude on man's part amounts to what the Qur'an describes as "giving the lie to the truth".
