Sura 17
Aya 44
تُسَبِّحُ لَهُ السَّماواتُ السَّبعُ وَالأَرضُ وَمَن فيهِنَّ ۚ وَإِن مِن شَيءٍ إِلّا يُسَبِّحُ بِحَمدِهِ وَلٰكِن لا تَفقَهونَ تَسبيحَهُم ۗ إِنَّهُ كانَ حَليمًا غَفورًا

Yusuf Ali

The seven heavens and the earth, and all beings therein, declare His glory:1 there is not a thing but celebrates His praise; And yet ye understand not how they declare His glory! Verily He is Oft-Forbear, Most Forgiving!
  • All Creation, animate and inanimate, sings God’s praises and celebrates His glory-animate, with consciousness, and inanimate, in the evidence which it furnishes of the unity and glory of God. All Nature bears witness to His power, wisdom, and goodness. It is only “ye” i.e., those who reject the whole trend of your nature and deny Faith simply because ye have been given a limited amount of choice and free will-it is only such as “ye that understand not what every other creature understands and proclaims with joy and pride. What must be your degradation! And yet God bears with you and forgives you! Such is His goodness! (R).
