When they hear this Statement of Wickedness Coming from the Children of Aadam




Allaah said;

تَكَادُ السَّمَـوَتُ يَتَفَطَّرْنَ مِنْهُ وَتَنشَقُّ الاٌّرْضُ وَتَخِرُّ الْجِبَالُ هَدّاً – أَن دَعَوْا لِلرَّحْمَـنِ وَلَداً

“Whereby the heavens are almost torn, and the earth is split asunder, and the mountains Hadda (fall in ruins), that they ascribe a son to the Most Gracious… ”

–  That is, out of their (heavens, earth, mountains) high esteem for Allaah, when they hear this statement of wickedness coming from the Children of Aadam. The reason for this is that these are creatures of Allaah and they are established upon His Tawheed and the fact that there is no deity worthy of worship in truth except Him. He has no partners, no peer, no child, no mate and no coequal. Rather, He is the One, Self-Sufficient Master, Whom all creatures are in need of. Ibn Jareer reported that Ibn `Abbaas said concerning Allaah’s statement;

تَكَادُ السَّمَـوَتُ يَتَفَطَّرْنَ مِنْهُ وَتَنشَقُّ الاٌّرْضُ وَتَخِرُّ الْجِبَالُ هَدّاً – أَن دَعَوْا لِلرَّحْمَـنِ وَلَداً

“Whereby the heavens are almost torn, and the earth is split asunder, and the mountains Hadda (fall in ruins), that they ascribe a son to the Most Gracious…”

Verily, the heavens, the earth, the mountains and all creatures — except for humans and Jinns — are frightened by the associating of partners with Allaah. Creation will almost cease existing before the association of partners with Allaah, due to His Greatness. Just as the idolator does not benefit by his good deeds because of associating partners with Allaah, we hope that Allaah would forgive the sins of those who believed in His absolute Oneness by worshipping Him alone.
