Take A Hike!

In the Name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful

>How can mountains both be able to "refuse the trust" and "feel fear" as Sura >33:72 says?

"Verily, WE have offered the trust of the Divine Law to the heavens and the earth and the mountains, but they refused to bear it and were afraid of it. But man bore it. Indeed, he is capable of being unjust to, and neglectful of, himself." (Chapter 33 verse 73)

This verse has presented Commentators of the Quran with some difficulty. In view of different signification’s of the words used, the verse seems to be susceptible of the following interpretations:

Taking the word (hml) as meaning to accept, and (Imanat) as signifying the trust of man’s love of God, the verse would mean that a great spiritual destiny awaited man. He was made God’s vicergent on earth (2:31). He was gifted with the great capacities and powers to assimilate and manifest in his person Divine attributes and to become the image of his Creator. This was indeed a great trust which man, alone of all the universe, was found capable of discharging, other beings and things--the angels, the heavens, the earth and the mountains--being quite unequal to the task. They refused, as it were, to bear it. Man accepted the responsibility because he alone could discharge, as he had been endowed with great natural qualities. He was capable of being (zalooma) (unjust to him self) and (jahoola) (neglectful of himself) i.e., he could be unjust to himself in the sense that he could bear any hardship and undergo any sacrifice for the sake of his Creator, and he was capable of being neglectful in the sense that in the discharge of his great and sacred trust he could be neglectful of his own interest and destre for a life of ease and comfort.

And Allah Knows Best

Quran's STUNNING Divine Miracles: [1]

Allah Almighty also promised in several Divine Prophecies that He will show the Glorious Quran's Miracles to mankind:

1-  The root letters for "message" and all of its derivatives occur 513 times throughout the Glorious Quran.  Yet, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone, the Prophets' and Messengers' actual names (Muhammad, Moses, Noah, Abraham, Lot etc....) were also all mentioned 513 times in the Glorious Quran.  The detailed breakdown of all of this is thoroughly listed here.  This Miracle is covered in 100s (hundreds) of Noble Verses.

2-  Allah Almighty said that Prophet Noah lived for 950 years.  Yet, all Praise and Glory are due to Allah Almighty Alone, the entire Noble Surah (chapter Noah) is exactly written in 950 Letters.  You can thoroughly see the accurate count in the scanned images.

Coincidence?  See 1,000s of examples [1].  Quran's Stunning Numerical & Scientific Miracles.

Islam also thoroughly rejects as man-made lies the Trinity and Crucifixion [2].  Jesus was also thoroughly called
slave of GOD [1] in both the OT and NT.
