Post by: mark on February 09, 2017, 01:13:05 PM
41. “Have you not seen that unto Allah glorifies whosoever is in the heavens and the earth, and the birds with wings outspread (in their flight)? Each one knows its own (mode of) prayer and praise. And Allah is Aware of what they do.”
42. “And unto Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and unto Allah is the ultimate return

Assalam alikum I was just wondering when it says (whosoever) 1. are these verses above only talking about living beings like humans jinns animals angles etc or 2. is it talking about non living beings as well like stars planets sun etc and if the answer is 2 then does that mean by verse 24:42 mean that the earth and stars and such be resurrected like us

Wa Alaikum As'salam,

Every creation, living or non-living, praises and worships Allah Almighty:

‏24:41 الم تر ان الله يسبح له من في السماوات والارض والطير صافات كل قد علم صلاته وتسبيحه والله عليم بما يفعلون

[024:041]  Seest thou not that it is God Whose praises all beings in the heavens and on earth do celebrate, and the birds (of the air) with wings outspread? Each one knows its own (mode of) prayer and praise. And God knows well all that they do.

The word "beings" is not there in the Arabic Noble Verse.  This is also further proven in many Noble Verses such as the following:

[041:011] (Then) He turned to the heaven. It was then (just) smoke. To it and the earth, He said, “Willing or not, eager or averse, (you are being ordered to) come into being!” They replied, “We come willingly!


Also, earth is both singular and plural in the Glorious Quran.  This had been proven from the Glorious Quran at:
