Ayat Reflection: No human can do that…

‎يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَوْفُوا بِالْعُقُودِ أُحِلَّتْ لَكُم بَهِيمَةُ الْأَنْعَامِ إِلَّا مَا يُتْلَىٰ عَلَيْكُمْ غَيْرَ مُحِلِّي الصَّيْدِ وَأَنتُمْ حُرُمٌ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يَحْكُمُ مَا يُرِيدُ

O you who believe! Fulfill (your) obligations. Lawful to you (for food) are all the beasts of cattle except that which will be announced to you (herein), game (also) being unlawful when you assume Ihram for Hajj or ‘Umrah (pilgrimage). Verily, Allah commands that which He wills. 5:1

‎وحكى النقاش أن أصحاب الكِندِيّ قالوا له: أيها الحكيم ٱعمل لنا مثل هذا القرآن فقال: نعم! أعمل مثل بعضه؛ فٱحتجب أياماً كثيرة ثم خرج فقال: والله ما أقدر ولا يطيق هذا أحد؛ إني فتحت المصحف فخرجت سورة «المائدة» فنظرت فإذا هو قد نطق بالوفاء ونهى عن النكث، وحلل تحليلاً عامّا، ثم ٱستثنى ٱستثناء بعد ٱستثناء، ثم أخبر عن قدرته وحكمته في سطرين، ولا يقدر أحد أن يأتي بهذا إلا في أجلاد.

Naqqash has reported that once al Kindi (the renowned Muslim philosopher of the 3rd century) was asked by some people: “Wise man. Why do you not produce for us something equal to the Qur’an.” He said he would and shut himself up in his house for several days. He came out to say: “By God! I can not. I came across the first verse of al Ma’idah. It advised to keep the pledges, ordered a thing, then stated an exception, and then an exception over the exception, then described Allah’s power and will: all in a line. No human could have done it.” (Al Qurtubi)

If someone said to us come and I will show how the red sea parts we will be so excited and rush to see it and experience it, yet we a have the ultimate and enduring miracle on our shelves yet don’t see it.
