Tafsir of Surah Mulk Ayat 17 – By Abul Ala Maududi

(67:17) Do you feel secure that He Who is in the heaven will not let loose upon you a storm of stones? [26]


26. The object is to impress this: Your very survival and well-being on the earth are at all times dependent upon Allah Almighty’s grace and bounty: you are not strutting about on this earth at will by your own power: you are under obligation only to Allah’s protection for each moment of your life that you are passing here, otherwise Allah at any moment may cause such an earthquake to occur as may make this very earth to become your grave instead of the cradle that it is, or may cause a windstorm to blow razing all your towns and settlements to the ground.
