Quran 40 Verse 62 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Ghafir ayat 62, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(40:62) Allah (Who bestowed all these favours upon you) is your Lord, the Creator of everything. There is no god but He.[86] Whence are you, then, being led astray?[87]


86. That is, the alternation of the night and day has proved that Allah alone is your Creator as well as of everything else, and the great advantage and benefits that accrue from this alternation for your life, prove that He is your highly Beneficent Lord. After this, it automatically follows that He is your real Deity too. For, it would be entirely against reason and justice that your Creator and Provider should be Allah and your deities others.

87. That is, who is misleading you to think that those who are neither the creators nor providers should deserve to be worshiped by you.
