Quran 3 Verse 6 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Imran ayat 6, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(3:6) It is He Who fashions you in the wombs as He wills.[4] There is no God but He; the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.


4. This refers to two important facts. The first is that no being knows human nature as well as God does; it is thus imperative that man should depend on the guidance revealed by God, something man needs the most. The second is that the Being Who takes care of all of man’s requirements, major and minor, from the time of conception onwards, will not fail to provide guidance for man’s conduct in this life.
