Sahih International
And it is He who begins creation; then He repeats it, and that is [even] easier for Him. To Him belongs the highest attribute in the heavens and earth. And He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.

It is He Who begins (the process of) creation; then repeats it; and for Him it is most easy. To Him belongs the loftiest similitude (we can think of) in the heavens and the earth: for He is Exalted in Might, full of wisdom.

Abul Ala Maududi
It is He Who creates in the first instance and it is He Who will repeat the creation, and that is easier for Him. His is the loftiest attribute in the heavens and the earth. He is the Most Mighty, the Most Wise.

Muhsin Khan
And He it is Who originates the creation, then will repeat it (after it has been perished), and this is easier for Him.

Quran 30 Verse 27 Explanation

For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Ar-Rum ayat 27, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.

Ala-Maududi

(30:27) It is He Who creates in the first instance and it is He Who will repeat the creation, and that is easier for Him.[38] His is the loftiest attribute in the heavens and the earth. He is the Most Mighty, the Most Wise.


38. That is, if it was not difficult for Him to create you in the first instance, how can it be difficult for Him to recreate you? Your first creation was not difficult for Him because your present existence is a living proof of that. Now it is simple commonsense that the re-making of a thing should be relatively easier for the one who made it the first time.
