Quran 37 Verse 4 Explanation
For those looking for commentary to help with the understanding of Surah Saffat ayat 4, we’ve provided two Tafseer works below. The first is the tafseer of Abul Ala Maududi, the second is of Ibn Kathir.
(37:4) surely your God is One,
2. This is the truth to impress which an oath has been taken by the angels bearing the above-mentioned qualities. In other words, what is meant to be said is: The whole system of the universe which is functioning in the service of Allah, and all those manifestations of this universe which bring the evil consequences of deviation from the service of Allah before men, testify that the “Deity” of men is One and only One.”
The word “Ilah” applies to two meanings.
(1) The Deity who is actually being served and worshiped.
(2) The Deity who, in reality, is worthy of being served and worshiped.
Here, the word “Ilah” has been used in the second meaning, for, as far as the first meaning is concerned, men have adopted many other deities. That is why we have translated Ilahas the Real Deity.
The tafsir of Surah As-Saffat verse 4 by Ibn Kathir is unavailable here.
