Defiant Devils

Qur'aanic Verse 37:7:


7. Wahifthan min kulli shaytanin maridin


7. And We have made it (the sky of this world) a safeguard against every defiant devil.3

Study Note:

3. Verse 2:29 speaks of seven heavens (skies). And Verse 67:3 tells us that these seven heavens are one above another. The sky that we see is the sky of this world. We cannot see the other six skies above this sky. Those six skies are till now beyond human (scientific) knowledge. Man boasts of technological advances that have enabled him to travel into space and even land on the moon. The limited knowledge that Allah Almighty has released to him has made man so proud that he has now forgotten his Creator. Some so-called scientists have gone to the extent of denying His existence altogether. Darwin had proposed his theory of evolution to counter the belief in Creation. Darwin’s modern counterparts like Stephen Hawkins see no need for God in running the universe. Scientist aware of the marvels of Nature ought to be the foremost in recognizing the Almighty Power behind the perfect Creation all around us. And yet, under the satanic influence, they foolishly deny that very Power that gave them their intelligence. Such defiant devils, whether in human form or as jinns, shall ever be confined to the limits of ‘the sky of the world’ and shall never be able to go to the skies beyond to unearth the secrets of Creation.
