As-salaam wa-alaikum, brothers and sisters.
Today’s episode of 17 Verses is from Surah 17, Al-Isrâ or the Night Journey, verses 41-60. These verses posit that if any other Gods existed, they would have tried to dethrone the one God, Allah. Belief in the hereafter is mentioned as a necessary trait for understanding the Qur’an. Lastly, it is posited that invented Gods have no power to relieve people from distress and also gives God’s reasons for not sending the same signs or miracles to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as were sent to other Prophets.
