Juz 7: the proof is in the heart

This article is also available in: Italiano

In the Qur’an, God does not try in any way to impose his will on his subject, these two steps go exactly in that direction. It would not be difficult to believe such an evident test, the true believer, however, is the one who recognizes his Lord and submits himself to him, without any need for shows of any kind.

And we would have dressed him as they dress

The 2 verses refer to one of the numerous attempts by the polytheists to delegitimize the Quranic Revelation, this time demanding proof that does not give rise to doubts. Precisely for this reason they make a very particular request: that an angel reveal the message. Precisely the divine response then falls to upset pagan beliefs, with an incredibly effective verse: “And if we had designated an angel, we would have given him human appearance and we would have dressed him as they dress”. A sentence that really leaves no room for interpretation.

Angel
Juz 7, Surat Al An’am, vv.8-9

In the Qur’an, God does not try in any way to impose his will on his subject, these two steps go exactly in that direction. It would not be difficult to believe such an evident test, the true believer, however, is the one who recognizes his Lord and submits himself to him, without any need for shows of any kind. On the other hand, the biblical and Quranic God often enjoys putting ourselves before the impossible, only to then transform it into certainty. Just think of Moses, the stammering leader of the Jewish people, of Jesus, from the “unknown” father or even banal to Muhammad, the one who reveals the “Word of Allah” despite being illiterate. Proofs for the believer and absurdities for the rest of the world.
