Caution: Translations of Quran and Ḥadīth may lead to possible misapplications and misinterpretations. This site is intended for students of sacred knowledge that are proficient in comprehending classical Arabic and have a strong foundation in Islamic sciences. Also note that religious injunctions rely on several aspects beyond what one may glean through reading individual aḥādīth.

So observe the effects of the mercy of Allah - how He gives life to the earth after its lifelessness. Indeed, that ˹same one˺ will give life to the dead, and He is over all things competent.  

So behold the effects (a variant reading has ˹singular˺ athar, ‘the effect’) of God's mercy, that is, His grace in giving ˹them˺ rain, how He revives the earth after it has died, ˹after˺ it has dried out, so that it produces vegetation ˹again˺. Surely He is the Reviver of the dead and He has power over all things.

فَانْظُرْ إِلَىٰ آثَارِ رَحْمَتِ اللَّهِ كَيْفَ يُحْيِي الْأَرْضَ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهَا ۚ إِنَّ ذَٰلِكَ لَمُحْيِي الْمَوْتَىٰ ۖ وَهُوَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ  

{فانظر إلى أثر} وفي قراءة آثار {رحمة الله} أي نعمته بالمطر {كيف يحيي الأرض بعد موتها} أي يبسها بأن تنبت {إن ذلك لمحيي الموتى وهو على كل شيءٍ قدير}.
