The Meaning of al-Ikhlas


The Meaning of al-Ikhlas

{ قُلْ هُوَ ٱللَّهُ أَحَدٌ }

And from his narration on the authority of Ibn ‘Abbas that he said regarding the interpretation of Allah’s saying (Say: He is Allah, the One!): ‘(Say: He is Allah, the One!) the people of Quraysh asked the Prophet (pbuh): “O Muhammad! Describe for us your Lord; is He made of gold or silver?” And so Allah revealed this surah to describe His attributes and traits, saying: say to Quraysh, O Muhammad: He is Allah, the One, He has no son or partner.
 
{ ٱللَّهُ ٱلصَّمَدُ }

(Allah, the eternally Besought of all!) the Master whose glory is at its peak and for Whom all created beings are in need; it is also said that (al-Samad) means: He Who does not eat or drink; it is also said that this means: He Who does not have an interior; it is also said that this means: the Everlasting; and it is also said this means: the Sufficient; and it is also said this means: He who does not have an entrance or exit.
 
{ لَمْ يَلِدْ وَلَمْ يُولَدْ }

And it is also said that al-Samad means:(He begetteth not nor was begotten) He says: He did not inherit and will not be inherited; and it is also said this means: He does not have a son who will inherit His dominion and He was not begotten, which means that He did not inherit His dominion.
 
{ وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَّهُ كُفُواً أَحَدٌ }

(And there is none comparable unto Him) He says: He does not have an opposite, peer, or equal nor anyone who may resemble or begin to resemble Him; and it is also said this means: He does not have any co-equal who would compete with Him about dominion and sovereignty’.
