Hadith Explanation

The Size Of The Universe

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “The universe compared to Allah’s kursi (footrest) is like a ring in a desert. And Allah’s kursi compared to His ursh (throne) is like a ring in a desert.” [Ibn Hibban, Ibn Abi Hatim]

The size of our planet earth compared to the size of the universe is like a grain of sand compared to the size of the earth. Now read again how the size of the universe compares to Allah’s kursi and His ursh!

When we consider Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) as our Creator and the Creator and Maintainer of the entire universe, when we consider revelation to have come from Him, of what value is our opinion and intellect against His? Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) as our Creator knows our nature best and has graciously informed us which laws are ideal for us, so we can live by Divine Guidance and avoid the pain of trial and error.

When mines are planted, mine maps are made. Mine maps help the army that has the mine map to safely cross the mine field themselves. Allah (subhana wa ta'ala) has sent us the Quran as a mine map, so that we may safely cross the mine field of life. But our ignorance and arrogance are such, that we wish to negotiate this mine field with no regard to the mine map!
