Verse – 26 of  200, Section –3    (Part – 3)
  
Say: O Allah! Owner of Sovereignty! Thou givest sovereignty unto whom Thou wilt, and Thou withdrawest sovereignty from whom Thou wilt. Thou exaltest whom Thou wilt, and Thou abasest whom Thou wilt. In Thy hand is the good. Lo! Thou art Able to do all things.        
Qulillaa-humma  Maalikal-Mulki  tu’-til-Mulka  man-tashaaa-‘u  wa  tanzi-‘ul-Mulka  miman-tashaaa’.  Wa  tu-‘izzu  man-  tashaaa-‘u  wa  tuzillu  man-tashaaa’.  Bi-yadi-kal-Khayer.  ‘Innaka  ‘alaa  kulli  shay-‘in-Qadiir.            




Lesson
       
Maalikal-Mulki(Owner of Sovereignty), Allah Almighty has described about this virtue of His Ownership particularly for the purpose so that the human being should perceive about His Powers and Strength. The humankind should not forget the Real Owner
(Allah Almighty) in the intoxication of his temporary and transitory worldly power, influence and dignity. So that four days’ moving shadow may not make him careless from the commands of Supreme Commander (Allah Almighty).

This verse of Holy Qur’an has a specific Peculiarity. That is, “there is description about Perfect Power of Allah Almighty and utmost limit of inability and helplessness of the human being in the manner that nobody can deny”. It is the reason that our Muslim devotees use to tell their followers about this verse for repeating it as daily worship.  

If there is need to mention this verse in connection with the Christians’ body of delegates from Najraan (Syria), then we shall relate it as, “O Christian Scholars! You are proud upon the honor and sovereignty of the kings, understand it well that entire sovereign of all the world and Owner of the dignity is Allah Almighty. Every thing is in His Hand. He gives to whom He wills and withdraws from whom He wishes. Allah Almighty has shown practical demonstration of this reality to the entire world, while He made owner of the treasures of Roman and Persian sovereignty to an inferior and poor group (of newly Muslims). Then what is the material kingdom and honor?

Allah Almighty transferred last place of spiritual sovereignty and honor i.e. Prophet-hood from the children of Israel to the children of Ishmael. The words of this verse are taught to the Muslims in the form of supplication. And it explained that the persons who were poor, they will become owners of the sovereignty due to their faith, and who were kings, they will fell in disgrace due to their bad acts. The good (of all kinds) is In the Hand of Allah Almighty. He is Able to do all things.
