The Handiwork Of The God Of Grace

Maulana Abul Kalam AzadThe Tarjuman al-Qur’an1968

‘The handiwork of the God of Grace’ is the term used here. Everything, the Qur’an points out, is the creation of one who is not merely a creator but a creator who at the same time is God of Grace, of mercy and that where mercy is at work, there shall dwell beauty and perfection.

“(Blessed be He) Who hath created seven heavens one above another. No defect canst thou see in the handiwork of the God of Grace. Repeat thy gaze: seest thou a single flaw? Then twice more repeat thy gaze: thy gaze will return to thee dulled and weary.”
