Tafseer Surah an-Nisa Ayah 87

None Has the Right to be Worshiped But Allah

Ayah 87 reminds us that there is no object worthy of worship other than Allah.

اللَّهُ لاَ إِلَـهَ إِلاَّ هُوَ

“Allah – there is no god except Him…”

informing that He is singled out as the sole God of all creation. So, it exhorts, believe in Him as the only object of our worship and whatever we do let that be with the intention of an act of worship or ibadah before Him.

He then says,

لَيَجْمَعَنَّكُمْ إِلَى يَوْمِ الْقِيَـمَةِ لاَ رَيْبَ فِيهِ

“…surely He will gather you on the Day of Resurrection, about which there is no doubt…”

He will gather everyone, those of the earlier generation and the later ones, on the Day of Qiyamah, the fateful Day of Resurrection, in which there is no doubt. That will be the Day when He will give everyone the return for whatever deeds he will come up with. Punishment or reward according to one’s actions.

Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala ends this ayah with the promise that Qiyamah will come and the news that there will be reward and punishment at that time is all true. This is true because this news of what will happen is given by Allah, and whose word can be truer than that of Allah?

وَمَنْ أَصْدَقُ مِنَ اللَّهِ حَدِيثاً

“…And who is more truthful than Allah in statement.”

meaning, no one utters more truthful statements than Allah, in His promise, warning, stories of the past and information of what is to come; there is no deity worthy of worship nor Lord except Him.
