Ayat 57- Surat Zariyat Considered. - Abu Hafsat - 06-22-2019

As-Salaam alaikum,




Ayat 57 of Surat Zariyat of the Holy Qur'an (51:57) reads:--




   "No sustenance do I require of them, nor do I require that




  they should feed Me."




This establishes the fact that Almighty Allah is free of needs and by definition beyond the concerns of whether man worships or serves Him or not. Man, however, for his/her own sake, needs to establish a relationship to Allah. This relationship is that of Abudiyyah (servitude)... as Allah Ta'ala points out in the Qur'an:--




     "I have only created jinns and men, that they may serve Me." (51:56)




Hidden, but discernible in this unique relationship of abject servitude, only to Allah, is the secret of the ultimate freedom of man from all other bondage(s). This servant of Allah, His sincere bondsman, is free of all earthly gods and goddesses... be they of power, wealth, beauty, race or color. We must serve Allah Ta'ala and turn to Him for guidance in all our endeavors..
