Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah!
What does Surah 2 Verse 26 mean?
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh,
The translation and meaning of the verse are as follows:
“Verily Allah is not shy to quote the example of even a mosquito or something more (or less). As for those who have Imaan, they know it is the truth from their Rabb. As for the Kuffaar, they say, “What does Allah intend with these examples (of what use are they?)?” (The reply to their disrespectful question is that) Allah causes many to be misguided by them (with these examples, Allah causes many people to stray from the truth because of their kufr) and guides many with them (because of their Imaan, Mu’mineen are rightly guided by these examples). Only the evil-doers (the Kuffaar) are misguided by them.
Only Allah knows best
