SECTION ONE
PRAISE IS TO ALLAHSayingimplies following:-
1.
Declaring that praise of any nature and in any context owes its legitimacy to Allahand Allah alone.
2.
Admitting without any uncertainties that all that is there in the heavens, on the earthand in between them belongs to Allah Almighty.
3.
Confirming with absolute conviction that all gains are from Allah and all losses aredue to own misdoings.

6.
Reposing complete confidence with absolute satisfaction that Allah’s handling of allmatters and at all times is of the perfectly good order in all walks of one’s life.7.Making it known to all that praise is prelude to establishing a gainful communicationwith everyone in this life more so with Allah Almighty.We now go over those verses contained in the Holly Qur’an that have a mention of “Praise is to Allah”. This will help in grasping the meanings, the implications and the messagethat our Creator desires for us in these words. To begin with we have the second verse of thefirst Surah of the Qur’an that is the topic of this chapter. Eighteen more verses would bestudied before summarising the conclusions from these.

from clay, and then decreed a stated term (for you). And there is in His Presence another determined term;yet ye doubt within yourselves! And He is Allah in the heavens and on earth. He knoweth what ye hide,and what ye reveal, and He knoweth the (recompense) which ye earn (by your deeds). 6:1-3- - - - -5-6Praise be to Allah, Who created (out of nothing) the heavens and the earth, Who made theangels messengers with wings, two, or three, or four (pairs): He adds to Creation as He pleases: for Allahhas power over all things. What Allah out of His Mercy doth bestow on mankind there is none canwithhold: what He doth withhold, there is none can grant, apart from Him: and He is the Exalted in Power,Full of Wisdom. 35:1-2- - - - -7-8Praise be to Allah, Who hath sent to His Servant the Book, and hath allowed therein noCrookedness: (He hath made it) Straight (and Clear) in order that He may warn (the godless) of a terriblePunishment from Him, and that He may give Glad Tidings to the Believers who work righteous deeds, thatthey shall have a goodly Reward, 18:1-2- - - - -9-10Praise be to Allah, to Whom belong all things in the heavens and on earth: to Him be Praise inthe Hereafter: and He is Full of Wisdom, acquainted with all things.
