Interpretation of His Saying (مِن رُّوحِنَا)and His Saying (مِن رُّوحِى)

Let it be known that Allah the Exalted is the Creator of the soul and the body, so He is not a soul or a body. Despite that, Allah attributed to Himself the soul of ^Isa [Jesus] with the meaning of ownership and honor, not with the meaning of [the soul] being a part of [Him] in His Saying:

﴿مِن رُّوحِنَا﴾

[which means] “…from Our soul.” Likewise, in reference to Adam, is the Saying of Allah the Exalted:

﴿مِن رُّوحِى﴾

[which means] “…from My soul.”

So the meaning of the Saying of Allah:

﴿فَنَفَخنَا فِيهِ مِن رُّوحِنَا﴾

[which literally translates as] “We blew Our soul into him,” is “We ordered Jibril to blow into Mary the soul which is owned by and honorable to Us.”  This is because the souls are of two divisions, honorable souls and wicked souls. The souls of the Prophets are from the first category, and attributing the soul of Jesus and the soul of Adam to Himself is an attribution of ownership and honor. Whoever believes that Allah the Exalted is a soul blasphemes. The soul is created; Allah is Exalted from that.

[This is] like the Saying of Allah the Exalted in reference to the Ka^bah:


[which means] “My House.” It is an attribution of ownership because of honor. It is not an Attribute of Allah or relation between Allah and that thing, because of the impossibility of touching or contact between Allah and the Ka^bah.

Likewise is the Saying of Allah:

﴿رَبُّ العَرشِ﴾

[which means] “The Lord of the ^Arsh.” It is not for other than proving that Allah is the Creator of the ^Arsh, which is the largest of creations. It is not that the ^Arsh has a relation to Allah by Him sitting upon it or being parallel to it without sitting on it.  It does not mean that Allah is sitting on His^Arsh with contact and it does not mean Allah is parallel to the ^Arsh with the existence of space between Allah and the ^Arsh, whether that space was estimated as vast or little. All of that is impossible to attribute to Allah.

The merit of the ^Arsh is that it is the Ka^bah for the Angels, who circle it, just as the Ka^bah itself is meritorious by the believers circling it. Also among the special merits of the ^Arsh is that Allah was never disobeyed there, because those who surround the ^Arsh are all honorable slaves. They do not disobey Allah for a blink of an eye.

Whoever believed that Allah Created the ^Arsh to sit on it, he has likened Allah to the kings who make big seats to sit upon, and whoever believes that does not know Allah. Whoever believes that Allah is attributed with contact has blasphemed, because this is impossible to be an Attribute of Allah the Exalted.
