The Details of the Question

What is meant by the phrase "dwells in the night and day" mentioned in verse 13 of the chapter of al-Anam?

The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

The chapter of al-Anam, verse 13

"To him belongeth all that dwelleth (or lurketh) in the night and the day. For he is the one who heareth and knoweth all things."

The domination of Allah is confirmed in the verse above; it is stated that along with what is in the skies and the world, whatever dwells in the night and day, that is, every being that has time is from the land of Allah and that Allah knows every being, everything that happens, whether in the darkness of the night or the brightness of the day. (see Diyanet Tefsiri, Kur’an Yolu, Diyanet İşleri Başkanlığı Yayınları: II/306)
