Dear Brother / Sister,
"And if all the trees on earth were pens and the Ocean (were ink), with seven Oceans behind it to add to its (supply) yet would not the Words of Allah be exhausted (in the writing): for Allah is Exalted in power, Full of Wisdom." (Luqman, 31/27)
It is stated in the verse above that if the seas were ink in order to write the words of Allah, the ink would run out before the words of Allah were written and that even if the seas were created again, it would not be enough to write the words of Allah; it is also stated that the signs of His existence and majesty are too many to count.
What is meant by "Allah's words" is all of the creatures that He created and the beings in His knowledge, or the words that praise Him. There are so many signs of Allah's knowledge and majesty that it would not be enough to write them even if the seas were ink. His praise does not run out by writing. Numbers are not enough to express the amount of the beings He created.
