7:172 When your Lord brought forth generations in succession from the Children of
Adam, and made them bear witness, “Am I not your Lord?” They said, “Yes, we bear
witness.” Thus, you cannot say on the Resurrection Day, “We were not aware of
this.” [Min Zuhoorihim = From their posterity = In succession = One generation
following another. The uninterrupted survival of mankind is a telling witness that
there is an Almighty Lord Who nourishes the Universe according to His Master Plan]
7:173 Nor can you say, “It was our forefathers before us who committed ‘Shirk’ and
we are only their descendants after them. Will you destroy us on account of those
who practiced falsehood?” [‘Shirk’ = Associating others with God. No one will bear
the load of another. 2:134, 39:7]
There is some confusion about the meaning of these verses. Some relate it to all souls being brought before Allah for this and later they were physically created.
