Can you please explain the basic meaning of the Ayah below?
Surah 39 Ayah 4:
“Had Allah willed to take a child, He would have chosen whom He willed out of those whom He created. Glory to Him (He is above such things).”
In English grammar we call the above sentence the third type of conditional sentences, which means the ‘main clause’ is impossible because of the ‘if clause’. This is like saying: “If I had found her address, I would have sent her an invitation.” That means that it was impossible for me to send her an invitation because I did not find her address. So, the message of the Ayah is to negate the possibility of any child for God, thus He says: Glory to Him.
