The Amanah


Question :
What does this verse mean:
Truly We did offer Al-Amanah to the heavens and the earth, and the mountains, but they declined to bear it and were afraid of it. But man bore it. Verily, he was unjust and ignorant.
"Truly We did offer Al-Amanah to the heavens and the earth, and the mountains, but they declined to bear it and were afraid of it. But man bore it. Verily, he was unjust and ignorant."
Al-Ahzab 33: 72.

Answer :
Amanah here means the responsibilities. Allah Almighty offered this responsibilities, the orders, the prohibitions, the rewards for them, and the punishment for not following them to those creatures, but they refused and were afraid to bear it, fearing that they would be incapable of bearing it, which would lead to punishment from their Lord Almighty. They were satisfied to be inanimate objects, and had they accepted, they would have been responsible for the deeds that man is responsible for.
Ibn Jibreen
