﴿3﴾ خَلَقَ الْإِنسَانَ
3. He created man.
Following a treatment of the unique Blessing of teaching the Holy Qur’an in the preceding Verse, the blessed Verse in question says: "He created man." It goes without saying that the word "man" (insān) designates mankind rather than Prophet Adam (AS), since he rather than the Noble Prophet of Islam (SAW) will be mentioned in the following Verses, though the Noble Prophet of Islam (SAW) is a man par excellence. The All-Encompassing Blessing of speech which will follow serves as another argument substantiating the general application of the word "man." Thus, other interpretations are not seemingly true.
Indeed, creation of man as the most wondrous creature in the world of existence, i.e. the macrocosm included in man, the microcosm, is an unequalled Blessing, since each dimension of his being is a great Blessing. It is worthy of note that man begins its being as an unworthy semen, narrowly speaking, a microscopic being afloat in that unworthy drop of semen. Nonetheless, the being, thanks to Divine Lordship, proceeds on the path of evolution and development such that he may be promoted to the state of the most exalted and the noblest being in the world of existence. It is also worthy of note that the name of man follows the Holy Qur’an, since the Holy Qur’an encompasses all the secrets of the world of existence in their codified form and man is the synopsis of these secrets in the form of coming into being and development and each and every man reflects a version of this great and vast world!
