This body of rules for appropriate and pious human action constitutes the Covenant (‘ahd; cf. Qurʾa-n 7:172; 2:27, 80; 3:81, 187). In the Qurʾa-n, God’s unswerving adherence to the Covenant and his various ways of doing that over millennia are called “the sunna of God” (sunnat Allah). Concerning the struggles with the Quraysh—the Prophet’s tribe—and regarding the authority of the sunna, the Qurʾa-n says, “Are they looking at anything other than the sunna of the ancients? You will not find any change to God’s sunna and you will not find that God’s sunna is ever turned aside” (Qurʾa-n 35:43).

Ir is a word which is used in many places in the Qurʾa-n to mean create. Here and elsewhere in his al-Tafsı-r, al-Ra-zı- shows that this word in Arabic is attributed not only to God but is also used to express the act of formation or building. ir). ir does not mean creation in the sense of creating all at once, nor does it indicate creation out nothing (ex nihilo) (al-Zurka-n 2003: 18, 178–83). ir are used in the Qurʾa-n, according to al-Ra-zı-, to mean creation ex nihilo. ir do not necessarily prove creation ex nihilo but rather describe God as the originator of the world and indicate that this creation happened in a process of different levels.

I am better than he: You created me from fire, and you created him from clay” (Qurʾa-n 7:12, 38:75–6) (Ibn Hazm 1960: 70). But “analogy” here is a technical term in logic, not the equivalent of qiya-s, which is only a partial synonym. People of the Book who argue knowledgeably about some things argue about others of which only God has knowledge (Qurʾa-n 3:66, 45:24) and study the scriptures anachronistically (Qurʾa-n 3:65). Parables and shorter examples abound in the Qurʾa-n, from the tiniest creature, the gnat, (Qurʾa-n 2:26) to charity like a seed (Qurʾa-n 2:261), to truth and falsehood like metal and “the scum that rises from what they smelt to make jewelry and tools” (Qurʾa-n 13:17).
