24 Tafseer Ibn Kathir

وَمَا مِنْ غَايِبَةٍ



and there is nothing hidden,

Ibn Abbas said,

"This means, there is nothing

فِي السَّمَاء وَالاَْرْضِ إِلاَّ فِي كِتَابٍ مُّبِينٍ



in the heaven and the earth but it is in a Clear Book.

This is like the Ayah,

أَلَمْ تَعْلَمْ أَنَّ اللَّهَ يَعْلَمُ مَا فِى السَّمَأءِ وَالاٌّرْضِ إِنَّ ذلِكَ فِى كِتَـبٍ إِنَّ ذلِكَ عَلَى اللَّهِ يَسِيرٌ

Know you not that Allah knows all that is in the heaven and on the earth! Verily, it is (all) in the Book. Verily, that is easy for Allah. (22;70
