And [in this regard, another] incident should be kept in consideration27 when Abraham said: “Show me, Lord, how You will raise the dead?” He replied: “Do you have no faith?” “Yes, but just to reassure my heart” said Abraham. God said: “Take four birds28 and tame them29, and [cut their bodies to pieces] and place a piece of them on each mountain-top, then call them back. They will [come back to life and] come swiftly to you, and [for the future] fully understand that God is mighty and wise.”30 (260) Why does Ghamidi sahab add in brackets to cut them? Couldn’t it mean that the birds come back showing how the soul will fly back to God because of the deep relation? Mufti Abu layth says juz just means place eg one on this mountain and another there.A hole in his interpretation would be though- that Ibrahim عليه السلام asked how is life given to the dead and he wasn’t asking obviously for the effects of the deep relation rather more of a how is it possible type thing.
