(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

وَإِذَا وَقَعَ ٱلْقَوْلُ عَلَيْهِمْ أَخْرَجْنَا لَهُمْ دَآبَّةً مِّنَ ٱلْأَرْضِ تُكَلِّمُهُمْ أَنَّ ٱلنَّاسَ كَانُوا۟ بِـَٔايَٰتِنَا لَا يُوقِنُونَ 82

82.  And when the Word is fulfilled concerning them, We shall bring forth a beast of the earth to speak unto them because mankind had not faith in Our Revelations. 82.  Wa  ‘izaa  waqa-‘al-Qawlu  ‘alayhim  ‘akhrajNaa  lahum  Daaabbatam-minal-‘arzi  tu-kallimuhum,  ‘annannaasa  kaanuu  bi-‘AAyaatiNaa  laa  yuuqinuun.

(Section 6)

Commentary

 

Daaabbatan – (beast, irrational animal as opposed to man, quadruped).

 

It was described earlier that these people say: Tell us if you are true that when the Doomsday will come? They were replied: Surely the Day of Judgment will come but only Allaah Almighty knows concerning its correct time. Consider it a Boon till the coming of that Day. Believing would not be useful when it came. It is sufficient for your betterment to know that coming of the Day of Resurrection is unavoidable, so that you begin effort of trying to be saved immediately from the Doom of Allaah Almighty. A Token of the Judgment Day has been described in this verse. When that Token will appear, then believing will not benefit anyone.

 

It is commanded: When the General Resurrection will be near to befall, then We will bring forth a creature; which will speak to them and say that “the Last Day is near”. It is commanded: Purpose of bringing forth this beast will be that the people used not to believe in the Tokens which had been spreading in the world.

 

When even a beast will say that “which the Prophets (peace be upon them) had said, was quite true”, then there will be a clear difference between Believers and Disbelievers. And they will become totally separate from one another. And that beast himself will describe clearly that who is Believer and who is Disbeliever.

 

After that, carpeting of this world will be inverted (this world will be folded) and all things will be finished. In short, such unusual matters will happen, by which no one will remain doubtful in the Sayings of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him).

Commentary

 

At first; it was commanded: The mankind has been informed by means of Holy Qur’an concerning goodness and badness. Here; it has been explained: Indeed, your Lord will judge between the people by His Wise Judgment. He is the Exalted in Might as well as the Wise in Knowing. Therefore, you should perform your duty unhesitatingly and have trust in Allaah Almighty. Believe in it that you are quite right, going on the Straight Path, and you should not be afraid of their gabble. You should not grieve for them who do not listen to you. They are blind, deaf and dead-heart. And they do not wish to come out from such condition. It is not in your power that you may make the dead and deaf to hear the call. You (grace, glory, blessings and peace by upon him) cannot bring them to right path, particularly when those have turned their backs; who have gone astray and who are blind of hearts. Only those people will reap advantage from your sayings, who believe in Allaah Almighty and obey His Commandments. Such people are obedient and subject slaves of their Lord.

Commentary

 

Kitaabum-mubiinun – (a clear Register, Luminous Book), often this word has been used for “Lawhi Mahfuuz” (A Table on which the destinies of the world since its creation and till its end are written).

 

It was previously commanded: Certainly they will be punished due to their evil deeds, and there is no wonder in it that some punishment may be given to them in this world. Allaah Almighty is not only Aware of their apparent deeds but He knows also their all secrets and mischief hidden in their hearts.

 

It has been commanded in this verse: Not only their entire deeds, but everything of the world, whether that is big or little, open or hidden, and whether that is in the heaven or in the earth, and what happened or what will happen, has been recorded and exists one by one as it is or as it will be, in the Luminous Book. When the time of any matter’s happening will come, will become manifest, whether you hasten or be silent. And that will be recorded as in fact what you will do. And the result of your every deed will come before you as it would be. Information concerning such entire matters has been given in this Qur’an, knowing of which is unavoidable for the mankind.

 

Before this, the Children of Israel were also informed by means of Torah concerning the circumstances and the news according to that time. But they forgot most of the commandments mentioned in Torah and set up their own judgments about them and began to quarrel together. The same matters have been described again in Holy Qur’an clearly, so that they may finish their disputes and adopt the way as guided by Holy Qur’an. It depends upon them whether they do or deny. However, Holy Qur’an is a Guidance and a source of Mercy for those who believe in it, and they will reap advantages always from it.

72.  Say: It may be that a part of that which ye would hasten on is close behind you.

74.  Wa  ‘inna  Rabbaka  la-  ya’-lamu  maa  tukinnu  suduuru-hum  wa  maa  yu’-linuun.

Commentary

 

Radifa – (close behind), it is in past tense from the word radfun, which means “to sit behind a rider”. Such person is called radiif and ridaf. Here it aims “to reach near”.

 

Tukinnu – (to hide, to conceal), this word is from ‘iknaanun, which means “to conceal in the veil”.

 

It was commanded in the previous verse that the Day of Resurrection has been fixed for punishment and reward of personal deeds. No one knows that when it will come. However surely it will come but the people do not believe in it. One should understand it clearly by beholding wicked deeds of the guilty people that those criminals who were not punished in this worldly life, will certainly be punished. They cannot be saved even after death. The name of that Day is “the Doomsday”.

 

The Infidels of Makkah, who were impatient, they asked: Tell us if you are true; that when the Doomsday will come? It has been commanded in this verse: Say to them! Allaah Almighty knows its determined time. Surely it will come; sooner or later. It is possible that some part of punishment of your evil deeds is given to you shortly even in this world. (This prediction was made up in the Battle of Badr). They do not understand it that delay in torment is Grace of Allaah Almighty. But instead of showing gratitude of His Grace, they have been demanding immediate punishment. Say to them that Allaah Almighty knows their hidden wicked deeds and manifest evils!

Commentary

 

It was explained earlier that the knowledge of Unseen is peculiarity of Allaah Almighty. Therefore, only He deserves to be a Worshipped. Only He is Who told such Unseen matters to His Messengers (peace be upon them) by His Grace, in which it was necessary for the betterment of the mankind to believe.

 

Allaah Almighty commanded: Say to them that they should believe in such matters, otherwise they will be ruined. That is to say, if they believe that Allaah Almighty surely exists, coming of His Prophets (peace be upon them) in the world is certain, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) is His last Messenger from them, Holy Qur’an is last heavenly Scripture, the Day of Resurrection shall certainly come, the mankind will be brought back to life again after death, his deeds will be reckoned, good people will be sent into the Garden and wrongdoers will be thrown into the Hell.

 

These are the Unseen matters, belief in which is compulsory for the mankind, otherwise he will be destroyed. Say to those people who are in doubt concerning these matters: The truth of these matters will become manifest upon you if you travel through the land.

 

It is being commanded to the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him): These people should travel in the land and see; how the end of those who disobeyed the Commandments of Allaah Almighty was. They were ruined in the world as they were frightened by the Prophets (peace be upon them), and like this; the promise concerning the punishment on the Doomsday will surely be fulfilled as the promise of torment in the world was fulfilled. If someone is saved in this world, he will not be saved on the Day of Judgment. You should neither grieve and nor be in distress if they do not admit. You have performed your duty of causing to understand them. Let them mind their business. They say: If you are true then tell us that when the Day of Resurrection will come and when the wicked people will be punishment! Its answer is in the next lesson.

Commentary

 

It was described in the previous lesson that nobody knows that when the Day of Resurrection will come. Only Allaah Almighty knows it, because save Him, no one have knowledge concerning the Unseen. Many of the people were involved; sometimes in doubt and sometimes they denied.

 

It has been commanded in this verse that the people who do not believe in Allaah Almighty, cannot be aware of the truth concerning the Hereafter. They say: There is no doubt that we have to die, but how may we have belief that when we became dust after death, then we and our parents who died long ago, will be reproduced after bringing them out from the earth. These are legends only which we heard during the whole life. And before us, our ancestors heard the same like us. Thousands of centuries have passed, but neither we heard and nor saw that any mankind was raised again after death. Someone would have said any time that the human beings would be brought forth again after death, their deeds would be reckoned and they would be rewarded or punished according to their deeds. Afterwards, they began to express their opinions about it. The people multiplied their words, made stories and by relating; posteriors listened to the stories of the formers. The same stories (God forbid) have been recorded in Qur’an, whereas there is no reality in it, so none should be entangled in this dispute willing or not willing.

(Section 5)

Commentary

 

‘Iddaaraka – {they (tried to understand but failed)}, actually this word is tadaarak which means “to run behind a thing constantly to catch it, to try to catch by running behind, remedy, management, to take precautions, to provide against”. Here it aims “their knowledge tried continuously to understand the object of Hereafter, but could not get it save it that they failed”. Origin of this word is darkun, which means “to find”. The word ‘idraak has come out from the same, which means “understanding, perception”.

 

‘Amuuna – this word is plural of ‘ami-yun, which means “heartily blind”.

 

Those peculiarities have been described in last five verses which should be in a Real God. Then it has been asked: Have any other these peculiarities save Allaah Almighty? It is evident that none has these peculiarities save Him. Then, is it not result of depravity, ignorance and lack of thinking that you admit someone else as God save Allaah Almighty? He is Exalted and Higher than your false and self-made gods.

 

The Idolaters do not have any strong proof that there is also another god save Allaah Almighty. One more epithet of Allaah Almighty has been mentioned in this verse which is specified with Him only. It is commanded: As He is Most Powerful and Omnipotent; He knows also the entire Unseen secrets of the heavens, the earth and all the worlds. None from the creatures have such knowledge which has encircled everything. It has been explained in these clear words: None in the heavens and the earth knows the Unseen except Allaah. Like this, no one knows that when the Day of Judgment will come and when they will be resurrected.

 

After that it is commanded: Their knowledge is arrested concerning the Hereafter. Some of them are in doubt about it and some, who are blind by heart, have denied.

Commentary

 

Yu-‘iidu – (will reproduce), this word has come out from ‘i-‘aadatun, which has been derived from ‘awdun. ‘Awdun means “to return”. ‘I-‘aadatun means “to send back, to bring back on first position”.

 

The Idolaters are being asked in this verse: Describe! Who is the Creator of all creatures? The fact is that till today no one could give its answer. Any reasonable and acceptable argument was not produced by any person that how the entire universe came into existence. Some one said: It came into existence naturally, another said: We don’t need to think concerning it. It is not sufficient that we invent ourselves any thing from the matter at the time of necessity, which fulfills our desires.

 

Holy Qur’an described to the mankind: Allaah Almighty disclosed the matter by His Perfect Power. Then He created the entire creatures from it. Saying that “these all things have come into existence naturally” is nothing but cheating.

 

A maxim of a simple Badawi Arabian is famous that “while we have to accept after looking dung that it is of a camel, then we will have to admit willingly or unwillingly after looking the sky and the earth that there is Someone Who created them. Moreover, it is obvious that Who created first time, He will reproduce again after deterioration. Think it also! Not only Allaah Almighty created the creatures but He provided requirements for their fostering and stability too from the earth and the sky. Therefore, as He is the Creator, He is the Lord and the Supplier of the means of subsistence also. Produce a strong proof and credential that everything has been created by someone else instead of Allaah Almighty, if you do not admit it! If you wish to become true then you would have to prove, otherwise it is nothing but carelessness and perversity.

أَمَّن يَهْدِيكُمْ فِى ظُلُمَٰتِ ٱلْبَرِّ وَٱلْبَحْرِ وَمَن يُرْسِلُ ٱلرِّيَٰحَ بُشْرًۢا بَيْنَ يَدَىْ رَحْمَتِهِۦٓ أَءِلَٰهٌ مَّعَ ٱللَّهِ تَعَٰلَى ٱللَّهُ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ 63

63.  Is not He (Best) Who guideth you in the darkness of the land and the sea, He Who sendeth the winds as heralds of His Mercy? Is there any God beside Allah? High Exalted be Allah from all that they ascribe as partner (unto Him)! 63.  ‘Ammany-yahdiikum  fii  zulumaatil-barri  wal-bahri  wa  many-yursilur-riyaaha  bushram-bayna  yaday  RahmatiH.  ‘A-‘ilaahum-ma-‘Allaah.  Ta-‘aalAllaahu  ‘ammaa  yushri-kuun.

Commentary

 

For finding a way of any other place from own place is impossible as long as one does not know radically four directions. After determining East, West, North and South, the required place is fixed and its establishment depends on the Stars at night. If a person is in the desert, forest or ship during the darkness of the night, he can do nothing save wandering confounded and confused. None can help him in finding the way whether those are Idols or people unaware of directions and nor those can reach anywhere directly themselves.

 

It is commanded: Allaah Almighty created stars in the sky and caused them to glitter. For them; He determined fixed places. By means of the same arrangement, you can find your destination easily. Moreover, He managed another system for you that He arranged to rain water on the earth at the time of necessity. We knew by thinking that this arrangement also was done by Allaah Almighty Who gave heat to the sun and fixed its different places by setting differences. By means of heat, hot air ascends up and for filling its place, cold winds blow in from all around, which bring rainy clouds along with them. The people are pleased by these winds that now the rain will come, dryness and heat will be repelled. Can any other make this arrangement save Allaah Almighty? Then why do you choose any other as God save Him? High is Allaah Almighty above whatever you associate with Him.

(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

أَمَّن يُجِيبُ ٱلْمُضْطَرَّ إِذَا دَعَاهُ وَيَكْشِفُ ٱلسُّوٓءَ وَيَجْعَلُكُمْ خُلَفَآءَ ٱلْأَرْضِ أَءِلَٰهٌ مَّعَ ٱللَّهِ قَلِيلًا مَّا تَذَكَّرُونَ 62

62.   Is not He (Best) Who answereth the wronged one when he calls up on Him and removeth the evil, and hath made you viceroys of the earth? Is there any God beside Allah? Little do they reflect! 62.  ‘Ammany-yujiibul-muztarra  ‘izaa  da-‘aahu  wa  yakshifus-suuu-‘a  wa  yaj-‘alukum  khulafaaa-‘al-‘arz.  ‘A-‘ilaahum-ma-‘Allaah.  Qaliilam-maa  tazakkaruun.

Commentary

 

Muztarrun – (the wronged one, the desperate one), it is the Passive participle from the word ‘iztiraar (coercion, restraint, compulsion), which has been derived from zarar. Zurrun and zararun means “suffering, misfortune, calamity”. ‘Iztiraar means “to be restless due to any misery and ache. Muztarrun means “the person who has been besieged in any calamity”.

 

The Idolaters of Arab too had belief like other Idolaters that Allaah Almighty is the Greatest and the Worshipped, but they used to adore the Idols. They had set up this false thought in their mind by supposing as the Kings of the world that the superiors do nothing, instead of them; the inferiors do work for them. They used to give the same grades to the Idols which are of a Minister and Treasurer etc. before the Kings. However, if any disaster used to fell suddenly; as being entangled of any ship in a storm etc. then at that time they used to call only upon Allaah Almighty.

 

It is being asked from such insensible people: These Idols are deaf and dumb. Neither these can hear call of any person and nor can reply. When you yourselves become helpless, you invoke Allaah Almighty only; and He is; Who hears the call of every helpless and friendless, and if He desires; removes the calamity. Moreover, He bestows you power on the earth at the place of others. Is there any other who may have such power? While no, then why do you make others adored instead of Him? The actual matter is that you do not use your sense properly. If you have the mind at work, you will find the correct result, but you do not think.
