LESSON # 7 HOLY QUR’AAN
F A A T I H A H – 1
Verse – 4 of 7, section -1
|Iyyaaka na’-budu wa iyyaaka
|Thee (alone) we worship; Thee (alone) we ask for help|
. Formerly, we have read about four epithets of ALLAH in the earlier lessons:-
Every thing of earth and skies gets its promotion with HIS help. HE completes necessities of each creature. HE is The Boundless BENEFICENT. HE resolves the problems of each person with HIS kindness. HE removes the difficulties of all kinds. HE is The MERCIFUL too. Who obeys HIS orders and acts upon the instructions, delivered by HIM, gets rewards and after death he will be able to take place under the shade of HIS kindness. HE is also The OWNER of the Day of Judgment. HE produces the results of our deeds in this world and gives exchange. And on the Day of Resurrection HE will also pay the remuneration (rewards for good acts and punishment for the evil).
ALLAH has reminded the people after expressing HIS epithets that they should obey and worship the only one GOD day and night, remember HIM each time, complain HIM at the time of calamity, thank HIM during pleasure and ease hours, pray only for HIM leaving all the liar gods.
Worship means the devotion, respect, honors and obedience which are practiced for The GOD. As though, the person should be busy in worship of ALLAH during his each motion. Worship doesn’t mean only devotion and prayer. Besides service and devotion in worship, perfect obedience is also included with it compulsorily.
Purpose of perfect obedience by the person is to follow all the orders and instructions of ALLAH ALMIGHTY and not to oppose HIS assent in any matter.
“THEE (alone) we worship and THEE (alone) we shall obey in future”. We promise that we shall not get attended to anyone in it.
All the mankind are children of Hadrat Adam (Alaehissalaam). Who has the power to be called himself “God” and compel anyone to do worship for him or how it is right for mankind that he would obey someone except ALLAH ALMIGHTY or live like his own will?
We all are obedient of one GOD “ALLAH”. We don’t agree to obey anyone opposing ALLAH’s orders and instructions.
