LESSON # 10 HOLY QUR’AAN
F A A T I H A H – 1
PATH OF THOSE WHO ACQUIRED REWARDS
Verse – 6 of 7, section -1
|The path of those whom Thou hast favoured|
We begged to show us straight path from ALLAH in the previous lesson/verse. Now it has been explained about straight path in this verse. Perfect knowledge and all instructions have been revealed in the Holy Qur’aan. ALLAH ALMIGHTY has also sent a lot of practical patterns towards human beings, so that we may follow their pure lives and move on the right path easily. So we have been instructed to beg from ALLAH to flow us on their holy foot-prints, who were granted rewards.
Kinds of the persons, who acquired rewards, have been mentioned in The Verse # 4: 69 (Surah an-Nisaa). “Whoso obeyed ALLAH and The Messenger, they are with those unto whom ALLAH hath shown favor, of the Prophets and The Saints and The Martyrs and The Righteous. And what a best of company are They indeed.”
The Prophets, The Messengers (peace be upon Them). The person, who was chosen by ALLAH to convey HIS message up to HIS human beings. There is no possibility of mistake in the teachings of any Prophet (peace be upon Them). Prophet remains innocent and protected from the sins. A lot of circumstances of the Prophets (peace be upon Them) have been explained in The Holy Qur’aan. Chief of the nice class of Prophets is The Last Prophet, Muhammad (peace be upon Them). His all holy Habits and Sayings have been protected in writing. Our success in this life and freedom on the Day of Resurrection is hidden in following the foot-prints of Holy Prophet (peace be upon Him).
The Saints – True, Faithful, Sincere.
Saints come at the second position after Prophets (peace be upon Them). These people achieve higher degrees, following the teachings of The Prophets (peace be upon Them), as like Hadrat Abu Bakr Siddique (Radi ALLAHo anho) The First Caliph of The Last Prophet (peace be upon Him)
The Martyrs. Those honorable persons, who become effective particularly with the teachings of Prophets (peace be upon Them). They have full faith upon the promises of GOD and future rewards of the virtues.
The Righteous. Those servants of ALLAH who try whole heartedly to follow the Prophets (peace be upon Them) with all possible methods. These all great persons become sample for them who will come after them.
ALLAH ALMIGHTY commands us in this verse, “Straight and Right Path is the path on which the persons moved, who have acquired rewards.
