LESSON # 114 HOLY QUR’AN
BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)
Store For The Doomsday
Verse –110 of 286, (Part Three-Fourth) Section – 13
And establish worship, and pay the poor-due. And whatever of good ye send before (you) for your souls, ye will find it with Allah. Lo! Allah is Seer of what ye do.
Wa ‘aqiimus-Salaata wa ‘aatuz-Zakaah. Wa maa tuqad-dimuu li-‘anfusikum-min khay-rin- taji-duuhu ‘indallaah. ‘In-nallaaha bimaa ta’-maluuna Basiir.
As you have already studied that the main cause of not accepting the Islam by the children of Israel was their envy. They were burning that why the prophet hood has been bestowed to the children of Ishmael snatching from the children of Israel. They were refusing to admit the Just only due to the fire of envy and jealousy.
They also wanted to include the Muslims with their disbeliever companions after leaving their religion Islam. So they used to try for growing different types of suspicious thoughts in their hearts. They used to criticize the religion Islam and personality of the Last Prophet Muhammad (glory, grace, peace and blessings be upon Him) . They imagined that if the Muslims will not leave their religion then at the very least them will become suspicious certainly from their religion side. So hence the religion Islam will become weak.
Allah Almighty commanded the Muslims to resist the attack and remove the try of the children of Israel that they must not attend to them. Moreover, wait for the proclamation of the last command Jihad (to try and strive) of God Almighty and during this period be frozen on two basic principles. (1) Establish the prayer. (2) Pay the poor-due. These two principles are like two main pillars due to which the power of both (individual as well as the nation) increases and that can not be rebelled from the religion.
Besides other unlimited advantages organization of the nation becomes powerful due to establish the prayer. Relationship between the persons themselves becomes profound. And they remain united for each other. The wealth is divided with the poor-due. The poor becomes rich and they can not be changed due to greed and cause of their financial weakness.
It has also been told that if you will continue this good act then you will get reward from your Lord Almighty because He witnesses your each act. Even a little try of any person does not become fruitless.
So to escape ourselves from the conspiracies and attacks of the enemies we should catch with firmness these two principles.
