LESSON # 125 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)
Hold on the Day of Resurrection
Verse –122 & 123 of 286, Section – 15
122. O Children of Israel! Remember My favour wherewith I favoured you and how I preferred you to (all) creatures.
123. And guard (yourselves) against a Day when no soul will in aught avail another, nor will compensation be accepted from it, nor will intercession be of use to it; nor will they be helped.
122. Yaa-Baniii- ‘Israaa-‘iilaz-kuruu ni’-matiyallatiii ‘an-‘am-tu ‘alaykum wa ‘annii fazzaltukum ‘alal-‘aalamiin.
123. Wattaquu Yawmal-laa tajzii nafsun ‘an-nafsin- shay-‘anw-wa laa yuqbalu minhaa ‘adlunwa-wa laa tanfa-‘uhaa shafaa-‘atunw-wa laa hum yunsaruun.
We have learnt the lessons on these both verses in lesson #55 and 60 (verse – 40 & 47). Recitation about the children of Israel had been commenced from there and till now their scientific doctrinal and practical weaknesses are being explained. They have also been invited towards the Straight Path that is to say Islam. It has been proved through clear and bright evidences that the Last Prophet (may glory, grace, blessings and peace be upon Him) is on the Truth, a true Prophet, and it is necessary for every person to believe Him (may glory, grace, blessings and peace be upon Him) and remain steadfast on His teachings. The children of Israel were also instructed to adopt the straight path of Allah Almighty leaving anger, opposition, making religious groups between them and stubbornness.
Now they are being reminded again for those things and notifying consequences of the Day of Resurrection. In this world a person can escape by the help of any other person, reward or penalty and by recommendations or power/emphasis. But to Allah Almighty nothing will be helpful out of these things. Just each person’s own acts and deeds will be helpful there. Tributes, fines, recommendations, friendship or anyone else’s help will become useless on the Doomsday.
