LESSON # 164 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)
God Is One God
Verse –163 of 286, Section – 19 (Part 2)
Your God is One God; there is no God save Him, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
Wa ‘Ilaahukum ‘Ilaahunw-Waahid. Laaa ‘ilaaha ‘illaa Huwar-Rahmaa-nur-Rahiim.
The important question of Islam is the matter of Unity (Oneness of God Almighty). It has been repeated in the Holy Qur’an again and again. The root of the entire Faiths and base of all the good works establishes on this Belief that Lord of the whole mankind, Master of the Universe, Entitled of the Worship and Accountant for the Day of Resurrection is only One God. Only that person goes near the sins, evils and badness who neither believes on the Existence of the Most Superior and the Excellent Life of God Almighty and nor on His Power, Strength and on the Doomsday.
As the people of Scripture and Atheist nations had much depravity, barbarous-ness, dark notion and worshipping of whims, to remove this tendency Islam has presented the greatest Belief of Unity (Oneness of God) and told that there is only One God Almighty Who completes all the necessities of each human being. He is the God Almighty Who helps during the times of difficulties, troubles and pains, Who tests after granting the blessings and favors, Who provides the eatables and drinkables, and forgives the sins wit His Mercy. So He is the Only to be Worshipped, to be Called each time, to be deemed our Master and Lord. We should have sense about counting of our good and bad deeds and answerable in His Court on the Day of Resurrection.
There is the only one faith, which is the Unity (Oneness of God), which helps us to fix upon the straight path. We shall become thoughtful after obeying on this belief, anyhow we might not go astray from the actual path, we might not treat others with bad behavior. As the God Almighty is the Merciful upon us, likewise we should also behave with mercy and kindness with His creature.
Particularly two matters have come in front of us from this verse:
- Allah Almighty is the only Life to be worshipped, to be obeyed and our Commander in Chief. There is none to be bent in front except Him.
- Kind nature with blessings of God Almighty is with whole Grace and Mercy. No doubt He is the Omnipotent and Very Powerful but His Mercy is containing over the entire things. The mankind should never be hopeless and desperate from His mercy.
Desiring the difficulties are how much bigger, contest is how much strong, if we are on the Just God Almighty shall help us. He will never return us disappointed from His Court.
