Victory From God                                                                                                                                                 

Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter – 3)

Verse – 13  of  200, Section –2    (Part – 3)

 

There was a token for you in two hosts which met. One army fighting in the Way of Allah, and another disbelieving, whom they saw as twice their number, clearly, with their very eyes. And thus Allah strengtheneth with His succour whom He will. Lo! herein verily is a lesson for those who have eyes.        

Qad  kaana  lakum  ’Aayatun-  fii  fi- ‘ataynil-taqataa.  Fi- ‘atun-tuqaatilu  fii  Sabii-lillaahi  wa  ‘ukhraa  kaafiratuny-yaraw-nahum-mis-layhim  ra’-yal- ‘ayn.  Wallaahu  yu- ‘ayyidu  bi-nasrihii  many-ya- shaaa’.  ‘Inna  fii  zaalika  la- ‘ib-ratal-li ‘ulil- absaar.

Lesson 

       

Allah Almighty has signified towards an event for the people who take warning with impossible happenings. This event is notorious with the name “Battle of Badr”. Encounter took place between Muslim Army and Idolaters of Al-Makkah at this occasion. Succor of Allah Almighty reached Muslims, and True and False (Haqq o Baatil) were separated.

 

Number of Infidels was nearly one thousand in the Battle of Badr. They had seven hundred camels and one hundred horses. Their warriors were much experienced and skilled in fighting. On the other hand, Muslim warriors were three hundred and thirteen only. They had only seventy camels, two horses, six chain armors and eight swords. Both Armies saw one another as twice their number, clearly, with their very eyes. The fear of abundance in number of the Muslims prevailed over the hearts of Infidels and they terrified.

 

On the other side, the Muslims turned more attention to Allah Almighty due to looking the Infidels’ Army twice in numbers from them. They kept hope of victory and support with firmness and stability placing confidence in the promise of Allah Almighty. If number of Infidels’ Army did appear in full upon Muslims, which were thrice in number from them, then it was possible that the fear had to overshadow upon them. However, it is an admonitory event for the discreet people to render the small and without means group victorious over such strong group likewise which was thrice in number from them. On that day the prediction was completed which was told to the Muslims many years ago in Al-Makkah.  

 

We have learnt from this lesson that real thing is patience and trust in Allah Almighty, not abundance of weapons, equipment and manpower. We should have faith in Allah Almighty in all difficulties and pray Him for support, because entire success and victories are in His Hand.

 

It is not only one event in the Islamic History like this, which has been signified in this verse i.e. the Battle of Badr. But whenever the truth loving have come out with this passion and fervor in the field to sacrifice, victory of Allah Almighty has remained with them of similar circumstances.

LESSON # 332 FROM HOLY  QUR’AN

A Warning                                                                                                                                                 

Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter – 3)

Verse – 10 to 12  of  200, Section –2    (Part – 3)

 

  1. 10.  (On that Day) neither the riches nor the progeny of those who disbelieve will aught avail them with Allah. And they will be fuel for Fire-

 

  1. 11.  Like Pharaoh’s folk and those who were before them. They disbelieved Our Revelations, so Allah seized them for their sins. And Allah is Severe in punishment.

 

  1. 12.  Say (O Muhammad) unto those who disbelieve: Ye shall be overcome and gathered unto Hell. And it is an evil resting-place.        

 10.  ‘Innal-laziina  kafaruu  lan-tug-niya  ‘anhum  ‘amwaaluhum  wa  laaa  ‘awlaaduhum-minal-laahi  shay- ‘aa.  Wa  ‘ulaaa- ‘ika  hum  waquudun-  Naar.

 

11.  Kada’-bi  ‘aali  Fir- ‘awna,  wallaziina  min-  qablihim.  Kaz-zabuu  bi- ‘aayaatinaa  Fa- ‘akha-zahumullaahu  bi-  zunuubihim.  Wallaahu  Shadiidul- ‘iqaab.

 

12.  Qul-lillaziina  kafaruu  sa-sa-tuglabuuna  wa tubsharuuna  ‘ilaa  Jahannam.  Wa  bi’-sal-mihaad.

Lesson 

       

The Infidels and Idolaters have been warned in the first verse of this lesson that as ancient nations were punished for their infidelity and plurality in Oneness of God, just like them you will be punished also for such sins.  

 

This verse signifies towards Pharaoh and the nations earlier to him that they falsified the Prophets (peace be upon them) sent by Allah Almighty, refused His tokens and disobeyed His Orders. Allah Almighty arrested them in punishment for these all sins and punished them severely. Therefore, one should take warning from those ancient nations, and present Infidels and Idolaters should abstain from perverseness. It has been predicted in the second verse that all those Infidels who are enemies of Allah Almighty and His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), will be overcome soon. The Muslims will defeat them. After being punishable in this world, they will be cast fuel in to the splendid Fire of Hell, which is certainly an evil resting-place (very bad place).
