Lesson 

       

‘a-‘unabbi-‘ukum – (Shall I inform you?), this word has come out from the word nabaa’ which means the News. Word Nabii is also made out of it, literal meaning of which is ‘an informer’.

 

mutah-haratun – (pure, neat), that is to say; innocent, pure and clean from each type of corporeal nastiness and filth.  

 

That abode and its characteristics have been described in this lesson, which was mentioned in the previous verse. Allah Almighty says that best of the blessings is reserved for the Abstinent. All excellence of Hereafter are for them only.

 

Blessings of the world like wealth, children, husbandry and livestock all are fickle and inconstant. These are to be neither trusted nor reliable. To exult into them and make purpose of life to achieve these things after forgetting Allah Almighty is not wise. The benefit should be reaped according to Divine Law and remaining within the boundaries. One should be afraid of the disobedience of Allah Almighty always and His anguish, and should adopt the way of God fearing, because Allah Almighty has promised for those righteous people to give them such a beautiful Garden, in which there will be cold and sweet water flows. They will find there good and pious wives, and life of eternity. Best of all they will get pleasure and consent of Allah Almighty, with which they will get satisfaction of their hearts, comfort and happiness. Only Abstinent people would be able to get these blessings.

 

At last, Allah Almighty related, that He watches every person’s intention and acts. Nothing even the most little thing is not hidden from Him. Therefore, we should be careful, pass our lives righteously and hope for getting reward of our goods acts.

Affection With The Unsteady Things

LESSON # 334 FROM HOLY  QUR’AN

Affection With The Unsteady Things                                                                                                                                                 

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

Verse – 14  of  200, Section –2    (Part – 3)

 

Beautified for mankind is love of the joys (that come) from women and offspring; and stored-up heaps of gold and silver, and horses branded (with their mark), and cattle and land. That is provision of the life of the world. And Allah! With Him is a more excellent abode.

Lesson 

       

Zuyyina  linnaasi – (beautified for the humankind), it has been told in this verse that love, inclination and attraction of these things is a natural matter and in itself there is no sin. However, advantage from these things should be reaped remaining in the subjection of the orders of Divine and their love should be kept limited in the lawful limits.   

 

hubbush-shahawaati – (love of the joys), shahawaatsignifies here towards desirable and pleasant things. In this manner it means “Wishes and desires”. 

 

mataa-‘ul-hayyatid-dunyaa – (provision of the life of the world), it intends that all these types of things are not able to be amused very much. These should not be formed as purpose of life. These are useful only in this world. The world is transitory and its all arrangements are mortal also.  

 

Allah Almighty has affirmed that some worldly things have attraction from His Side naturally for the human being. Humankind likes these things very much. But many people involve themselves in them so much that they forget their Creator, their Lord. There is no sin in itself to value these things. These are compulsory things for living in the world. It is not bad to reap benefit from them but care is necessary that inclination towards them should not be more than necessity. Because doing so the human being will become overjoyed into them. Slowly he will consider them purpose of life and forget his goal. He will miss the right path.

 

It should be borne in mind that these things are transitory. These are useful only in the world. Relationship with them will cut immediately after death. Therefore, one should arrange also for the Day of Resurrection keeping them at their correct place. Real Abode is there (after death) and permanence is for that life.
