LESSON # 335 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
Future Reward For Abstemious
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter – 3)
Verse – 15 of 200, Section –2 (Part – 3)
|Say: Shall I inform you of something better than that? For those who keep away from evil, with their Lord, are Gardens underneath which rivers flow wherein they will abide for ever, and pure companions, and goodwill of Allah. And Allah is Seer of His Bondmen.||
Qul ‘a-‘unabbi-‘ukum bi-khayrim-min- zaalikum. Lil-laziinat-taqaw ‘inda Rabbihim Jannaatun tajri min- tahtihal- ‘anhaaru khaalidiina fiihaa wa ‘azwaajum-mutah-haratunw-wa rizwaanum-minal—laah. Wal-laahu Basiirum- bil-‘ibaad.
‘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.
