LESSON # 341 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
Wicked Deeds Of The Infidels
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter – 3)
Verse – 21 & 22 of 200, Section –3 (Part – 3)
22. Those are they whose works have come to naught in the world and the Hereafter; and they shall have no helpers.
| 21. ‘Innallaziina yakfuruuna bi- ‘Aayaatillaahi wa yaqtuluu-nan-nabiyyiina bi-gayri haq-qinw-wa yaqtuluunal-laziina ya’-muruuna bil-qisti minan-naasi, fa-bash-shirhum- bi- ‘azaabin ‘aliim.
22. ‘Ulaaa- ‘ikallaziina habitat ‘a’-maaluhum fid-dunyaa wal- ‘Aakhirati wa maa lahum- min- naasiriin.
ya’-muruuna bil-qisti – (who enjoin equity), that is to say they guide the people for morality, manners and courtesy, preach for justice in mutual matters and are their true companions.
The Christians of Najraan (Syria) and other Infidels are being told in this verse that it is very big tyranny to fight against the Messengers (peace be upon them), other pious and Just loving persons, to quarrel with the religious advisers and slaughter them with cruelty being non-believers in Allah Almighty. They will be punished severely.
It has been known from a Saying of the Prophet of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) that the children of Israel martyred 43 (forty three) Prophets (peace be upon them) and 170 (one hundred seventy) righteous persons in a day and likewise they were counted in the list of criminals. Holy Qur’an is presenting these entire happenings for the purpose that those who say themselves the obedient of Allah Almighty should meditate that how much their ancestors were evil-doers. Deprival will be for them in this world and Hereafter. Their entire deeds will be of no avail and they will also be punished severely on the Day of Resurrection, and they will find there no companion or helper.
There are many things for our admonition in these events. We should escape ourselves completely from those sins and evils (crimes) which were committed by the past nations, so that the punishment in which they were arrested, that would not be revealed upon us. It is necessary for us that we should not disobey the orders of Allah Almighty, should not oppress the pious and righteous. Moreover, we should remain on the Straight Path so that we may be successful in this world as well as on the Day of Resurrection.
