LESSON # 378 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
Faithless To One’s Word
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter – 3)
Verse – 82 of 200, Section –9 (Part – 3)
|Then whosoever after this shall turn away: they will be miscreants.||
Faman- ta-wallaa ba’-da zaalika fa-‘ulaaa-‘ika humul-faasiquun.
As it was mentioned in the previous lesson that Allah Almighty had made covenant with the Prophets (peace be upon them) that they will believe in the last Prophet (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) and guide their nations also to believe in him. Since the Prophet (peace be upon him) exists innocent, so it cannot be thought about him that he would be faithless to his word. Therefore, the people about whom the suspicion has been revealed, they might be only out of the nation. Allah Almighty has commanded about them that they will be counted in the big disobedients.
Allah Almighty had knowledge at the time of creation of the sons of Adam that the human being is immature from the side of his sense and puppet of the avarice. He keeps inclination to turn towards the evil. He does not try to escape from becoming disbeliever due to greediness and covetousness. Therefore, it is necessary to guide him. Allah Almighty began to send His Prophets (peace be upon them) for the guidance of mankind. But it is evident that the Prophet (peace be upon him) never remains living in the world always. It was unavoidable to send the Prophets (peace be upon them) one after one.
In such a manner the Prophets (peace be upon them) used to come in the world for the guidance of the humankind. It was needful to establish fellowship between them for the success of this system. They would be taught the same kind of principles and formulas, bestowed same type of basic rules and regulations for rectitude and righteousness, and along with it urge them to help each other. So that the prejudiced and stingy persons might not consider their religion as the last one, which was preached only by their Prophet (peace be upon him), and would not falsify the next coming Prophet (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). Therefore, Allah Almighty made covenant with the entire Prophets (peace be upon them). These all Prophets (peace be upon them) used to guide their nations on this topic according to their covenants.
In all, there were also Prophet Moses and Jesus (peace be upon them). These both venerable persons told their nations (the Jews and the Christians) about fair divine inspiration of the apostleship of Last Messenger, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him). But their nations ignored the sayings of these noble persons (peace be upon them), altered the Heavenly Scripture, put the difference in meanings of their verses and participated with exertion in each type of insurrection.
When the Messenger of Islam (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) was sent, they denied to believe in him after knowing and did not care the orders and guidance of their Prophets (peace be upon them). They tyrannized themselves becoming disbelievers and caused to enumerate in the disobedient.
faasiqun– (miscreant), those people who infringe the orders of Allah Almighty and are agreed upon the criminals of disobedience.
