Lessons from Holy Qur'an

Advent Of The prophets

What is the Message of Islam?

 

The easy (and correct) answer is that simply, there is only One God and that the Prophet Muhammad (saw) is His Messenger. With this, a Muslim holds strong to the Five Pillars of Islam and believes in each Pillar of Faith. But the Message of Islam is much, much more. It is a way of life, a guide, a teacher and a judge. It is a universal idea without discrimination. It knows no race, nationality, gender, or social class. It is compatible with daily life and is timeless. This world is not the final destination, but only a stop along the way.
The Message of Islam is ALLAH Subhana Wa Ta’ala Instructions to mankind, so that we may be successful in this part of our journey. A Muslim is commanded to do certain things, behave in certain ways, and learn and grow within the community. A Muslim must work and sweat for his or her wages and give generously to those who have little. Equality in economics, justice, politics, and family is essential. Neighborly kindness and support are incumbent. Parents, children, brothers, sisters, husbands, and wives have obligations and rights which form a balance in society. Acquiring knowledge and discipline, and learning how to deal fairly with those around you are challenges directly from ALLAH (swt). A Muslim knows how to handle these tasks by following the Message of Islam.

May God Bless You. 

 

LESSON # 380 FROM HOLY QUR’AN

Advent Of The prophets

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

Verse – 84 of 200, Section –9    (Part – 3)

 

Say (O Muhammad): We believe in Allah and that which is revealed unto us and that which was revealed unto Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and that which was vouchsafed unto Moses and Jesus and the Prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and unto Him we have surrendered.          

Qul  ‘aamannaa billaahi  wa  maaa  ‘unzila  ‘alaynaa  wa  maaa  ‘unzila  ‘alaaa ‘Ibraa-hiima  wa ‘Ismaa-‘iila  wa  ‘Is-haaqa  wa  Ya’-quuba  wal-‘Asbaati  wa  maa  ‘uutiya  Muusaa  wa  ‘Iisaa  wan-nabiyyuuna  mir-Rabbihim.  Laa nufarriqu  bayna  ‘ahadim-minhum.  Wa  nahnu  lahuu  Muslimuun.

Lesson 

 

Now practical likeness of the Muslims have been provided to the People of the Scripture. The Jews and the Christians prove to be wrong, falsified and denied all the remaining Prophets and heavenly Books except their own Prophets (peace be upon them) and heavenly Books (the Scripture). It has been told in this verse about the stance of the Muslims that those people who have entered in the nation of Last Prophet (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) and embraced Islam, they believe in the entire previous Prophets as sent by God Almighty (peace be upon them) without distinction and discrimination. They consider the ancient Holy Books as the Word of Allah Almighty, admit that, “We believe in Allah and understand all the Prophets (peace be upon them) are sent by Him as his Prophets/Messengers (peace be upon them).  

 

Having belief in Allah cannot be considered true without obeying His commandments. We have faith in that Speech of Allah Almighty which is revealed in the form of Holy Qur’an for us and we believe in the important series of the Prophets (peace be upon them). We also admit all those orders, which used to reveal periodically unto Abraham, and his generation’s Prophets, like Ishmael, Isaac and Jacob and out of their tribes (peace be upon them). After them, we have also faith in the Divine’s Word, which was revealed upon Prophet Moses (peace be upon him) in the form of Torah and Jesus (peace be upon him) and the Gospel. Near us these entire Prophets (peace be upon them) were sent by Allah Almighty. They were honest and truthful. The Scripture, which was revealed upon them by Allah Almighty, was rightful. We do not differentiate between them. We do not falsify to anyone of them. Because accusing any Prophet of falsehood will bring in Infidelity, even if everyone else is considered as Prophet. We are real Muslims (the obedient of Allah Almighty).

 

 

Nahnu  lahuu  Muslimuun – (unto Him we have surrendered), the stance of the Muslims has been cleared in this sentence that every Muslim believes in all the Prophets who were sent by Allah Almighty, were honest. Aim of these verses is to produce a pattern for following by the People of the Scripture that, “if you claim to be Muslims then it is the Straight Path. You will reach the destination if you adopt it”.

Lessons from Holy Qur'an

Dispute With Allah’s Religion

LESSON # 379 FROM HOLY QUR’AN

Dispute With Allah’s Religion

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

Verse – 83 of 200, Section –9    (Part – 3)

 

Seek they other than the religion of Allah, when unto Him submitheth whosoever is in the heavens and the earth, willingly or unwillingly, and unto Him they will be returned.         

Afa-gayra  Diinillaahi  yab-guuna  wa  lahuuu  ‘aslama  man  fis-samaawaati  wal-‘arzi  taw-‘anw-wa  karhanw-wa  ‘ilayhi  yurja-‘uun.

Lesson 

 

Diinillaahi – (the religion of Allah), this word has already been used earlier many times. Diinmeans fashion, custom, rites, observances and a way of life, for instance; that particular manner of thought and practice, which is foundation of solicitude and view for work, effort and action. Every community has its own specific ideologies. These ideologies fix his form of thinking. Then in accordance with them, it moulds its all-social manners of living, mode and civilization.

 

 The people of the Scripture had known the news regarding the period of the Last Messenger, Prophet of Islam (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) from their Heavenly Books. Their prophets (peace be upon them) had caused to hear them the glad tidings that one last prophet (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) has to come, whose religion will be of international level. When Prophet of Islam (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) came, they knew him well. But due to envy, malice and persistence they disbelieved in him (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him), denied to embrace Islam and gave the lie.

 

In these conditions, the question raises that if these people are not ready to adopt the most perfect and magnificent religion like Islam, then which religion they like? Do they seek the religion which would be quite separate from entire religions bestowed by Allah Almighty, or they are desirous of any self invented religion? Whereas in the world, Islam used to remain and will remain always as the religion of Allah Almighty, which means obedience. That is to say; to bow the head in front of any order whenever it reaches through any Prophet or Messenger (peace be upon him). Today which religion is being presented by the Last Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), is the same Islam. Freedom is not possible without it. Real success cannot be acquired due to turning away from it. The humankind should never deny obeying the command of Allah Almighty for his own happiness and likeness, wishing this order is cause of happiness for him or he feels compulsion and helplessness in its execution.

 

Some creatures of Allah Almighty are those who accept pleasantly the orders of Allah Almighty as the Angels (peace be upon them), the pious persons and worshipers, and some are those who believe in by force as deniers of the truth, whereas, satisfaction of the hearts cannot be gotten without the religion of Allah Almighty.

 

These entire matters will be illuminated upon these deniers of the truth, when all the humanity will be present before Allah Almighty on the Day of Judgment. The entire creations will have to return there inevitably. Each wise person should be ready before that Day’s presence. If he remains here (in this world) disobedient then what face he will show there?
