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.
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?
