Lesson 

 

As it has been described in detail in the previous verses that after the arguing with the group of Najraan and notwithstanding to believe heartily in the truth of the Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), the Christians did not believe. They used to calumniate that Allah Almighty has said a certain thing, so and so has been written in this Scripture, whereas, they used to concoct all these sayings personally at their own. Moreover, No Prophet or Messenger (peace be upon him) teaches against the orders of Allah Almighty. He [Prophet or Messenger (peace be upon him)] never commands to worship him. He says always, “Be of Allah”. But the Nazarene changed the commands of Allah Almighty and did not accept. They used to differentiate between the Prophets (peace be upon them), whereas Allah Almighty sent all of them with one path of guidance and taught them the lesson of Unity (Oneness of God).

 

After knowing these entire realities even then, the Christians did not believe and used to deny. They used to sell their faith being involved in the love of wealth and property, and entangled in the worldly aims, did not use to care for the Doomsday, arrange for their end. Allah Almighty publicized that He would never show the path of guidance to such people. Moreover, as for such, their guerdon is that on them rests the curse of Allah

Almighty and of angels (peace be upon them) and of men combined, they will abide therein for ever. Their doom will not be lightened, neither will they be reprieved.

 

Look at the Mercy of Allah Almighty that He gives another chance to the mankind to repent, to be ashamed on his bad acts and entitled of forgiveness. But the disbelievers still do not understand, refuse to Allah Almighty, use to become fixed on it during their entire life and do not repent till the moment of death. The whole earth full of gold would not be accepted from such people if it were offered as a ransom for their soul. These are the sinners. They would have to see their painful doom, enjoy the severest chastisement. There will be neither any friend of them, nor helper, nor supporter and nor their any saver from Allah Almighty. Moreover, these people will be helpless and support-less. Nobody will be his or her trustworthy in the Day of Resurrection.

 

The wise and circumspect person should take warning from these circumstances and facts. He should not spoil his Hereafter adopting the way of stray people, and should not make his future disgusting. In addition, getting lesson from these matters he should choose the path of goodness.  

There are two punishments mentioned in this verse: 1. a painful doom,   2.   they will have no helpers. Those would slip away on which supports they were proud. They will leave from which friends they had expectation. Blessed are those who stand before time.

Lessons from Holy Qur'an

Compensation Is Not Acceptable From Disbelievers

LESSON # 386 FROM HOLY QUR’AN

Compensation Is Not Acceptable From Disbelievers

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

Verse – 91a of 200, Section –9    (Part – 3)

 

Lo! those who disbelieve, and die in disbelief, the (whole) earth full of gold would not be accepted from such an one if it were offered as a ransom (for his soul).   

‘Innal-laziina kafaruu  wa  maatuu  wa  hum  kuffaarun- falany-yuqbala  min  ‘ahadihim  mil-‘ul-‘arzi  zahabanw-wa  la-wiftadaa  bih.

Lesson 

 

In this verse such infidels and sinners have been admonished who think always that gold and silver (wealth and property) are the actual source of whole power and strength. Money covers the entire sins and conceals all the evils. They think that as they escape from punishment of crimes by giving a bribe or ransom in this world, likewise they might escape from wrath of Allah Almighty by giving Him silver and gold as a ransom in the Doomsday.

 

Allah Almighty has told them that their imaginations were vain. If any sinner out of them have gold equivalent to the entire earth and he wishes to present it as ransom of his sins to Allah Almighty, then it will never be accepted. He has no need of the gold. He is Owner of the whole universe, earth and skies, Creator of all the creatures and existents, all are obedient unto Him from an atom to the sun, from an ant to elephant and from inferior sinner human being to a high dignity Prophet (peace be upon him). Gold, silver, money, wealth and riches, all are in His Ownership and He is the One, Who gives these all things to the people. Then why would He forgive the sinners against the ransom of it?

 

In fact ideology of bribe and ransom is creation of those people, whose religion is money and wealth, whose purpose of life is wealth, who look for this during their entire life, spend their time and labor to acquire it, pass their age for its collection. At last taking its grief in their hearts, they leave this mortal world with empty hands. These people used to run behind the gold and silver, and did close pursuit for the wealth. They endowed their entire attention and labor for it, but found too much dreadful, full of pain and suffering result. They remained in the same wrong supposition that this thing is the origin of salvation and cause of success. But these blind of wisdom do not know that the real wealth is the wealth of Belief. Real capital is the capital of virtue. Gold and silver have the value not even like just a worthless straw comparatively to good acts. On the Doomsday, just righteousness can save. Heaps of gold and silver would not work in the Hereafter.

Iftadaa-  (offered as a ransom) ransom means to repay, which is paid in return of any fault or sin in the form of wealth or any other thing.

 

The People of the Scripture had false belief about ransom, which became cause of their waywardness and easiness.
