LESSON # 396 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
Allah’s Messenger Is In Your Midst
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter – 3)
Verse –101 of 200, Section –10 (Part – 4)
|How can you disbelieve, when it is ye unto whom Allah’s Revelations are recited, and His Messenger is in your midst? And he who holdeth fast to Allah, he indeed is guided unto a right path.||
Wa kayfa tak-furuuna wa ‘antum tutlaa ‘alaykum ‘Aayaa-tullaahi wa fiikum Rasuuluh. Wa many-ya’-tasim billaahi fa-qad hudiya ‘ilaa Siraatim-Musttaqiim.
It has been described in this verse that the nation like Muslims can not become disbeliever after having faith, because Messenger of Allah Almighty (of high dignity) is present between them, who causes to hear them the Word of Allah Almighty, which increases their Belief. He uses to recite the Revelations of Allah Almighty. It is the fact that the person, whosoever holds fast to Allah Almighty leaving entire other paths and whosoever places confidence and trust in Him heartily, no power can foil up or down him from the straight path.
The ancient lineages of Madinah had very severe enmity with each other before Islam. They used to decide on a war upon very ordinary matters and the bazaar of bloodshed used to be hot (angry). When the Last Messenger of Allah Almighty, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) migrated from Makkah to Madinah, then they were in luck. The enmity between the tribes, which had been running since hundreds of the years, changed in to friendship due to teachings of Islam and blessing of the company of Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). Moreover, very strong brotherly relations established between them.
The Jews of Madinah became very unpleasant due to like this meeting of these dynasties and families, and being collected together for the service and protection of Islam. They appointed a person, to make mention wherever the people of both the lineages assemble about “The War of Bu-‘aas” (which was fought between the two famous tribes). He began reading the poetry to remind about the war when he found opportunity to cause to hear the both parties. As soon as the people listened to this poetry, then with in no time a spark of anger was inflamed and both the tribes began to equip their weapons for the war. By chance Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) reached there with some companions (may Allah be pleased with them). He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) commanded, “O Muslims! Be frightened from Allah Almighty. I am in your midst, then how this uncivil calling out aloud? Allah Almighty guided you. Do you want to return from the light of guidance immediately after arriving, towards the darkness of ignorance”? As soon as they listened to the voice of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), then entire rings of the devil’s net broke one by one. All the people threw their weapons and began weeping and embracing each other. They all understood that it was their enemies’ mischievousness, from which they would have to be careful in future.
