Stranger Trusties

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

Verse –118 of 200, Section –12    (Part – 4)

 

O ye who believe! Take not for intimates others than your own folk, who would spare no pains to ruin you; they love to hamper you. Hatred is revealed by (the utterance of) their mouths, but that which their breasts hide is greater. We have made clear for you the Revelations if ye will understand.

Yaaa-‘ayyu-hallaziina  ‘aamanuu  laa tatta-khizuu  bitaanatam-min-  duunikum  laa  ya’-luunakum  kha-baalaa. Wadduu  maa  ‘anittum. Qad  badatil-bagzaaa-‘u  min  ‘afwaa-hihim. Wa  maa  tukhfii  suduu-ruhum  ‘akbar. Qad  bayyannaa  lakumul-‘Aayaati  ‘in-  kuntum  ta’-qiluun.

Lesson

 

In connection with the purpose to reveal this verse, description about both the groups i.e. the Jews and the Hypocrites has been mentioned. This narration has been written about the first mentioned group, that before Islam, those Muslims who had friendly relations with the Jews based on the neighborhood, remained as usual they were even after Islam. Trusting in their friendship, the Muslims used to tell them also some confidential matters/suggestions.

 

About the Hypocrites, it is narrated that considering them as Muslims, usually the Believers did not use to be careful from them and used to tell them their (Muslims) secrets. Likewise, fear of severe loss used to remain from them.

 

To save the Muslims from the evil of Jews and Hypocrites, here it has been told clearly that the Muslim should not take for intimates others than the Muslims, because no group is well-wisher of the Muslims, either they are Jews or Christians, Hypocrites or Idolaters. Nevertheless, these people remain in endeavor always to harm the Muslims, involve them in the religious and worldly mischief. They become happy when the Muslims remain in difficulty and calamity.

 

Allah Almighty says that the enmity and hatred, which their breasts hide, is greater. Usually they love to hamper you. Sometimes their feelings of suffocation and hatred are revealed by the utterance of their mouths, which provide their deep enmity clearly. Their tongues do not remain in their control due to rivalry and jealousy. Therefore, a wise person should not take such distrustful enemies for his/her intimates.

Likeness Of Money Spent By A Disbeliever

LESSON # 412 FROM HOLY QUR’AN

Likeness Of Money Spent By A Disbeliever   

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

Verse –117 of 200, Section –12    (Part – 4)

 

The likeness of that which they spend in this life of the world is as the likeness of a biting, icy wind which smiteth the harvest of a People who have wronged themselves, and devastateth it. And Allah wronged them not, but they do wrong themselves.

Masalu  maa  yunfiquuna  fii haazihil-hayaatid-dunyaa  ka-masli  riihin-  fiihaa  sirrun ‘asaabat  harsa  qaw-min- zala-muuu  ‘anfusahum  fa-‘ahla-kat-h. Wa maa zalamahumul-laahu  wa laakin  ‘anfusahum yazlimuun.

Lesson

 

The result of the Infidels has been described in this verse that whatever the wealth they spend in the world, it would not have any value on the Day of Resurrection, because due to lack of faith their each deed is lifeless and dead.

 

Thus, its meed would also be perishable and they will get it only in this world. Belief is the protector of acts forever. Likeness of the acts without faith is as someone planted a garden and did not arrange to protect it from the frost. Looking at the garden’s prosperity and greenness, he used to be happy for a few days and rely on it very much. Suddenly a biting, icy wind blows and it smites his entire blooming garden and harvest. That person remained losing his destruction and ruin. Neither his hope was completed and nor he could get any advantage from its production at the time of necessity. This destruction was a punishment of his tyranny and wickedness. Therefore, he will not be able to get any meed/reward upon this calamity in the Hereafter.    

 

 ka-masli  riihin-(likeness of wind) Alms and charity giving bythe disbelievers has been explained as such a gust of air, which has biting and icy wind. It means, “That air which becomes cause of suffering and destruction in place of delight and merriment”.  Apparently, the human beings trust in it, but in fact its result comes out opposite.    

 

The disbelievers of Allah Almighty do well (according to their thoughts) and spend money on good deeds. Apparently, the observer expects good results from it but really, it is not as such. When greatest services of a disloyal and rebellious cannot save him from the punishment of the crime of violence in the world then how the disbelievers may escape from the punishment in the court of Most Strong Ruler, Allah Almighty?
