Rightful Owners Of The Fire

LESSON # 411 FROM HOLY QUR’AN

Rightful Owners Of The Fire

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

Verse –116 of 200, Section –12    (Part – 4)

 

Lo! the riches and the progeny of those who disbelieve will not avail them aught against Allah; and such are rightful owners of the Fire. They will abide therein forever.

‘Innal-laziina  kafaruu  lan-tugniya  ‘anhum  ‘amwaa-luhum  wa laaa  ‘awlaaduhum-minal-laahi  shay-‘aa. Wa  ‘ulaaa-‘ika  ‘As-haabun-Naar. Hum  fiihaa  khaaliduun.

Lesson

 

After describing about the righteous people, now discussion about the Infidels begins. Allah Almighty has commanded in this verse that only Belief is the thing, which will help in the World and the Hereafter. Nothing of the worldly things like wealth and property, children and family will help the human being. For these things, someone must not deteriorate his/her Hereafter.

 

This matter has already been explained earlier that biggest reason for human being, which attracts towards the infidelity and denial, is the wealth, property and the children. These things tempt the person, he loves, keeps them very dare and forgets the difference between right and wrong being in love with them. Sometimes he becomes ready to sacrifice the honesty, truth, justice and virtue. He imagines that piles of wealth and property, sons and relatives will help him everywhere. These things will ward off his each misfortune. This immature person does not understand that these entire things are mortal. Their life is for a few days. These all are inferior and unreal things, which will not provide him any support. The real thing is the Wealth of Belief, which is sustainable and eternal, due to which humankind gets respect and honor in the world as well as wants success in the Hereafter.

 

 

Today we see so much such people around us who are proud of their wealth, puffed up upon the majority of their children, and who have pride for their property and factories. They consider these things as their belief and religion, and being in haughtiness of these things, they forget their Lord and Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him), laugh at the good and simpleton human beings. Their last destination is the Hell, in whose Fire they will remain burning forever.

 

As though, the success and the failure, the torment and the meed of the Hereafter will be according to mankind’s deeds. In the Scale of Justice, these acts will be weighed. Their names and family background will be useless.

Excellence Of The Worshipping God

LESSON # 410 FROM HOLY QUR’AN

Excellence Of The Worshipping God

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

Verse –114 & 115 of 200, Section –12    (Part – 4)

 

  1. They believe in Allah and the Last Day, and enjoin right conduct and forbid the wrong, and vie one with another in good works. And these are of the righteous.

 

  1. And whatever good they do, they will not be denied the meed thereof. And Allah is Aware of those who ward off (evil).  

 114.  Yu’-minuuna  billaahi  wal-Yaw-mil-‘Aakhiri  wa  ya’-muruuna  bil-ma’-ruufi  wa  yan-hawna  ‘anil-munkari  wa  yu-saari-‘uuna  fil-khay-raat.  Wa  ‘ulaaa-‘ika  minas-Saalihiin.

Lesson

 

The characteristics of the righteous group from the People of the Scripture are being described. Their three virtues were stated in the first verse, that is to say; they are on the straight path, recite the Revelations of Allah Almighty in the hours of night and they fall prostrate before Allah Almighty. Now their some more qualities have been mentioned.

 

They have faith in Allah Almighty and the Last Day whole heartedly, fear from the Day of Judgment and want to precede running fast from others when they are called for any good work. Moreover, they also wish to bring others towards the right path. No doubt, these are the People from the Jews, to whom Allah Almighty bestowed fortune of good disposition and special part of the guidance.

 

It has been cleared from the verse that although different types of evils had been produced into the Jews, despite reciting the glad tidings about the Last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) in their Holy and Heavenly Books, they remained firm upon the denial. Even then, there were such People present between them, who succeeded in recognizing the Truth leaving the stubbornness and spite. It rained such blessings of Allah Almighty upon those People. Other Jews who used to deny the True Religion to keep up their false dignity, their end would be very bad.   

 

So it is evident that he/she gets the Divine guidance, who leaves the stubbornness, recites the Revelations of Allah Almighty, also falls prostrate before Him at night, believes in Oneness of God Almighty and the Day of Resurrection, escapes from the evils and runs towards the good deeds. Such People will get meed from Allah Almighty. He knows the pious People very well. Therefore, whenever the evils of the Jews are discussed, then these types of sober and abstinent persons are exempted.

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

Verse –113 of 200, Section –12    (Part – 4) 

They are not all alike. Of the People of the Scripture there is a staunch community who recite the Revelations of Allah in the hours of night, falling prostrate (before Him).

Lesson 

 

In the previous lessons, the religious condition, social, economical and political circumstances, and after life result of the People of the Scripture have been checked. Due to one sentence of these verses, the Muslims were taken in for a long time (they remained in deception).

 

Allah Almighty commanded, “They have earned anger from their Lord and provoked”. The Muslims took from it that ‘the Jews have been bereaved of sovereignty and kingdom forever. They will never become the king of any state/government’.

 

In May 1949, an Empire named Israel established with the support of United States of America, United Kingdom and Russia (then Union of Soviet Socialist Republic) upon a small part of holy land Palestine. Now the Muslims imagined, “How did it happen so?” whereas, Allah Almighty had commanded them in these verses clearly that they might escape only in two forms from the wrath, disgrace and wretchedness. Either they grasp (hold fast) the rope of Allah Almighty or make an agreement with other people and nations, and get their support. It is a universal truth that the so-called State of Israel exists; her existence depends upon the base of enmity by other Sovereignty, which suppose the Muslims as their own enemies. Individually the Jews have not too much ability to stand at their own feet.

 

It is being commanded in this verse, “You should not consider the Jews and the Christians equal. Some of them are pious persons also. Their three qualities are being described here. Remaining will be discussed in succeeding verse:

 

  1. There is a staunch community (who are on the straight path).

 

  1.  They recite the Revelations of Allah Almighty in the hours of night and in the silence of night.

 

  1. They also fall prostrate before Allah Almighty.

Reasons Of God’s Anger

LESSON # 408 FROM HOLY QU

Reasons Of God’s Anger

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

Verse –112b of 200, Section –12    (Part – 4)

 

That is because they used to disbelieve the Revelations of Allah, and slew the Prophets wrongfully. That is because they were disobedient and used to transgress.

Zaalika  bi-‘annahum  kaanuu yakfuruuna  bi-‘Aayaatillaahi wa yaqtuluunal-‘ambi-yaaa-‘a  bigayri haqq;  zaalika  bimaa  ‘asaw-wa  kaanuu  ya’-taduun.

 

Image

 

Lesson 

 

The mention of a nation, who earned the anger of Allah Almighty (the Jews), is being made continuously. Following various forms of Divine’s wrath was described in the first part of this verse:

 

  • Ignominy shall be their portion wheresoever they are found.

 

  • They have incurred anger from their Lord. Sovereignty, independence and freedom are not in their luck.

 

  •  Wretchedness, poverty and bankruptcy are laid upon them.

 

There are only two forms to escape from this wrath of the Most Strong Ruler (Allah Almighty):

 

  1. If they grasp (hold fast) the rope of Allah Almighty, follow the Divine law of religion and become His slaves (servants).

 

  1. If they make treaty and promise with other People and nations, and come in with their support.    

 

In this part of the verse, Allah Almighty commands that there are four causes of this situation:

 

  1. They used to disbelieve the Revelations of Allah Almighty, it  means that they used to falsify the Commandments of God Almighty. The signs and miracles, which were revealed, they did not accept them too.

 

  1. They slew the Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon them). Slaughtering of the Prophets (peace be upon them) was not such a minor crime but they committed this crime without any particular reason.

 

  1. They made the evil and the disobedience as their national custom.

 

  1. They used to transgress, it aims that they crossed the Divine’s limits and did not remain bound in the limits of the laws.

 

Entire history of the Jews is evident upon such analysis of their national life. Establishment of the so-called state of Israel itself is living proof of the truth of God’s Word.

Lessons from Holy Qur'an

Displeasure Of God For People Of The Scripture

LESSON # 407 FROM HOLY QUR’AN

Displeasure Of God For People Of The Scripture

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

Verse –112a of 200, Section –12    (Part – 4)

 

Ignominy shall be their portion wheresoever they are found save (where they grasp) a rope from Allah and a rope from men. They have incurred anger from their Lord, and wretchedness is laid upon them.

Zuribat  ‘alayhimuz-zillatu  ‘ayna  maa  suqifuuu ‘illaa  bi-Hablim-minallaahi  wa  Hablim-minannaasi  wa  baaa-‘uu  bi  gazabim-minallaahi  wa zuribat  ‘alay-himul-maskanah.

 

Image

 

Lesson 

 

 Zuribat  – {grievous hurt, is stroke, shall be (their) portion} this Arabic word is also used besides above meanings as “to walk, to affix and to impose”. It has been used for these three meanings in the Holy Qur’an too. Here it has been used as the last meanings of ‘affixed’ or ‘imposed’ (ignominy upon them).

 

Zillatun- (Ignominy), this word is commonly used for humiliation and disgrace. Some disgraced people and nations remain deprived of respect and honor despite their knowledge, wealth and independence. The disgrace and the humiliation surround them. 

 

Hablim-minallaahi  – (a rope or promise from Allah), means unless these people will not make the Divine law of Islam theirs’ own and follow Allah’s Instructions, ignominy will not be kept away from them. (for more explanation please read lesson # 398).

 

Hablim-minannaasi  – (a rope or promise from the people) second condition is fixed that if it is not so, then they would have to enter in the articles of agreement with the human beings. Until when they will not get the support of other nations, will not be able to get rid of the disgrace and humiliation.

 

 

 

 baaa-‘uu  bi  gazabim-minallaahi  –  (They have incurred anger from their Lord), means they came in the fold of Allah’s wrath due to their evil doings and bad deeds, Divine wrath imposed upon them.

 

‘al-maskanah –  (wretchedness) poverty and indigence are also forms of anger and wrath of Allah. The financial misery and the economic breakdown are main causes of disgrace themselves of any nation.

Advice To The People Of The Scripture

LESSON # 406 FROM HOLY QUR’AN

Advice To The People Of The Scripture

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

Verse –110b & 111 of 200, Section –12    (Part – 4)

 

110b.  And if the People of the Scripture had believed it had been better for them. Some of them are believers; but most of them are evil-livers.

 

111.  They will not harm you save a trifling hurt, and if they fight against you they will turn and flee. Then they will not be helped.

110b.  Wa  law  ‘aamana  ‘Ahlul-Kitaabi  lakaana  khayral-lahum.  Min-humul-mu’-minuuna  wa  ‘aksaru-humul-faasiquun.

 

111.  Lany-yazurruukum  ‘illaaa  ‘azaa. Wa  ’iny-yuqaatiluukum  yu-walluukumul-‘adbaar. Summa  laa  yunsaruun.

 

Image

 

Lesson 

 

‘illaaa  ‘azaa – (save a trifling hurt) it means that the Jews will either abuse, or reproach with their tongues or will cause any other trifling hurt. They cannot harm you more than this.

 

Allah Almighty commanded the People of the Scripture in this verse, “If you had believed, it had been better for you, like this you also could join the khayral  ‘ummam  (the best of the nations). You would be honored in the world and got reward in the Hereafter”. But Alas! None of them accepted Islam besides a few persons {for example Abdullah bin Salaam or Negus (the Emperor of Abyssinia) etc}. Despite becoming the truth obvious, they stuck disobedience.  

 

Most people of them are disobedient. Allah Almighty says, “O Muslims! You should not be afraid due to viewing either their more number of army personnel or materially arms and equipment”. It is the promise of Allah Almighty that these disobedient people will never harm you provided that, you prove yourselves as khayral  ‘ummam  the best of the nations in its true meanings. These people can either just abuse, or reproach with their tongues or will cause any other trifling hurt. They neither can overcome you, nor can cause to lose you heavy. Be sure that if they would come to fight with you, they will turn and flee, and they will not get any help from any side. They will be disgraced through the defeat.

 

This foretelling of the Holy Qur’an was completed. During the times of Companions (may Allah be pleased with them) of last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), the People of the Scripture faced depravity like this. They tried their best for the destruction of Islam and Muslims but could not harm the Muslims. Wherever they opposed, ran away after the defeat. In addition, at every occasion Allah Almighty helped the Muslims.

Enjoin The Right Conduct

LESSON # 405 FROM HOLY QUR’AN

Enjoin The Right Conduct

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

Verse –110a of 200, Section –12    (Part – 4)

 

Ye are the best community that hath been raised up for mankind, ye enjoin right conduct and forbid the wrong; and ye believe in Allah.

kuntum  khayra ‘ummatin  ‘ukhrijat linnaasi  ta’-muruuna  bil-ma’-ruufi  wa  tan-hawna ‘anil-munkari  wa  tu’-minuuna  billaah.

 

Image

 

Lesson 

 

In the beginning of previous section it was commanded that “Yaaa-‘ayyuhal-laziina  ‘aa-manut-taqullaaha  haqqa  tuqaa-tihii”   (O ye who believe! Observe your duty to Allah with right observance). Some such matters were explained during the description, about which Allah Almighty ordered to do them. Moreover, some such matters were discussed which were forbidden by Him. Then reward for the righteous people and the punishment for the sinners was mentioned. Again, the subject is being turned towards the beginning. That is to say; “O Muslims! Allah Almighty has declared you as the best community out of the entire communities. It had been destined in His knowledge that you would get excellence over all other communities. Moreover, this news had been delivered to the former Prophets (peace be upon them). As the Last Prophet, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) is the most distinguished of the Prophets (peace be upon them), likewise his (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) community is also the most distinguished and superior of all the other communities and nations. Because this nation has been bestowed the noblest Messenger ((grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), the most comprehensive and perfect religious law, and the doors of Knowledge and Science have been opened for it.

 

khayra ‘ummatin –  (best community) the Muslim Nation was given the title of khayra ‘ummatin  too besides the Moderate Nation, the Community of Abraham and several other honorable  titles.

 

ukhrijat linnaasi –(raised up for mankind) means that this community will bring the entire nations of the world at the door of Faith by preaching and inviting the people. It will forbid the wrong deeds. This Muslim nation will prevent the people from bad deeds by the tongue, the hand, the pen and by the sword. Each type of strife and struggle, and a Muhammadan religious war (Jihad) is obligatory upon it.

 

One more characteristic of this best nation has been described here that it believes in Allah Almighty. All good qualities, which are found in the Muslim nation with the correct management, those were not held in any previous nation. The Companion Umer (May Allah be pleased with him) said, “whoever of you wants to join this nation (the best of nations), he should fulfill it’s all conditions, means ‘Amr  bil-ma’-ruufi, (enjoining the right conduct) and Nahii  ‘anil-munkar, (to forbid the wrong), and Believe in Allah. It can happen so, at that time, when each person will dress himself first because he cannot correct others without dressing itself.

Lesson

Good qualities of the Muslims and bad qualities of the Infidels were discussed in the previous lessons including their end. Now it is being commanded strictly, “Don’t consider these entire Words (Holy Qur’an) as a lie. These are quite true and right, which We cause to hear you through Our Messenger” (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him). Allah Almighty does not desire to tyrannize His creatures in any form. The meanings of the tyranny should not be taken here as we use them in common. Because Allah Almighty does not do as we do in this world. According to our imagination, there may be four kinds of the tyranny:

 

  • If Allah Almighty sends such severe orders, purpose of them is to molest only.
  • That, the person is punished, who deserves His Mercy.
  • That, the person is punished much severely, who committed a little sin.
  • That, the person is not remunerated properly according to his/hers goodness.

 

Allah Almighty will never tyrannize like above four tyrannies, because His each Order is only for the training of human beings and His each matter is suitable exactly according to philosophy and advisability.

 

The earth, the skies and the entire existing of the world are in His hand.Therefore, there is no question regarding tyrannizing and injustice. Allah Almighty is the Creator of all the creatures. He fulfills their requirements. Their life, death, Prosperity, misery, pain and pleasure depend on Him.  Indeed, there are so many kinds of torments, which the human being has to meet with. He has to face many difficulties, calamities and misfortunes, and he has to go also through many tests. At that time, he considers that the mountains have attacked upon him. He begins to curse his fate. It is the fact that Allah Almighty never tyrannizes anyone. A humankind should keep the forbearance and be settled on the virtue. He should remain steadfast on the right path and pray from Allah Almighty for himself always that his feet do not tremble.

Believers Will Dwell In The Mercy of Allah

LESSON # 403 FROM HOLY QUR’AN

Believers Will Dwell In The Mercy of Allah

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

Verse –107 of 200, Section –11    (Part – 4)

 

And as for those whose faces have been whitened, lo! in the Mercy of Allah they dwell for ever.

Wa   ‘ammal-laziinab-yaz-zat   wujuuhuhum   fafii   rahma-tillaah.  Hum   fiihaa   khaaliduun.   

 

Image

 

Lesson 

 

After describing the result of infidels and deniers in the previous verse, now the condition of those people is being explained, whose faces will be whitened with the Light of Faith and Piety on the Day of Resurrection.  Allah Almighty will let them entered in His Mercy and provide the place in the House of pleasure and comfort.

 

The real truth of any matter becomes conspicuous by comparing. Therefore, value of the righteousness appears when vicious results of badness would have been cleared. Moreover, the value of the whiteness increases when taken a look at the blackness. Hence, these two types of verses accompany. In the former verse, it has been described that the people, who either didn’t embrace Islam even after listening to the invitation of the last Messenger, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) and the Holy Qur’an, or they just admitted by tongue the Truth of the Prophet (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him), but heartily they remained infidels and in spite of believing in the good news of earlier Scripture, they had been falsifying the Prophet of Islam (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him). Allah Almighty will punish them severely.

 

Now those people are being mentioned, who accepted Islam by their true nature. They believed in Allah Almighty, admitted the Prophet Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) as a true and the last Messenger, put the teachings of Holy Quran and the tradition of Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) into practice. Allah Almighty will bring them to the Heaven. Every kind of Blessings is present there. They will live there for endless period. They will never be destroyed there.

 

Allah Almighty compares between the Believer and the Infidel, the Heaven and the Hell, so that the sensible people would have to learn from it and become eligible for the Heaven in the Hereafter by passing good-working life in this world. Nevertheless, commonly the human being tries to collect the worldly benefits because he has no more belief in Allah Almighty and the Day of Judgment. Perhaps he considers that these things have no reality. Otherwise, it can never be possible that even after such palpable and clear explanation, any person goes towards the badness in spite of the goodness, does not think the lie as a lie and sin as a sin, and remains engaged in plundering and ravaging unlawfully, and be present in the Court of Allah Almighty after becoming disgraced. May Allah Almighty save us from the disgrace, bestow us success in the world and the Hereafter, even if we face some difficulties and sufferings in the world, give us courage to bear with them, so that the permanent and endless life of the Hereafter would not effect.

The Blackened Faces

LESSON # 402 FROM HOLY QUR’AN

The Blackened Faces

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

Verse –106 of 200, Section –11    (Part – 4)

 

 

On the Day when (some) faces will be whitened and (some) faces will be blackened; and as for those whose faces have been blackened, it will be said unto them: Disbelieved ye after your (profession of) belief? Then taste the punishment for that ye disbelieved. Yawma  tab-yazzu  wujuu-hunw-wa  taswaddu  wujuuh,  fa-‘ammallazii-naswaddat  wu-juu-huhum  ‘akafartum-  ba’-da  ‘iimaanikum  fazuuqul-‘azaaba  bimaa  kuntum  takfuruun.   

Image

 

Lesson 

 

It has been mentioned earlier that human deeds are not wasted. Their appearance remains permanent. They are enumerated by Allah Almighty. The faces of the people will disclose their deeds on the Day of Judgment. The persons who would have passed their lives with good deeds, the Light of Belief and God fearing will be shining upon their faces. Their faces will become white. They will be in much respect and dignity, and seen very pleasure. Contrary to them, those persons who remained involved in evils and sins throughout their lives in this world, lead in evil-working and black deeds, at that time their faces will become black with blackness of their infidelity, immorality, adulteration and hypocrisy. As it were, the face of every person will become mirror of his/her inside.

 

Allah Almighty will ask each infidel, Hypocrite and Renegade, “Did you become Infidel after believing, why did you adopt infidelity in substitution of Faith”? Those people would not have any reply of this question. Their heads will bow due to shame and repentance. They will fall in the abyss of disgrace and infamy, and they will be caused to hear the command of punishment. In retaliation of the infidelity, they will fall in the severe anguish and enter into the Hell, where they will remain and rot forever.

It is the condition of the Hereafter, where each person would have to clear the accounts of his/her entire life of this world, where he/she will get permanent either reward or punishment. But each person would have to face the results of his/her deeds in this world too. Moreover, their faces are mirrored of their lives. If any person commits evil, then the evils begin to show themselves upon his/her face. The tokens of humiliation and bashfulness appear. On the contrary, as the result of the goodness, he/she gets the fame and gloriousness. The people calling out aloud say, “he/she is of the Paradise, the Light rains on his/her face, the illumination glitters from one’s eyes”. His/her forehead becomes glorious.
