137. Qad khalat min- qablikum Suna-nun fasiiruu fil-‘arzi fan- zuruu kayfa kaana ‘aaqibatul-mukazzibiin.

It has been stated in these verses that many nations have elapsed before the times of last Prophet, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). Major incidents have happened and the Law of Allah Almighty has manifested. Those people from the former nations, who gripped up their lions for enmity with the Prophets (peace be upon them) and accusing of falsehood the truth, turned away from confirmation and obedience of Allah Almighty and His Prophet (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), used to do evils and wrong. How bad their end was? Those persons, who followed the right and supported the Prophets (peace be upon them), how much peace and blessings were revealed upon them? If you have any doubt in it, then observe the signs of destruction of the disbelievers by traveling in the earth, which have been scattered everywhere even today.
The Muslims learn also from the previous events and conclusions. They should not be disappointed due to cruelties and oppression of the infidels or their casual defeat, because the Just shall overcome at last, and only the Muslims will conquer. The groups of the people will take shelter in embrace of Islam very soon gradually. This practice of Allah Almighty has remained from the very beginning that victory is only of the Right.
These contents are being described in the Holy Qur’an. The people who fear from Allah Almighty, acquire guidance and advice listening to these subjects. Nevertheless, those persons, who do not have His fear in their hearts, they cannot get any advantage from such advice.
The Holy Qur’an has prestige of universal guidance. It guides the human beings to find the road, which had been lost by them, (it shows the Way of Guidance to every nation during every time). Incidents described in it bring us also to the Straight Path even today; the scholars may succeed by following them. Three characteristics of Holy Qur’an have been described especially in these verses:
- It has a particular message for the people.
- It is a guidance for the human beings.
- It is a warning lesson and source of guidance for the sober.
Those people, who falsify such Holy Scripture, they will remain unfortunate in the world as well as on the Day of Resurrection.
