  1. Fa-‘aataa-humullaahu  sa-waabad-dunyaa  wa  husna  sa-waabil- ‘Aakhirah.  Wallaahu  yuhibbul-Muhsiniin.

 

Lesson

 

It is being narrated about those goody people (may Allah be pleased with them), who cooperated with the Prophets and the Messengers (peace be upon them) in the Path of Allah Almighty, that they do neither evade to sacrifice their wealth, body and soul, nor show laziness, nor feel weakness, nor they are restrained, and they remain steadfast. Even then, they are not proud. They use to bend their head of submission and gratefulness before Allah Almighty. Their method of praying from Allah Almighty is much big proof of their good disposition itself.

 

They begged most humbly, sincerely with their hearts and respectfully, “O our Lord! ‘ig-fir  lanaa  zunuubanaa – (conceal our sins and evil doings, draw the curtain of Your Mercy on our mistakes and ambiguities, pardon us from our weaknesses and forgive us for our sins). ‘israa-fanaa  fiii  ‘amrinaa  – (keep our wasted efforts secret also and forgive). sabbit  ‘aqdaamanaa – (make our foothold sure) bestow us steadfastness. wan-surnaa  ‘alal- qawmil-kaafiriin – {and give us victory over the disbelieving folk, who do not believe in You, who are against Your Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) and who are enemy of Your Religion (Islam)}.

 

It is ordained as reply of the above-mentioned supplication, “Allah gave them the reward of the world and the good reward of the Hereafter. Allah loves those whose deeds are good”.

Lessons from Holy Qur'an

Messengers And Their Companions

LESSON # 433 FROM HOLY QUR’AN

Messengers And Their Companions

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

Verse –146 of 200, Section –15 (Part – 4)

 

And with how many a Prophet have there been a number of devoted men who fought (beside him). They quailed not for aught that befell them in the Way of Allah, nor did they weaken, nor were they brought low. And Allah loveth the steadfast.    

Wa  ka-‘ayyim-min-nabiyyin-qaatala, ma-‘ahuu  Rib-biyyuuna  kasiir.  Famaa  wahanuu  limaaa’asaabahum  fii  Sabiilillaahi  wa  maa  za-‘ufuu  wa  mastakaanuu.  Wallaahu  yuhibbus-Saabiriin.    

 

Lesson

 

This topic begins from the previous two verses that the Prophets and the Messengers came in the world and passed away. Like this, last Messenger, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) was sent for a prescribed period. But his (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) religion will remain till the General Resurrection, and the Scripture brought by him will remain a source of Guidance always for the nations and persons of the world. Therefore, it will be opposite of the wisdom and sense to show the weakness and laziness in the matter of the religion. Those people who appeared suspicion due to listening false news about martyrdom of Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) in the Battlefield of ‘Uhud, they were wrong. The Religion belongs to Allah Almighty and He is the Ever living, the Self-Subsisting by whom all subsist. Mortality does not overtake Him.

 

Continuing this chain of the Word, it has been described in this verse about the Prophets and the Messengers (peace be upon them) and their good disposition followers (companions) (may Allah be pleased with them). So that the followers (‘Ummah) of the last Messenger, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) may get lesson from them.

 

Rib-biyyuuna – (the devoted men), this word has been derived from the word ‘Rabb’ that is added to a noun of Allah Almighty. Rib-biyyuun means those persons who have relation with their Lord, seekers and lovers of Allah Almighty. The people used to say the Jews scholars as Rabbii, plural of which is Rib-biyyuun.  

 

It is being commanded, “Often that the devotee men and pious servants fought against the enemies of Allah Almighty supporting the Prophets (peace be upon them). Good or bad, each type of times come in the war. Some times one group wins and the other is defeated and some times opposite to it. But their steadfast feet never trembled. Their spirit and strength never accounted for. They suffered thousand times, but neither they were lazy, nor they had shown weakness and nor they went down. Allah Almighty keeps friends likewise steadfast and stable temperament people. The Muslims would have to produce these virtues in to them to become beloved of Lord Almighty”.
