LESSON # 465 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
Tokens For The Men Of Understanding
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter – 3)
Verses –190 & 191 of 200, Section –20 (Part – 4)
|190. Lo! in the creation of the heavens and the earth and (in) the difference of night and day are tokens (of His Sovereignty) for men of understanding-
191. Such as remember Allah, standing, sitting, and reclining, and consider the creation of the heavens and the earth, and say: Our Lord! Thou createdst not this in vain. Glory be to Thee! Persevere us from the doom of Fire.
190. ‘Inna fii khal-qis-samaa-waati wal-‘arz wakh-tilaafil-layli wan-nahaari la-‘Aayaatil-‘ulil-‘albaab.
191. ‘Allaziina yaz-kuruunal-laaha qiyaamanw-wa qu-‘uu-danw-wa ‘alaa junuubihim wa yatafakkaruuna fii khal-qis-samaawaati wal-‘arz. Rab-banaa maa khalaqta haazaa baatilaa. Sub-haanaka faqinaa ‘azaaban-Naar.
When any person of understanding thinks about the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the system of rising the sun in the east (the day) and its setting in the west (the night), then he has to believe that an Omnipotent exists who created the entire existing things. There is no such thing, which may dare before Him (the Creator) to strike out from its circle. Such people, who meditate, use to bear Allah Almighty in their minds morning and evening in each condition, and they do not be careless from remembering recital of His Praise and Names.
The people who think deeply say after remembrance and close attention, “O Our Lord! You have not created worthless and without any purpose this entire nature of the creatures”. Surely, this order of strange and skillful administrations will end at any magnificent result, as though, from here, their intellect thoughts about the Day of Resurrection, which is the last natural and logical conclusion of the present life.
We have known from these verses that thinking and meditating about the earth and the skies, and other things created by Allah Almighty can be advantageous and fruitful when resultantly the mankind turn their attention towards His remembrance and the Day of Resurrection. Those people, who incline toward material love after meditating in the above-mentioned things, they cannot be ‘ulil-‘albaab “the men of understanding” (wise and learned persons), whether the people of the world consider them the great scholars of the religion. Uncountable blandishments appear in front of us in our daily life; when we observe them, we are astonished and lost in wonder. We should understand from this entire God’s Work that at last we would have to be present in the Court of the CREATOR. Everybody should be prepared and earn instantly, which would be useful for that ‘on the Doomsday’.
