Rabbanaa ta-waffanaa  ma-‘al-‘Abraar

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

Verses –192 & 193 of 200, Section –20 (Part – 4)


192.  Our Lord! Whom Thou causest to enter the Fire: him indeed Thou hast confounded. And for evildoers there will be no helpers.

 193.  Our Lord! Lo! we have heard a crier calling unto Faith: “Believe ye in your Lord!” So we believed. Our Lord! Therefore forgive us our sins, and remit from us our evil deeds, and make us die the death of the righteous.

 192.  Rabbanaaa ‘innaka  man-tud-khilin-Naara  faqad  ‘akh-zaytah.  Wa  maa  lizzaalimiina  min  ‘ansaar.

193.  Rabbanaaa ‘inna-naa  sami’-naa  Munaa-diyany-yunaa-dii  lil-‘iimaani  ‘an  ‘aaminuu  bi-Rabbikum  fa-‘aamannaa.  Rabbanaa  fagfir  lanaa  zunuu-banaa  wa kaffir-‘annaa   sayyi-‘aatinaa  wa  ta-waffanaa  ma-‘al-‘Abraar.    



Those people, who either do not meditate in the tokens of Allah Almighty, or do not relate His Greatness after even meditation and deep thought, or incline towards the love of material due to becoming materialist, they will enter the Fire (Hell). As many days a person will remain in the Hell, so much he will be confounded. To whom Allah Almighty wishes to put in the Fire, he cannot find any helper so that he may be saved.

The people, who attain correct results after meditation and consideration in the Omnipotence of Allah Almighty, they turn their attention towards Lord Almighty, keep Him in their minds fresh. They say, “We have heard a crier towards Allah Almighty {Merciful Messenger (grace, glory, blessing and peace be upon him)} calling to guide us towards the goodness, Belief in Unity and worship of one God, and the Straight Path, so we inclined and believed”.

These people pray, “Our Lord! Forgive our big sins, and remit from us our evil deeds, and make us die the death of the righteous, keep us along with them and reproduce us on the Day of Resurrection with them”.

We should learn the lesson from these verses, try to understand the knowledge of the things created by Allah Almighty, and then keep remembering Allah Almighty with our tongues and hearts during standing, sitting, moving and reclining, consider the creation of the heavens and the earth, and say, “Our Lord! Glory be to Thee! Persevere us from the doom of Fire, forgive us our sins, remit from us our evil deeds, and make us die the death of the righteous, who invite towards the guidance and the goodness, whether the people do not give ear towards their call. Allah Almighty shall confer the rewards for their goodness.
