Mercy, Grace and Guidance for Believers

Lesson # 590 From Holy Qur’aan

Mercy, Grace and Guidance for Believers

Surah Nisaaa’ (Women) – Chapter – 4)

Verses –174 & 175 of 176, Section – 24/24 (Part – 6)

174.  O mankind! Surely hath a proof from your Lord come unto you, and We have sent down unto you a clear light. 


175.  As for those who believe in Allaah, and hold fast unto Him, then He will cause to enter into His mercy and grace, and will guide them unto Him by a Straight Path.             

174.  Yaaa-‘ayyu-hannaasu  qad  jaaa-‘akum  Bur-haanum-mir-Rabbikum  wa  ‘anzalNaaa  ‘ilay-kum  Nuuram-mubiinaa.


175.  Fa  ‘ammal-laziina  ‘aamanuu  BIllaahi  wa’-tasamuu  biHii  fasa-yud-khiluhum  fii  Rah-matim-minhu  wa  Fazlinw-wa  yah-diihim-  ‘ilayhi  Siraatam-Musta        qiimaa.       



Bur-haanun – (a proof, a document, a certificate), such a final token and true proof (here it signifies towards; Holy Qur’aan), after which no doubt remains further and acting upon which becomes compulsory.

Nuuram-mubiinun – (a clear light), it aims the Light of Holy Qur’aan, the Word of Allaah Almighty. ’A’-tasamuu – (who hold it fast), its origin is ‘A’-tasaam, which has been derived from ‘asmat, which means ‘rescue, defense’. ‘A’-tasaam means ‘to hold someone or something fast’, as any drowning person catches anything strongly to save himself.


Different forms of Inspiration and about their truth have been mentioned in the first verse. After that, it has been described that the Last Messenger (Muhammad) (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) has come into you with Original and True Word. It is good for you, if you believe in Him {(Muhammad) (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him)}.


You would harm nothing of Allaah Almighty, if you would not believe. However you will harm yourselves in case of disbelief. An important thing has been told by addressing the entire human beings, “Yaaa-‘ayyu-hannaasu  qad  jaaa-‘akum  Bur-haanum-mir-Rabbikum  wa  ‘anzalNaaa  ‘ilay-kum  Nuuram-mubiinaa” (O mankind! Surely, We have sent down unto you a clear light (a Book of Instructions i.e. Holy Qur’aan), which has a proof from your Lord, which has no doubt, anxiety or hesitation in itself. That is a bright, open and splendid illumination and inspiration, in which good and bad can be seen clearly and separately. Those people see the Truth in its Light very clearly, whose eyes are powerful and eyesight is correct. They adopt the reality at once after comprehension. On the contrary those people, who are unable to understand the Right, either their vision is spoiled or they have any defect in their eyes.


The good and dutiful people, who have become of only One God (Allaah Almighty) and do not trust in any other except Him, and hold the Holy Qur’aan fast, He will cause to enter such people into His mercy and grace, His Bounty will surround them from each side, and He will guide them unto a Straight Path.
