Lesson # 601 From Holy Qur’aan
Know the Rightful Owners of Hell
Surah Maaa-‘idah (the Table Spread) – Chapter – 5)
Verses–9&10 of 120, Section – 2 of 16 (Part–6)–Stage – 2
In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
|9. Allaah hath promised those who believe and do good works: Theirs will be forgiveness and immense reward.
10. And they who disbelieve and deny Our Revelations, such are rightful owners of Hell.
|9. Wa-‘adAllaa-hullaziina ‘aamanuu wa ‘amilus-Saali-haati, lahum-magfiratunw-wa ‘ajrun ‘aziim.
10. Wallaziina kafaruu wa kaz-zabuu bi-‘Aayaa-tiNaaa ‘ulaaa-‘ika ‘As-haabul-Jahiim.
‘As-haabu – (companions, friends), it is plural of Saahib, which means “a follower (who lives with), a comrade”. Simply its meanings also are “Owners” as “owner of the wealth”, likewise, meanings of ‘As-haabul-Jahiim will be “rightful owners of Hell”.
It has been being described in the previous verses continuously that the believers should do gladly all those works, which are compulsory to be done by them because Allaah Almighty has bestowed upon them uncountable favors, kindness and blessings. It has become incumbent for you to obey Him, when you have believed in Him as your Creator, Lord and Worshipped. Then He caused to listen to you His some commands. After that He told summary of entire religion in two sentences, from which it is known that the Muslims have to do two kinds of deeds.
- Worship of God (Allaah Almighty)
- Justice and equity with the creature
Allaah Almighty has promised the believers that He will forgive their errors mercifully. And not only this, but He has also promised that they will be given big rewards as retaliation of their good works and they will live in the Gardens peacefully, satisfactorily and cheerfully.
Therefore it should not be considered that there is no fruit of good works in the world. Allaah Almighty will direct the good-doers towards the Straight Path by saving them from mistakes in the world too, as well as on the Day of Resurrection, many big rewards will be for them and they will live happily forever.
Then it has been commanded, “Those people, who disbelieved in Allaah Almighty, denied His Revelations and did not acknowledge the advice of His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), such people should understand carefully that the end of their evildoings will not be good. May be they are given some relaxation in the world, so that perhaps they believe anytime by using their wisdom and leave infidelity. But after death, if they died in the form of disbelieving, then they will be rightful owners of Hell and will become fuel of Fire.
