Lesson # 743 From the Noble Quran

Adopt the way of life, which Quran teaches

Surah ‘Al-‘An-‘aam (Cattle) – Chapter – 6)–Stage – 2

Verses –82 of 165, Section – 9 of 20 (Part – 7)


In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Those who believe and obscure not their belief by wrongdoing, theirs is safety, and they are rightly guided. ‘Alla-ziina  ‘aamanuu  wa  lam  yal-bisuuu  ‘iimaanahum-  bi-zulmin  ‘ulaaa-‘ika  lahumul-‘amnu  wa  hum-Muh-taduun.          

images (64)


Lam  yal-bisuuu – (do not obscure, do not intermix, do not amalgamate). Bi-zulmin – (by wrongdoing), here it aims “the act; due to which, disorder occurs in the belief” as “belief in a plurality of God, disobedience of Allah Almighty, to ask someone for protection instead of God, steadfastness upon wicked deeds etc.”


Muh-taduun – (the rightly guided), it is the passive participle which has been derived from ‘ahtadaaa’. The origin of ‘ahtadaaa’ is hidaayat. Hisaayat means “to show the correct way, to guide towards the straight path”. ‘Ahtadaaa’ means “to find the right way”.


The Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) of Allaah Almighty was commanded in the previous verse that He should tell them: Why should I fear your gods. These helpless (idols) are lifeless and feeble. I should fear Allah Almighty Who has full power and strength. While you do not fear such Powerful God, then what is need of Mine to fear your helpless gods?


Then it was asked: Tell Me (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) if you have some intelligence and wisdom; whether are you in danger or am I? It is evident that your gods can never mar Me and nothing of Mine. So I do not have any fear of them, but Allaah Almighty can punish you in this world as well as in the Hereafter, so you are in danger every time. Quote now! Whether thoughtlessness and peace should be to Me or you? The reply of this question has been manifested very clearly in this verse.


It is commanded that the persons who believed in Allaah Almighty and had faith heartily in it that there is none able to be worshipped but Him only, and then insisted upon it and believed, and then did not committed any such act due to which any confusion occurs in the belief. For those people there is ease, comfort, rest and peace forever, because the person, whose Protector is Allaah Almighty, none can harm him. These are the people who are rightly guided, and the person, who goes the right path, escapes from the distresses of the way and after reaching his destination, is awarded with comfort and peace.


It can be understood clearly from this verse that there are uncountable confusions in the artificial things of the world. the person, who desires to be saved from distresses and reaches any such place, where he may avail all sorts of ease and comfort, then he should obey the Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) and believe in Allaah Almighty and then adopt the way of life, about which the Noble Qur’aan guided.


If anyone saved his/her Belief till death, certainly would reach the place of comfort and satisfaction. And he/she will also obtain deliverance from useless confusions in the world.
