Lesson # 856 from the Noble Quran
Which will someone devise, that will fail him
Surah ‘A’-RAAF (The Heights) – Chapter – 7)
Stage – 2, Verse –53b of 206, Section – 6 of 24 (Part – 8)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
|On the Day when the fulfillment thereof cometh, those who were before forgetful thereof will say: The Messengers of our Lord did bring the Truth! Have we any intercessors, that they may intercede for us? Or can we be returned (to life on earth), that we may act otherwise than we used to act? They have lost their souls, and that which they devised hath failed them.||Yawma ya’-tii ta’-wiiluhuu yaquulul-laziina nasuuhu min- qablu qad jaaa- ‘at Rusulu Rabbinaa bil-haqq. Fahal-lanaa min- shufa-‘aaa-‘a fayashfa-‘uu lanaaa ‘aw nu-raddu fana’-mala gayral-lazii kunnaa na’-mal. Qad khasiruuu ‘anfusahum wa zalla ‘anhum-maa kaanuu yafta-ruun.|
Consequence of the Believers and the disbelievers was expounded with complete detail in previous verses. In fact, it is the main aim mentioned in the entire Holy Qur’aan, which is required to be understood, that if any individual desires own advantage and improvement, then it is necessary for him/her to move on the Path, which has been established by Allah Almighty through His Messengers (peace be upon Them) and Scriptures for the human beings. The last Messenger of God Almighty, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) and the last Scripture, the Praised Criterion (Holy Qur’aan) have placed before the world clearly, and caused to know the people thoroughly with every best method. Final summary of its teachings is: Those people who will act according to the Revelations of Holy Qur’aan, will be sent to the Garden for dwelling, whereas, on the contrary, those who will disobey its commands, their abode will be the Fire of the Hell.
It is commanded that none can be saved from the death. After death, everything will come before everyone and then they will be sure that; that was hundred per cent correct, which was mentioned in the Revelations of Holy Qur’aan. At that time, it will come out from every evildoer’s mouth spontaneously: Truly! It was very glaring omission from us. Prophets and Messengers of Allah Almighty (peace be upon Them) used to say the Truth, but we ignored Their Sayings always being involved in the dithering of the world.
On the Day of Resurrection, when the disbelievers will see with their eyes those matters, which they had forgotten in the world, will be confounded and they will be unable to find any form of escaping from the agony. Being disappointed they will cry: Would that, someone had saved us today from such misfortune, which is breaking down our nerves and had interceded for us in the Court of Allah Almighty OR we had been returned to life on earth, so that we might have shown doing good and fixing deeds. But at that time they will have no chance. They would have lost the opportunity of the world and ensnared their soul in the disaster due to wicked deeds and ruined themselves. Today (on the Judgment Day), their falsehood, which they used to devise in the world, will never be useful. Their companion will be none there except grief, anxiety, trouble, pain, fear and despair.
