Lesson # 1046 from Holy Qur’aan

God will chastise them at your hands-2

Surah ‘TAWBAH or BARAAA-‘AH (REPENTANCE) – Chapter – 9)

Stage – 2, Verses – 14 & 15 of 129, Section – 2 of 16 (Part – 10)


In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful


It is commanded: You dealt with a lot of patience and tried your best to live together with all people, but they (the Infidels) did not desire to live together. This madness have been contained in their hearts that the people should obey only them and do not listen to any other. They wish: The people should acknowledge our superiority and live as our obedient servants. They should pay gifts and obligations before our idols, accept us as their spiritual and religious guide, beg earnestly from us. But it is their ridiculous idea and a vain.


Entire human beings in the world are equal and everyone has a right to choose the way after meditation, whichever he/she wants to adopt. However, they should bear in mind that any right of any person should not be violated, and should not try to be superior to any mankind, because God Almighty has given different powers to every individual, and every power demands to keep its opponent pressed.


If a way of shove/clash is opened among these powers then no one can live in the world with peace. Therefore, it is the way of success that entire people should accept it mutually that Omnipotence is only God Almighty, and they all should bow before Him, and use their powers for sympathy and supplying the wants of one another according to the Command of God Almighty, and consider it that these powers are not of their own. These are bestowed by Him. He has bestowed a separate power to every individual which is suitable for him/her, so that it should be helpful for every person, and all people become a collective human power, which should be useful for every individual at the time of necessity.


Islam desired the same, but Alas! These people have collected their powers separately in their limited circles, and every community wished to overcome all others keeping them under their influence. Well! Nothing happens according to their wishes. God Almighty has appointed us (the Muslims) to punish them. So, fight and hit them so much that they come back to their senses.


It is the Will of Allah Almighty that the secrets of theirs, their thoughts and deeds should be disclosed, and the people begin to consider them contemptible. It is necessary for you that you should prove yourselves before the world that you are sympathizers, supporters of good views, spreaders of good works and preventers from evil and wicked deeds. God Almighty will help you against them.


The reason of command for fighting is that God Almighty desires to compensate and provide you fully against those distresses and difficulties which you suffered by them till now and have borne much molestation. The hearts of the Believers should be satisfied which were filled with sorrow and suffocation, and entire inflammation of their hearts’ anger should scamper.


God Almighty wants to punish them by means of your hands against their evil deeds. If any people of them repented with true hearts from wicked deeds, they would be included in well-doers with you. Allah Almighty will forgive their errors and admit them in His chosen group of people.


Allah Almighty is Aware of everything and knows the matters of every individual, which are in the hearts. He will behave them according to their capability. He is acquainted of situation and condition of everything and every work. He will give rewards to everyone suitably and will bestow upon them more with His Mercy.
