Lesson # 1057 from Holy Qur’aan

Country-wise division is for establishing the system

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

Stage – 2, Verse – 24 of 129, Section – 3 of 16 (Part – 10)                                                             


In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful


(Continued from the last post)

Principle # 3.  The person, who will deny intentionally any of the matters mentioned in previous lesson or oppose it, and by his committing so, which loss or damage will be suffered by collective life, unity and peace, he will be treated legally.


Principle # 4.  Islamic community is ready every time for co-operation and alliance with all those human beings of the world; who are ready to co-operate with this community. No war will be fought against them in any condition, until they use force or violate improperly as the idolaters of Makkah committed in the beginning, whether its ways and sources are different.


Principle # 5.  Native country or nation etc. is a division of the population of the world for establishing the system easily. Islam welcomes them till the time; they agree upon the above mentioned Principles and these all things do not become cause of mutual unreasonable tyranny.


The way of earning the wealth and its distribution, Personal Property etc.

If earning method of wealth and its distribution is inflicting pain to the people, then it is duty of the Islamic Society that they should amend and correct the laws concerning this matter. Which nation is ready to amend and correct the laws unselfishly, Islamic community is ready to work along with them mutually, because there is no such command of Islam which prevents from doing good and the aim of which is cause of improvement of the common people. Moreover, Islam guides to join and help those people, who are engaged in such acts.


Those non-Muslims, who live together with Muslims with peace and reconciliation, these Muslims are also their compatriots and language-fellows, so they can be counted as their nation-fellow too. Neither they can molest them without grounds and nor they can fight them.


Above mentioned five Principles can be understood from these two Chapters i.e. Surah Baraaa-‘ah and previous to it Surah ‘Anfaal. Organization for Interior and Foreign relationships has been cleared and determined in it.


In fact, these are the principles, which were produced before the people of Makkah in the beginning, but they did not accept them due to their stupidity and ignorance. The Messenger of God Almighty has been commanded in the Holy Qur-‘aan: Say! I make an organization with you in the best way, provided; you give up mischief, perversion, only own pomp and show and narrow mindedness.


God Almighty commands in verse # 23 of Chapter 42 (Surah Shuuraa): Qul-laaa  ‘as-‘alukum  ‘alayhi  ‘ajran  ‘illal-mawaddata  fil-qurbaa. {Say (O Muhammad, unto mankind)! I ask of you no fee for it, save loving kindness among kinsfolk)}. That is to say; I do not demand from you any retaliation of my work. My only desire is that you must bear in mind mutual co-operation, relationship and neighborhood etc. and give up unreasonable opposing and molesting others.


Think for a while! These instructions are for them who have rejected Islam. Messenger of God Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) is ready to dwell with them and make an organization along with them.
