Lesson

 

Those people who did not value the commandments of God’s Last Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam), they lost their religion as well as relinquished from their world too within a few days. But some people ran straightway as soon as they heard the voice of God’s obedient Servant and His Last Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) saying Labbayk, and they gripped up their loins for His (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) help. After that, other people followed them also, and they began to enter in the circle of Islam one by one. They got success in the world and in the Hereafter too; they deserved favors and honors of God Almighty.

 

After describing the circumstances of the opposite people, in this verse; conditions of those people have been explained who accepted the invitation of Islam. There were some classes into them also. Some of them were those who embraced Islam as soon as they heard, but some people were those who entered in Islam slowly and gradually.

 

It is commanded: Those first people; who led for entering in Islam; as soon as they heard the Voice of the Caller (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam), some of which people were Emigrants of Makkah and some Inhabitants of Madinah, plus those, who entered in Islam one by one sincerely and honestly after them, Allah Almighty is well pleased with all of them and they are well pleased with Allah Almighty. That is to say; Allah Almighty liked their purity and honesty, and leaving everything they also got support of Allah Almighty. They got ready to suffer from difficulties in His obedience. For all of them; God Almighty has made the flourishing and green Gardens ready; underneath which rivers flow, wherein they will abide for ever. In fact it is the biggest success.

Blessings of Allah’s Messenger

Lesson # 1134 from Holy Qur-’aan

Blessings of Allah’s Messenger

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

Stage – 2, Verse – 99 of 129, Section – 12 of 16 (Part – 11)

BisMillaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim

In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

 

99.  And among the wandering Arabs are those who believe in Allah and the Last Day and take that which they expend to be a means of bringing them near to Allah and the Blessings of the Messenger.  Lo! Verily it is means of nearness for them. Allah will bring them into His Mercy. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. 99.  Wa  minal-‘A’-raabi  many-yu’-minu  Billaahi  wal-Yawmil-‘Aakhiri  wa  yattakhizu  maa  yunfiqu  quru-baatin  ‘indAllaahi  wa  Salawaatir-Rasuul.  ‘Alaaa  ‘innahaa  qurbatul-lahum.  Sayud-khilu-humUllaahu  fii RahmatiH.  ‘InnAllaaha  Gafuurur-Rahiim.    

 

Lesson

 

Quru-baatin – (nearness), this word is plural of qurbatun, which means “nearness”. Here it aims “a means of nearness”.

 

Salawaatun – (the Blessings), it is plural of the word Salaatun. Prayers of Sage and Pious people for others are called Salawaat, praying, Du’aa).

 

It was described earlier that some wandering Arabs are unfortunate from the side of their good manners; being deprived of civilized surroundings, education and training. If they have to expend anything for the Cause of Allah Almighty, they make faces and curse the Muslims that: they should be ruined, they give us trouble.

 

Its reason is that they are ignorant from their Creator, Allah Almighty; and consider that only they are everything. If they believe in Allah Almighty, accounts of the Day of Resurrection, and reward or punishment against good or evil deeds, then it is impossible that they may talk so stupidly.

 

Contrary to them, some villagers/wandering Arabs are good also. They are not influenced from bad atmosphere of the village due to their good nature. They are sure that Allah Almighty is Rightful and True, and certainly the Day of Resurrection will come, and we shall be rewarded or punished on that Day according to our deeds. In this verse, those people have been mentioned.

 

It is commanded: Among the wandering Arabs, there are some good people too. Their natural purity does not let them deprived of good works and fair thoughts. They believe in Allah Almighty (God) and the Last Day (the Day of Resurrection), and whatever they expend, consider it a means of nearness to Allah Almighty and His Pleasure. And they take it a source of Blessings from the Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam).

 

Listen to it that their hope shall be fulfilled. And Allah Almighty will bestow them His nearness. Blessings of God’s Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) will remove their difficulties and relieve them from all kinds of distress. God Almighty will forgive their sins and errors, and bring them into His Mercy, because He is Forging and Merciful.
