Commandments of Allah and His Messenger

Surah YUUNUS – 10 (JONAH)


In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful


35.  Say:  Is there of your partners (whom ye ascribe unto Allah) one that leadeth to the Truth? Say: Allah leadeth to the Truth. Is He Who leadeth to the Truth more deserving that He should be followed, or he who findeth not the way unless he (himself) be guided? What aileth you? How judge ye? 35.  Qul  hal  min-  shura-kaaa-‘i-kum-many-yahdiii  ‘ilal-Haqq.  QuLillaahu  yahdii  lil-Haqq.  ‘Afa-manyyahdiii  ‘ilal-Haqqi  ‘ahaqqu  ‘anyyut-taba-‘a  ‘am-mallaa  yahiddiii  ‘illaaa  ‘anyyuh-daa.  Famaa  lakum.  Kayfa  tahkumuun.     




Laa  yahiddiii – {he (himself) does not find the way}, it is an imperfect tense. Actually this word is yah-tadii. One more word has come out from the same which is ‘ahtadaa’. ‘Ahtadaa’ means “to find the way”. Laa  yahtadii (laa  yahiddiii) means “he does not find the way”.


It is commanded: Your Elders, Wisemen, Priests, Monks, the Hand of any religious order, spiritual Guides and Brahmans etc. can do nothing at their own. The Guidance is not in their power. However, after getting Guidance from God Almighty, they can guide others, not themselves.


The Children of Israel had faith in their Priests and Monks that they were their Gods. The Christians said that Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) is their God. Other idolaters determined that their religious Scholars were their Doers. They all went astray. Those entire people and particularly Muslims are being warned in this verse that their judgment is false. Except Allah Almighty; there is none; who may have power to give something to any other, to snatch anything from any individual, to cause to die or live, and guide unto the Straight Path.


There is neither any guide, nor leader and nor any director, and nor can be anyone save Allah Almighty. It is the Truth, remaining all is self-invented. Our Lord! Show and lead us unto the Straight Path. Amen.
