Commentary

 

It is commanded that Prophet Moses (peace be upon him) solicited: Our Lord! It seems that Pharaoh and his people will never change their way of life. They have two things, due to which; nature of the mankind becomes corrupted. They are healthy and possess food in abundance, sources of conveyance, well-built and decorated houses, wealth and property, even every thing. Until they possess these all things, ease and pleasantness of life, they will never listen to any individual, and will do that what they desire. You have given them all kinds of luxurious enjoyment. But unfortunately those things have become means of their deviation and they use force against others. They have gone astray, as well as lead others to give up the Straight Path.

 

It is known from this verse that wealth and property, good health, arrangements of comfort and pleasure are grant of Allah Almighty. He gives such things with His Bounty and Favor; to whom He desires. But these entire things are for testing all mankind. He wishes to see: whether the people use these things in accordance with the commands of Allah Almighty or choose the way of rebellion by strutting, become rulers themselves and begin to molest the creature of Allah Almighty.

 

Those people who are prosperous, they should learn from these verses that they should help the poor and insolvent people and spend their wealth and power in correcting their condition, and move forward by taking all along with themselves.

Commentary

Apparently it is observed that the Muslims have been scattering. Strangeness has been increasing among them and no united effort can be from them for their mutual betterment. It is clear that if an individual possesses any useful thing; but he disregards, he cannot reap advantage from it. Existence of the medicine cannot be useful for the patient if he does not take it properly. Believers of Allah Almighty have “hitting the mark to the point” medicine which is their “Belief” and by which their every disease – apparent and hidden; can be cured. But they have forgotten it by putting it in the corner of any shelf. They have perception of their calamities. They have been observing that they are being put down at every moment. Schism has been choking them. Greediness and lust have made them selfish.

Although they fulfill religious duties, offer congregational prayers; hear exhortations and accordingly pay alms and charity also, but predominant qualities of Islam are not being produced into them. No doubt that establishing mutual worship and obeying the sayings of religious leaders are good matters but notwithstanding these good acts, none says them good. In a previous verse, it has been described: “‘In  kuntum  ‘aaman-tum  Billaahi  fa-‘alayHi  tawakka-luuu” (If ye have believed in Allah then put trust in Him).

 

It is known that soul of all good deeds is “the Belief”. We praise Allah Almighty but do not turn our intention unto Him. We say with our tongues: “Allah only is our God” and pray for our welfare much also, but our hearts do not put trust in Him. We establish worship but our hearts are not attentive unto Him, though the Belief is joint in all Muslims, but they have put it behind their back. When there is no perception of the thing which is common in all, then there is no worship; but following the traditions and customs only. Strife and quarrel with one another mutually; is only for the purpose that we are bound of own customs separately. While the Belief is not in sight then how can they unite and why should they intend towards the service of the religion.

 

In the Believers; only Belief is such a thing which can bring the separated persons together. It has been explained in the above-mentioned verses: At first seek your Belief; whether it exists or otherwise. If it exists then you should put trust in Allah Almighty, live altogether in peace, establish worship at one place and pray for welfare of all community, then Mercy of Allah Almighty will descend on you and such prayers will come out from your hearts naturally, by the means of which, you will gain victory and triumph over your enemies and hypocrites.

 

It was described to the Children of Israel that first step of arrangement is “Belief”, after that, worship of Allah Almighty and praying from Him. Your next every step will be wrong till the time your first step is not correct.
