Guidance for the good of soul

Surah Younus (Jonah) (peace be upon him)


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

108a.  Say: O mankind! Now hath the Truth from your Lord come unto you. So whosoever is guided, is guided only for (the good of) his soul, 108a.  Qul  yaaa-‘ayyu-hannaasu  qad  jaaa-‘akumul-Haqqu  mir-Rabbi-kum.  Famanih-tadaa  fa-‘innamaa  yahtadii  li-nafsih. 




In the world, there are many necessities of the human being. For fulfilling them, he has been bestowed with power of thinking, understanding and working. Most works of life are done by his option. There are many ways before him for fulfilling necessities, and he likes one of those ways after checking. But because his knowledge is limited, so often he errs in choosing the correct way, reason of which is that he considers “this worldly life is everything”, and he is careless from the matter that there is one more life after this life, which is called “futurity, after life, the world to come, the Day of Resurrection”. When he strives for the good of this world, does not think, lest this effort be against the gain of the life after death, whereas he should think and do all works in such a way that he may succeed in both worlds.


It is commanded: O Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him)! Say to the people after causing to know them clearly about the Revelations of Holy Qur’aan! This, what is being explained before you, is such correct, straight and right path, which your Lord has manifested on you. The name of this way is “Religion Islam”. Your sense is sufficient to understand it that “This is the best way for the mankind”. By choosing this way, you will get success in the both worlds. Your life of this world will be arranged; as well as, you will reap its reward also after death on the Day of Resurrection.
