Lessons from Holy Qur'an

History shows that the disobedient were ruined

Quran Chapter 11-14 (Pt-12, Stg-3) (L-1354) – درس قرآن

History shows that the disobedient were ruined

Surah Huud (Hud) – 11


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

14.  But if they do not answer you, then know that it is revealed only with the Knowledge of Allah; and that there is no God save Him. Will ye then be (of) those who surrender? 14.  Fa-‘illam  yasta-jiibuu  la-kum  fa’-lamuuu  ‘anna-maaa  ‘unzila  bi-‘ilMillaahi  wa  ‘allaaa  ‘ilaaha  ‘illaa  Huu.  Fahal  ‘an-tum-Musli-muun.




‘illam – (if not), actually these are two words – ‘in and lam. ‘In means “if” and lam means “not”. In Holy Qur’an, these both words are written jointly and “n” of ‘in is dropped.


Yasta-jiibuu – this complete word is yasta-jiibuun, but due to the word before it “lam”, “n” has been dropped. Its origin is ‘istajaabah, which has come out from jawaab. Jawaab means “answer”. ‘istajaabah means “to say, to obey, to accept that what is commanded”. This word was discussed in Surah ‘Al-Baqarah.


It is commanded that if they may not do so, then it is clear that “This is not the Word of any mankind”. After it, what can be said more save it that it is a Manifestation of the rare Knowledge of Allah Almighty, and He has sent this Holy Word unto His last Messenger; Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) by means of Divine Revelation (Wahii).


While it is the Word of His Own and revealed with His Knowledge, then verily, Its every verse is quite right and true. It has been commanded in it that “there is none equal to Allah Almighty, so only He is the Worshipped and God of all, because by connecting these all matters, no any other result comes out beside it. When it has been cleared; then how do you dispute in obeying His Command? Why do you not believe in Him and do not bow your heads before His Orders?


The Truth is that you should recite repeatedly the Holy Qur’an and understand its meanings. And you should obey whatsoever it says, then behold! How your worldly life becomes neat and clean, pure from evil and clamor, free from woe and affliction, and full of ease and relief, and after death; in what manner you are bestowed with happiness, how much rewards are given to you?


The history witnesses that those people who surrendered, they performed and showed that which could not be done by any other nation till today. Those who disbelieved and disobeyed; they were ruined, but who escaped; failed to keep their hearts’ satisfied.
