Being in doubt concerning God’s Word
Surah Huud (Hud) – 11
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
|17. Is he (to be counted equal with them) who relieth on a clear proof from his Lord, and a witness from Him reciteth it, and before it was the Book of Moses, a guide and a mercy? Such believe therein, and whoso disbelieveth therein of the clans, the Fire is his appointed place. So be not thou in doubt concerning it. Lo! It is the Truth from thy Lord; but most of mankind believe not.||17. ‘A-faman kaana ‘alaa Bayyi-na-tim-mir-Rabbi-hii wa yat-luuhu Shaa-hidum-min-hu wa min qablihii Kitaabu Muusaaa ‘imaa-manw-wa rah-mah. ‘Ulaaa-‘ika yu’-mi-nuuna bih. Wa many-yak-fur bihii minal- ‘Ah-zaabi fannaaru maw-‘idah. Falaa taku fii mir-ya-tim-minh. ‘Innahul-Haqqu mir-Rabbika wa laakinna ‘aksa-rannaasi laa yu’-minuun.|
Bayyi-na-tin – (A clear Proof), it is an adjective from the word “Bayyan. Bayyan means “pure, clear, revealed, open, visible”. Bayyinatun means “a bright and clear sign or path”. Here it aims “human nature”.
Yat-luu – (to follow), the origin of this word is til-wun. Til-wun means “to go with and follow someone”. Here it aims “It confirms and strengthens that”.
‘Imaa-mun – (a guide); any person or thing; which guides others and that is an example for all. Here it aims “a spiritual guide”.
It is commanded that you heard the circumstances of those who fall in love with the world. Behold now also unto that person who sees (by internal Light; given by his Lord) a clear path of life. Then; he is bestowed with a magnificent Book like Holy Qur’an. After that, he observes that the Heavenly Books too, in which; Torah of Prophet Moses (peace be upon him) is the most prominent in guidance and human compassion, commands unto the same path.
From these observances, he gets certainty that only Holy Qur’an is such Book which desires to direct the mankind in accord with human nature, and he puts his faith in it, and passes his life according to its Instructions.
But from the other people, which groups will not believe in Holy Qur’an; their appointed place will be “the Fire”. So O Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him)! Declining by any person cannot be cause of doubt in the Truth of Holy Qur’an. You should say to the people that they should purify their hearts from the doubts and hold fast the Commands of Holy Qur’an.
