Lessons from Holy Qur'an

Worldly status is worthless

Quran Chapter 11-30 (Pt-12, Stg-3) (L-1367) – درس قرآن

Worldly status is worthless

Surah Huud (Hud) – 11


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

30.  And, O my people! Who would deliver me from Allah if I thrust them away? Will ye not then reflect? 30.  Wa  yaa-qawmi  manyyan-surunii  minAllaahi  ‘in-  tarat-tuhum.  ‘Afa-laa  tazak-karuun.              




Messenger Noah (peace be upon Him) said that all human beings are creature of Allah Almighty and according to it; all are equal. I don’t have any right to make groups of the people on the basis of temporary splendor, wealth and property, and let just those people come unto me who consider themselves on a higher status in the world. This is the matter; self fabricated by themselves. Allah Almighty has fixed the status of the world as worthless.


Now think a little while about it that how can I say to such people, who come to me for hearing the Message of Allah Almighty that, I have no time for them, they should not come unto me? Or those who already have been sitting near me, should I thrust them away? If I did so, Allah Almighty would punish me for such conduct because it is disobedience of His command, then who will save me from the wrath of Allah Almighty?


Why will Allah Almighty listen to the recommendation of you proud and wealthy people? Recommendations are heard by the greedy governors of the world, because they receive gifts and bribes from the wealthy people. When the time comes; they need their favor, otherwise their superior people will be displeased from them. Allah is the Strongest Ruler. Bribe and recommendation is not acceptable to Him. Do you not have any sense of thinking about it and that you should not talk improperly?


This verse is saying very clearly that caste, race and sect, wealth and property, riches and poverty, nation and country are nothing. The man who is king and sitting on the throne is fully equal of that person before Allah Almighty; who works hard for livelihood of himself and his family. However, if that poor person believes in Allah Almighty and worships Him, then he is better than the king near Allah Almighty.
