God knows about what is good or bad for us

Surah Huud (Hud) – 11


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

 وَإِلَىٰ عَادٍ أَخَاهُمْ هُودًا قَالَ يَٰقَوْمِ ٱعْبُدُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ مَا لَكُممِّنْ إِلَٰهٍ غَيْرُهُۥٓ إِنْ أَنتُمْ إِلَّا مُفْتَرُونَ (50)  يَٰقَوْمِ لَآ أَسْـَٔلُكُمْ عَلَيْهِ أَجْرًا إِنْ أَجْرِىَ إِلَّا عَلَى ٱلَّذِى فَطَرَنِىٓ أَفَلَا تَعْقِلُونَ (51

50.  And unto (the tribe of) ‘Aad (We sent) their brother, Huud. He said: O my people! Serve Allah! Ye have no other God save Him. Lo! Ye do but fabricate.


51.  O my people! I ask of you no reward for it. Lo! my reward is the concern only of Him Who created me. Have ye then no sense?

(Section 5)

50.  Wa  ‘ilaa  ‘Aadin  ‘akhaa-hum  Huudaa.  Qaala  yaa-qaw-mi’-budUllaaha  maa  lakum-min  ‘ilaa-hin  gayruh.  ‘In  ‘an-tum  ‘illaa  muf-taruun.


51.  Yaa-qawmi  laaa  ‘as-‘alu-kum  ‘alayhi  ‘ajraa.  ‘In  ‘ajri-ya  ‘illaa  ‘alAllazii  fatara-nii.  ‘Afalaa  ta’-qiluun.     




Holy Qur’an desires to teach the human beings that in the world; no-one adopted the Straight Path without guidance of the Messengers of Allah Almighty (peace be upon him). Circumstances of ancient people are being caused to hear for manifesting that “what was the sequel of those who denied the guidance of the Messengers (peace be upon them)?”


After the storm of Noah (peace be upon him), the world settled again in process of time and the people were populated at various places in the forms of villages. In Ahqaaf, between Hazarmaut and Najraan, a folk name ‘Aad rose. They were from the descendants of Aad. Aad is grandson of Prophet Noah (peace be upon him). These people were physically very strong, tall and had heavy bodies. They forgot teachings of Noah (peace be upon him), went astray and began to worship idols.


Prophet Hud (peace be upon him) belonged to the same nation, so in this regard; He (peace be upon him) was their brother. Allah Almighty appointed him as His Messenger (peace be upon him) for causing to know them. He (peace be upon him) said to the folk: Behold! These idols have been fabricated by your own hands. You are thinking false that they can give you something or snatch anything from you. You should leave worshipping these false deities and worship only One God, Allah Almighty. This is the Right Path for the mankind. Other all paths are wrong. Attend to me! There is no hidden design of mine in it, which I have been causing to understand you. I do not ask of you any reward. He, Who created me, will provide me every thing. Think about it and obey my sayings. It will be Good for you.
