You would add to me naught save perdition
Surah Huud (Hud) – 11
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
قَالَ يَٰقَوْمِ أَرَءَيْتُمْ إِن كُنتُ عَلَىٰ بَيِّنَةٍ مِّن رَّبِّى وَءَاتَىٰنِى مِنْهُ رَحْمَةً فَمَن يَنصُرُنِى مِنَ ٱللَّهِ إِنْ عَصَيْتُهُۥفَمَا تَزِيدُونَنِى غَيْرَ تَخْسِيرٍ (63
|63. He said: O my people! Bethink you; if I am (acting) on clear Proof from my Lord and there hath come unto me a mercy from Him, who will save me from Allah if I disobey Him? Ye would add to me naught save perdition.||63. Qaala yaa-qawmi ‘a-ra-‘ay-tum ‘in kuntu ‘alaa Bayyi-na-tim-mir-Rabbii wa ‘aataanii minhu Rahamtan famany-yan-surunii minAllaahi ‘in ‘asay-tuh. Famaa tazii-duuna-nii gay-ra takh-siir.|
Takh-siir – (perdition, utter loss), orign of this word is kha-sa-ra, from which the words khasaarah and khusraan have come out. Khaasi-ruuna and khaasi-riina have been used at many places, which are plural of khaasirun. Khaasirun means losser. The word takh-siir is at the weight of taq-siir and meanings of these both words correspond nearly with each other.
Prophet Salih (peace be upon him) said: O my people! Listen to me! My Lord has given me correct sense with His mercy and caused to understand me clearly, so I have chosen the Right Path.
If after having so much big Bounty, I shall disobey command of Allah Almighty and He will punish me then who will save me at that time? If you have any doubt in my saying, I don’t care. There is much difference between the sense of every individual. But my Lord has bestowed me special bright wisdom and it is a mercy from Him, and no veil of ignorance and negligence has been lying on it. How can I disobey Him intentionally?
It is clear that if I shall follow you then there is nothing for me in it but utter loss. You follow the traditions; established by your ancestors, in which there is nothing for you save perdition. By obeying you, I shall inherit nothing also save the loss.
