Quran Chapter 13 – 2b (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1558) – درس قرآن
Certainty of meeting with The Lord of all
Rules and Regulations for everything
God gave sense to the mankind for understanding
Surah Ra-‘d (The Thunder) – 13
‘A-‘uu-zu Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)
(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)
كُلٌّ يَجْرِى لِأَجَلٍ مُّسَمًّى يُدَبِّرُ ٱلْأَمْرَ يُفَصِّلُ ٱلْءَايَٰتِ لَعَلَّكُم بِلِقَآءِ رَبِّكُمْ تُوقِنُونَ (2 b)
|2b. Each runneth unto an appointed term; He plans every affair; He detaileth the Revelations, that haply ye may be certain of the meeting with your Lord.||2b. Kulluny-yajrii li-‘ajalim-musam-maa. Yudab-birul-‘amra yufas-silul-‘aayaati la-‘allakum bi-liqaaa-‘i Rab-bi-kum tuuqi-nuun.|
It is commanded: The sun and the moon will continue running according to their appointed term. Those have been working under the system which Allah Almighty has established by His Power and Desire. As Allah Almighty has caused to run the sun and the moon in accordance with an Established Order, like this, He has determined Rules and Regulations for every thing of the universe, according to which every thing has been functioning at its own. God Almighty has manifested the Revelations and Signs of this perfect and astonishing arrangement in detail. For understanding them, He gave sense to the mankind. Then for guidance of the sense to think about the right path, He sent His Messengers (peace be upon them) and revealed Scriptures on them.
Among those Messengers (peace be upon them) and Scriptures, Muhammad is the last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) and (Holy) Qur’aan is the last Scripture, Verses of which provide full Light for the sense of human being.
It seems from the above mentioned discussion that as Established Orders and Laws are fixed for the world and everything, in the same way, Rules and Regulations have been determined also for the mankind, so they should work thoughtfully in accord with them.
It appears from the Arrangement of the world that chain of causes is in force here, and their consequences use to appear. Like this, results of human deeds will appear too. But because those results do not appear in the world as a whole, so for them, the Day of Reckoning has been fixed.
