Lessons from Holy Qur'an

Crying without principles is useless

Quran Chapter 13  14 (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1573) – درس قرآن

Crying without principles is useless

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.)

It has been being explained with effect from the beginning of this Chapter that it is easy for a wise person to know Allah Almighty, because in this world, everything has been giving evidence by disclosing without saying about existence of Allah Almighty. The sun, the moon, their managed speed and aggregate order of the universe, these entire things are in front of mankind’s eyes. Moreover, this spacious land which has been spreading up to very distant, in which high mountains have been fixed, rivers have been flowing, different kinds of fruit with different tastes have been causing to produce, sometime there is day and sometime night, these all matters have been indicating themselves about Divine Power of their Creator. Every kind of vegetable is produced during their seasons and then it is finished and ruined. And then it grows again.


From it, a wise person acquires result that certainly Allah Almighty is Existing, and these all works are wonders of His Omnipotence. Holy Qur’aan, which describes that these manifestations are absolutely Signs of God’s Existence, assuredly unfolds the Truth. Therefore, its every commandment is admissible. It cannot be a lie, which Holy Qur’aan has informed us that the mankind will be reproduced after death.


It is going astray to beg from any other than such Omnipotent, Who has created these entire things. Some people are those who do not believe in Allah Almighty and stand by stretching their hands toward mortal things. Those things cannot be useful for them. You can use them at that time when you reach them according to Allah’s prescribed principles. Without admitting that my Supporter and actual Hearer of my prayer is only one; Allah Almighty, asking water to come into my mouth and quench my thirst, saying to the fruits: Come and enter into my belly through mouth to fill it up, calling elements of the earth: Come and build my house, these all are useless summons.


You will succeed at the very time, when you will take work from the principles prescribed by Allah Almighty, otherwise, crying in this manner is entirely depravity.


It is the real prayer unto Allah Almighty, though you accept it or otherwise. Your effort will be successful when He will like.
