Lessons from Holy Qur'an

Inhuman people are unfortunate

Quran Chapter 13  27 (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1586) – درس قرآن

Inhuman people are unfortunate

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.)

  وَيَقُولُ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ لَوْلَآ أُنزِلَ عَلَيْهِ ءَايَةٌ مِّن رَّبِّهِۦ قُلْ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يُضِلُّ مَن يَشَآءُ وَيَهْدِىٓ إِلَيْهِ مَنْ أَنَابَ 27

27.  And those who disbelieve say: why is not a sign sent down upon him from his Lord? Say: Lo! Allah sendeth whom He will astray, and guideth unto Himself all who turn (unto Him). 27.  Wa  yaquu-lullaziina  kafa-ruu  law-laaa  ‘unzila  ‘alayhi  ‘Aaya-tum-mir-Rabbih.  Qul  ‘innAllaaha  yuzillu  manyya-shaaa-‘u  wa  yah-diii  ‘ilayhi  man  ‘anaab.




It was described previously that those people are unfortunate who disbelieve in Allah Almighty, who are inhuman for their companions and who create disturbance in the world for the purpose of their personal benefits. Being their prosperous in the world is not a sign that they are good. And nor being the Believers in straits; during their worldly life; is a sign that they are bad people. The actual matter is – success of the Hereafter, and it is in the destiny of such people who believe in Allah Almighty and correct their deeds according to His commandment, and they persevere during the calamities.


It is commanded that the disbelievers say usually: Show us a portent according to our demand if you are Messenger, otherwise how should we believe that you are Apostle of Allah? Replying to their question, Allah Almighty commands to His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him): Say to them! It seems from your conversation that guidance is not in your luck. I can do nothing for it. It is will of Allah Almighty that you should be accursed by Heaven. It appears from rigidity of your nature that Allah Almighty desires to keep you astray, otherwise many people of good disposition bowed before Him as soon as they heard Holy Qur’aan. They did not demand any portent. In accord with the rule, Allah Almighty guides such people who turn their attention to His Word immediately and wholeheartedly after hearing, and from it, they know Him, admit that He is their Worshipped and Lord.
