Meditation in Qur’aan – Religious Book of Islam

Surah ‘Ibraahiim (Abraham) – 14

‘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.)

ٱللَّهِ ٱلَّذِى لَهُۥ مَا فِى ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَمَا فِىٱلْأَرْضِ وَوَيْلٌ لِّلْكَٰفِرِينَ مِنْ عَذَابٍ شَدِيدٍ 2

 ٱلَّذِينَ يَسْتَحِبُّونَ ٱلْحَيَوٰةَ ٱلدُّنْيَا عَلَى ٱلْءَاخِرَةِ وَيَصُدُّونَ عَن سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ وَيَبْغُونَهَا عِوَجًا أُو۟لَٰٓئِكَفِى ضَلَٰلٍۭ بَعِيدٍ 3

2b.  And woe unto the disbelievers from an awful doom-


3.  Those who love the life of the world more than the Hereafter, and debar (men) from the Way of Allah and would have it crooked, such are far astray.   

2b.  Wa  way-lul-lil-kaafi-riina  min  ‘azaabin-  shadiid.


3.  ‘Allaziina  yasta-hib-buunal-  hayaa-tad-dun-yaa  ‘alal-‘Aakhi-rati  wa  yasud-duuna  ‘an  Sabii-Lillaahi  wa  yabguu-nahaa  ‘iwajaa.  ‘Ulaaa-‘ika  fii  zalaa-lim-  ba-‘iid.       




Yasud-duuna – {(they) debar (men)}, origin of this word is sad-dun, which means “to debar”.


Allah Almighty sent His Messenger Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), giving him the Holy Writ (Holy Qur’aan – the Religious Book of Islam); that he should guide the sense of mankind by spreading its Light, so that he (the human being) should know Allah Almighty and His Omnipotence, believe that only He is the Creator and Lord of the entire universe, and bow before Him only.


The person, who does not believe after it, is a blasphemous, and he has turned away and strayed from the Way of Allah Almighty. He should not consider that there will be no side effect of it. It has been described in this verse that for the disbelievers, very painful doom and severe punishment is ready. This world, in which they have been entangled, is for a few days. Being entangled in the evil of infidelity, their life will never be peaceful. And after death, the blasphemers will entirely fall upon evil days.


In the Light of Holy Qur’aan, the sense of the mankind sees clearly that the duty of human being is to believe in Allah Almighty and pass his worldly life according to His Commandments, otherwise mankind is nothing.
