Lessons from Holy Qur'an

God doeth what He will

Quran Chapter 14  26 & 27 (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1632) – درس قرآن

God doeth what He will

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.)

وَمَثَلُ كَلِمَةٍ خَبِيثَةٍ كَشَجَرَةٍ خَبِيثَةٍ ٱجْتُثَّتْ مِن فَوْقِ ٱلْأَرْضِ مَا لَهَا مِن قَرَارٍ 26

  يُثَبِّتُ ٱللَّهُ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ بِٱلْقَوْلِٱلثَّابِتِ فِى ٱلْحَيَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنْيَا وَفِى ٱلْءَاخِرَةِ وَيُضِلُّ ٱللَّهُ ٱلظَّٰلِمِينَ وَيَفْعَلُ ٱللَّهُ مَا يَشَآءُ 27

26.  And the similitude of a bad saying is as a bad tree, uprooted from upon the earth, possessing no stability.


27.  Allah confirmeth those who believe by a firm saying in the life of the world and in the Hereafter. And Allah sendeth wrongdoers astray. And Allah doeth what He will.

26.  Wa  masalu  kalimatin  khabii-satin-  ka-shajaratin  khabii-satinij-tussat  min-  fawqil-  ‘arzi  maa  lahaa  min-  qaraar.


27.  Yusabbi-tUllaahul-laziina  ‘aamanuu  bil-Qawlis-Saabiti  fil-hayaatid-dunyaa  wa  fil-  ‘Aakhirah.  Wa  yuzil-lUllaahuz-zaalimiina,  wa  yaf-‘alUllaahu  maa  yashaaa’.      




A bad saying is opposite to a goodly saying, in which such sayings are included by which powerlessness of Allah Almighty appears and refusal of His Existence becomes manifest. It is like that tree which does not possess any root and stability. It can be uprooted by hand easily any time by any one. Its fruit is tasteless, bitter, thorny and acrimonious.


All evil acts, reciprocal abuse, obscenity, garrulity, quarrels and disputes etc. are parts of such forest, fruit of which is bitter and useless.


In this verse, ignorant people of the world have been caused to understand that actual power is in Belief. The Believers do not shake from their standing place. Allah Almighty keeps them steadfast in the world and in the Hereafter (in all conditions). However, those who do not want to understand, Allah Almighty does not show them Straight Path. He has Power of all kinds and can do what He desires. The person, who will not obey the Commandments of God Almighty, will go astray.
