Promise of obeying God’s command
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.)
وَأَنذِرِ ٱلنَّاسَ يَوْمَ يَأْتِيهِمُ ٱلْعَذَابُ فَيَقُولُ ٱلَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا۟ رَبَّنَآ أَخِّرْنَآ إِلَىٰٓ أَجَلٍ قَرِيبٍ نُّجِبْ دَعْوَتَكَ وَنَتَّبِعِ ٱلرُّسُلَ أَوَلَمْتَكُونُوٓا۟ أَقْسَمْتُم مِّن قَبْلُ مَا لَكُم مِّن زَوَالٍ 44
|44. And warn mankind of a Day when the doom will come upon them, and those who did wrong will say: Our Lord! Reprieve us for a little while, we will obey Thy call and will follow the messengers. (It will be answered): Did ye not swear before that there would be no end for you?||44. Wa ‘anzirin-naasa Yawma ya’-tii-himul-‘Azaabu faya-quulul-laziina zalamuu Rabba-naaa ‘akh-khir-naaa ‘ilaaa ‘ajalin- qariibin- nujib Da’wataKa wa nattabi-‘ir-rusul. ‘Awa lam takuu-nuuu ‘aqsam-tum-min qablu maa lakum-min zawaal.|
Mankind becomes proud on his bodily health, physical strength and wealth, and instead of keeping his wishes in control, he considers that collecting goods for fulfilling own desires is the best hobby. But his Creator and Lord Almighty fixes it a devilish temptation and says to His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him): Warn these people and say to them: If you are entangled continuously in the same ridiculous thoughts, then on one or other day misfortune will surround you. At that time you will cry out helplessly that “Our Lord! Indeed we were deceived. Reprieve us for a little while. We promise that we shall obey Your commandments and follow Your Messengers (peace be upon them) wholeheartedly in future”.
Then it will be commanded: you have been reprieved very much. But you were so much lustful in worldly merriments that you forgot your death. Whenever you spoke, you said: No one can snatch this prosperity from us. Who can defeat us?
