Quran Chapter 14 – the End (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1650) – درس قرآن
Efforts of Abraham and Moses to fulfill duty
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.)
Lessons from Surah ‘Ibrahiim (Chapter – 14) were finished on the last one. Reason of sending Holy Qur’aan has been described to the remarkable people of Makkah in this small Chapter, and about such work; it has been informed to the last Messenger, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him); for which Allah Almighty has appointed Him (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him).
Efforts to fulfill duties and lives in respect of Messengers Abraham and Moses (peace be upon them) have been discussed in this Surah. It has been explained in it that it was duty of every Messenger (peace be upon him) that He should cause to understand the Laws of Allah Almighty to the people of His folk and teach them the way of dwelling in the world, which Allah Almighty has fixed for the mankind.
Messenger Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) has been sent at the last of all Prophets (peace be upon them) for the entire human beings of the world. It has been mentioned in the Holy Qur’aan that the people of ancient folks did not recognize their Prophets (peace be upon them). However if they knew some of them, they disobeyed them (peace be upon them). The result was that punishment of their disobedience was given to them in the world and they earned the doom of the Day of Resurrection, retaliation of their wicked deeds.
Allah Almighty helped His Prophets (peace be upon them) and their Believers in the world at the time of their troubles; and ruined their enemies. It is a warning from the circumstances of those people for the entire human beings. Otherwise on the Day of Resurrection, those people will not be of use, to whom they follow today, and for the cause of whom; they have thrown the Commandments of Allah Almighty and Sayings of His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) behind their back. Satan himself, who is the great guide of the entire stray people, will give a point blank refusal to his devoted people and go away.
You should follow the behavior of your Ancestor Messenger Abraham (peace be upon him), who constructed Ka’-bah (the Square Building – the House of Allah) for your betterment and prayed for you good supplications from Allah Almighty. Today, for completion of the same Religion, Messenger Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) has come in the world. If you did not follow Him then after death, you will be entangled in such terrible misfortunes, by thinking about which, the end of the hairs stand.
