Commentary

 

Law-maa – (Why not), this word is another form of law-laa. Both words are used before the sentence to strengthen own point of view. The aim from it is that the person addressed; should do whatever we say.

 

The people; intoxicated of wealth and lovers of luxuries do not care anything save their own amusements. According to them, intelligent is that person who knows “how to earn wealth” and may take part in entertainments of higher level and amusements of top level. If someone says against these traditions and customs, he is considered as a mad, ignorant and stupid. The same condition was of the arrogant people of Makkah.

 

Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) rose the voice against all such wanderings and commanded: I am Messenger of Allah Almighty. And He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) caused to hear them Holy Qur’aan by reciting in corroboration of Himself and frightened the people in these words: If you did not listen to Me; but remained involved in your absurdities, then you would suffer from misfortunes in the world, as well as after death, you will be seized by severe doom. After hearing these unlike impartial Sayings against their traditions and customs, and along with it, beholding that this Person {Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him)} claims that “He will succeed and honorable people (as of Makkah) will be defeated”, signs of which were not visible to them before their wealth and respect, they began to scream instantly: O Claimant of it that Qur’aan is the Word of Allah! Where does your mind sing (where is your wisdom)? Whatever you are saying, are talks of mad people. If you are a Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), then the Angels should be with You, where are they?
