(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast)

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

أَتَىٰٓ أَمْرُ ٱللَّهِ فَلَا تَسْتَعْجِلُوهُ سُبْحَٰنَهُۥ وَتَعَٰلَىٰ عَمَّا يُشْرِكُونَ 1

  يُنَزِّلُ ٱلْمَلَٰٓئِكَةَ بِٱلرُّوحِ مِنْ أَمْرِهِۦ عَلَىٰ مَن يَشَآءُ مِنْ عِبَادِهِۦٓ أَنْ أَنذِرُوٓا۟ أَنَّهُۥ لَآإِلَٰهَ إِلَّآ أَنَا۠ فَٱتَّقُونِ 2

1.  The Commandment of Allah will come to pass, so seek not ye to hasten it. Glorified and Exalted be He above all that they associate (with Him).


2.  He sendeth down the angels with the Spirit of His Command unto whom He will of His bondmen, (saying): Warn mankind that there is no God save Me, so keep your duty unto Me.

1.  ‘Ataaa  ‘AmrUllaahi  falaa  tasta’-jiluuh.  Sub-haanaHuu  wa  Ta-‘aalaa  ‘ammaa  yush-rikuun.

It was the condition of the people of Makkah that when Merciful Prophet (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) caused to hear them Message of God Almighty, they did not feel like the ancient disobedient nations; even after hearing their Resurrection. Then it was caused to hear them the Commandment of Allah Almighty: Now the Command of Allah Almighty is near to reach, but you should consider that It has reached, because before sending doom on any nation, a Prophet (peace be upon him) is sent for their guidance. If they do not listen to the Messenger (peace be upon him) and trouble Him, then at first, any big calamity comes upon them in the world. After that (death), the number is of the Day of Resurrection.


Allah Almighty has appointed Me (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) as His last Messenger and sent unto you. If you will disobey Me, you will be punished and ruined. Because after Me, no Prophet will come, so My arrival is a Sign of the arrival of the Last Day (the general resurrection), for, what was required to be caused to know the mankind, has been caused to understand them by means of Me (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). Now after Me; for you is only – anguish of the world and the General Resurrection. And there is nothing between you and these. I explain before you that Allah Almighty has commanded: I have sent source of your eternal life care of My last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). There is no worthy of worship save Me. Therefore, you should keep your duty unto Me.
