Disputes and Making excuses
Chapter Kahf (The Cave) – 18
‘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)
وَلَقَدْ صَرَّفْنَا فِى هَٰذَا ٱلْقُرْءَانِ لِلنَّاسِ مِن كُلِّ مَثَلٍ وَكَانَٱلْإِنسَٰنُ أَكْثَرَ شَىْءٍ جَدَلًا 54
|54. And verily We have expounded for mankind in this Qur’an all manners of similitude. And man is more than anything contentious.||54. Wa laqad sarrafNaa fii haa-zal- Qur-‘aani linnaasi min kulli masal. Wa kaanal- ‘Insaanu ‘aksara shay-‘in jadalaa.|
Jadala – it aims “to quarrel without any ground, which occurs in admitting any true matter, that is to say, a matter is being proved by arguments; but the heart of the hearer does not desire to accept it due to any reason and concocts in various ways. The same is also called “making excuses”.
Messenger of Allah Almighty, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) explains the Truth and those people understand it well who know him. He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) did never tell a lie, nor deceived to anyone and nor ever coveted for wealth or power. He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) was always a Sympathizer of every human being and ready to help every necessitous. He sacrificed own benefit and caused to profit others; thus far that the entire people accepted him (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) unanimously as a true, honest and well wisher of others.
After that when he (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) began to explain the essential secret of life before the people and caused to hear them unequalled Word of Allah Almighty (Holy Qur’an), then what is the reason that his Saying should not be acknowledged? But it happened that maximum people did not believe.
In the verses of Holy Qur’an, the perfect matters were caused to understand them by different manners, and their heart was convinced of Holy Qur’an’s good language, eloquence and Its extraordinary form of causing to know. But some selfish people misunderstood carelessly that “if we believed in it then our entire efforts, which we did so far, would be useless”. The mankind becomes blind in selfishness. His sense falls into transitory pomp of the world and he begins to reject the Truth. It is the sign of being at variance of the sense that it should produce absurd and useless excuses for disbelieving in that what has been proved by Reasons and Tokens. The same love of the world excites the sense of mankind to create disputes without reason. The same desire of dignity of the world teaches him quarrelling and making excuses. Satan generates him more for the same purpose, and the human being denies the Right by producing unreasonable disputes.
