Idolaters of Makkah denied from accepting the Prophet

Chapter Maryam (Mary) – 19

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast)

 

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.
(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

 

With regard to arrangement order of the Chapters, this is nineteenth Surah of Holy Qur’an. It was revealed in the preliminary times of Messenger-hood during stay at Makkah. It contains six Sections.

 

When Idolaters of Makkah denied from accepting Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) as a Messenger, and for denying; they produced different types of excuses, then they were caused to understand in many Chapters, which were revealed in Makkah that: Allah Almighty has determined this way for guidance of the mankind with effect from the beginning that “for causing to know the human beings, some persons chosen from them should be appointed as Prophets (peace be upon them) from time to time. And for those chosen persons; some such particular signs should be fixed; by observing of which; the wise people may know easily that these are special people, their habits and manners are best and separate from others”.

 

For manifesting this matter, the people were caused to hear the mention of great Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon them) again and again in different ways, so that they may understand that “being Messenger of a mankind is not any strange thing. They were appointed and sent among the ancient people also at suitable times”.

 

The Message of the Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon them) is that “this entire universe has been created by Allah Almighty. He is the Creator of the mankind too. Life of every human being is for a fixed time in the world, after that they will die and will be reproduced again after some time. And then they will never die but live always. That perpetual life will be pleasant and comfortable for those people who would have dwelled the transitory life of the world according to the Sayings of the Messengers (peace be upon them). But those who would have disobeyed them (peace be upon them), they will pass their next life in suffering and sorrow.

 

In this Chapter, mention has been made in respect of Prophets Zachariah, John, Jesus, Abraham, Ishmael and Idris from the ancient Prophets (peace be upon them).

 

Then it has been admonished to the mankind after describing the circumstance of the Last Day that if they want to be saved from their enemy and are desirous of good in the Hereafter, then they should follow as Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) has directed and make the Holy Qur’an “Rules of Practice” for themselves. He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) is the Last Messenger of God Almighty and Holy Qur’an is His Last Scripture, which has been sent for the guidance of the entire human beings. If you did not believe in it then you would pass your worldly life in disputes, fear and confusion, and find not ease and comfort in the Day of Resurrection.

Lessons from Holy Qur'an

Wrongdoers would have to confront wrong

Quran Chapter 18  Summary (Pt-16, Stg-4) (L-1925) درس قرآن

Wrongdoers would have to confront wrong

Chapter Kahf (The Cave) – 18

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast)

 

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.
(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

 

Surah Kahf (Chapter “The Cave”) have come to an end. It describes to the mankind that God’s greatest favor upon him is that He appointed His Chosen and Beloved Servant Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) as His Last Messenger for the guidance of the entire human beings and bestowed him last Scripture named Holy Qur’an, so that by means of it; he (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) should convey the News to all the people of the world that “wrongdoers would have to confront severe calamities in the world and in the Hereafter too, and those people who will do righteous works, will find comfortable and relaxed life and after death (during the next life); things for enjoyment will be provided to them for always. Due to this graciousness, you should be thankful to God Almighty and believe in it that He is only One, Supporter and Protector, none is His sharer in any matter and He is not necessitous of any other.

 

It is commanded to the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him): After delivering this Message, you should not be grieved in the sorrow of people who refuse to believe in Holy Qur’an, because this world is for a few days only. It will be perished and those entire people will be produced before Us face to face. On that Day We shall settle with them fully.

 

Then after describing important points regarding the story of the people of the Cave, it has been caused to understand that the people; who believe in Allah Almighty and produce themselves as His slaves, certainly Allah Almighty helps them. After that, it has been caused to know that the people who are thankful to God Almighty and are devoted to Him only, they are satisfied. But the people who trust only in worldly wealth and property, pomp and show, when they lose in the punishment of their obstinacies, then they acquire nothing but affliction and grief.

 

Behold! You should be saved from the tricks of Satan. He is your enemy. Neither he participated in your creation or the creation of the world, and nor there is any role of him in its management. His only work is to make your works worse. Therefore, for escaping from his wickedness, you should seek refuge in God Almighty.

 

After narrating the circumstances of meeting between Moses and Khizar (peace be upon them), it has been explained that God’s every work depends on any opportune of the world. The mankind should have faith in it and follow the Religious Law patiently; prescribed by Him. Story of Alexander (Dhu’l-Qarneyn) teaches that as much strength and power Allah Almighty has given to a person, he should use it in the support of needy servants of God Almighty.

 

At the end, it is commanded: There is no end of the Knowledge of Allah Almighty. You should learn as much only which is useful for you and which exists in Holy Qur’an. And you should make none sharer of the worship due unto your Lord.
