(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast)

 

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

يَٰٓأَبَتِ لَا تَعْبُدِ ٱلشَّيْطَٰنَ إِنَّ ٱلشَّيْطَٰنَ كَانَ لِلرَّحْمَٰنِ عَصِيًّا 44

 يَٰٓأَبَتِ إِنِّىٓ أَخَافُأَن يَمَسَّكَ عَذَابٌ مِّنَ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ فَتَكُونَ لِلشَّيْطَٰنِ وَلِيًّا 45

 

44.  O my father! Serve not the Devil. Lo! The devil is a rebel unto the Beneficent.

 

45.  O my father! Lo! I fear lest a punishment from the Beneficent overtake thee so that thou become a comrade of the Devil.

45.  Yaaa-‘ababti  ‘inniii  ‘akhaafu  ‘any-yamassaka  ‘azaabum-minar-Rahmaani  fatakuuna  lish-Shaytaani  waliy-yaa.

 

Commentary

 

Keeping the betterment of the mankind in view, Abraham (peace be upon him) has been causing to understand his father: Worship of idols is actually worship of Satan. The Devil (Satan) is disobedient of The Beneficent (Rahman). Then, who has misled you to worship the idols? From it; certainly The Beneficent will be displeased with you. And if He caused to suffer you from any calamity, then you would be of nowhere and you would become companion and friend of Satan.

 

There is a fear in it that perhaps in future; you will not be provided any chance of repentance and you will depart from the world being entangled in such crazy and destructive matters. There, in the Hell too, you will find no comrade but Satan, because it will be the result of making the Devil own companion in the world that on the Doomsday; he will be your companion. And he will put you also in the Hell by pulling along with his other followers.

 

By producing own thoughts, Abraham (peace be upon him) has been trying that those evil thoughts should get out from the heart of his father; in which he has been involved since long. And in place of those thoughts; he should begin to think well; result of which is always doing good works. If it happens then he may save his father from destruction.
