‘A-‘uu-zu Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)
(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)
وَمَنْ أَعْرَضَ عَن ذِكْرِى فَإِنَّلَهُۥ مَعِيشَةً ضَنكًا وَنَحْشُرُهُۥ يَوْمَ ٱلْقِيَٰمَةِ أَعْمَىٰ 124
|124. And he who turneth away from Remembrance of Me, his will be a narrow life, and I shall bring him blind to the assembly on the Day of Resurrection.||124. Wa man ‘a’-raza ‘an- ZikRii fa-‘inna lahuu ma-‘iishatan- zankanw-wa Nahshuruhuu Yaw-mal- Qiyaamati ‘a’-maa.|
It was found from the previous verse that when Adam and Eve (peace be upon them) were born, they were of pure nature, had simple habits, and they were unaware of deceitful conduct, wickedness and cheating. If there is no one who may misguide such kind of creature, then they will never suffer from grief and pain, confusion and sadness. And the Garden is their Natural Right. But every individual hath his own fate.
Iblis (Satan) became their foe who got ready to deceive them after looking their innocence and caused to drive them out from the Garden. Base of the error of Adam (peace be upon him) was on forgetfulness, therefore their error was forgiven. But they had to expiate, so punishment of exile was given to both of them and they were confined in the world. At that time, it was commanded to them: You will be tested and examined here. We shall send Guidance unto you, in which; chain of your relationships will be explained for you. Your first concern is with Me (Allaah Almighty), so you should worship Me. Then you have various connections with – wife, children, neighbors, friends, compatriots and all human beings of the entire world. Ways of paying their rights will be described to you from time to time. The people who will worship Me according to My instructions and will pay remaining rights, room will be made for them in the Garden again after death. And those who forgot Me, will live in the world in worse condition. Actual pleasure will not be acquired by them and they will not be able to live satisfactorily. And they will be reproduced blind after death.
Now the mankind has become old in the world and the experience has informed him that verily; pleasure and satisfaction cannot be gained without having belief in Allaah Almighty and obeying His Commandments.
