Physical and spiritual powers are bestowed by Allah

Chapter“The Prophets” – (Suratul‘Ambiyaaa’ – 21)

‘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)

According to Qur’anic Order, this is twenty first Chapter. It was revealed during the midst times of Messenger’s (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) stay at Makkah. There are contents in it concerning awaking the mankind from careless sleep. It has been explained in this Chapter that the Day of Judgment is inevitable. The human beings will be brought to life again after death. And accounts of their entire deeds, which they did during the life of the world, would have to be checked.

The mankind should never think that there is no one who may ask him about his deeds, so he can do whatever he desires. He should understand it carefully that his Creator is; Who will ask him about his worldly deeds, Who bestowed to him spiritual and physical powers.

Allaah Almighty is One, without any partner or colleague. Only He is Who has created the entire human beings, Who shall reproduce them on the Day of Resurrection and Who shall inquire into their deeds. Then He will give abundant rewards to the people who did good during the life of the world. And the evildoers will be thrown by Him into the Fire of the Hell. For causing to understand these matters, Allaah Almighty sent His Prophets and Messenger (peace be upon them) in the world. If the mankind desires good for himself then he should believe in the commandments mentioned below:

  1. Allaah is One. He is Who created the mankind, Who produces causes of his death and Who will bring him to life again after death.
  • The Day of Resurrection is beyond question. On that Day, entire deeds of the mankind will be reckoned. Good people will be blessed and sinners will be punished.
  • The entire Prophets (peace be upon them) of Allaah Almighty are True. He sent them for the guidance of the mankind and gave them Scriptures from time to time.

The First of all Messengers is Adam and the Last of all is Muhammad (peace be upon all of them). They taught correct principles of life to the human beings during their times and explained that “the person who will not abide by these principles, will be in worst condition on the Day of Resurrection”.

It has been described in this Chapter that whatsoever humanbeings do intentionally, that is recorded immediately in their Conduct Sheet. Whenthey will be reproduced on the Day of Judgment; they will be asked: Who is yourLord? What is your Religion and Who is Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings andpeace be upon him)? Then their Conduct Sheets will be handed over to them andthey will be rewarded or punished according to their deeds.  Transliterated Holy Qur’an in Roman Script & Translated fromArabic to English by Marmaduke Pickthall,Published by Paak Company, 17-Urdu Bazaar, Lahore, Lesson collected from Dars e Qur’aan published By Idara Islaah wa Tableegh, Lahore (translated Urdu toEnglish by Muhammad Sharif).
