Things of pleasure and enjoyment
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.)
بَلْ مَتَّعْنَا هَٰٓؤُلَآءِوَءَابَآءَهُمْ حَتَّىٰ طَالَ عَلَيْهِمُ ٱلْعُمُرُ أَفَلَا يَرَوْنَ أَنَّا نَأْتِى ٱلْأَرْضَ نَنقُصُهَا مِنْ أَطْرَافِهَآ أَفَهُمُ ٱلْغَٰلِبُونَ 44
|44. Nay, but We gave these and their fathers ease until life grew long for them. See they not how We are gradually reducing the land, from its outlying parts? Can they then be the victors?||44. Bal matta’-Naa haaa-‘ulaaa-‘i wa ‘aabaaa-‘ahum hattaa taala ‘alayhimul-‘umur. ‘Afalaa yarawna ‘anNaa Na’-til-‘arza nunqusuhaa min ‘atraafi-haa. ‘Afahumul- gaalibuun.|
It is commanded: Inability and helplessness of the idols is not such a thing which a mankind may not understand. When he desires to understand, understands very delicate matters and begins to find faults in every matter. What is difficult for him in understanding this very common matter that neither these idols can understand anything and nor can give answer to any question? Those can do nothing whether you pick them up and throw away or break them.
Moreover, Knowing Allaah Almighty, Who is The Omnipotent; The Beneficent and The Merciful, is also not difficult, because the entire universe has been running under His control. There is none who may change the system which He has established. Changes of day and night turn by turn, alteration of the circumstances of the world, prosperity and worse condition of the mankind, life and death of living beings etc. all such works have been running according to His prescribed Rules and Regulations.
These people can understand every matter easily if they meditate, because they are neither innocent and nor have they so weak sense that they may not understand such easy matter. In fact these people and their forefathers have been nurtured delicately since long.
Allaah Almighty commands: We gave things of pleasure and enjoyment to these people and their fathers along with long living. Therefore, they have become inebriated due to prosperity. But they should open their eyes and see that day by day, the earth has been being reduced for them, and Islam has been succeeding gradually. Now there is no chance for them to overcome and get all over victory.
