It is useless to cry over spilt milk

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.)


 قُلْ إِنَّمَآ أُنذِرُكُم بِٱلْوَحْىِ وَلَا يَسْمَعُ ٱلصُّمُّ ٱلدُّعَآءَ إِذَا مَا يُنذَرُونَ 45

  وَلَئِن مَّسَّتْهُمْ نَفْحَةٌمِّنْ عَذَابِ رَبِّكَ لَيَقُولُنَّ يَٰوَيْلَنَآ إِنَّا كُنَّا ظَٰلِمِينَ 46


45.  Say (O Muhammad, unto mankind): I warn you only by the Inspiration. And the deaf hear not the call when they are warned.


46.  And if a breath of thy Lord’s punishment were to touch them, they assuredly would say: Alas for us! Lo! We were wrongdoers.

45.  Qul  ‘innamaaa  ‘unziru-kum  bil-  wahyi  wa  laa  yasma-‘us-summud-du-‘aaa-‘a  ‘izaa  maa  yunzaruun.


46.  Wa  la-‘im-massat-hum  naf-hatum-min  ‘Azaabi  Rabbika  la-yaquulunna  yaa-waylanaaa  ‘innaa  kunnaa  zaalimiin.




It is official duty of Muhammad, the Messenger of Allaah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) as well as all other Messengers (peace be upon them) that they should communicate His Message to the people without let or hindrance, and manifest before them entirely by their word and deed that there is no personal benefit hidden in this matter. Their object is not to acquire wealth and property, honor and dignity. They should say to the people: you think wrong that we wish to become King of you or desire to collect worldly comfort.


Therefore, it has been commanded in this verse: O Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him)! Say to the people clearly! It is not self-made command of mine which I warn you from the bad consequence of your wrong deeds. Your actual Worshiped, God and Lord has sent Inspiration unto me that putting off the Commandments mentioned in Holy Qur’an carelessly and performing not in accordance with its Orders wholeheartedly, is at last cause of destruction. If now you become deaf and hear not my call, then these are manners of your ruin. If there is a well in the way covered by straw and weeds, which cannot be seen, then those who know; they warn by calling, but the deaf do not hear. Say to them whose hearts are deaf: You are going toward the abyss of the Fire. You do not understand the warning. If now any little flame of fire touch you then you will be able to do nothing. Your eyes and ears will be opened and you will begin to cry: Alas for us! Neither we heard the Sayings of the Messengers (peace be upon them) and nor obeyed.
