Dispute without knowledge -1

Chapter Hajj” – (The Pilgrimage) – 22

‘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)


 وَأَنَّ ٱلسَّاعَةَ ءَاتِيَةٌ لَّا رَيْبَ فِيهَا وَأَنَّ ٱللَّهَ يَبْعَثُ مَن فِى ٱلْقُبُورِ 7

وَمِنَ ٱلنَّاسِ مَن يُجَٰدِلُ فِى ٱللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ وَلَا هُدًى وَلَا كِتَٰبٍ مُّنِيرٍ 8


7.  And as it is the Hour is bound to come, there is no doubt thereof; and Allah will raise those who are in the graves.


8.  And among mankind is he who disputeth concerning Allah without knowledge or Guidance or a Scripture giving Light –

7.  Wa  ‘annas-Saa-‘ata  ‘aatiyatul-laa  rayba  fiihaa,  wa  ‘annAllaaha  yab-‘asu  man-  fil-qubuur.


8.  Wa  minan-naasi  many-yujaadilu  Fillaahi  bi-gayri  ‘ilminw-wa  laa  Hudanw-wa  laa  Kitaabim-Muniir.




Muniir – (Light, clear, splendid, brilliant, shining, illuminating), it is the Subject from the word ‘inaaratun, which has been derived from “Nuur”. Nuur means “Light, splendor etc.”


By considering thoughtfully upon the stages of mankind’s creation and revival of the earth after being barren, it appears that indeed; Allaah Almighty exists. He quickens the dead and He is Able to do all things. It was discussed in the previous lesson.


It has been commanded in this verse that by meditating in the above mentioned matters, it will come in the knowledge also that certainly the Day of Resurrection will come and Allaah Almighty will reproduce the people who died, because neither the human being can fulfill his entire desires during the life of this world, and nor full retribution of good deeds can be given here to the righteous people, nor the wrongdoers and unbelievers can be punished here wholly and properly.


Generally, the capability of the things appear in the world, but perfect competency and full hidden abilities of the mankind do not become manifest during the limited life of this world. Therefore it is compulsory that for their full appearance, the mankind’s life should be continued even after death. Chain of its improvement should be maintained and opportunity to its strength and abilities for prospering should be provided to reach the last stage. For this purpose, coming back to life again and occurrence of the Resurrection are certainly necessary.
