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)
So much abundant tokens regarding perfect Omnipotence of Allaah Almighty exist in the universe that none can remain in any doubt concerning the existence of Allaah Almighty; by observing them. It is another matter that someone looks these portents but even then he remains involved in ignorance, and evades by saying that “It is routine of the world, so it is not fruitful to consider that it is an important affair”.
It has been commanded in these verses that if you set other tokens aside, but meditate in the creation and state of the mankind’s growth; and the changes which occur in the circumstances of the earth only, then you will find out that “Existence of Allaah Almighty is incumbent. Otherwise, there can be no reasonable cause of creating this wonderful Art, artistic work and circumstances of arrangements and systems. “Coming of anything into being spontaneously” is not understandable. Therefore, it will be necessary to believe that these entire wonders are by the Omnipotence and Intention of Allaah Almighty. Correct knowledge and sense of mankind; and Heavenly Scriptures guide us to reach the same result. The people who do not find it out as it is, their knowledge is inexpert and their thought is sick. They put the Heavenly Scriptures behind their back, whereas without the Light of the Scriptures, human sense cannot work properly, and it stumbles hither and thither.
In the above mentioned verse, this grievous incident has been described effectively. It is commanded: Even in the presence of so much open portents, some people do not believe in Allaah Almighty. They do not know the worth of His Messengers (peace be upon them) and consider that His Scriptures are nothing. Particularly, they do not give any importance to the last Messenger of Allaah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) and His last Scripture i.e. Holy Qur’an, which is a Summary of the entire Heavenly Scriptures. Their knowledge is equal of ignorance. Their arguments are weightless. Their sense has been enclosed in deep darkness. Indeed, that person learnt nothing who studied during his entire age, practised to bring out results from sciences, honored the magnificent Book of Allaah Almighty, but by keeping himself away from it and closing his eyes; neither he believed in Allaah Almighty; nor knew the Messengers (peace be upon them) and nor learned to open his eyes in the Light of Allaah’s Book. He has fallen into blind imitation only.
