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)
ٱلَّذِينَ إِن مَّكَّنَّٰهُمْ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ أَقَامُوا۟ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَءَاتَوُا۟ ٱلزَّكَوٰةَ وَأَمَرُوا۟ بِٱلْمَعْرُوفِ وَنَهَوْا۟ عَنِ ٱلْمُنكَرِ وَلِلَّهِ عَٰقِبَةُ ٱلْأُمُورِ 41
|41. Those who, if We give them power in the land, establish worship and pay the poor-due and enjoin good and forbid evil. And Allah’s is the sequel of events.||41. ‘Allaziina ‘im-makkan-Naahum fil-‘arzi ‘aqaamus-Salaata wa ‘aata-wuz-Zakaata wa ‘amaruu bil-Ma’-ruufi wa nahaw ‘anil-Munkar. Wa Lillaahi ‘aaqibatul- ‘umuur.|
Makkan-Naa – (We give Power), this word is from tamkiin which has been derived from makaan. Makaan means “Place”. Tamkiin means “to give under possession:. Here it aims “to bestow kingdom/authority”.
It is being commanded to the Idolaters of Makkah: You have been prepared to repel and seize the Muslims due to ignorance and giving preference to your casual worldly benefits, but you should bear in mind that this time, the world has been filled with vicious and selfish people like you. If such tyrant people are not pressed down then living of the mankind will become very difficult in future; and together they will afflict and molest one another. Therefore, it is necessary according to the rule, which has been described in the previous verse that “A such nation should be raised which should correct the sense and understanding of the people of the entire world”.
These handful people, who have been cooperating with the last Messenger Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), will become Muslim Nation (Ummah) in future. Their word and deed will be a pattern for the world. They will be obedient and worshipers of One God (Allaah Almighty). They will not fill with wealth only their own pockets but go ahead along with their poor national brothers by helping them. One portion of their wealth will be fixed for the needy people. They will enjoin good and forbid evil. Today you look down upon them due to their distressed condition and think to repel them.
In future, the world will see that how much they have improved themselves. Don’t think about their preliminary weakness. Every matter is in the Power of Allaah Almighty. Being ignorant this time, you do not understand that these are the People, whom Allaah Almighty has chosen for correction and arrangement of the world. However, the consequence of everything is in the Power of Allaah Almighty. Assuredly He will get completed His work by their hands.
