Presence before God
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)
وَيَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ مَا لَمْ يُنَزِّلْ بِهِۦ سُلْطَٰنًا وَمَا لَيْسَ لَهُم بِهِۦ عِلْمٌ وَمَا لِلظَّٰلِمِينَ مِن نَّصِيرٍ 71
|71. And they worship instead of Allah that for which He hath sent down no warrant, and that whereof they have no knowledge. And for evildoers there is no helper.||71. Wa ya’-buduuna min- duuNillaahi maa lam yunazzil biHii sultaananw-wa maa laysa lahum- bihii ‘ilm. Wa maa liz-zaalimiina min-nasiir.|
Sultaanun – (warrant), this is an origin from sa-la-ta. Sultan means “power, hold, argument, and proof”. Here it aims “proof”.
It is commanded: Existence of the universe and its wonderful management have been witnessing over the Existence of Allaah Almighty and the Belief in His Oneness. If the mankind does reflect, he will come to know that everything which exists in the world, has been putting in order and that does not cross the limit of the Established Law. Place and function, origin and end of everything is known to its Creator.
He is, Who has fixed the length of everything’s time, in which it shows its bloom and then at last it departs. For the mankind, this Law has also been determined that after departing from the worldly life, his entire worldly deeds will be examined, and he will be retaliated according to his deeds. These all matters have been describing that only Allaah Almighty is Who can be God of the mankind, Who is actual Lord and Emperor of the entire worlds.
It is unknown that by leaving such Worshiped; about Whose Existence; everything of the world has been witnessing, why the mankind adores such things; concerning which nothing of the world gives any evidence that it can be God, and bowing before which is against the dignity and magnificence of the mankind? As much the knowledge of the mankind will increase, so much he will come to know gradually that worshiping any other that Allaah Almighty is a great injustice. The person, who has been doing so, has been doing wrong. Like this, having belief in Allaah Almighty, ascribing plurality to Him in His Nature or Epithets is also a great transgression.
Remember it that your all self-fabricated gods will be useless when you will stand in need of any help. Every mankind will be presented before Allaah Almighty and nothing will be able to save them from His Wrath.
