(Section 9)




It was commanded previously that when these idolaters hear the Revelations of Holy Qur’an, they are troubled in mind and become mad completely in the rage. It seems that they will begin to beat now to the person who recites the Revelations.


It has been commanded in this verse: Say O Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) to these people: Which you are feeling yourselves in vexation by hearing the Revelations of Holy Qur’an, worse burning than it will be by another thing. I explain before you if you ask! You are feeling pain at this time because your passions have been connected with immoral and good-for-nothing matters. If you turn your thoughts away from such matters, then your entire confusions and anxieties will scamper off immediately. But if you did not give up these useless matters, then as true and clear Revelations of Qur’an have been troubling in your mind at this time, worse than it; that thing will burn you in punishment of your wicked deeds, which I wish to describe. Listen to me! That thing is “the Fire of the Hell”.


It is a strong promise of Allaah Almighty that the Fire of the Hell will be appointed on those people who do not desire to hear true Revelations of Holy Qur’an in this world. And they are displeased with the person who causes to hear them the commandments mentioned in Holy Qur’an. Hear also after it that the worst abode in the life after death will be “the Hell”. Your enmity with Holy Qur’an will carry and cast you into it. Therefore you should use your sense correctly. Why have you been planting thorns in favor of yourselves?


Behold! You have a good chance at this time to save yourselves. If you will not be careless, then you will see that how the Revelations of Holy Qur’an quench your hearts in the world, and how easily you can escape from the Hell on the Doomsday.
