Worship your Lord, Allah
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)
يَعْلَمُ مَا بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَمَا خَلْفَهُمْ وَإِلَى ٱللَّهِ تُرْجَعُ ٱلْأُمُورُ 76
يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ ٱرْكَعُوا۟ وَٱسْجُدُوا۟ وَٱعْبُدُوا۟ رَبَّكُمْ وَٱفْعَلُوا۟ ٱلْخَيْرَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ 77
|76. He knoweth all that is before them and all that is behind them, and unto Allah all things are returned.
77. O ye who believe! Bow down and prostrate yourselves, and worship your Lord, and do good, that haply ye may prosper.
|76. Ya’-lamu maa bayna ‘ay-diihim wa maa khalfahum. Wa ‘ilAllaahi turja-‘ul-‘umuur.
77. Yaaa-‘ayyu-hallaziina ‘aa-manur-ka-‘uu wasjuduu wa’-buduu Rabbakum waf-‘alul-khayra la-‘allakum tuflihuun.
(As-Sajdah – Bow down)
Maa bayna ‘ay-diihim wa maa khalfahum – (all that is before them and all that is behind them), this sentence has already passed at various place including ‘Aayatul-Kursii (2:255).
It is commanded: Who can be a Greater Guide and Guardian than Allaah Almighty? Who is, Who help the mankind at the time of afflictions and teach him how to pass a comfortable and peaceful life, after setting him free from every kind of misfortunes? Having hope that someone else instead of Allaah Almighty will be of your use, is ignorance because a Friend and Protector can be only that Person Who; at first; knows well the condition of that person who seeks help, and secondly; He has as much power and authority that He may provide everything at the time of requirement. If you will meditate, you will find that such person does not exist in the entire world. Every individual has limited knowledge, deficient strength and incompetent authority. Only Allaah Almighty is Who has complete knowledge, full power and entire omnipotence. You should know Him carefully and bow before Him wholeheartedly. If some people begin to disobey His commandment, they will hurt themselves. It is the duty of the Believers that they should not prostrate before any other than Allaah Almighty. For such people it is commanded: Bow down and prostrate yourselves before Allaah Almighty, grip up your loins to worship Him only and do good works for His cause. You should never go near evil deeds. The people, who will choose this Way, will succeed in this world as well as on the Day of Resurrection too. And they will dwell peacefully and comfortably at both places.
