A Reminder for all

Chapter Mu’-minuun” – (The Believers) – 23

‘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)

أَمْ يَقُولُونَ بِهِۦ جِنَّةٌۢبَلْ جَآءَهُم بِٱلْحَقِّ وَأَكْثَرُهُمْ لِلْحَقِّ كَٰرِهُونَ 70

وَلَوِ ٱتَّبَعَ ٱلْحَقُّ أَهْوَآءَهُمْ لَفَسَدَتِ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتُ وَٱلْأَرْضُ وَمَن فِيهِنَّ بَلْ أَتَيْنَٰهُم بِذِكْرِهِمْ فَهُمْ عَن ذِكْرِهِم مُّعْرِضُونَ 71


70b.  Nay, but he bringeth them the Truth; and most of them are haters of the Truth.


71.  And if the Truth had followed their desires, verily the heavens and the earth and whosoever is therein had been corrupted. Nay, We have brought them their Reminder, but from their Reminder they now turn away.

70b.  Bal  jaaa-‘ahum  bil-Haqqi  wa  ‘aksaruhum  lil-Haqqi  kaarihuun.


71.  Wa  la-wittaba-‘al-Haqqu  ‘ahwaaa-‘ahum  lafasadatis-samaawaatu  wal-‘arzu  wa  man-  fiihinn.  Bal  ‘atayNaa-hum-  bi-Zikrihim  fahum  ‘an-  Zikrihim-mu’-rizuun.




Zikr – (Reminder), it aims such matters; upon which welfare of the mankind depends. The person who rejects the matter of his welfare, is ignorant.


It is commanded: These all are their vain imaginations and establishment of separate groups which have been removing them away from the Right Path. Those people who will listen to the verses of Holy Qur’an carefully and understand them, they will find certainly the Right Path. Our Messenger Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) is neither unaware and nor (God forbid) there is any madness in him. He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) is a truthful, upright, honest and sincere person. We chose him from the entire human beings of the world and sent Our Message for all the people of the world by means of him (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), which is a true and strict Message.


It did suit to the people of Arab that they had to hear his sayings minutely and become guide of the world themselves under his (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) supervision. But it is the misfortune that the Truth appears bitter for the ignorant and maximum of them are found as immature that they turn up their noses and knit their eyebrows because the Truth dashes with their worldly temporary benefits.


O ignorant people! If The True Lord and The Guardian of the entire worlds had followed your wishes, then the creatures of the heavens, the earth and between them would have been ruined. Be attentive! Your sayings are like of idiots. In fact, We have described you all useful matters by means of Our Chosen Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). If you gripped up your loins on rejecting the matters useful for you then surely you have become negligent.
