It is commanded: Glory of Allaah Almighty be Exalted from it that He gave much power to the mankind and authorized him to use it, not for only making him a toy, but he has been made responsible for his deeds and answerable before his Lord in the life after death. Whatsoever anybody has done, will enjoy or suffer from the consequence of his worldly deeds. Remember it! The True King is Allaah Almighty. There is none save Him who may have full power and who may bring up all living beings without partnership of any other. Worship is only for Him and only He Alone is the Worshiped. He Alone is the Owner of the greatest Throne of the entire universe. The person, who will bow before any other also along with Him and who will deem that someone else is Worshiped too along with Allaah Almighty, he is obstinate and has been following own groundless thoughts. He has no proof of it that someone other is also god along with Allaah Almighty. Reckoning of his worldly deeds will be only with his True Lord, Allaah Almighty.


The people who have denied Allaah Almighty in the world, certainly they will be empty handed on the Day of Resurrection. Deliverance and success will not be for such kind of people. They will not be able to describe its reason before Allaah Almighty that why had they been flattering others instead of Him? Why did they not find that their Creator, their Lord and their Owner is Allaah Almighty? However, you should leave them on their state and say always: My Lord! Forgive and have mercy, for You are Best of all who show mercy!
