A faction of the people turns away

Chapter Nuur” – (Light) – 24

‘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)


لَّقَدْ أَنزَلْنَآ ءَايَٰتٍ مُّبَيِّنَٰتٍ وَٱللَّهُ يَهْدِى مَن يَشَآءُ إِلَىٰ صِرَٰطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ 46  وَيَقُولُونَ ءَامَنَّا بِٱللَّهِ وَبِٱلرَّسُولِ وَأَطَعْنَا ثُمَّيَتَوَلَّىٰ فَرِيقٌ مِّنْهُم مِّنۢ بَعْدِ ذَٰلِكَ وَمَآ أُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ بِٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ 47


46.  Verily We have sent down Revelations and explained them. And Allah guideth whom He will unto a Straight Path.


47.  And they say: We believe in Allah and the Messenger, and we obey; then after that a faction of them turns away. And these are not Believers.

46.  Laqad  ‘anzalNaaa  ‘Aayaa-tim-mubayyinaat.  Wallaahu  yahdii  many-yashaaa-‘u  ‘ilaa  Siraatim-Mustaqiim.


47.  Wa  yaquuluuna  ‘aamannaa  Billaahi  wa  bir-Rasuuli  wa  ‘ata’-naa  summa  yatawallaa  fariiqum-minhum-mim-  ba’-di  zaalik.  Wa  maaa  ‘ulaaa-‘ika  bil-Mu’-miniin.




Allaah Almighty sent the mankind in this world for dwelling after giving him a good countenance, body in good condition, mind for thinking and strong heart, where there have been spreading everywhere – great, beautiful and very attractive natural scenes, delicious foods and drinkables, goods of ease and comfort. But Allaah Almighty has put such portents into all of them; by which the mankind can know Him easily. He desires that the mankind should see these portents and by them; he should comprehend Him, bow before Him and in accord with His Commandment; he should reap advantage from the things of the world.


It has been commanded in these verses: O the children of Adam! Forget Us not by involving in the matters of this world. We have spread the tokens of Our Omnipotence all around in the world. Moreover, We have revealed clear verses of Holy Qur’an unto Our Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) for your guidance. Those verses manifest the Truth entirely. But often the sense of the mankind is concealed with the veils of the wishes. No one can get guidance without Grace of God Almighty. He illuminates the sense of that person with His Light; to whom He wills. And in that Light, his sense guides him towards the Straight Path. Some are such people who say by their mouths that they believe in Allaah Almighty, His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) and they are ready to obey all Commandments. But when the time of obedience comes, they turn away. After the claim of belief and obedience, they choose rebellion. In fact, their claim was false. They did never believe. So it is found that they are useless and deceivers.
