‘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)

إِنَّمَا كَانَ قَوْلَ ٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ إِذَا دُعُوٓا۟ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِۦ لِيَحْكُمَ بَيْنَهُمْ أَن يَقُولُوا۟ سَمِعْنَاوَأَطَعْنَا وَأُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلْمُفْلِحُونَ 51  وَمَن يُطِعِ ٱللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُۥ وَيَخْشَ ٱللَّهَ وَيَتَّقْهِ فَأُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلْفَآئِزُونَ 52

51.  The saying of (all true) Believers when they are called unto Allah and His Messenger to judge between them is only that they say: We hear and we obey. And such are the Successful.


52.  He who obeyeth Allah and His Messenger, and feareth Allah, and keepeth duty (unto Him); such indeed are the Victorious.

51.  ‘Innamaa  kaana  qawlal-Mu’-miniina  ‘izaa  du-‘uuu  ‘ilAllaahi  wa  RasuuliHii  li-yahkuma  baynahum  ‘any-yaquuluu  “Sami’-naa  wa  ‘ata’-naa”.  Wa  ‘ulaaa-‘ika  humul-Muflihuun.


52.  Wa  many-yuti-‘Illaaha  wa  RasuulaHuu  wa  yakhshAllaaha  wa  yattaqHi  fa-‘ulaaa-‘ika  humul- Faaa-‘izuun.




Way of practice concerning hypocrites was described in the previous verses and it was informed that only those people can do so; whose hearts did not accept the influence of Belief. They say by their mouths; only for showing that they are servants of Islam, faithful and obedient slaves of Allaah Almighty. But when the time of trial comes, they don’t care about Islam and do what their hearts wish.


It has been commanded in this verse: It is not the manner of the Believers. Their habit is it that when they are called towards Allaah Almighty and His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) for judgment in their disputes, they attend most willingly, without thinking about their profit and loss. And they regard it as true that whatsoever will be judged by the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), will be quite correct, and the rightful will be provided his right. These are the people who will succeed, because the rule has been made that desires of those people will be fulfilled on the Day of Resurrection who will be obedient of Allaah Almighty and His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), will have fear of Allaah Almighty in their hearts every time and abstain from the things forbidden by Him. Actual and perpetual success is only for such people. But the people, who will commit contrary to it; they will weep and cry on that Day.
