‘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)
وَإِذَابَلَغَ ٱلْأَطْفَٰلُ مِنكُمُ ٱلْحُلُمَ فَلْيَسْتَـْٔذِنُوا۟ كَمَا ٱسْتَـْٔذَنَ ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ كَذَٰلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ ٱللَّهُ لَكُمْ ءَايَٰتِهِۦ وَٱللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌ 59
|59. And when the children among you come to puberty then let them ask leave even as those before them used to ask it. Thus Allah maketh clear His Revelations for you. And Allah is Knower, Wise.||59. Wa ‘izaa balagal-‘atfaalu min-kumul-huluma falyasta’-zinuu kamasta’-zanal-laziina min- qablihim. Kazaalika yu-bayyi-nUllaahu lakum ‘AayaatiH. Wallaahu ‘Aliimun Hakiim.|
It has been commanded in this verse: As long as the boys are wards, they can go round everywhere in the house without asking leave save during the times of privacy, as it has been mentioned earlier. But when they come to puberty, then they come in the category of those men who have already been living at home before them. They should abide by those rules, which have been explained in the previous verses concerning keeping the sight below and coming in the houses and going out. Allaah Almighty has manifested His commandments for you very clearly and because He is well Aware of everything’s and every matter’s reality and philosophy, so He determines such rules for human society, abiding by of which; the mankind can pass a chaste life in the world.
It is obvious that by breaking the rules prescribed by Allaah Almighty and opposing His commandments, all parts of human life will be spoiled, whether those are about domestic circumstances or belong to society, one’s country or national, whether those are concerning employment or meeting with the people and trade, the people will neither find rest and pleasure anywhere and nor any ease in any matter. And if the carelessness from the side of His commandments increased uniformly, then this depravity will also increase continuously.
Found from it; is that only He can make the laws, the principles, the rules and the regulations, Who have more knowledge and experience than all others and Whose wisdom is perfect, so that He may know the philosophy of the commandments. Wisdom and knowledge are required for making the laws. Great assemblies and parliaments etc. are useful till such limit; as far as those may increase sense and science. Result of collecting the ignorant people is nothing but waste of time and useless turbulence.
