A false thought

Chapter Furqaan”- {The Criterion (of Right and Wrong)} – 25

‘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)


وَيَوْمَ يَحْشُرُهُمْ وَمَا يَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ فَيَقُولُ ءَأَنتُمْ أَضْلَلْتُمْ عِبَادِى هَٰٓؤُلَآءِ أَمْ هُمْ ضَلُّوا۟ ٱلسَّبِيلَ 17

17.  And on the Day when He will assemble them and that which they worship instead of Allah and will say: Was it ye who misled these My slaves or did they (themselves) wander from the Way? 17.  Wa  Yawma  yah-shuruhum  wa  maa  ya’-buduuna  min  duuNillaahi  fayaquulu  ‘A-‘antum  ‘azlaltum  ‘ibaaDii  haaa-‘ulaaa-‘I  ‘am  hum  zallus-Sabiil.



How can a particular form of everything of the world come into existence spontaneously, including its peculiarities according to its suitableness and its functions? Different and separate kinds of the creatures from one another, a separate law for every kind and running of all such separate laws together under the authority of a great Law, these all matters have been pointing out clearly that there is One Who created them, Who knows everything and Who is Aware of everything’s expedience.


Only He (The Creator of everything) is Who  arranged to guide the mankind in accord with His prescribed Law; and sent His last Messenger Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) along with His last Scripture (Holy Qur’an), so that the human beings may learn concerning good and evil deeply. The people who do not believe in these matters and have been pleased upon apparent worldly matters, in fact they have been entangled in error that “the life of this world is everything and after death there will be nothing”.


It has been commanded in this verse: It is a false thought. Every human being will be brought to life again after death and Allaah Almighty will assemble all of them at a place along with those (gods) to whom they used to adore. Then He will ask from their gods: Did you say to the people who have been standing before you that they should either deny Allaah Almighty or having belief in Him also they should worship you, or did they begin to adore you themselves? We have to decide Today (the Day of Judgment) that whether did you mislead them or did they (themselves) wander from the Way? They had seen clear signs, even then they did not accept that Allaah Almighty was their God, and they adored others instead of Him.
