World is not for sitting in a corner

World is not for sitting in a corner

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)

It has been understood clearly from previous verses that after bestowing with variegated powers along with giving sense to the mankind, he has been sent in this world of various colors that he should take work from these powers and forces according to his sense. The goodness shines in the world then when it meets the evil face to face, the people dash together independently and fight well against one another. The virtuous people will get victory when they will fight the wrongdoers and show their success.


It is apparent that the world has not been created for sitting in a corner. Every individual have to get ready for confronting every time in it, that is to say, the world is a field of trying and striving. But it should also be deemed carefully that fighting against one another for worldly advantages is not Quranic Jihad. Neither any individual and nor any group should gather and use his power for exercising authority upon any other. It is unreasonable matter that wealth and property is collected more than others by fighting or terrifying weapons are invented for seizing other people.


Holy Qur’an causes to understand the human beings that use of own powers against one another for acquiring worldly benefits is as destruction of the time only. Trying to increase own wealth and property, rank and dignity is consequently cause of ruin.


Holy Qur’an teaches to the entire human beings that they should never fight mutually against one another for fulfilling worldly requirements, but they should work with mutual cooperation. Opposing one another for acquiring worldly dignities is miserable. The people should compete only for getting good virtues. Everyone should try to do good works more than others, escape from sins and lead others in well-wishing.


Holy Qur’an describes also that good manners, good habits, good works and good thoughts (all such matters) have been manifested in it for the mankind and the Messenger Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) has explained also their way of learning. Allaah Almighty tests the people now that whether they follow His chosen way or use the powers of their heart and mind for fulfilling worldly desires only?
