Little do you remember!
Chapter “Naml”- (The Ant) – 27
‘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)
أَمَّن يُجِيبُ ٱلْمُضْطَرَّ إِذَا دَعَاهُ وَيَكْشِفُ ٱلسُّوٓءَ وَيَجْعَلُكُمْ خُلَفَآءَ ٱلْأَرْضِ أَءِلَٰهٌ مَّعَ ٱللَّهِ قَلِيلًا مَّا تَذَكَّرُونَ 62
|62. Is not He (Best) Who answereth the wronged one when he calls up on Him and removeth the evil, and hath made you viceroys of the earth? Is there any God beside Allah? Little do they reflect!||62. ‘Ammany-yujiibul-muztarra ‘izaa da-‘aahu wa yakshifus-suuu-‘a wa yaj-‘alukum khulafaaa-‘al-‘arz. ‘A-‘ilaahum-ma-‘Allaah. Qaliilam-maa tazakkaruun.|
Muztarrun – (the wronged one, the desperate one), it is the Passive participle from the word ‘iztiraar (coercion, restraint, compulsion), which has been derived from zarar. Zurrun and zararun means “suffering, misfortune, calamity”. ‘Iztiraar means “to be restless due to any misery and ache. Muztarrun means “the person who has been besieged in any calamity”.
The Idolaters of Arab too had belief like other Idolaters that Allaah Almighty is the Greatest and the Worshipped, but they used to adore the Idols. They had set up this false thought in their mind by supposing as the Kings of the world that the superiors do nothing, instead of them; the inferiors do work for them. They used to give the same grades to the Idols which are of a Minister and Treasurer etc. before the Kings. However, if any disaster used to fell suddenly; as being entangled of any ship in a storm etc. then at that time they used to call only upon Allaah Almighty.
It is being asked from such insensible people: These Idols are deaf and dumb. Neither these can hear call of any person and nor can reply. When you yourselves become helpless, you invoke Allaah Almighty only; and He is; Who hears the call of every helpless and friendless, and if He desires; removes the calamity. Moreover, He bestows you power on the earth at the place of others. Is there any other who may have such power? While no, then why do you make others adored instead of Him? The actual matter is that you do not use your sense properly. If you have the mind at work, you will find the correct result, but you do not think.
