4.  Lo! as for those who believe not in the Hereafter, We have made their works fair-seeming unto them so that they are all astray.

Commentary

 

Tulaqqaa – (is given), this word is from tal-qiyatun, which means “to bring a thing together with any other”. It aims “to give or to convey”. It has been derived from laq-yun, which means “to meet, to be joined”. The words mulaaqaat (interview, meeting, visit) and ‘alqaa’ (inspiration) have come out from the same.

 

It has been commanded in this verse: The people, who do not believe in the Hereafter, they consider that only this world is everything. They have become mad with love of its beauty and decoration. They give priority to do such works, by which their respect may increase and they may acquire more wealth and property. Their worldly deeds have been made pleasing to them. So they have been entangled in the same deeds and wasting their time in useless matters.

 

They will get nothing but despair and dejection after death. O Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him): Let them do as they wish. Those are the ones for whom there will be the worst of punishment, and in the Hereafter they are the greatest losers. Your Lord, Who is The Wise and The Knowing, has bestowed this Qur’an to you, in which best contents have been filled.

Commentary

The verses of Holy Qur’an were sent down occasionally along with the Commandments according to the circumstances. At the time of descending, arrangement order was not regarded, but timely need was paid regard. If the Holy Qur’an had been sent down all at once, then concerning required Commandments would have been searched from the entire Qur’an at the time of necessity and every case could not be settled finally at the spot, because time barred decision becomes useless.

 

It is the reason that even in the presence of complete Holy Qur’an, there was a need of Hadith {the Sayings of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him)} also because in it, a finder can find final decision immediately at any particular occasion. And because that is decision (Saying) of the Messenger of Allaah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), so it can never be contrary to the spirit of Holy Qur’an. Later on, when it was felt difficult to find out the commandment quickly, then need of Theology (the Science of the Muslim Law) arose. Principles of finding the commandments mentioned in Qur’an and Hadith were determined and different decisions in proper form were prepared separately at one place in a Book, which was called Fiqah. After coming of the Revelation, every verse was placed with the configuration in concerning Chapter according to Sayings of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). When entire verses were recorded in order, then Holy Qur’an came in the form of a Book.

 

Therefore, it is commanded, these verses, which are being recited before you, are of Holy Qur’an, which is a compiled and written in a manifest way Scripture. From it, those people will get guidance and good tidings, who believe in Allaah Almighty and His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), and who establish worship regularly, pay the poor-due according to the Commandment, and believe that they would have to be reproduced after death and to enter in the World of Hereafter.
