Believe today and reap advantage after death

Chapter Qasas”- (The Story) – 28

‘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)

وَلَوْلَآ أَن تُصِيبَهُم مُّصِيبَةٌۢ بِمَا قَدَّمَتْ أَيْدِيهِمْ فَيَقُولُوا۟ رَبَّنَا لَوْلَآ أَرْسَلْتَ إِلَيْنَا رَسُولًا فَنَتَّبِعَ ءَايَٰتِكَ وَنَكُونَ مِنَ ٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ 47  فَلَمَّا جَآءَهُمُ ٱلْحَقُّ مِنْ عِندِنَا قَالُوا۟ لَوْلَآ أُوتِىَ مِثْلَ مَآ أُوتِىَ مُوسَىٰٓ أَوَلَمْ يَكْفُرُوا۟ بِمَآ أُوتِىَ مُوسَىٰ مِن قَبْلُ   48a

47.  Otherwise, if disaster should afflict them because of that which their own hands have sent before (them), they might say: Our Lord! Why sendest Thou no messenger unto us, that we might have followed Thy Revelations and been of the Believers?


48a.  But when there came unto them the Truth from Our Presence, they said: Why is he not given the like of what was given unto Moses? Did they not disbelieve in that which was given unto Moses of old?

47.  Wa  law-laaa  ‘an-  tusiibahum-  musiibatum-  bimaa  qaddamat  ‘aydiihim  fayaquuluu  Rabbanaa  law-laaa  ‘arsalTa  ‘ilaynaa  rasuulan  fanattabi-‘a  ‘AayaatiKa  wa  nakuuna  minal-  Mu’-miniin.


48a.  Falammaa  jaaa-‘ahumul-Haqqu  min  ‘indiNaa  qaaluu  law-laaa  ‘uutiya  misla  maaa  ‘uutiya  Muusaa.  ‘Awa-  lam  yakfuruu  bimaaa  ‘uutiya  Muusaa  min-  qabl.


Man is a strange creature also. He says that he should do as he desires. If it is said to him that following own desires is not good, particularly when contrary to it is correct, then he makes such excuses which he himself had already rejected. It has been commanded in this verse: If the Messengers (peace be upon them) were not sent and any disaster would have fallen on them suddenly due to their wicked deeds, then they would have said: Our Lord, why did You not send a Messenger for our guidance, so that we could have obeyed him, followed Your verses and been among the Believers? It is the reason that We sent Our Prophets (peace be upon them) before time, so that they may not say so at the time of their punishment.


Now a Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) has come and he has described to them concerning the true matters, but they do not believe in him and make excuses that why he has not been given such Miracles; which were given to Moses (peace be upon him) OR why the Scripture (Qur’an) has not been given to him all at once as Torah was given to Moses (peace be upon him)? Why is it being revealed by degrees? Whereas before this; these people have rejected the Miracles of Moses (peace be upon him) and the Scripture (Torah), brought by him. Their antipathy is from the Truth. They wish to do according to their will. They do not think concerning true and false, but reject all that which is against their desires. And its reason is that; which they have already refused.
