Choosing sinful professions
Chapter “’Ankabuut”- (The Spider) – 29
‘A-‘uu-zu Billaahiminash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)
(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)
وَإِلَىٰ مَدْيَنَ أَخَاهُمْ شُعَيْبًا فَقَالَ يَٰقَوْمِ ٱعْبُدُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَٱرْجُوا۟ ٱلْيَوْمَ ٱلْءَاخِرَ وَلَا تَعْثَوْا۟ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ مُفْسِدِينَ 36 فَكَذَّبُوهُ فَأَخَذَتْهُمُ ٱلرَّجْفَةُ فَأَصْبَحُوا۟ فِى دَارِهِمْ جَٰثِمِينَ 37
|36. And unto Midian We sent Shu’eyb, their brother; then he said; O my people! Serve Allah, and look forward to the Last Day, and do not evil, making mischief, in the earth.
37. But they denied him, so the dreadful earthquake took them, and morning found them prostrate in their dwelling place.
|36. Wa ‘ilaa Madyana ‘akhaahum Shu-‘ayban, faqaala yaaqawmi’-budUllaaha warjul-Yawmal-‘Aakhira wa laa ta’-saw fil-‘arzi mufsidiin.
37. Fakazzabuuhu fa-‘akhazat-humur-rajfatu fa-‘asbahuu fii daarihim jaasimiin.
It is commanded: Like this, the people of Midian forgot their Creator and the Sustainer entirely. They had imagined erroneously, like them who went astray, that they had power to do according to their will, and none could inquire from them.
The result was that those, who were more clever and awake in senses, began to trouble the simple people. When evil comes upon mankind, first of all he forgets Allaah Almighty and does not believe in the Day of Resurrection. It is the root of all depravities. One should fear that person like fear of any ravenous; who does not fear Allaah Almighty. Not known when and what will he do.
People of Midian gripped up their loins for robbing, acting dishonestly, deceiving, weighing less than the standard measure, borrowing and lending money on interest etc. were their ordinary professions. They denied Allaah Almighty, forgot the Day of Judgment and began to adore trees etc.
When Prophet Shu’ayb (peace be upon him) caused to understand them, they did not care. At last very dreadful earthquake came which seized them, and they were seen fallen prone corpses in the morning within their homes.
