Bearing difficulties in the Path of Allah

Chapter ’Al-‘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)

The Muslims, who were few in numbers and had been bearing great troubles from the hands of Infidels in Makkah, strengthened themselves so much that they got completely ready wholeheartedly to endure every kind of toil and labor in the Path of Allaah Almighty. In this Chapter, ocean of the desire of pleasing and sympathy has been boiling up along with dignity of satisfaction; so much that before which; confusion, sadness and restlessness cannot stay in any condition. Even in the present circumstances too, this Chapter encourages those Muslims who are embarrassed, as it used to embolden in the past. But belief and faith of these Muslims have been decreased comparing to those slaves of Allaah Almighty, who heard it in the beginning and cherished in their hearts, and who had strong belief and faith. Its way of explanation is so much rare that a mankind cannot think. It touches the heart directly by means of the ears.


It is commanded: O Muslims! As you have accepted Allaah Almighty, so you should be ready for trial. Belief is not mere words, but it is tested that whether it has influence on the heart or otherwise. The Belief takes ones heart which can never be removed by anyone. Belief of all ancient people was examined. Those, who passed this examination; became rich in blessings of the world and the Hereafter.


It is commanded: These ignorant people cannot escape from Us who have been troubling you. Molesting by them becomes cause of increasing your grades. Behold! You should never ascribe plurality to Allaah Almighty. Even you should not obey your parents if they say to you to leave Islam. So, none can push you back from Oneness of God. Hurting by any mankind is nothing against the torment of Allaah Almighty. The idolaters will tempt you that you should give up Islam and adopt old way of paganism and infidelity, but you should not fall into their scheming. They cannot profit you in any matter. Think about ancient nations that how did they disbelieve in Allaah Almighty and were entangled in different kinds of destruction. Their wicked deeds became misfortune for them. No one could save them from the Wrath of Allaah Almighty. However those who believed and obeyed the Commands of Allaah Almighty, He made them rich in blessings of the world and in the Hereafter also, they will have great degrees. You should not take the world into consideration. This jollity is only for a few days which will be finished. And they will severely be punished after death, in the next life, who think only about the life of this world. Then they will repent. The last Message of this Chapter, which is Water of Life is that, “those who will strive for Us – We will surely open for them the way of success. Allaah Almighty is with them who do good works honestly and sincerely.
