Despair of idolaters

Chapter RUUM” – (THE ROMANS) – 30

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahiminash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.

 (I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

 

ٱللَّهُ يَبْدَؤُا۟ ٱلْخَلْقَ ثُمَّ يُعِيدُهُۥ ثُمَّ إِلَيْهِ تُرْجَعُونَ 11  وَيَوْمَ تَقُومُ ٱلسَّاعَةُ يُبْلِسُ ٱلْمُجْرِمُونَ 12  وَلَمْ يَكُن لَّهُم مِّن شُرَكَآئِهِمْ شُفَعَٰٓؤُا۟ وَكَانُوا۟ بِشُرَكَآئِهِمْ كَٰفِرِينَ 13

11.  Allah produceth creation, then He reproduceth it, then unto Him ye will be returned.

 

12.  And in the Day when the Hour riseth the guilty will despair.

 

13.  And there will be none to intercede for them of those whom they made equal with Allah. And they will reject their partners (whom they ascribed unto them).

11.  ‘Allaahu  Yabda-‘ul-khalqa  summa  Yu-‘iiduhuu  summa  ‘ilayHi  turja-‘uun.

 

12.  Wa  Yawma  taquumus-Saa-‘atu  yublisul-mujrimuun.

 

13.  Wa  lam  yakul-lahum-min  Shurakaaa-‘ihim  shufa-‘aaa-‘u  wa  kaanuu  bi-Shurakaaa-‘ihim  kaafiriin.

Commentary

The people used to reject the Day of Resurrection and say: How the human body will be reproduced after its destruction? They were unable to understand that while the entire body parts would become dust, and the dust of the body would be mixed up with the entire dust of the earth, then these human bodies, which are beyond calculation, would be brought back to life in their original forms and they would stand up. By observing in a cursory manner it seemed to them difficult and they used to steal away from thinking deeply; for the reason that they used to like worldly engagements and dislike thinking about such matters; by leaving their employments, in which they used to consider that there was no benefit.

 

In these verses, it is being described to them: There is no need to think carefully about understanding the maxim of “next life after death”. It is a matter of common sense that new human beings are being born before you. Their bodies were not created in advance, then how did they come into existence? What is difficult in its acceptance that as their bodies did not exist earlier but they were created, like this, being perished after birth, they will be reproduced?

 

It is commanded: Give up all disputes! It is a simple thing that – as Allaah Almighty is, Who creates first time while He does not have any sample, like this He will reproduce also after death and destruction, because even now a sample too exists before Him. Believe in Him and have faith that all of you will be reproduced by the Divine Power of Allaah Almighty and the Day of Resurrection will be established. On that Day, His disobedient people will be victims of extremely hopelessness. Their self-made gods will not be able to help them or intercede for them. And their adorers will say themselves that these are not their gods.

Lessons from Holy Qur'an

Evil is consequence of that who deals in evil

Quran Chapter 30: 9b & 10 (Pt-21, Stg-5) (L-2511) درس قرآن

Evil is consequence of that who deals in evil

Chapter RUUM” – (THE ROMANS) – 30

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahiminash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.

 (I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

 

كَانُوٓا۟ أَشَدَّ مِنْهُمْ قُوَّةً وَأَثَارُوا۟ ٱلْأَرْضَ وَعَمَرُوهَآ أَكْثَرَ مِمَّا عَمَرُوهَا وَجَآءَتْهُمْ رُسُلُهُم بِٱلْبَيِّنَٰتِ فَمَا كَانَ ٱللَّهُ لِيَظْلِمَهُمْ وَلَٰكِن كَانُوٓا۟ أَنفُسَهُمْ يَظْلِمُونَ 9b  ثُمَّ كَانَ عَٰقِبَةَ ٱلَّذِينَ أَسَٰٓـُٔوا۟ ٱلسُّوٓأَىٰٓ أَن كَذَّبُوا۟ بِـَٔايَٰتِ ٱللَّهِ وَكَانُوا۟ بِهَا يَسْتَهْزِءُونَ 10

9b.  They were stronger than these in power, and they dug the earth and built upon it more than these have built; and messengers of their own came unto them with Clear Proofs (of Allah’s Sovereignty). Surely Allah wronged them not, but they did wrong themselves.

 

10.  Then evil was the consequence to those who dealt in evil, because they denied the Revelations of Allah and made a mock of them.

9b.  Kaanuuu  ‘ashadda  minhum  quwwatanw-wa  ‘asaarul-‘arza  wa  ‘amaruu-haaa  ‘aksara  mimmaa  ‘amaruuhaa  wa  jaaa-‘at-hum  rusuluhum-  bil-Bayyinaat.  Famaa  kaanAllaahu  liyaz-limahum  wa  laakin-  kaanuuu  ‘anfusahum  yazlimuun.

 

10.  Summa  kaana  ‘Aaqibatal-laziina  ‘asaaa-‘ussuuu-‘aaa  ‘an  kazzabuu  bi-‘Aayaa-Tillaahi  wa  kaanuu  bihaa  yastahzi-‘uun. 

(Section 1)

Commentary

 

‘Asaaruu = (they dug, they ploughed), it is in Past Tense from the word Sawratun, which means “appearance of passion”. ‘Isaaratun means “to raise up, to plough, to bring the lower portion of stratum of the earth out by digging”.

 

They should know that ancient people were greater than them in power. They used to dig the earth, build wells, plough the land and make the earth habitable more than the people of nowadays. But they had been entangled in evil deeds. Prophets (peace be upon them) came to explain before them and showed them clear proofs of their truth. But they did not believe in them (peace be upon them) and at last they were ruined. Allaah Almighty would not ever have wronged them, but they were wronging themselves. They committed wrong deeds and disobeyed the Commands of Allaah Almighty. Ultimately, they were destroyed due to punishment of their wicked deeds. And this punishment will not come to an end in this world, but even after death they will be tormented more than present life, because they denied the Words of Allaah Almighty and mocked. It is not an ordinary matter, but its consequence is bad not only in this world but in the Hereafter too.
