Despair of idolaters
Chapter “RUUM” – (THE ROMANS) – 30
‘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)
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.
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.
