Consequence of injustice
Chapter “RUUM”- (The Romans) – 30
‘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)
وَقَالَ ٱلَّذِينَ أُوتُوا۟ ٱلْعِلْمَ وَٱلْإِيمَٰنَ لَقَدْ لَبِثْتُمْ فِى كِتَٰبِ ٱللَّهِ إِلَىٰ يَوْمِ ٱلْبَعْثِ فَهَٰذَا يَوْمُ ٱلْبَعْثِ وَلَٰكِنَّكُمْ كُنتُمْ لَا تَعْلَمُونَ 56 فَيَوْمَئِذٍ لَّا يَنفَعُ ٱلَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا۟ مَعْذِرَتُهُمْ وَلَا هُمْ يُسْتَعْتَبُونَ 57
|56. And those to whom knowledge and faith were given will say: The truth is, ye have tarried, by Allah’s decree, until the Day of Resurrection. This is the Day of Resurrection, but ye used not to know.
57. In that Day their excuses will not profit those who did injustice, nor will they be allowed to make amends.
|56. Wa qaalal-laziina ‘uutul-‘ilma wal-‘iimaana laqad labistum fii KitaaBillaahi ‘ilaa Yawmil- ba’-si, fahaazaa Yawmul- ba’-si wa laa-kinnakum kuntum laa ta’-lamuun.
57. Fa-Yawma-‘izil-laa yanfa-‘ullaziina zalamuu ma’-ziratu-him wa laa hum yusta’-ta-buun.
It was commanded: The people, who disobey the Commands of Allaah Almighty and deny Him, will be confounded after looking the horrible scene of the Day of Resurrection and they will say: Alas! How much immediately the world has been over. It seems that we could live there only for one hour. It is commanded: Wise people, who believe in Allaah Almighty, will say to them: You have been frightened and confused from Today’s fearful atmosphere as temporary cheer of the world had ensnared you in carelessness during your worldly life. You drew wrong result in both situations. Listen! In accordance with the Knowledge and the Scripture of Allaah Almighty, You dwelt in the world until the beginning of the Day of Resurrection. This term was sufficient for drawing as a correct conclusion, after thinking and understanding. Today is the Day of Judgment about which you were informed, but you did not care the Sayings of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him).
You did not try to understand the verses of Holy Qur’an carefully and were involved in worldly game and play in such a way that you did nothing save enjoying. If you had thought and understood, you would have prepared yourselves for the Day of Today. You have lost that chance. Now you cannot produce any reasonable excuse of your carelessness and nor there any such time exists that you are given respite to please Allaah Almighty by repentance and His obedience. It could be during your worldly life only. Today is the Day for giving reward or punishment according to your deeds, not for performing good gooks.
