A short note on this Chapter
Chapter “SAJDAH” – (THE PROSTRATION) – 32
‘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)
According to setting of Holy Qur’an, this is thirty second Chapter, which was revealed during the middle times of stay at Makkah. There are three Sections in this Chapter. At first, attention has been drawn towards this matter that surely Holy Qur’an is a Scripture sent down by Allaah Almighty, Who brings up the entire living beings of all the worlds and Who is Protecting Friend of all of them. There is no doubt in it.
Holy Qur’an’s way of speaking has been describing clearly that the Creator of this world has sent it down for the guidance of His entire prudent and adult creature. It addresses; not only any particular folk or class; but those creatures who keep perception of understanding and responsibility into themselves.
Do these ignorant people of Makkah say about this dignified Scripture that it has been invented by the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) himself? They are aware of Arabic language, if even then they say like this, then there is no other reason save it that they are stubborn and selfish. Give up these things! This Holy Book really explains the truth and has been sent as a warning for them; towards whom no Prophet was sent in the past, so that it may make them Spiritual Guides for the people of the entire world.
It commands: Know your Lord (Allaah Almighty) Who Alone created the heavens, the earth and all creatures between them, and established an Order of them. You have no Companion or Supporter save Him. Believe in Him and follow His Commandments! You have to live in this world for some days, then the death will seize all of you. After that, you will be brought back to life again, your deeds will be reckoned and you will be dealt with reward or punishment according to your worldly deeds. On that Day, those who disobey Allaah Almighty, will grieve and request to send them back again in this world, but their request will be rejected, because they were made to understand carefully by means of the Prophets (peace be upon them) and the Scriptures that “your abode would be Hell if you did not believe. We shall forget you Today (the Day of Judgment) as you forgot Us in the world. Nothing is for you Today but the Doom”.
Behold! Listen carefully! Believers are those who give up haughtiness after hearing the verses of Holy Qur’an and bow down immediately before Allaah Almighty. They get up during night hours, implore earnestly and humbly before Him. As they fear Him, they hope for His forgiveness too.
Behold! Little disasters are sent in the world for wakening the mankind. They would have to suffer from very severe torment on the Day of Resurrection if they did not waken. Remember it that the Day of Resurrection is Inevitable and entire disputes will be settled on that Day.
