Reply to the wrongdoers

Quran Chapter 23: 107 to 109 (Pt-18, Stg-4) (L-2188) درس قرآن

Reply to the wrongdoers

Chapter Mu’-minuun” – (The Believers) – 23

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-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)

رَبَّنَآ أَخْرِجْنَا مِنْهَا فَإِنْ عُدْنَا فَإِنَّا ظَٰلِمُونَ 107  قَالَٱخْسَـُٔوا۟ فِيهَا وَلَا تُكَلِّمُونِ 108  إِنَّهُۥ كَانَ فَرِيقٌ مِّنْ عِبَادِى يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَآ ءَامَنَّا فَٱغْفِرْ لَنَا وَٱرْحَمْنَا وَأَنتَ خَيْرُ ٱلرَّٰحِمِينَ 109

 

107.  Our Lord! Oh, bring us forth from hence! If we return (to evil) then indeed we shall be wrongdoers.

 

108.  He saith: Begone therein, and speak not unto Me.

 

109.  Lo! There was a party of My slaves who said: Our Lord! We believe, therefore forgive us and have mercy on us for Thou art Best of all who show mercy.

107.  Rabbanaaa  ‘akhrijnaa  minhaa  fa-‘in  ‘udnaa  fa-‘innaa  zaalmuun.

 

108.  Qaalakh-sa-‘uu  fiihaa  waa  laa  tukallimuuN.

 

109.  ‘Innahuu  kaana  fariiqum-min  ‘ibaaDii  yaquuluunaa  “Rabbanaaa  ‘aamannaa  fagfir-lanaa  warhamnaa  wa  ‘anTa  Khayrur-raahimiin”.

 

Commentary

 

‘Akh-sa-‘uu – (Begone!, Get away!), it is a word of command from the word khas-‘un, which means “to go away”. The word ‘ikhsaa-‘un is used for reproving a dog.

 

Hellish people will grieve badly, scream and cry out in the Hell due to pain and affliction. They will request: Our Lord! We acted fruitlessly in the world and did not obey Your Command. Our Lord! Send us back once again into the world from the Hell. We assure You that we shall do good works and obey Your every Command with head and heart after returning from here. If we commit obstinacy again as we did earlier, then we shall deserve absolutely to be called oppressor, wrongdoer and tyrant etc. Then, punish us as You wish!

 

Allaah Almighty will answer them: Get away and live in the Hell silently. Don’t speak unto Me! You crossed the line in insurrection during your worldly life. You used to see that a party of My slaves prays in My Court and says: Our Lord! We believe. Therefore forgive our errors and sins, and have mercy on us, for You are Best of all who show mercy.

تَلْفَحُ وُجُوهَهُمُٱلنَّارُ وَهُمْ فِيهَا كَٰلِحُونَ 104  أَلَمْ تَكُنْ ءَايَٰتِى تُتْلَىٰ عَلَيْكُمْ فَكُنتُم بِهَا تُكَذِّبُونَ 105  قَالُوا۟ رَبَّنَا غَلَبَتْ عَلَيْنَا شِقْوَتُنَا وَكُنَّا قَوْمًا ضَآلِّينَ 106

104.  The fire burneth their faces, and they are glum therein.

 

105.  (It will be said): Were not My Revelations recited unto you, and then ye used to deny them?

 

106.  They will say: Our Lord! Our evil fortune overwhelmed us, and we were erring folk.

105.  ‘Alam  takun  ‘AayaaTii  tutlaa  ‘alaykum  fakuntum-  bihaa  tukazzibuun.

 

106.  Qaaluu  Rabbanaa  galabat  ‘alaynaa  shiqwatunaa  wa  kunnaa  qawman  zaaalliin.

 

Commentary

 

Talfahu – (will burn), this word is from laf-hun, which means “to burn”.

 

Kaali-huuna – (they are glum), it is plural of kaalihun, which has been derived from kalaha. Kuluuhun means “being disfigured of the face, expanding of lips, shrinking of the skin etc.”

 

Disbelievers of Allaah Almighty will enter into the Hell, where the Fire will burn them. Their bodies will swell, countenance of their faces will be changed, lips will swell and appearance will be disfigured. They will complain and cry out in the Court of Allaah Almighty due to pain and suffering. They will be asked: Were not verses of Holy Qur’an recited unto you? Verily, those used to recite before you every time, but you used to say after hearing them carelessly: It is not the Word of Allaah Almighty, but fabricated by yourselves and named falsely that it is sent by Him. We don’t need to pay attention unto it.

 

In those Revelations, you were frightened from the Hell and the condition of the Doom of this place was manifested entirely. Describe now! Why did you consider them a lie? They will cry out: Our Lord! Our evil fortune overwhelmed us. We had been entangled in our sensual wishes as much that we could not come out from them. We have understood now thoroughly that the path which we chose; was wrong from beginning to end and we had gone astray.

Commentary

 

Our Lord! Forgive us! How much it has become difficult for the mankind to understand today that whatever he has been doing in this world; is being recorded continuously. After death they will be given life again, and rough accounts of their deeds will be produced before them. Then their deeds will be weighed. That person will be successful whose scales will be heavy and he will escape from all perplexities. He will gain perpetual pleasure. Grief and sadness will not touch him. He will get fruit of that which he had sown in this world.

 

Contrary to above, scales of whose will be light and weightless, evil will come upon him. He will come to know it clearly that he acted during worldly life totally fruitlessly, did great businesses, collected abundant wealth and property, constructed very high buildings, invented heavy machines, became very famous, the people saluted whence passed and they spoke “he is really a great and respectable person. All people consider that he is a powerful person. His talk is very weighty. He has many bungalows and motor cars et.”

 

On the Day of Resurrection, such kind of people will come to know that the entire worldly pomp and show was weightless. They would have to abide in the Hell compulsorily for ever.

Quran Chapter 23: 100b & 101 (Pt-18, Stg-4) (L-2185) درس قرآن

101.  Fa-‘izaa  nufikha  fis-Suuri  falaaa  ‘ansaaba  baynahum  Yawma-‘izinw-wa  laa  yatasaaa-‘aluun.

 

Commentary

 

Barzakhun – (Barrier, the Interval between the death and resurrection, separation, a screen). Barzakh is the thing which comes between two things and separates them from each other. Here it aims “that world which begins after the life of this world, and which will be finished when the life of the Day of Resurrection will be started”. That is called “the world of Grave” also.

 

It is commanded: When the death reached, then question of coming back again in this world is only such thing; which comes out by the tongue of the person who is going to die, due to access of grief and regret (repentance). Its result is nothing but these are only useless words. After death these people will reach another world, which is an interval and a screen between the death and Resurrection.

 

This world came to an end for that person who died and ‘Aalam Barzakh (the world of the Interval between the death and resurrection) began, in which some glitter of the Day of Resurrection will be shown. After that, when the Trumpet will be blown, then ‘Aalam Barzakh will be finished and the Day of Resurrection will be commenced, which will be entirely different from this world. All relationships of this world will be finished. Entire human beings will be gathered in a field. No one will think concerning any other. That time will be of selfishness. All people will be at one place but none will ask of any other. The son will see his father. Husband will meet his wife. But neither children will talk with their parents and nor any relative will talk with any other relative. Every individual will be involved in thinking in astonished condition about oneself silently.

Mankind have to be settled with the mischievous

Quran Chapter 23: 97 to 100a (Pt-18, Stg-4) (L-2184) درس قرآن

Mankind have to be settled with the mischievous

Chapter Mu’-minuun” – (The Believers) – 23

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-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)

وَقُل رَّبِّ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ هَمَزَٰتِ ٱلشَّيَٰطِينِ 97  وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ رَبِّ أَنيَحْضُرُونِ 98  حَتَّىٰٓ إِذَا جَآءَ أَحَدَهُمُ ٱلْمَوْتُ قَالَ رَبِّ ٱرْجِعُونِ 99  لَعَلِّىٓ أَعْمَلُ صَٰلِحًا فِيمَا تَرَكْتُ كَلَّآ إِنَّهَا كَلِمَةٌ هُوَ قَآئِلُهَا وَمِن وَرَآئِهِم بَرْزَخٌ إِلَىٰ يَوْمِ يُبْعَثُونَ 100

 

97.  And say: My Lord! I seek refuge in Thee from suggestions of the evil ones –

 

98.  And I seek refuge in Thee, my Lord, lest they be present with me.

 

99.  Until, when death cometh unto one of them, he saith: My Lord! Send me back –

 

100a.  That I may do right in that which I have left behind!

97.  Wa  qur-Rabbi  ‘a-‘uuzu  biKa  min  hamazaatish-shayaa-tiini.

 

98.  Wa  ‘a-‘uuzu  biKa  Rabbi  ‘any-yahzuruun.

 

99.  Hattaaa  ‘izaa  jaaa-‘a  ‘aha-dahumul-mawtu  qaala  Rabbir-ji-‘uun.

 

100a.  La-‘alliii  ‘a’-malu  saalihan-  fiimaa  taraktu  kallaa.

 

Commentary

 

Hamazaati – (to stab with any pointed thing, strictures, vexing), this word is plural of hamazatun. Here the aim from hamazaatish-shayaa-tiini is “Demonic Temptations”.

 

Yahzuruuna and ‘ir-ji-‘uuna – actually these words are yahzuruunii (lest they come near me) and ‘ir-ji-‘uunii. Due to stopping, the last “ii” has been removed. ‘Irji-‘uu means “Send me back”. For respect, it has been used in plural form.

 

There is not any one evil for mankind in the world. On one side he has to be settled with mischievous human beings themselves and there is a need of seeking refuge in Allaah Almighty from their wicked deeds. But because those are apparently visible enemies, so by thumping and also slapping etc. with them; they can be repelled. But besides them, there are such enemies too who are not visible and they attack secretly. In addition, they excite too for villainy to the mischievous human beings. Such are Devils who are from the kind of demons. You should seek refuge from them in these words: My Lord! Save me from their suggestions and with Your kindness, let them not come near me.

 

Then it is commanded: Mischievous people will not refrain from their mischief. However, when any of them will be at death’s door and will see the signs of wrath, then he will repent and make a request as: Alas! I destroyed my life and did not think about the Day of Resurrection. O my Lord! Send me back again in the world which I have left. I am fully hopeful that after returning; I shall do sufficient good works.

 

But this longing will not be fulfilled because there is no chance of coming back again in this world for doing right.

Commentary

 

It was mentioned earlier that they went beyond bounds in the arrogance of Allaah Almighty. Someone says: We are all in all and can do whatever we desire. No one can prevent us. Allaah, the life after death, reward and punishment of good and evil deeds – these all are self-made matters. Goodness and badness of deeds are nothing. That is good which we say and that is bad which we say. None can interfere in our matters.

 

It is the consequence of such thought and such kind of behavior that a severe disaster is near to come upon them in the world.

Therefore, the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) and his followers have been instructed in this verse that every individual should seek protection from the Wrath of Allaah Almighty and say in these words: My Lord! Do not include me in the wrath along with these disobedient people if Your wrath is coming upon them during my life and keep me saved from the entire misfortunes; by Your mercy.

 

O  Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him)! We have full Power in this matter that We can send the same wrath upon them forthwith before you from which they are being frightened, but presently they are being given respite, so that who of them is desirous to choose the right path, may choose. Therefore you should do with them good against bad. We are Best Aware of that which they have been doing and whatever they have been saying. If they did not refrain then very soon they will be punished very severely. You should turn towards your Lord and pray in these words: Our Lord! Save us from Your Wrath.

Commentary

 

Holy Qur’an describes to the disbelievers of Allaah Almighty that they should know Allaah Almighty by using their sense correctly. This entire have neither been created automatically and nor its wonderful system has been running at its own. Common sense of the mankind is sufficient to understand.

 

After that, It guides to the believers of Allaah Almighty that they should know Him as it is required to be known. His Knowledge has surrounded all things. His Power is Masterly over the entire universe. He Alone can create whatsoever He desires and He Alone can put in order the management of the entire creatures in perfection. Neither He needs descendants and nor there is any partner of Him in creating the world and its arrangement.

 

In these verses, the same has been caused to understand that in addition to other wrong matters, it is included also that Allaah Almighty has children. And it is also wrong that there is someone else partner too of Him who participates in creating the world and its arrangements. If you believe in Allaah Almighty, you should believe that He has no child and nor is any partner along with Him in the arrangement of the world. If there were any more partners along with Allaah Almighty in the creation of the world and its dominion, certainly they would have fought one to another mutually any time, and every partner of them would have been separated along with his creature. And by collecting own strength he would have assaulted upon the other and the entire universe would have been disorganized. You should repent from such matters. Allaah Almighty is Pure from descendants and partners. Neither any other has the Power as of Him and nor knowledge. He knows every Invisible and the Visible. And He is Exalted over all that you ascribe as partners unto Him.

Commentary

 

It is commanded: Then ask from them also that in Whose hand is the dominion over all things and by Whose order everything has been running according to own manner. He (Allaah Almighty) can protect the person to whom He desire. None can oppress that person to whom He gives shelter. None can save the individual to whom He determine as a wrongdoer. Explain if you know this matter! In its reply they will also not be able to say except it that the commandment of only Allaah Almighty is in order upon everything. Nothing can fall back a little from that path which Allaah Almighty has fixed for any particular thing.

 

While there is no answer of this question save it then you should say to them: How have you been dull of understanding that after knowing so much you have been talking stupidly that “there can be no life after death, and reckoning of accounts of personal deeds on the Day of Resurrection is entirely self-fabricated”? While everything is under the command of Allaah Almighty and all things are obedient of Him, then how, giving life again after death; punishing and giving reward on wicked and good deeds, has gone out of His Power? You should repent! These entire are useless matters. The actual thing is that which Message We have sent unto them by means of Our Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), that is hundred per cent correct. And whatsoever they have been saying, that is against the situation. And that is entirely a lie which ever they have been saying.

Commentary

 

It has been caused to understand in these verses in a fine way that you praise Allaah Almighty but have doubt in the life after death. It is a sign of this matter that you did not know Allaah Almighty carefully and did not reflect in the portents of His Omnipotence. These portents have been spreading everywhere.

 

It is commanded: If you know then tell: Unto Whom belongs this earth and Who is Lord of it and those all who live on it? It is obvious that they will not be able to answer save it that these entire things belong to Allaah Almighty.

 

O Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him): Say to them after that! While you know these all matters then can you not understand that when He is Lord of the entire earth and all of them who live on it, then He can reproduce you from its ingredients also as He produced you first time. Found from it is that you did not use your sense properly and did not draw as a correct conclusion from the known things.

 

Ask from them after it: Who is Lord of the seven heavens, and Lord of the Tremendous Throne? They will not have any reply save it too that Absolute Emperor is Allaah Almighty only. Then you should say to them: it is a surprising thing that you do not fear from disobeying the Greatest and Strongest Sovereign. You are so much great arrogant that you slight from His commandments. If He punish you due to your arrogance and disobedience, then in whom will you seek shelter, whereas everything is humble before Him?

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

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

بَلْ قَالُوا۟ مِثْلَ مَا قَالَ ٱلْأَوَّلُونَ 81  قَالُوٓا۟ أَءِذَا مِتْنَا وَكُنَّا تُرَابًا وَعِظَٰمًا أَءِنَّا لَمَبْعُوثُونَ 82  لَقَدْ وُعِدْنَا نَحْنُ وَءَابَآؤُنَا هَٰذَا مِن قَبْلُ إِنْ هَٰذَآ إِلَّآ أَسَٰطِيرُ ٱلْأَوَّلِينَ 83

 

81.  Nay, but they say the like of that which said the men of old.

 

82.  They say: When we are dead and have become (mere) dust and bones, shall we then, forsooth, be raised again?

Commentary

 

‘Asaa-tiiru – (fables), this word is plural of ‘ustuuratun, which has been derived from satara. Satar means “to draw a line”. ‘Ustuuratun means “the story which has been being told since long”. Mankind is a slave to old customs and rites and desires to behave as the ancient people had already been conducting. He repeats often the same which old people used to do. There are very less people who use their sense.

 

Holy Qur’an says: you should not consider that your forefathers were right in all matters. Many matters from those are wrong or those are changed in process of time from right to wrong.

 

It is commanded: these people who have been denying concerning the life of the mankind after death, is not any new thing. Those people who passed away before them used to say also the same. When the Prophets (peace be upon them) caused to understand them that after causing death to the human beings Allaah Almighty will give them life again, then they began to say: we are unable to understand that when a person is died, his flesh is dissolved and wasted, only skeleton of bones is remainder, which is only for some more days and it will also be finished, then how the mankind will come to life again and how will he get up. Such matters are being described to us, which are not reasonable (Let us flee to God). The same were told to our ancestors also before us. These were fabricated by some ancient people and are baseless. Now the same are being repeated again and again. If these fables were true; then ever a heap of dust would have become a living mankind and stand before us.
