A binding upon all communities

Chapter “The Prophets” – (Suratul – ‘Ambiyaaa’ – 21)

 ‘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.)

فَمَن يَعْمَلْ مِنَ ٱلصَّٰلِحَٰتِ وَهُوَ مُؤْمِنٌ فَلَا كُفْرَانَ لِسَعْيِهِۦ وَإِنَّا لَهُۥ كَٰتِبُونَ 94

وَحَرَٰمٌعَلَىٰ قَرْيَةٍ أَهْلَكْنَٰهَآ أَنَّهُمْ لَا يَرْجِعُونَ 95


94.  Then whoso doeth some good works and is a Believer, there will be no rejection of his effort. And lo! We record (it) for him.


95.  And there is a binding upon any community which We have destroyed; that they shall not return.

94.  Famany-ya’-mal  minas-Saalihaati  wa  huwa  Mu’-minun  falaa  kufraana  li-sa’-yih.  Wa  ‘Innaa  lahuu  Kaatibuun.


95.  Wa  haraamun  ‘alaa  qarya-tin  ‘ahlakNaahaaa  ‘annahum  laa  yarji-‘uun.




Kufraana – (rejection, refusal to accept or grant, let not reap advantage of own effort).


Haraamun – (a binding, obligatory, final decision).


In the previous lesson’s verse, it has been described that the people have broken their religion into fragments due to being involved in their selfishness, lust and ambition, though only one religion has been determined for the entire human beings. And all the Prophets and the Messengers (peace be upon them) were sent for explanation and enforcement of the religion in the world.

And while it has been manifested in its complete form by means of the last Messenger Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) and the last Scripture Holy Qur’an, and no need has been remained to amend, correct or cancel any commandment mentioned in it for future, then lineage of Prophets and Messengers has been stopped. If now, the people will break the religion into fragments by opposing one another, then they will return unto Allaah Almighty along with all mankind and they will be responsible of their deeds.


Allaah Almighty commands in this verse that it is His Established Order for retaliating that the person who would have done any good work and is a Believer, his effort will not be useless. In the same manner, the person who will deserve punishment due to own evil deeds, he will never return unto good works by leaving evil works, and nor will he be returned to this world after death for correcting his deeds with effect from the beginning. This Rule of Reward and Punishment has been fixed for the entire human beings. For actual success, Belief along with good works is compulsory.
