Allah is the Strong, the Mighty
Surah Huud (Hud) – 11
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
فَلَمَّا جَآءَ أَمْرُنَا نَجَّيْنَا صَٰلِحًا وَٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟مَعَهُۥ بِرَحْمَةٍ مِّنَّا وَمِنْ خِزْىِ يَوْمِئِذٍ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ هُوَ ٱلْقَوِىُّ ٱلْعَزِيزُ (66
|66. So when Our Commandment came to pass, We saved Salih, and those who believed with him, by a Mercy from Us, from the ignominy of that Day. Lo! Thy Lord! He is the Strong, the Mighty.||66. Falammaa jaaa-‘a ‘Amru-Naa najjay-Naa Saa-lihanw-wallaziina ‘aamanuu ma-‘ahuu bi-Rahmatim-minNaa wa min khiz-yi Yawmi-‘iz. ‘Inna Rabbaka Huwal-Qawiyyul—‘Aziiz.|
Pleasure of the world is only apparent happiness, but it contains much intoxication, in the fancy of which, mankind becomes careless from his original condition. The same state of intoxication is of the liquor, which makes the mankind; not only careless from any misfortune; but charms in imaginary gladness. Then, for keeping up this ideal pleasure, he drinks again and again, so that the intoxication should not lessen and the fascination should be preserved in thought.
In the same way, lovers of worldly pleasure try to maintain it, so that they may forget the actual matters always in its intoxication, which desire to guide the human being towards the Right Path. The Messengers of Allah Almighty (peace be upon them) want to shake off the mankind from such intoxication, so that their sense may begin to work positively. The human beings should not give any importance to the pleasantness of this life because it is just like a bubble of water. The life should appear before him in its original color, so that he may observe that it is a field; full of thorns and shrubs. He would have to cross it carefully by saving his clothes, so that he may reach the Straight Path of God’s Cognizance, then move on it during life time and try to acquire pleasure of Allah Almighty wholeheartedly.
The tribe of Thamud did not seek this Path; although Prophet Salih (peace be upon him) caused to know them. Ultimately, Allah Almighty sends His Commandment to anyone of the worldly forces; which He has produced: Destroy this rebellious nation. His Commandment is obeyed immediately and the obstinate people are slain, the death of disgrace. Allah Almighty saves Prophet Salih (peace be upon him) along with his companions who believed, from the ignominy, by a mercy from Him. All forces and powers of the world are proved as a spider’s web when Power of Allah Almighty appears.
