Consequence of doing wrong

Chapter ’Ankabuut”- (The Spider) – 29

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahiminash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.

 (I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)


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


وَلَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا نُوحًا إِلَىٰ قَوْمِهِۦ فَلَبِثَ فِيهِمْ أَلْفَ سَنَةٍ إِلَّا خَمْسِينَ عَامًا فَأَخَذَهُمُ ٱلطُّوفَانُ وَهُمْ ظَٰلِمُونَ 14  فَأَنجَيْنَٰهُ وَأَصْحَٰبَ ٱلسَّفِينَةِ وَجَعَلْنَٰهَآ ءَايَةً لِّلْعَٰلَمِينَ 15

14.  And verily We sent Noah (as Our Messenger) unto his folk, and he continued with them for a thousand years save fifty years; and the flood engulfed them, for they were wrongdoers.


15.  So We rescued him and those with him in the ship, and made of it a Portent for the peoples.

14.  Wa  laqad  ‘arsalNaa  Nuuhan  ‘ilaa  qawmihii  falabisa  fiihim  ‘alfa  sanatin  ‘illaa  khamsiina  ‘aamaa.  Fa-‘akhaza-humut-Tuufaanu  wa  hum  zaalimuun.


15.  Fa-‘anjayNaahu  wa  ‘As-haabas-Safiinati  wa  ja-‘alNaahaaa  ‘Aayatal-lil-‘Aalamiin. 


It was described earlier that wrongdoers trouble them who believe and do good works. But the aim from it is to test the Believers, so that they may deserve honors and favors of Allaah Almighty by remaining steadfast. For satisfaction of the Muslims, at first it was described in short that the Believers were tested in the past too like you. But at last, those got success who endured difficulties with patience in the Path of Allaah Almighty. And those, who troubled them, were ruined.


Now this statement has been manifested by describing the circumstances of some ancient nations and their Prophets (peace be upon them). Allaah Almighty commands: We appointed Noah as Our Messenger (peace be upon him) and sent him to his people for causing to understand them that they should live as the slaves of Allaah Almighty being separate from haughtiness and pride, give up hating the poor, and strong people should refrain from molesting the weak.


Noah (peace be upon him) caused to understand them for nine hundred and fifty years. But none of them listened to him save some distressed people. All of them resisted and did not understand that they were tyrannizing their own souls. At last a vigorous storm of water reached which seized them.


Noah (peace be upon him) and his companions went on board a ship and were saved from the flood. Other all people were drowned and became a warning story in the history of the world for future generations.
