LESSON # 18 HOLY QUR’AAN
BAQARAH – 2
GOOD MANNERS OF SOBERS
Verse – 3 of 286, section -1(FAITH ON INVISIBLE-1)
|Who believe in the unseen
|‘Allaziina yu’-minuuna bil-Gaybi|
‘Allaziina– Those people who.
yu’-minuuna– believe, bring faith. Belief means ‘to admit the truth with tongue, have faith in it with heart and devise action according to it. Who becomes a believer, he comes in peace. It is the Belief, which is reliable in the Divine law of religion.
Gaybi- means the world which is higher than this outward world, information about which can only be achieved through the Prophet (Peace be upon Him). For example:
Nature and virtues of GOD, Angels, Paradise and Hell, the Day of Resurrection, accounts of good manners and the evils (sins), rewards and punishment as per acts etc. Belief in the unseen may not be complete without having faith in the Prophet (Peace be upon Him).
It was told in the previous lesson that Holy Qur’aan is Rule of Guidance for those people who wish to get advantage from it with extremely sincerity and sacred intention, who have ability and excitement to live with care and look after themselves. And they have ambition to pass their lives with chastity and cautiousness.
In this verse first attribute of sobers has been mentioned which will come into them with the guidance of the Holy Qur’aan. And that is the thing that they believe in the unseen, the body of which is higher than the outward senses.
Without belief the heart remains restless and unstable. Because without its existence doubt, hesitation, whim and suspicion make place in the hearts. But a believer does not frighten in the stress and strain, in the painful calamity and examination. But he gets encourage because he believes that he has a great support and strong trust. And he gains from it happiness of his brain, satisfaction of the heart and comfort of his soul. This faith in world of unseen is brain of religion and soul of belief. Without this faith, belief can not be matured.
We have prepared ourselves to get Guidance from the Holy Qur’aan and joined the people who have fear of GOD. Now we should produce good manners in ourselves according to the teachings of Holy Qur’aan. We should believe and act on all the facts without hesitation which have been ordered through Holy Qur’aan, which have come to us through the last Messenger (Peace be upon Him).
O Allah! Give us power, resources and strength for it.
