Guidance in Verses of Quran and Sayings of Messenger

Surah Younus (Jonah) (peace be upon him)


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful


God Almighty be praised that lessons from Surah (Chapter) Younus (Jonah – peace be upon him) were completed on previous lesson. It was described in the Chapter that Holy Qur’aan is a strong and firm Book in all respect. Neither Its words can be changed and nor any other book can be revealed for canceling its Commandments. Whatever exists in it; is 100% right and correct.


Then; it was commanded: what is surprising in it if Allah Almighty has appointed a Man from them for the guidance of all human beings? Coming of the Messenger (peace be upon Him) is necessary because there are many people in the world who mislead others and it is very difficult to find the Straight Path without Guidance.


By sending His Messengers (peace be upon Them), Allah Almighty explained about the Straight Path and He commanded to His last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him): Cause to hear the good news to the good people that they are eminent in the Court of Allah Almighty, and frighten the evildoers that their end is not good. They should abstain from wicked deeds and choose to do good deeds. If they will do so then they will gain their end.


After that, it was caused to understand that this entire world and whatsoever exists in it, has been created by Allah Almighty with His Divine Power. Think carefully on its wonderful arrangement and curiosities, and know the Creator (Allah Almighty) from them. You have been populated here temporarily; and your actual life will start after death. Only those people will find rest and comfort of that life; who will obey the commands of Allah Almighty after knowing Him in this life.


In the entire Chapter, it has been urged that you should know Allah Almighty and worship Him only; otherwise you would have to repent after death. There, you will be asked only about your belief. If you would have believed in Allah Almighty during worldly life; and would not have ascribed plurality to Him, and you obeyed His commands, then you will get freedom from His anger, otherwise you will be punished very severely.


Contrary to it, if you are desirous to guess about comfort and pleasure of those who believed in Allah Almighty in the world and followed His Revelations, conjecture from it that they will be provided well-built houses, decorated with green trees loaded with fruits underneath which; the rivers flow. Their all wishes will be fulfilled immediately.


Such matters have been manifested by narrating the circumstances of ancient nations and it has been explained that Peace of the Hereafter is fixed for those who believed and did good works. In the world also, those people will be saved from disasters and misfortunes; who will pass their lives according to the Instructions (Quran) of Allah Almighty and Sayings (Hadith) of His last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him).
