Inveigling the Muslims

Chapter ’Ankabuut”- (The Spider) – 29

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

 (I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

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

It was commanded in the previous verses that the people who believed in Allaah Almighty, would be tested that whether they were true in their claim of Belief or against it. If one is troubled by the Disbelievers in executing the Commands of Allaah Almighty, he should endure, because anyhow, this trouble would certainly be less than that torment which has been fixed for disobedience of Allaah Almighty. It is not dignity of Believers that they should run away due to fear of worldly difficulties, because in such condition, either they will dwell in the world as a Disbeliever or they would have to live as an Idolater or a Hypocrite. All these three forms are consequently foundation of mankind’s destruction. The salvation of the mankind is only in acceptance of proper Oneness of God (Allaah Almighty). It is the point from which Satan desires to push him back at any cost. The Unity is such compulsory thing that if even most respectable guardians like parents say that you should fall back from it, then you should not obey them in this matter. None can snatch the graciousness of Belief from those who recite wholeheartedly “The Word of Unity” [Laa ‘ilaaha ‘illAllaahu, Muhammadur-RasuulUllaah {None is worthy of worship but Allaah, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) is Messenger of Allaah}].

 

Infidels of Makkah were desirous that the Muslims should leave their Religion. They used to frighten, threaten, beat, trouble and along with it inveigle them. The Muslims were informed about their tricks and it was said: Be careful! By being embarrassed from their causing trouble or being taken in their flatteries; you should never be driven back from the Path of Belief, otherwise you also will be entangled in the Doom of Allaah Almighty like them. Alas! This misfortune has not given over the Muslims till today. Idolaters of Makkah used to say verbally to the Muslims: In which calamity you have been entangled by leaving worldly blessings? What a sin and what a punishment? This world is everything. You should be addicted to pleasure and do as you wish fearlessly. We shall bear punishment on behalf of you if you are chosen for torment.

 

But the effort of enticing the Muslims to draw them back from their Religion, which was commenced after that, was more dangerous than the earlier. They gave up saying by their tongues that nothing was in the Religion Islam. But they arranged to cheapen the prices of worldly luxurious things so much that life of abstinence became more difficult day by day to pass.

 

At last, most of the Muslims fell into their scheming. Wealth, woman and land brought them into their grasp. These enemies, who were more dangerous than the old, succeeded in repelling them from their Right Path. Everyone can understand easily after looking the present condition of the Muslims that followers of the Idolaters of Makkah finished them.
