Let not worldly life delude you
Chapter “LUQMAAN”- (LUQMAN) – 31
‘A-‘uu-zu Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast)
(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)
يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلنَّاسُ ٱتَّقُوا۟ رَبَّكُمْ وَٱخْشَوْا۟ يَوْمًا لَّا يَجْزِى وَالِدٌ عَن وَلَدِهِۦ وَلَا مَوْلُودٌ هُوَ جَازٍ عَن وَالِدِهِۦ شَيْـًٔا إِنَّ وَعْدَ ٱللَّهِ حَقٌّ فَلَا تَغُرَّنَّكُمُ ٱلْحَيَوٰةُ ٱلدُّنْيَا وَلَا يَغُرَّنَّكُم بِٱللَّهِ ٱلْغَرُورُ 33
|33. O mankind! Keep your duty to your Lord and fear a Day when the parent will not be able to avail the child in aught, nor the child to avail the parent. Lo! Allah’s Promise is the very truth; so let not the life of the world beguile you, nor let the deceiver beguile you, in regard to Allah.||33. Yaaa-‘ayyuhan-naasut-taquu Rabbakum wakhshaw Yawmal-laa yajzii waalidun ‘anw-waladihii wa laa mawluudun huwa jaazin ‘anw-waalidihii shay-‘aa. ‘Inna Wa’-dAllaahi haqqun falaa tagur-ranna-kumul-hayaatud-dunyaa. Wa laa yagurran-nakum- Billaahil-Garuur.|
It was commanded in previous verses: After observing favors and graces of Allaah Almighty spread everywhere, the mankind should know Him and get ready to obey His Commandments. But the conduct of the mankind is very astonishing. He reaps advantages from the graces of Allaah Almighty every time, but forgets Him and welcomes others courteously. However, when any sudden harsh misfortune falls, in which he finds no helper, then he turns his attention fully towards Allaah Almighty and cries unto Him, making his faith pure for Him only. His injustice is it that as soon as his misfortune is removed, he becomes ingrate.
In this verse it is commanded: You should be careful, fear from the displeasure of Allaah Almighty every time and remember it that such dreadful Day is near to come when no father will avail his son, nor will a son avail his father at all.
It is the Promise of Allaah Almighty which cannot be withdrawn, because His Promise is not for the time being, but His Word is the strongest and soundest. Therefore, you should believe in it and should not be entangled in the deception and misunderstanding of the life of this world. You should not fall in the scheming of Satan because he deceives the mankind in the name of Allaah Almighty. For example, he says: You should enjoy your life, Allaah Almighty is Forgiving, Merciful.
Be cautious! Salvation is in fearing from the wrath of Allaah Almighty.
