Most of the people know not the Truth

Chapter “The Prophets” – (Suratul‘Ambiyaaa’ – 21)

 ‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-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.)

  أَمِٱتَّخَذُوا۟ مِن دُونِهِۦٓ ءَالِهَةً قُلْ هَاتُوا۟ بُرْهَٰنَكُمْ هَٰذَا ذِكْرُ مَن مَّعِىَ وَذِكْرُ مَن قَبْلِى بَلْ أَكْثَرُهُمْ لَايَعْلَمُونَ ٱلْحَقَّ فَهُم مُّعْرِضُونَ 24

 

24.  Or have they chosen other gods beside Him? Say: Bring your proof (of their godhead). This is the Reminder of those with me and those before me, but most of them know not the Truth and so they are averse. 24.  ‘Amittakhazuu  min-  duuniHii  ‘aalihah. Qul  haatuu  bur-haanakum.  Haazaa  Zikru  mam-ma-‘iya  wa  Zikru  man  qablii.  Bal  ‘aksaruhum  laa  ya’-lamuunal-Haqqa  fahum-mu’-rizuun.

 

    Commentary

 

It was commanded previously that there is none equal of Allaah Almighty. Therefore, only He is Alone Worshipped.

 

In this verse it is commanded: Some people have ascribed little gods along with Him, but not equal of Him, because they consider that He cannot manage without helpers. Therefore He is needy of supporters. It is demanded from them: Produce any such strong proof in this matter if you have! Ideas and conjectures including blind imitation of forefathers are not useful. It is the decision of the wise people of the present times and the ancient that only Allaah Almighty is in Whose possession is the Throne of the Emperor of the Worlds and Who is Owner of It. Whatsoever happens, that happens by only His Command and Power.

 

Neither He needs advice from any other for Commandment and nor He is necessitous of any other’s help in any matter. The people conceive that Allaah Almighty, Who is The Supreme in Power and The Omnipotent, is just like the kings of the world. It is their plain error. What is competition among the kings of the world and The Omnipotent? They have been leading into error by reason of it that they do not try to seek the Truth and the Right. So their sense does not reach the fundamental reality. And they turn away from the Commandments of Holy Qur’an and other Heavenly Scriptures. And they have been entangled in own conjectures.
