Result of choosing the way of evil

Suratun-Nahl – (The Bee) – 16

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast)

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

  وَلَقَدْ بَعَثْنَا فِى كُلِّ أُمَّةٍرَّسُولًا أَنِ ٱعْبُدُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَٱجْتَنِبُوا۟ ٱلطَّٰغُوتَ فَمِنْهُم مَّنْ هَدَى ٱللَّهُ وَمِنْهُم مَّنْ حَقَّتْ عَلَيْهِ ٱلضَّلَٰلَةُ فَسِيرُوا۟ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ فَٱنظُرُوا۟ كَيْفَ كَانَ عَٰقِبَةُٱلْمُكَذِّبِينَ 36

إِن تَحْرِصْ عَلَىٰ هُدَىٰهُمْ فَإِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَا يَهْدِى مَن يُضِلُّ وَمَا لَهُم مِّن نَّٰصِرِينَ 37


36b.  So travel in the land and see the nature of the consequence for the deniers.


37.  Even if thou (O Muhammad) desirest their right guidance, still Allah assuredly will not guide him whom He misleadeth and such have no helpers.

36b.  Fasiiruu  fil-‘arzi  Fanzuruu  kayfa  kaana  ‘aaqibatul-mukazzibiin.


37.  ‘In-  tahris-  ‘alaa  hudaahum  fa-‘innAllaaha  laa  yahdii  many-yuzillu  wa  maa  lahum-min-naasi-riin.




When the mankind adopts the way of evil, then he considers that evil is a good thing. At first, Satan excites his passions and his sense opposes the passions. Among the both; conflict arises. If the sense overcame upon the passions, then a person becomes a mankind, and if the passions overcame upon the sense, then a person becomes an animal; even any worse thing than the animal.


Allah Almighty commands: Just be conscious, travel in the world and see! Which fruit did the ancient people find after opposing the Prophets (peace be upon them)? Meditate in it. It is commanded to the Messenger, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him): You desire very much that the people who are victims of passions and enemies of the sense, they should leave wicked deeds and do good works. But You should not be sorrowful if they do not hear Your Sayings. You have performed Your duty. Satan has misled them. And it has been decided in the Court of Allah Almighty: That person will be deprived of the guidance who will be entangled in the trap of Satan. These people have become slaves of their wishes because Satan has seduced them and Allah Almighty has distracted them from the Straight Path. Now there is no one who may save them from the punishment of this depravity.
