The Disobedient have no protecting friend

Surah Ra-‘d (The Thunder) – 13

‘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.)

وَكَذَٰلِكَ أَنزَلْنَٰهُ حُكْمًا عَرَبِيًّا وَلَئِنِ ٱتَّبَعْتَ أَهْوَآءَهُم بَعْدَمَا جَآءَكَ مِنَ ٱلْعِلْمِ مَا لَكَ مِنَ ٱللَّهِ مِن وَلِىٍّ وَلَا وَاقٍ 37

37.  And this have We revealed it, A Decisive Utterance in Arabic; and if thou shouldst follow their desires after that which hath come unto thee of knowledge, then truly wouldst thou have from Allah no protecting friend nor defender.            37.  Wa  kazaa-lika  ‘anzal-Naahu  Hukman  ‘Ara-biyyaa.  Wa  la-‘initta-ba’-ta  ‘ahwaaa-‘ahum  ba’-da  maa  jaaa-‘aka  minal-‘ilmi,  maa  laka  minAllaahi  minwwa-liyyinw-wa  laa  waaq.


(Section 5)       




In the verse earlier before this; it was commanded that the people are less in numbers who are seekers of the Truth and the Just. Every individual sees own interest. Say to them: I have neither any interest in advantage of someone and nor I am desirous to harm any person. I invite every individual unto Allah Almighty Who is One without any partner. And I serve Him only.


It is commanded in this verse: O Our Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him)! It is the Decision of Holy Qur’aan which has been caused to hear you. For passing such orders, Holy Qur’aan has been revealed unto you in Arabic language, and by means of you, unto the entire human beings of the world. Purpose of sending down it in Arabic language is that your and your nation’s language is Arabic. You are true and right because you say without partiality and favor of any one. It is incumbent on you, your nation and those who are seekers of the truth; to say unhesitatingly that which Truth has been sent down towards all of you by means of this Holy Qur’aan. Lacking in it will be cause of destruction. Even if you {O Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him)!} also will think about their wishes, begin to hide the Truth by showing them your favor, then neither any person can save you and nor set you free from the wrath of Allah Almighty.


Known from it is that God Almighty helps only such people who obey His commandment and they do not care own as well as others’ wishes.
