The True Lord

Chapter Hajj” – (The Pilgrimage) – 22

‘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)

ذَٰلِكَوَمَنْ عَاقَبَ بِمِثْلِ مَا عُوقِبَ بِهِۦ ثُمَّ بُغِىَ عَلَيْهِ لَيَنصُرَنَّهُ ٱللَّهُ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَعَفُوٌّ غَفُورٌ 60

ذَٰلِكَ بِأَنَّ ٱللَّهَ يُولِجُ ٱلَّيْلَ فِى ٱلنَّهَارِ وَيُولِجُ ٱلنَّهَارَ فِى ٱلَّيْلِ وَأَنَّ ٱللَّهَ سَمِيعٌۢ بَصِيرٌ 61

 ذَٰلِكَ بِأَنَّ ٱللَّهَ هُوَ ٱلْحَقُّوَأَنَّ مَا يَدْعُونَ مِن دُونِهِۦ هُوَ ٱلْبَٰطِلُ وَأَنَّ ٱللَّهَ هُوَ ٱلْعَلِىُّ ٱلْكَبِيرُ 62

60.  That (is so). And whoso hath retaliated with the like of that which he was made to suffer and then hath (again) been wronged, Allah will succour him. Lo! Allah verily is Mild, Forgiving.

 

61.  That is because Allah maketh the night to pass into the day and maketh the day to pass into the night, and because Allah is Hearer, Seer.

 

62.  That is because Allah, He is the True, and that whereon they call instead of Him, it is the False, and because Allah, He is the High, the Great.

60.  Zaalik.  Wa  man  ‘aaqaba  bi-misli  maa  ‘uuqiba  bihii  summa  bugiya  ‘alayhi  layansu-rannahUllaah.  ‘InnAllaaha  la-‘Afuw-wun  Gafuur.

 

61.  Zaalika  bi-‘annAllaaha  yuulijul-layla  fin-nahaari  wa  yuulijun-nahaara  fil-layli  wa  ‘annAllaaha  Samii-‘um-  Basiir.

 

62.  Zaalika  bi-‘annAllaaha  Hu-wal-Haqqu  wa  ‘anna  maa  yad-‘uuna  min  duuniHii  huwal-Baatilu  wa  ‘annAllaaha  Huwal- ‘Aliyyul-  Kabiir.

 

Commentary

 

It was described that retaliation of belief and good works is a peaceful and comfortable life in the Gardens, but retaliation of disbelief is the Doom of the Hell, and if along with it; any individual has oppressed others also, then such people will be suffering from the destruction in this world too.

 

After that, it is commanded: Behold this Rule of the world! The person, who has been oppressed, is permitted to take revenge equally from the oppressor according to his oppression. Certainly Allaah Almighty will help the weak; if even again the oppressor teases.

 

It is found from this discussion that if any disbeliever also does not oppress or tyrannize any other, he can live fairly in the world. However in the Hereafter, he will be involved in difficulties due to punishment of his disbelief. Allaah Almighty verily is Mild, Forgiving.

 

But a Rule of supporting the oppressed people has been fixed by Him. Universe and Time are under His Control. He Sees, Hears and only He is A True God and Lord. Save Him, people’s all self-fabricated gods are the False. He is the Highest, the Greatest. None is greater than Him.
