Warning for the entire mankind

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.)

 

   وَنَضَعُ ٱلْمَوَٰزِينَ ٱلْقِسْطَ لِيَوْمِ ٱلْقِيَٰمَةِ فَلَاتُظْلَمُ نَفْسٌ شَيْـًٔا وَإِن كَانَ مِثْقَالَ حَبَّةٍ مِّنْ خَرْدَلٍ أَتَيْنَا بِهَا وَكَفَىٰ بِنَا حَٰسِبِينَ 47

 

47.  And We will set a just balance on the Day of Resurrection so that no soul is wronged in aught. And though it be of the weight of a grain of mustard seed, will We bring it. And We are Sufficient to take account. 47.  Wa  Naza-‘ul-mawaaziinal-qista  li-Yawmil-Qiyaamati  fa-laa  tuzlamu  nafsun-  shay-‘aa.  Wa  ‘in-  kaana  misqaala  habbatim-min  khardalin  ‘atayNaa  bihaa.  Wa  Kafaa  biNaa  haasibiin.

 

    Commentary

 

Mawaaziina – (the scales, balances), this word is plural of miizaan, which is an instrumental noun from the word wazan (weight). The scale will be only one, but because the deeds of every individual will be weighed separately, so it has been used here in plural form.

 

Qist – (equality, level, exactness, just without violation of the rights of any individual).

 

It is being warned to the mankind that whatsoever they wish to do in the world intentionally, they should do after thinking carefully, and before doing any work they should consider thoughtfully that whether the work under consideration is according to the commandments mentioned in Holy Qur’an or otherwise. They should not do any such work; by which there is violation of prescribed Orders of Holy Qur’an. There are three fundamental principles of Islam i.e. (1)  Believing in the Unity of the Deity (Tawhiid), (2)  Messenger-hood (Rasaalat) and (3)  the Life after Death. It is part of the 3rd Principle that deeds of every person will be weighed in a Just Balance during the next life (after death) on the Day of Resurrection. And that Scale is This Holy Qur’an which will appear in the form of a Just Balance on that Day. Nothing will be left without weighing from the deeds even equal of the weight of a grain of mustard seed. Good deeds of whose will be weightier than bad deeds (sins), that person will obtain deliverance. But whose sins will be weightier than good deeds, will be punished properly.

 

Then it is commanded: We are Sufficient to take account. Neither We need help of any other in this matter and nor accounts will be reckoned after that. And it is better for you that you should do all works according to the commands of Holy Qur’an, so that you may escape easily on the Day of Resurrection.

Lessons from Holy Qur'an

Warning for the entire mankind

Quran Chapter 17  4 (Pt-15, Stg-4) (L-1782) درس قرآن

Warning for the entire mankind

Surah Baniii ‘Israaa-‘iil (The Children of Israel) – 17

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

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.
(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

وَقَضَيْنَآ إِلَىٰ بَنِىٓ إِسْرَٰٓءِيلَ فِى ٱلْكِتَٰبِ لَتُفْسِدُنَّ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ مَرَّتَيْنِ وَلَتَعْلُنَّ عُلُوًّا كَبِيرًا 4

 

4.  And We decreed for the Children of Israel in the Scripture: Ye verily will work corruption in the earth twice, and ye will become great tyrants. 4.  Wa  qazayNaaa  ‘ilaa  Baniii  ‘Israaa-‘iila  fil-kitaabi  la-tufsi-dunna  fil-‘arzi  marratayni  wa  lata’-lunna  ‘uluwwan-  kabiiraa. 

 

Commentary

 

Lata’-lunna – (you will be haughty and will oppress), actually this word is ta’-lawunna. ‘Uluwwan is its origin, which means “to become high”. Here it aims “tyranny and arrogance”.

 

It is commanded: We had caused to understand them in the Scripture and declared Our decision that if they did not refrain from their wicked deeds, and after knowing the Omnipotence of Allah Almighty; they did not become His sincere obedient, then they would be fallen into bad habits of self-conceit and haughtiness, and they would begin oppressing other people severely. And as a punishment; misfortunes would fall upon them. If once someone is habituated of evil deeds, then it becomes very difficult to give up them. Your limitless evil deeds will entrap you in such calamity that you will suffer change from past evils and begin to go on the straight path for some time. But after a short duration, you will incline unto wickedness again, as any dead smoker of cigarettes leaves smoking, but due to want of power, he desires always to smoke. Eighty per cent of such people begin to smoke again. Like this, you also will work corruption again violently, and you will be punished severely again.

 

It is being warned to the Muslims of Arab and the entire human beings: If you also did not know your Creator (Allah Almighty), His last Messenger Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) and His last Scripture (Holy Qur’an), then you will never be able to leave your bad habits, and you also will be entangled in various kinds of misfortunes in the world and on the Day of Resurrection, you too will be afflicted by the Doom.

 

Our Lord! Forgive all of us and show us the Straight Path.
