Lesson # 586 From Holy Qur’aan
Believe in Messenger; it is better for you
Surah Nisaaa’ (Women) – Chapter – 4)
Verse –170 of 176, Section – 23/24 (Part – 6)
|O mankind! The Messenger hath come unto you with the Truth from your Lord, therefore believe; (it is) better for you. And if ye disbelieve, still, lo! Unto Allaah belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and the earth. And Allaah is ever Knower, Wise.||Yaaa-‘ayyu-hannaasu qad jaaa-‘akumur-Rasuulu bil-haqqi mir-Rabbikum fa-‘aaminuu khayrallakum. Wa ‘in takfuruu fa-‘inna LIllaahi maa fis-samaawaati wal-‘arz. Wa kaanAllaahu ‘Aliiman Hakiimaa.|
Hakiimun – (Wise), this excellence of Allaah Almighty has come in the Holly Qur’aan again and again. It is made from “Hikmah”, which means ‘to say such words, which have advantage into them’, wisdom. It is apparent that only He can do this, who knows everything and able to organize the information in such a manner that the results remain positive until final.
A principle was described in the previous lesson that Allaah Almighty does not wish to compel anyone towards the Straight Path. Everybody has choice to choose the way for him/herself. In accordance with this principle, it was commanded, “Those people, who have disbelieved and done wrong, Allaah Almighty will never forgive them, neither will He guide them unto a path,
except the path of Hell, wherein they will abide forever.
It has been mentioned in this verse that after giving the option to the human being, Allaah Almighty has told very clearly about the Straight Path by sending His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him). The Way of Messengers (peace be upon Them) is the Way of Belief. Having belief would prove best for the mankind at the end. Even after so much clearness, if any person disbelieves, then he/she should bear in mind that he/she cannot go out anywhere from the Omnipotence possession of Allaah Almighty. He has caused to know the humankind it’s good and bad. The principles of the religion, which have been determined, have been determined very carefully and intentionally. And their result will be ease and comfort at the end.
O mankind! This Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) has come unto you with the Truth from your Lord Almighty to guide you towards the Straight Path. Therefore! Have faith in His sayings, obey His command and believe; it is better for you. He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) wishes to carry you towards the Path of belief, where, there is no fear of any kind. And if you do not understand, still, then it is fault of your sense. Think a while! He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) guides you for your own good and He does not demand any retaliation of it from you. Neither collection of wealth and property is His object and nor is He fond of sway. He has nothing in His heart other than your good-will. There is no loss of Allaah Almighty, if you will disbelieve. Unto Allaah Almighty belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and the earth. His Empire will suffer no injury due to your disbelief. And Allaah Almighty is ever Knower and Wise.
