Lesson – 3

Such people have born among the Muslims in abundance now a day, who do not care the Holy Qur’aan entirely and Its Commands. Those people are less in numbers, who seek the solution of present problems in Holy Qur’aan. Moreover, in fact, the Holy Qur’aan has been locked up in the cabinets of some Religious Academies and Masaajid, and it seems that the people have decided at their own that It cannot guide them in the present times. So they think, “We do not argue with Its meanings. We can find the solutions of our present problems only in the present developed nations”. The thoughts of this kind are spreading around openly that either Holy Qur’aan should command exactly in the same way as the Europeans are saying, otherwise,  (let’s flee to Allaah), It is an old Book and definitely not applicable nowadays. Some people are engaged in this effort, by observing that the name of Holy Qur’aan should remain somewhere or other, “they would prove by distorting the words of Holy Qur’aan as supportive behaviors of today’s contractors of civilization”.

 

They think, “If we will not say as the European people say and imitate them not exactly as they are, then we shall be living of nowhere, and shall be removed from the world. Therefore, not only in the politics, but they want to be the same like in their living style as well as in the society also. These people desire to prevent from Holy Qur’aan by their deeds and life style, and as they say with their tongue usually that It is an absurd Book (let’s flee to Allaah), so, it is useless to draw attention today towards It. Just like this, they are going far away from Its teachings in their behavior.

 

Holy Qur’aan says: Wa  hum  yan-hawna  ‘anhu  wa  yan-‘awna  ‘anh. {And they forbid (men) from it and avoid it}. Does this command of Holy Qur’aan not fit exactly according to their behaviors and thoughts? Apparently we people praise Islam and Holy Qur’aan but either begin to quarrel with that one, who tells us its correct meanings or treat it extremely inattentive. Is this not the same situation as it was of the people of Makkah (the idolaters) that, when they used to come to the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), come for quarreling and when they used to leave that place, then say: They have only useless old fables. We think that we are gaining our end with the European weapons and machines, and our reputation has been established by their help. Is it not waste of time (let’s flee to Allaah), if we leave this certain present advantage and meditate in old and hereinafter Words of Holy Qur’aan? They are the people of old ideas and conservative (true Muslims), who reflect in these matters.  

 

Is the wine not drunk openly in our country? Are the poor not robbed? Have we not settled our only and biggest object to increase our deposits, wealth and property? Are the theft, fornication, killing and rascality not customary here? Are we not publicizing the sources for spreading the adultery and sinfulness? Are we not choking the neck of humanity by giving the name of art to the dance, music, songs, nudation and nude photography on all kinds of media, which inflates the bestial desires? If all of this is happening then what is there to save us from the destruction?

Torment of the Day of Resurrection is waiting for the disbelievers

Lesson -2

The verses and Chapters of Holy Qur’aan were used to reveal during special and proper situations, explain and guide the Muslims suitably towards the straightway that in which situation, what they would have to do? The Muslims of that time used to bear in mind after hearing the Word of Allaah Almighty and act upon Its Advice. Then the revealed verse or chapter was used to put at its proper place in the Holy Qur’aan, so that the Muslims, who would come after them, may get guidance in their own circumstances, which make to suit the circumstances of its time of revelation to do better for themselves, and act according to the commands and teachings of concerning verse. They should never do against the commands of Allaah Almighty, mentioned in Holy Qur’aan and the Sayings of His Last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), otherwise, they will be punished just like those opponents, who were punished at that time.

 

The situation of that time, when this verse was revealed, was that for twelve years the Messenger of Allaah Almighty used to admonish the people, cause to hear them Holy Qur’aan and describe its commands. At that time, the people of Makkah had been trying constantly, except those who embraced Islam, that: As far as it may be possible, we would have to press Islam, act ourselves against its teachings and enforce others to do so. A facsimile of the condition of those people, which was after the preaching of twelve years, has been made in words, and kept in these verses of Holy Qur’aan. And the decision, which was caused to hear in respect of them, that also exists with it, so that the people of every time are watchful and use to think deeply upon their own condition: Whether is there not the same condition as it were at that time (during the time of revelation of this verse)? If it is, then they should correct it immediately, otherwise they will also be given the same punishment as those people were punished.

 

The situation of that time was that the people used to listen to the Holy Qur’aan and take it as a collection of useless fables of the old people, and prevent others from turning their attention towards it, and they used to hate personally its way. They also wanted to have firm hold on those habits which their ancestors had learned, and they used to say the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) at the time of joining Him: What have you made this false procedure? (Let’s flee to Allaah). It is useless. These idols of us help us in every matter. How can we set them aside?

Holy Qur’aan informed the decision about them that they, the silly people, are making arrangements for their own destruction, and do not know that they will be ruined very soon. Since the next second year of the revelation of this verse, the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) was commanded to migrate from Makkah to Madinah. Everyone knows, what happened with the Makkan people after that. They were disgraced in the world and slain, whereas, they still have to suffer the torment of the Day of Resurrection. Now we should think: What is the condition of today’s Muslims?

Lesson

The events of those people, who passed away before the Revelation of Holy Qur’aan and those, who were present at the time of Its Revelation, have been saved in It. But the purpose of collecting their circumstances is neither cutting a joke and nor any amusement. Moreover, the actual aim is that we should learn a lesson from those collections, take from them warning and correct our deeds, so that we would be saved from those mishaps, which happened upon the earlier people due to their wicked deeds.

 

Only that part of previous events has been taken in Holy Qur’aan which is useful for us as any advice. The behavior of a few infidels of Makkah has been described in this verse. These were effectively great people of that place, and the spirit to maintain their old false custom had settled down in their hearts, because if that code of conduct was changed then they were afraid of losing their dignity through which they used to overpower others.

 

They used to consider Islam and Its system as against their benefits. Therefore, they did dislike it very severely. They used to come unto the Messenger of Allaah Almighty, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) and listen to Holy Qur’aan, but the love of their own established way of life and strong determination to keep up their magnificence used to let their hearts not effect. They could not listen anything except the plans of keeping their respect and dignity high, whether they used to observe thousands of the tokens, were not ready to believe.

 

It is commanded in this verse, “O! Prophet (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him): And of them are some who listen unto Thee, but due to their evil days, We have placed upon their hearts veils, the words of flatterers have been stuffed in to their ears and there is a deafness in their ears, lest they should understand, And even if they saw every token they would not believe therein; so much so that, when they come unto Thee {O Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him)} to argue with Thee, the disbelievers say: This is naught else than fables of the men of old. Observing their conditions, the Muslims should think: whether their condition will or not become as of those because of worldly brawls and poisoned joys.

 

Their cleverness has increased to the extent that they use to see the Muslims apparently, as they want to show that, “we have no enmity with the Muslims, we meet and listen to them attentively. But their talks are only fables of old people, which are not acceptable”. Their coming to the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) is also a trick, so that other people would think that they are trying their best to understand Islam. If their sayings were able to be accepted then they would have accepted them, whereas, absolutely their purpose was not to understand, but to oppose You (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him).

 

“When they go out after meeting you (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) then they tell other people: Do not listen to these sayings, these are (let’s flee to Allaah) useless sayings. And they keep their mode entirely separate from and against Islam. These silly people do not understand this a little that they are not damaging Islam even a little bit by doing so, however, they are preparing for their own destruction”.

 

It is commanded that their presumption has reached the level that they come to you for quarreling and acting like sensible people, these infidels show their opinion: Yes, we listened. It is nothing, otherwise, how could we leave it”? By saying so, they prevent other people from listening to the Messenger’s (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) sayings, and also they run away themselves too from Him. As though they want to destroy the teachings of Holy Qur’aan by their word and deed, and are trying to remove Islam. But the consequence of it will be no other than that these ignorant will be destroyed at their own and Islam will bud and blossom in the world. So, it happened and their silliness disclosed to the whole world.

Lesson

It was mentioned in the previous verse: We shall gather all of them together (on the Day of Resurrection), then We shall ask unto those who ascribed partners unto Allaah (Almighty): Where are now those partners of your make-believe? Call them to help and save you from the punishment of your wicked deeds today.

 

It has been described in this verse that they will become insensible due to the question of Allaah Almighty and will be unable to reply.

 

They used to pretend, deceive, behave deceitfully, cheat, exercise cunning and use tricks in the world. On that Day, neither any trick nor contention will be useful and nor any pretense. Then they will have nothing to say save: By Allaah, our Lord, we never were idolaters. We did never use to ascribe any partner to Allaah. We used to believe in Allaah Almighty only as our Worshipped and we had no relation with anyone else.

 

See how they have been confounded that they swore falsely and concocted lie quickly. No cleverness striked them beside this. Their all impostures, contentions and plans were failed there and they became the criminals of false swearing. So there is no doubt that they are wrongdoers, however they caused to increase their crimes due to false swearing.

 

It is commanded that they will lose their sense after hearing this question and they will have nothing to say as an answer to the above question save this contention that they will swear falsely to prove that they were not wrongdoers/idolaters.

 

They will say: By Allaah, our Lord, we never were idolaters. We did never believe in any other Worshipped but Allaah. This declaration made by them upon oath will be a lie and against the circumstances. Due to this reason, their life will be entangled more in the calamity.

 

At the end, it is commanded: See how they are ensnaring their life in further misfortune by false swearing. The things, which they used to devise in the world, all of them have run away today.

Lesson -2

Let’s consider thoughtfully and ascertain again in this lesson on the verse, we discussed in the previous lesson. A rule has been described in the verse, which can never be broken. That rule is: the consequence of the tyrant will never be good. The word “wrongdoer” (tyrant) is very famous. He is called a wrongdoer, who tyrannizes. Tyranny means either to do such an act or to say such words, which hurt either oneself or someone else, or it lets other people to make wrong assumptions about anyone. The meaning of “the consequence will never be good” is that the tyrant is disgraced and humiliated even in the world, and whether he dwells in a good state for a few days in the beginning, but at last, he is ruined and thrown away. If he is saved in the world someway, after death he will undergo severe torment and restlessness. He dies in such a condition that the people begin to hate him.

 

The worst form of the tyranny is that someone does such an act or talks in such a manner, due to which either he becomes an arrogant of Allaah Almighty, or which causes to spread false notions about Allaah Almighty among the people, or which becomes cause of contempt in respect of either any Prophet/Messenger (peace be upon Him), or Holy Qur’aan, or Islam. In the group of tyranny – ascribing plurality to Allaah Almighty, claim of Prophet-hood after the last Messenger, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), against the principles of Islam interpretation of Holy Qur’aan as one’s mind desires, denial of Hadith {Sayings of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him)} and all matters of this type come.

    

In the beginning of Islam, the tyranny was customary in two forms i.e. calling the Prophet (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) a liar and considering the Holy Qur’aan a collection of some common tales and stories, and not giving any importance to Its Commands. In the previous lesson, these both forms of wrongdoing were discussed, though it is the Cause of this verse’s Revelation. The Formula of this verse will be applied in every age for every form of tyranny. Every tyrant will suffer the same punishment, which has been described in this verse. The form of decision will also be the same, which has been cleared here. That is to say; whosoever will be disgraced and failed at the end, will be tyrant, and whosoever will be rewarded and succeeded, will be known that he was not a tyrant.

 

The Muslims should reconsider their condition after reciting this verse, “Wherever are they not involved in any form of tyranny? Whether are they not saying such words or doing such acts due to which they would have been disgracing either Allaah Almighty, or His Prophet (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), or Holy Qur’aan, or Islam? (May Allaah forbid) Wherever our deeds not as are, there is a fear of insult in respect of all above? If it is true, then we are also wrongdoers and greater tyrants, and if the prescribed punishment of tyrants is not applied on us today, then there is a danger of it tomorrow (on the Day of Resurrection).

 

That has never been proved as wrong, which the Holy Qir’aan has Commanded. There is no need of going in detail, we should think, confessing and being ashamed of our faults that if a Muslim is either a drunkard, gambler, thief, robber, fornicator, dishonest, rascal, greedy of wealth, killer, immoral, arrogant or fond of talking bawdy, then at least, is he not insulting and defaming Islam?

Lesson

It was described in the previous verse: The Word of Allaah Almighty is Itself Witness over Oneness of Allaah Almighty. Then it was told that the Jews and the Christians recognize properly that Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) is a True Messenger of Allaah Almighty and that He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) can never tell a lie.

 

By another argument, these both matters have been proved in this verse. That can be summarized as, if Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) is a liar in His claim of Prophet-hood, then He calumniates against Allaah Almighty. Therefore, on the basis of this reason, He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) is a wrongdoer (Let us flee to Allaah).

 

On the other side, those people, who do not believe in Holy Qur’aan and ascribe partners unto Allaah Almighty, they accuse the greatest and clear Revelation of Allaah Almighty falsely. So they are greater wrongdoers. And there is a prescribed rule for the wrongdoers that they do not succeed at the end.

 

Now the decision that either Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) is a wrongdoer (Let us flee to Allaah) or these disbelievers, will be known by the fact that who succeeds in the last. So, the opponents observed “who failed” and it was clear that Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) succeeded, He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) was True, not a wrongdoer. And His opponents who failed were wrongdoers and liars.

 

It was the decision of the world. The real Day of the Decision (the Day of Resurrection) is near to come. On that Day, Allaah Almighty will gather and ask the entire wrongdoers and sinners, “Where are (now) those partners of your make-believe?”

 

It is commanded that two people are greater wrong:

  • The person, who slanders such a lie against Allaah Almighty, which has been revealed by Him, that is to say; claims falsely of prophet-hood.
  • He, who denies and falsifies His clear Revelations and ascribes partners (unto Allaah Almighty).

 

And there is a prescribed rule for the wrongdoers that they fail at the end. The people have seen in the world that Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) succeeded and His opponents failed, because He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) is True and His opponents are liars.

 

Even on the Day of Resurrection, the idolaters will be embarrassed by saying: Request them today, whom you used to ascribed partners of Allaah Almighty in the world and see, “How much they can help you, otherwise, suffer the punishment of your wrongdoings.

Lesson -2

The aim of the Revelation of Holy Qur’aan has been described very clearly in the previous verses. It has been made incumbent upon the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) and care of Him, upon the entire Muslim nation, to keep this object in front and fulfill it, as it appears from the meaning of above-mentioned verse.

  

It has been mentioned in the previous verse: The Holy Qur’aan has been inspired in Muhammad, the Last Messenger of Allaah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) that the people, who exist at the spot, should be warned by this source (Holy Qur’aan) that there is a very severe danger in either opposing it or not drawing proper attention toward it. And it is the duty of all Muslims to manifest this subject (not only these people, who are present, but through them, also of those human beings, whom this Holy Qur’aan reaches until the Day of Resurrection.

 

It is open that this Holy Word will reach up to more people even after the transfer of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him). At that time, the Messenger of Allaah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) will not grace the world with His presence. So this duty will rest upon His nation, that they should inform the people about the danger of not acting upon the commands, mentioned in Holy Qur’aan. And they should explain its meaning in such a manner that nobody would have any objection that “we were not taught like this, otherwise we would have thought on its commands, and acted upon them”.

 

It is known clearly from this verse that Muhammad is the last Prophet and Messenger of Allaah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) and the Holy Qur’aan is the Last Scripture, which was revealed in the world. No inspiration will be revealed upon anyone after it. It is why that it has been revealed: “Allaah is Witness between me and you. And this Qur’aan hath been inspired in me, that I may warn therewith you and whomsoever it may reach” (with effect from His time to the Day of Resurrection): verse 19a. it is Your and Your nation’s duty after You (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) to teach all of them.

 

The Messenger of Allaah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) performed His duty in such a manner that He caused to hear the people by reciting the Holy Qur’aan and guided: You should continue your attempt also to deliver it up to other people like Me. He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) was not satisfied to cause to hear only but explained the meanings of Holy Qur’aan. And He acted upon it with such a practice that He set the importance of its commands in the hearts of the people well efficiently.

 

There are two parts of this Duty:

  • Learning the words of Holy Qur’aan own by heart and conveying them up to other people, and as the Messenger of Allaah Almighty acted upon it and that, what He commanded to cause to know its meanings, which are called Hadith (Sayings of the Messenger), keep it also safe and cause to reach others.

 

  • Informing the human beings about its importance and necessity for the human life.

 

The Muslims performed first part of the duty to some extent, but sorry to say! Duty of the second part could not be performed properly as it needed. The value of any practical program, as it is Holy Qur’aan, can remain established, when it will be respected personally and properly. To advice others, but not to follow personally, makes the advice useless. With which mouth I say that Islam has the best way of life, whereas I don’t act upon it strictly myself? Verbally I praise it very much, but when the time for action comes, I learn from others “how to dwell” and adopt their modes of living. Observe now a days, as much as fun and play, immodesty and obscenity, wickedness and immorality, deceit and treachery is customary in others, that is, but more than them is customary in the Muslims. But verbally they (the Muslims) say: Fear Allaah Almighty, be pious and adopt abstinence. Is it not unforgivable crime and sin?

Lesson

It was described in the previous verse: Allaah Almighty is The Witness over My {Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him)} purity/truth. And the biggest source of Allaah’s recognition is Holy Qur’aan, introducing the competitive Word like which, all the people have been rendered helpless. If, in the presence of so much big Witness (Qur’aan), you people will continue ascribing plurality to Allaah Almighty, then no wise person will accompany you. And I have come only to spread the teachings of Holy Qur’aan. I can never witness your misconception.

 

There is a straight forward acceptance in this verse, by denying from giving evidence of plurality and infidelity that Allaah (God) Almighty is only One. Allaah Almighty commands: Say! He is only One God. Lo! I am clear of that which ye associate with Him. Whether you believe or disbelieve, only it is the truth. There can be No other Worshipped except Allaah Almighty. And the matter, that; you use to make partners with Allaah Almighty and do not accept His Unity, I do not have any concern with it. My heart hates this deed and I proclaim My (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) open and fair displeasure from your this act (ascribing any partner with Allaah Almighty).

The idolaters used to say to the Messenger of Allaah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him): Produce any witness on your Messenger-hood. We have observed by asking from them, whom God gave the Scripture also, but they have not given any evidence that You are a Messenger.

 

As answer to their question, the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) produced Allaah Almighty as Witness over His Truth, which was discussed in the previous lesson, but the fact regarding not providing the evidence by the Jews and the Christians has been described in this verse.

 

Allaah Almighty says: Those unto whom We gave the Scripture before this (Qur’aan), recognize Our Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) certainly as they recognize their own sons. Surely they have no any doubt that You are Allaah’s Last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), because Glad Tidings and Tokens about You (Muhammad) have been mentioned very clearly in their Scriptures. And they have recognized the Last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) very well by reciting the Revelations into their own Scriptures. But their perversity and worldly covetousness have bent them upon being ignorant intentionally. This is the ill-disposition and greed, which will ruin and destroy them in future, so they do not give evidence of Messenger-hood before you.

Truly; the people, who have been prepared intentionally to harm themselves, how will they believe?

Lesson

The aim of this Chapter is: To explain about Allaah Almighty and His all excellence i.e. He is One. He has neither any associate nor any partner. All creatures like animals, birds, beasts (of prey or other), cattle, demons, mankind, Angels, Prophets, Saints, Spiritual Guides and Messengers (peace be upon Them) etc. the entire creatures are His servants. None of them can do anything without His Command. Worship none but Him only. Ask or pray not for a boon from any creature, nor seek any other for help except Allaah Almighty. In this regard, this Chapter (Surah) is an Explanation of Surah 1- ‘Al-Faatihah (The Opening) and Surah  112 – ‘Ikhlaas (The Unity). That, which has been described briefly in those both Chapters, has been explained vastly in this Chapter.

 

Every mention, every event and even that every sentence/verse of this Chapter keeps this aim in front that God Almighty is One. The entire Powers and Authorities are only of Him. And all the things, whether those are biggest, are worthless before His Greatness and Magnificence.

 

It is commanded that Allaah Almighty is the Omnipotent and Excelling over His slaves (all creatures). Whether a mankind has any greatest dignity, anyhow he is His servant. Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (peace be upon Them) are also the Servants of Allaah Almighty and helpless before Him. He commands, and it is the only duty of the Servants to obey His Commands. They take just pride in being His Servants.

 

This Promise has been mentioned very clearly in 2nd Kalimah “The Word of Testimony” that “I bear witness that (there is) no god except Allaah; One is He, no partner hath He, and I bear witness that Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) is His Servant and Messenger”. Think a little, then who can be greater than the Last Messenger of Allaah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), who turn away from being His servant? If anyone says, “Who is witness of your this claim?” Ask him, “Who can be biggest witness in your opinion”? Common sense replies: That can be the Biggest Witness, Who is Aware and Knower of the reality of everything. And none has this excellence except Allaah Almighty, so He is the Witness between Me and you.

 

The idolaters said to Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him): If you are a Messenger, Who is your witness? Allaah Almighty taught His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) this answer to their question: Say! Allaah Almighty is Witness over my Truth. If becoming ignorant, they ask You: Who is Allaah? And if they show carelessness from Our Revelations, then You should say them: One such Powerful Token is present before you, denial from which, is equal to the denial of one’s own existence. That Token is This “Holy Qur’aan”. Can you say that, this Word can be of any human being? It has invited you Itself: If you consider Me the word of any mankind, then it is a challenge for all human beings forever “make and show the word like Me (Holy Qur’aan)”, and it has claimed: If the entire people of the world try collectively to make any such book equal to the Holy Qur’aan, they will never be able to do so.

 

While it is not the Word of any human being, then it manifests that surely it would be the Word of that Person, Who Knows more than any mankind, and certainly He is Allaah Almighty, and I, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) produce Him as My Witness.

 

The same meaning has been explained in this verse: My Witness is Allaah Almighty and proof of Allaah’s existence is This “Holy Qur’aan”. It is commanded: Unhesitatingly I produce Allaah Almighty as My Witness because I have His Holy Word with Me (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him). And you know that this Holy Word cannot be of any other than Allaah Almighty, because the entire human beings have been rendered helpless from producing any such Word like This. Now it is My duty that I should rise up with this Holy Word, Which Allaah Almighty has revealed upon Me, and inform all of them including you, that it is True, what has been written in it, and certainly that person will be ruined, who will go against it.

 

After so biggest Revelation and Evidence, will you even then continue to cram that Allaah Almighty is not Worshipped alone, but there are some more worshipped? You will be responsible of your own, if you will not give up stupidity. However I shall never bear such witness.

Lesson

The pattern of terrible agony has been described in such a manner in this verse, which will be suffered by the disbelievers on the Day of Resurrection, that dictation of any other cannot explain so much beautifully, and that, there is none helper in the calamity save Allaah Almighty. So you should beg in front of Him, if you want anything. That, which you will obtain, will be with His Mercy. Everything is in His Power. No power has any other person that he may do something for you.

                                                           

It is commanded that if someone entangled in the punishment (bodily pains, trouble, restlessness, distraction, perception of despair and helplessness will bring the soul at the stage of half-dead), on the Day of Resurrection, it will be very difficult for anyone to come out from it. There is none that can relieve therefrom save Allaah Almighty.

 

It has been indicated in the verse that none can save from the pain and hardship of the Day of Resurrection except Allaah Almighty. The person, who will be saved, will escape only due to the Mercy of Allaah Almighty. This matter will be manifested upon everyone on the Day of Resurrection like the daylight, because when every person will observe one’s near relatives, friends and familiars running away from oneself, will find them fallen into “each one for itself”. Kinsmen and women, friends and familiars, the teacher and the chief, the saint and the friends of God Almighty will answer that “We are unable to do something”.

 

The people will report every Prophet and Messenger (from Adam to Muhammad including Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, David and Jesus (peace be upon Them) turn by turn, and request to help them. Every Prophet and Messenger (peace be upon Them) will reply them that they cannot help them. In the last, all of them will produce themselves in the court of last Messenger, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him). He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) will be present in the Court of Allaah Almighty and request, “I may kindly be permitted to mediate and recommend the creature”.

 

On the Day of Resurrection, everyone will find entirely powerless and helpless to the whole like Angels, Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon Them), human beings, spiritual guides, Saints, lords and demons etc. (the entire creatures). But by mentioning about that Day, Holy Qur’aan wishes to cause to engage the attention in this side that everybody should understand today, in this world, and believe that all above-mentioned are helpless and powerless save Allaah Almighty, and don’t beg for anything from anyone. Believing in Allaah Almighty means, “you are sure that none can do for you anything except Him”.

 

If the human being has such certain belief in this world as he would be known on the Day of Resurrection, then it will be called “’Iimaan bil gayb” (Belief in the hidden world), that is to say; to consider only Allaah Almighty as one’s Doer and Supplier of the wants, and to supplicate only from Him. The consequence of such belief will be that the Believer will be bestowed with the deliverance from the punishment.

 

It is commanded that trouble, pain, calamity, distress (the entire) is from the side of Allaah Almighty. Neither has any person any power to hurt anyone but He, and nor anyone can remove any detriment without Him. In the same manner, ease, pleasure and goodness are also from His side. Neither anyone can cause to gain anyone save Him, and nor can supply any want, because everything is in His Power. Without Him, the whole are helpless and humble. But the stupid people of this time, ask His servants to help at the time of difficulty, leaving Allaah Almighty. They have fixed many kinds of customs. They say, “the help, which we want from the Prophets (peace be upon Them) and the Saints (‘Awli-yaa’) (may Allaah be merciful on Them) is for the purpose that none can climb on the room without a stair. It is replied that obedience of the commands of Allaah Almighty is its stair, and He has ordered that you should not call anyone for help except Him.
