Thinking deeply in the contents after reciting the verses of Holy Quran is a Foundation of all worships. Important matters have been taught us in this section, which ended in the previous lesson. First of all, it was commanded that the people, who deny the Noble Qur’an by saying: Allah did not reveal any Scripture. It does not suit them, because they believe in Torah of the Messenger Moses (peace be upon Him) as a Scripture, Which was revealed by Allah Almighty. After it, they should understand that Allah Almighty, Who revealed Torah, from Which, the lucky people accrued the Light and Guidance, now The same Lord has inspired Holy Qur’an. Denying This Word is just like denying the Power and Wisdom of Allah Almighty.
Then Beauties of Holy Qur’an have been described, that this Scripture is most welcome and gracious and blessed. And It confirms those all Scriptures as true and correct, which came before It. As Those (Holy Books) were source of Light and Guidance for human being in Their times, likewise This Holy Qur’an will carry on spreading the Light and Guidance in these last days of the world till the Hereafter.
After this, we are told that those people believe in This Noble Qur’an who believe in the Day of Resurrection. It is duty of every believer that they should establish their prayers regularly after having belief in the Hereafter and Holy Qur’an. Since the prayer is squeeze of entire worships, source of being saved from the indecent talks and evil acts, therefore, it aims that the Believers of the Doomsday and the Holy Qur’an will be the people, who will be obedient of Allah Almighty, who will escape from wicked deeds and will have good thoughts.
After that, the method of creating believe in the Day of Resurrection has been described, which is, remembering own death and the calamities of its agonies, and thinking about faithlessness of the world and its things. Everything will be kept remained here and the human alone will go in his way. Nothing will accompany him besides own good or bad deeds, which he would have done in this world.
The result of deeds (good or bad) will come before every individual right after the death. At that moment, when his eyes will be closed hither, he will be able to see clearly the things belong to thither without further delay. His belief will be perfect at that time. The wise person is that, who understands by observing the inconstancy of the world that his stay in this world is casual, believe in the Hereafter, and do whatever can be possible in this world to be saved from the torment of the Hell. Looking at others dying, it cannot not be possible that anyone would not think that he would also have to die very soon. But being trapped by the worldly business, the humankind becomes careless, and solaces by enjoying amusements. He should understand that surely he has to die.
All wise people say that due to evil deeds, severe anxiety and discomfort will have to be suffered by every wrongdoer after death. Therefore, he should worry about living this short life, so that the comfort may be acquired after death. After thinking deeply in this matter, everyone will begin to believe in Holy Qur’an, in which, it has been mentioned very clearly that “if you wish ease and comfort after death then you should obey It, do and live as It guides. The Holy Qur’an was inspired in this world only for the purpose that, the human beings should not look only for the leisure and comfort of the world, but he should be more careful about the life after death, and try to obtain the comfort and ease for that time, otherwise nothing will be changeable after death.
When the mankind will turn towards the Holy Qur’an then It will guide him that they should worship Allah Almighty, establish the prayer timely and regularly. In fact, the secret of our success and welfare in the both lives is hidden in this Prayer.
