Lesson # 760 From the Noble Quran
The eye of the mankind is too powerless to see Allah
Surah ‘Al-‘An-‘aam (Cattle) – Chapter – 6)–Stage – 2
Verses – 104 & 105 of 165, Section – 13 of 20 (Part – 7)
In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Although the eye of humankind has not been given so much power that it may see Allah Almighty and actual reality openly, but so much sense is bestowed to everyone that he can understand the Invisible affairs by observing the Portents sent down by God Almighty. He has spread these Signs in the entire universe. By looking these tokens, the human being should know properly these four things, upon which, his deliverance and welfare depends, and those matters have been described in the previous lesson. That is to say; correct conception regarding Allah Almighty, the Noble Quran and the Life, and then, that; to be prepared whole-heartily for obeying the commands of Allah Almighty. These four things can be known well by the mankind by observing the tokens sent down by Allah Almighty.
The biggest Revelations out of these portents are the verses of Holy Quran, by thinking deeply into which, the humankind will be able to know these all things. He will understand the purpose and meaning of the life perfectly, because Holy Quran will guide him that every animate being has to die and at the time of death, he will carry away many wishes and intentions with himself, which could not be completed during the life of this world.
It is the portent of this matter that there should be another life for him (human being), in which, his entire desires and intentions can be completed, that is; the Life in the Hereafter. The human being should get ready in this world for that Life and ask from the Holy Quran: Of which sort, those wishes and intentions should be completed at their own, so that those may be fulfilled in the Doomsday, and how should one live in this world for fulfilling the wishes and intentions on the Day of Resurrection.
Then it will be known that the mankind is created by Allah Almighty and for him, the life of this world, as well as the life of the Hereafter has been established. One should know Allah well and properly, so that the Value and Dignity of His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) and His Scripture, Holy Qur’aan is instilled in the heart and the acting upon His commands becomes easy. And it may also be understood that first of all works, is offering and establishing the prayer with punctuality after knowing everything.
These Revelations and Portents are very clear and evident. That person will be lucky who will see them, and he will reap the advantage. But that person, who will close his eyes from them: Tell them O Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him)! I can make you to understand the Quran and guide you, how to act upon Its Commands. Moreover, it is not my duty to admonish you forcibly and carry you on the straight path, because I have not been appointed as a keeper over you that I should use you as laborers.
Then it has been commanded to the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him): Look! How do we expound Our Revelations in different ways again and again? It is demand of Our Merciful Grace that We put Our Revelations exchanging before the human beings, and cause the Truth to bear in his mind with rhetoric. We know it that all of them will not be ready to understand these Revelations, but they will try to vanish their effect by saying: You have studied these Revelations from someone/anywhere, and repeat before us after learning from them by heart.
But nothing shall occur from it because the wise people and those, who have knowledge, will understand them truly, reap advantage from Our way of Speaking, and that aim, which is required from it, will be fulfilled in good manner i.e. Our Revelations will be manifested well upon the wise people, whereas, the stupid people will inherit nothing.
