|O ye assembly of the jinn and humankind! Came there not unto you Messengers of your own who recounted unto you My tokens and warned you of the meeting of this your Day? They will say: We testify against ourselves and the life of the world beguiled them, and they testify against themselves that they were disbelievers.||Yaa ma’-sharal-jinni wal-‘insi ‘alam ya’-tikum Rusulum-minkum yaqus-suuna ‘alaykum ‘AayaaTii wa Yunzi-ruunakum liqaaa-‘a Yawmikum haazaa.

Lesson – 2
Every verse of the Holy Qur’an has a Message for us. Neither the right of that verse is paid until we understand its Message thoroughly, and nor there is any hope of our worldly, as well as the next-worldly life’s correction (the life of the Hereafter). First of all, we should bear this matter deeply in mind that we have been given the life of this world only to dress our life of the Hereafter.
It is never the purpose of this life that everyone would have to begin collecting the goods of this world. Every time the wish that all good things should be in one’s possession, and to say others, “Warning, do not look at me, otherwise; I have collected so much power and strength that I can drive your eyes out”.
Holy Qur’an commands: See! You should not forget the Day of Resurrection, falling in the snares of the world. Honor and dignity, comfort and ease, and the wealth and the government of this world, these entire things are accidental. After this, another life will begin and in that life, only those people will acquire the comfort and peace, who do not desire the wealth, respect and dignity of this world, and do not spread the persecution, dispute, disturbance and mischief due to their stubbornness and intransigence.
Noble Qur’an is leading openly: You should manage your life in such a way in this world that career of everyone together is arranged, every human being may get food, clothes, accommodation for living, household goods and all necessary things easily. None should hoard anything, which is necessity of any other. That person, whosoever is either doing so, or encouraging such people, who do so, he learnt nothing from Holy Qur’an.
If those people, who believe in it, have been gathering the worldly wealth and trying to get the dignity of this world, then they should understand that they do not know the method of learning the teachings of Holy Qur’an. And like others, this world has entrapped them also in the deception. They should meditate in this verse and understand that, what they should do themselves and which method of living should be taught other people.
It has been mentioned clearly in this verse that the entire secrets will be opened on the Day of Resurrection. Whole of the human beings and the jinn (demons) will confess without hesitation that they had been entangled in useless matters giving up the advantageous things. At that time, they will be reproached and due to this reproof, which anguish will their hearts suffer, that will be very severe torment for their life.
There is only one method to be saved from that torment, which is:
- Believe in Allah Almighty and His last Prophet (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him).
- Make the verses of Holy Qur’an “A complete Code of Deeds” for your life.
- Admit the Truth regarding the life in the Hereafter and be prepared in this world to escape from the difficulties of that Day.
- Nothing is kept in the apparent dignity, useless noise, pump and show for a little time (of this life). Do not be deceived from it
- Keep examined yourself whether have you not involved in any calamity of the infidelity?
These entire matters are required to be performed today i.e. in the life of this world, otherwise; when your eyes will open after death in the Hereafter, there will be nothing other than distress and pain in your fate.
