Lesson # 814 from the Noble Quran
God will deal with those who create separate groups
Surah ‘Al-‘An-‘aam (Cattle) – Chapter – 6)–Stage – 2
Verse –159 of 165, Section – 20 of 20 (Part – 8)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
|Lo! As for those who sunder their religion and become schismatics, no concern at all hast thou with them. Their case will go to Allah, Who then will tell them what they used to do.||‘Innal-laziina farraquu diinahum wa kaanuu shiya- ‘allasta minhum fii shay. ‘Inna-maaa ‘amruhum ‘ilAllaahi summa yunabbi-‘uhum- bimaa kaanuu yaf-‘aluun.|
In the Section before this, after telling briefly those matters, which Allah Almighty has prescribed for the humankind, it was commanded that “It is the Straight Path”. Adopting any other way leaving It, is going astray. Then it was explained that these are the Revelations, which were described in Torah, and after all, these Commands have been collected in the Holy Quran with some necessary amendments for the human beings of every time (forever in future), and sent down through the last Messenger of the world, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him). Now it is duty of every mankind that they should obey the commands, mentioned in It, because it is the Religion, which has been prescribed by God Almighty for all people at this time. It was admonished earlier: WA’-TASIMUU BIHAB-LILLAAHI JAMII-‘ANW- WA LAA TAFARRAQUU. “And hold fast by the rope (Quran and hadith) of Allah (Almighty and His Messenger) all together and be not disunited”. You should neither break this religion into pieces and nor become schismatic separately. Carrying on the same series, sectarianism in the religion has been prohibited in this verse with an emphasis.
It is commanded: O Muhammad grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him)! You do not have any relationship with those people, who either made deductions in their religion before you and created their separate religious groups, or will be disunited in the religion after you, or by making any separate sect, will withdraw through pride from the society of other Muslims, having ideas or opinions of their own. It manifests that those people have not remained firm upon that religion, which God has revealed unto last Messenger, whereas it is the same religion, which has been fixed always for the humankind and will remain prescribed forever. There is no scope of divisions in it. Allah Almighty will deal with those people Personally, who will create separate groups in this religion, whenever they will attend His Court. At that time their eyes will be opened and they will say: Alas! We talked very foolishly. If we are given a chance to be sent back to the world, then certainly, we shall show to be firm on the True Religion. Those mankind, who do not use first the sense and wisdom, bestowed by Allah Almighty, surely later, they would have to repent.
It can be understood clearly from this verse that the basic principles regarding belief and practical rules are the same, which have been explained in the Holy Quran, which were remained established from the beginning of mankind, have been and will remain prescribed forever. There is no scope of having any separate opinion or making any separate group in the religion. Those Rules are:
- Ascribe No partner with God (Allah Almighty).
- Do good and oblige with the human beings.
- Do not kill anyone unjustly.
- Lewd things, evil talks and deeds are not allowed, whether those are secretly or openly.
- Do justice in all affairs and do not support any close kinsfolk or friend.
- Be united mutually all together.
