Lesson # 821 from the Noble Quran
Duties of the Vicegerent of God (Part-2)
Surah ‘Al-‘An-‘aam (Cattle) – Chapter – 6)–Stage – 2
Verse – 165 of 165, Section – 20 of 20 (Part – 8)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
4. We have come to know from the lessons of Suratul- ‘An-‘aam that the difference of mankind’s different powers and states is not for the purpose that the person, who is powerful, should press to the weak, the rich to the poor, and senior to the junior. But the aim is that this power should be considered as a grant from Allah Almighty and it should be used in performing His works. Which Scriptures have been brought by the Messengers (peace be upon Them) i.e. Torah, Psalms and Gospel etc. including the last Messenger, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) and the last Scripture is Holy Qur’aan, it has been explained into Them that “In which works an individual should spend his those powers, which have been given by Allah Almighty”. Those entire works have been described in Holy Qur’aan and the Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) has caused to learn the method by acting upon those works Himself and established a Way for others. Those entire deeds have been mentioned in the Sayings (‘Ahaadiith) of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him).
5. The individual, who will spend his powers and strength to go on Allah’s prescribed Path and for establishing an example for others, and will remain firm in this attempt till own death, that, the name of Allah Almighty should be success, he is successful and after death, real happiness will be his fortune. Moreover, he will be shown a glare of that happiness in the world too, token of which is satisfaction of the heart, and a desire to correct and help other human beings like him. But that person, who will spend his abilities in evil-deeds due to hearing from the pretenders and those who entangle in the worldly misdeeds, and will establish a bad example for others and will carry on such wicked-deeds until death, he is a failure in the test and he would have to suffer a severe calamity and wrath after death. And in this world also, resultant, he will get nothing except distress, dissatisfaction of the heart and pain.
6. We can understand so much from this verse that the Path, which Allah Almighty has determined for the mankind, is for every human being in the world. Holy Qur’aan and the Message (Sayings) of the Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) are not for any particular individual, class or nation. Everyone can understand and adopt it according to own ability, with those mental and thinking powers, which Allah Almighty has given to him. Publication of his success or failure will be on the Day of Resurrection and then he will be rewarded or awarded in accordance with his deeds. It has been known too that none has any right to compel anyone to accept his ideology. Those people who remain in this inclination that power of the world, wealth and honor should remain with them only, so that they may compel others to obey their commands, they are at error, because they want to snatch the liberty of human beings, and it is totally unlawful. Correct form of living in the world is that the entire human beings should live in such a manner that every person may get opportunity of thinking and meditating at his own. Safety and peace should be established. Every individual may obtain necessities of life, food and drinkable easily, and none should break heart of any other by his tongue, hands or feet. And everyone should have chance to seek the Truth freely. This all is understandable from it that the world is a place of test and everyone should try to get success in the examination satisfactorily and with consolation. Therefore, the world should be vacant from useless turbulence as it should be considered an examination hall of any University or College. Administrators are responsible to provide immediate necessities of the entire candidates, so that they may remain busy in writing the answers of their test’s question papers, and nothing may disturb them.
