Lesson # 855 from the Noble Quran
Word of God has knowledge, guidance and mercy
Surah ‘A’-RAAF (The Heights) – Chapter – 7)
Stage – 2, Verses – 51b, 52 & 53a of 206, Section – 6 of 24 (Part – 8)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
| 51b. So this Day We have forgotten them even as they forgot the meeting of this Day of theirs as they used to deny Our Tokens.
52. Verily We have brought them a Scripture which We expounded with knowledge, a guidance and a mercy for a people who believe.
53a. Await they aught save the fulfillment thereof?
|51b. Fal-yawma nansaahum kamaa nasuu li-qaaa-‘a yawmi-him haazaa, wa maa kaanuu bi-‘AayaatiNaa yaj-haduun.
52. Wa laqad ji’-Naahum- bi-kitaabin-fassalNaahu ‘alaa ‘ilmin hudanw-wa rahmatal-liqawminy- yu’-minuun.
53a. Hal yanzuruuna ‘illaa ta’-wiilah.
Ta’-wiil – (to be fulfilled), origin of this word is ‘awala, which means “to return, to come back at own place”. The word ma-‘aal has been derived from it too, which means “antecedent, the end”. Ta’-wiil will be meant “to expose the last object, to fulfill that, what is said”.
It was explained in the previous verses that those people will live into the Hell in the worst condition, who were disobedient in the world and they will ask alms from the dwellers of the Garden, but they will deny and say to them: We are not permitted to give you anything from here. Allah Almighty has expounded its reason in this verse.
Our Lord commands: We shall forget these infidels on the Day of Resurrection and deprive them from the blessings of the Garden, because they did not draw their attention toward Our Revelations in the world and forgot the meeting of the Doomsday. They have seen today (in the Hereafter): That was True, which We commanded. But believing after observing is not useful. If they had believed in the Day of Resurrection during their life time in the world, that was advantageous today for them. Today is not the day of believing but it is the Day of torment for the disbelievers.
God Almighty will say: We had sent down Our Word unto them in the world. No random guessed matters did exist in Holy Qur’aan. We had expounded clearly which was written in it. The Scripture was entire proof and argument for the Believers. These people had sufficient wisdom and sense. It was not too much difficult for them to understand Our Book, if they had tried to draw their attention into it. O Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him): Ask them today! What is the reason of your denial from acceptance, while everything has been described very clearly? Complete state of the Garden and the Fire has been expounded before you. Are you waiting now that every occurrence, which has been mentioned, should come in front of your eyes? Understand it carefully that it can never be so in this world. Here, you would have to believe in Our Word whole-heartily. You will see everything in the Day of Resurrection.
