Lesson # 860 from the Noble Quran
How to be saved from agony of the Last Day?
Surah ‘A’-RAAF (The Heights) – Chapter – 7)
Stage – 2, Verse –56 of 206, Section – 7 of 24 (Part – 8)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Three verses of that Section end here, which was begun from Lesson # 857. We should not go forth without considering it well. Holy Qur’aan teaches us itself that we should recite its verses and stay at considerable point for thinking that: What these verses desire to instruct us? Therefore, we should consider into them thoughtfully twice, thrice or as much as we can.
At the end of the Section, previous to this, it was described that when the evildoers and disobedient people will see with their own eyes the agony of the Fire of Hell and blessings of the Garden, they will scream spontaneously: Those Messenger (peace be upon Them), whom Allah Almighty had sent unto us in the world, they used to speak the quite truth.
Would that we have any intercessors today, who may intercede for us, so that we may be delivered from this severe torment and we can be returned to life on the earth that we may act and show becoming obedient servants of our Lord. After that, it was told that “they have lost their souls having trust in their baseless views.
After drawing so much clear plan of heart-breaking future event, it was necessary that the method of “How to be saved from that agony” was required to be explained clearly; so that the human being would not have any such reason that “We were not caused to know “How to be saved from such heart-breaking grief and repentance”.
These verses have been causing to understand that your Lord, Whose Revelations will you accept after looking as the Truth on the Day of Judgment, you will be convinced that He and His Messengers (peace be upon Them) were True, today He desires to describe you through these verses that you should know Him today, and be saved from every kind of grief, repentance and anguish of the Day of Resurrection, and He, Lord is Allah Almighty (Eminent is God’s Glory), Who is Creator and Ruler of all.
Behold! Nothing can be born at its own. Certainly anyone should be its creator. So you should understand from it that this vast arrangement of the heavens, the earth and the universe, in which, the sun, the moon and the stars have been doing their work at their own places. Something is moving whereas something is static. Sometimes it is day and sometime night. Somewhere is sunshine and somewhere shade, these entire have not been created itself. Their Creator is Allah (God) Almighty, Who is Lord of all of us. He gives Command to everything and everything obeys His Command. Nothing can disobey Him.
Brothers and sisters! It is incumbent for you too that like other entire creatures, you should admit your God and Lord to Allah Almighty and call upon Him humbly and in secret, and do not overstep the bounds of your Lord’s obedience being deceived by the Devil.
See! God has made arrangement to keep this earth up till a stated term and you have been settled here giving you the most powers and strength. By sending the Messengers (peace be upon Them) and Holy Scriptures, complete and manifest Guidance have been revealed for your deeds. You should not commit any such work in the presence of these Guidance, due to which, the violence spreads in the earth, because if corruption will spread, it will spread due to your own wicked deeds. Otherwise, all remaining sources of fair ordering have been performing their duty. If your acts would be good and you established the aim doing good works, then Mercy of Allah Almighty is nigh unto you and you will be saved from all disasters of the Day of Resurrection.
