Surah ‘A’-RAAF (The Heights) – Chapter – 7)
Stage – 2, Verse – 84 of 206, Section – 10 of 24 (Part – 8)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Allah Almighty has sent a Straight and Simple Message for the human being by means of His Messengers (peace be upon Them) and Scriptures, for understanding of which, the human sense is quite sufficient, which He has bestowed Himself to every mankind. Messengers of Allah Almighty (peace be upon Them) and His Holy Books explained before us that; this Plant of the Universe; which is before you, Allah Almighty has created it with His Omnipotence and its entire administration is also in His Control. Everything of the universe is running according to prescribed system of God Almighty, whether that is earthly or heavenly. And nothing can go up or down, right or left, hither or thither from that way, which has He determined for everything. Every power and force is under His rule and works as He commands.
Countless forces have been performing their duties around, beneath and above the earth, and revolutionary changes take place in the earth by means of them. Hot and cold, day and night, superficial changes, becoming of water dry and dryness as water, rain, dust storms, earthquakes etc. the whole are blandishments of these forces. These all are included in the formation of the earth. Reasons of their happening spring up, whenever God Almighty commands. Until it is confirmed by Him, these forces will be working. Till when the earth is to remain, no force can exceed its limit. When it will be approved by Allah Almighty to abolish it, then these forces will show their thrust overly and the earth will be destroyed and ruined.
After creating the humankind, Allah Almighty commanded to live in these environments and said: These whole powers and forces, which you observe, are in My Control. You have to live for some days in the condition of pulling and taking away by these forces. Until you live here, dwell, but according to My Instructions, which are delivered to you by means of My Messengers (peace be upon Them). You have to leave this place at last one day, and then your superior life will begin. That individual, who would have passed own life in accordance with My Guidance, tranquility and repose will be in his/her luck only during the next life. Satan is your deadly foe in this world. He will seduce you and try his best as much as it will be possible for him that you should not adopt that Path, which I have determined for you.
If you gave up My prescribed Straight Path, it will be cause of My anger. You all should become one nation all together and hold fast the Path of Allah Almighty, and prevent everyone with your collective strength from going (astray) out from this Path. If you entire people would be corrupted, then I shall destroy you in this world by means of any disaster, earthquake, dust/rain storm or volcanic materials, as I have ruined many nations before you.
My Messengers (peace be upon Them) have told you the stories (of ancient people) by means of My Scriptures. Take those facts as warning. It is My Rule that until sufficient people will continue to tell My Commands in any nation, I shall not send down any common disaster due to their blessing. But if they remained only a few, then I shall save them and destroy remaining all other people. The torment of after death is a separate.
