Lesson # 890 from the Noble Quran
The final Decision is in the Control of Allah
Surah ‘A’-RAAF (The Heights) – Chapter – 7)
Stage – 2, Verse – 87 of 206, Section – 11 of 24 (Part – 8)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
|And if there is a party of you which believeth in that wherewith I have been sent, and there is a party which believeth not, then have patience until Allah judge between us. And He is the Best of all who deal in judgment.||Wa ‘in kaana taaa-‘ifatum-minkum ‘aamanuu bil-laziii ‘ur-siltu bihii wa taaa-‘ifa-tul-lam yu’-minuu fas-biruu hattaa yah-kumAllaahu bay-nanaa. Wa Hu-wa Khayrul-Haakimiin.|
Prophet Shu-aib (peace be upon Him) explained before His nation: Believe in Allah Almighty. Listen to that Message, which He has sent unto you through Me and act upon it. I have come to you, sent by Him, and whatever I say; that is for your wellness. Tokens of Mine being truth are very clear. You should not have any doubt in My Prophet-hood. Correct your dealings with people. Give full measure and full weight, and wrong not mankind in their goods. Work not confusion in the earth after the fair ordering. Don’t torment anyone. You should not try to mislead by threatening or enticing any such individual, who is ready to act upon fair matter after hearing. There are many proofs and arguments for believing in Allah Almighty. Is this proof not sufficient that He caused to promote you from a lower level to higher? Your population was few, He increased it. You had not enough food and other commodities to fulfill your requirements, now those are in superabundance. This entire is kindness of Allah Almighty, otherwise, if He had ensnared you in diseases, droughts and other disasters, then neither your population could be increased and nor wealth. It is not too much difficult to understand these straight forward words. And it is surprising that maximum people from you do not understand them.
It is commanded that Prophet Shu-aib (peace be upon Him) said to His nation after causing to know them: If even now, you all people don’t understand My sayings, and if there is a party of you which believes in that wherewith I have been sent, and there is a party which does not believe, then I cannot compel all of you to understand and believe. It is not My Post that I should enforce you towards the Straight Path, which has been prescribed by Allah Almighty. If some of you believe and some disbelieve, then its final decision is not in My Hand that the believers are successful and disbelievers are failure. This decision is in the Control of Allah Almighty.
I frighten from the wrath of Allah Almighty to those people, who disbelieve. None is better but He is the Best of all who deal in Judgment. Whatever He decides, issues that decision at once also. Nobody can obstruct Him. What can I do now other than it that I should leave the decision for Him and say: You should have patience until the judgment of Allah and I too.
