Lesson # 1102 from Holy Qur-’aan
All benefits of world are nothing against Hereafter
Surah ‘TAWBAH or BARAAA-‘AH (REPENTANCE) – Chapter – 9)
Stage – 2, Verses – 62 & 63 of 129, Section – 8 of 16 (Part 3/4th of – 10)
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
|62. They swear by Allah to you (Muslims) to please you, but Allah, with His Messenger, hath more right that they should please Him if they are Believers.
63. Know they not that whoso opposeth Allah and His Messenger, for him is fire of Hell, to abide therein for ever? That is the extreme abasement.
|62. Yahli-fuuna Billaahi lakum li-yurzuu-kum. Wallaahu wa Rasuu-luHuuu ‘ahaqqu ‘any-yur-zuuHu ‘in- kaanuu Mu’-miniin.
63. ‘Alam- ya’-lamuuu ‘annahuu many-yuhaadi-Dillaaha wa RasuulaHuu fa-‘anna lahuu naara Jahan-nama khaa-lidan- fiihaa . Zaalikal-khizyul-‘aziim.
Yuhaadi-du – (oppose), it is a present tense, which has been derived from the word muhaad-datun and origin of which is hadd. Hadd means “aside and margin”. Muhaad-datun means “to stand on opposite side for fighting, to oppose face to face”.
It was a habit of the Hypocrites that when they used to get any opportunity and find the field empty, they used to find faults in the Muslims and say that they were very bad. Even, they had resolved on mischief, although apparently, they used to make with them very deep brother-hood.
Whenever their treachery was betrayed, they used to come running unto the Muslims and say: Believe not in rumors against us. They used to swear and try to assure that: Our intentions are clear from your side. We are never desirous of your dissension and loss. Yours and our friendship is very good.
Telling such kinds of lies, they used to try to persuade and content the Muslims. In this verse, the state of their cleverness has been explained. It is commanded that these people come running unto you after betraying their secrets and assure you by swearing that: We are well-wishers of you only.
Though, it is not useful if you please in such a way. The actual thing is that they should please God Almighty and His Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam), because God Almighty is Aware of their natural condition very well. And He informs also to His Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) about their tricks now and then.
Every true Believer should know that if they believe then they should try to conciliate Allah Almighty and His Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam), otherwise it must be noted by them that whoso opposes God Almighty and His Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam), for him is fire of Hell, to abide therein for ever. And it is so much extreme abasement and disgrace that against it, entire casual benefits of the world are worthless.
