Stage – 2, Verse – 88 of 129, Section – 11 of 16 (Part – 10)
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
|88. But the Messenger and those who believe with him strove with their wealth and their lives, such are they for whom are the good things, and such are they who are the Successful.||88. Laakinir-Rasuulu walla-ziina ‘aamanuu ma-‘ahum jaahaduu bi-‘amwaa-lihim wa ‘anfu-sihim. Wa ‘ulaaa-‘ika lahumul-khay-raat. Wa ‘ulaaa-‘ika humul-Muf-lihuun.|
About the Hypocrites, it was described in the previous verse that these people do neither give any importance to Islam and Muslims, and nor determine their effort of going forth; as an effort, and nor consider their sacrifices as “a tent or other baggage sent on in advance” for success.
Out of them, rich and effective people come unto Messenger of Allah Almighty (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) formally and by making some stories of hither and thither, they ask to grant them leave from including in the battle. They wish to sit at home along with disabled people.
Reason of it is not that; really they are disabled of any kind, but actually, veil is lying on their understanding and their hearts are encaged strongly; that any intelligible thing cannot be contained into them. They consider that the works of God’s Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) and Muslims are nothing but only a game.
They say carelessly: Verily the Muslims have not faced any contentious nation so far, and now they are going to fight against heavy odds (Syria and Rome). We hope that they will sit down in the first stage like a bubble; otherwise, consequently, they will defeat these (Muslims). And it will not take too much time because they (the Syrians) have conquered the world. How can they (Muslims) succeed against them? Suppose, if they succeeded, then how many days? Against them, in this verse, condition of the supporters of Islam has been narrated, who do not hesitate from sacrificing for the Cause of their Religion.
It is commanded: You heard the circumstances of the Hypocrites. Now let us discuss about the true Believers. These are the people who believe in the Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) and along with it they partake in every effort of the development of Islam wholeheartedly.
It is the Dignity of the Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) and His followers that when any chance comes into their hand, they present themselves along with their wealth to sacrifice, and whatever is commanded to them, they comply with heartily without any hesitation. What will be result of these obedient people? It cannot be decided by the Hypocrites. Allah Almighty has full Decision Power, Who says: Success of the both Worlds and the best life is only for them, and they will be passed everywhere in their efforts and will find good fruit of their good deeds.
Success of the world will be disclosed very soon, and they will be given remuneration on the Day of Resurrection also, which will be described in the next verse.
