Changing the way of life as a Believer

Surah YUUNUS – 10 (JONAH)

BisMillaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim

In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Lesson

The Idolaters of Makkah had this misunderstanding that their forefathers had been prostrating before their idols since centuries and gaining their all ends with the help of their idols. They thought: How can we change our way of life by saying a Person (Muhammad –grace, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be on Him)? We accept that He has all good qualities, but how can we obey one Individual against a great multitude?

 

They used to say: Nearly entire people of Arab have believed since many years and they have faith even today too that Allah does not do anything without the intercession and help of these idols.

 

One Man stands from us and says that He is Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, blessings and peace be on Him) and produces a Book before us (Holy Qur’aan), in which it is written that the idols are nothing. Neither they can hurt any person and nor profit. These are lifeless stones or trees, blind, dumb and deaf, which can neither give anything to anyone and nor can mar in any case.

 

Everything in the heavens and in the earth has been saying: I am not in my own control. From which direction you hear; this voice comes: Our existence and appearing is exactly according to the Knowledge of Allah Almighty. Plan of entire universe and for life of every living being has been made by Him separately. He knows every atom and particle.

 

In the Holy Qur’aan, Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, blessings and peace be on Him) has been commanded at several places: Cause to know these people thoroughly that if many people lay but to stake upon any matter, even then; that cannot be good and correct. The right is only that; which is right according to the knowledge of Allah Almighty, Who has explained it in His Word (Holy Qur’aan) in accordance with His that Knowledge. The actual thing is This Book (Holy Qur’aan). If the entire human beings reject It and only One Person accepts It, that One Person is Right and other all disbelievers are wrong.

 

As, such misunderstanding about the Holy Qur’aan did exist during the presence of the Holy Messenger (grace, blessings and peace be on Him); and it exists today also that the amendment or change can be made in it with the opinion of community (public). But it is entirely wrong. Its Principles can never be changed whether the entire world is on opposite side.

No intercessor with Allah without His permission


Quran Chptr 10-18 (Pt-11, Stg-3) (L–1251)درس قرآن

No intercessor with Allah without His permission

Surah YUUNUS – 10 (JONAH)

BisMillaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim

In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

 

18.  And they worship beside Allah that which neither hurteth them nor profiteth them, and they say: These are our intercessors with Allah. Say: Would ye inform Allah of (something) that He knoweth not in the heavens or in the earth? Glory be to Him and He is High Exalted above all that ye associate (with Him)! 18.  Wa  ya’-buduuna  min-duu-Nillaahi  maa  laa yazzurruhum  wa  laa  yanfa-‘uhum  wa  yaquu-luuna  haaa-‘ulaaa-‘i   shufa-‘aaa-‘unaa  ‘indAllaah.  Qul  ‘atu-nabbi-’uunAllaaha  bimaa  laa  ya’-lamu  fis-samaa-waati  wa  laa fil-‘arz.  Subhaana-Huu  wa  Ta-‘aalaa  ‘ammaa  yush-rikuun.  

 

Lesson

 

Tu-nabbi-’uuna – (you inform), origin of this word is tan(m)-bi-‘atun, which has been derived from the word naba-‘un. Naba-‘un means “the news”. Tan(m)-bi-‘atun means “to inform”.

 

The unintelligent idolaters used to say the Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, blessings and peace be on Him) that He should change or amend the Holy Qur’aan, that in it, evil of the idols and their worship was described. Otherwise, they were very impressive from the advices of highest grade; mentioned in the Holy Qur’aan and its eloquence and fluency of Speech.

 

It is commanded: Behold those people! They worship such things which neither can hurt them and nor profit. If you prevent them from it; they say! Wow! They cause to provide us everything from Allah by means of intercession. If they do not exist; how can we get access to Allah?

 

God Almighty commands: Say to them! It is your self-invented matter, which is not according to actual circumstances, the entire universe of the heavens and the earth falsify your thought, because in fact; the Truth is that which is in the Knowledge of Allah Almighty. There is no one who may be His associate in His works and management. Everything is His creature and dependent upon His Commandment. None and nothing can command Him.

Disbelievers are senseless

Disbelievers are senseless

Surah YUUNUS – 10 (JONAH)

BisMillaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim

In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

 

16.  Say: If Allah had so willed I should not have recited it to you nor would He have made it known to you. I dwelt among you a whole lifetime before it (came to me). Have ye then no sense?

 

17.  Who doeth greater wrong than he who inventeth a lie concerning Allah and denieth His Revelations? Lo! The guilty never are successful.

16.  Qul-law  shaaa-‘Allaahu  maa  talaw-tuhuu  ‘alaykum  wa  laaa  ‘adraa-kum-  bih.  Faqad  la-bistu  fiikum  ‘umuram-min-  qab-lih.  ‘Afalaa  ta’-qiluun.

 

17.  Faman  ‘azlamu  mimma-niftaraa  ‘alAllaahi  kaziban  ‘aw  kazzaba  bi-‘Aayaa-tiH.  ‘Inna-huu  laa  yuflihul-mujri-muun.

 

Lesson

 

Talaw-tu – (I should not have recited it), it is past tense, which has been derived from the word tilaawatun. Tilaawatun means “to recite). Usually this word is used for the recitation of Holy Qur’aan.

 

‘Adraa – (to make something known, to inform, to warn, to show, to caution), it is also past tense from the word ‘idraa-‘un. Its origin is da-ra-ya, which has been derived from diraayatun. Diraayatun means “to understand, to know”. Its transitive is ‘Idraa-‘un which means “to cause to understand, to inform”.

 

Allah Almighty commands to His Prophet (SallAllaahu Alayhi Wa  Aalihii wassallam): You should say to the idolaters that “neither have I compiled it and nor can do so. It has been inspired in Me (SallAllaahu Alayhi Wa  Aalihii wassallam) by Allah Almighty. If He had not so willed He should neither have guided Me (SallAllaahu Alayhi Wa  Aalihii wassallam) to recite it before you and nor would He have made; about its contents; known to you.

 

You know it very well that I had been dwelling among you for forty years before Islam. And you are well aware of it also that neither any individual taught Me (SallAllaahu Alayhi Wa  Aalihii wassallam) writing and nor reading. How can it be possible that an uneducated and illiterate person writes suddenly such eloquent and elegant book? Think for a while. These Revelations have been revealed by Allah Almighty which you falsify. Therefore, it means that there is no any other bigger tyrant and guilty than you. The guilty person can never see the face of success.

Deserving severe torment on Doomsday

Deserving severe torment on Doomsday

Surah YUUNUS – 10 (JONAH)

BisMillaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim

In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

 

15b.  Say (O Muhammad): It is not for me to change it of my accord. I only follow that which is inspired in me. Lo! If I disobey my Lord I fear the retribution of an awful Day. 15b.  Qul  maa  ya-kuunu  liii  ‘an  ‘ubaddi-lahuu  min-  tilqaaa-‘i   nafsii.  ‘In  ‘attabi-‘u  ‘illaa  maa  yuu-haaa  ‘ilayy.  ‘Inniii  ‘akhaafu  ‘in  ‘a-saytu  Rabbii  ‘Azaaba  Yaw-min  ‘Aziim.

 

Lesson

 

It is commanded: Say to them {O Messenger (grace, blessings and peace be on Him)}! It is not my duty to amend or change the Revelations of Allah Almighty. Neither can I increase anything in it nor decrease; and nor am I able to change any word of the Holy Quran at My own. My work is only that I should perform according to that; whichever is inspired unto Me. If I shall disobey My Lord and turn away from His Commandment; I fear that, on the Day of Resurrection, which is a big Day of Strife, I shall deserve severe punishment. None can make ever any change or amendment in this Word.

 

Virtuous people cannot change it because they know Allah Almighty and they fear from His wrath always, whereas the evil doers cannot amend the Holy Qur’aan because Allah Almighty Himself is Protector of this glorious Word. There is no one in the world; who may change any word or verse of this Holy Book. As its words are protected, its meanings are also the same in accord with the Knowledge of Allah Almighty.

 

It means clearly that as Allah Almighty inspired the Holy Qur’aan unto His Last Messenger, Muhammad (grace, blessings and peace be on Him), it will remain as it is; until the stability of the world. And wise people, who will aware of its soul, will dwell according to its commandments as well as clear the way for others too.

 

Known from it is also that explaining the verses of Holy Qur’aan by means of false and self-made elucidations according to own predetermined opinion; is a transgression. It should be recited after emptying the mind from all kinds of reflections. Then it will be easy to understand its correct meanings.

Idolaters demanded to change the verses

Surah YUUNUS – 10 (JONAH)

BisMillaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim

In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

 

15a.  And when Our clear Revelations are recited unto them, they who look not for the meeting with Us say: Bring a Lecture (Qur,aan) other than this , or change it. 15a.  Wa  ‘izaa  tutlaa  ‘alayhim  ‘Aayaa-tuNaa  Bayyi-naatin,  qaalal-laziina  laa  yarjuuna  liqaaa-‘aNa’-ti  bi-Qur-‘aanin  gayri  haazaaa  ‘aw  bad-dilh.

Lesson

The people of the Arab used to recite the Name of Allah before Islam, but they did not have such conception; in their hearts; of God Almighty and about His Attributes, which was required to be. When Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, blessings and peace be on Him) said to them: Allah Almighty is not only Creator but He is Spiritual Guide too. After creating the mankind, He has not left him; as it is, but He sent Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon them) for his guidance from time to time along with His Scriptures. Therefore, now He (Allah) has sent Me (Muhammad – SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) for your and the entire human beings’ guidance; as a Messenger, and He revealed upon Me this Scripture, the name of which is (Holy) “Qur’aan”. So you should listen to it, understand it and obey its Commandments.

 

The inhabitants of Makkah were worshipers of idols. There terror was in the hearts of common people. When they heard about Allah Almighty, His Messenger (Muhammad – SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) and His Book (Holy Qur’aan), they were puzzled. After hearing; they felt that the advices mentioned in it were very good, but they did not understand that It was the Word of Allah Almighty, and the responsibility of His Last Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) was to convey it unto the entire people as it was, show them by acting upon its commandments by Himself and describe the people: Obey its commandments as I obey.

 

When those people heard badness of the idols and their worship, they began to say as a joke or due to ignorance; because they looked not for the meeting with Allah: Bring any such Qur’aan, in which; there is no vileness regarding the idols and their worship, otherwise; you should change such verses at your own.

 

Either they could not understand or did not wish to know that none can make any changing in the Holy Qur’aan. Its Commandments are Eternal and unchangeable. The only Duty of the Messenger (grace, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be on Him) is to cause to hear; and teach other people by acting upon it Himself.

Mankind is appointed as viceroy on the earth


Quran Chptr 10-13&14 (Pt-11, Stg-3) (L–1247)درس قرآن

Mankind is appointed as viceroy on the earth

Surah YUUNUS – 10 (JONAH)

BisMillaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim

In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

 

13.  We destroyed the generations before you when they did wrong; and their Messengers (from Allah) came unto them with clear proofs (of His Sovereignty) but they would not believe. Thus do We reward the guilty folk.

 

14.  Then We appointed you viceroys in the earth after them, that We might see how ye behave.

13.  Wa  laqad  ‘ahlaq-Nal-quruuna  min  qabli-kum  lammaa  zala-muu,  wa  jaaa-‘at-hum  Rusuluhum  bil- Bayyi-naati  wa  maa  kaanuu  li-yu’-minuu.  Kazaalika  Najzil-qawmal-mujrimiin.

 

14.  Summa  ja-‘alNaakum  khalaaa-‘ifa  fil-‘arzi  mim-ba’-di-him  linanzura  kayfa  ta’-maluun.   

 

Lesson

 

It is commanded that We have established this manner in the world that the disobedient people are loosened, and for causing to understand them about the Right Path, the Messengers (peace be upon Them) are appointed from them. When even then, they do not refrain from wicked deeds and their eyes are not opened, any heavenly misfortune is sent down on them and they are ruined.

 

According to the same established order, O the people of Arab: Listen to it and cause to hear the entire world that We destroyed many generations and folks before you, because they had gripped up their loins on tyrannizing and did not refrain from wickedness and immortality.

 

But it did not happen at once; moreover, at first; Our Messengers (peace be upon them) used to come unto them with Our Revelations and showed them clear proofs, so that they should know that really; they are Messengers of Allah Almighty. Then when notwithstanding, they did not believe and remained entangled in their inebriety, then Our wrath was sent down on them and they were ruined. It is custom with Us to punish the guilty people.

 

After their destruction, now We have peopled you on the earth. We shall observe; whether you adopt the rebellion also like them or straight way; go forth on the Right Path, for which Our Messenger (grace, blessings and peace of Allah on Him) has guided you.

The Real Benefactor is only One – Allah


Quran Chptr 10-12 (Pt-11, Stg-3) (L–1246)درس قرآن

The Real Benefactor is only One – Allah

Surah YUUNUS – 10 (JONAH)

BisMillaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim

In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

 

12.  And if misfortune touch a man he crieth unto Us, (while reclining) on his side, or sitting, or standing, but when We relieve him of the misfortune he goeth his way as though he had not cried unto Us because of a misfortune that afflicted him. Thus their deeds have been made fair-seeming to the prodigal. 12.  Wa  ‘izaa  massal-‘insaanaz-zurru  da-‘aaNaa  lijam-bihii  ‘aw  qaa-‘idan  ‘aw  qaaa-‘imaa.  Falammaa  kashafNaa  ‘anhu  zurrahuu  marra  ka-‘allam  yad-‘uNaaa  ‘ilaa  zurrim-massah.  Kazaalika  zuyyiNa  lil-musri-fiina  maa  kaanuu  ya’-maluun.   

 

Lesson

 

kashafNaa – (We remove, relieve), it is past tense from kashafa. Kashf means “to open, to manifest, to reveal, the performing of a miracle”. It aims “to relieve of any misfortune”.

 

Marra – it means “he went his way”. It is also past tense from the word marur. Marur means “passing, going own way, being engaged again in ordinary works, a passage, an avenue”.

 

‘Al-musri-fiina – (the prodigal, the fearless, the arrogant), it is tense of “the subject”, an adjective and plural of musrif, which means extravagant, prodigal, those who cross the lawful limits and self willed. This word has been derived from israf. Israf means “profusion, waste, squandering, extravagance, prodigality, abuse of wealth”. The word musrif is near to faasiq, which means wicked and immortal person.

 

It is commanded that the humankind does not be ready to believe in Allah Almighty during the days of prosperity, but when he suffers from any calamity and becomes helpless from all sides; then he cries unto Allah Almighty spontaneously in all conditions, whether he is sitting, standing or reclining on any side; and supplicates for His help.

 

Allah Almighty commands that when there is no helper and supporter in misfortune, then human being invokes his Lord. And then, when his Creator relieves him of the misfortune, he forgets that he had addressed God Almighty in prayer to remove the misfortune. And forgetting Him is considered by the mankind as an ordinary matter, and he does not understand it that his thankless behavior with The Real Benefactor will be cause of any bigger misfortune.
