Lesson # 1158 from Holy Qur-’aan
Wish of wandering like beasts of prey
Surah ‘TAWBAH or BARAAA-‘AH (REPENTANCE) – Chapter – 9)
Stage – 2, Verse –125 of 129, Section – 16 of 16 (Part – 11)
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
|125. And as for those in whose hearts there is disease, it only addeth uncleanness to their (former) uncleanness, and they die while they are disbelievers.||125. Wa ‘ammal-laziina fii quluu-bihim-marazun- fazaa-dat-hum rijsan ‘ilaa rijsihim wa maatuu wa hum kaafiruun.|
But the disease of uncleanness has been frozen in whose hearts; they can see nothing in these Surahs (Chapters). Even their disease has been increase more than earlier because they observe that belief and firmness of the Believers have been increasing and before the strength of their (Believers’) intentions, their own intentions have been reducing day by day and their internal health has been decreasing. Therefore due to this reason, their jealousy, malice and hatred have been increasing at every moment, and these are such spiritual diseases, the only cure of which is, Belief in the prescribed Laws of Allah Almighty and obedience of His Messenger’s (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) Sayings. As much faith and trust in Allah Almighty, His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) and His Law (Holy Qur’aan) will be acquired, so much hidden wickedness of the human being will decrease. The name of this depravity is spiritual disease. So which new Surah (Chapter) is revealed, that is; cause of satisfaction for the Muslims, and the same Chapter enhances anger and enmity of the Hypocrites, as good land becomes fertile with rain, whereas waste land produces thorny bushes and shrubs instead of fruitful crops.
A map of two kinds of humankind has been drawn in these verses. Two main parties of human beings are seen conspicuous in every era. One party is that which accepts the good and considers that abiding by the law and order; is necessary for the human being. The other party is that which considers that adhering to the Law is a misfortune, and they take the meanings of freedom as “the mankind should wander like beasts of prey”.
Some of them oppose the Law openly. They are Infidels. And some, although they show themselves noble, but secretly they are wicked. So they are Hypocrites. On the first party, influence of good words is curative, and for the other party, the same words are flogging on their evil deeds.
