Incidental dangers in the world
Surah YUUNUS – 10 (JONAH)
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
You have recited previous verses. Their contents are being reproduced (linked together) once again; so that something new may be understood by meditating into them.
Outward splendor and adornment of the world attracts the heart of the human being and he forgets his Lord being fascinated in it. Until the life runs through rest and relaxation, he does never remember Allah Almighty in any condition. However, when he is entangled in any severe disaster, when he feels that the death is before him and there is no helper, then he cries out to Allah Almighty.
But as soon as the disaster is removed, he forgets Allah Almighty again. O Mankind! The worst consequence of these stupidities will be on your own head. Reality of this world, of which you are so much and deeply in love, is it that, it is beauty for a while. In addition, there are incidental dangers in it also. You would have observed that a short while ago, the crops were standing luxuriant, then suddenly it was hailing or a large army of locusts attacked and incessantly, everything was ruined. And those who were hopeful of prosperity, began to repress their grief. They inherited nothing but fear and despair.
Allah Almighty has been calling you unto such Home, where there is neither any disaster, nor any hindrance in fulfilling your wishes. If any of you accepts Invitation of Allah Almighty, should come ahead and beg before Him that he admits. If his application is approved, then he will be guided unto the Straight Path, provided that, he obeyed the Commandments of God Almighty and followed His Last Messenger (grace, blessings and peace be on Him) in all deeds, and he should never disobey Them.
In short, the Heaven for the obedient and the Hell for the disobedient is ready. It can be known by meditating that quite correct map of the world has been drawn in these verses and connection of the human being with it has been manifested completely.
Misunderstanding regarding relationship of the humankind with the world has caused to arrive the human being at the edge of collapse. Nuclear weapons are ready. With such misunderstanding, a little error or misapprehension is still incomplete. If any individual erred in the intoxication of vain pride; the Raft would be drowned without delay.
This verse has been teaching us that the decoration of the world is apparent only, otherwise; its every moment has been filled with countless disasters. If Allah Almighty does not preserve it every moment, the disaster would break in upon it instantly and this entire management may be disorganized. God Almighty will guard this universe until those people will be living in it; who accept the Invitation of Allah Almighty.
It is obvious that opportunity of their acceptance will remain. If (God forbid), from the mankind, none such person remains living in the entire world, who is attentive on the Invitation of Allah Almighty, and all people begin to consider that the life of this world only is everything, then Allah Almighty will discontinue preserving this world. He will make a signal to any disaster and finally the Drum of Destruction will be beaten.
