Quran Chapter 10-102 & 103 (Pt-11, Stg-3)(L-1331) –درس قرآن
Faith; before arrival of God’s wrath; is useful
Surah YUUNUS – 10 (JONAH)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Stories of the people; belonging to former times have not been described in Holy Qur’aan; for rejoicing or historical sciences. The only aim of their description is that the mankind should draw out from them useful results for himself, and which errors they committed, he should escape from them. Holy Qur’aan teaches the human being; method of dwelling in the world; in such a way that; he may gain ease and comfort, not only in the worldly life but also in the life which will begin after death. When it desires to explain about the principles of any particular point of view of such life, then for this purpose, behavior of any of the ancient nations, which; that nation had adopted concerning such particular aspect, is represented by verses.
For example, let’s go through the Chapter, which is running, in it; it has been caused to understand the human being that: Believing in Allah Almighty, having trust in Him, following the instructions and commands mentioned in His Scripture i.e. Holy Qur’aan, and understanding its Revelations through Deeds and Sayings of His last Messenger (grace, glory, blessing and peace be upon Him), are necessary for success of human life in both worlds. If any individual opposes the above and does not believe, discovers a new way of life according to own will, then its result will be bad.
For impressing this matter well on the mind, circumstances of Prophet Noah (peace be upon Him) and His folk has been described. After that, generally it has been narrated that the folks; after the folk of Noah (peace be upon Him) were also disobedient of their Prophets (peace be upon them) as the folk of Noah (peace be upon Him), and they were seized in the torment due to their disobedience.
Then circumstances of Prophets Moses and Aaron (peace be upon them) have been narrated. Pharaoh did not accept Moses and Aaron (peace be upon them), so the Children of Israel were saved but Pharaoh was drowned along with his Army. Understandable matter in it; is that the people should believe in Messenger (peace be upon Him) and Revelations mentioned in Divine Scripture, before arrival of God’s wrath, because aim of it is to dress own life. If the time of life is over then Belief is useless and it has no consequence. For causing to know this point, difference of Pharaoh’s Belief and the Belief of the folk of Jonah (peace be upon him) has been explained, from which; one’s Belief was useless, whereas others’ was useful.
