Quran Chapter 10-107b (Pt-11, Stg-3) (L-1339) – درس قرآن
To be asker of God’s forgiveness
Surah Younus (Jonah) (peace be upon him)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
|107b. He bestows it on whom He will of His bondmen. And He is the Forgiving, the Merciful.||107b. Yusiibu bihii many-yashaaa-‘u min ‘ibaadiH. Wa Huwal-Gafuurur-Rahiim.|
Allah Almighty commands that when you have understood that Owner of profit and loss is none beside Him, then you should know also that profit and loss depends on the Will of Allah Almighty. Sometimes His philosophy demands that any particular man should be hurt or pain should be given to him, and sometimes His philosophy is that so and so should be profited and comfort should be provided to him. His decision depends on His intention and will. None can interfere in this matter.
Mankind should be ready every time to obey every command of Allah Almighty and sacrifice his life and wealth. And he should neither worship any other beside Allah Almighty and nor consider that someone else can profit or hurt save Allah Almighty. Sinner should produce own mistakes and errors before Him which he committed at times due to weakness and ignorance; and ask Him for forgiveness, because some times his errors become cause of misfortunes. If he prays from Allah Almighty for forgiveness of the sins, many of the catastrophes are withdrawn by His Bounty.
Allah Almighty has caused to understand in this verse by saying Himself “the Forgiving, the Merciful” that all profits and losses are in His Power. But mostly, apparent reason of harm is mankind’s infirmity and forgetfulness, and cause of benefit is mankind’s submission and humility before Allah Almighty and acting upon His Instructions. Treatment of weakness and oblivion is “calling Allah Almighty for His forgiveness, worshipping Him and asking Him for help”.
If a human being acts upon the Guidance of Allah Almighty; he deserves His Mercy. Therefore, the end of these verses is on God’s “the Forgiving, the Merciful”, so that it may be indicated, by Alone Owner of profit and harm, towards those apparent reasons which become origin of profit and loss, so that the mankind should seek causes of profit and escape from the reasons of harm, and remain asker of His forgiveness every time.
