Treasures of worldly wealth will be useless
Surah Huud (Hud) – 11
‘A-‘uu-zu Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)
(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)
فَلَا تَكُ فِى مِرْيَةٍ مِّمَّا يَعْبُدُ هَٰٓؤُلَآءِ مَا يَعْبُدُونَ إِلَّا كَمَا يَعْبُدُءَابَآؤُهُم مِّن قَبْلُ وَإِنَّا لَمُوَفُّوهُمْ نَصِيبَهُمْ غَيْرَ مَنقُوصٍ (109
|109. So be not thou in doubt concerning that which these (folk) worship. They worship only as their fathers worshipped aforetime. And lo! We shall pay them their whole due unabated.||109. Falaa taku fii mir-yatim-mim-maa ya’-budu haaa-‘u-laaa’. Maa ya’-buduuna ‘illaa kamaa ya’-budu ‘aabaaa-‘u-hum-min- qabl. Wa ‘innaa lamu-waffuu-hum nasii-bahum gayra manquus.
Manquus (abated), it is Passive Participle from the word naq-sun, which means “to abate, to decrease, to lessen”. Word nuq-saan has been derived from the same origin, which means “loss”.
Maximum people in the world are taken in by observing that disbelievers, idol-worshippers and the worshippers of their own desires are rich and prosperous. They think that “perhaps the act of worshipping the idols is correct, because we see that their worshippers (idolaters) have been enjoying their lives in the world fearlessly. They have collected treasures of the wealth which have been increasing day by day. And along with it, they have been becoming more rebellious.
In this verse, Allah Almighty has addressed to His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him); but His object is to cause to understand the Muslims that they should not be deceived of looking the idolaters wealthy and prosperous, and they should not draw as a conclusion from it that either idol worshipping is a good thing or there is no harm in contradiction of Allah Almighty.
The actual matter is that prosperity has not been bestowed to them by the idols. Worshipping idols has been set up into them in the form of a custom and it has been coming into them since the times of their forefathers.
Prosperity was given to them by Us (Allah Almighty). We wish to test them that whether they are thankful to their Lord or otherwise? Whether they know Him Who gives wealth and property or not? On the Day of Resurrection, entire wealth will be proved as useless. Idolaters and those will be punished properly who denied their Creator, Allah Almighty.
