Handcuffs of worldly comfort
Surah Ra-‘d (The Thunder) – 13
‘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.)
وَإِن تَعْجَبْ فَعَجَبٌ قَوْلُهُمْ أَءِذَا كُنَّا تُرَٰبًا أَءِنَّا لَفِى خَلْقٍ جَدِيدٍ أُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ بِرَبِّهِمْ وَأُو۟لَٰٓئِكَٱلْأَغْلَٰلُ فِىٓ أَعْنَاقِهِمْ وَأُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ أَصْحَٰبُ ٱلنَّارِ هُمْ فِيهَا خَٰلِدُونَ 5
|5b. Such are they who disbelieve in their Lord; and such have carcans on their necks, and such are rightful owners of the Fire, they will abide therein for ever.||5b. ‘Ulaaa-‘ikallaziina ka-faruu bi-Rabbihim. Wa ‘ulaaa-‘ikal-‘aglaalu fiii ‘a’-naaqi-him. Wa ‘ulaaa-‘ika ‘As-haabun-Naar. Hum fiihaa khaali-duun.|
Those people who see the amazing manufacturing of the world; but do not know Him Who established it; their sense has gone astray and is bondage in a narrow circle. Two windows of that jail i.e. eye and ear open only towards that direction, towards which; there are relishes and lusts of the world. In a corner of that prison, there is a specified door, from which, a path leads to Glacious Spirit. Their sense does not march toward that side, because they have carcans of wishes on their necks, handcuffs of worldly comfort on their hands and fetters of lustful desires on their feet. While it is the condition of their sense in the world, then certainly they will be produced before Allah Almighty as Infidels on the Day of Resurrection. The same carcans, hand-cuffs and fetters (made of iron) will be put on their necks, hands and feet respectively. And then it will be commanded: Drive them unto the Hell in the same condition. Tightened in these hindrances, they will be burnt for ever.
