Quran Chapter 17 – 96 & 97a (Pt-15, Stg-4) (L-1844) درس قرآن
Allah is Aware of His slaves’ entire circumstances
Surah Baniii ‘Israaa-‘iil (The Children of Israel) – 17
‘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)
قُلْ كَفَىٰ بِٱللَّهِشَهِيدًۢا بَيْنِى وَبَيْنَكُمْ إِنَّهُۥ كَانَ بِعِبَادِهِۦ خَبِيرًۢا بَصِيرًا 96
وَمَن يَهْدِ ٱللَّهُ فَهُوَ ٱلْمُهْتَدِ وَمَن يُضْلِلْ فَلَن تَجِدَ لَهُمْ أَوْلِيَآءَ مِن دُونِهِۦ وَنَحْشُرُهُمْيَوْمَ ٱلْقِيَٰمَةِ عَلَىٰ وُجُوهِهِمْ عُمْيًا وَبُكْمًا وَصُمًّا مَّأْوَىٰهُمْ جَهَنَّمُ كُلَّمَا خَبَتْ زِدْنَٰهُمْ سَعِيرًا 97
|96. Say: Allah suffeceth for a witness between me and you. Lo! He is Knower, Seer of His slaves.
97a. And he whom Allah guideth, he is led aright; while, as for him whom He sendeth astray, for them thou wilt find no protecting friends beside Him.
|96. Qul kafaa Billaahi shahiidam-baynii wa baynakum. ‘InnaHuu kaana bi-‘ibaadiHii Khabiiram-Basiiraa.
97a. Wa many-yahDillaahu fa-huwal-muhtad. Wa many-Yuz-lil- falan tajida lahum ‘awli-yaaa-‘a min duniH.
It is commanded to the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) that he should say: Allah Almighty Himself is A Witness upon it that I am His Messenger. Do you not hear Holy Qur’an? Can it be the Word of any mankind? No! There is no one in the world who may prepare the word like This. Then what did happen with your sense? Do you not understand it that He is Aware of the entire circumstances of His slaves? He knows that what any mankind do. I claim that I am His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) and He does not prevent Me from this claim while He knows everything. Not only He does not prevent Me but He bestows His Word (in the form of Holy Qur’an) unto Me. And He says in It clearly that I am Messenger of God Almighty. Even then, if you do not come unto the Right Path then it is “evil days” for you due to which He Has deprived you of the Guidance although you have sense. Guidance is in His Hand. The person, who does not use his sense but follows own wishes being involved into them, who does not meditate in the commands mentioned in Holy Qur’an but mocks, Allah Almighty does not guide such people, because He has settled the Holy Qur’an; means of Guidance and manifested it clearly through His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). But you should remember it that there is no protecting friend of the person; to whom He sends astray due to his evil days. He is Merciful for those who choose the Right Path.
