Quran Chapter 14  Intro (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1607) - درس قرآن


Contents of Surah ‘Ibahiim

Surah ‘Ibraahiim (Abraham) - 14

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)
 

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

By sequence, this is 14th Chapter of Holy Qur’aan. In it, there is mention of Prophet Abraham (peace be upon him) who brought his wife and son Ishmael (peace be upon them) to Makkah Valley and settled them there including those supplications, which Abraham (peace be upon him) prayed at that time. This Chapter was also revealed at Makkah when the time of departure (Hijrah) from Makkah to Madinah was close i.e. before 15 July 1622. Its contents are nearly the same as of other Makkan Chapters. It contains seven Sections.

In the beginning, purpose of descending the Holy Qur’aan has been caused to understand. And the people who leave the high road of its guidance, they have been frightened from the torment of Allah Almighty and caused to know them that “this series of guidance has been established with effect from the old times, and many Messengers (peace be upon them) had been coming in this world to keep it established”. The nations which did not obey Prophets (peace be upon them), their end was very bad. Keeping their dreadful end in view, you should obey the Sayings of the last Prophet, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him); who has been sent in the world between you. It is beneficial for you. Empire of Allah Almighty is not so much weak that if you will be obedient then it will stand firm, otherwise it will be disrupted.

Then it has been explained that the Devil pursues the mankind closely in spite of everything. He misleads the people in different ways. But when human beings are entangled in His seduction, then He blames them and runs away. You should be careful from His trickery and obey Him never whether He shows you abundant (deceitful) green gardens. This world is such a place where if you are really servants of Allah Almighty, you can get ease and comfort of the Doomsday, otherwise after death, all in vain.

Know Allah Almighty. Do not ascribe any partner with Him. Behold! There was a chosen Servant of Allah Almighty named “Abraham (peace be upon him)”. He left alone His Wife and an infant in a jungle wilderness by the Command of Allah Almighty and did not think about any other’s saying. However, He (peace be upon him) prayed for them and begged for their better future.

You should never consider that Allah Almighty is careless from your wicked deeds of tricks. He has been looking everything. The Day of Resurrection will be very terrible. On that Day, every mankind would have to be reckoned of own deeds.

What is better for satisfaction of the hearts - Quran Chapter 13 – 43 (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1606) - درس قرآن


Quran Chapter 13  43 (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1606) - درس قرآن


What is better for satisfaction of the hearts

Surah Ra-‘d (The Thunder) - 13

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)
 

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

Lessons from Surah Ra-’d (The Thunder) (Chapter 13) ended on previous lesson. Let’s review its subjects again. May be that our luck awake up and by its correct and pure commandments, Faith in Realities succeed in taking place in our hearts, which have been mentioned in this Chapter.

It is the Teaching of Islam that the mankind should not be entangled in the works of the world only as much that he does not see above from it. It is duty of his sense that by looking the things artificially made; he should know The Artificer (The Creator) and bow before Him. For showing Straight Path to the sense, he should consider that Holy Qur’aan provides complete Guidance, which has been sent unto the Messenger of Allah Almighty; Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) for the purpose that He should draw attention of the mankind unto perfect and higher value things, by putting them out from the difficulties of dropped down things. He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) should convey the Message of Allah Almighty and by acting upon Qur’aanic Commandments, establish a model role of life for them.

Holy Qur’aan commands the human beings that they should meditate in the make of skies, stars, sun and moon, and take from it the first result that “there is none from the creatures who may create these things. Certainly their Creator is an Omnipotent, Who has established this entire universe.

Condition of the world is that where there is goodness; there is evil also. But you should remember it that at the end, the goodness is of use, whereas the evil fails and who supported it; missed too along with it. Those who obey the commandments of Allah Almighty are good people. Their end will also be good. They believe in Him, keep their relationship with other people correct and fulfill their promises. They fear Allah’s wrath and are frightened of deeds’ reckoning. They offer prayers regularly and spend their wealth on good works. Against these all good works they will be rightful owners of the Garden.

Whereas the people who go opposite to the above, they will burn in the Hell continuously without dying. Ease and comfort of this world is nothing. It will be finished very soon. But the Futurity (after life) shall be for ever. In the world, satisfaction of heart is hidden in the Remembrance of Allah Almighty. Know your Creator and His Attributes. Whosoever became of Him, would be in rest and peace – in this world; as well as on the Day of Resurrection.

The knowledge of the Book

Surah Ra-‘d (The Thunder) - 13

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

وَيَقُولُ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ لَسْتَ مُرْسَلًا قُلْ كَفَىٰ بِٱللَّهِ شَهِيدًۢا بَيْنِى وَبَيْنَكُمْ وَمَنْ عِندَهُۥ عِلْمُ ٱلْكِتَٰبِ 43

43.  And they who disbelieve say: Thou art no messenger (of Allah). Say: Allah is Sufficient Witness between me and you and also (are sufficient witnesses) those who possess the knowledge of Book.
43.  Wa  ya-quu-lullaziina  kafa-ruu  lasta  mur-salaa.  Qul  Kafaa  Billaahi  Shahiidam-  bay-nii  wa  bay-nakum,  wa  man  ‘inda-Huu  ‘ilmul-Kitaab.
(Section – 6)
   
Commentary

It was commanded in the beginning of this Chapter that Our Messenger Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) has been reciting which verses before the people, those verses are of the Book, which Allah Almighty has revealed upon Him. Whatsoever has been described in this Book (Holy Qur’aan), that is entirely true. But some people deny ignorantly of this Book and they say to the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) fearlessly: It is not sent by Allah Almighty.

In this verse, it has been commanded to the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) that He should say to the people: Allah Almighty is a Witness that I am His Rightful Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) and this Qur’aan is His Word. Recite this Book and understand it. Every verse of this Word contains that sound, by which, Allah Almighty has been giving evidence Himself that Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) and He (God Almighty) are True.

Then those people who understand after hearing it and meditating, they begin to give evidence inconsiderately about the Uprightness and Truth of the both {Allah Almighty and His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him)}. The one who possess the knowledge about this Book, surely he will be witness of its truth.

Like this, the people who have knowledge of the Scriptures before This Book (Holy Qur’aan) and the strip of bigotry has not been tied on their eyes, they begin to say unhesitatingly: Yes! Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) is that last Messenger, the news of whom was mentioned in the old Scriptures.

The Sequel of the Heavenly Home - Quran Chapter 13 – 42 (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1604) - درس قرآن


Quran Chapter 13  42 (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1604) - درس قرآن

 

The Sequel of the Heavenly Home

Surah Ra-‘d (The Thunder) - 13

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)
 

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

وَقَدْ مَكَرَ ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ فَلِلَّهِ ٱلْمَكْرُ جَمِيعًايَعْلَمُ مَا تَكْسِبُ كُلُّ نَفْسٍ وَسَيَعْلَمُ ٱلْكُفَّٰرُ لِمَنْ عُقْبَى ٱلدَّارِ 42

42.  And those who were before them plotted; but all plotting is Allah’s. He knoweth that which each soul earneth. The disbelievers will come to know for whom will be the sequel of the (heavenly) Home.  
42.  Wa  qad  makaral-laziina  min  qab-lihim  fa-Lillaahil-makru  jamii-‘aa.  Ya’-lamu  maa  taksibu  kullu  nafs.  Wa  sa-ya’-lamul-kuffaaru  liman  ‘Uqbad-Daar.      
   
Commentary

It is commanded that many people before these; have passed in the past. These are not the first generation who has settled here. You should think for awhile, where have they gone? They arranged for their security as much as possible by using their power and sense; and then satisfied being proud that “now we are safe, we shall suffer no injury”.

According to their knowledge, they had completed their plotting for achieving their aims, but they were careless from the plotting of Allah Almighty, whereas all plotting is of Him only. They inherited nothing because they denied Allah Almighty. And their entire arrangements had been useless.

At last, that happened which Allah Almighty willed and those people reached the recompense for their evil done. You should understand it carefully that Allah Almighty is well Aware of every individual’s good or evil deeds and He will punish the evil doers in accordance with His prescribed Rule. And He will give good reward to those who are good and believers.

At this time, these people are in unconscious sleep, but after some period, they will know that who did succeed in the Hereafter and who failed. God bless all.

Life after death - Quran Chapter 13 – 41b (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1603) - درس قرآن


Quran Chapter 13  41b (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1603) - درس قرآن

 

Life after death

Surah Ra-‘d (The Thunder) - 13

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)
 

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

أَوَلَمْ يَرَوْا۟ أَنَّا نَأْتِىٱلْأَرْضَ نَنقُصُهَا مِنْ أَطْرَافِهَا وَٱللَّهُ يَحْكُمُ لَا مُعَقِّبَ لِحُكْمِهِۦ وَهُوَ سَرِيعُ ٱلْحِسَابِ 41

41b.  (When) Allah doometh there is none that can postpone His doom. And He is Swift at reckoning.
41b.  Wallaahu  yah-kumu  laa  mu-‘aqqiba  li-HukmiH.  Wa  Huwa  Sarii-‘ul-hisaab.      
   
Commentary

Mu-‘aqqiba – (the person who may postpone), it is the subject from the word ta’-qiib. This subject has already passed in this Chapter. Here it means “to postpone”.

In previous verses, there was description about planning and management by Allah Almighty. He sent His Messengers (peace be upon them) for the guidance of the mankind even before Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings an peace be upon him).

It is duty of every Messenger (peace be upon him) that He should obey every commandment of God Almighty which is revealed unto Him, and which commandments have been inspired for other people, those should be conveyed to them. Next, the matter is among the people and Allah Almighty only. He will reckon their deeds and decide that whether their deeds are in accordance with those commandments which He sent care of His Messenger (peace be upon him) or otherwise?

In this verse, it has been caused to understand the mankind clearly that which incidents have been occurring, last judgment is of Allah Almighty about them. If all requisites are provided for any occurrence, even then it’s happening or otherwise depends on the decision of Allah Almighty. Mankind’s decisions can be postponed, but the decisions of Allah Almighty cannot be postponed. He has fixed this law that deeds of every mankind shall be reckoned essentially, and for the last reckoning, He has determined the Day of Resurrection. It is His doom, for which, there is none, who may postpone it. If reward or punishment of any good or evil deed is delayed, one should not consider that his pursuit has been discarded. Delay is of the time. When it will come then, in a second, the reckoning will begin. When the Time (the Doomsday) will come, then Allah Almighty will not delay in reckoning.

Good remuneration for those who fear God - Quran Chapter 13 – 40 & 41a (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1602) - درس قرآن


Quran Chapter 13  40 & 41a (Pt-13, Stg-3) (L-1602) - درس قرآن

 

Good remuneration for those who fear God

Surah Ra-‘d (The Thunder) - 13

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)
 

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

وَإِن مَّا نُرِيَنَّكَ بَعْضَ ٱلَّذِى نَعِدُهُمْ أَوْ نَتَوَفَّيَنَّكَ فَإِنَّمَا عَلَيْكَ ٱلْبَلَٰغُ وَعَلَيْنَا ٱلْحِسَابُ 40

أَوَلَمْ يَرَوْا۟ أَنَّا نَأْتِىٱلْأَرْضَ نَنقُصُهَا مِنْ أَطْرَافِهَا وَٱللَّهُ يَحْكُمُ لَا مُعَقِّبَ لِحُكْمِهِۦ وَهُوَ سَرِيعُ ٱلْحِسَابِ 41

40.  Whether We let thee see something of that which We have promised them, or make thee die (before its happening), thine is but conveyance (of the message). And Ours the reckoning.

41a.  See they not how We visit the land, reducing it of its outlying parts?
40.  Wa  ‘immaa  Nuri-yannaka  ba’-zallazii  Na-‘iduhum  ‘aw  Natawaffa-yannaka  fa-‘inna-maa  ‘alay-kal-  balaagu  wa  ‘alay-nal-hisaab.

41a.  ‘A-wa  lam  ya-raw  ‘Annaa  na’-til-‘arza  nan-qusuhaa  min  ‘atraa-fihaa.      
   
Commentary

Natawaffa-yanna – {We make (thee) die}, origin of this word is tawaffii and its single is wafaat. This word has passed in Surah ‘Aal- ‘Imraan. It means “to finish”. Wafaat means “death, decease, demise”.

Nan-qusu – (We reduce), origin of this word is naqsun. Naqsun means “to reduce, to diminish, to lessen”. From it; there is a word nuqsaan, which means “loss, defect, harm etc.”

Allah Almighty commands in this verse to His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him): We have promised them that obedient people will be rewarded with good remuneration but those who are disobedient, will be punished properly. If We show them something from which We have promised during Your existence among them or after your death, even then, the reality will not be changed and it will be as it is now. It is fact that it is not duty of any Prophet/Messenger (peace be upon him) that he should fulfill their uncommon demands, but he (peace be upon him) should convey the Message of Allah Almighty. Therefore, the same duty is of You also that You should recite the Message (Word) of God Almighty before them and show them practically by acting upon His Commandments, whether any person admits or denies. It is Our responsibility to fulfill the promises and punish the wicked doers. We shall do when We shall will. Neither You (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) should be thoughtful for it and nor they should be careless. This portent is sufficient for thinking that We visit the land, reducing it of its outlying parts for them. Islam has been spreading all around and infidelity has been abating.

39.  Allah effecteth what He will, and establisheth (what He will), and with Him is the Source of Ordinance.             
39.  Yam-hUllaahu  maa  ya-shaaa-‘u  wa yusbitu  wa  ‘inda-Huuu  ‘Ummul-Kitaab.      
   
Commentary

It was described in the previous verse that during every era, Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon them) came in the world and They guided the human beings to keep their footings unto the Straight Path in their lives. Then for the next era, another Scripture was prepared; in which some commandments were changed and established.

It is commanded in this verse that Allah Almighty abrogates the commandments of first era which He wills to change in the next era, and which He desires; keeps them established. However, the Source of Ordinance, the Actual Book exists with Him, commandments of which are never changed. This Source of Ordinance is called Lauhul-Mahfuuz (A Table on which the destinies of the world since its creation are written), object of which is such Rules and Regulations which are never changed. But for their particulars, the Books of every era are separate. Moreover, even for every individual, there is a separate Book; in which his/her deeds and acts are recorded.

In those special Books, some such things which are subject to existing causes for the time being; are recorded. Then after the creation of new reasons, those are removed, and new commands and forms are entered. But this all is done entirely according to those permanent Rules, which have already been recorded in the Source of Ordinance, i.e. LAUH MAHFOOZ: The tablet that is protected from any alterations.

Difference of forms is due to causes, but this difference cannot go out of the actual Rules and Regulations. Those Generic Principles are called “Taqdiir Mubram” (Inevitable Destiny). And their particulars which change from time to time in accord with the situation and occasion, are called “Taqdiir mu’allaq” (Pendulous Destiny). The name of Inevitable Destiny is “Qadr” (Dignity) and the name of Pendulous Destiny is “Qazaa” also (Fate).
