LESSON # 302 FROM HOLY QUR’AN

Direction And Going Astray
BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)
Verse –256b & 257 of  286, Section –34 (Part - 3)

256b. And he who rejecteth false deities and believeth in Allah hath grasped a firm handhold which will never break. And Allah is Hearer, Knower.

257.  Allah is the Protecting Guardian of those who believe. He bringeth them out of darkness into light. And for those who disbelieve, their patrons are false deities; they bring them out of light into darkness. Such are rightful owners of the Fire. They will abide therein for ever.                   
256b.  Famany-yakfur  bit-Taaguuti  wa  yu’-mim-billaahi  faqadis-tamsaka  bil- ‘urwatil-wusqaa, lan-fisaa-ma  lahaa.  Wallaahu  Samii-‘un  Aliim.

257.  ‘Allaahu  Wa-liy- yullaziina  ‘aamanuu,  yukhrijuhum-minaz-zulumaati  ‘ilan-Nuur.  Wal-laziina  kafaruu  ‘aw-liyaaa- ‘u-humut-  Taaguutu,  yukhrijuuna- hum- minan-Nuuri  ‘ilaz-zulumaat.  ‘Ulaaa-‘ika  ‘As-haabun-Naar.  Hum  fiihaa  khaaliduun.    



Lesson

‘At-  Taaguutu – (false deities, misleading, refractory, rebellious). Its substance is tagii. Taa-gii and tug-yaan have also derived from it. ‘At-  Taaguutu means that life who has discretion, is personally astray too and be the cause to lead other persons astray. 

Wa-liy- yun – (the Protecting Guardian, friend, supporter). Plural of it is ‘aw-liyaaa’. This word has been used in the meanings of companion, patron, guardian and friend.

‘Az-zulumaati – (darkness), singular of this word is zul-mat. Light and brightness may be of one kind, but the darkness has many kinds. Here it aims the darkness of infidelity, ascribing plurality to Allah, faithlessness and going astray.

God Almighty commanded in clear words, “Who will believe, as though; he will reach into light. Allah Almighty will be his Protecting Guardian and Supporter. Who will disbelieve and choose path of refractory persons, as if, he will drown in the darkness. Misled and rebellious persons will be his companions and the Hell will be his abode for ever”.
