LESSON # 381 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
Other Than Surrender To Allah
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter - 3)
Verse – 85 of 200, Section –9 (Part – 3)
And whoso seeketh as religion other than the Surrender (to Allah) it will not be accepted from him, and he will be a loser in the Hereafter.
Wa many-yabtagi gayral-‘Islaami Diinan- falany-yaqbala minh. Wa huwa fil-‘Aakhirati minal-khaasiriin.
It has been described in this verse that if someone seeks any other religion except Islam, that will not be accepted by Allah Almighty. He will be punished in this world for his such attempt as well as he will be a loser in the Hereafter.
It is the fact that while the religion (Islam) has been revealed in its full form, then no liar, self-made or incomplete religion can be accepted. If after rising the sun, someone kindles a lamp or searches the light of the stars, then it would be stupidity only.
This same likeness is accurate about the religion. Now the time of any local religion, creed relating to breed and limited guidance has passed. Above all each person should get light only from the last and conqueror of the world Messenger-hood and guidance, because it is the treasury of the entire illuminations, in which all the previous lights have been inserted.
The aim from it is to reprimand the children of Israel, “Don’t seek as religion other than Islam. Moreover, get protection in its embrace. You are bearer of which religion or you claim about which Scripture as yours, their principles and formulas are exactly according to Islam and the Islam has a little superiority upon them”. The appearance of the Jewish and Christianity religions was local. These religions were sent only for a particular nation and time to be adopted.
Islam is a conqueror of the world, perfect and collective religion. It comprehends upon all fields of life. Therefore, if you wish to become faithful to your religion, then embrace Islam. You will get salvation and respect because of it. If you will remain standing opposite notwithstanding its comprehension, and seek any other religion except Islam, then surely it will be false, misled and self-made. Therefore, it will never be accepted. In addition, those people will get severe punishment of their infidelity and denial. They will find themselves between the losers on the Day of Resurrection.
This world is just like an examination hall and the result of its deeds will be given in the Hereafter. The person who will sow the seeds of good acts with digging and labor in this world, he will get pleasure and comfort on the Day of Judgment, and who remained earning the worldly wealth and property due to his perverseness and spite, he will get there obdurate loss.
Therefore, we should not remain imprudent; we should adopt the path of goodness becoming farsighted. Otherwise, it is much difficult to escape from the loss of Hereafter. Farsighted is he who tries for his better end, specifically such end which is of a permanent nature, neither that is temporary nor for the time being.
