Man’s rebellion is against himself
Surah YUUNUS - 10 (JONAH)
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
23. Then when He hath delivered them, behold! They rebel in the earth wrongfully. O mankind! Your rebellion is only against yourselves; (ye have) enjoyment of the life of the world, then unto Us is your return and We shall proclaim unto you what ye used to do.
23. Falammaaa ‘anjaahum ‘izaa hum yab-guuna fil-‘arzi bi-gayril-haqq. Yaaa-‘ayyu-hannaasu ‘innamaa bag-yu-kum ‘alaaa ‘anfu-sikum- ma-taa-‘al-Hayaa-tid-dunyaa summa ‘ilay-Naa marji-‘ukum fa-Nu-nabbi-‘ukum- bimaa kuntum ta’-lamuun.
Allah Almighty commands that when We delivered them from that misfortune with Our Mercy and Kindness, then what did they do? Their all those supplications, prayers and humble petitions, which they asked earnestly by their tongues and which had come out from their hearts, were disordered. They began to commit the same evils, wickedness, tyrannies, plundering and ravaging again.
After that, it is commanded: O people! You will be punished properly due to your mischief, wickedness, villainy and evils. You can never hurt Us. If you reaped some worldly benefits by tyrannizing, those will be only for a few days. At last you have to die and be present before Allah Almighty. Your entire evil designs will be opened there.
It has been mentioned in the Books of Qur’aan’s Explanations (Tafaasiir) that after the Conquest of Makkah, Ikramah son of Abu Jahal left Makkah and ran away in a boat. Suddenly, after some time, the boat was entangled in a very heavy storm. The sea-man of the boat said: Attention! Crying out with the name of any idol will not be useful here. Call aloud one Allah only. He is Who will deliver us from this disaster. Ikramah minded: Muhammad (grace, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be on Him) says the same also, and then he inclined unto Allah Almighty. Allah Almighty guided him unto the Straight Path, he returned and embraced Islam.
