Qur’aan is neither an old book nor fables of old men

Lesson # 699 From Holy Qur’aan

Qur’aan is neither an old book nor fables of old men

Surah ‘Al-‘An-‘aam (Cattle) – Chapter – 6)–Stage - 2

Verses – 25 & 26 of 165, Section – 3 of 20 (Part - 7)

BisMIllaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim

In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

                                                                                     
                                          
Lesson - 3

Such people have born among the Muslims in abundance now a day, who do not care the Holy Qur’aan entirely and Its Commands. Those people are less in numbers, who seek the solution of present problems in Holy Qur’aan. Moreover, in fact, the Holy Qur’aan has been locked up in the cabinets of some Religious Academies and Masaajid, and it seems that the people have decided at their own that It cannot guide them in the present times. So they think, “We do not argue with Its meanings. We can find the solutions of our present problems only in the present developed nations”. The thoughts of this kind are spreading around openly that either Holy Qur’aan should command exactly in the same way as the Europeans are saying, otherwise,  (let’s flee to Allaah), It is an old Book and definitely not applicable nowadays. Some people are engaged in this effort, by observing that the name of Holy Qur’aan should remain somewhere or other, “they would prove by distorting the words of Holy Qur’aan as supportive behaviors of today’s contractors of civilization”.

They think, “If we will not say as the European people say and imitate them not exactly as they are, then we shall be living of nowhere, and shall be removed from the world. Therefore, not only in the politics, but they want to be the same like in their living style as well as in the society also. These people desire to prevent from Holy Qur’aan by their deeds and life style, and as they say with their tongue usually that It is an absurd Book (let’s flee to Allaah), so, it is useless to draw attention today towards It. Just like this, they are going far away from Its teachings in their behavior.

Holy Qur’aan says: Wa  hum  yan-hawna  ‘anhu  wa  yan-‘awna  ‘anh. {And they forbid (men) from it and avoid it}. Does this command of Holy Qur’aan not fit exactly according to their behaviors and thoughts? Apparently we people praise Islam and Holy Qur’aan but either begin to quarrel with that one, who tells us its correct meanings or treat it extremely inattentive. Is this not the same situation as it was of the people of Makkah (the idolaters) that, when they used to come to the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), come for quarreling and when they used to leave that place, then say: They have only useless old fables. We think that we are gaining our end with the European weapons and machines, and our reputation has been established by their help. Is it not waste of time (let’s flee to Allaah), if we leave this certain present advantage and meditate in old and hereinafter Words of Holy Qur’aan? They are the people of old ideas and conservative (true Muslims), who reflect in these matters.  

Is the wine not drunk openly in our country? Are the poor not robbed? Have we not settled our only and biggest object to increase our deposits, wealth and property? Are the theft, fornication, killing and rascality not customary here? Are we not publicizing the sources for spreading the adultery and sinfulness? Are we not choking the neck of humanity by giving the name of art to the dance, music, songs, nudation and nude photography on all kinds of media, which inflates the bestial desires? If all of this is happening then what is there to save us from the destruction?

All verses were revealed in special situations

Lesson # 698 From Holy Qur’aan

All verses were revealed in special situations

Surah ‘Al-‘An-‘aam (Cattle) – Chapter – 6)–Stage - 2

Verses – 25 & 26 of 165, Section – 3 of 20 (Part - 7)

BisMIllaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim

In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

                                                                                
                                               
Lesson -2

The verses and Chapters of Holy Qur’aan used to reveal during special and proper situations, explain and guide the Muslims suitably towards the straightway that in which situation, what they would have to do? The Muslims of that time used to bear in mind after hearing the Word of Allaah Almighty and act upon Its Advice. Then the revealed verse or chapter was used to put at its proper place in the Holy Qur’aan, so that the Muslims, who would come after them, may get guidance in their own circumstances, which make to suit the circumstances of its time of revelation to do better for themselves, and act according to the commands and teachings of concerning verse. They should never do against the commands of Allaah Almighty, mentioned in Holy Qur’aan and the Sayings of His Last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), otherwise, they will be punished just like those opponents, who were punished at that time.

The situation of that time, when this verse was revealed, was that for twelve years the Messenger of Allaah Almighty used to admonish the people, cause to hear them Holy Qur’aan and describe its commands. At that time, the people of Makkah had been trying constantly, except those who embraced Islam, that: As far as it may be possible, we would have to press Islam, act ourselves against its teachings and enforce others to do so. A facsimile of the condition of those people, which was after the preaching of twelve years, has been made in words, and kept in these verses of Holy Qur’aan. And the decision, which was caused to hear in respect of them, that also exists with it, so that the people of every time are watchful and use to think deeply upon their own condition: Whether is there not the same condition as it were at that time (during the time of revelation of this verse)? If it is, then they should correct it immediately, otherwise they will also be given the same punishment as those people were punished.

The situation of that time was that the people used to listen to the Holy Qur’aan and take it as a collection of useless fables of the old people, and prevent others from turning their attention towards it, and they used to hate personally its way. They also wanted to have firm hold on those habits which their ancestors had learned, and they used to say the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) at the time of joining Him: What have you made this false procedure? (Let’s flee to Allaah). It is useless. These idols of us help us in every matter. How can we set them aside?
Holy Qur’aan informed the decision about them that they, the silly people, are making arrangements for their own destruction, and do not know that they will be ruined very soon. Since the next second year of the revelation of this verse, the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) was commanded to migrate from Makkah to Madinah. Everyone knows, what happened with the Makkan people after that. They were disgraced in the world and slain, whereas, they still have to suffer the torment of the Day of Resurrection. Now we should think: What is the condition of today’s Muslims?

Silliness of disbelievers was disclosed

Lesson # 697 From Holy Qur’aan

Silliness of disbelievers was disclosed

Surah ‘Al-‘An-‘aam (Cattle) – Chapter – 6)–Stage - 2

Verses – 25 & 26 of 165, Section – 3 of 20 (Part - 7)

BisMIllaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim

In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

25.  And of them are some who listen unto Thee, but We have placed upon their hearts veils, lest they should understand, and in their ears a deafness. And even if they saw every token they would not believe therein; so much so that, when they come unto Thee to argue with Thee, the disbelievers say: This is naught else than fables of the men of old.

26.  And they forbid (men) from it and avoid it, and they ruin none save themselves, though they perceive not.

Lesson

The events of those people, who passed away before the Revelation of Holy Qur’aan and those, who were present at the time of Its Revelation, have been saved in It. But the purpose of collecting their circumstances is neither cutting a joke and nor any amusement. Moreover, the actual aim is that we should learn a lesson from those collections, take from them warning and correct our deeds, so that we would be saved from those mishaps, which happened upon the earlier people due to their wicked deeds.

Only that part of previous events has been taken in Holy Qur’aan which is useful for us as any advice. The behavior of a few infidels of Makkah has been described in this verse. These were effectively great people of that place, and the spirit to maintain their old false custom had settled down in their hearts, because if that code of conduct was changed then they were afraid of losing their dignity through which they used to overpower others.

They used to consider Islam and Its system as against their benefits. Therefore, they did dislike it very severely. They used to come unto the Messenger of Allaah Almighty, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) and listen to Holy Qur’aan, but the love of their own established way of life and strong determination to keep up their magnificence used to let their hearts not effect. They could not listen anything except the plans of keeping their respect and dignity high, whether they used to observe thousands of the tokens, were not ready to believe.

It is commanded in this verse, “O! Prophet (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him): And of them are some who listen unto Thee, but due to their evil days, We have placed upon their hearts veils, the words of flatterers have been stuffed in to their ears and there is a deafness in their ears, lest they should understand, And even if they saw every token they would not believe therein; so much so that, when they come unto Thee {O Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him)} to argue with Thee, the disbelievers say: This is naught else than fables of the men of old. Observing their conditions, the Muslims should think: whether their condition will or not become as of those because of worldly brawls and poisoned joys.

Their cleverness has increased to the extent that they use to see the Muslims apparently, as they want to show that, “we have no enmity with the Muslims, we meet and listen to them attentively. But their talks are only fables of old people, which are not acceptable”. Their coming to the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) is also a trick, so that other people would think that they are trying their best to understand Islam. If their sayings were able to be accepted then they would have accepted them, whereas, absolutely their purpose was not to understand, but to oppose You (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him).

“When they go out after meeting you (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) then they tell other people: Do not listen to these sayings, these are (let’s flee to Allaah) useless sayings. And they keep their mode entirely separate from and against Islam. These silly people do not understand this a little that they are not damaging Islam even a little bit by doing so, however, they are preparing for their own destruction”.

It is commanded that their presumption has reached the level that they come to you for quarreling and acting like sensible people, these infidels show their opinion: Yes, we listened. It is nothing, otherwise, how could we leave it”? By saying so, they prevent other people from listening to the Messenger’s (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) sayings, and also they run away themselves too from Him. As though they want to destroy the teachings of Holy Qur’aan by their word and deed, and are trying to remove Islam. But the consequence of it will be no other than that these ignorant will be destroyed at their own and Islam will bud and blossom in the world. So, it happened and their silliness disclosed to the whole world.

“Call them to help and save you from the punishment of your wicked deeds”

Lesson # 696 From Holy Qur’aan

“Call them to help and save you from punishment of wicked deeds”

Surah ‘Al-‘An-‘aam (Cattle) – Chapter – 6)–Stage - 2

Verses – 23 & 24 of 165, Section – 3 of 20 (Part - 7)

BisMIllaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim

In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

23.  Then will they have no contention save that they will say: By Allaah, our Lord, we never were idolaters.  

24.  See how they concocted lie against themselves, and (how) the thing which they devised hath failed them!          
23.  Summa  lam  takun-fitnatu-hum  ‘illaaa  ‘an  qaaluu  WAllaahi  Rabbinaa  maa  kunnaa  mush-rikiin.

24.  ‘Unzur  kayfa  kazabuu  ‘alaaa  ‘anfusihim  wa  zalla  ‘anhum-maa  kaanuu  yaftaruun.               
                                                                                                                               

Lesson

It was mentioned in the previous verse: We shall gather all of them together (on the Day of Resurrection), then We shall ask unto those who ascribed partners unto Allaah (Almighty): Where are now those partners of your make-believe? Call them to help and save you from the punishment of your wicked deeds today.

It has been described in this verse that they will become insensible due to the question of Allaah Almighty and will be unable to reply.

They used to pretend, deceive, behave deceitfully, cheat, exercise cunning and use tricks in the world. On that Day, neither any trick nor contention will be useful and nor any pretense. Then they will have nothing to say save: By Allaah, our Lord, we never were idolaters. We did never use to ascribe any partner to Allaah. We used to believe in Allaah Almighty only as our Worshipped and we had no relation with anyone else.

See how they have been confounded that they swore falsely and concocted lie quickly. No cleverness striked them beside this. Their all impostures, contentions and plans were failed there and they became the criminals of false swearing. So there is no doubt that they are wrongdoers, however they caused to increase their crimes due to false swearing.

It is commanded that they will lose their sense after hearing this question and they will have nothing to say as an answer to the above question save this contention that they will swear falsely to prove that they were not wrongdoers/idolaters.

They will say: By Allaah, our Lord, we never were idolaters. We did never believe in any other Worshipped but Allaah. This declaration made by them upon oath will be a lie and against the circumstances. Due to this reason, their life will be entangled more in the calamity.

At the end, it is commanded: See how they are ensnaring their life in further misfortune by false swearing. The things, which they used to devise in the world, all of them have run away today.

Evil deeds are cause of insulting and defaming Islam

Lesson # 695 From Holy Qur’aan

Evil deeds are cause of insulting and defaming Islam

Surah ‘Al-‘An-‘aam (Cattle) – Chapter – 6)–Stage - 2

Verses – 21 & 22 of 165, Section – 3 of 20 (Part - 7)

BisMIllaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim

In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

21.  Who doth greater wrong than he who forgeth a lie against Allaah or denieth His Revelations? Lo! The wrongdoers will not be successful.

22.  And on the Day We gather them together then We shall say unto those who ascribed partners (unto Allaah): Where are (now) those partners of your make-believe?           
21.  Wa  man  ‘azlamu  mimma-niftaraa  ‘alAllaahi  kaziban  ‘aw  kazzaba  bi-‘Aayaatih.  ‘Innahuu  laa  yufli-huzzaalimuun. 

22.  Wa  yawma  nah-shuruhum  jamii-‘an-  summa  naquulu lillaziina  ‘ashra-kuuu  ‘ayna  shurakaaa-‘ukumul-laziina  kuntum  taz-‘umuun.                  
                                                                                                                               

Lesson -2

Let’s consider thoughtfully and ascertain again in this lesson on the verse, we discussed in the previous lesson. A rule has been described in the verse, which can never be broken. That rule is: the consequence of the tyrant will never be good. The word “wrongdoer” (tyrant) is very famous. He is called a wrongdoer, who tyrannizes. Tyranny means either to do such an act or to say such words, which hurt either oneself or someone else, or it lets other people to make wrong assumptions about anyone. The meaning of “the consequence will never be good” is that the tyrant is disgraced and humiliated even in the world, and whether he dwells in a good state for a few days in the beginning, but at last, he is ruined and thrown away. If he is saved in the world someway, after death he will undergo severe torment and restlessness. He dies in such a condition that the people begin to hate him.

The worst form of the tyranny is that someone does such an act or talks in such a manner, due to which either he becomes an arrogant of Allaah Almighty, or which causes to spread false notions about Allaah Almighty among the people, or which becomes cause of contempt in respect of either any Prophet/Messenger (peace be upon Him), or Holy Qur’aan, or Islam. In the group of tyranny – ascribing plurality to Allaah Almighty, claim of Prophet-hood after the last Messenger, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), against the principles of Islam interpretation of Holy Qur’aan as one’s mind desires, denial of Hadith {Sayings of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him)} and all matters of this type come.
    
In the beginning of Islam, the tyranny was customary in two forms i.e. calling the Prophet (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) a liar and considering the Holy Qur’aan a collection of some common tales and stories, and not giving any importance to Its Commands. In the previous lesson, these both forms of wrongdoing were discussed, though it is the Cause of this verse’s Revelation. The Formula of this verse will be applied in every age for every form of tyranny. Every tyrant will suffer the same punishment, which has been described in this verse. The form of decision will also be the same, which has been cleared here. That is to say; whosoever will be disgraced and failed at the end, will be tyrant, and whosoever will be rewarded and succeeded, will be known that he was not a tyrant.

The Muslims should reconsider their condition after reciting this verse, “Wherever are they not involved in any form of tyranny? Whether are they not saying such words or doing such acts due to which they would have been disgracing either Allaah Almighty, or His Prophet (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), or Holy Qur’aan, or Islam? (May Allaah forbid) Wherever our deeds not as are, there is a fear of insult in respect of all above? If it is true, then we are also wrongdoers and greater tyrants, and if the prescribed punishment of tyrants is not applied on us today, then there is a danger of it tomorrow (on the Day of Resurrection).

That has never been proved as wrong, which the Holy Qir’aan has Commanded. There is no need of going in detail, we should think, confessing and being ashamed of our faults that if a Muslim is either a drunkard, gambler, thief, robber, fornicator, dishonest, rascal, greedy of wealth, killer, immoral, arrogant or fond of talking bawdy, then at least, is he not insulting and defaming Islam?

The wrongdoers will not be successful

Lesson # 694 From Holy Qur’aan

The wrongdoers will not be successful

Surah ‘Al-‘An-‘aam (Cattle) – Chapter – 6)–Stage - 2

Verses – 21 & 22 of 165, Section – 3 of 20 (Part - 7)

BisMIllaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim

In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

21.  Who doth greater wrong than he who forgeth a lie against Allaah or denieth His Revelations? Lo! The wrongdoers will not be successful.

22.  And on the Day We gather them together then We shall say unto those who ascribed partners (unto Allaah): Where are (now) those partners of your make-believe?           
21.  Wa  man  ‘azlamu  mimma-niftaraa  ‘alAllaahi  kaziban  ‘aw  kazzaba  bi-‘Aayaatih.  ‘Innahuu  laa  yufli-huzzaalimuun. 

22.  Wa  yawma  nah-shuruhum  jamii-‘an-  summa  naquulu lillaziina  ‘ashra-kuuu  ‘ayna  shurakaaa-‘ukumul-laziina  kuntum  taz-‘umuun.                  
                                                                                                                               


Lesson
It was described in the previous verse: The Word of Allaah Almighty is Itself Witness over Oneness of Allaah Almighty. Then it was told that the Jews and the Christians recognize properly that Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) is a True Messenger of Allaah Almighty and that He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) can never tell a lie.

By another argument, these both matters have been proved in this verse. That can be summarized as, if Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) is a liar in His claim of Prophet-hood, then He calumniates against Allaah Almighty. Therefore, on the basis of this reason, He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) is a wrongdoer (Let us flee to Allaah).

On the other side, those people, who do not believe in Holy Qur’aan and ascribe partners unto Allaah Almighty, they accuse the greatest and clear Revelation of Allaah Almighty falsely. So they are greater wrongdoers. And there is a prescribed rule for the wrongdoers that they do not succeed at the end.

Now the decision that either Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) is a wrongdoer (Let us flee to Allaah) or these disbelievers, will be known by the fact that who succeeds in the last. So, the opponents observed “who failed” and it was clear that Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) succeeded, He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) was True, not a wrongdoer. And His opponents who failed were wrongdoers and liars.

It was the decision of the world. The real Day of the Decision (the Day of Resurrection) is near to come. On that Day, Allaah Almighty will gather and ask the entire wrongdoers and sinners, “Where are (now) those partners of your make-believe?”

It is commanded that two people are greater wrong:
·       The person, who slanders such a lie against Allaah Almighty, which has been revealed by Him, that is to say; claims falsely of prophet-hood.
·        He, who denies and falsifies His clear Revelations and ascribes partners (unto Allaah Almighty).

And there is a prescribed rule for the wrongdoers that they fail at the end. The people have seen in the world that Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) succeeded and His opponents failed, because He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) is True and His opponents are liars.

Even on the Day of Resurrection, the idolaters will be embarrassed by saying: Request them today, whom you used to ascribed partners of Allaah Almighty in the world and see, “How much they can help you, otherwise, suffer the punishment of your wrongdoings.

Failure of the Muslims

Lesson # 693 From Holy Qur’aan

Failure of the Muslims

Surah ‘Al-‘An-‘aam (Cattle) – Chapter – 6)–Stage - 2

Verses – 19b & 20 of 165, Section – 2 of 20 (Part - 7)

BisMIllaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim

In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
                                                                                                                               

Lesson -2

The aim of the Revelation of Holy Qur’aan has been described very clearly in the previous verses. It has been made incumbent upon the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) and care of Him, upon the entire Muslim nation, to keep this object in front and fulfill it, as it appears from the meaning of above-mentioned verse.
  
It has been mentioned in the previous verse: The Holy Qur’aan has been inspired in Muhammad, the Last Messenger of Allaah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) that the people, who exist at the spot, should be warned by this source (Holy Qur’aan) that there is a very severe danger in either opposing it or not drawing proper attention toward it. And it is the duty of all Muslims to manifest this subject (not only these people, who are present, but through them, also of those human beings, whom this Holy Qur’aan reaches until the Day of Resurrection.

It is open that this Holy Word will reach up to more people even after the transfer of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him). At that time, the Messenger of Allaah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) will not grace the world with His presence. So this duty will rest upon His nation, that they should inform the people about the danger of not acting upon the commands, mentioned in Holy Qur’aan. And they should explain its meaning in such a manner that nobody would have any objection that “we were not taught like this, otherwise we would have thought on its commands, and acted upon them”.

It is known clearly from this verse that Muhammad is the last Prophet and Messenger of Allaah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) and the Holy Qur’aan is the Last Scripture, which was revealed in the world. No inspiration will be revealed upon anyone after it. It is why that it has been revealed: “Allaah is Witness between me and you. And this Qur’aan hath been inspired in me, that I may warn therewith you and whomsoever it may reach” (with effect from His time to the Day of Resurrection): verse 19a. it is Your and Your nation’s duty after You (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) to teach all of them.

The Messenger of Allaah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) performed His duty in such a manner that He caused to hear the people by reciting the Holy Qur’aan and guided: You should continue your attempt also to deliver it up to other people like Me. He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) was not satisfied to cause to hear only but explained the meanings of Holy Qur’aan. And He acted upon it with such a practice that He set the importance of its commands in the hearts of the people well efficiently.

There are two parts of this Duty:
·       Learning the words of Holy Qur’aan own by heart and conveying them up to other people, and as the Messenger of Allaah Almighty acted upon it and that, what He commanded to cause to know its meanings, which are called Hadith (Sayings of the Messenger), keep it also safe and cause to reach others.

·       Informing the human beings about its importance and necessity for the human life.

The Muslims performed first part of the duty to some extent, but sorry to say! Duty of the second part could not be performed properly as it needed. The value of any practical program, as it is Holy Qur’aan, can remain established, when it will be respected personally and properly. To advice others, but not to follow personally, makes the advice useless. With which mouth I say that Islam has the best way of life, whereas I don’t act upon it strictly myself? Verbally I praise it very much, but when the time for action comes, I learn from others “how to dwell” and adopt their modes of living. Observe now a days, as much as fun and play, immodesty and obscenity, wickedness and immorality, deceit and treachery is customary in others, that is, but more than them is customary in the Muslims. But verbally they (the Muslims) say: Fear Allaah Almighty, be pious and adopt abstinence. Is it not unforgivable crime and sin?
