Dispute in religious matters - Quran Chapter 3- 105 (Pt-4, Stg-1) (L-434) - درس قرآن


Quran Chapter 3- 105 (Pt-4, Stg-1) (L-434) - درس قرآن

Dispute in religious matters

Surah ‘Aali-‘Im-raan (The Family of ‘Imran) – Chptr – 3) 

‘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)

 وَلَا تَكُونُوا۟ كَٱلَّذِينَ تَفَرَّقُوا۟ وَٱخْتَلَفُوا۟ مِنۢ بَعْدِمَا جَآءَهُمُ ٱلْبَيِّنَٰتُ وَأُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ لَهُمْ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌ 105

105.  And be ye not as those who separated and disputed after the clear proofs had come unto them. And for such there is an awful doom-        
105.  Wa  laa  takuunuu  kalla-ziina tafarraquu  wakhtalafuu  mim- ba’-di  maa  jaaa-‘ahumul-Bayyi-naat.  Wa  ‘ulaaa-‘ika  lahum  ‘azaabun  ‘aziim,      

Commentary
      
Importance of the existence and establishment of a group had been cleared in the previous verse. Who would have to perform the duties of Da’-wah ‘ilal-khayr (invitation towards the goodness), ‘Amr  bil-ma’-ruufi  (enjoining the right conduct) and Nahii  ‘anil-munkar (to forbid the wrong), save the Muslims from evil and rebellion of the Infidels and the obstinate? It is the duty of true and sincere Muslims to join this group. Now it is commanded that ‘you must not be like those people who put the separation among themselves and divided into sects of the religion, whereas, they had known the fact.

The people who separated and put the Ummah in the divisions of sects of the religion were the Jews and the Christians, who had received clear and unambiguous commandments of Allah Almighty. Nevertheless, they put the differences in the principles of Islamic law just by following the superstitions and greed, which resulted that they were ruined and the torment of Allah descended upon them.

This verse proved that due to separation in the religion, how much horrible and terrible results appear, while Allah Almighty illuminates the path of truth and righteousness clearly. Certain evil-natured and insurrected people disrupt in the religion due to following their sensual desires; worship of the wealth and the greed. Like this, it weakens the collective strength, teachings of the religion cannot spread, every sect conspires to finish the other among themselves and resultantly their freedom and national existence wipes out from the face of the earth nationally and religiously.

Entire destructive results of the separation are before us but Alas! Today the Muslims have also been divided into many sects. They are collecting destructive provision for themselves by separating from the clear and unambiguous principles of Islamic law. Thanks Allah Almighty that despite this Vandalism, there are some such groups among the Muslims which consist the pious and the sincere people, who are performing the duties of ‘Amr  bil-ma’-ruufi  (enjoining the right conduct) and Nahii  ‘anil-munkar (to forbid the wrong). May Allah Almighty give more strength to these groups and make us able to join them and to do good works.

Responsibilities of Reform Party - Quran Chapter 3- 104 (Pt-4, Stg-1) (L-433) - درس قرآن


Quran Chapter 3- 104 (Pt-4, Stg-1) (L-433) - درس قرآن

Responsibilities of Reform Party

Surah ‘Aali-‘Im-raan (The Family of ‘Imran) – Chptr – 3) 

‘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)

 وَلْتَكُن مِّنكُمْأُمَّةٌ يَدْعُونَ إِلَى ٱلْخَيْرِ وَيَأْمُرُونَ بِٱلْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ ٱلْمُنكَرِ وَأُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ هُمُ ٱلْمُفْلِحُونَ 104

104.  And there may spring from you a nation who invite to goodness, and enjoin right conduct and forbid the wrong. And such are they who are successful.        
104.  Wal-takum-minkum  ‘Umma-tuny-yad-‘uuna  ‘ilal-khayri  wa  ya’-muruuna  bil-ma’-ruufi  wa  yanhawna  ‘anil-munkar.  Wa ‘ulaaa-‘ika  humul-mufli-huun.       

Commentary
      
It has been described by Allah Almighty in this verse that abstinence, alliance and concordance in national life, Islamic brother-hood and other common excellence may remain until a group from the Muslims stand firm for inviting and conveying the message of Islam to non-believers. They should call the entire people of the world towards the Holy Qur’an and the traditions of Last Prophet Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) with their words and deeds. And when they feel that the people are disregarding the goodness and have involved in the evils, then they should cause to turn their attention towards the virtue, enjoin the right conduct and forbid them from evil deeds.

It is clear that this work can be done only by those people who may distinguish between good and bad, aware perfectly of the teachings of Holy Qur’an and they should also be able to look for the opportunity. Otherwise, it is also possible that either an uncivilized/ignorant person will create more infringement instead of correction by supposing the goodness as badness and the badness as goodness, or he may adopt any such method, which may cause to increase their infidelity.
                      
Existence of such group has remained in every times and period, which has been trying its best to invite the people to goodness, enjoin the right conduct and forbid them from belief in a plurality of Allah Almighty, idolatry, infidelity, irreligious and worship of superstition. Islam has been spreading only due to their cause, while the depravity, opposition, mischief and brawl are spreading commonly. Essentially, this type of group should be supported, more and more people should be connected with it. They should perform following three duties by bringing their full possible means in function with complete exertion and earnestness:

·       Da’-wah ‘ilal-khayri -  (invitation towards goodness), by conveying the Message of Islam to non-believers.

·       ‘Amr  bil-ma’-ruufi  - (enjoining right conduct), to spread the goodness imperatively, put the public on the path of goodness.  

·       Nahii  ‘anil-munkar  - (to forbid the wrong), to stop the badness and evils from the nation and the state with an explicit command.

As though it is the duty of the chastiser group to invite the people towards goodness, enjoin the right conduct and forbid the wrong with full strength and power practically.

Brotherhood - Kindness of God - Quran Chapter 3- 103a (Pt-4, Stg-1) (L-432) - درس قرآن


Quran Chapter 3- 103a (Pt-4, Stg-1) (L-432) - درس قرآن

Brotherhood - Kindness of God

Surah ‘Aali-‘Im-raan (The Family of ‘Imran) – Chptr – 3) 

‘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)

 وَٱعْتَصِمُوا۟ بِحَبْلِ ٱللَّهِ جَمِيعًا وَلَا تَفَرَّقُوا۟ وَٱذْكُرُوا۟ نِعْمَتَ ٱللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذْ كُنتُمْ أَعْدَآءً فَأَلَّفَ بَيْنَ قُلُوبِكُمْفَأَصْبَحْتُم بِنِعْمَتِهِۦٓ إِخْوَٰنًا وَكُنتُمْ عَلَىٰ شَفَا حُفْرَةٍ مِّنَ ٱلنَّارِ فَأَنقَذَكُم مِّنْهَا كَذَٰلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ ٱللَّهُ لَكُمْ ءَايَٰتِهِۦ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَهْتَدُونَ 103

103b.  And remember Allah’s favour unto you: How ye were enemies and He made friendship between your hearts so that ye became as brothers by His Grace; and (how) ye were upon the brink of an abyss of fire, and He did save you from it. Thus Allah maketh clear His Revelations unto you, that haply ye may be guided.       
103b.  Waz-kuruu  ni’-matal-laahi  ‘alaykum  ‘iz  kuntum 
‘a’-daaa-‘an-  fa-‘allafa  bayna  quluubikum  fa-‘asbahtum  bi-ni’-matihiii  ‘ikhwaanaa,  wa  kuntum  ‘alaa  shafaa  hufratim-minannaari  fa-‘anqa-zakum-minhaa.  Kazaalika  yuba-yyinul-laahu  lakum  ‘aayaatihii  la-‘al-lakum  tahtaduun.         

Commentary
      
Before Islam, the inhabitants of Arab were ignorant, impolite and incautious in manners. They had been fallen into idol worship, polytheism, malice and obstinacy. A brother was enemy of the other. The wars and bloodsheds were at increase. Events of theft and highway robbery were common. In short, those people used to pass their lives like beasts of prey, by falling down from the grade of humanity.  

In such circumstances, Mercy of Allah Almighty was excited. His Light was disclosed. He sent His last Messenger Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) for the guidance of the humankind, who purified the human beings from the entire evils, guided them towards goodness and happiness, and made them brothers of one another.

Above mentioned verse signifies towards such Bounty and favor of Allah Almighty. He is reminding the Muslims His Beneficence. He made them intimate friends and sympathizers of one another by discharging hundreds of the years old malice and enmities from the hearts of the people with His Management. He collected them upon one religion due to which such trust established that their enemies were overawed by feeling their unity. This society and unity are too much big Graciousness of Allah Almighty, which could not be gotten by the Muslims by spending their entire treasures.

Allah Almighty exemplified it to manifest the life before Islam that the people were standing upon the brink of an abyss of fire (Hell) due to Infidelity and disbelief, and they were near to destruction. Allah Almighty saved you by catching your hands and bestowed the Light of Belief by means of His Last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). If the people remember these magnificent religious and worldly kindnesses of Allah Almighty, then they will never return astray. For this reason, Allah Almighty has described His tokens and verses openly, and signified the life of dissensions as the Hell.

Holding the Cable of God fast - Quran Chapter 3- 103a (Pt-4, Stg-1) (L-431) - درس قرآن


Quran Chapter 3- 103a (Pt-4, Stg-1) (L-431) - درس قرآن

Holding the Cable of God fast

Surah ‘Aali-‘Im-raan (The Family of ‘Imran) – Chptr – 3) 

‘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)

 وَٱعْتَصِمُوا۟ بِحَبْلِ ٱللَّهِ جَمِيعًا وَلَا تَفَرَّقُوا۟ وَٱذْكُرُوا۟ نِعْمَتَ ٱللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذْ كُنتُمْ أَعْدَآءً فَأَلَّفَ بَيْنَ قُلُوبِكُمْفَأَصْبَحْتُم بِنِعْمَتِهِۦٓ إِخْوَٰنًا وَكُنتُمْ عَلَىٰ شَفَا حُفْرَةٍ مِّنَ ٱلنَّارِ فَأَنقَذَكُم مِّنْهَا كَذَٰلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ ٱللَّهُ لَكُمْ ءَايَٰتِهِۦ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَهْتَدُونَ 103

103a.  And hold fast, all of you together, to the Cable of Allah, and do not separate,      
103a.  Wa’-tasimuu  bi- HabLillaahi  jamii-‘anw-wa  laa  tafar-raquu,       

Commentary
      
HabLillaahi  - (the Cable of Allah), besides literal meanings of Habl as cable, it also means ‘covenant’, promise’ in Arabic language. Moreover, each that thing, which may be used as affinity, can be meant too with it. In this verse, the aim from bringing the word HabLillaahi  is “Holy Qur’an and Divine Law of Islam”, holding of which is the source of success in this world and deliverance on the Day of Judgment.    

jamii-‘an  - (all together), that is to say; all the people of Muslim nation should hold fast the Cable of Allah Almighty with amity and alliance collectively.

‘A’-tasimuu  - (hold fast), ‘i’-tisaam means to hold fast and grasp strongly. It desires that the Word of Allah Almighty be propped very strongly with intention and stability, be acted upon it and be made it aim of one’s life.

Allah Almighty has caused to know the policy in this verse. If that policy is adopted then the Muslim nation can be saved from the conspiracies, evil and dissensions of the enemies. As that, if all of you together will hold fast the Holy Qur’an, Divine Islamic Law and will act upon it, then no devilish power may overcome you, and no evildoer will be able to mislead and cause you to go astray.

In the previous verse, the persons of the nation were instructed that they all should better their own lives. They should live a life of God fearing and pious persons; remain living in Islam and die in Islam. Now it has been commanded to the Muslim Ummah in this verse that after setting their personal lives, they should hold fast, all of them together, to the Cable of Allah and should not be disjoined. When it will be done so, then their collective lives will also be unshaken and will not be able to seize like their individual lives. Due to this act, the distracted powers are assembled and a dead nation gets new life.

To hold fast the Holy Qur’an is ordered by Allah Almighty. It is such a recipe that by using it, the entire political, economical, social, moral and worldly evils of the nation run away. Holy Qur’an teaches the lesson of success in this world as well as it promises about honor and triumph in the Hereafter. Its teachings comprehend upon all points of view of the human life. The Word of Allah Almighty describes us solution of our entire individual and collective problems. Overall, it is a complete Code of life. Mystery of Success and exaltation of the Muslim nation is hidden in its following.

To hold fast the Holy Qur’an does not mean to hold it with hands only. Like this, it does not aim to keep it in view each time that everything is labeled with it, its verses are searched for each desire and the object is attained by winning over their meanings.

Life at Islam and death at Islam - Quran Chapter 3- 102 (Pt-4, Stg-1) (L-430) - درس قرآن


Quran Chapter 3- 102 (Pt-4, Stg-1) (L-430) - درس قرآن

Life at Islam and death at Islam

Surah ‘Aali-‘Im-raan (The Family of ‘Imran) – Chptr – 3) 

‘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)

 يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ ٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ حَقَّ تُقَاتِهِۦوَلَا تَمُوتُنَّ إِلَّا وَأَنتُم مُّسْلِمُونَ 102

102.  O ye who believe! Observe your duty to Allah with right observance, and die not save as those who have surrendered (unto Him)         
102.  Yaaa-‘ayyuhal-laziina  ‘aa-manuttaqUllaaha  haqqa  tuqaa-tiHii  wa  laa  tamuutunna ‘illaa  wa  ‘antum-Muslimuun.

Commentary
      
Auspicious Existence of the Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) and blessings of his company were described in the previous lesson. In addition, it was explained that how a Muslim could go to the darkness of Infidelity after getting the light of Belief, in the presence of Allah’s Beloved Messenger Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) and his teachings. The Muslims are being preached in this verse, “Observe your duty to Allah with right observance, and die not save as those who have surrendered (unto Him) so that Allah Almighty keep you steadfast on the path of guidance.  

Haqqa  tuqaa-tiHii  - (with right observance), we should fear Allah Almighty as though and as much as we have to Observe our duty to Him with right observance. It has been explained many times earlier about God fearing, abstinence, piety, and the word “Taqwaa” has also been used individually.

Taqwaa is the Soul of Islam and Belief, because it is difficult to spring up the Islamic characteristics and chaste life without living with virtuousness, care and looking after. Therefore, Allah Almighty commanded here, “Observe your duty to Allah with right observance, and die not save as those who have surrendered unto Him”. As though, Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) said himself, “Belief is in between the Fear and the Hope”.  The earth and the skies, sun and moon, rivers and mountains, forests and greensward, animals, vegetation and plants, minerals, fossils and stones etc, on the whole, the entire existing things have been created by Allah and are in His holding. Any atom of the world cannot move hither to thither without His order. Life and death of the human beings is in His Hand and their standing and sitting, walking and moving is in His Jurisdiction. Living in poverty and prosperity is according to written fate by Allah Almighty. Briefly, every ordinary movement of the human beings is in the Power and authority of Allah Almighty. Therefore, whose right observance on the human life can be more than Allah Almighty? While the humankind is indigent of Allah Almighty for his life and its continuance on each step, then it is necessary for him to be frightened from Allah Almighty as much as He has the right to be afraid of Him.

In the second piece of the verse, Allah Almighty commanded to the Muslims, “and die not save as those who have surrendered (unto Him)”, do not do any act contrary to Islam, your life and death should be purely at Islam, it is due upon you that you should not die until you don’t become a true and perfect Muslim. In other words, it means that, you should remain living with Islamic glory every second and every minute. Who does know that when the death comes? Infidelity, devilishness, greed and selfishness should never cause to winnow near oneself during the lifetime. This is the form only by which we can come out with credit in the obedience of His Order that we should Live for Islam and Die for Islam.

Existence of the Messenger - Quran Chapter 3- 101 (Pt-4, Stg-1) (L-429) - درس قرآن


Quran Chapter 3- 101 (Pt-4, Stg-1) (L-429) - درس قرآن

Existence of the Messenger

Surah ‘Aali-‘Im-raan (The Family of ‘Imran) – Chptr – 3) 

‘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)

 وَكَيْفَ تَكْفُرُونَوَأَنتُمْ تُتْلَىٰ عَلَيْكُمْ ءَايَٰتُ ٱللَّهِ وَفِيكُمْ رَسُولُهُۥ وَمَن يَعْتَصِم بِٱللَّهِ فَقَدْ هُدِىَ إِلَىٰ صِرَٰطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍ 101

101.  How can you disbelieve, when it is ye unto whom Allah’s Revelations are recited, and His Messenger is in your midst? And he who holdeth fast to Allah, he indeed is guided unto a right path.          
101.  Wa  kayfa  tak-furuuna  wa  ‘antum  tutlaa 
‘alaykum  ‘Aayaa-tullaahi  wa  fiikum  Rasuuluh. 
Wa  many-ya’-tasim  billaahi  fa-qad  hudiya  ‘ilaa  Siraatim-Musttaqiim.

Commentary
      
It has been described in this verse that the nation like Muslims can not become disbeliever after having faith, because Messenger of Allah Almighty (of high dignity) is present among them, who causes to hear them the Word of Allah Almighty, which increases their Belief. He recites the Revelations of Allah Almighty. It is the fact that the person, whosoever holds fast to Allah Almighty; leaving entire other paths and whosoever places confidence and trust in Him heartily, no power can foil up or down him from the straight path.

The ancient lineages of Madinah had very severe enmity with one another before Islam. They used to decide on a war upon very ordinary matters and the bazaar of bloodshed used to be hot (angry). When the Last Messenger of Allah Almighty, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) migrated from Makkah to Madinah, then they were lucky. The enmity between the tribes, which had been running since hundreds of the years, changed in to friendship due to teachings of Islam and blessing of the company of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). Moreover, very strong brotherly relations were established among them.

The Jews of Madinah became very unpleasant due to likewise meeting of these dynasties and families, and being collected together for the service and protection of Islam. They appointed a person, to make mention wherever the people of the both lineages assemble about “The War of Bu-‘aas” (which was fought between the two famous tribes). He began reading the poetry to remind about the war when he found opportunity to cause to hear the both parties. As soon as the people heard this poetry, then with in no time a spark of anger was inflamed and both tribes began to equip their weapons for war. By chance Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) reached there with some companions (may Allah be pleased with them). He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) commanded, “O Muslims! Fear from Allah Almighty. While I am in your midst, then how this uncivil calling out is aloud? Allah Almighty guided you. Do you want to return from the light of guidance immediately after arriving, towards the darkness of ignorance”? As soon as they listened to the voice of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), then entire rings of the devil’s net broke one by one. The entire people threw their weapons and began weeping and embracing each other. They all understood that it was their enemies’ mischievousness, from which they would have to be careful in future.

Obey not the People of the Scripture - Quran Chapter 3- 100 (Pt-4, Stg-1) (L-428) - درس قرآن


Quran Chapter 3- 100 (Pt-4, Stg-1) (L-428) - درس قرآن

Obey not the People of the Scripture

Surah ‘Aali-‘Im-raan (The Family of ‘Imran) – Chptr – 3) 

‘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)

 يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓا۟ إِن تُطِيعُوا۟ فَرِيقًا مِّنَ ٱلَّذِينَ أُوتُوا۟ ٱلْكِتَٰبَ يَرُدُّوكُم بَعْدَ إِيمَٰنِكُمْ كَٰفِرِينَ 100

100.  O ye who believe! If ye obey a party of those who have received the Scripture they will make you disbelievers after your belief.
100.  Yaaa- ‘ayyuhal-laziina  ‘aa-manuuu  ‘in-  tutii-‘uu  fariiqam-minallaziina  ‘uutul-Kitaaba  ya-rudduukum-  ba’-da  ‘imaani-kum  kaafiriin.

Commentary
      
The people of the Scripture were threatened in the previous verses, “It is not convenient for you that you mislead the people intentionally telling them fictitious faults regarding the religion of Islam, while open tokens and proofs in respect of the truth of Islam, HolyQur’an and the Last Messenger, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) have been manifested upon you”.  

It is clear that the children of Israel used to bear malice willing or unwilling. They did not refrain after listening to the advice. Therefore, along with this, the Muslims have also been advised, “You should not be taken in by these mischievous persons. They will try to make you disbelievers with tricks of various kinds. If you will move on their suggestions and obey them, then you will throw yourselves into a state of anxiety that gradually you will fall again in the darkness of the infidelity, after coming out from the light of Belief, whence it is much difficult to come back afterwards.

ya-rudduukum – (they will make you disbelievers), origin of this word is Raddun and the word Murtad  has also come out from it. Hardest and severest punishment in Islam is for the Murtad, (renegade, the person, who turns away from Islam, is called Murtad). We cannot compel any person to accept Islam, but he cannot be forgiven who becomesMurtad (renegade of Islam), because he falls in the well of darkness of the infidelity willfully and knowingly.  

Several affairs manifest from this verse:

1.   The people of the Scripture are extremely enemies of Islam and they try always that the Muslims should be turned from the religion Islam towards infidelity and belief in a plurality of God (polytheism). It is there deliberate conspiracy.

2.   A man is known by the company he keeps and the company affects itself very soon. If the Muslims will choose friendship with the people of the Scripture, act upon their advice and accept their sayings, then in process of the time their wickedness, depravity, denial and diabolical acts will infect the Muslims too.

The Muslims should learn in such circumstances that they should neither attend more the company of the people of the Scripture, nor listen to their talks, nor be deceived and nor increase their relationship with them. It is the only form to save oneself from their wickedness.
