Bell calls others to church but goes not itself

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

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


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?

Holy Qur’aan desires to obliterate the polytheism (belief in a plurality of God Almighty) in the world. Adoration of Allah Almighty – prayer, a fast, pilgrimage and paying the poor-due (Zakaat) has been prescribed for the purpose that the human being should remain inclined unto Allah Almighty, and should never consider that any other can supply his wants. Reflect in the previous verses. It seems clearly that the humankind is responsible himself of going astray from the Path of Allah Almighty. He wants to indemnity of his weakness with the help of felt things. His conjecture produces before him his own form as an incapable, friendless and helpless; on one side; and on the other; it terrifies him from magnificence of such things which are seen apparently as pompous and exalted. He co…

72.  But if ye are averse I have asked of you no wage. My wage is the concern of Allah only, and I am commanded to be of those who surrender (unto Him).  72. Fa-‘in  tawallay-tum  famaa  sa-‘altukum-min-  ‘ajr.  ‘In  ‘ajri-ya  ‘illaa  ‘alAllaahi  wa  ‘umirtu  ‘an  ‘akuuna  minal-Mus-limiin.       
It has been explained: after that, Prophet Noah (peace be upon him) said to his people! I do not demand wage of my work from you. God preserve you from it. I perform my duty only for the Cause of Allah Almighty and do not want anything from you. Only He is my Befriender and Patron.
After it, it is obvious that neither I fear your pomp and show, influence, wickedness or intelligence, and nor am I seeker of any kind of subsistence of life from you. And I have never devised that I should r…
