Lesson # 699 From Holy Qur’aan

Present circumstances

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

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


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?

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…
