Don’t imitate your ancestors in evil deeds
Lesson # 838 from the Noble Quran
Surah ‘A’-‘RAAF (The Heights) – Chapter – 7)
Stage – 2, Verse – 28 of 206, Section – 3 of 24 (Part - 8)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
· We found our fathers doing it, so we imitate for their footprints.
· Allah (Almighty) has enjoined on us to perform as our ancestors used to do.
Allah Almighty commands in this verse that this kind of deed is lewdness and He has rejected such kinds of acts and the reasons explained by them.
It is commanded that when these people do some lewdness they say: We have seen our forefathers doing the same, we only imitate them. This question has been solved in the story of Adam (peace be upon Him) that He was Father of all of you, but He came into temptation of Satan, so, imitation of ancestors cannot be suitable in every work, because it is possible that they would have done some works due to deception of Satan, from which, it is compulsory for the children to be saved.
Another matter about which they say: Allah has enjoined on us: Make the circuit of Ka’-bah with naked bodies. Allah Almighty commanded His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) in this regard to tell them: Allah Almighty enjoins never lewdness and immodesty. Which evidence have you about it that Allah Almighty enjoined to go round the Ka’-bah in nude condition? He has arranged for you the sources to prepare the raiment in the world. Then, why do you live nude and shameless? If you desire to imitate your forefathers, you should imitate your first Father Adam (peace be upon Him), that, when He was stripped all at once, He (peace be upon Him) began to cover His body with the leaves of the trees immediately. You should not use such type of words for Allah Almighty, which has He neither told you nor taught.
Entire indecent, obscene and evil talks and deeds were stopped forever as it is manifest from the Words of this verse.
