Abstinence from rebellion and dissension
Surah Huud (Hud) - 11
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
قِيلَ يَٰنُوحُ ٱهْبِطْ بِسَلَٰمٍ مِّنَّاوَبَرَكَٰتٍ عَلَيْكَ وَعَلَىٰٓ أُمَمٍ مِّمَّن مَّعَكَ وَأُمَمٌ سَنُمَتِّعُهُمْ ثُمَّ يَمَسُّهُم مِّنَّا عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ (48)
48. It was said (unto him): O Noah! Go thou down (from the mountain) with peace from Us and blessings upon thee and some nations (that will spring) from those with thee. And (there will be other) nations unto whom We shall give enjoyment a long while and then a painful doom from Us will overtake them.
48. Qiila yaa-Nuu-huh-bit bi-Salaa-mim-minnaa wa Bara-kaatin ‘alayka wa ‘alaaa ‘umamim-mim-mam-ma-‘ak. Wa ‘umamun sanu-matti-‘uhum summa yamas-suhum-minnaa ‘azaabun ‘aliim.
Salaa-mun – (peace and safety, ease and comfort), it is a promise of prosperity and betterment from Allah Almighty. Only He is; Who provides peace and prosperity and Who is a Protector from all difficulties.
‘Umamun – (nations, folks), this word is plural of ‘ummatun which has passed in Suratul-Baqarah and ‘An-’aam. It means “a group, a band, a company, a class, whether that is of human beings or those which have life. Here it aims “folks and tribes of the mankind”.
Allah Almighty commanded to Noah (peace be upon him): Quarrelsome people have been finished. Water of storm got down and shortly it would be dried. Now you should go down from the mountain along with your companions and be settled on the land. Now the earth will be populated with your descendants. After it, such kind of disaster will not be sent by Us on the earth before the General Resurrection. You and your companions will dwell with comfort and prosperity. Our blessings will be sent down on you, your companions and many from your and their children. And We shall provide them enjoyment for a long time. However some people from them will choose insurrection. At first they will be given the things of worldly luxurious enjoyment. But at the end, a furious and painful doom will overtake them due to their evil deeds and they will be ruined from the world.
From this explanation, that Straight Path, which Allah Almighty has fixed for human life in the world, is known, that is to say, obedience of the commandments of Allah Almighty and His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), and abstinence from rebellion and dissension.
