God has sealed their hearts and ears & their eyes are covered

God has sealed their hearts and ears & their eyes are covered

Surah ‘Al-‘Baqarah(The Cow) – Chapter – 2) Stage – 1, Verse – 7 of 286, Section – 1 of 40 (Part - 1)
BisMIllaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim In the name ofAllah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Allah has sealed their hearts and their hearing, and on their eyes there is a covering. Theirs will be an awful doom KhatamAllaahu ‘alaa quluu- bihim wa ‘alaa sam-‘ihim.- wa ‘alaaa ‘absaarihim gishaa-wah. Wa lahum ‘azaabun ‘aziim.
Lesson
Khatama - (Sealed, stamped), it aims the result, which is produced due to constant refusal and opposition of the Truth. The purpose to seal anything is that nothing may enter from outside and nothing may go out from it, which has been sealed. For example; if the heart has been sealed, then neither the Truth can enter into it and nor the boldness can remain in the heart so that it may declare the good as agreeable.
Quluu-bihim - (Their hearts). This word is plural of Qalb. It does not mean here that the Heart is a…

BisMIllaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim In the name ofAllah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
These depend on guidance from their Lord. These are the successful.          ‘Ulaaa-‘ika ‘alaa hudam-mir-Rabbihim wa ‘ulaaa-‘ika humul-Muf-lihuun
Lesson
‘Al-Muf-lihuun – Those who succeed. This word is built from ‘Falaah’, which means, ‘happiness, prosperity, profit and safety.’ But literally ‘Falaah’ means, ‘amputation’. Probably agriculturist or farmer is so called ‘Fallaah’ because he ploughs the land, sows the seed, which comes out from the earth in the shape of a young plant. As per Arabic language, this word has vast meanings. All kinds of worldly success and Hereafter have been mentioned in it collectively. All scholars agree to this meaning of this word that there is no better word in Arabic language except ‘Falaah’ to declare all kinds of success.…

Surah ‘Al-‘Baqarah(The Cow) – Chapter – 2) Stage – 1, Verse – 4 of 286, Section – 1 of 40 (Part - 1)
BisMIllaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim In the name ofAllah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
And who believe in that which is revealed unto thee (Muhammad) and that which was revealed before thee, Wallaziina yu’-minuuna bi-maaa ‘unzila ‘ilayka wa maaa ‘unzila min-qablik.
Lesson
       Fourth praise of pious is mentioned in this verse. Namely these people believe in all Heavenly Books and Written Revelations.
As though, two things have been explained in this verse:
1.        Having faith in the teachings and instructions of Holy Book revealed unto Messenger, Muhammad (peace be upon Him) whole heartily.
2.        Believing in it that the Scriptures revealed unto the Prophets, came prior to the last Messenger (peace be upon them), were Just and from GOD.
      Now it is clear also that in Holy Qur’aan, only the Scripture revealed unto last Prophet and the Scriptu…

BisMIllaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim In the name ofAllah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
And establish worship Wa yuqiimuunas-Salaata
Lesson
Yuqiimuuna - Establish, Set up, Settle (oneself in a position), Place (someone) in a position, Prove the truth of (an event), Cause people to accept (a belief) ‘As-Salaata - Literal meanings of this word are, “prayer, blessing; benediction”.
    Establishing prayer means that “the individual should offer the prayer with entire terms and restrictions as well as fall prostrate along with others too, to perform this duty. In the phrase of Divine Law of Islam ‘as-Salaah is used for a particular worship that is called Prayer. Name of this worship is kept ‘as-Salaah because maximum part of this worship comprises on blessings. In this worship along with Tongue, Heart and outward parts of Body also ask for ble…

Lesson
Hudan – Guidance, Path of Knowledge, Equipment for moving on the path, strength and power to reach the destination. These all things are included in the meanings of ‘Guidance’. We have learnt explanation of this word in the first Chapter “The Opening” (‘Al-Faatihah). 
Muttaqiin – This word is Plural of Muttaqii, which means Temperate, Abstinent and Sober, who fear from GOD in their hearts, who live in abstinence, who do their work with care. One incident of Sayyidina Abi bin Ka’ab (Radi-ALLAAHU-An-hu) is being written here for explanation of the word Taqwaa (Piety).        Once Sayyidina ‘Umar (Radi-ALLAAHU-An-hu) asked from Sayyidina Abi bin Ka’ab (Radi-ALLAAHU-An-hu) about the me…
