All cases go back to God for Judgment

All cases go back to God for Judgment

Surah ‘Al-Baqarah (The Cow) – Chapter – 2)
Stage – 1, Verses – 210 & 211 of 286, Section – 26 of 40 (Part - 2)



BisMIllaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Wait they for naught else than that Allah should come unto them in the shadows of the clouds with the angles? Then the case would be already judged. And all cases go back to Allah (for judgment).
Hal yanzuruuna ‘illaaa ‘any-ya’-tiya-humullaahu fii zulalim- minal-gamaami wal-malaaa-‘ikatu wa quziyal-‘amr.  Wa ‘ilAllaahi turja-‘ul-‘umuur.

Lesson


Allah Almighty granted different powers to the mankind, in which wisdom and understanding are also included, so that the human being may distinguish among the right and the wrong, good and bad, and the oppression and justice. Apart from these powers Allah Almighty sent Prophets (peace be upon them) for guidance of the mankind and to prove their truth, He sent also different signs. So that, by looking these signs the mankind would believe in the Prophets (peace be upon them), think about their teachings and adopt the pathway to reach God Almighty. In the signs of Allah Almighty:

Firstly, there are those signs which as if, talk at their own that these all things are created by the Creator who is Almighty, Wise, Omnipresent, Compassionate and Kind, for example; creation of the universe, its management, its evolution, then arrangements for the necessities and satisfaction of the mankind.

Secondly, the signs which reached us through The Last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) unto us, for example, His (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) personal perfect Model role of personality, His spotless character, His good attitude and His (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) miracles etc.

After going through these both kinds of signs; wisdom of individual demands that the Belief should be embraced in Allah Almighty, Who is The Creator of the entire worlds and Who brings them up. If any individual or group slides back from it then as he is waiting for that God Almighty have to come personally before him with His Army of the Angles, and tell: It is My Order, accept it. Looking out of this kind will end on ruin and destruction of these people. Because neither it has happened earlier and nor will happen in future. Allah Almighty gave sense and vision, and sent His signs after it. Now it has become obligation for the mankind to believe in them. If one neither considers these signs, nor uses his wisdom and understanding, he will surely be destroyed because there is no reason remained of not believing in Allah. Then the entire mankind have to be produced in the Court of Allah. Because orbit of all things is on God Almighty and He will decide their matters.

Ask of the Children of Israel how many a clear Signs We gave them! He who altereth the Grace of Allah after it hath come unto him (for him), lo! Allah is Severe in punishment.
Sal  Baniii-‘Is-raaa-‘iila  kam  ‘aataynaahum-min  ‘Aa-yatim-bayyinah.  Wa  many-yubaddil  ni’-matallaahi  mim-ba’-di  maa  jaaa-‘at-hu  fa- ‘innAllaaha  Shadiidul- ‘iqaab.

Lesson


It has been declared previously that God Almighty and His Angels (peace be upon them) came never openly close the the human beings. Moreover Allah Almighty has sent always His Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon them) for guidance of mankind out of them. In this verse this fact is being cleared from the history of the Children of Israel. God says: We sent many such Signs unto the children of Israel from which the truth of the existence of God Almighty, Truth and Teachings of His Messengers (peace be upon them) was manifest. But they put behind all those Signs. Allah Almighty honored them, but they proved that they were thankless. God Almighty bestowed a lot of kindnesses upon the Children of Israel; some of them are being stated here briefly:

·         They were set freedom from the oppression of Pharaoh. Pharaoh used to cause the slaughtering of the children of Israel and keep their daughters alive, take hard labor from them, disgrace and ruin them in all respect. Allah Almighty saved them from his tyranny.  

·         A glorious Prophet named Moses (peace be upon him) was sent by Him into them, who brought them out from the slavery of Pharaoh, fear and dominion of the Qabtiis.

·         Drowned their enemy Pharaoh into the sea before them.  

·         Kept them under the shadow of clouds during their period in the deserts of Sinai Valley, brought down Manna and Quail for their eating, flowed twelve springs of water.

·         Revealed Torah upon Prophet Moses (peace be upon him) for their guidance.

·         Settled them in their own Country Palestine.

·         Maintained a channel of Prophets (peace be upon them) among their race for a long time.

But, despite all these favors, the Children of Israel followed their personal desires. They turned their faces from Holy Scripture, revealed by Allah Almighty and deviated from His Commands. They remained busy as their mind desired. Allah Almighty sent upon them different kinds of wrath as punishment for the disobedience, so that; they should come toward the Straight Path. But even then, their scholars changed the words and meanings of the Commands of God Almighty, and made changes intentionally in the Holy Scripture. The public followed them blind. If these people will resist; even now; on their words and will not believe in the True and Last Word of Allah Almighty “Holy Qur’an”, they should remember! Allah Almighty is Severe in punishment and their end will be the same as it had of the previous nations.
