Lesson # 382
Guidance is only for the believers and sincere people
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imraan (The Family of Imran - 3), Stage – 1,
Verse – 86 of 200, Section – 9 of 20, (Part – 3)
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
86. How shall Allah guide a people who disbelieved after their belief and (after) they bore witness that the Messenger is true and after clear proofs (of Allah’s Sovereignty) had come unto them. And Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk.
86. Kayfa yahDIllaahu qawman-kafaruu ba’-da ‘iimaanihim wa shahiduuu ‘annar-Rasuula haqqunw-wa jaaa-‘ahumul-Bayyinaat. WAllaahu laa yahdil-qawmaz-zaalimiin.
God Almighty has commanded in this verse that He will never guide the wrongdoers. Wrongdoers are those people who disbelieved after their belief. Neither they accepted the truth themselves, nor invited others for good disposition. In addition, their refusal became resistance for others to believe in.
Some people chose infidelity after recognizance of the Truth. They see the reality with their eyes, when they join their own people; they also affirm secretly that the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) is True. Bright proofs, open signs and clear glad tidings of his truth, sincerity and fidelity have reached them. Despite, their arrogance, envy and love of personal dignity have been preventing them from embracing Islam and leaving the infidelity.
It was common condition of the Jews and the Christians. How can it be hoped that either God Almighty will forgive them who are such obstinate and perverse Infidels, or bring them towards the Way of His Pleasure and lead them to reach the Paradise? It is not His principle to bestow the real success to the unjust, bigoted and disobedient tyrants.
The people, who embraced Islam, bore witness that the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) is true and after clear proofs (of God’s Sovereignty) had come unto them, they deserted from Islam and became renegade following the worldly ambitions, sensuality and luxury, their condition will be worse than the above categories. They will be rightful owners of the curse and punishment. Who will be blinder than a person who gets light but afterwards, openly says the darkness as light? Who will exalt him?
These people will be losers on the Day of Judgment. Biggest loss for them will be that they would have wasted even their principal (capital). Every human being has been born on the virtue and good fortune of the human nature. But the human being destroys his good nature by wrongdoing, flowing in the ambitions of shameful passions, wrong thoughts and disgusting desires. And he falls much down from the grade of humanity. It is the form of loss.
When such people tyrannize themselves, after knowing the truth and difference between good and bad, they choose the path of evil, and turn away from the Commands of God Almighty, then how can they be guided towards the straight path? They adopt perverseness due to their wrongdoings, are entangled in depravity and loss the real soul of the humanity. May Allah Almighty save us from the company of such people and their evils.
