Lesson # 396
He indeed is guided unto a Right Path, who holds fast to God
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imraan (The Family of Imran - 3), Stage – 1,
Verse – 101 of 200, Section – 10 of 20, (Part – 4)
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
101. How can you disbelieve, when it is ye unto whom Allah’s Revelations are recited, and His Messenger is in your midst? And he who holdeth fast to Allah, he indeed is guided unto a right path.
101. Wa kayfa tak-furuuna wa ‘antum tutlaa ‘alaykum ‘Aayaa-tUllaahi wa fiikum RasuuluH. Wa many-ya’-tasim BIllaahi fa-qad hudiya ‘ilaa Siraatim-Musttaqiim.
It has been described in this verse that the nation like Muslims cannot become disbeliever after having faith, because the Messenger of God Almighty exists between them, who causes to hear them the Word of Allah Almighty, which increases their Belief. He recites the Revelations of God Almighty. It is the fact that the individual, whosoever holds fast to Allah Almighty leaving entire other paths and whosoever places confidence and trust in Him wholeheartedly, no power can foil up or down him from the Straight Path.
The ancient lineages of Madinah had very severe enmity with one another before Islam. They used to decide on a war due to very ordinary matters and the bazaar of bloodshed used to be hot (angry). When the Last Messenger of Allah Almighty, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) immigrated from Makkah to Madinah, then they were became fortunate. The enmity among the tribes, which had been running since hundreds of the years, changed in to friendship due to teachings of Islam and blessing of the company of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). Moreover, very strong brotherly relations established between them.
The Jews of Madinah became very unpleasant due to such union of these dynasties and families, and being united together for the service and protection of Islam. They appointed a person, to make mention wherever the people of both the lineages assemble about “The War of Bu-‘aas” (which was fought between the two famous tribes). He began reading the poetry to remind about the war, when he found opportunity to cause to hear the both parties.
As soon as the people listened to this poetry, then with in no time, a spark of anger was inflamed and both the tribes began to equip their weapons for the war. By chance Messenger of God Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) reached there with some companions (may Allah be pleased with them). He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) commanded, “O Muslims! Fear from Allah Almighty. I am in your midst, then how is this uncivil calling out aloud? Allah Almighty guided you. Do you want to return from the light of guidance immediately after Belief, towards the darkness of ignorance”? As soon as, they listened to the voice of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), then entire rings of the devil’s net broke one by one. The entire people threw their weapons and began weeping and embracing one another. They all understood that it was their enemies’ wickedness, from which; they would have to be careful in future.
