Surah ‘Aali- ‘Imraan (The Family of Imran -3), Stage – 1,
Verse – 137 & 138 of 200, Section 14 of 20, (Part – 4)
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
137. Systems have passed away before you, do but travel in the land and see the nature of the consequence for those who did deny (the messengers).
138. This is a declaration for mankind, a guidance and an admonition unto those who ward off (evil).
137. Qad khalat min- qablikum Suna-nun fasiiruu fil-‘arzi fan- zuruu kayfa kaana ‘aaqibatul-mukazzibiin.
138. Haazaa ba-yaanul-linnaasi wa hudanwa-wa maw-‘izatul- lil- muttaqiin.
It has been stated in these verses that many nations have passed away before the times of last Prophet, Muhammad (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam). Major incidents were happened and the Law of God Almighty has been manifested. Those people from the former nations, who gripped up their lions for enmity with the Prophets (peace be upon them) and falsified the truth, turned away from confirming and obedience of Allah Almighty and His Prophet (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam), they used to commit evils and wrong. How worse their end was? And those people, who followed the right and supported the Prophets (peace be upon them), how much peace and blessings were sent down upon them? If you have any doubt in it, then observe the signs of destruction of the disbelievers by traveling in the earth, which have been scattered everywhere even today.
The Muslims should learn also from the previous events and consequences. They should not be disappointed due to cruelties and oppression of the infidels or their casual defeat, because the Just shall overcome at last, and only the Muslims will conquer. The groups over groups of the people will take shelter in embrace of Islam very soon gradually. This practice of Allah Almighty has remained from the very beginning that the Victory is only of the Right.
These contents are being described in the Holy Qur’an. The people, who fear God Almighty, acquire guidance and advice, after listening to these subjects. Nevertheless, those persons, who do not have His fear in their hearts, they cannot reap any advantage from such advice.
The Holy Qur’an has prestige of universal guidance. It guides the human beings to find the Path, which has been lost by them, (it shows the Way of Guidance to every nation during every time). Incidents described in it show us also the Straight Path even today; the scholars may succeed by following them. Three characteristics of Holy Qur’an have been described especially in these verses:
· It has a particular Message for the people.
· It is Guidance for the human beings.
· It is a warning, admonition and source of guidance for the pious.
Those people, who falsify such Holy Scripture, they will remain unfortunate in the world as well as on the Day of Resurrection.
