Lesson # 470
Dignity of Islam
Surah ‘Aali- ‘Imraan (The Family of Imran -3),
Stage– 1, Verse – 151 of 200, Section 16 of 20, (Par – 4)
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
151. We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve because they ascribe unto Allah partners, for which no warrant hath been revealed. And their habitation is the Fire. And hapless the abode of the wrongdoers.
151. Sanulqii fii quluu-billa-ziina kafarur-ru’-ba bimaaa ‘ashrakuu Billaahi maa lam yunazzil bihii sultaanaa. Wa ma’-waahumun-Naar. Wa bi’-sa maswaz-zaalimiin.
The Muslims were caused to receive grievous hurt in the Battle of ‘Uhud and they suffered from confusion, which was a test for them. They were told that they would not be entitled to proceed into the Paradise until they pass through the necessary trials and Allah Almighty does not deem that who have perfect Belief in Him and sacrifice his life in His way.
Now Allah Almighty says, “We shall cast such terror and dignity of yours in the hearts of infidels that they will not have courage to turn back on their heels and attack; despite you are injured and weak. Accordingly, the same happened. Commander-in-Chief of the Infidels’ Army Abu-Sufiaan fled from the battlefield with his Army. In the way, he thought also, “we have left thus a tired and injured Army. Let’s go back and kill them”. But the terror of the Right and the fear of Islam were dropped down as much in his heart, that he could not get courage to act upon his intention. On the contrary, the Muslim crusaders pursued them unremittingly up to “Hamra’- al-Asad” and after that time, they did never provide them any opportunity to happen the incident like ‘Uhud.
In fact, hearts of the disbelievers are weak whether they try hard, because they worship the creature leaving The Creator. Real strength into humankind comes with the help of Allah Almighty, of which the infidels and the disbelievers are deprived. Until the Muslims remained as true Muslims, their threat remained in the hearts of the Infidel. Even today too, in spite of the fall of Muslims, all infidel powers of the world are afraid of this sleeping injured lion. Now there is a dire need that the Muslims should make strong their powers of Belief, call Allah Almighty for help and success, follow the commandments of last Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) and get their lost power with effect from the beginning.
Sanulqii – (We shall cast), its origin is laqii and ‘alqaa is its source, which means ‘to cast’, particularly to cast something in the heart. “S” means ‘very soon’.
Sultaanaa – (any warrant), usually we use the word Sultan for King, but in Arabic language, it is used for warrant and proof.
