Lesson # 480
Surah ‘Aali- ‘Imraan (The Family of Imran -3),
Stage– 1, Verse – 160 of 200, Section 17 of 20, (Par – 4)
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
160. If Allah is your helper none can overcome you, and if He withdraw His help from you, who is there who can help you after Him? In Allah let believers put their trust.
160. ‘Iny-yansur-kumUllaahu falaa gaaliba lakum. Wa ‘iny-yakh-zulkum faman zallazii yan-surukum-mim- ba’-dih. Wa ‘alAllaahi falyata-wakkalil-Mu’-minuun.
The Messenger of Allah Almighty (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) was commanded in the previous verse, “Put thy trust in Allah”. Now it is being described in this verse, “Trustworthy is only Allah, Who is the Mighty, the Overcoming”.
Which error was committed by the Muslims during the Battle of ‘Uhud, that was forgiven by Allah Almighty, as well as He also recommended letting them forgiven too by the Messenger of Allah Almighty (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam). After that, they are being advised, “O Believers! You should neither be taken in deception of others; nor be fallen into the trap of Infidels and Hypocrites and nor impress your false and astray imaginations on your minds, but trust in Allah Almighty. If Allah is your helper, none can overcome you as you have observed during the Battle of Badr that the Idolaters were more than threefold from you. You did not have much arms and war equipment comparing to them. But Allah Almighty helped you and fortunately you won the non-ordinary war in un-expecting circumstances.
It has been described many times ago that victory and prevalence neither depends on number of Army personnel, nor on abundance of war equipment, but its necessary condition is strong and firm belief and faith in Allah Almighty, and most of all the personal Bounty and Mercy of Allah Almighty. Those soldiers, who love their Belief more than their lives and all worldly valuables, they do not hesitate to sacrifice their lives for Its superiority. Their arms become manifold powerful and stable in their intentions more than usual.
An Infidel or Idolater soldier, who fights only for worldly goods, he knows on no account to sacrifice his life. Where ever he felt danger for his life; ran away by leaving everything. Such people are coward and weak. They do not have cease of mind and strength of their arms goes to end. Whether they are in majority, (have abundant fighters), they would be like a flock of the sheep. It is duty of the Believers that they should keep complete trust in Allah Almighty, endeavor and try their best, entrust their matters and make over the result to Allah Almighty.
