Lesson # 411
Deliverance in the Court of God Almighty
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imraan (The Family of Imran - 3), Stage – 1,
Verse – 116 of 200, Section – 12 of 20, (Part – 4)
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
116. Lo! the riches and the progeny of those who disbelieve will not avail them aught against Allah; and such are rightful owners of the Fire. They will abide therein forever.
116. ‘Innal-laziina kafaruu lan-tugniya ‘anhum ‘amwaa-luhum wa laaa ‘awlaaduhum-minal-laahi shay-‘aa. Wa ‘ulaaa-‘ika ‘As-haabun-Naar. Hum fiihaa khaaliduun.
After describing about the righteous people, now the discussion about the Infidels begins. Allah Almighty has commanded in this verse that only the Belief is a thing, which will be useful in the World and on the Day of Resurrection. Nothing of the worldly things like wealth and property, children and family etc. will be helpful for the human being. For these things, someone must not deteriorate his/her Hereafter.
This matter has already been explained that the biggest reason of inclination towards the infidelity and denial by the human being is that he comes in the deception of wealth and property, land and assets and the children. He loves them and keeps them very dare. And he forgets the difference between right and wrong being in love with them. Sometimes he becomes ready to sacrifice honesty, truth, justice and virtue. He considers that piles of wealth and property, sons and relatives will be useful for him everywhere. These things will put off his every calamity. This immature person does not understand that these entire things are mortal. Their life is only for a few days. These all are entirely inferior and unreal things, which will not provide him any support. The real thing is the Wealth of the Belief, which is sustainable and eternal, due to which humankind attains respect and honor in the world, as well as desires fame and success in the Day of Resurrection.
Today we observe many such people around us who pride on their wealth, who boast on abundance of their children, who are proud of their assets, land and factories. They consider that their religion and belief are only these things, and being arrogant due to these things, they forget their Creator and His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him). They laugh at good and simpleton people. The last abode of such people is the Fire of the Hell, in which they will be burnt forever.
As though, mankind’s success and failure; reward and punishment of the Day of Resurrection, will be according to everyone’s personal deeds. The deeds of this world will be weighed in the Balance of Justice on the Last Day. Name and lineage will be useless.
