Suratun-Nisaaa’ (The Women) – Chapter – 4)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوٓا۟ ءَامِنُوا۟ بِٱللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِۦ وَٱلْكِتَٰبِ ٱلَّذِى نَزَّلَ عَلَىٰ رَسُولِهِۦ وَٱلْكِتَٰبِ ٱلَّذِىٓ أَنزَلَ مِن قَبْلُ وَمَن يَكْفُرْ بِٱللَّهِوَمَلَٰٓئِكَتِهِۦ وَكُتُبِهِۦ وَرُسُلِهِۦ وَٱلْيَوْمِ ٱلْءَاخِرِ فَقَدْ ضَلَّ ضَلَٰلًۢا بَعِيدًا (136
136. O ye who believe! Believe in Allah and His Messenger and the Scripture which He hath revealed unto His Messenger, and the Scripture which He revealed aforetime. And whoso disbelieveth in Allah and His angels and His Scriptures and His messengers and the Last Day, he verily hath wandered far astray.
136. Yaaa-‘ayyu-hallaziina ‘aa-manuu ‘aaminuu Billaahi wa RasuuliHii wal-Kitaa-billazii nazzala ‘alaa RasuuliHii wal-Kitaa-billazii ‘anzala min-qabl. Wa many-yakfur Billaahi wa malaaa-‘ikatiHii wa KutubiHii wa RusuliHii wal-Yawmil- ‘Aakhiri faqad zalla zalaalam- ba-‘iidaa.
‘Aa-manuu – (the person, who believed). ‘Aaminuu – (Believe in). The first word has been used for ‘the past tense’ and in the second word; it is being commanded ‘to have belief’. Base of both words is‘Iimaan (Belief), which means, “To accept any fact with tongue and believe in it heartily. The Believers are being commanded that they should believe. It aims: O people! (who admit with tongue)! Put Faith also in Allah Almighty heartily and believe purely.
Nazzala – (revealed), its origin is Tanziil, which means ‘to alight slowly and tenderly', as ’the Holy Qur’aan was revealed in about twenty three years tenderly and slowly’. ‘Anzala – (revealed), its base is the word ‘anzaal, which means ‘revealed all at once’, as all other heavenly Scriptures were revealed all at once.
It was commanded in the previous verse, “Speak the truth, and cooperate with the justice (whether that is against anyone). But these entire matters are impossible until the Belief is weak and the Faith is not perfect. Therefore, it is being instructed that you should believe in Allah Almighty wholeheartedly. Mere words are not useful.
Along-with it, believe in the Scripture of Allah Almighty, Holy Qur’aan also wholeheartedly considering it a True Holy Book, and have faith heartily in that, which is written in it and act in accord with its instructions. Have belief too in those Scriptures as true Holy Books of Allah Almighty, which were revealed before Holy Qur’aan. However, only those commands of old Scriptures are practicable, which have been sustained by this Last Scripture i.e. Holy Qur’aan. Other entire matters, which exist into them, have not remained practicable after the revelation of Holy Qur’an. Acting upon the commandments of Holy Qur’aan, the Last Scripture is necessary now. Because all good matters, which were mentioned in those Scriptures, exist in It.
The person, who will not believe in Allah Almighty, His Angels and Messengers (peace be upon Them), His Scriptures and the Day of Resurrection, his/her belief will not be acceptable. He/she should not consider sufficient; claim of belief by tongue only, but they should strengthen their faith in Allah Almighty and entire others, which have been described above and obey every command of Allah Almighty.
