Quran Chapter 5 – 65 & 66 (Pt-6, Stg-2) (L-712) - درس قرآن 

Correct Behavior

Surah MAAA-‘IDAH (The Table Spread) – Chapter – 5)

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim. 
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)


(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

It can be understood by thinking a little that the human being needs many things for living. It is clear that everyone has a right to get them. There can be two ways for acquiring necessary things. Either everyone should think only for own purpose and do not care for others, as you can see in dogs, or the other form is “the person, who obtains any important thing, should share it with others” as it can be observed in the crows, but the cock is ahead than the crow in this matter. Which extra quality in the cock than the crow can be seen, is that, if it looks any eatable, calls the hens, feeds them, but doesn’t take anything itself. However if the food is excessive, then it takes as per its requirement. It has also been observed in the small ants that they use to collect their food individually or collectively at one place. Then at the time of necessity, each of them uses to take from their hoard according to one’s need. And none of them says, “Take less because you did not work hard, and to the other, take more because you worked hard”. Islam is a standard-bearer of the second observance.

Though the human being is a dead and gone than a small ant in this matter? He should have so much sense that either he should let his weak and poor brother take according to his necessity or give him personally, and should take himself according to own requirement and do not violate.

But the Jews and the Christians have adopted the first observance as explained above in the example of small ants. They say, “All necessary things, required by the human being should be in our possession. Power and strength, wealth and property are our right. We should never let the poor and the feeble be powerful before us, so that, keeping them our necessitous, we may affect our purpose as much and as we wish by means of them.

The second observance, which belongs to Islam, remains the best at the end; however some difficulties may be borne in the beginning. Everything is going well in the beginning too, but it results ease and happiness completely in future. These true but harsh words have been described in these verses, because “The niggard who gives a quick refusal is better than the benevolent who procrastinates”.

Allah Almighty commands that if those, who say themselves “the People of the Scripture” had believed and warded off evil, then surely He would have remitted their sins from them, they might have gotten opportunity of ease and comfort in the world, and He would have brought them into Gardens of Delight on the Day of Resurrection. They would not have to do more because they had already the Heavenly Scriptures. If they would have acted upon them correctly then today, all of their matters were to be correct, because it has been written in their Scriptures clearly and their Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon Them) have caused to understand them that the Last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) will appear in the Arab. You should follow and obey Him (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him).

It is correct that some people of them are sensible and they acted upon their own Scripture and embraced Islam. But maximum people of them are doing such deeds, which are injurious to the humanity, and foundation of their livelihood depends upon the first observance, which wants to make the entire mankind selfish.
