Quran Chapter 5 – 97 (Pt-7, Stg-2) (L-741) - درس قرآن 

The House of God at Makkah is an Asylum of security for mankind

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.)

97. جَعَلَ ٱللَّهُ ٱلْكَعْبَةَ ٱلْبَيْتَ ٱلْحَرَامَ قِيَٰمًا لِّلنَّاسِ وَٱلشَّهْرَ ٱلْحَرَامَ وَٱلْهَدْىَ وَٱلْقَلَٰٓئِدَ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ لِتَعْلَمُوٓا۟ أَنَّ ٱللَّهَ يَعْلَمُ مَا فِى ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَمَا فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ وَأَنَّ ٱللَّهَ بِكُلِّ شَىْءٍ عَلِيمٌ
97.  Allah has appointed the Ka’-bah, the Sacred House, an asylum of security for mankind, and the Sacred Month and the offerings and the collard animals (of sacrifice). That is so that ye may know that Allah knoweth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth, and that Allah is Knower of all things.    
97.  Ja-‘alAllaahul-Ka’-batal-Bay-tal-Haraama  qi-yaa-mal-linnaasi  wash-Shahral-Haraama  wal-had-ya  wal-qalaa-‘id.  Zaalika  lita’-lamuuu  ‘annAllaaha  ya’-lamu  maa  fis-samaawaati  wa  maa  fil-‘arzi  wa  ‘annAllaaha  bikulli  shay-‘in  ‘Aliim.               


There are some commands of Allah Almighty about Ka’bah in this verse, which need special attention of everyone: “This Sacred House, which is called Ka’-bah (Inviolable Place of Makkah), should be honored properly, as well as those Pilgrims, who come here for the purpose of Hajj (Pilgrimage) and their offerings and the collard animals of sacrifice should be regarded favorably”.

It has been described that Allah Almighty has appointed His Sacred House and the Inviolable Place of Makkah named (Ka’-bah), a place of refuge, shelter and security for the life of the entire mankind. He has fixed also for the entire human beings’ source of living and cheer, to the Sacred Month of Pilgrimage and those deeds, which are performed during the days of Hajj, like bringing the offerings and the collard animals (to be distinguished easily) of sacrifice to Ka’-bah with pump and show.

These deeds were already tokens of safety and peace, and signs of stoppage against disturbance and mischief. It is so much clear foretelling that, without Allah Almighty, Who is Knower of all things, nobody can tell. And as long as the time will be over, you will be able to know slowly and gradually its truth and you will recognize that certainly Allah Almighty knows all the secrets of whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth. He is, Who determined the Ka’-bah as a Ground of life for the world. The Secret of the world’s excellence and stability is hidden in His pleasure and salutation only.
