99. مَّا عَلَى ٱلرَّسُولِ إِلَّا ٱلْبَلَٰغُ ۗ وَٱللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ مَا تُبْدُونَ وَمَا تَكْتُمُونَ

Commentary

The most important social principal of Islam is:
BIDDING THE GOOD & FORBIDDING THE EVIL”
‘Amr  bil  Ma’-ruuf  wa  nahii  ‘anil  munkar

Those matters are kept on different places in the Holy Qur’aan like these verses, which Allah Almighty desires to teach the humankind. From the beginning of this Chapter (Surah), some commands regarding some works to be done and some are forbidden as ‘Amr bil Ma’-ruuf wa Nahii ‘anil Munkar  (Bidding the Good and Forbidding the Evil) are being explained. It can be understood clearly by thinking into them deeply that Which the Way of our life is suitable?

Today, it is commanded: Know that Allah Almighty is Severe in punishment, and He also is Forgiving and Merciful. Then the same verse has been repeated that the duty of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) is only to convey the Message properly. Every matter of every individual is with Allah Almighty in future. He knows the open and secret deeds of every person.  We can understand clearly, if we deem that “The human being should understand well efficiently before starting one’s works that the Creator of entire works, the world and one’s own, is One, only Allah (God), Who is Mighty and Master of all creatures, and the entire are His servants and slaves. Neither can any person give anything to any other, and nor can anybody snatch but Allah. Without His order, neither can anyone harm someone, nor favor without His Will. So neither there is any need to be frightened from any person, nor want of flatter/worship to any creature. He will punish severely to the evildoers and is Forgiving for them, who pray before Him humbly and bow in front of Him hopelessly. The evils and sins are those acts and deeds, which have been forbidden by Him in Holy Qur’aan, revealed on His Last Messenger, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him). And the good works are those, which have been enjoined by Him to be done. Therefore, there is no purpose of our life other than that we should obey His commandments, do that what His Apostle (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) says, and refrain from that, from which He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) forbids us. That entire is useless which we do without or against His commandment.
