Wrong Hearing From The People Of The Scripture

LESSON # 462 FROM HOLY QUR’AN

Wrong Hearing From The People Of The Scripture
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter - 3)
Verses –186 of 200, Section –19 (Part – 4)

Assuredly ye will be tried in your property and in your persons, and ye will hear much wrong from those who were given the Scripture before you, and from the idolaters. But if ye persevere and ward off (evil), surely it is a work of strong determinations.        
Latubla-wunna  fiii  ‘am-waali-kum  wa  ‘anfusikum,  wa  latasma-‘unna  minallaziina  ‘uutul- Kitaaba  min-  qablikum  wa  minallaziina  ‘ashrakuuu  ‘azan-kasiiraa.  Wa  ‘in-tasbiruu  wa  tattaquu  fa-‘inna  zaalika  min  ‘azmil-‘umuur.   



Lesson

The Muslims have been addressed in this verse that, “As you have sacrificed earlier your property and your persons, and you were being tried, likewise you will be tried in both things in future too and you would have to sacrifice in each respect. Your life may be exposed to imminent danger at any time and you would have to risk it, you are wounded, you suffer imprisonment, Diseases and sickness attack you, your properties are destroyed and your near relatives slip away. You would have to bear different kinds of troubles and difficulties. You would have to hear many wrong and vexing talks from the People of the Scripture and the Idolaters. Remember that it is very necessary to have patience and God-fearing for passing through these entire trials. If you will stand face to face these severities with steadfastness and sobriety, then really it will be a work of strong determinations.

It has been known through a Saying of the Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) that this verse was revealed before the commencement of the Battle of Badr. The order regarding war for self-defense and slaying was revealed afterwards. However, if there is either battle or peace, it is compulsory in all conditions to adopt patience and God-fearing.

Another Saying of the Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) teaches us that this world is a paradise for the Infidels and prison for the Believers. Its reason is that Allah Almighty puts the Muslims in different trials to teach them the life of abstinence and piety. The Muslims fear from God Almighty, run away from (ward off) evil and spring towards the Goodness. On the contrary, telling a lie, backbiting, lending and borrowing money at the interest, trying to get gain in each matter and earning through black marketing seems (apparently) very easy to the Infidels and Hypocrites. Moreover, for the lawful earning, a true person has to pass through very difficult paths. The deniers of the truth oppose and hurt the good-natured people. But a person who is of good deeds, challenges all troubles and difficulties with patience and steadfastness. And he deserves the Paradise after bearing different trials from Allah Almighty. In short, actual secret of success in intricacies and calamities is hidden in two principles, which are Patience, steadfastness and God-fearing. The person who will produce these characteristics into him, surely he will succeed.
