Lesson # 839 from the Noble Quran
Perceiving the matters of wrongdoing
Surah ‘A’-‘RAAF(The Heights) – Chapter – 7)
Stage – 2, Verses – 29 &
30 of 206, Section – 3 of 24 (Part - 8)
In the name ofAllah, the Beneficent, the
29. Say: My Lord
enjoineth justice. And set your faces upright (toward Him) at every place of
worship and call upon Him, making religion pure for Him (only). As He brought
you into being, so will return ye (unto Him).
30. A party hath He
led aright, while error hath just hold over (another) party. For lo! They choose
the devils for protecting friends instead of Allah and deem that they are

Qist – (Justice,
equity), that middle way, in which, there is no fear of going astray, a Straight
Path without crookedness.
Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) is being
commanded that He should say the people: My Lord enjoins to go straight forward
on the path of justice and human nature.
has guided the Muslims that when they worship, they should set their faces
upright, toward Him at every place of worship and call upon Him, being loyal to
Him only. They should never obey the false customs, traditions and nor be
deceived by the sayings of any wrongdoer, because Allah Almighty will bring
entire humankind into being again after death and everyone will come only in Allah’s
and those protecting friends, who mislead, will not be of use in the Hereafter.
Only those people will be successful in the Court of Allah Almighty, who
worship Him purifying their inner and outer (both) with the intention of only His
pure obedience and don’t care for any other against His Command.
has explained the Way of Guidance very clearly through His Scriptures revealed
upon His Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon Them). Then some people desire
to go Straight Way by perceiving It. Allah Almighty leads them toward the Right
Path. Whereas, there are some such people, the straying has settled in whose
chosen the devils for protecting friends giving up the Path which leads unto
Allah Almighty. The devils have put them on the path of error and infused them
that: the correct path is the same which they have adopted. How can those people
give up errors, who have taken up “the wrong” with their mind “the right”? These
are the people, error has just hold and subdued over whom.
signifies that the people who accept their error and mistake immediately,
whenever anyone cautions them about it, and ask Allah Almighty for forgiveness like
Adam (peace be upon Him) (Our Lord! We have wronged ourselves. If Thou forgive
us not and have not mercy on us, surely we are of the lost) – they are saved
from the straying.
