Lesson # 853 - No fear shall come upon the dwellers of the Garden
Lesson # 853 from the Noble Quran
No fear shall come upon the dwellers of the Garden
Surah ‘A’-RAAF(The Heights) – Chapter – 7)
Stage – 2, Verses – 46b to 49 of 206,
Section – 5 & 6 of 24 (Part - 8)
In the name ofAllah, the Beneficent, the
46b. And on the Heights are men who know them
all by their marks. And they call unto the dwellers of the Garden: Peace be
unto you! They enter it not although they hope (to enter).
47. And when their
eyes are turned toward the dwellers of the Fire, they say: Our Lord! Place us
not with the wrongdoing folk.
48. And the dwellers
on the Heights call unto men whom they know by their marks, (saying): What
did your multitude and that in which ye took your pride avail you?
49. Are these they
of whom ye swore that Allah would not show them mercy? (Unto them it hath
been said): Enter the Garden; no fear shall come upon you nor is it ye who
46b. Wa ‘alal-‘A’-RAAFI rijaaluny-ya’-rifuuna kullam bisii-maahum. Wa
naadaw ‘As-haabal-Jannati ‘an-
Salaamun ‘alay-kum. Lam
yad-khuluuhaa wa hum
Heights), it was described in the previous lesson that there will be a veil in
between the dwellers of the Garden and the dwellers of the Fire. That veil’s
name is ‘Al-‘A’-RAAF.
The name of this Surah (Chapter) has
been named due to this word. Its explanation was discussed in the beginning of
‘Az-zaalimiin – (wrongdoers),
this word is plural of Zaalim, which
has been derived from Zulm. Actual meaning
of the word zulm is “to deprive
anyone’s right, not to give someone that thing, which was required to be handed
him over. Zaalim means “tyrant,
oppressor, cruel, unjust. In every sin, one’s own right or the right of any
other is violated, so every sin is Zulm.
In between the
Garden and the Fire, some people will be standing on The Heights, who will be
looking the dwellers of the Garden entering and living in the Paradise and the dwellers
of the Fire in the Hell. These people will be hopeful of the Garden but, still
they would not have entered into it. Their situation is being narrated here.
commanded that those people who will be standing on the Heights, they will recognize
both groups from the marks of their faces. At first they will call unto the
dwellers of the Garden: Salaamun ‘alaykum
(Peace be unto you). After that, when they will see condition of the dwellers
of the Fire, they will seek protection of God Almighty and it will come out
from their mouth spontaneously: Our Lord! Place us not with the wrongdoing folk.
commanded that the people standing on the Height, will see some such people in
the Fire, whom they were acquainted. They will recognize them due to their
faces, appearance, marks and style. They will say to them: You used to slight
everyone and dance on the strength of your allies and patrons. Why do they not
set you free today using their tools and weapons etc.? You used to shrink from
incurring an obligation. Pharaoh (king of Egypt), Haman (name of his minister)
and Korah (“Qarun was one
of the people of Musa but he lorded it over them. We gave him treasures, the
keys alone to which were a heavy weight for a party of strong men.”(Surah Al Qasas 28:76))
like a gnat before you. Where are today your large armies with their baggage
and camp followers, your wealth and property, pride and haughtiness, those assistants
of yours, who used to dance on your indication? Those entire are not of use
today for you.
At the other
side, we see those people in the Garden, about whom you used to say: they are
useless. Are these really those people about whom you used to say swearing:
they are worthless and unprofitable people, how can they be blessed by Allah? Can
you imagine that those people live in the Garden, whereas the worthy, superior
and excellent people like you, who were jack of all trades and unrivaled, may
not go to the Garden? You used to say: the Heaven and the Hell are nothing but
only a deception, which is self-invented against us by the people good for
nothing, observing us in good condition in the world.
Today it has
been proved that they used to speak the Truth. They have received a Warrant
that they can go in the Garden wherever they wish. Such grief, sorrow, dreads
and fear have been finished, which they used to endure from the hands of
worldly people in the world. Unto them it has been said: Enter the Garden; no
fear shall come upon you nor is it ye who will grieve.
