Lesson # 859 from the Noble Quran
Call on God in fear and hope
Surah ‘A’-RAAF(The Heights) – Chapter – 7)
Stage – 2, Verse –56 of 206, Section
– 7 of 24 (Part - 8)
In the name ofAllah, the Beneficent, the
Work not confusion
in the earth after the fair ordering (thereof) and call on Him in fear and
hope. Lo! The mercy of Allah is nigh unto the good.
discussed in the previous lessons that this universe, which we see before us,
it all has been created by Allah Almighty and His Command is obeyed by everything,
which exists in it. He has appointed a proper way for every creature and that
has been running under His control and in accordance with His Command.
should think too that he is a creature of Allah Almighty also and for him, the
Creator has determined a Divine Law for living in the world. Other all things cannot
leave that path and law, which Allah Almighty has fixed for them, but the human
being has more appearance of the power of choice and intention than all other
should adopt the way by recognizing the Divine Law with careful consideration,
and he can be driven back from that path also. This earth, on which the mankind
has been dwelling, is running according to its prescribed Rules and Natural
Law, and it will keep its footing until Allah Almighty desires to hold it.
There is one kind
of existing only on the earth i.e. the Mankind, who can ruin or decorate its
form for himself to some extent. If the mankind went according to that Law,
which has been prescribed for him, then the condition of this earth would remain
arranged. But if he violated this law, then he will mar the condition of the
earth for himself.
The Devil, who
is mortal woe of the human being, will try to repel him from the law by
seducing, and his falling back from it will be cause of disturbance on the
earth. In short, obeying the Commands of Allah Almighty is the fair ordering
and violating the Divine Law is mischief on the earth, which means infringement.

being should be caused to understand the correct path. So, that has been
manifest very clearly upon him. Now it is his duty that he should follow the
instructions mentioned in that law, which has been prescribed for him (i.e.
guidance mentioned in Holy Quran), otherwise a disturbance will be excited on
the earth and there will be harm in it for him. For him, it is the method of
calling upon Allah Almighty that he should obey His Commands and follow the
instructions prescribed for him in the Divine Law, and disobey Him never by
coming into the deception of Satan.
being should fear displeasure and wrath of Allah Almighty, and be hopeful of
His Mercy. Mankind should be known every time that the Mercy of Allah Almighty is
nigh unto those people, who do good works in accord with the Divine Law and who
do acts of Kindness with one another.
