Lesson # 930 - Constitution of Mercy is for them who ward off evil
Lesson # 930 from the Noble Quran
Constitution of Mercy is for them who ward off
Surah ‘A’-RAAF(The Heights) – Chapter – 7)
Stage – 2, Verse – 156b of 206, Section – 19 of
24 (Part - 9)
In the name ofGod, the Beneficent, the
He said: I smite with My punishment whom I will and My
mercy embraceth all things. Therefore I shall ordain it for those who ward off
(evil) and pay the poor-due, and those who believe Our Revelations.
‘usiibu bihii man ‘ashaaa’. Wa
Rahmatii wasi-‘at kulla
shay’. Fasa-‘aktubuhaa lillaziina
yatta-quuna wa yu’-tuunaz-Zakaata walla-ziina
hum- bi-‘AayaatiNaa yu’-minoon.
commanded to Prophet Moses (peace be upon His) after hearing His supplication: My
wrath and My Mercy is not specified for any particular nation, class, sect,
tribe or community. Its concern is with personal deeds of every individual.
Mercy is for
everyone and every time in any form, but punishment is only for those people
whose acts become worst entirely. Anguish is not subdued upon anyone at every
time. However, My Mercy embraces every creature at every time.
You (Moses – peace be upon Him) wish for Your nation i.e. the Children of
Israel, that they should remain superior to all other people in the world as
well as in the Hereafter and gain the respect of both worlds, so We have
specified this Mercy for only those people who try to abstain from ill-deeds
having fear of Allah Almighty, who pay some portion of their wealth to the
needy and poor people (poor-due and alms), and who know Us (God Almighty) by
reciting Our Revelations and observing Our Tokens and believe; that aim of
Allah Almighty to manifest the Revelations and Token is; that the mankind
should recognize Him. Human being should accept Him Creator, Lord and Master of
own and entire creatures.
It found that existence
of anything in the world is not possible without His (God’s) common Mercy,
whereas, the special Mercy, which means goodness of both worlds, superiority
and respect of this world and the Hereafter, that is only for the human being,
but it is specified with some conditions, some of which are as under:
·Being saved from the evil
deeds. It means that movements like animals, that is
to say; jumping, merry-making, fighting, wandering uncontrolled and freely,
eating and drinking like the cattle, fulfilling the desire, takes the humankind
away from specific Mercy of Allah Almighty.
·Hoarding not the wealth, but
paying out from it a portion for the poor and helpless people. It aims that
ambition of the wealth is basis of disgrace and misery.
·Recognizing Allah Almighty by
listening to His Revelations and observing His Signs and believing in Him. Without belief
in Allah Almighty, human being cannot attain peace.
