Fallaziina ‘aamanuu bihii
wa ‘azza-ruuhu wa
nasa-ruuhu wattaba-‘un-Nuural-laziii ‘unzila
ma-‘ahuuu, ‘ulaaa-‘ika humul-Muf-lihuun.
‘Azza-ruuhu – (honored him),
it is a past tense. Origin of this word is ta’-ziir,
which has been derived from ‘azara. ‘Azara
means “shelter, strength”. Ta’-ziir
means “to make someone strong, to strengthen, to protect and support anyone by considering
that he is great.
‘An-Nuuru – (the Light),
here it aims Divine Revelation, inspiration, in which, Holy Qur’an and the entire Sayings (‘Ahaadith) of the last Messenger of
Allah Almighty; Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) are
‘Al-Muf-lihuun – this word
has come at various places in the Holy Qur’-an.
Its origin is falaah, which means
agriculture and its production. A word ‘aflaah
has been derived from it also, which means “reaping advantage fully by
cultivating; to get full production. Here it aims “to succeed”.
Summary of all
previous things has been given in this part of the verse. At first, it was
told: The essence of the Guidelines of God’s last Messenger (grace, glory,
blessings and peace be upon Him) is that He enjoins on the people that which is
right and forbids them that which is wrong. And He (grace, glory, blessings and
peace be upon Him) makes lawful for them all fine, pure and advantageous things
for eating and drinking, and prohibits for them only the foul i.e. impure,
pernicious, filthy and stinking things; that use of those is unlawful. Which commands
were burden, difficult, rigorous and like fetters in the earlier religions, He (grace,
glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) replaced them and made easy and simple
as a relief for the people.
glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) did not command for these all
concessions at His own, but this entire is by means of Divine Revelations
because He personally does know neither reading and nor writing. Whatever He
says, is taught by Allah Almighty. While situation is like this; that; whatever
He says, is good, then what did the result come out?
It has been
commanded in this verse that this result comes out by bringing all together which
has been described above, that; those people who will accept the Sayings of
this Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) and believe in
it that He is true, they will protect Him, support Him, honor Him and help Him
wholeheartedly. And they will act according to those Instructions which He has (taught
Him by means of Divine Revelation). No doubt that the success will kiss their
feet and they will gain victory in every field of life and the Hereafter.
It is found
from this verse clearly that Islam is not partial of any particular group, sect
or class. It is biased of its principles only. And it takes responsibility of
success, salvation and victory in this world and the Hereafter for them who
follow its instructions.
which, Prophet Moses (peace be upon Him) was supplicating for His nation’s
highest degree, bowed His head before this decision of Allah Almighty and
instructed to the Children of Israel that they should act upon these principles
and cooperate with the Last Messenger of
Allah Almighty, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him).
