Lesson # 948 - None should follow falsehood
Lesson # 948 from the Noble Quran
None should follow falsehood
Surah ‘A’-RAAF(The Heights) – Chapter – 7)
Stage – 2, Verses – 173 & 174 of 206,
Section – 22 of 24 (Part - 9)
In the name ofGod, the Beneficent, the
173. Or lest ye
should say: (It is) only (that) our fathers ascribed partners to Allah of old
and we were (their) seed after them. Will Thou destroy us on account of that
which those who follow falsehood did?
174. And thus We
detail the Revelations that haply they may return.

described in the previous verse that (God says): “We made everyone of the
Children of Adam testify of themselves before creating them that I am their
Lord”, and now by means of this Qur’an,
they have been being reminded their covenant, so that, on the Day of
Resurrection, they should not bring forward any excuse that neither any
covenant is in their remembrance and nor any Individual reminded them.
excuse of any human being will not be acceptable because by means of this
verse, everyone is being reminded clearly about the first covenant made by all
souls. There is one more excuse which can be made by every individual i.e. “Our
fathers taught us plurality with their practices. We were their children, so we
could learn only that which they taught. What is our fault? Nab them if You desire
to nab, because they made the wrong way current. Why should we pay the penalty
of their error?” This verse is explaining the same matter.
commanded: We have said clearly that every human being has made the covenant
individually that “We will accept You (God) only as our Lord. Therefore, excuse
of any individual that “The Plurality was made current by our fore-fathers, we
were their followers only” is not pardonable.
It has been
commanded in the verse after this: We set the same way that We detail the True
Words in the verses of Holy Qur’an,
so that every human being should meditate into them, and if one is going
astray, should return towards the Straight Path. It appeared from this lesson
that ascribing plurality by imitating others, is also punishable as it is
committed by oneself, because every individual is responsible in the matter of
religion, that one should inquire at one’s own without thinking about one’s
relatives, members of family, friends, tribe or nation, and one should believe
that “God is my Lord, none is His partner or co-sharer”.
In Arab, there
were two kinds of people, the People of the Scripture and the polytheists. They
both were not ready to leave the customized religions of their fore-fathers,
tribes and dynasties separately. They were caused to hear this Message that
they both were treacherous and faithless to their word. Every human being
should learn from it that Islam, which teaches, “God is One”, is the actual and
natural religion of the mankind.
