Zaruu – (leave), it is a word of command and its origin is wazara, which means – to leave. Alphabetical letter “wa” was dropped, so it became tense of command, plural of which is zaruu and it has been used here.

Yul-hiduuna – {(those people who) blaspheme}. The origin of this word is ‘ilhaad, which has been derived from the word lahad. It means “impiety, irreligion, idol worship, disbelief, atheism and blasphemy etc.” A famous word “Mulhid” has been made from it also, which means “the individual who leaves the Truth and inclines unto the false, an infidel, an unbeliever, a free-thinker”.

It was narrated in the previous verse that some people become uninstructed and inattentive intentionally whereas they know all. They remain in the meditation of only the world. It has been described in this verse that the world is not useful for anyone. It is the greatest ignorance if someone forgets Allah Almighty due to being entangled in it.

It is commanded that many Fairest Names are of Allah Almighty. The mankind should invoke Him (God) by those Names. However, those people who use their sense in His Names, they choose a wrong way. You should leave them and have not any concern with them. They will be punished properly against their wicked acts.

Then, God Almighty commands: There is a nation from Our creatures who keep the Truth in view every time and establish justice in accordance with the Correct. This nation is the nation of Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), who are called Muslims.

Crooked trick in the Names of Allah Almighty is either “Accepting that authority or power in others and giving the name, which is an attribute of God Almighty only” or “Choosing the names of Allah Almighty according to own will” or “Daily worshiping of His Name for getting any unbecoming object”. In short, Allah Almighty should be called with only those Names which exist in Holy Qur’an and the Sayings of His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), and the supplication should be prayed according to that method and only for those purposes, which have been transcribed from the Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him).
