Quran Chapter 10-104b (Pr-11, Stg-3) (L-1334) - درس قرآن
Commandment – Be of the Believers
Surah Younus (Jonah) (peace be upon him)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Yata-waffaa (He causes to die). This word is from ta-waffaa, which has been derived from wafaat. Wafaat means “the extinction of life, death, demise”. Tawaffaa means “to rise to the situation, to take over, to collect in full, to finish, causing to die”. It aims “to finish the worldly life of the mankind”.
God Almighty commands to His Messenger (grace, glory, blessing and peace be upon him) that He should say to the people: I don’t worship your self-invented deities (gods). I worship only One God; Allah, The Most High Who is Omnipotent, and everyone is helpless before Him. He gives life to whom He desires, then by finishing his life He picks him up from the world. Life and death are under His control. If you think for awhile in it, it will become compulsory for you to accept it. And helplessness of remaining things will be manifest before you like a shining day. And there will be no expedient save it that you should not believe in any other except Him. He (God) is your Rightful Worshipped. In the next verse, method of acquiring strong belief has been described.
By meditating in the verses of this Section, reality of Islam becomes obvious entirely. First step of entering in Islam is declaration of disgust from the gods; made by human hands. Those all deities are only imaginary pictures of mankind’s selfishness. He (human being) considers: I am all in all, therefore, my deity will be that whom shall I say my worshipped.
It has been described in the verse: It’s wrong. But your Worshipped is That Who will cause you to die when you time will be over. Second step is that you should prostrate before Him only and then; the entire life; should remain engaged in perfection of your Faith, so that your end should be happy.
