Quran Chapter 11-46 (Pt-12, Stg-3) (L-1379) - درس قرآن

Story of Noah and his son is for our guidance

Surah Huud (Hud) - 11


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

قَالَ يَٰنُوحُ إِنَّهُۥ لَيْسَ مِنْ أَهْلِكَ إِنَّهُۥ عَمَلٌ غَيْرُ صَٰلِحٍ فَلَا تَسْـَٔلْنِ مَا لَيْسَ لَكَ بِهِۦ عِلْمٌ إِنِّىٓ أَعِظُكَ أَن تَكُونَ مِنَ ٱلْجَٰهِلِينَ

From the commandment of God Almighty, which He addressed to Noah (peace be upon him) that “O Noah! Your son (Yam or Kan’an) is not of your household, he is of evil conduct”, such false thought has been rendered null and void, in which; the People of the Scripture had been entangled, and till today, they and many other people have fallen into the same deception.

The People of the Scripture had forgotten many commandments, even then they used to acquiesce in the Day of Resurrection, as well as they used to believe in the Abodes of the Blessed and the Infernal (the Heaven and the Hell), they were not deniers of the Reward and the Punishment in the Hereafter. But they were proud of their super-eminence relating to family.

The Children of Israel used to say to the Muslims: We are children of Prophets, there is no harm; if we commit even any sin, our forefathers will cause us to excuse. If we would be punished in the Hell, that would be for only a few days. Why their children will be left in the Hell whose forefathers have so much higher ranks; as ours? They (our forefathers) were intimate and beloved of God. Why their descendants would not be admitted and beloved?

The Christians used to say: our recommendatory is Jesus Christ (peace be upon him), who himself is son of God (Let us flee to God). He sacrificed his life for us. Certainly he will cause to forgive us whether we commit any sin.

Holy Qur’an has refuted above mentioned both kinds of false thoughts with full detail and clearness, so that the Muslims should not be entangled in such error that relationship with a person of higher grade is sufficient for deliverance of any mankind. The same has been caused to understand here in the story of Noah (peace be upon him).

It has been made clear in Surah ‘Al-Jaasiah that none will be relative of any other on the Day of Resurrection save those people who escape from sins in the world and do good works. Moreover, evildoers will be enemies of one another. Neither genealogy will be useful there and nor the caste of any individual will have any importance. Last Messenger of Allah Almighty Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) said to his daughter Fatimatuz-Zuhra (Allah be pleased with her) clearly: O Fatimah! You should not think that being my daughter will be cause of your deliverance. You also would have to do good works, obey and worship Allah Almighty.

It has been commanded in Surah Luqmaan clearly: O People! Fear Allah, give up committing sins and manage to save yourselves from misfortunes of that Day when neither the father will be able to save his son and nor the son to his father.
