Quran Chapter 11-47 (Pt-12, Stg-3) (L-1380) - درس قرآن

The knowledge and the ignorance

Surah Huud (Hud) - 11

BisMillaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

قَالَ رَبِّ إِنِّىٓ أَعُوذُ بِكَ أَنْ أَسْـَٔلَكَ مَا لَيْسَ لِى بِهِۦ عِلْمٌ وَإِلَّا تَغْفِرْ لِى وَتَرْحَمْنِىٓ أَكُن مِّنَ ٱلْخَٰسِرِينَ (47)
  
47.  He said: my Lord! Lo! In Thee do I seek refuge (from the sin) that I should ask of Thee that whereof I have no knowledge. And unless Thou forgive me and have mercy on me I shall be among the lost.               
47.  Qaala  Rabbi  ‘inniii  ‘a-‘uu-zu-bika  ‘an  ‘as-‘alaka  maa  lay-sa  lii  bihii  ‘ilm.  Wa  ‘illaa  Tag-fir-lii  wa  Tarhamniii  ‘akum-minal-khaa-siriin.    

Commentary

‘illaa – (unless), actually these are two words – ‘in and laa. ‘in means “if” and laa means “not”. In writing, both words have been jointed and the “n” is a silent letter.

Allah Almighty teaches Himself manners and principles to His chosen servants, protects and watches them every time specifically and properly, so that they may not be aloof even a little from the Right Path in any religious and moral affair, and they should be a pattern for others. Sometimes, He makes mention of these teachings in Holy Qur’an, so that for always, the wise people learn manners and principles from it according to their extent and they understand it also carefully that the Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon them) convey the people only those commandments which Allah Almighty teaches them. Therefore, their (peace be upon them) sayings are worthy of practice; just like the commandments of God Almighty.

In the previous verse, Allah Almighty caused to understand them that every matter is not capable that about it; either someone should ask of Him or pray for its provision. Way of praying and asking for any thing from Allah Almighty is the same as He has taught Himself.

In this verse, for whatsoever Noah (peace be upon him) applied, that is entirely in accordance with this instruction. He (peace be upon him) requested: O my Lord! Save me from it (the sin) that I should ask of You that which is against Your will or pray for such thing which You have not taught me. If You will not forgive me and have not mercy on me then I shall suffer a loss and be among the losers.
