Juz 13, Ar-Ra'd, Verse 001
المر تِلْكَ آَيَاتُ الْكِتَابِ وَالَّذِي أُنْزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِنْ رَبِّكَ الْحَقُّ وَلَكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَالمر [ Alif-Laam-Meem-Ra ] - 'Alif-Laam-Meem-Ra' is known as ‘Solemn Verse' (Ayat-e-Muqatta'at - آیتِ مقطعات).Fourteen Arabic alphabets have been used, in varied combinations, in 14 ‘Solemn Verses' (Ayaat-e-Muqatta'at - آیاتِ مقطعات) in the form of initials of 29 Chapters (سورة) of holy Quran. Alif-Laam-Meem-Ra ( المر) is one of them.Since Quran is 'Mubeen' (الْمُبِينِ); its description is clear and manifest. The meanings of all the verses of Quran, including 'Solemn Verses' (آیاتِ مقطعات) are surely known to its principle addressee, ie., Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم). It is also likely that Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) has informed the meanings of these Verses to some of his Sahabah and Awliya Allah.We believe in whatever is meant by the 'Solemn Verses' (آیاتِ مقطعات) by Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) and His Apostle Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم).Since we have been commanded to read the Quran carefully and try to understand the significance of every verse of the Quran, we do ponder over these verses. And when we think, by focusing our attention towards Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) and His Apostle Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) for guidance, it comes to our mind that the 'Solemn Verses' (آیاتِ مقطعات) are actually the 'Solemn Titles of Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) given by Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) throughout the Quran. Our understanding is based on the fact that Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) has addressed Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) in the Quran by specific names, like Muzzammil (مزمل - O' beloved who covers self in a coverlet), Muddassir (مدثر - O' beloved, who covers self in a bed sheet). With this understanding, it is most likely that Prophet’s (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) other names / titles have been mentioned in Quran by denoting certain initials/alphabets.تِلْكَ آَيَاتُ الْكِتَابِ وَالَّذِي أُنْزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِنْ رَبِّكَ الْحَقُّ وَلَكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يُؤْمِنُونَ [ These are the verses of the Book; and what has been revealed to you from your Lord is the truth, but most of the people do not believe.]
Juz 13, Ar-Ra'd, Verse 002اللَّهُ الَّذِي رَفَعَ السَّمَوَاتِ بِغَيْرِ عَمَدٍ تَرَوْنَهَا ثُمَّ اسْتَوَى عَلَى الْعَرْشِ وَسَخَّرَ الشَّمْسَ وَالْقَمَرَ كُلٌّ يَجْرِي لِأَجَلٍ مُسَمًّى يُدَبِّرُ الْأَمْرَ يُفَصِّلُ الْآَيَاتِ لَعَلَّكُمْ بِلِقَاءِ رَبِّكُمْ تُوقِنُونَ [ It is Allah who raised the skies without support, as you can see, then assumed His throne, and subjcted the sun and the moon (so that) each runs to a predetermined course. He disposes all affairs, distinctly explaining every sign that you may be certain of the meeting with your Lord. ]
Juz 13, Ar-Ra'd, Verse 003وَهُوَ الَّذِي مَدَّ الْأَرْضَ وَجَعَلَ فِيهَا رَوَاسِيَ وَأَنْهَارًا وَمِنْ كُلِّ الثَّمَرَاتِ جَعَلَ فِيهَا زَوْجَيْنِ اثْنَيْنِ يُغْشِي اللَّيْلَ النَّهَارَ إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَآَيَاتٍ لِقَوْمٍ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ [ It is He who has spread out the earth and set in it firm mountains and streams, and of every fruit He has made in it two kinds. He draws the night’s cover over the day. There are indeed signs in that for the people who reflect. ]
Juz 13, Ar-Ra'd, Verse 004وَفِي الْأَرْضِ قِطَعٌ مُتَجَاوِرَاتٌ وَجَنَّاتٌ مِنْ أَعْنَابٍ وَزَرْعٌ وَنَخِيلٌ صِنْوَانٌ وَغَيْرُ صِنْوَانٍ يُسْقَى بِمَاءٍ وَاحِدٍ وَنُفَضِّلُ بَعْضَهَا عَلَى بَعْضٍ فِي الْأُكُلِ إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَآَيَاتٍ لِقَوْمٍ يَعْقِلُونَ [ In the earth are neighboring (diverse) terrains and grape gardens, farms, and date palms growing from the same root and from diverse roots, (all) irrigated by the same water, and We give some of them an advantage over others in flavor. There are indeed signs in that for the people who apply reason. ]
Juz 13, Ar-Ra'd, Verse 005وَإِنْ تَعْجَبْ فَعَجَبٌ قَوْلُهُمْ أَئِذَا كُنَّا تُرَابًا أَئِنَّا لَفِي خَلْقٍ جَدِيدٍ أُولَئِكَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا بِرَبِّهِمْ وَأُولَئِكَ الْأَغْلَالُ فِي أَعْنَاقِهِمْ وَأُولَئِكَ أَصْحَابُ النَّارِ هُمْ فِيهَا خَالِدُونَ [ If you are surprised, then (more) surprising is (their) speech (who say) 'Having turned to dust (after death) shall we be raised as a new creation?' They are the ones who deny their Lord, and they will have shackles around their necks. They are the inmates of Hell, where they will abide for ever. ]
Juz 13, Ar-Ra'd, Verse 006وَيَسْتَعْجِلُونَكَ بِالسَّيِّئَةِ قَبْلَ الْحَسَنَةِ وَقَدْ خَلَتْ مِنْ قَبْلِهِمُ الْمَثُلَاتُ وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَذُو مَغْفِرَةٍ لِلنَّاسِ عَلَى ظُلْمِهِمْ وَإِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَشَدِيدُ الْعِقَابِ [They ask you to hasten on the punishment in preference to the Mercy, while there has already occurred before them similar punishments (to what they demand). And verily your Lord awards forgiveness even on the injustices of the people. And no doubt, the torment of your Lord is severe. ]
Juz 13, Ar-Ra'd, Verse 007وَيَقُولُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لَوْلَا أُنْزِلَ عَلَيْهِ آَيَةٌ مِنْ رَبِّهِ إِنَّمَا أَنْتَ مُنْذِرٌ وَلِكُلِّ قَوْمٍ هَادٍ [ And the disbelievers say: ‘Why has a sign (miracle) not been sent down to this (Apostle ﷺ) from his Lord?’ (O' Apostle ﷺ) You are a warner and provider of guidance to every community (in the world). ]The polytheists during Prophet's (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) time did not realize that if a miracle is shown on their request, then they have to accept the truth. If they disbelieve after the miracle, they would be subjected to a massive punishment as had been the case with earlier nations.
Juz 13, Ar-Ra'd, Verse 008اللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ مَا تَحْمِلُ كُلُّ أُنْثَى وَمَا تَغِيضُ الْأَرْحَامُ وَمَا تَزْدَادُ وَكُلُّ شَيْءٍ عِنْدَهُ بِمِقْدَارٍ [ Allah knows what every female carries (in her womb), and what the wombs reduce and what they increase (during pregnancy) and everything is by (accurate) measure with Him, ]Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) knows everything before its creation and while it is being created if there is gestation in the process of creation. Everything is created with an accurate measure, which is known to Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ).Thus, there are three things involved in our creation, viz., (i) the 'human self' or 'person' (ذات), (ii) the human body (جسم), and (iii) human soul (روح).
It is in Quran - وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الْإِنسَانَ مِن سُلَالَةٍ مِّن طِينٍ - ثُمَّ جَعَلْنَاهُ نُطْفَةً فِي قَرَارٍ مَّكِينٍ - ثُمَّ خَلَقْنَا النُّطْفَةَ عَلَقَةً فَخَلَقْنَا الْعَلَقَةَ مُضْغَةً فَخَلَقْنَا الْمُضْغَةَ عِظَامًا فَكَسَوْنَا الْعِظَامَ لَحْمًا ثُمَّ أَنشَأْنَاهُ خَلْقًا آخَرَ ۚ فَتَبَارَكَ اللَّهُ أَحْسَنُ الْخَالِقِينَ [And verily We did create man from a quintessence (of clay). Then We placed him (as a drop of sperm) in a place of rest, firmly fixed. Then We made the sperm into a clot of congealed blood (zygote). Then of that clot We made a lump (fetus). Then We made out of that lump, bones and clothed the bones with flesh. Then We developed out of it another creature (by breathing life into it). So blessed be Allah, the most marvelous Creator.] ( Al-Mu’minun - 12-14).It is in Hadith - Abdullah bin Masud (رضئ الله تعالى عنه) narrates that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) said - إنَّ أحدكم يُجمَع خَلْقُه في بطن أمه أربعين يومًا، ثم يكون علقةً مثل ذلك، ثم يكون مُضغةً مثل ذلك ، ثم يَبعث الله ملكًا فيُؤمر بأربع كلمات، ويقال له: اكتُبْ عملَه، ورزقَه، وأجلَه، و شقيٌّ أو سعيدٌ، ثم يُنفخ فيه الروح [Each one of you is constituted in the womb of the mother for forty days and then he becomes a clot of thick blood for a similar period and then a piece of flesh for a similar period. Then Allah sends an angel who is ordered to write four things. He is ordered to write down his deeds, his livelihood, his (date of) death, and whether he will be blessed or wretched (in religion). Then the soul is breathed into him] (Bukhari)
The above Quranic verse and Hadith confirm that the soul enters the fetus 120 days (4 months) after gestation. Thus, first human body is created in the womb of the mother, and then the soul gets associated with it. The moment the soul gets associated with human body, the person/human being comes into existence.
Where were we before birth?
We all existed in Allah's (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) knowledge as His awareness. Meaning, Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) knew about all His creations before their birth. Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) knew horse as horse and tiger as tiger. Among humans, he knew who was a believer, who was a non-believer and who was an apostate.How did we exist in Allah's (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) knowledge?
It is in Quran وَاللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ [And Allah knows about everything.] (An-Noor - 64).
We existed in Allah's knowledge as 'Probate Architype' (Ain-e-Thabita - عینِ ثابتہ).
What is Probate Archetype (عینِ ثابتہ)?
A 'probate archetype' (عینِ ثابتہ) is a unit of information about every single creation of Allah. It is an 'individual fact' or 'innate' (ذات)' of every creature which existed in Allah's (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) knowledge.
When Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) wanted to bring us into external existence (in this world), He first created our material body as per the requirement of this world, then associated a specific soul with it. When these two joined with our innate/person (ذات), we came into existence.
Juz 13, Ar-Ra'd, Verse 009عَالِمُ الْغَيْبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ الْكَبِيرُ الْمُتَعَالِ [ He is knower of the 'seen' and 'unseen' the Mighty and Most High. ]When Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) says He has the knowledge of unseen, it means that He has knowledge about everything that is unseen by human beings. Therefore, the reference of 'unseen' is related to Human beings, not with Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ).
It is in Quran - وَهُوَ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ [ And He is the knower of all things’. (Al-Hadeed – 3).
It is in Quran - وَكَانَ اللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ مُّحِيطًا [And Allah encompasses all the things.] (An-Nisa - 126)
It is in Quran - وَعِندَهُ مَفَاتِحُ الْغَيْبِ لَا يَعْلَمُهَا إِلَّا هُوَ ۚ وَيَعْلَمُ مَا فِي الْبَرِّ وَالْبَحْرِ ۚ وَمَا تَسْقُطُ مِن وَرَقَةٍ إِلَّا يَعْلَمُهَا وَلَا حَبَّةٍ فِي ظُلُمَاتِ الْأَرْضِ وَلَا رَطْبٍ وَلَا يَابِسٍ إِلَّا فِي كِتَابٍ مُّبِينٍ [ With Him are the keys of the unseen, the treasures that none knows but He. He knows whatever there is on the earth and in the sea. Not a leaf that falls but with His knowledge: there is not a grain in the darkness (or depths) of the earth, nor anything fresh or dry (green or withered), but is (inscribed) in a manifest book.] (Al-An'aam - 59)
Juz 13, Ar-Ra'd, Verse 010سَوَاءٌ مِنْكُمْ مَنْ أَسَرَّ الْقَوْلَ وَمَنْ جَهَرَ بِهِ وَمَنْ هُوَ مُسْتَخْفٍ بِاللَّيْلِ وَسَارِبٌ بِالنَّهَارِ [ It is the same (to Him) whether any of you conceal his speech or declare it openly; try to hide in the darkness of night or walk in the brightness of day. ]
Juz 13, Ar-Ra'd, Verse 011لَهُ مُعَقِّبَاتٌ مِنْ بَيْنِ يَدَيْهِ وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِ يَحْفَظُونَهُ مِنْ أَمْرِ اللَّهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُغَيِّرُ مَا بِقَوْمٍ حَتَّى يُغَيِّرُوا مَا بِأَنْفُسِهِمْ وَإِذَا أَرَادَ اللَّهُ بِقَوْمٍ سُوءًا فَلَا مَرَدَّ لَهُ وَمَا لَهُمْ مِنْ دُونِهِ مِنْ وَالٍ [ His angels keep watch over him (the servant) in succession (night and day), in front and behind, by Allah's command. Verily Allah does not change the state of a people till they change themselves. When Allah intends misfortune for a people no one can avert it, and no savior will they have apart from Him. ]
Juz 13, Ar-Ra'd, Verse 012هُوَ الَّذِي يُرِيكُمُ الْبَرْقَ خَوْفًا وَطَمَعًا وَيُنْشِئُ السَّحَابَ الثِّقَالَ [ It is He who shows you the lightning of fear and hope, and He produces heavy clouds (of His Mercy with which you get the peace in heart).]
Juz 13, Ar-Ra'd, Verse 013وَيُسَبِّحُ الرَّعْدُ بِحَمْدِهِ وَالْمَلَائِكَةُ مِنْ خِيفَتِهِ وَيُرْسِلُ الصَّوَاعِقَ فَيُصِيبُ بِهَا مَنْ يَشَاءُ وَهُمْ يُجَادِلُونَ فِي اللَّهِ وَهُوَ شَدِيدُ الْمِحَالِ [ The Thunder exalts His praise, and so do the angels with awe. He sends the thunder-bolts, and therewith strikes whomsoever He wills. Yet these (are the people) who (dare to) dispute about Allah who is Mighty in Wrath.]
Juz 13, Ar-Ra'd, Verse 014لَهُ دَعْوَةُ الْحَقِّ وَالَّذِينَ يَدْعُونَ مِنْ دُونِهِ لَا يَسْتَجِيبُونَ لَهُمْ بِشَيْءٍ إِلَّا كَبَاسِطِ كَفَّيْهِ إِلَى الْمَاءِ لِيَبْلُغَ فَاهُ وَمَا هُوَ بِبَالِغِهِ وَمَا دُعَاءُ الْكَافِرِينَ إِلَّا فِي ضَلَالٍ [ Prayer to Him is the true prayer. For those they invoke other than Allah do not answer them at all, except like a man who stretches his hands towards the water that it reach his mouth, but it will never reach it.]Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) is explaining facts with various examples. A beautiful parable about idol worship is provided in the above verse.Polytheists create imaginary gods or partners of God in their minds with specific shape and characteristics. Then fabricate idols based on their imagination and give certain meanings to these idols saying this is the god responsible for this and that. Then they start worshiping these idols devising various customs. They start believing in them as gods or partners of god and supplicate to these idols to alleviate their problems and believe that their worship of the idol will bear fruit. This is the example of a man who stretches his hands towards a water source from a far off place and expect that the water will reach his mouth. Worshiping idols and expecting them to alleviate their problems is indeed a similar exercise.
Juz 13, Ar-Ra'd, Verse 015وَلِلَّهِ يَسْجُدُ مَنْ فِي السَّمَوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ طَوْعًا وَكَرْهًا وَظِلَالُهُمْ بِالْغُدُوِّ وَالْآَصَالِ [ And to Allah prostrates whosoever is in the heavens and the earth, willingly or unwillingly, as do their shadows in the morning and the evening hours.]The above is 'the verse of Sajda' (آیت سجدہ). If someone is reading it alone, should do prostration (سجدة) alone. If it is read loudly in an audience, the reciter and all the listeners should do 'Prostration of Recitation' (Sajda-e-Tilaawah - سجدة التلاوة) individually.The Prostration can be done in sitting or standing position. In the Hanafi school of thought, 'Prostration of Recitation' (Sajda-e-Tilaawah - سجدة التلاوة) is obligatory (Fardh). With Shafii and Maliki, it is Sunnah.Have the intention to do Prostration of recitation (سجدة التلاوة). The place where you are reading/reciting Quran should be clean. Turn towards Qibla, say (quietly) Allahu Akbar, go into prostration once, recite the 'Tasbih of Sajdah' 'Subhana Rabbi al-A'alaa' (سبحان ربّي الاعلى ) at least 3 times and raise from the Sajda saying Allahu Akbar.It is in Hadith - 'When you have recited a verse requiring Sajdah-e-Tilaawaah, you should go down for Sajdah with Allahu-Akbar and rise from Sajdah with Allahu-Akbar, which may be performed sitting, though it is preferable to prostrate oneself from the standing position. (Abu Dawood)
Juz 13, Ar-Ra'd, Verse 016قُلْ مَنْ رَبُّ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ قُلِ اللَّهُ قُلْ أَفَاتَّخَذْتُمْ مِنْ دُونِهِ أَوْلِيَاءَ لَا يَمْلِكُونَ لِأَنْفُسِهِمْ نَفْعًا وَلَا ضَرًّا قُلْ هَلْ يَسْتَوِي الْأَعْمَى وَالْبَصِيرُ أَمْ هَلْ تَسْتَوِي الظُّلُمَاتُ وَالنُّورُ أَمْ جَعَلُوا لِلَّهِ شُرَكَاءَ خَلَقُوا كَخَلْقِهِ فَتَشَابَهَ الْخَلْقُ عَلَيْهِمْ قُلِ اللَّهُ خَالِقُ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَهُوَ الْوَاحِدُ الْقَهَّارُ [ Ask (them) : 'Who is the Lord and Sustainer of the heavens and the earth?' Tell (them): '(It is) Allah.' Ask (them) : 'Do you then take (for worship) (your so called) protectors other than Him who have no power either for good or harm to their own selves?' Ask : 'Are the blind equal with those who see? Or the depths of darkness equal with light?' Or do they assign to Allah partners who have created (anything) as He has created, so that the creation seemed to them similar? Say, Allah is the Creator of all things, and He is the One, the Almighty. ]
Juz 13, Ar-Ra'd, Verse 017أَنْزَلَ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ مَاءً فَسَالَتْ أَوْدِيَةٌ بِقَدَرِهَا فَاحْتَمَلَ السَّيْلُ زَبَدًا رَابِيًا وَمِمَّا يُوقِدُونَ عَلَيْهِ فِي النَّارِ ابْتِغَاءَ حِلْيَةٍ أَوْ مَتَاعٍ زَبَدٌ مِثْلُهُ كَذَلِكَ يَضْرِبُ اللَّهُ الْحَقَّ وَالْبَاطِلَ فَأَمَّا الزَّبَدُ فَيَذْهَبُ جُفَاءً وَأَمَّا مَا يَنْفَعُ النَّاسَ فَيَمْكُثُ فِي الْأَرْضِ كَذَلِكَ يَضْرِبُ اللَّهُ الْأَمْثَالَ [ When Allah sends down water from the sky and floods run through the valleys, certain quantities of foam rise on the surface of the flood water. This is similar to that foam which rises when you expose something to the heat of a fire to manufacture ornaments or for other reasons. To Allah, truth and falsehood are like these examples. The foam disappears but what benefits to the human being stays in the land. That is how Allah draws comparisons. ]
Juz 13, Ar-Ra'd, Verse 018لِلَّذِينَ اسْتَجَابُوا لِرَبِّهِمُ الْحُسْنَى وَالَّذِينَ لَمْ يَسْتَجِيبُوا لَهُ لَوْ أَنَّ لَهُمْ مَا فِي الْأَرْضِ جَمِيعًا وَمِثْلَهُ مَعَهُ لَافْتَدَوْا بِهِ أُولَئِكَ لَهُمْ سُوءُ الْحِسَابِ وَمَأْوَاهُمْ جَهَنَّمُ وَبِئْسَ الْمِهَادُ [ For those who obey their Lord is excellence. For those who fail to obey, the reckoning will be hard, even if they possess and give as ransom all that there is on the earth, and as much more. Hell will be their abode. How wretched is its wide expanse!]Surely, the expanse of Hell is extremely wide and deep as it will accommodate all disbelievers and hypocrites from the beginning of human kind till the day of resurrection. In addition Jinns, Shayateen will also dwell in the Hell.
It is in Hadith - It is narrated on the authority of Abu Hurairah (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ) that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) said : "The first one to be called on the Day of Resurrection will be Adam (عليه السلام). He will be shown his progeny and it will be said : This is your father Adam. He will say : Here I am at Your service.' He will be asked : ‘Bring forth those who are to be sent to Hell from among your progeny.’ He will say, ‘O Lord, how many should I bring forth?’ Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) will say, ‘Bring forth from every hundred, ninety nine.’ They said : 'O Apostle of Allah (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم), if ninety nine are taken from every hundred of us, what will be left of us?' He said, 'My Ummah, among the other nations, is like a white hair on a black bull.' (Bukhari)It is in Hadith - It is narrated on the authority of Abu Sa'eed al-Khudri (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ), that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) said : 'Allah will say, ‘O Adam (عليه السلام)!’ and he will say, ‘Here I am at Your service, and all goodness is in Your hand.’ He will say, ‘Bring forth those who are to be sent to Hell.’ He will say, ‘Who are those who are to be sent to Hell?’ He will say, ‘From every thousand, nine hundred and ninety nine. (Part of the Hadith) (Bukhari, Muslim)It is in Quran - وَلَقَدْ ذَرَأْنَا لِجَهَنَّمَ كَثِيرًا مِّنَ الْجِنِّ وَالْإِنسِ ۖ لَهُمْ قُلُوبٌ لَّا يَفْقَهُونَ بِهَا وَلَهُمْ أَعْيُنٌ لَّا يُبْصِرُونَ بِهَا وَلَهُمْ آذَانٌ لَّا يَسْمَعُونَ بِهَا ۚ أُولَـٰئِكَ كَالْأَنْعَامِ بَلْ هُمْ أَضَلُّ ۚ أُولَـٰئِكَ هُمُ الْغَافِلُونَ [ And certainly We have created for Hell many of the jinn and the men; they have hearts with which they do not understand, and they have eyes with which they do not see, and they have ears with which they do not hear; they are as cattle, nay, they are in worse errors; these are the heedless ones. ] (Al-A'raaf - 179)
Juz 13, Ar-Ra'd, Verse 019أَفَمَنْ يَعْلَمُ أَنَّمَا أُنْزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِنْ رَبِّكَ الْحَقُّ كَمَنْ هُوَ أَعْمَى إِنَّمَا يَتَذَكَّرُ أُولُواْ الْأَلْبَابِ [ Can a man who knows what has been revealed to you from your Lord is the truth, and one who cannot see, be the same? They alone take warning who are wise,]
Juz 13, Ar-Ra'd, Verse 020الَّذِينَ يُوفُونَ بِعَهْدِ اللَّهِ وَلَا يَنْقُضُونَ الْمِيثَاقَ [ who fulfill their covenant with Allah and do not break their agreement, ]
Juz 13, Ar-Ra'd, Verse 021وَالَّذِينَ يَصِلُونَ مَا أَمَرَ اللَّهُ بِهِ أَنْ يُوصَلَ وَيَخْشَوْنَ رَبَّهُمْ وَيَخَافُونَ سُوءَ الْحِسَابِ [ who keep together what Allah has ordained held together, and fear their Lord and dread the hardship of the Reckoning, ]
Juz 13, Ar-Ra'd, Verse 022وَالَّذِينَ صَبَرُوا ابْتِغَاءَ وَجْهِ رَبِّهِمْ وَأَقَامُوا الصَّلَاةَ وَأَنْفَقُوا مِمَّا رَزَقْنَاهُمْ سِرًّا وَعَلَانِيَةً وَيَدْرَءُونَ بِالْحَسَنَةِ السَّيِّئَةَ أُولَئِكَ لَهُمْ عُقْبَى الدَّارِ [ who persevere in seeking the way of their Lord, who establish Salah, and spend from what We have given them, secretly or openly, who repel evil with good, For (all of) them is the recompense of Paradise. ]
