JUZ 18.7  QAD AFLAHA (قَدْ أَفْلَحَ)

 

 

سورة الفرقان

THE CRITERION
 

Al-Furqaan | Sura # 25| 77 verses | Makkan

 

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ 

In the name of Allah, the Compassionate and the Merciful

 

 

Juz 18, Al-Furqaan, Verse 001

تَبَارَكَ الَّذِي نَزَّلَ الْفُرْقَانَ عَلَى عَبْدِهِ لِيَكُونَ لِلْعَالَمِينَ نَذِيرًا [ Blessed is He Who has sent down the criterion (of right and wrong, the Quran) to His servant (Prophet Mohammad  ﷺ), so that he be a Warner to (all) the worlds. ]
 
Everything in this Cosmos is a creation of Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ).  Among His creation, the human beings are His Servants.  Among His servants, the Prophets are honorable servants.  And among Prophets,  Apostle Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) is most honorable. There is none like him in the Cosmos. He is the perfect and complete human being. Those who treat Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) as a normal sinful human being and associate all human weakness with his person, have lost the right path of Islam and have gone astray.  There are no two opinions in this context.

 

Juz 18, Al-Furqaan, Verse 002

الَّذِي لَهُ مُلْكُ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَلَمْ يَتَّخِذْ وَلَدًا وَلَمْ يَكُنْ لَهُ شَرِيكٌ فِي الْمُلْكِ وَخَلَقَ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ فَقَدَّرَهُ تَقْدِيرًا [ (Allah is) the One to Whom belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth, Who has never had (any) offspring, nor does He have a partner in (governing) His dominion. He has created everything, ordaining it precisely. ]

 

Juz 18, Al-Furqaan, Verse 003

وَاتَّخَذُوا مِنْ دُونِهِ آَلِهَةً لَا يَخْلُقُونَ شَيْئًا وَهُمْ يُخْلَقُونَ وَلَا يَمْلِكُونَ لِأَنْفُسِهِمْ ضَرًّا وَلَا نَفْعًا وَلَا يَمْلِكُونَ مَوْتًا وَلَا حَيَاةً وَلَا نُشُورًا [ Yet the unbelievers have taken besides Him other gods which can create nothing but are themselves created, which can neither harm nor help even to themselves, and which have no power over life or death, or raising the dead to life. ]

 

Juz 18, Al-Furqaan, Verse 004

وَقَالَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا إِنْ هَذَا إِلَّا إِفْكٌ افْتَرَاهُ وَأَعَانَهُ عَلَيْهِ قَوْمٌ آَخَرُونَ فَقَدْ جَاءُو ظُلْمًا وَزُورًا  [ The disbelievers say, 'This (Quran) is nothing but a fabrication which he (the Prophet  ﷺ) has made up with the help of others.' Their claim is totally unjustified and untrue! ]

 

Juz 18, Al-Furqaan, Verse 005

وَقَالُوا أَسَاطِيرُ الْأَوَّلِينَ اكْتَتَبَهَا فَهِيَ تُمْلَى عَلَيْهِ بُكْرَةً وَأَصِيلًا  [ And they say : '(It consists of) only fables of the ancients which he (the Prophet  ﷺ) has got written (by someone). They are being read to him in early mornings and evenings (when people are in their homes).' ]

 

Juz 18, Al-Furqaan, Verse 006

قُلْ أَنْزَلَهُ الَّذِي يَعْلَمُ السِّرَّ فِي السَّمَوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ إِنَّهُ كَانَ غَفُورًا رَحِيمًا [ Say, (O Prophet  ﷺ),  'This (Quran) has been revealed by the One Who knows the secrets of the heavens and the earth.  Surely He is Most Forgiving, Most Merciful.' ]

 

Juz 18, Al-Furqaan, Verse 007

وَقَالُوا مَالِ هَذَا الرَّسُولِ يَأْكُلُ الطَّعَامَ وَيَمْشِي فِي الْأَسْوَاقِ لَوْلَا أُنْزِلَ إِلَيْهِ مَلَكٌ فَيَكُونَ مَعَهُ نَذِيرًا [ And they also say, 'What sort of an Apostle is he who eats food and walks in the markets?   Should not at least an angel have been sent down for him, to help him with his warning?' ]

 

Juz 18, Al-Furqaan, Verse 008

أَوْ يُلْقَى إِلَيْهِ كَنْزٌ أَوْ تَكُونُ لَهُ جَنَّةٌ يَأْكُلُ مِنْهَا وَقَالَ الظَّالِمُونَ إِنْ تَتَّبِعُونَ إِلَّا رَجُلًا مَسْحُورًا  [ 'Why has he not been given a treasure or at least a garden from which he could eat?' And these wicked people further say (to the believers) : 'You are only following a man who is bewitched.' ]

 

Juz 18, Al-Furqaan, Verse 009

انْظُرْ كَيْفَ ضَرَبُوا لَكَ الْأَمْثَالَ فَضَلُّوا فَلَا يَسْتَطِيعُونَ سَبِيلًا [ See what kind of comparisons they make for you! Surely, they have gone astray, and never a way will they be able to find! ]

 

Juz 18, Al-Furqaan, Verse 010

تَبَارَكَ الَّذِي إِنْ شَاءَ جَعَلَ لَكَ خَيْرًا مِنْ ذَلِكَ جَنَّاتٍ تَجْرِي مِنْ تَحْتِهَا الْأَنْهَارُ وَيَجْعَلْ لَكَ قُصُورًا [ Blessed is the One who, if He wishes, can make for you better than that what they propose, gardens with rivers flowing beneath them, and He will make for you palaces. ]

 

Juz 18, Al-Furqaan, Verse 011

بَلْ كَذَّبُوا بِالسَّاعَةِ وَأَعْتَدْنَا لِمَنْ كَذَّبَ بِالسَّاعَةِ سَعِيرًا [ But they have denied the Hour, and We have prepared for those who deny the Hour a Blazing fire. ]

إِذَا رَأَتْهُمْ مِنْ مَكَانٍ بَعِيدٍ سَمِعُوا لَهَا تَغَيُّظًا وَزَفِيرًا [ When (Hell) appears to them from some distance they will hear it raging and roaring. ]

قُلْ أَذَلِكَ خَيْرٌ أَمْ جَنَّةُ الْخُلْدِ الَّتِي وُعِدَ الْمُتَّقُونَ كَانَتْ لَهُمْ جَزَاءً وَمَصِيرًا [ Say, (O Prophet  ﷺ),  'Is this better or the Garden of Eternity which the righteous have been promised, as a reward and (an ultimate) destination? ]

 

Juz 18, Al-Furqaan, Verse 016

لَهُمْ فِيهَا مَا يَشَاءُونَ خَالِدِينَ كَانَ عَلَى رَبِّكَ وَعْدًا مَسْئُولًا [ Where they can have whatever they wish forever. This is a binding promise from your Lord.]

 

Juz 18, Al-Furqaan, Verse 017

وَيَوْمَ يَحْشُرُهُمْ وَمَا يَعْبُدُونَ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ فَيَقُولُ أَأَنْتُمْ أَضْلَلْتُمْ عِبَادِي هَؤُلَاءِ أَمْ هُمْ ضَلُّوا السَّبِيلَ  [ The day He will gather them together as well as those whom they worship besides Allah, He will ask : 'Was it you who let My servants go astray, or did they stray from the Path themselves?']

 

Juz 18, Al-Furqaan, Verse 018

قَالُوا سُبْحَانَكَ مَا كَانَ يَنْبَغِي لَنَا أَنْ نَتَّخِذَ مِنْ دُونِكَ مِنْ أَوْلِيَاءَ وَلَكِنْ مَتَّعْتَهُمْ وَآَبَاءَهُمْ حَتَّى نَسُوا الذِّكْرَ وَكَانُوا قَوْمًا بُورًا  [ Those deities will answer : 'Glory be to You! It was not befitting for us that we could take any protector besides You, but You let them and their forefathers enjoy the comforts of worldly life until they forgot the Reminder (to obey their Lord), and thereby became worthless people.']

 

Juz 18, Al-Furqaan, Verse 019

فَقَدْ كَذَّبُوكُمْ بِمَا تَقُولُونَ فَمَا تَسْتَطِيعُونَ صَرْفًا وَلَا نَصْرًا وَمَنْ يَظْلِمْ مِنْكُمْ نُذِقْهُ عَذَابًا كَبِيرًا  [ (The idolaters will be told) : 'Your gods have refuted your assertion. You can neither avert (your doom) nor receive any help. And whoever of you does wrong, We will make them taste a horrible punishment. ]

 

Juz 18, Al-Furqaan, Verse 020

وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا قَبْلَكَ مِنَ الْمُرْسَلِينَ إِلَّا إِنَّهُمْ لَيَأْكُلُونَ الطَّعَامَ وَيَمْشُونَ فِي الْأَسْوَاقِ وَجَعَلْنَا بَعْضَكُمْ لِبَعْضٍ فِتْنَةً أَتَصْبِرُونَ وَكَانَ رَبُّكَ بَصِيرًا [ (O' Apostle Mohammad ﷺ) We never sent any Apostles before you but they surely ate food and went about in the market places (to buy their needs). We cause you (O humankind) to be a means of testing for one another. Will you (then) show patience and perseverance (in the face of Our decrees and remain steadfast in Our way)? Your Lord is All Seeing. ]
