JUZ 21.1 OTLU MA OOHIYA (اتْلُ مَا أُوحِيَ)
Al-Ankaboot | Sura # 29| 69 Verses | Makkan
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
In the name of Allah, the Compassionate and the Merciful
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 045اتْلُ مَا أُوحِيَ إِلَيْكَ مِنَ الْكِتَابِ وَأَقِمِ الصَّلَاةَ إِنَّ الصَّلَاةَ تَنْهَى عَنِ الْفَحْشَاءِ وَالْمُنْكَرِ وَلَذِكْرُ اللَّهِ أَكْبَرُ وَاللَّهُ يَعْلَمُ مَا تَصْنَعُونَ [ Recite and convey to them (O' Prophet ﷺ) what is revealed to you of the Book, and (let them) establish Salah. Surely, the Salah restrains from all that is indecent and evil. Indeed Allah's remembrance/invocation is a great (way of worship). Allah knows all that you do.]The above verse mentions that in addition to Salah, the Invocation of Allah (وَلَذِكْرُ اللَّهِ أَكْبَرُ) is a great way of worship. Invocation (Zikr) has been emphasized in many verses of Quran and Ahadith.(i) It is in Quran - الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَتَطْمَئِنُّ قُلُوبُهُم بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ ۗ أَلَا بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ تَطْمَئِنُّ الْقُلُوبُ [Those who have believed and whose hearts are assured by the remembrance/invocation of Allah. Indeed, by the remembrance of Allah hearts are assured. ] (Ar-Ra'd - 28)(ii) It is in Quran - يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اذْكُرُوا اللَّهَ ذِكْرًا كَثِيرًا - وَسَبِّحُوهُ بُكْرَةً وَأَصِيلًا [O' believers, remember Allah with much invocation. And exalt Him morning and afternoon. (Al-Ahzaab - 42-43)
(iii) It is in Quran - فَاذْكُرُونِي أَذْكُرْكُمْ [Remember Me and I will remember you.] (Al-Baqara - 152).
The meaning of the above command is, when your forgetfulness from Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) goes, you become close to Him and you are rewarded with a special place in His audience.
(iv) It is in Quran - وَمَنْ يَعْشُ عَنْ ذِكْرِ الرَّحْمَنِ نُقَيِّضْ لَهُ شَيْطَانًا فَهُوَ لَهُ قَرِينٌ - وَإِنَّهُمْ لَيَصُدُّونَهُمْ عَنِ السَّبِيلِ وَيَحْسَبُونَ أَنَّهُمْ مُهْتَدُونَ [Whoever overlooks the remembrance of the Most Compassionate, We assign him a devil, as a companion. They hinder them from the path, though they think they are guided (and are on the right path).] (Az Zukhruf - 36-37).
(v) It is in Hadith - Abu Musa Al-Ash'ari (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ) reported that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) said : 'The similitude of one who remembers his Lord and one who does not remember Him, is like that of the living and the dead.' (Bukhari, Muslim)
The objective of invocation (Zikr) is mindfulness of Allah. Zikr is to remember Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) in such a way that we don't forget Him.
It is in Quran - الَّذِينَ يَذْكُرُونَ اللَّهَ قِيَامًا وَقُعُودًا وَعَلَىٰ جُنُوبِهِمْ [Those who do zikr of Allah standing and sitting and lying on their sides.] (Aal-e-Imran - 191).
The above verse explains how to remain in the 'Perpetuity of His Presence (Dawaam Huzoor - دوام حضور) all the time.
It is in Hadith - The Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) said - اُذْكُرُ اللهُ حَتىّ يَقُولُوْ مَجْنُونٌ [ Do invocation of Allah to an extent that people call you insane.] (Musnad Ahmad)
The most important invocation (Zikr) is the invocation of 'Kalima Tayyiba [La Ilaha Illallahu - لا اله الاّ الله]' which has a significant effect in the prevention of evil considerations (Wasaawis - وساوس).
The invocation of ' La Ilaha Illallahu' (لَا اِلٰهَ اِلّآلله) is the commandment of Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) which has been received through the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم).
It is in Quran - قُلِ اللَّهُ ۖ ثُمَّ ذَرْهُمْ فِي خَوْضِهِمْ يَلْعَبُونَ [ You say Allah and let these forgetful people be involved in nonsensical talk]. (Al-An'aam - 91).
Recitation/Zikr of Durood is the remembrance of Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) which is obligatory on all Muslims.
(i) It is in Quran - إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ ۚ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا صَلُّوا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا [Certainly Allah and His angels send Allah's blessings on the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم). O' believers you also recite for Allah's blessings on Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم). ] (Al-Ahzab - 56).
(ii) It is in Hadith - Abdullah bin Masud (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ) narrates that the Apostle of Allah (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) said : 'On the day of Resurrection the person closest to me will be the one who has sent the most Durood on me.' (Tirmidhi)
(iii) It is in Hadith - Abdulla bin Amr bin Al-Aas (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ) reported : I heard the Apostle of Allah (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) saying : 'Whoever supplicates Allah to exalt for me (recites Durood), Allah would exalt him ten times.' (Muslim)
(iv) It is in Hadith - The Apostle of Allah (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) said : Before whomsoever my name is mentioned, he should recite durood upon me.' (Nasa'i)
Thus, the Zikr of the epithets of Allah (اسماء الهي) and recitation of Durood are the commandments of Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) and His Apostle (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم).
Repeated and excessive invocation of an epithet of Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) produces the effect of that epithet and the person witnesses its effulgence (تجلّي) in his heart. There are different Invocations (Azkaar) for different people depending upon their requirements. It is therefore advisable that invocations are done with the permission and under the supervision of an experienced Sahih-ul-Aqeedah Ahle Sunnah Shaikh of Ihsan.
We have provided below a brief account of the types of invocations practiced by different Ahle Sunnah Shuyookh of Ihsan.
(i) 'Round about breathing invocation' (Pas infas - پاس انفاس). Some Shuyookh teach recitation of Kalima Tayyiba (لَا اِلٰهَ اِلّآلله) several times in a breath. And some teach the invocation of (الله الله) in every breath. They say, no breath should be void from Allah's (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) invocation. This is known as 'Round about breathing invocation' (Pas infas - پاس انفاس).
(ii) Eye invocation (Zikr-e-Aini - ذکرِ عینی )
Some people say La Ilaha (لَا اِلٰهَ) with their eyes open, negate (Nafi - نفی) everything by closing their eyes, and say Illallahu (اِلّآلله) by closing their eyes and affirm (Isbaath - اِثبات) the Unity of Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ). This is a kind of 'roundabout breathing invocation' (pas infas - پاس انفاس).
The other way of roundabout breathing invocation (پاس انفاس) is, they take a deep breath and say Allah (الله) and impulse upon their heart and while releasing their breath, they say hoo (ھُو). 'Round about breathing invocation (پاس انفاس) is a quiet invocation. This is also known as invocation of heart (Zikr-e-Qalbi - ذکرِ قلبی).
Some people do this invocation with eyes open and say Huwa az-Zahiru (هُو الظاهرُ) and by closing their eyes they say Huwa al-Batinu (هُو الباطنُ). All these are known as Eying invocations (اذکارِ عینی).To know details about Invocations (Azkaar), refer books like (i) 'Jawahar-e-Khamsa' by Ghouse Gwalior (رحمة الله عليه), (ii) 'Kashkol-e-Kalimi' by Shah Kalimullah Jahan Abadi (رحمة الله عليه), (iii) Fuyozaat-e-Quadriya' by Ghousul Azam Shaikh Abdul Qader Jeelani (رضئ الله تعالى عنه), (iv) 'Samraath-e-Makkiya' by Shah Rafiuddin Qandahari (رحمة الله عليه), and Schedule of deeds of Suppliants of Allah (نظام العمل فُقَراء), by Shaikh Mohammad Abdul Qadeer Siddiqui (رحمة الله عليه).
(iii) Audible and Quiet invocation (ذکر جہر و ذکر خفی)
Audible Invocation (Zikr-e-Jaher -ذکر جہر) creates an ardor (Josh -جوش) in the heart and develops passions of love and affection of Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) and His Apostle (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم). Similarly good couplets and pleasant religious songs are joyous and create intensive virtuous passions. In Quadri, Chishti and Rafa'i, sufi Salasil, Audible invocation is popular. In other Salasil like Naqshbandiya, people do Quiet Invocation' (ذکر خفی). The Quiet invocation creates a kind of spiritual unconsciousness and dumbfound affect.
(iv) Stifling invocation (Habs-e-dam - حبسِ دم)
In this invocation, people hold their breath by touching their tongues with palate. Holding breath is of various types. Some people empty the air of their stomach to an extent that frontal skin of their stomach touches their backs from inside. They call this 'vacuousness' (Takhlia - تخلیہ). Some people fill their stomach with air and call it 'distention' (Tahlia - تحلیہ). Some people stop their breath in the middle of breathing and call it 'reckoning anima' (Hasar-e-Nafs - حصرِ نفس). This type of invocation produces excessive heat leading to spiritual unconsciousness.
(v) Invocation of Ascent and Descent (Zikr-e-Suwood wo Nuzool - ذکرِ صُعود و نُزول)
This invocation is done generally in sitting position. They draw La Ilaha (لَا اِلٰهَ) from the navel and take it up to the middle of the brain/head and giving an impulse with Illallahu (اِلّآلله) bring it back to the navel point. Some people do it while lying on their back and while standing.
(vi) Walking Invocation ( Zikr-e-Mashi-ul-Aqdaam - ذکر مشی الاقدام)
In this invocation, when they are walking slowly, with every step they say Allah, Allah (الله الله) in their heart. Or on one step they say La Ilaha (لَا اِلٰهَ), and on the other say Illallahu (اِلّآلله). If they are walking fast, on first step they say (La لَا), on the second say (Ilaha اِلٰهَ). On the third step say (illal اِلّآ), and on the fourth step say (Lahu لله).
(vii) Invocation of tranquility (Chilla Kashi - چِلہ کشی)
This is seclusive prayer (E'tekaaf - اعتکاف). Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) used to sit in seclusive prayers in the month of Ramadhan. Some of the Prophet's (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) respected wives also used to sit in seclusive prayers.
Some Shuyookh of Ihsan also sit in seclusive prayers and keep 'the fast of Maryam (Saum-e-Maryam - صومِ مریم) simultaneously.
While fasting during the day, they do not talk. Prophet Zakariya (عليه السلام) also used to sit in seclusive prayers and for Allah's (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) acceptance of the prayers, he used to refrain from talking to anyone.
(viii) In Quadri lineagae, people give 'rosary bounding' (Zakaat - زکوٰۃ) of each divine epithets with 'concluding supplications' (Tawajjohat-e-Shareef - توجھ شریف).
What is 'rosary bounding'?
To recite the name of Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) or any other divine epithet (اِسمِ الهي) for one hundred thousand or one hundred and twenty five thousand times, is known as one 'Rosary bounding'. This limit has been prescribed in Quran..
It is in Quran - مِائَةِ أَلْفٍ أَوْ يَزِيدُونَ [One hundred thousand times or a little more.] (As-Saaffaat-147).
Along with the invocation of each epithet, there are 'attentional supplications' (Tawajjohat-e-Shareef - توجھاتِ شریف).
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 046وَلَا تُجَادِلُوا أَهْلَ الْكِتَابِ إِلَّا بِالَّتِي هِيَ أَحْسَنُ إِلَّا الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا مِنْهُمْ وَقُولُوا آَمَنَّا بِالَّذِي أُنْزِلَ إِلَيْنَا وَأُنْزِلَ إِلَيْكُمْ وَإِلَهُنَا وَإِلَهُكُمْ وَاحِدٌ وَنَحْنُ لَهُ مُسْلِمُونَ [ (O' Believers), argue in the best way with the People of the Book, except with those of them who act unjustly, tell them, 'We believe in what was revealed to us and in what was revealed to you; our God and your God are one (and the same); and we are Muslims, (totally) devoted to Him.' ]
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 047وَكَذَلِكَ أَنْزَلْنَا إِلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ فَالَّذِينَ آَتَيْنَاهُمُ الْكِتَابَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِهِ وَمِنْ هَؤُلَاءِ مَنْ يُؤْمِنُ بِهِ وَمَا يَجْحَدُ بِآَيَاتِنَا إِلَّا الْكَافِرُونَ [ This is the way We sent the book (the Quran) to you (O' Prophet ﷺ). Those to whom We had already given Scripture believe in (the Quran) and so do some of these people. No one refuses to acknowledge Our revelations but the defiant. ]
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 048وَمَا كُنْتَ تَتْلُو مِنْ قَبْلِهِ مِنْ كِتَابٍ وَلَا تَخُطُّهُ بِيَمِينِكَ إِذًا لَارْتَابَ الْمُبْطِلُونَ [ You never recited any Book before We revealed this one to you, nor did you ever write one with your own hand. Otherwise, those who try to disprove the truth would have had the cause for doubt. ]
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 049بَلْ هُوَ آَيَاتٌ بَيِّنَاتٌ فِي صُدُورِ الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْعِلْمَ وَمَا يَجْحَدُ بِآَيَاتِنَا إِلَّا الظَّالِمُونَ [ Rather, the Qur'an is a clear message to the hearts of those who have been given knowledge. No one knowingly rejects Our verses except those who are unjust (to themselves). ]
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 050وَقَالُوا لَوْلَا أُنْزِلَ عَلَيْهِ آَيَاتٌ مِنْ رَبِّهِ قُلْ إِنَّمَا الْآَيَاتُ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ وَإِنَّمَا أَنَا نَذِيرٌ مُبِينٌ [ They say : 'Why have no miraculous signs been sent down on him from his Lord?' Say : 'The miraculous signs are but at the Will and in the Power of Allah. I am but a manifest warner. ]
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 051أَوَلَمْ يَكْفِهِمْ أَنَّا أَنْزَلْنَا عَلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ يُتْلَى عَلَيْهِمْ إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لَرَحْمَةً وَذِكْرَى لِقَوْمٍ يُؤْمِنُونَ [ Is it not sufficient for them that We have sent down the book (the Quran) to you which is recited to them? Surely, in that there is Mercy and reminder for people who believe. ]
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 052قُلْ كَفَى بِاللَّهِ بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَكُمْ شَهِيدًا يَعْلَمُ مَا فِي السَّمَوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَالَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا بِالْبَاطِلِ وَكَفَرُوا بِاللَّهِ أُولَئِكَ هُمُ الْخَاسِرُونَ [ Tell them (O' Prophet ﷺ) : 'Allah is sufficient as a witness between me and you, for He knows all that is in the heavens and the earth. Those who believe in falsehood and disbelieve Allah, it is they who shall be the losers.' ]
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 053وَيَسْتَعْجِلُونَكَ بِالْعَذَابِ وَلَوْلَا أَجَلٌ مُسَمًّى لَجَاءَهُمُ الْعَذَابُ وَلَيَأْتِيَنَّهُمْ بَغْتَةً وَهُمْ لَا يَشْعُرُونَ [ They challenge you to hasten the torment on them. Had a time not been fixed for it, the torment would already have overtaken them. It is going to come suddenly and catch them unaware. ]
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 054يَسْتَعْجِلُونَكَ بِالْعَذَابِ وَإِنَّ جَهَنَّمَ لَمُحِيطَةٌ بِالْكَافِرِينَ [ They demand you to bring upon them the torment immediately. Hell will certainly engulf the unbelievers. ]
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 055يَوْمَ يَغْشَاهُمُ الْعَذَابُ مِنْ فَوْقِهِمْ وَمِنْ تَحْتِ أَرْجُلِهِمْ وَيَقُولُ ذُوقُوا مَا كُنْتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ [ On the Day when punishment overwhelms them from above and from below their feet, and they will be told, 'Now taste the punishment for what you used to do.’ ]
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 056يَا عِبَادِيَ الَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا إِنَّ أَرْضِي وَاسِعَةٌ فَإِيَّايَ فَاعْبُدُونِ [ O' My servants who believe, (but are prevented from living in accordance with their belief) My earth is vast, so worship Me alone. ]
The above verse implies that when things become too difficult for Muslims to practice their religion freely, they can immigrate to a place where they can protect their Iman and live safely.
When things became too difficult for Muslims in Makkah in view of pagans' persecution, a group of them migrated to Ethiopia where King Negus (Ashmah) allowed them to live honorably. Later, Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) and his remaining companions also migrated to Madina.
In the light of the above commandment, whenever Muslims face repression by local nonbelievers and are forced to alter/change their faith as a condition of nationalism, they can migrate to another country where they can practice Islam freely.
Sahih Iman is of paramount importance. Muslims have the option to immigrate rather than obey anyone if they forced for committing shirk in the name of relationships, interfaith harmony or nationalism.
It is in Quran - وَوَصَّيْنَا الْإِنْسَانَ بِوَالِدَيْهِ حُسْنًا وَإِنْ جَاهَدَاكَ لِتُشْرِكَ بِي مَا لَيْسَ لَكَ بِهِ عِلْمٌ فَلَا تُطِعْهُمَا إِلَيَّ مَرْجِعُكُمْ فَأُنَبِّئُكُمْ بِمَا كُنْتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ [ We have enjoined man to show kindness to his parents; but if they force you to commit shirk with Me, of which you have no knowledge, do not obey them. To Me is your return and I will inform you of what you have done.] (Al-An-Kaboot- 8)
A new Ammani sect has emerged among Muslims in the year 2004-05 who propagate Perennialism in the name of Islam.
What is Perennialism?
Perennialism or Perennial philosophy has its roots in Platonism which was condemned by Imam Ghazali during his lifetime ( 1058–1111). Perennialism is also known as 'Universalism' and 'Traditionalism'. This is based on the philosophy that all religions are truthful and you follow any religion, you will get salvation in Hereafter. In Indian sub-Continent, this thought is known as 'Sulah-e-Kulli'. 'Perennialist Sufis' have infiltrated into many Sufi orders in the world. They treat Sufism as a religion, independent of Islam. They also claim Sufism predates Islam. Nazim al-Haqqani, Dr. Taher-ul-Qadri and many others who have signed Amman Message belong to this group.
The Ammanis allow their followers to visit Hindu temples, Christian Churches, Sikh Gurduwaras, Jewish Synagogues, Buddhist temples to participate in their services in the name of Interfaith Harmony. They also allow people belonging to different religions to visit their mosques to worship as per their customs. They have also published English translation of Quran titled 'Study Quran' in line with Christian Bible and Jewish Torah/Talmud. It does not contain verses of Quran in Arabic. One has to read only English version of Ammani interpretation of Quranic verses.
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 057كُلُّ نَفْسٍ ذَائِقَةُ الْمَوْتِ ثُمَّ إِلَيْنَا تُرْجَعُونَ [ Everyone shall taste death. Then to Us you (all) shall be returned. ]
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 058وَالَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ لَنُبَوِّئَنَّهُمْ مِنَ الْجَنَّةِ غُرَفًا تَجْرِي مِنْ تَحْتِهَا الْأَنْهَارُ خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا نِعْمَ أَجْرُ الْعَامِلِينَ [ To those who have believed and done righteous deeds, We will assign mansions in Paradise under which rivers flow, where they will remain forever. (Indeed, such is) an excellent reward for those who do good work, ]
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 059الَّذِينَ صَبَرُوا وَعَلَى رَبِّهِمْ يَتَوَكَّلُونَ [ (and) those who patiently endure, and put their trust in their Lord! ]
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 060وَكَأَيِّنْ مِنْ دَابَّةٍ لَا تَحْمِلُ رِزْقَهَا اللَّهُ يَرْزُقُهَا وَإِيَّاكُمْ وَهُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ [ How many a creature who give no thought to their (own) sustenance, but Allah provides for them and for you. He is the All Hearing, the All Knowing. ]The above verse implies that you should not run for making money by hook or crook forgetting the teachings of Islam. Your sustenance is guaranteed by Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ). You need to find your livelihood by honest means, and eating what is permissible and refrain from what is forbidden. The primary purpose of human beings in this world is to worship their Creator.It is in Quran - وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنسَ إِلَّا لِيَعْبُدُونِ [ And I did not create the jinn and mankind except to worship Me. (Adh-Dhariyaat - 56)
Earning for livelihood is the secondary responsibility. If you seek your livelihood by honest means, you will be rewarded. If you seek it by dishonest means, you will be subjected to its consequences in this world and in Hereafter.
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 061وَلَئِنْ سَأَلْتَهُمْ مَنْ خَلَقَ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ وَسَخَّرَ الشَّمْسَ وَالْقَمَرَ لَيَقُولُنَّ اللَّهُ فَأَنَّى يُؤْفَكُونَ [ If you ask them (O Prophet ﷺ ) who created the heavens and the earth and subjected the sun and the moon (for your benefit), they will certainly say, 'Allah'. How can they then be deluded (from the truth)? ]
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 062اللَّهُ يَبْسُطُ الرِّزْقَ لِمَنْ يَشَاءُ مِنْ عِبَادِهِ وَيَقْدِرُ لَهُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمٌ [ Allah gives abundantly to whom He pleases and sparingly to whom He wills; surely Allah has knowledge of all things. ]
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 063وَلَئِنْ سَأَلْتَهُمْ مَنْ نَزَّلَ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ مَاءً فَأَحْيَا بِهِ الْأَرْضَ مِنْ بَعْدِ مَوْتِهَا لَيَقُولُنَّ اللَّهُ قُلِ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ بَلْ أَكْثَرُهُمْ لَا يَعْقِلُونَ [ If you ask them, ‘Who sends water down from the sky and gives life with it to the earth after it has died?’ they are sure to say, ‘Allah.’ Say, ‘Praise belongs to Allah!’ Truly, most of them do not use their reason. ]
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 064وَمَا هَذِهِ الْحَيَاةُ الدُّنْيَا إِلَّا لَهْوٌ وَلَعِبٌ وَإِنَّ الدَّارَ الْآَخِرَةَ لَهِيَ الْحَيَوَانُ لَوْ كَانُوا يَعْلَمُونَ [ The life of this world is nothing but a pastime and play! It is the life of the hereafter that is the true life, if only they knew it. ]
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 065فَإِذَا رَكِبُوا فِي الْفُلْكِ دَعَوُا اللَّهَ مُخْلِصِينَ لَهُ الدِّينَ فَلَمَّا نَجَّاهُمْ إِلَى الْبَرِّ إِذَا هُمْ يُشْرِكُونَ [ If they happen to be aboard a ship (caught in a storm), they cry out to Allah (alone) in sincere devotion. But as soon as He delivers them (safely) to the shore, they associate (others with Him again). ]
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 066لِيَكْفُرُوا بِمَا آَتَيْنَاهُمْ وَلِيَتَمَتَّعُوا فَسَوْفَ يَعْلَمُونَ [ And so let them show ingratitude for all that We have granted them, and so let them give themselves up to the enjoyment of the worldly life; but they will come to know (the consequences of their wrongdoings soon). ]
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 067أَوَلَمْ يَرَوْا أَنَّا جَعَلْنَا حَرَمًا آَمِنًا وَيُتَخَطَّفُ النَّاسُ مِنْ حَوْلِهِمْ أَفَبِالْبَاطِلِ يُؤْمِنُونَ وَبِنِعْمَةِ اللَّهِ يَكْفُرُونَ [ Do they not see that We have made for them a secure sanctuary in (Makka), while the people are being snatched away from all around them? Do they still believe in falsehood and deny the blessings of Allah? ]
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 068وَمَنْ أَظْلَمُ مِمَّنِ افْتَرَى عَلَى اللَّهِ كَذِبًا أَوْ كَذَّبَ بِالْحَقِّ لَمَّا جَاءَهُ أَلَيْسَ فِي جَهَنَّمَ مَثْوًى لِلْكَافِرِينَ [ Who is more unjust than he who fabricates a lie about Allah, or denies the truth when it has come to him? Is there not an abode for unbelievers in Hell? ]
Juz 21, Al-Ankaboot, Verse 069وَالَّذِينَ جَاهَدُوا فِينَا لَنَهْدِيَنَّهُمْ سُبُلَنَا وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَمَعَ الْمُحْسِنِينَ [ As for those who strive in Our cause, We will surely guide them to Our ways; Indeed, Allah is with the righteous. ]
