S7:A33

Today’s thought for the Day comes from: (Al Qura’an) “S7:A33”, In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful! “Say, “My Lord has only forbidden shameful deeds – what is apparent of them and what is concealed – and sin and oppression without right, and that you associate with Allah that for which He has not sent down any authority, and that you say about Allah what you do not know.”

The forbidden things are described in four catagories:

1) Shameful or improper; the sort of things which have also legal and social sanctions, not of a local but of a universal kind and they may be called offences against society.

2) Sins against self and trespasses or excesses of every sort; these are against truth and reason; here would come in indiscipline, failure in doing intangible duties not clearly defined by law; selfishness, which may be condoned by custom and not punished by law, etc.

3) Erecting fetishes or false gods; this is treason against the true God._

4) Corrupting religion; by debasing superstitions, etc. 

Act for the Day is: To understand that Allah has forbidden things that are evil, not those that are good. The transgressors are those who reject Allah’s Signs. They will have no share in the Bliss of Hereafter. But the righteous Will dwell in Peace, and the Hope that was promised will be theirs.  JazakAllah Khair.

S4:A118

Today’s thought for the Day comes from: (Al Qura’an) “S4:A118”, In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful! “Allah cursed him and he (Shaitaan) said, I will surely take from your slaves an appointed portion”.

(Please read “S4:A119 & 120” also to understand the complete Plan of shaitaan)

This shows that shaitaan is determined to lay his claim to a portion of men’s time, to their effort and labour, to their energies and capacities, to their material belongings, and to their offspring, and would somehow trick them into devoting a sizeable portion of all these in his cause. 

Act for the Day is: To understand the fact that shaitaan obtained Allah’s permission to tempt man, and this was implied in such free will as was granted to man by Allah. 

Shaitaan’s boast is that the portion of mankind seduced by him will be so corrupted in their nature that they will bear a sort of brand that will mark them off as his own; or that they will be like a portion assigned to himself.  

So, we shall always remember to say “Aozubillahi min-ashaitaan nir-rajeem”, when we feel like being distracted, and seek refuge in Allah from Shaitaan, as all his deceptions are with false desires, false superstitions, and false fears. JazakAllah Khair.

S5:A66

Todays thought for the Day comes from: (Al Qur’an) “S5:A66”, In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful! “And if only they had stood firmly by the Taurat and the Injeel and what was revealed to them from their Lord, surely they would have consumed (provision) from above them and from beneath their feet. Among them is a moderate community, but many of them do evil deeds.” 

This is to explain that had the People of the Book observed the Torah and the Gospel, and all that had been revealed to them from their Lord, they were guaranteed, that their sustenance would have been showered over them from the (sky) and risen from beneath their feet (earth). It denotes not only food to eat but enjoyment generally, physical, social, mental and moral and spiritual. 

[(In the Old Testament, Leviticus (chapter 26) and Deuteronomy (chapter 28) record a sermon of Moses in which he impresses upon Israel, in great detail, the bounties and blessings of God with which they would be endowed if they obeyed His commandments, and the afflictions, scourges and devastations that would descend upon them if they disobeyed Him and rejected the Book of God.)]

‘Eating’ here would seem to mean receiving satisfaction or happiness in this life as well as in the life to come. From ‘above them’ may refer to heavenly or spiritual satisfaction, and ‘from below their feet’ to earthly satisfaction. But it is better to take the words as a general idiom, and understand “satisfaction or happiness from every side.” (Please read S5:A57 to 66). 

Act for the Day is: To understand that, “True justice accords with Allah’s Law.” Follow not men’s selfish desires, But Allah’s Will, which was revealed To Moses and Jesus, and now to Mohammed (Peace Be Upon Them All). 

Take not for friends and protectors Those in whose hearts is a disease; To whom religion is a mockery Or a plaything, who worship evil. Proclaim the Truth of Allah, and be Not afraid. Eschew their iniquities, Which were denounced by David and Jesus (Peace Be on Both Of Them). JazakAllah Khair.

S64:A4

Today’s thought for the Day comes from: (Al Qura’an) “S64:A4”, In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful! “He knows what is in the heavens and earth, and He knows what you conceal and what you declare. And Allah is All-knowing of what is in the breasts. 

Both the Unbelievers and the Believers are created by the One True God, Who created all and knows all. Whatever you do secretly and whatever you do openly, He is aware not only of those acts of man, which come to the notice of the people but He knows also those acts which remain hidden from them. This is such a truth that if man ponders over it seriously, he can fully well understand that justice can be done only in the Hereafter, and only in God’s Court real justice can possibly be done. 

Man’s own intellect itself demands that one shall be punished for each of his/her crimes. But everyone knows that in the world, most of the crimes remain hidden, or the culprit escapes punishment because of insufficient evidence, or even if the crime becomes revealed, the culprit is so influential and powerful that he cannot be punished. 

Act for the Day is: To realise that not only does Allah Create and Develop and Sustain all things, but all Thoughts, Motives, Feelings, Ideas, and Events are also known to Him. Allah SWT is “Continuously Monitoring us for our Continuous Growth” – (“CMCG”). 

Therefore we must not imagine that, if some evil seems to go unpunished, it is not known to Him or has escaped His notice. Allah’s plan is Wise and Good in its fullest compass; sometimes we do not see its wisdom and goodness because we see only a broken fragment of it, as our own intelligence is narrow. The Gainers here will be the Losers there, and the Losers Gainers. Good will get More than it’s full reward; for Allah SWT is Bounteous, Merciful, Mighty, and Wise. JazakAllah Khair!

S4:A76

Today’s thought for the Day comes from: (Al Qura’an) “S4:A76”, In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful! “Those who believe, they fight in the way of Allah; and those who disbelieve, they fight in the way of the false deities. So fight against the friends of shaitaan. Indeed, the strategy of Shaitaan is weak.” 

This lays down a clear verdict of God. To fight in the cause of God in order that His religion be established on earth is the task of men of faith, and whoever truly believes can never shirk this duty.

To fight in the cause of Taghut  (authority in defiance of God) in order that the world may be governed by rebels against God is the task of unbelievers in which no believer can engage himself. 

(Refer S2:A256; The word Tâghût  covers a wide range of meanings: It means anything worshipped other than the Real God (Allah), i.e., all the false deities. It may be Shaitaan, devil’s, idols, stones, sun, stars, graves, angels, human beings, who were falsely worshipped and taken as Tâghûts. Likewise saints, graves, rulers, leaders, etc., are falsely worshipped and wrongly followed, but the one who does not accept to be worshipped will not be considered as a Tâghût.  Sometimes “Tâghût” means a false judge who gives a false judgment, refer S4:A51 & A60)

Shaitaan and his comrades-in-arms ostensibly undertake tremendous preparations and contrive all kinds of ingenious machinations. True men of faith, however, should not be intimidated either by such preparations or by machinations. For, no matter what they do, they are doomed to fail. 

Act for the Day is: To keep together (Unity) in our noble brotherhood. Share its joys and sorrows. Strive and fight the good fight and never fear. As we know it, this life is short, and the Hereafter Eternal. 

We shall never allow ourselves to be drawn into unbelief and cowardice; But maintain the Right, and protect ourselves against the hypocrites and deserters. JazakAllah Khair.

S7:A185

Today’s thought for the Day comes from: (Al Qura’an) “S7:A185”, In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful! “Do they not look into the dominion of the heavens and the earth and everything that Allah has created and that perhaps their term has come near? So in what statement after this will they believe? 

The Qur’an, asks everyone to give serious thought to the teachings of the Prophet (PBUH) and to see if there is anything that is inconsistent with sanity, or is meaningless and irrational. Had people reflected on the order of the universe, or carefully considered even one single creation of God, they would have been convinced of the truth of the teachings of the Prophet (PBUH). They would have realized that whatever he said to refute polytheism, or to establish God’s unity or the accountability of man in the Hereafter, or about the necessity of man’s surrender to God, was corroborated by the entire order of the universe and every single atom of God’s creation. 

Act for the Day is: To understand that An appeal to Allah’s most wonderful universe should at once convince a thinking mind of man’s nothingness about Allah’s Power, Glory, and Goodness. Let’s realise that our term here is fleeting-(lasting for a very short time), if we are not warned by the great Signs, and the Message which call our attention to them, are we capable of any faith at all? 

No one knows when he will die. For death overtakes man totally unaware. This being the case, what will be the end of those who waste the time at their disposal until death overtakes them and fail to find the direction to their salvation? JazakAllah Khair.

S10:A41

Today’s thought for the Day comes from: (Al Qura’an) “S10:A41”, In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful! “And if they deny you then say,” For me are my deeds, and for you are your deeds. You are disassociated from what I do, and I am disassociated from what you do.”  

Since every individual is himself accountable for his deeds, there is no point in engaging in unnecessary discussions which are often actuated by obduracy. For if the Prophet (peace be on him) was indeed inventing lies, he would bear the evil consequence of such an action. On the other hand, if his opponents were denying the truth, their action will not hurt the Prophet (peace be on him), but rather hurt themselves. 

Act for the Day is: To note that when the Prophet of Allah is rejected and charged with falsehood, he doesn’t give up his work, but continues to teach and preach his Message nicely, politely and humbly. He can well say to those who interfere with him; “Mind your own business – supposing your charge against me is true, you incur no responsibility; I have to answer for it before Allah, and if I do my duty and deliver my Message, your rejection doesn’t make me liable for your wrongdoing. You will have to answer before Allah.” SubhaanAllah! no further argument required. This is what needs to be adopted even in present times. 

The Day will come when they (one who reject the Truth) will see the Majesty, the Glory, the Goodness, and the Justice of Allah. Let not their blasphemies and falsehoods Grieve the men of Allah; for falsehood and false ones will never prosper. JazakAllah Khair.
