Excerpts from ~ Ramadaan 1434 Programmes
: An Explanation of Selected Verses of Surahs of the 30th Juz
: The Central Theme Throughout
The 30th Juz of Quraan-e-Majeed is the Tauheed (Oneness) of ALLAH Subhaanahu wa Ta’ala, His Supremacy, Grandeur which is manifest in His creation, and also resurrection of mankind and the reality of Qiyaamah.
~ The Day of Qiyaamah is mentioned throughout the entire Quran Sharief by various descriptions: The Day of Catastrophe, The Day of the Deafening sound, The Overwhelming Event.
The Horrors of Qiyaamah are Evident in these Verses :
The Surahs of the 30th Juz of the Quran-e-Majeed are short and abound with stern warnings. Mufassireen say it is like the sharp wrapping at the door of one who is in a deep slumber … In order to jolt him into an awake and alert state to take heed of the Reality that EVERY SINGLE BEING will have to present himself and account for his deeds to ALLAH, LORD and MASTER of the UNIVERSE
Allah Ta’ala says:…
يَا أَيُّهَا الْإِنسَانُ مَا غَرَّكَ بِرَبِّكَ الْكَرِيمِ
O mankind, what has deceived you concerning your Lord, the Generous,
الَّذِي خَلَقَكَ فَسَوَّاكَ فَعَدَلَكَ
Who created you, proportioned you, and balanced you?
فِي أَيِّ صُورَةٍ مَّا شَاءَ رَكَّبَكَ
In whatever form He willed has He assembled you.
Surah Al Infitaar 82: 6/7/8
~ Despite all of us being totally unworthy, ALLAH has bestowed upon us so many favours (our Imaan, our health, our wealth, our intelligence, our beauty, being from the Ummat of His Greatest Creation and Beloved … To enumerate only a few)
~ ALLAH is FULL of Justice and will reward everybody according to what they used to do. The Believer will be rewarded with Jannah and the obstinate disbelievers will be admitted to Jahannum to reside there permanently.
أَفَلَا يَنظُرُونَ إِلَى الْإِبِلِ كَيْفَ خُلِقَتْ
Then do they not look at the camels – how they are created?
وَإِلَى السَّمَاءِ كَيْفَ رُفِعَتْ
And at the sky – how it is raised?
وَإِلَى الْجِبَالِ كَيْفَ نُصِبَتْ
And at the mountains – how they are erected?
وَإِلَى الْأَرْضِ كَيْفَ سُطِحَتْ
And at the earth – how it is spread out?
Surah Al Ghaashiyah 88: 17-20
~ ALLAH exhorts mankind to look at the creation of ALLAH AND TAKE HEED? ….Do they not look at the camel (their conveyance). Do they not look up at the sky and reflect … Are there any defects (fissure/ flaws/ cracks) in the sky which has been raised up above them? Do the disbelievers think that they are stronger than the sky? If they have not seen clearly, they are advised to look again. What of the land and scenery (mountains)… Do they not reflect?
~ Indeed the sky is beautiful and fortified and the land levelled and the mountains firmly erected by ONE RABB!
~ These warnings apply to us as Believers too, for our condition is such that we believe in The Day of Qiyaamah but our behaviour is contrary to our belief. On That Day when there will be NO interpreter between us and ALLAH, and each of us will have to come alone and account for every deed … Have we prepared?
~ A Believer who prepares for That Day of Horror, by obeying the commands of ALLAH and Rasulullaah Sallallaahu alayhi wa salam, ALLAH expands his heart and fills it with Noor. A sign of this (as mentioned in Hadith Sharief) is that the person detaches himself from the World and its Deception and focuses on Aakhirat.
~ When death occurs, it is as if Qiyamah has already begun for the deceased because he has to answer the questions of the Qabr and remain in Aalam e Barzakh until the Day of Ressurection. That Day, when the trumpet is blown and everyone proceeds for Reckoning, is Horrifying indeed.
فَأَمَّا مَن طَغَىٰ
So as for he who transgressed
وَآثَرَ الْحَيَاةَ الدُّنْيَا
And preferred the life of the world,
فَإِنَّ الْجَحِيمَ هِيَ الْمَأْوَىٰ
Then indeed, Hellfire will be [his] refuge.
وَأَمَّا مَنْ خَافَ مَقَامَ رَبِّهِ وَنَهَى النَّفْسَ عَنِ الْهَوَىٰ
But as for he who feared the position of his Lord and prevented the soul from [unlawful] inclination,
فَإِنَّ الْجَنَّةَ هِيَ الْمَأْوَىٰ
Then indeed, Paradise will be [his] refuge.
Surah An Naziaat 79: 37-41
~ ALLAH says that for the one who transgresses and prefers Dunya over Aakhirat, his abode will be Jahannum. For the one fears ALLAH and restrains himself (not submitting to his base desires), Jannat will be his abode.
