[19.1] Back To Basics- [The State of Pure Islamic Monotheism- Laa Ilaaha Ilal laah]

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy


فَٱعۡلَمۡ أَنَّهُ ۥ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا ٱللَّهُ وَٱسۡتَغۡفِرۡ لِذَنۢبِكَ وَلِلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنَـٰتِ‌ۗ وَٱللَّهُ يَعۡلَمُ مُتَقَلَّبَكُمۡ وَمَثۡوَٮٰكُمۡ


Allaah [The Most High] said in Surah Muhammad Aayaat 16-19:

وَمِنۡہُم مَّن يَسۡتَمِعُ إِلَيۡكَ حَتَّىٰٓ إِذَا خَرَجُواْ مِنۡ عِندِكَ قَالُواْ لِلَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ ٱلۡعِلۡمَ مَاذَا قَالَ ءَانِفًا‌ۚ أُوْلَـٰٓٮِٕكَ ٱلَّذِينَ طَبَعَ ٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ قُلُوبِہِمۡ وَٱتَّبَعُوٓاْ أَهۡوَآءَهُمۡ

وَٱلَّذِينَ ٱهۡتَدَوۡاْ زَادَهُمۡ هُدً۬ى وَءَاتَٮٰهُمۡ تَقۡوَٮٰهُمۡ

فَهَلۡ يَنظُرُونَ إِلَّا ٱلسَّاعَةَ أَن تَأۡتِيَہُم بَغۡتَةً۬‌ۖ فَقَدۡ جَآءَ أَشۡرَاطُهَا‌ۚ فَأَنَّىٰ لَهُمۡ إِذَا جَآءَتۡہُمۡ ذِكۡرَٮٰهُمۡ

فَٱعۡلَمۡ أَنَّهُ ۥ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا ٱللَّهُ وَٱسۡتَغۡفِرۡ لِذَنۢبِكَ وَلِلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنَـٰتِ‌ۗ وَٱللَّهُ يَعۡلَمُ مُتَقَلَّبَكُمۡ وَمَثۡوَٮٰكُمۡ

Few Reminders from the above Aayaat:

Allaah [The Most High] informed (us) about the hypocrites’ lack of sound judgement and about their limited comprehension, for they used to sit in the presence of Allaah’s Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam] and listen to speech, but they could not understand anything. And when they go out after sitting with the Messenger [sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam], Allaah [The Most High] informs us that: [قَالُواْ لِلَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ ٱلۡعِلۡمَ مَاذَا قَالَ ءَانِفًا‌ۚ – they say to those who have received knowledge: “What has he (i.e. Messenger) said just now?]; meaning, they asked the companions of the Messenger about what they stated just a little while ago, for they [i.e. the hypocrites] neither understood what the Messenger stated nor were they bothered about it; so Allaah [The Most High] said about them:

[أُوْلَـٰٓٮِٕكَ ٱلَّذِينَ طَبَعَ ٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ قُلُوبِہِمۡ وَٱتَّبَعُوٓاْ أَهۡوَآءَهُمۡ – Such are men whose hearts Allah has sealed, and they follow their lusts (evil desires)]; meaning, neither do they possess sound understanding nor a sound intention.

Then Allaah [The Mighty and Majestic] said: [وَٱلَّذِينَ ٱهۡتَدَوۡاْ زَادَهُمۡ هُدً۬ى – While as for those who accept guidance, He [i.e. Allaah] increases their guidance]; meaning, those whose intention is to seek guidance, Allaah [direct their hearts and shows them the path to] guidance; grant them firmness upon guidance and increase their guidance; [وَءَاتَٮٰهُمۡ تَقۡوَٮٰهُمۡ  – and bestows on them their piety].

Then Allaah [The Most High] said: [فَهَلۡ يَنظُرُونَ إِلَّا ٱلسَّاعَةَ أَن تَأۡتِيَہُم بَغۡتَةً۬‌ۖ  – Do they then await (anything) other than the Hour, that it should come upon them suddenly?]; meaning, it will come to them whilst they are heedless of it;[ فَقَدۡ جَآءَ أَشۡرَاطُهَا‌ۚ فَأَنَّىٰ لَهُمۡ إِذَا جَآءَتۡہُمۡ ذِكۡرَٮٰهُمۡ – But some of its portents (indications and signs) have already come, and when it (actually) is on them, how can they benefit then by their reminder?] [Ref 1]

Then Allaah [The Most High] said: [فَٱعۡلَمۡ أَنَّهُ ۥ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا ٱللَّهُ  – So know (O Muhammad) that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah]; meaning, be firm upon your knowledge that none has the right to be worshipped except Allaah; [Ref 2] [وَٱسۡتَغۡفِرۡ لِذَنۢبِكَ وَلِلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنَـٰتِ‌ۗ – and ask forgiveness for your sin, and also for (the sin of) believing men and believing women]; [وَٱللَّهُ يَعۡلَمُ مُتَقَلَّبَكُمۡ وَمَثۡوَٮٰكُمۡ  – And Allah knows well your moving about, and your place of rest]; Ibn Abbaas [radiyallaahu-anhumaa] said this means, ‘’Allaah knows your moving about in this worldly life and your place of rest in the afterlife.’’ Ikrimah [radiyallaahu-anhu] said that this mean, ‘’Allaah knows your moving from the loins of men [i.e. the sperm from your fathers] to the wombs of women [i.e. where the sperm is deposited in the wombs of your mothers], and your resting places in the graves’’. Muqaatil [rahimahullaah] said that this means, ‘’Allaah knows your moving during the day and your resting places in the evening.’’ [Ref 3]
