May Allah (SWT) grant us and all the Marhoomeen Forgiveness and Jannatul Firdaus (Aameen)



Surah Al-Qamar 54: - (The Moon)

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Most-Merciful

“(The people of) 'Ad rejected (their prophet). How then was My torment and My warnings? [I81 We did send to them a furious wind in a day of lasting bad luck, [19]
plucking people away, a s if they were trunks of uprooted palm-trees. [20]
How then was My torment and My warnings? [21]
And indeed We have made the Qur'an easy for seeking advice. So, is there one to seek advice? [22] (The people of) Thamood rejected the warners. [23]
So they said, "Shall we follow a single human being from among us? Then we will be in error and insanity. [24]

COMMENTARY: All these five nations were the strongest and resourceful. It was not possible for any of the subdued nations to overcome any of these superpowers. The current set of verses show how the superpowers were destroyed by Divine punishment. After describing the punishment of each nation, the Qur'an repeats the following statement as a refrain: (How then was My torment and My warnings?). That is, when the Divine chastisement overtook these nations who were very powerful in terms of might, wealth and number were killed like flies and mosquitoes. In addition, the following verse is repeated to advise both the Muslims and the infidels in general:

"indeed We have made the Qur'an easy for seeking advice. So, is there one to seek advice?"

This is to indicate that the only way to avoid the terrible chastisement is to take to the advice of the Qur'an. Allah has made the Qur'an easy to the extent of paying heed to the admonition and warnings. Only the most ill-fated person will not take advantage of the warnings.

A long time ago in some village there lived a man with his family. They had never seen a mirror in their life.

One day the man found a mirror in the jungle. When he saw his image in it he thought it was his father’s photo, he became very happy and took it along with him. He used to speak to the mirror every day.

His wife became suspicious of him and one day when the man was out to work; she looked into the mirror and exclaimed, “Ah now I get it. So this is the lady who my husband talks to every day.”

She became angry and showed the mirror to her mother-in-law. Her Mother-in-law saw her image in it and said: “Don’t worry, be grateful that she is an old woman and will die soon.”
