Quran Quote  : 

مۡ يَكُنِ الَّذِيۡنَ كَفَرُوۡا مِنۡ اَهۡلِ الۡكِتٰبِ وَالۡمُشۡرِكِيۡنَ مُنۡفَكِّيۡنَ حَتّٰى تَاۡتِيَهُمُ الۡبَيِّنَةُۙ‏ ﴿۱﴾

1. The infidels among the people of the Book and the polytheists would not change their religion (1) until clear proof (2) is conveyed to them.

1. It means the Christians and Jews of Arabia and the polytheists were so staunch in their infidelity and obduracy that under no circumstances were they prepared to give up their religion. Firstly, the people of Arabia were very stonehearted and rebellious. Secondly, in this region no Prophet had come from Hazrat Ismail (On whom be peace) until the advent of the Holy Prophet which had helped to increase their ignorance.

From this verse emerge two issues:

1. Although both the People of the Book and the polytheists are all infidels, but because the People of the Book have a link with some Prophet their laws are lenient. Observe, here the People of the Book are mentioned first, animals slaughtered by them and their women are lawful. If they accept faith, they will receive double rewards. Hence, if the link to a Prophet can provide the infidels with so many benefits, then any Muslim who can create a special link with the Holy Prophet ?what can we say about him وسلم

2.The Holy Prophet reformed such a nation whose reformation apparently seemed impossible.

3. To act upon the heavenly revealed books prior to their annulment was a means of guidance but after their annulment it became heresy, just like the old prescribed medicine now becomes harmful to the patient.

By "clear proof is meant the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم because he is the proof of the Oneness of Allah Almighty, of ia every religious tenet and of his own blessed personality i.e. O My Beloved! The people of Arabia were waiting for their guidance for you. Or, O My Beloved! In this region nobody could have provided guidance besides you.

If any awe-inspiring and wrathful Prophet had been sent here, he would have destroyed them out of despondency, by cursing them and made the region totally desolate like what had happened to Thamud and Aad. But you O My Beloved! Have made them believers and your Companions and provided grandeur to the cities of Makkah and Madina. It should be remembered proof is that through which one can prove one's claim, while clear proof is that one against which there can be no criticism or arguments, like sunshine is for the sun, or smoke is for fire, or a state witness among the witnesses. Since the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم is the embodiment of miracles, then him remains pure and truthful in a place like Arabia without being tutored by anyone, being all-knowing and omniscient about defection and testimony. Divinity of Allah Almighty, are themselves clear proofs about the Holy Prophet's صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم prophethood. For this reason the Holy Prophet has been called Proof .

رَسُوۡلٌ مِّنَ اللّٰهِ يَتۡلُوۡا صُحُفًا مُّطَهَّرَةًۙ‏ ﴿۲﴾

2. By a Messenger (3 )of Allah reciting pure Scripture (4)

3.The Holy Prophet. Here, it is not being said to whom the Prophet sent. This tells us that the Holy Prophet is the Prophet for the entire creation of Allah Almighty. The prophet and the attorney both do different works, but the attorney does so on his own responsibility while the Prophet does so at the responsibility of the sender because the speeds and deeds of the Prophet are not his own but that of the sender. Every word and deed of the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم every expression is from Allah Almighty, because he is Allah's Prophet and a Prophet under every condition.

Thus, raising objection against the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم is equal to raising objection against Allah Almighty. The praise of the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم is indeed praise of Allah Almighty. It should be remembered that the TANWEEN on RASOOL i.c. RASOOLUN is one of respect i.e. a dignified Prophet who is a Prophet from eternity. He was already a Prophet while Hazrat Adam (On whom be peace) was still between water and dust i.e. still assuming the nature of man. He will be a Prophet for eternity. A man after death is out of the kingdom of the king but he still remains the follower of the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم even after his death. That is why the follower is made to identify the Holy Prophet in the grave. Prior to the advent of the Holy Prophet these questions were not asked in the grave.

He is Prophet under all circumstances,in a state of sleep and wakefulness, being in motion, etc. For this reason emulating every habit of the Holy Prophet is an act of worship for us. He is a Prophet unto The everybody, so much so, that on the Day of Judgement the Prophets who had been making their followers to recite their Kalimah would now be reciting the Kalimah of the Holy Prophet Allah صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم From is told that his Prophethood is not The through your votes and support, that you may make him to retire or remove him, but he is . Prophet from Allah Almighty Just as you cannot extinguish the light of the moon and the sun. likewise you cannot diminish his greatness.

4. It means the Holy Quran, which is the collection of all the previous revealed books. and is pure from interpolation i.e. it has been revealed from a pure place through the pure angels to a pure Prophet. It will remain for eternity on pure tongues, in pure hearts and in the pure hands. Also, it is protected from any addition or alteration. It should be remembered that the recitation of the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم is a miracle as he read and - taught it to others without anyone's tutorship, understood and made others to understand it. Our recitation is not a miracle because we are taught its recitation, its laws of recitation, its laws and mystical meanings from qualified Huffaaz and scholars of the Holy Quran. Also, it is through the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم that the angels received the heavenly Quran.

وَمَا تَفَرَّقَ الَّذِيۡنَ اُوۡتُوۡا الۡكِتٰبَ اِلَّا مِنۡۢ بَعۡدِ مَا جَآءَتۡهُمُ الۡبَيِّنَةُؕ‏ ﴿۴﴾

4. But the people of the Book became divided after clear proof had come to them (6).

6. It means prior to the advent of the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم all the People of the Book were unanimous that they would believe in the coming of the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم But when the Holy Prophet .صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم came into the world, some believed in him and others rejected him.

From this emerge a few benefits:

1. Those from the People of the Book had received only the words of the Book and their meanings did not obtain faith, but those who obtained the light of the book and its mystical meanings received faith. This is the very condition of the Holy Quran that its mere recitation and superficial meanings will not provide faith. Even the Aryans and Christians too, read this. Likewise, the mere observation of the Holy Prophet's صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم human form will not provide anyone with faith.

His human form was seen by the devil and by Abu Jahl. But only those who behold his illuminating form become people of faith.

2. Some people of the Book had acquired the knowledge of the book while others had received it through Divine inspiration. Those who only had its superficial knowledge remained infidels while those with Divinely inspired knowledge, accepted faith. The tillage field does not fulfil its needs through the water of the well, until it does not rain.

3. The sin of the scholar is severer than the sin of the ignorant person. Observe, here Allah Almighty has specifically censured the People of the Book, although similar is the condition of the polytheists as well.

4. Not everyone can receive beneficence from the Prophet. Some remain bereft as well. The bat cannot obtain light from the sun.

Topic : Allah Books

وَمَاۤ اُمِرُوۡۤا اِلَّا لِيَعۡبُدُوۡا اللّٰهَ مُخۡلِصِيۡنَ لَهُ الدِّيۡنَ ۙ حُنَفَآءَ وَيُقِيۡمُوۡا الصَّلٰوةَ وَيُؤۡتُوۡا الزَّكٰوةَ‌ وَذٰلِكَ دِيۡنُ الۡقَيِّمَةِؕ‏ ﴿۵﴾

5. And they were only commanded to worship Allah, being exclusively one sided, and should establish Salaah and give Zakaat (7). And this is the Right Religion (8).

7. It means the People of the Book were given some orders through the Holy Prophet which were found in the old and new Testaments as well i.e. in Taurat and Injeel. Like to worship Allah Almighty, acquire and keep good beliefs and to remain aloof from the irreligious people, the firm commitment to uphold the institution of Salah and Zakat, although there is a difference in their fulfilment, but the principle is the same.

Then why do the People of the Book still flee and flare up with the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم It should be remembered that having pure Islamic beliefs, sincerity in the observance of religion and inner disgust for the infidels, adopting difference in the outer appearance, character and practices is an act of a purity To perform the Salaah regularly, punctually and correctly with the presence of heart and mind, to establish Salaah as an th institution, doing all those deeds which will gain the pleasure of Allah Almighty are acts of worship, although Salah and Zakat are they have been mentioned separately.

8. Which is still continuing from the time of Hazrat Adam (On whom be peace) up to now.

From this verse emerge two issues:

1. The infidels are duty-bound to different acts of worship as well i.e. after accepting Islam they should perform their Salaah and give their Zakat as is being understood from "they were commanded".

2. That beliefs and deeds are both important in religion, because Allah Almighty has declared sincerity, Salaah, etc. as right faith. It should be remembered that some Jews and Christians had abandoned true acts of worship and had adopted monastic life, forsaking the world, like the present day mendicants and religious charlatans who are perpetually under the influence of hemp and marijuana and had expressed the thought that there is no need for good deeds, and like the Marjiyya and Rafzis of today. The view of both groups has been refuted in this verse.

اِنَّ الَّذِيۡنَ كَفَرُوۡا مِنۡ اَهۡلِ الۡكِتٰبِ وَ الۡمُشۡرِكِيۡنَ فِىۡ نَارِ جَهَنَّمَ خٰلِدِيۡنَ فِيۡهَا‌ؕ اُولٰٓٮِٕكَ هُمۡ شَرُّ الۡبَرِيَّةِؕ‏ ﴿۶﴾

6.Undoubtedly, all the infidels among the people of the Book and the polytheists(9) are in the fire of hell (10), to remain therein forever. They are the worst (11) of creatures.

9. It means the polytheists and the People of the Book; both are equal in actual infidelity. Hence, in the actual punishment i.e. eternal stay in Hell, too both will be equal. Although because of the difference in the nature of infidelity there will be a difference in punishment. Thus, some will be in the highest region of Hell receiving lighter punishment while others will be in the bottom region of Hell receiving severe punishment. Thus, there can be no objection raised in the verse. It should be observed that the People of the Book were proud of their knowledge and being from the household of the Prophets, while the polytheists took pride in being of service to the Ka'bah and being from the progeny of Hazrat fr Ebrahim (On whom be peace). In this verse there is a repudiation of both their views. From this we learn that the punishment of every type H of infidelity is the eternal abode in Hell. The of one who rejects Allah Almighty is the rejecter of the Prophet, the rejecter of the Holy Quran and the enemy of the Noble Companions and th the household members of the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم They are all equal in No punishment. However, knowledge and family lineage are beneficial for the believers, but they would be useless to the infidels.

10. It should be remembered that although the entry of the infidels into Hell would be only after the Day of Judgement, but because this is a certainty, or because infidelity is the certain cause of this entry, entry into infidelity is like entry into Hell, therefore it has been stated here that they are in the fire of Hell. It should also be remembered that some of the infidels would be kept separately from Hell like Hazrat Abu Talib, and some will be in the cooler regions of Hell, but since most of the infidels would be in the fire, hence both these groups would be punished in the fire. In the cooler region fire is at a distance, which would provide coolness. Thus, it has been declared for the infidels that they are in the fire i.e. the punishment of all the infidels is fire, some are punished near the fire and some are punished away from the fire.

11. It means all the People of the Book. despite being scholars or from the progeny of the Prophets, and the polytheists despite The rendering service to the sacred Ka'bah or being from the progeny of Hazrat Ebrahim (On whom be peace) are worse than the entire creation, it's on dogs and pigs and the impurities, etc. because Hell is for them. It is they who are the curse of Allah Almighty and His entire creation. There was no place for them in the Ark of Hazrat Nuh (On whom be peace), although all the animals were given refuge in it. This is because they are the traitors of the Divine State. No other creation is a traitor. It should be remembered that by creation is meant the creation of that period. Shaitaan and the Pharaoh are from the earlier creation while Dajjal is from the later creation. Thus, the meaning of the verse is crystal clear..

 اِنَّ الَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا وَعَمِلُوۡا الصّٰلِحٰتِۙ اُولٰٓٮِٕكَ هُمۡ خَيۡرُ الۡبَرِيَّةِؕ‏ ﴿۷﴾

7. Verily, those who believe and do righteous deeds, they are the best (12) creatures.

12. It means those people who adhered strictly to the laws of Islam in the world and did all types of good deeds according to their power are superior to the entire creation, angels, jinns, etc. because paradise is created for them. The Beauteous Vision of Allah Almighty is for them. Angels carrying the Throne of Allah Almighty are offering prayers for them. It is for them that the heavens and the earth weep after their death. It should be remembered that all the deeds, which are good will, please Allah Almighty. The sacrifice of sleep by the Companion of the Cave i.e. Hazrat Abu Bakr the, on the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم sacrifice of Hazrat Alli Murtaza of his Asr Their reward is with their Lord,

Salaah at Khaibar and Abu Umayyah Zamri's discarding the word Kufr from his mouth are all examples of pious deeds. On the other hand recitation of the Kalimah by the hypocrites and their construction of Masjide Daraar are Examples of evil deeds.

From this emerge a few issues:

1. Ordinary believers are better than ordinary angels and special believers are superior to special angels.

2.The deeds of man are better than the deeds of all other creations, because Paradise is only for man.

3. No pious believer is mean. He is the noblest of the creation. Likewise no infidel is noble.

Topic : Good Deeds

جَزَآؤُهُمۡ عِنۡدَ رَبِّهِمۡ جَنّٰتُ عَدۡنٍ تَجۡرِىۡ مِنۡ تَحۡتِهَا الۡاَنۡهٰرُ خٰلِدِيۡنَ فِيۡهَاۤ اَبَدًا‌ؕ رَضِىَ اللّٰهُ عَنۡهُمۡ وَرَضُوۡا عَنۡهُ‌ؕ ذٰلِكَ لِمَنۡ خَشِىَ رَبَّهٗ‏ ﴿۸﴾

8. Their reward is with their Lord, which are Paradises of eternity beneath which streams flow, wherein they will remain forever (13). Allah is well pleased with them, and they are well pleased with Him (14). This is for him who fears his Lord (15)

13. From this verse emerge a few issues: 1. The worldly bounties are no reward for the pious. It is a form of allowance or fringe benefit, as is being understood from "by their Lord." In the world, calamities, too, would come.

2. The bounties of the Hereafter are in exchange of faith and good deeds. If you want to reap good then sow good, as is understood from "their reward."

3. The world's a stage, while Paradise is the actual abode as is understood from "habitation". By habitation means the actual abode. It is for this reason that the mine is called the quarry, as it is the actual place of minerals.

4. After entry into Paradise for the purpose of reward, there will be no exit from it nor will death take place as is understood from "abiding therein". Hazrat Adam's (On whom be peace) first stay in paradise and the Holy Prophet's صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم therein on the Night of Mi'raj was not for the purpose of reward. Therefore they had come back from it.

after arriving in Paradise inmates of Paradise, We are pleased with you, and will never be displeased with you. The ecstatic joy that this proclamation will provide for the inmates of Paradise is beyond description. In short, it should be remembered that pleasure is not opposite to wrath but it means happiness whose revelation would specially be made in Paradise. Otherwise, even in the world Allah Almighty was never displeased with them, nor were they displeased with Him.

From this emerge two issues:

1. The pleasure of Allah Almighty would be His greatest bounty of Paradise. For a lover there is no greater bounty than the pleasure of his beloved. For this reason it has been mentioned separately with greater emphasis. It is to gain this pleasure that Hazrat Khaleelullah Ebrahim (On whom be peace) offered the sacrifice of his son and Hazrat Imam Husain (May Allah be pleased with him) sacrificed his blessed life and that of his kith and kin. It is for this pleasure that the Muslim soldiers strive to gain martyrdom.

2. The pleasure of Allah Almighty and His Beauteous Vision will not be obtained in exchange of any good deeds but it is the special favour of Allah Almighty. Or, that they are pleased with Allah Almighty and He is pleased with them in the world. The signs of Allah Almighty's pleasures are the following: that a person receives guidance to do good deeds; the hearts of the creation turn towards Him and they remember Him well among themselves; the angels too love such persons. The signs of man's pleasure for Allah Almighty means that he is totally pleased with Allah Almighty during bereavement and happiness, during prosperity and adversity i.e. he is pleased with his Lord under all conditions. He carries out all his severe religious commands with absolute joy. When the patient is pleased with the doctor, then he will be pleased with his bitter medicine and surgical procedures. Only some fortunate people obtain this favour.

15. It means pleasure is for fortunate people whose hearts are filled with the fear of Allah Almighty. It should be remembered that fear can be for harm like the snake is afraid of the scorpion, and it can be of oppression like the 1 fear of an oppressive ruler. The result of this is hatred. Fear can be out of love like the awe in the court of a benevolent king, or the fear in the heart of a child for a compassionate father. The outcome of this is obedience. Fear of Allah Almighty should be of this type. This type of fear is in proportion to one's faith; the more complete the faith, the greater will be the fear of Allah Almighty. He in whose heart will be the fear of Allah Almighty, that heart will be bereft of the fear of the creation. In fact, the creation will fear him. From this verse we learn that one can say RADIYALLAHU ANHU (May Allah be pleased with him) with the name of every Saint and pious sage. This word is not restricted to the Noble Companions only. "Who fears" is of general nature.
