English Translation of Al-Quran
.Surah Al-Qasas [The Narration]
Ayat 62. And (remember) the Day when Allah will call to them, and say: “Where are My (so-called) partners whom you used to assert?”
Ayat 63. Those about whom the Word will have come true (to be punished) will say: “Our Lord! These are they whom we led astray. We led them astray, as we were astray ourselves. We declare our innocence (from them) before You. It was not us they worshipped.”
Tafseer of Surah Al-Qasas Ayat 62 & 63. That Day (Allah) will call to them, and say “Where are my ´partners´?- whom ye imagined (to be such)?” Those against whom the charge will be proved, will say: “Our Lord! These are the ones whom we led astray: we led them astray, as we were astray ourselves: we freed ourselves (from them) in Thy presence: it was not us they worshipped.” This and the next verse are concerned with the examination of those who neglected truth and righteousness and went after the worship of false gods, viz, their own lusts. These were the “partners” they associated with Allah. Insofar as they were embodied in false or wicked leaders, the leaders will disown responsibility for them. “We ourselves went wrong, and they followed our example, because it suited them: they worshipped, not us, but their own lusts’ Cf. 10:28 . False worship often names others, but really it is the worship of the Self. The others whom they name will have nothing to do with them when the awful Penalty stands in the sight of both. Then each wrongdoer will have to look at his own case. The wicked will then realize the gravity of the situation and wish that they had accepted the true guidance of Allah’s Messengers.
English Translation of Hadith
Hazrat Ubada bin As-Samit (May Allah be pleased with him) said: I, along with a group of people, gave the pledge of allegiance to The Messenger of Allah [SAWW](PBUH). He said, “I take your Pledge on the condition that you (1) will not join partners in worship with Allah, (2) will not steal, (3) will not commit illegal sexual intercourse, (4) will not kill your offspring (for fear of poverty), (5) will not slander, (6) and will not disobey me when I order you to do good. Whoever among you will abide by his pledge, his reward will be with Allah, and whoever commits any of those sins and receives the punishment in this world, that punishment will be an expiation for his sins and purification; but if Allah screens him, then it will be up to Allah to punish him if He will or excuse Him, if He will.”
[Al-Bukhari Book 05, Chapter 58, Hadith # 232].
Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al-Qasas Ayat 62. “The Day when Allah will call to them, and say: “Where are My (so-called) partners whom you used to assert?” This Hadith here brings forth the attention of Muslim to their obligations, being fully conscious of their accountability to Allah (SWT) they are apt to make full efforts to provide justice and peace to other people. Shirk (polytheism) is an absolutely unpardonable sin. All other sins, how many and how grave they may be, can be forgiven by Allah. He will pardon them if He likes and send the sinful persons straight to Jannah, or keep them for a while in Hell and then shift them to Jannah. In any case, the punishment of Hell will not be eternal for them, as it is for the Mushriks (polytheists).
