Surah Ibrahim – Ayah 10

اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللَّهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ
اَعُوْذُبِااللّٰہِ مِنَ الشَّیْطٰنِ الرَّجِيْم
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

*_Today’s Thought for the day is from Surah Ibrahim Ayah 10_*

*قَالَتۡ رُسُلُهُمۡ اَفِى اللّٰهِ شَكٌّ فَاطِرِ السَّمٰوٰتِ وَالۡاَرۡضِ‌ؕ يَدۡعُوۡكُمۡ لِيَـغۡفِرَ لَـكُمۡ مِّنۡ ذُنُوۡبِكُمۡ وَيُؤَخِّرَكُمۡ اِلٰٓى اَجَلٍ مُّسَمًّى‌ؕ قَالُوۡۤا اِنۡ اَنۡتُمۡ اِلَّا بَشَرٌ مِّثۡلُنَاؕ تُرِيۡدُوۡنَ اَنۡ تَصُدُّوۡنَا عَمَّا كَانَ يَعۡبُدُ اٰبَآؤُنَا فَاۡتُوۡنَا بِسُلۡطٰنٍ مُّبِيۡنٍ.(10)*

*_Their Messengers said: Can there be any doubt about Allah, the Originator of the heavens and the earth? He calls you so that He may forgive some of your sins and give you respite for an appointed term. They said: You are but human beings like ourselves! You want to turn us away from that which our forefathers used to worship; then bring us some clear proof.(10)_*

ان کے پیغمبروں نے کہا کیا (تم کو) خدا (کے بارے) میں شک ہے جو آسمانوں اور زمین کا پیدا کرنے والا ہے۔ وہ تمہیں اس لیے بلاتا ہے کہ تمہارے گناہ بخشے اور (فائدہ پہنچانے کے لیے) ایک مدت مقرر تک تم کو مہلت دے۔ وہ بولے کہ تم تو ہمارے ہی جیسے آدمی ہو۔ تمہارا یہ منشاء ہے کہ جن چیزوں کو ہمارے بڑے پوجتے رہے ہیں ان (کے پوجنے) سے ہم کو بند کر دو تو (اچھا) کوئی کھلی دلیل لاؤ (یعنی معجزہ دکھاؤ).(10)

The Messengers try to clear the doubt of the disbelievers about the message being sent by Allah Subhanahu wa taa’la.‼️ *They point to the heavens and the earth as witnesses to convince them that His being is the only Lord of mankind and the whole universe, doubting about this sounds totally peculiar and unacceptable.* _Everything in the heavens and the earth testifies to the truth of Allah Azzawajal being the Creator and Originator of all. *The heavens and the earth are two very clear signs of Allah Azzawajal’s existence.* A mere reference to them is sufficient to quickly help any straying person come back to his senses. The messengers do not add anything to this quick reference, as they know it to be sufficient._

*_Act of the Day is:_* to understand the enormous Grace and Mercy of Allah Subhanahu wa taa’la wherein HE SWT *calls personally to every human being to believe in HIM* so that HE SWT gives them respite while they reflect and begin to take action by turning to Tauheed to avert HIS punishment.

–To understand that the mushriks of every age believed in the existence of Allah Azzawajal and acknowledged that HE SWT was the Creator of the heavens and the earth, but they did not accept the message, its logical result, that HE SWT alone was entitled to their worship.❗ That is why the Messengers asked them: Do you have any doubt about the existence of Allah Azzawajal being the sole Lord of the universe?

–To understand and thank Allah Subhanahu wa taa’la for sending Messengers from the Human race itself which makes it easy for us to follow and practice the religion by following them. *Instead the disbelievers object to this choice and make of it grounds for suspecting the validity of the message.* _They claim that what the messengers call on them to believe in is a mere wish to turn them away from what their forefathers worshipped. They do not bother to ask themselves why the messengers should wish to turn them away from that. All ignorant societies are rigid. Hence people of such societies do not reflect on the true nature of what their forefathers worshipped, and why they objected to such false deities. Nor do they think about the nature of the new call. Instead, they ask for a miracle to force them to believe._

*_May Allah Subhanahu wa taa’la strengthen our Imaan and continue to shower HIS Grace and Mercy upon by keeping us on the straight path. Aa’meen Ya’Rabbul Aa’lameen._*
