Surah Ibrahim – Ayah 2

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

*_Today’s Thought for the day is from Surah Ibrahim Ayah 2_*

*اللّٰهِ الَّذِىۡ لَهٗ مَا فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَمَا فِى الۡاَرۡضِ‌ؕ وَوَيۡلٌ لِّـلۡكٰفِرِيۡنَ مِنۡ عَذَابٍ شَدِيۡدِ.(2)*

*_[the path of] Allah, to Whom belongs all that is in the heavens and on earth. And woe to the disbelievers from a severe punishment.(2)_*

وہ خدا کہ جو کچھ آسمانوں اور زمین میں ہے سب اسی کا ہے۔ اور کافروں کے لیے عذاب سخت (کی وجہ) سے خرابی ہے.(2)

The Ayah gives a warning to the disbelievers for their rejection of the Messenger and the Message.‼️ The Messenger SAWS is calling the mankind to the path of Allah Subhanahu wa taa’la who is the creator and Owner of the entire universe. Whenever the word *لَهُ Lahu* is presented (first) it means *exclusive.* It is Only Allah Azzawajal who owns this world, no one else, and Allah Azzawajal does not share it with anyone. Hence this Guide(SAWS) and the Book of Guidance (Qur’an) is sent by HIM who owns everything for the benefit of mankind to bring them out of darkness to light. Therefore the people who have failed to recognise this fact are indeed losers and are bound to suffer.

*_Act of the Day is:_* to understand that when the proof and evidence is clearly established and those who reject and do not submit to HIS commands indeed deserve severe punishment.‼️ The word *عَضابٍ شَديد severe Punishment* means it is no ordinary punishment. *This is inflicted on them as a result of their rejection of the greatest blessing Allah Subhanahu wa taa’la has bestowed on humanity, that is, sending them a Messenger.* That is an act of Allah Azzawajal’s grace for entire mankind for which we cannot show enough gratitude as it deserves however hard we try. Yet Allah Subhanahu wa taa’la is Oft forgiving to our shortcomings.

*_May Allah Subhanahu wa taa’la grant us the ability to follow the Qur’an and foot steps of our Beloved Prophet SAWS and gain HIS pleasure. Aa’meen Ya’Rabbul Aa’lameen._*
