A reminder to the believers

I take refuge with Allaah, the Exalted, from the accursed devil.

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَـنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Bismillah-ir-Rahman-ir-Raheem: In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.

Welcome to my blog and praise the Magnificent Lord as you enter: Allahu Akbar: Allah is the Greatest .

May the Peace and Blessings of Allah Azza wa Jal, our Lord Glorified and Praised be He, be upon our beloved  Prophet, his Family, and Companions.

A reminder to the believers.

المص

(1. Alif-Lam-Mim-Sad.)

كِتَـبٌ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ فَلاَ يَكُن فِى صَدْرِكَ حَرَجٌ مِّنْهُ لِتُنذِرَ بِهِ وَذِكْرَى لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ

(2. (This is the) Book (the Qur’an) sent down unto you, so let not your breast be narrow therefrom, that you warn thereby; and a reminder unto the believers.)

اتَّبِعُواْ مَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكُم مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ وَلاَ تَتَّبِعُواْ مِن دُونِهِ أَوْلِيَآءَ قَلِيلاً مَّا تَذَكَّرُونَ

(3. Follow what has been sent down unto you from your Lord, and follow not any Awliya’ (protectors), besides Him (Allah). Little do you remember!)

Surah 7 Al Araf Verse 1-3

Tafsir Ibn Kathir

(We mentioned before the explanation of the letters ﴿such as, Alif-Lam, that are in the beginning of some Surahs in the Qur’an.

((This is the) Book (the Qur’an) sent down unto you (O Muhammad)), from your Lord,

(so let not your breast be narrow therefrom,) meaning, having doubt about it according to Mujahid, Qatadah and As-Suddi. It was also said that the meaning here is: `do not hesitate to convey the Qur’an and warn with it,’

(Therefore be patient as did the Messengers of strong will) (46:35). Allah said here,

(that you warn thereby) meaning, `We sent down the Qur’an so that you may warn the disbelievers with it,’

(and a reminder unto the believers). Allah then said to the world,

(Follow what has been sent down unto you from your Lord) meaning, follow and imitate the unlettered Prophet , who brought you a Book that was revealed for you, from the Lord and master of everything.

(and follow not any Awliya’, besides Him (Allah)) meaning, do not disregard what the Messenger brought you and follow something else, for in this case, you will be deviating from Allah’s judgment to the decision of someone else. Allah’s statement,

(Little do you remember!) is similar to,

(And most of mankind will not believe even if you desire it eagerly)(12:103), and;

(And if you obey most of those on the earth, they will mislead you far away from Allah’s path)(6:116), and,

(And most of them believe not in Allah except that they attribute partners unto Him)(12:106).
