Revelation that was given to all of the Apostles and Prophets make everlasting truth clear: Those who mock merely undo themselves; we should consider the signs of Allah (swt). Gracious. We should glorify Him with praises and gratitude for all the favors that He has bestowed on us, rather than engaging in negative behavior, such as being hostile, killing innocent people.
We should keep away from fraudulent actions and we should be honest and straight in our daily matters. Justice is the central virtue in the Religion Islam and in the sight of Allah (swt), and the avoidance of fraud, aggression, oppressive, resentful unsympathetic and deceit. Our whole life’s conduct, physical and spiritual depends on Allah’s (swt). True guidance and His mercies, and in order for us to receive His guidance, we need to respect and follow the true teachings of all of His blessed messengers which He sent down with revelations. The revelations came from Allah (swt), the Most Gracious, and it is one of the greatest signs of His Grace and His favors. He is the source of light, and His light is diffused throughout the universe. He has given to man the capacity to understand clearly the relations of things, and to explain them. See Al-Qur’an: chapter 55 verses 1-4.
All natures obey Allah (swt). Even some of the Jinns, one time the Jinns were discussing the recitation of the Holy Qur’an, as mentioned in Al-Qur’an:
Say: It has been revealed to me that a company of Jinns listened (to the Qur’an). They said, ‘We have really heard a wonderful Recital! 72:1.
It gives guidance to the Right, and we have believed therein: we shall not join (in worship) any (gods) with our Lord. 72:2.
’And Exalted is the Majesty of our Lord: He has taken neither a wife nor a son. 72:3.
There were some foolish ones among us, who used to utter extravagant lies against Allah; 72:4,
‘But we do think that no man or spirit should say aught that untrue against Allah. 72:5.
These passages reflect a very mystic doctrine which I have mentioned earlier that revelation is not a mechanical or material thing. It has to be protected so that it will not be destroyed or corrupted by ignorance, or the power of evil. See chapter 72 verses 26-28 in Al-Qur’an.
It is clear to us from these verses how revelations from Allah (swt). To His messengers were guarded against evil. Allah (swt) Made sure that the revelations arrived safely at their destinations. This is how much the revelations meant to Allah (swt) and His Messengers. The messengers made huge sacrifices in order to practice and preach the true Religion of Allah (swt), which is Islam, as mentioned in the Holy Qur’an: The Religion before Allah is Islam (submission to His Will): 3.19
All the bloodshed and the wrong things that are taking place among the Muslim Umma could cause terrible grief on the hearts of Allah’s (swt) Messengers.
Our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (owbp) was given the Holy Qur’an as a gift, which he worked really hard for, and to observe how the people are misusing it to fit their own agendas is extremely sad. The Holy Qur’an states:
Praise be to Allah, Who hath sent to His Servant the Book, and hath allowed therein no Crookedness: 18.1
When trouble became inevitable the first thing we as Muslims should do is turn to Allah (swt) in prayers and in humble supplication.
One of the greatest signs of Allah (swt), is His revelation, grace and favors to mankind as mentioned in Chapter 55 verse 1-4 of the Holy Qur’an. Justice is a heavenly virtue which many of us as Muslims may not achieve, because of our fraudulent actions, arrogance and pride as a result of our unwillingness to raise our hands in humble supplications to Allah (swt) or to exercise justice.
During the days of old, the people who used to curse the Apostles, Allah (swt) return their curse back on themselves as they were rebellious and evil. Their hearts were hardened so Allah (swt) ordered drastic actions to be taken on them to place a strong fear and terror in their hearts for (Allah’s swt) sufferings. These sufferings were given to several punishments: Execution, Crucifixion, cutting off of hands or feet from opposite sides, Exile from the land where the Apostles used to dwell. Allah (swt) says in Al-Qur’an:
As to those who reject Faith, – if they had everything on earth, and twice repeated, to give as ransom for the penalty of the Day of Judgment, it would never be accepted of them, theirs would be a grievous penalty. 5:36.
Their wish will be to get out of the Fire, but never will they get out there from: their penalty will be one that endures. 005:037
Also orders were given to the Prophets Moses and Jesus (pbut) that a “Life is for a life, eye for an eye, nose for a nose, ear for an ear, tooth for tooth and wound for wounds.
Allah (swt) also enforced His law of mercy and justice to those who repented, as well to teach the people about His mercies and forbearing kindness. Allah (swt) says in Al-Qur’an:
(They are fond of) listening to falsehood, of devouring anything forbidden. If they do come to thee, either judge between them, or decline to interfere. If thou decline, they cannot hurt thee in the least. If thou judge, judge in equity between them. For Allah loveth those who judge in equity. 5:42
An order was also given to cut off the thieves’ hands, male or female just as it states in the Holy Qur’an Chapter 5 v. 41. Those who had drawn the curse of Allah (swt) on themselves were to be transformed into apes and swine as it states in the Qur’an Chapter 5 verses 63-66, their evil actions led up to fraud, infidelity, and sorcery. Evil was piling up and men and women became witch doctors and evil wizards and they cast their evil spell on those who tried to strive in the path of goodness and if the innocent people’s faith was weak then they will succeed in seducing the innocent persons with evil conduct. Some of the innocent people’s actions will become like Cain’s actions when he murdered his brother Abel as in Chapter 5 verse 33 of the Holy Qur’an and on this account the laws were enforced on the people that the punishment for those who slay an innocent person it will be as if they slay the entire world’s population. If anyone saved one person’s life, it will be as if they saved the lives of the entire world.
The root which many virtues spring from is through humble supplication.
All the messengers from our Beloved Parents Hazrat Adam and Eve (pbut) right down to our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (owbp) made humble supplications to Allah (swt). Check the Holy Qur’an for examples of the humble supplications of our spiritual parents Adam and Eve, (007:023), for Moses’ (pbuh) (010:088), Noah (pbuh) (010:45 to 47), Jesus (pbuh) (005:117). Right through my topic I mentioned the Apostle’s humble supplication and where most of them were granted. Many Imams’ do not make humble supplications. I asked myself who really these Imams’s are following. Are they higher than the Apostles? Are we supposed to follow Imam’s like this?
