Our Motto : 'In-Allah-ha-Ma'anaa' ("Be not grieved, for surely Allah is with us." - The Holy Quran 9:40). We find spiritual strength, courage and comfort, in the times of trials and  hardships, from this Divine Quranic revelation that descended upon the pure heart of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him), so as to console and compose him during one of the most perilous moments of his life. <Please click the 'Our Motto' link on our homepage for more details>

Section/Ruku 4 [Verses 36 to 45]: Opposition to Truth is punished:
Chapter 43: (Zukhruf: Gold)
(Revealed at Makkah: 7 sections; 89 verses)

1. Translation:

36 And whoever turns himself away from the remembrance of the Beneficent, We appoint for him a devil, so he is his associate.
a

37 And surely they hinder them from the (right) path, and they think that they are guided aright.

38 Until when he comes to Us, he says: O would that between me and thee there were the distance of the East and the West!a so evil is the associate!

39 And as you did wrong, it will profit you naught this day that you are sharers in the chastisement.

40 Canst thou then make the deaf to hear or guide the blind and him who is in clear error?

41 So if We take thee away, still We shall exact retribution from them,

42 Or We shall show thee that which We promise thema— surely We are Possessors of power over them.

43 So hold fast to that which has been revealed to thee; surely thou art on the right path.

44 And surely it is a reminder for thee and thy people, and you will be questioned.

45 And ask those of Our messengers whom We sent before thee: Did We ever appoint gods to be worshipped besides the Beneficent?

 2. Commentary:

36a. As v. 37 shows, the devil here is the evil companion who leads man to evil. [Back to verse 36]

38a. The word which I translate the East and the West is mashriqain, which would literally signify the two Easts. But the dual number in such cases often denotes the thing mentioned with its opposite. Thus mashriqain means the place of sunrise and the place of sunset (LL). [Back to verse 38]

42a. V. 41 describes the general law of the punishment of the wicked; even if the Prophet dies, the wicked will meet their doom. But that the general statement should not give rise to any misconception, we are immediately told that the Prophet would see the discomfiture of his enemies with his own eyes. [Back to verse 42]
