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 3 [Verses 41 to 55]: Pharaoh and the Prophet’s opponents:
Chapter 54: (Al-Qamar: The Moon)
(Revealed at Makkah: 3 sections; 55 verses)

1. Translation:

41 And certainly the warning came to Pharaoh’s people.

42 They rejected all Our signs, so We overtook them with the seizing of the Mighty, the Powerful.

43 Are your disbelievers better than these, or have you an immunity in the scriptures?

44 Or say they: We are a host allied together to help each other?

45 Soon shall the hosts be routed, and they will show (their) backs.a

46 Nay, the Hour is their promised time, and the Hour is most grievous and bitter.a

47 Surely the guilty are in error and distress.

48 On the day when they are dragged into the Fire upon their faces: Taste the touch of hell.a

49 Surely We have created everything according to a measure.a

50 And Our command is but once, as the twinkling of an eye.

51 And certainly We destroyed your fellows, but is there anyone who will mind?

52 And everything they do is in the writings.

53 And everything small and great is written down.

54 Surely the dutiful will be among Gardens and rivers,

55 In the seat of truth, with a most Powerful King.

 2. Commentary:

45a. It is related by Ibn ‘Abbas that the Holy Prophet prayed within his tent on the day of Badr, saying: "O Lord, I beseech Thee according to Thy covenant and Thy promise; O Lord, if such is Thy will, Thou mayest not be served after this day". Abu Bakr took his hand and said: "Allah is sufficient for thee, O Messenger of Allah". So he went out and he recited: "Soon shall the hosts be routed, and they will show their backs; nay, the Hour is their promised time, and the Hour is most grievous and bitter" (B. 56:89). This shows how the Prophet and his companions read prophecies of the vanquishment of the opponents in words relating apparently to the Hereafter. [Back to verse 45]

46a. See the last note, which shows that the Holy Prophet understood the Hour to mean the hour or time of the discomfiture of the Quraish, and looked upon the battle of Badr as fulfilling this prophecy. [Back to verse 46]

48a. The Quraish who were slain at Badr were removed to a pit for burial, and the Prophet is reported as having addressed them thus: "Surely we have found true what our Lord promised us: have you too found true what your Lord promised you?" (Ibn Hisham). The punishment of this life is called here a touch of hell. [Back to verse 48]

49a. So that even nations and people cannot go beyond a certain limit. [Back to verse 49]
