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 2 [Verses 23 to 31]: Another generation will be raised up:
Chapter 76: (Al-Insan: The Man)
(Revealed at Makkah: 2 section; 31 verses)

1. Translation:

23 Surely We have revealed the Qur’an to thee, in portions.

24 So wait patiently for the judgment of thy Lord,a and obey not a sinner or an ungrateful one among them.

25 And glorify the name of thy Lord morning and evening.

26 And during part of the night adore Him, and glorify Him throughout a long night.

27 Surely these love the transitory life and neglect a grievous day before them.

28 We created them and made firm their make, and, when We will, We can bring in their place the like of them by change.a

29 Surely this is a Reminder; so whoever will, let him take a way to his Lord.

30 And you will not, unless Allah please.a Surely Allah is ever Knowing, Wise —

31 He admits whom He pleases to His mercy; and the wrongdoers — He has prepared for them a painful chastisement.

 2. Commentary:

24a. This shows that the blessings mentioned in the previous section will also find a manifestation in this life; the Divine judgment will bring about the fall of one party and the rise of another. [Back to verse 24]

28a. The mention of the grievous day in the previous verse and the statement here that another people will take the place of these are clear prophecies for this life. Hence it is called a warning in the verse that follows. [Back to verse 28]

30a. As the context clearly shows, the faithful are spoken of here; the previous verse states that whoever will, let him take a way to his Lord, and the verse that follows refers to the faithful in the words, He admits whom He pleases to His mercy. The meaning is that true and sincere believers have so completely submitted themselves to the Divine will and are so completely resigned that they have no desires of their own, and all their desires are in accordance with Allah’s pleasure.

Taking the words as a general statement, there can still be little doubt as to their real significance. The chapter opens with the clear statement, We have truly shown him the way; he may be thankful or unthankful; so that man has not been constrained by God to adopt a particular course, whether for good or for evil. The end of the chapter is equally clear: Surely this is a Reminder; so whoever will, let him take a way to his Lord. The words — you will not, unless Allah please — therefore mean that man’s choice would have no effect, if it did not please Allah. We can easily see that there are two things necessary for the guidance of man: firstly, the revelation of the Reminder by Allah, and secondly, the acceptance of that Reminder by man. If Allah had not pleased to reveal the Reminder, man’s choice would have been nowhere. [Back to verse 30]
