If you follow what Allah has revealed to you to follow, then you will become LEADERS.
'Kneel down' to Allah and His Commands by doing what He says, not telling Him in the mosque that He should show us the straight path and ignore the straight path He has shown us!
Surah 45. Al-Jaathia – Kneeling down
[Authors’ note] This is the 45th Surah of the Qur’an and it has 37 verses. The brief verses in this Surah take us along powerful concepts with Tasreef. All people, eventually, will kneel down before the laws of their Lord.
With the Glorious Name of God, the Instant and Sustaining Source of all Mercy and Kindness
45:1 H.M. Ha-Meem (Hakeem the Wise, Majeed the Glorious, states that),
45:2 The revelation of the Book is from God, the Mighty, the Wise.
45:3 In the heavens and earth are signs for all who are willing to attain conviction.
45:4 And in your own creative design, and in all the moving creatures that He has spread widely, there are signs for those who explore and attain certainty.
45:5 And in the alternation of the night and the day, and in the means of sustenance which God sends down from the height, reviving the earth which had been lifeless, and in the change of winds and seasons - in all this are signs for people who use their reason.
45:6 These are the verses of God We convey to you with truth. Then, in what HADITH, if not in God and His verses, will they believe?
45:7 Woe to every fabricating impostor! [26:222. This draws our attention to forged Ahadith]
45:8 (The impostor) who hears God’s verses conveyed to him, yet he is haughtily obstinate, as though he never heard them. So, announce to him grievous punishment.
45:9 For when he learns anything of Our verses, he belittles them. Theirs is a humiliating punishment in store.
45:10 Ahead of them is Hell, and what they have earned will not avail them, nor will the ‘awlia’ (saints, sufis, ‘imams’, clergy) whom they had chosen besides God. Theirs will be an awesome suffering. [29:24, 79:36, 82:16]
45:11 This is a beacon. And for those who reject the revelations of their Lord, is a painful retribution.
45:12 God is the One Who has made the sea of service to you that the ships may run thereon by His command, and that you may seek of His bounty, and that you may be grateful.
45:13 And He has made subservient to you, from Himself, all that is in the heavens and all that is on earth. Therein, are signs for people who reflect.
45:14 Tell those who have chosen to believe, to forgive the ones who do not hope for the Days of God. It is for Him alone to recompense each people for what they have earned. [Yaghfir, Ghafarah and derivatives = Forgive = Guarding against detriment = Protect from the harmful effects of misdeeds. Days of God = Life Hereafter = The Day of Resurrection, Judgment = When people establish the Divine Rule on earth. 14:5]
45:15 Whoever helps others, helps his own ‘self’. And whoever hurts others, hurts his own ‘self’. And in the end all of you will be brought back to your Lord. ['Amal-e-Saaleh = A good deed = Fulfilling others' needs = Increase human potential = Take corrective action = Help the individual or society = Doing collective good = Grow in goodness. 'Amal-e-Su = An evil deed = Disrupting someone’s life = Hurting others = Causing imbalance = Promoting injustice and inequity]
45:16 We gave to the Children of Israel the Scripture, the rule, and a succession of Prophets, and provided them with decent things and bestowed upon them bounties more than other nations of the time. [3:78, 6:90]
45:17 And We gave them a clear set of commandments. Yet, they fell for differences through rivalry among themselves after knowledge had come to them. Your Lord will judge between them on the Resurrection Day concerning all they differed.
45:18 And finally, We appointed you (O Messenger) to establish clear commandments about all matters. So you shall follow this way, and not follow the whims of those who do not know (the truth).
45:19 They cannot avail you in the least against God. The wrongdoers are friends to one another, while God is the protecting Friend of those who are observant in their journey of life.
45:20 The messages right before you are a means of vision and insight for mankind, and a guidance and a grace for people who wish to live by conviction rather than uncertainty.
45:21 What! Do those who disrupt others’ lives think that We will treat them, in life and death, like believers and helpers of humanity? Evil is the judgment they make!
45:22 God has created the heavens and earth with a definite purpose, and in order that every ‘self’ may be compensated for what it has earned. And no injustice will be done to them. [“There is a coherent plan in the Universe, though I don't know what it's a plan for.” - British astronomer, author, Sir Fred Hoyle]
45:23 Have you ever noted him who makes his desires his god? Consequently, God lets him go astray despite his knowledge, seals up his hearing and his heart, and places a veil on his sight. Then who will lead him after he has left God? Will you not then remember (this admonition)? [17:36, 32:9, 46:26]
45:24 And yet they say, "There is nothing beyond our life of this world. We die as we come to life (per chance) and nothing destroys us but Time." But of that they have no knowledge. They do nothing but make a wild guess.
45:25 And when Our revelations are conveyed to them in all clarity, their only argument is this, "Bring back our forefathers if you are truthful."
45:26 Say, "It is God Who gives you life, and then causes you to die. And He will gather all of you together on the Resurrection Day, the advent of which is beyond doubt.” But most people do not know [that the human ‘self’ survives physical death and that they be held accountable for all their deeds]
45:27 For, to God belongs the Dominion of the heavens and earth. And on the Day when the Hour stands – on that Day the followers of falsehood will be at loss.
45:28 And you will see every nation kneeling down, each nation called to its record. (And it will be said), “This Day you shall be paid for all that you ever did.”
45:29 “This Our record tells the truth about you. We arranged for all your doings to be meticulously recorded.
45:30 As for those who accepted the Message and helped the society, their Lord will admit them into His grace. That! That is the Obvious Triumph.
45:31 As for those who rejected the truth (they will be told), "Were not My messages conveyed to you? But you took an arrogant stance since you were an exploitative people.”
45:32 And when it was said, “God’s promise always comes true and there is no doubt about the Hour - you would reply, "We do not know what the Hour is. We think it could be conjecture, however, we are not certain!"
45:33 And their disruptive actions will become obvious to them and the very thing they used to mock will surround them.
45:34 And it will be said, "This Day We forget you, just as you forgot the meeting of this your Day. And your abode is the fire, and there is none to help you.
45:35 This is because you ridiculed God’s messages, having allowed the vanities of the life of this world to deceive you.” This Day, therefore, they will not be taken out of it, nor can they make amends.
45:36 Then, all praise is due to God, Lord of the heavens and Lord of the earth, Lord of all the worlds! [For, He has designed the Universe such that no action goes without a just recompense. 45:22]
45:37 And His alone is all Majesty in the Universe, and He alone is Almighty, Most
