"AL-Eti'daal" Weekly Article-Issue 19
15 Jamadul Ukhra 1434/ 27 April 2013

11. “If any do wish for the transitory things of this world We readily grant them, such things as We will to such persons as We will. In the end have We provided for them Hell. They will burn therein dejected and rejected. Those who do wish for the things of the Hereafter, and strive therefore with all due striving and have faith, they are the ones whose striving is acceptable to Allah. Of the bounties of thy Lord We bestow freely on all these as well as those. The bounties of Thy Lord are not closed (to anyone).” (17.18-19)

An attempt is accepted on three conditions:
a. Intention
b. Pious action
c. Belief

12. “Nor strain your eyes in longing for the things We have given for enjoyment to the parties of them, the splendour of the life of this world, through which We test them. But the provisions of Thy Lord is better and more enduring.” (20. 131)

13. “Are these two alike —one to whom We have made a goodly promise, and who is going to reach its fulfilment. And one to whom We have given the good things of this life, but who, on the Day of Judgement, is to be among those brought up for punishment?” (28. 61)

14. “Said those whose aim is the life of this world: “Oh that we had the like of what Quran has got for he is truly a Lord of mighty good fortune. But those who had been granted true knowledge said: “Alas for you! The word of Allah (in the Hereafter) is best for those who believe and work righteousness: But this none
shall attain, save those who steadfastly persevere.”

15. “That home of the Hereafter We shall give to those who intend not high handedness or mischief on earth. And the best end is for the righteous ones.” (28.83)

16 “Verily the promise of Allah is true: let not then the present life deceive you, nor let the chief deceiver deceive you about Allah.” (31.33)

17. “To any that desires the crops of the Hereafter We give increase in his tilth; and to any that desires the tilth of this world, We grant somewhat thereof, but he has no share or lot in the Hereafter.” (42.20)

All these verses as well as others from the Holy Qur'an have this collective theme that for the non-believers the ultimate goal is the acquisition of the life and enjoyment of this world. For them only the benefits of this world are considered benefits. They have no faith in the Hereafter.

If some denominations or sects do accept the Hereafter, then because of not fulfilling the conditions for proper Imaan, it is not acceptable at all. Hence whatever they receive from Allah is given to them here. Whatever good works they perform are rewarded in this world.

Al-Etidaal Fe Maraatibur-Rijaal” by Sheikh-ul-Hadith, Hazrat Maulana Muhammad Zakariya Kandhalwi R.A, Page 105-107 - Published by Darul Uloom Zakariyya.) To be continued Insha-Allah.


When it was asked who is more superior, Muawiyah [Radhiallahu Anhu] or Umar bin Abdul Aziz (RA), the reply given was: "If the dust that settled on the horse of Muawiyah [Radhiallahu Anhu] that fought during the battles side by side with Nabi (S.A.W.) is more superior, then what can be said about Muawiyah [Radhiallahu Anhu] himself."
