Is there besides Allah another god who is His associate in these works? Nay, but most of these people have no knowledge. How little you reflect!
Umera Ahmad - Wikipedia
Far exalted is Allah above what they associate with Him. This news has been given to us as well as to our forefathers before us, but these are nothing but tales, which we have been hearing since the ancient times.
You cannot make the dead to hear you, 97 nor can convey your call to the deaf, who have turned their backs and are running away from you, 98 nor can guide the blind against their errors. Did they not perceive that We had ordained the night for them to have rest in it, and made the day bright?
Today, you see the mountains and think that they are firmly set, but on that Day they will be flying about like the clouds; this will be a manifestation of the powers of Allah, Who has ordered everything with wisdom.
He is fully aware of what you do. Can you be rewarded except in accordance with your deeds? The verses of the Qur'an will show the right way of life only to those people who fulfill these two conditions; they will explain to them the difference between the right and the wrong at every stage on the way, protect them against the wrong ways at every turn of the way, and bless them with the satisfaction that whatever be the consequences of following the Right Way in the world, in the Hereafter they will certainly attain the eternal and everlasting success and the good will of Allah only through it.
Namal – An Overview
For in order to derive full benefit from the teaching of a teacher, one has first to have faith in him, then accept to be his student, and then work according to his instructions.
Similarly, a patient who wants to be benefited by a doctor has first to accept him as a physician, and then follow his instructions with regard to medical dosage, prevention, etc. Then only he can assure the patient of the desired results.
Some people have interpreted the words yu'tun-az-zakat in this verse to mean that they should adopt moral purity. But, wherever in the Qur'an the word ita-i-zakat has occurred along with the word iqamat-i-salat, it means payment of the Zakat, which is the second pillar of Islam after the Salat. Moreover, the Qur'an has used the word tazakka for adopting piety and purity and not ita' which is specifically used for the payment of the Zakat. In fact, what is meant to be impressed here is this: In order to benefit fully by the guidance of the Qur'an, it is imperative that one should adopt the attitude of submission and obedience in practical life as well after the affirmation of the Faith, and the establishment of the Salat and the payment of the Zakat is the first indication that one has actually adopted such an attitude.
If there is no such indication, it will become obvious that one is rebellious: The object is to impress that for those people who do not believe in the Hereafter, it is impossible to follow, even tread, the way taught by the Qur'an.
For the people of this way of thinking naturally determine their criterion of good and evil by the results that appear, in this world. For them it is not possible to accept any admonition or guidance which seeks to determine the good and evil by the criterion of the gain and loss in the Hereafter.
Such people in the first instance do not at all heed the teachings of the Prophets, but if for some reason, they also get included among the believers, they find it difficult to take even the initial steps on the way of the Faith and Islam because of the lack of faith in the Hereafter. For as soon as they will encounter the first situation where the demands of the worldly gains and the losses of the Hereafter will pull them in opposite directions, they will freely allow themselves to be pulled towards the worldly gains without caring in the least for the losses of the Hereafter, even though they may be making all sons of claims to be the believers.
Then, whatever earns him pleasure and enjoyment, material progress and prosperity, power and authority, will be the good for him, no matter it be any philosophy of life, any way of life and any system of morality. He will have no concern for truth and reality. His real ambition will be to win successes and earn adornments only of this worldly life, and their pursuit will lead him astray into every valley.
Then, whatever he does with this object in view. Sinai and Jabal Musa in the southern part of the Peninsula, which at the time of the revelation of the Qur'an was well known as Tur.
See also The Meaning of Qur'an, Vol. The details of this story have already been given in Surah Ta Ha: Therefore, he said to his family, "Let me go and find out what habitation it is where a fire is alight, and get some information about the traveling routes and the nearby habitations. I shall at least bring a few embers for you to light a fire and warm yourselves.
Two hundred years later Emperor Justinian had a monastery built which included the church built by Constantine as well. Both the monastery and the church stand even today and are under the control of the monks of the Greek Orthodox Church. What one understands from this is this: A sort of a fire was alight on the ground on the edge of the valley, but neither was anything burning nor any smoke arising.
In the midst of the fire there stood a lush green tree from which a voice started calling out this all of a sudden.
- Namal A Story Of Ants Ever After!
- Umera Ahmad
This is a strange thing which the Prophets of Allah have been experiencing. When the Holy Prophet Muhammad may Allah's peace be upon him was first blessed with Prophethood, an Angel appeared before him in the solitude of the Gave of Hira' and started delivering Allah's Message. A similar thing happened with the Prophet Moses also. A journeying person has halted at a place, sees a fire at a distance, approaches it in order to get some information abort the route, or to pick a burning ember, and suddenly Allah, Lord of the Worlds, the Infinite, the Inconceivable Being, starts speaking to him.
On such occasions, there exists externally as well as within the Prophets' own selves an extraordinary state which fills them with the assurance that it is not a jinn or a satan or an illusion of their own mind, nor are their senses being deceived, but it is the Lord of the universe, or His Angel, who is speaking to them.
For further explanation, see E.
The reason is that in physical size it was a serpent but in movement it was swift like a small snake. When I call someone into My Presence to appoint him to the high office of Prophethood, I Myself become responsible for his safety. Therefore, the Messenger should remain fearless and confident in every kind of unusual situation: In the first case it will imply that there can be a genuine cause of fear if the Messenger has committed an offense; in the second case it will mean: The Prophet Moses had killed a Copt inadvertently and fled from Egypt.
This was an offense to which a subtle reference was made. When this offense was committed un-intentionally by the Prophet Moses, he had immediately offered repentance to Allah, saying, "O my Lord!Namal by Nemrah Ahmed part 90
I have sinned against myself, so forgive me. Here the good news of the same forgiveness has been given him, as if to say, "O Moses, there could be a genuine cause for you to feel afraid in My Presence, because you had committed an offense, but when you have changed the evil into good, I have nothing but forgiveness and mercy for you.
I have not called you here at this time to punish you, but I am going to send you on a great mission with wonderful miracles. Far explanation, see E. The Bible also has mentioned it Exodus. The miracles were so manifest that even a stupid person could not help realizing that the occurrence of the plagues on such a large scale and their removal at the Prophet's prayer could be only due to Allah, Lord of all Creation's power and authority.
That is why the Prophet Moses had told Pharaoh plainly: But the reason why Pharaoh and his chiefs rejected Moses knowingly was: This knowledge is the opposite of the ignorance in which Pharaoh was involved. The type of character built on the ignorance has been presented in the preceding verses. Now, in the following verses, the model of the character built on the knowledge is being presented.
The sort of kingdom, wealth, power and grandeur were common on both the sides.
The Pharaoh had been given these as well as the Prophets David and Solomon. But the distinction of the ignorance and the knowledge built and molded them into entirely different personalities. But it is only Allah's favor, not due to any special quality in ourselves, that He has chosen us to be rulers over this kingdom. For the wealth and possessions, if at all transferred, could not be transferred to the Prophet Solomon only, because Prophet David had other children also.
Therefore, this verse cannot be cited to refute the Hadith reported from the Holy Prophet, saying, "The inheritance left by us, the Prophets, is not divided as such.
Whatever he leaves behind, is divided among the needy and the indigent of the Muslims. Traditions from Abu Bakr, Ahadith No. The Prophet Solomon was the youngest son of the Prophet David. His Hebrew name Solomon is a synonym of Salim right-minded, affable. He succeeded the Prophet David in B. For other details of his life and works, see E.
Our commentators have greatly exaggerated' the vastness of his kingdom, and have held that he ruled over a large part of the world. II, Bani Israel E. This was not said proudly by Prophet Solomon but only to express his gratitude to Allah for His grace and bounty and favors. Some of the present-day writers have strained every nerve to prove that the words jinn and fair do not refer to the jinns and birds but to men who performed different duties in the Prophet Solomon's army.
They say that the Jinn haply the people of the mountain tribes whom Prophet Solomon had subdued and who performed teats of great strength and skill under him; and fair implies cavalry which could move much faster than the infantry.
But these are indeed the worst examples of misinterpreting the Qur'an. The Qur'an here mentions three distinct kinds of the army consisting of the men, the jinns and the birds, and all the three gave been qualified by the prefix a1 alif-lam to denote a class. Therefore, al jinn and al-tair could not be included in al-ins the menbut could be two separate and different classes from the men.
Calling a man a jinn only figuratively because of some supernatural feat of his, or a woman a fairy because of her beauty, or a fast moving person a bird dces not mean that the words Jinn and fairy and bird will henceforth be taken to mean a powerful man and a beautiful woman and a fast moving person respectively.
These are only the metaphoric and not the real meanings of these words. In a discourse, a word is used in its figurative instead of its real meaning, and the listeners also will take it in that meaning, only when there exists in the context a clear pointer to its being figurative.
What, after all, is the pointer in the context here from which one may understand that the words jinn and tair have been used not in their real and lexical meaning but in their figurative meaning? Contrary to this, the work and the state of a member each of the two groups that have been mentioned in the following verses, fall entirely against the purport of this interpretation.
If a person does not want to believe in something stated in the Qur'an, he should frankly say that he does not believe in it. But it would be moral cowardice and intellectual dishonesty if one should force the clear words of the Qur'an to give the meaning that he wants them to give, and tell the world that he believes in what the Qur'an says, whereas he does not, in fact, believe in it but believes in his own distorted meaning.
They say that wad-in naml does not mean "valley of the ants", but it is the name of a valley that was in Syria, and namlah does not mean an ant but it is the name of a tribe. Thus, according to them, the verse means this: Even if we took wad-in-naml to be the name of a valley and supposed that it was inhabited by the tribe of Bani an-Naml, it would be against the Arabic idiom and usage to speak of a member of the tribe as namlah. Although there are many Arab tribes which have been named after the animals, e.
Kalb dogAsad lionetc". Therefore, it would be against the Arabic idiom to say in respect of a member of the Naml tribe: If the army has come with the intention of an attack, it would be useless for the other side to get into their houses, for in that case the invaders would follow them into their houses, and trample them more ruthlessly.
And if the army is only on the routine march, it is just enough to clear off the way for it. Human beings may be harmed by the marching columns, but it can never happen that the soldiers on the march would trample down other men without knowing it. Therefore, if Bani an-Naml were a tribe of human beings, and one of its members were to warn his people, then in case of an attack, he would have said, "O Namilites, flee your houses and take refuge in the mountains lest Solomon's armies should destroy you.
As for the name of the valley and the tribe of Bani an-Naml inhabiting it, it is a mere hypothesis for which there exists no scientific proof. Those who hold that wad-in -naml was the name of a valley have themselves pointed out that it had been so named because of the abundance of ants in it.
Qatadah and Muqatil say, "It is a valley in the land of Syria where ants are found in abundance. But in no book of history and geography and in no archaeological research it is mentioned that it was inhabited by a tribe called Bani an-Naml. Thus, it is merely a concoction that has been invented to support one's own interpretation.
Namal Episode 30 Review (Final Episode)
This story is also found in the Israelite traditions but its latter portion falls against the Qur'an as well as against the regal dignity of the Prophet Solomon.
According to it, when the Prophet Solomon was passing through a valley which abounded in ants, he heard an ant calling out to the other ants to say, "Get into your holes, otherwise you will be trampled down by Solomon's hosts. Let me remind you the hallmarks of a good storytelling.
Premise, backdrop, characterisation, dialogues and narrative. I guess, no one can deny the significance of all these components for the success of a story.
Lets glance at the characters that made the world of Namal, a Disneyland of its own sort for the readers. You may agree or not but we have not seen any villain in the history of Urdu digest series as ruthless, as barbarous and at the same time as authoritative and as debonair, as Hashim Kardaar which I continued to call as The desi version of Hannibal Lecters. You hate him for his deeds but many of us love the way Nemrah projected this cold-blooded barbaric style icon. There was one thing that he always cherished Hashim sab theek ker sakta tha Faris Ghazi The man of crisiswho can break all the barriers, to beat the hell out of whatever comes in his way, in order to save his family.
This one man army has done every vital thing in every possible unethical manner, but again, just like one of the wrestler in WWE used to say, It wasn't my fault.
It was never his fault what-so-ever. Waqt karta hai parwarish barson Haadsa aik dum nahi hota And same happened with Saadi. Fate made him get changed and Nemrah showed us two entirely opposite sides of Saadi from being extremely kindhearted to being severely dangerous.
His coming-of-age was brilliantly told by Nemrah Ahmed in the whole series. She was a very powerful female character. Not only as a successful Lawyer District Attorney but also back at the home. She was hurt and she was revenge, written all over her mind. She was Zumer and she was the one many of us prayed to live really long. Oh that sweethearted K-culture addict, evil genius minded young kid who fall in love with not an eligible person.
She was Hunain Hanna who discovered that it is not really bad to love someone odd, but worse scenario arises when you loose control over yourself. So along with the help of book saint's teachings, she re-discovered herself right before getting caught in the web. Yet another authoritative character was the self-proclaimed queen of heavy is the head that wears his crown, who actually was a self-obsessed witch read Penny Dreadful's Evelyn.
She knew only one thing. Do everything what it takes in order to sustain the power, youth and wealth in your hands. She was the one who wanted to rule and rule forever. He was a sheer genius and had all the guts to do whatever the master commands. I would love to call him a freelance task initiator. He has done certain real unanticipated things during the course of actions just to get the work done.
No doubt, he was the reason of many smiles that came to our faces while reading this immensely serious thriller. Actually she was not a bigger victim of an NDE than she was of the most cherished relationship of the planet i.
Cupid made her do things that were never meant to be done by her.
Let me summarise her situation, She loved Zumer's Faris and as a matter of the fact, she was loved by Hashim. Handle the equation your own self now Ha ha ha Last but not the least, we witnessed a disgruntled, Stubborn, objective-less, wealthy dug-addict spoiled brat Nosherwaan Kardaar Sheru.
The younger Kardaar who shared the same ugly traits that other Kardaars possessed. Apart from these, there were many other characters that were pertinent in the heart of the story and considering the fact that Namal lasts for 30 episodes we can give Nemrah the leverage of playing with this mega profusion of characters.
She has once again used many interesting true anecdotes from QURAN PAK in the novel and these stories not only helped the reader to get the real essence of the lessons but also assisted to move the story of the novel ahead.
