Surah Hajj (22) 14/11/2015


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Sura 22 (Hajj)

Sitting on the fence

Verse 11  “There are some who worship God half-heartedly, then, if some good befalls them, they are content with it, but if an ordeal befalls them, they revert to their former ways. They lose in this world as well in the Hereafter. That is a clear loss.”

There are people who are committed to Allah if it suits their own selfish interests. They are only happy when good things happen to them. If Allah tests them with some trial or hardship, they return to their old ideologies and lifestyles and show no commitment to Allah. Allah says that having this attitude makes them lose everything.  Believers are advised to remain committed to Allah and resilient despite difficulties.

Cross reference 2:156 “ Be sure we shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives or the fruits (of your toil), but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere”
