Surah Hajj (22) 15/11/2015


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Sura 22 (Hajj)

Verse 12 :They call on such deities, besides Allah, as can neither hurt nor profit them: that is straying far indeed (from the Way)!

Verse 13 :(Perhaps) they call on one whose hurt is nearer than his profit: evil, indeed, is the patron, and evil the companion (or help)!

Cross references

10:18 :They serve, besides Allah, things that hurt them not nor profit them, and they say: “These are our intercessors with Allah.” Say: “Do ye indeed inform Allah of something He knows not, in the heavens or on earth?- Glory to Him! and far is He above the partners they ascribe (to Him)!”

17:57: Those whom they call upon do desire (for themselves) means of access to their Lord, – even those who are nearest: they hope for His Mercy and fear His Wrath: for the Wrath of thy Lord is something to take heed of.

The above verses are very clear – Allah SWT is accessible to each and everyone of us.We have this erroneous mentality that you need a contact to get closer to Allah SWT.

2:186 :When My servants ask thee concerning Me, I am indeed close (to them): I listen to the prayer of every suppliant when he calleth on Me: Let them also, with a will, Listen to My call, and believe in Me: That they may walk in the right way.

Continues tomorrow…InshaAllah

Salaam / Peace.
