With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Sura 39 (Zumar-Crowds)
Be an open supporter of the Quran
Verses 33-35: “And he who brings the Truth and he who confirms (and supports) it – such are the men who do right. They shall have all that they wish for, in the presence of their Lord: such is the reward of those who do good: So that Allah will turn off from them (even) the worst in their deeds and give them their reward according to the best of what they have done.”
Although we do not have the privilege of being among the select few chosen by Allah (SWT) to be Prophets, we could be in such great company on condition that we provide our firm and unwavering support for it. The reward is magnificent – only the good will be weighed! In history we learn of Khatija, Abu Bakr and Ali as being of those early open supporters. However this requirement is for all time and we too have the same duty of supporting and promoting the message. The opposite is highlighted in Sura 25 Verse 30: “Then the Messenger will say: “O my Lord! Truly my people deserted this Qur’an”. This is the complaint of the Prophet (SAW) about those who did not just fail to support but rather deserted the Quran. We have a duty to honour the Prophet (SAW) by being among those who are open proponents of the last message.
