Sura Hashr (59) 13/10/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Surah 59 (Hashr)

The psychology of those who oppose the Truth

Verse 13-14: Of a truth ye are stronger (than they) because of the terror in their hearts, (sent) by Allah. This is because they are men devoid of understanding. They will not fight you (even) together, except in fortified townships, or from behind walls. Strong is their fighting (spirit) amongst themselves: thou wouldst think they were united, but their hearts are divided: that is because they are a people devoid of wisdom.

The true believers arouse fear in the hearts of those who fight them. This fear is more intense than their fear of Allah. They do not understand that the strength of the believers is derived from their commitment to the Divine Laws.

Even if they formed a coalition they would not be able to fight the believers. Their fighting spirit appears to be strong among themselves but they will only engage the believers in battle from secure positions. They appear to be united but this is just an illusion. This is because they do not apply their reason.
