Sura Hashr (59) 15/10/2016


With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Surah 59 (Hashr)

Being cognizant of the hereafter

Verse 18-19: “O ye who believe! Fear Allah, and let every soul look to what he has sent forth for the morrow. Yea, fear Allah: for Allah is well acquainted with (all) that ye do. And be ye not like those who forgot Allah; and He made them forget their own souls! Such are the rebellious transgressors!”

After informing us of the ultimate fate of the rejecters and hypocrites who succumb to the temptations of shaytaan, Allah swt counsels the believers to do two things, the first is having taqwa (God consciousness) and the second is taking cognizance of our actions and how they impact on our status and position in the hereafter. God conciousnes is effectively our awareness of our responsibility to Allah swt and hence our actions should conform to what He has ordained for us. Our actions should also have a sense of awareness that Allah knows all and how these will be judged by Him on the day of Judgement.
