With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Surah 58 (Mujadila)
Hizbullah – the party of Allah
Verse 22: Thou wilt not find any people who believe in Allah and the Last Day, loving those who resist Allah and His Messenger, even though they were their fathers or their sons, or their brothers, or their kindred. For such He has written Faith in their hearts, and strengthened them with a spirit from Himself. And He will admit them to Gardens beneath which Rivers flow, to dwell therein (forever). Allah will be well pleased with them, and they with Him. They are the Party of Allah. Truly it is the Party of Allah that will achieve Felicity.
The end of this Sura speaks of two classes of people Hizb-ush-Shaytaan (Party of Shaytaan) in verse 19, a group who forgot the remembrance of Allah (Revelation) and the Hizbullah (Party of Allah) mentioned in the verse above. Being included within this group sets a very high requirement and was exemplified by the early Muslims. They endured physical torture, verbal abuse and estrangement from their families. It is indeed difficult especially when it comes to our closest relatives but the choice must be made. For such, Allah (SWT) assures them that He will strengthen them with a spirit (Ruh) from Himself, a very unique gift and they will be rewarded with Jannah.
