The Last & Final Commandments Lesson 1 درس قرآن

The Last & Final Commandments Lesson 1 درس قرآن 

أَعُوذُ بِاللهِ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ I seek refuge in God from Satan   the outcast.
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَـنِ الرَّحِيمِ   In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

Ta-‘awwuz (Seeking Refuge)

First of all, one should perform Ablution, before touching the Holy Qur-‘aan.

I seek refuge in God from Satan   the outcast.
‘A-‘uuzu   BIllaahi minash-Shaytaanir-Rajiim.
Out of the creatures of God Almighty, there is such a creature also, which is called Satan (the Devil). He has been created from the fire. When a competition took place between Angels and Adam (peace be upon them), and Adam (peace be upon Him) won the Test, God Almighty commanded the Angels that they all should bow before Adam (peace be upon Him). Therefore, they all fell prostrate in front of Adam (peace be upon Him). But Satan denied from bowing, because he had disease of pride in his heart. When he was called to account, he said, “I have been created from the fire and Adam (peace be upon Him) from the Clay. So, I am better than He. How the fire can bow before the dust?” Hence, due to his pride the Satan was determined as outcast forever and till the Day of Resurrection; he was fixed as a cursed.
Then, Satan decided to take revenge of his disgrace. Anyhow he caused to put Adam (peace be upon Him) and his wife, Eve, out of the Heaven and announced: I shall try my best to misguide the children of Adam (peace be upon Him) from the Right Path until the Day of Judgment. It means that Satan is our mortal enemy for ever. So, God Almighty commanded to us that we should supplicate in His Court as mentioned above that: O my Lord! I seek refuge in Thee from devilish temptations and O my Lord! I seek Your refuge from it that Satan; the outcast should never come close to me.

 The Last Messenger Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) commanded that Satan influences in your veins and fibers like the blood circulates in your entire bodies. Satan looks the people but the people; neither can look him and nor they can save themselves from his attack easily. Therefore, every individual must seek refuge from the effects of Satan.
It is included in the etiquette of the recitation of Holy Qur’-aan that before starting recitation, one should recite first of all, “’A-‘uuzu  Billaahi  minash-shaytaanir-Rajiim
(I seek refuge in ALLAH from Satan the outcast). So that, Most High God take us in His refuge and Satan may not get opportunity to mislead and allure us in this Good act. Essence of the meanings of Verses may change with wrong interpretation. Our Lord! Save us from every kind of depravity.
