Surah ‘Al-Baqarah (The Cow) – Chapter – 2)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
64. Then, even after that, ye turned away, and if it had not been for the Grace of Allah upon you and His mercy ye had been among the losers.
64. Summa tawal-laytum-mim-ba’-di zaalik. Falaw- laa faz-lUllaahi ‘alaykum wa rahmatu-Huu la-kuntum-minal-khaasi-riin.
Khaasi-riin – (the losers), this word has been derived from the word Khasaara which means “the damage; the loss, the deficiency”. Therefore, khaasi-riin will be meant as the individuals who suffer loss, who ruin their existing lives as well as their end (the Day of Resurrection).

Allah Almighty saved them from the slavery of Pharaoh, and commanded them that they should live in the forests of the
, so that the
virtues and feelings of an independent and crusader nation may be produced into
them due to passing their lives in the desert and village atmosphere. They

They used to insist from the Prophet Moses (peace be upon Him) that He should bring for them a Guide Book, so that they might follow it. God Almighty bestowed for them Holy Book named Torah and got promise from them that they would follow it always and would never get ready for violence.
After the Revelation of Torah, they broke the faith and began to disobey the Commands of Torah. God Almighty forgave their error and mischief also. If there would not be His Mercy and Kindness on them then the Children of Israel might be ruined and disgraced at the spot in this world besides being entitled of the wrath on the Day of Resurrection.
God Almighty admonished the Children of Israel with His Kindness by sending His Prophets Solomon, David, Samuel and others (peace be upon Them), and showed them the straight path. Those Prophets (peace be upon Them) tried their best to bring them unto the straight path. It was Bounty of God Almighty, otherwise the Children of Israel had arranged for themselves to be ruined.
Biggest support for the life of human beings and their safety is Mercy and Kindness of God Almighty. If He does not keep His Mercy and Kindness, and does not ignore their errors then there is no room for any individual anywhere.
