Surrendering one’s purpose to Allah
Surah ‘Al-Baqarah (The Cow) – Chapter – 2)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
وَقَالُوا۟ لَن يَدْخُلَ ٱلْجَنَّةَ إِلَّا مَن كَانَ هُودًا أَوْ نَصَٰرَىٰ تِلْكَ أَمَانِيُّهُمْ قُلْ هَاتُوا۟ بُرْهَٰنَكُمْ إِن كُنتُمْ صَٰدِقِينَ (111
بَلَىٰ مَنْ أَسْلَمَ وَجْهَهُۥلِلَّهِ وَهُوَ مُحْسِنٌ فَلَهُۥٓ أَجْرُهُۥ عِندَ رَبِّهِۦ وَلَا خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ (112)
111. And they say: None entereth
112. Nay, but whosoever surrendereth his purpose to Allah while doing good, his reward is with his Lord; and there shall no fear come upon them neither shall they grieve.
111. Wa qaaluu lany-yad-khu-lal-jannata ’illaa man- kaana Huudan ‘aw Nasaaraa. Tilka ‘amaaniyyu-hum. Qul haatuu burhaanakum ‘in-kuntum saadiqiin.
112. Balaa man ‘aslama wajha-huu Lillaahi wa huwa muhsinun falahuuu ‘ajruhuu ‘inda Rabbih; wa laa khawfun ‘alayhim wa laa hum yahzanuun.
‘Amaaniyyu-hum: (their desires), it is plural of ‘Amniah which means desire.
wajha-huu: (his own face), literal meaning of wajhi is face or mouth, but often in the sentence, it aims body or an individual. Here it indicates towards these meanings.
The worst depravity of all the previous nations and ancient religious people is that they destroyed the truth; making separate groups between themselves, which in fact, was just one and was bestowed to all equally. Now, every group falsifies the other and just imagines itself only the heir of truth. The Children of Israel were involved in this depravity too and they thought that the truth is held only with them, only they will proceed to the Heaven. The Holy Qur’an commanded that these are their self made stories and false desires. They should produce if they have any proof.
Now Holy Qur’an has been revealed, so that, the entire groups may be gathered on this common truth. Piety is only in becoming sincere to Allah Almighty and doing good works. None of the groups can claim that she is true and other all are liars. God Almighty Commands that the individual, who will obey the Commands of Allah Almighty and will choose the path of goodness, he will succeed. Doing so, neither he will have any grief of his previous life, nor any fear of next happening. It is the sign of the Saints of God Almighty’s satisfaction (Servants of Allah Almighty).
