وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَا مِن قَبْلِكَ مِن رَّسُولٍ وَلَا نَبِيٍّ إِلَّا إِذَا تَمَنَّىٰ أَلْقَى الشَّيْطَانُ فِي أُمْنِيَّتِهِ فَيَنسَخُ اللَّهُ مَا يُلْقِي الشَّيْطَانُ ثُمَّ يُحْكِمُ اللَّهُ آيَاتِهِ ۗ وَاللَّهُ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيمٌ
And We did not send before you any messenger or prophet except that when he spoke [or recited], Satan threw into it [some misunderstanding]. But Allah abolishes that which Satan throws in; then Allah makes precise His verses. And Allah is Knowing and Wise.
Never did We send a Messenger or a Prophet before you, but; when he did recite the revelation or narrated or spoke, Shaitan (Satan) threw (some falsehood) in it. But Allah abolishes that which Shaitan (Satan) throws in. Then Allah establishes His Revelations. And Allah is All-Knower, All-Wise:
আমি আপনার পূর্বে যে সমস্ত রাসূল ও নবী প্রেরণ করেছি, তারা যখনই কিছু কল্পনা করেছে, তখনই শয়তান তাদের কল্পনায় কিছু মিশ্রণ করে দিয়েছে। অতঃপর আল্লাহ দূর করে দেন শয়তান যা মিশ্রণ করে। এরপর আল্লাহ তাঁর আয়াতসমূহকে সু-প্রতিষ্ঠিত করেন এবং আল্লাহ জ্ঞানময়, প্রজ্ঞাময়।
My Critical Reasoning:
What type of Ayah is this?
the power of shaitan (that Allah allowed him)
and vulnerability of Allah’s messengers tackling shaitan
Why Allah inform us this?
Anything and everything in the Quran should benefit us.
How this Ayah could benefit us?
My understanding and Comments:
Know the POWER of shaitan and then know your Ulema that you follow blindly. If shaitan could through his falsehood in the words of messengers then what about your Ulema! Allah was there to correct His messengers straight away, but what about your Ulema?
The scariest and most eye-opening Ayah for me! This Ayah is enough to get every Muslim on their toes! How you then rest your jannah by blindly following your Ulema even who gives evidence from Quran and Hadith? Isn’t every Ulema of every sect following the same Quran and many times the same Hadith? And then aren’t every Ulema study their Deen for 10/20/30/40 years! Then where would you go? How do you know, even they teach you of 99 things correct but just one thing could lead you to Jahannam as a slightest element of Shirk is enough for Jahannam and isn’t that the case today!
So, what’s your way out?
Read and contemplate and ask guidance and plead to Allah, the Most Merciful to have Rahma on you! shaitan is there to take sons of Adam to Jahannam
But you need to show Allah, the Most Just, that you tried hard! Don’t think you continue your fun and thinking “Allah is forgiving”
So you better stay away from wasting time and getting busy in making money for this and that! You better get rid of the mindset that “Scholars study whole life so they must be correct” or “If a scholar can make mistake what is my chance?” or “I am listening to the scholars always”
No, my brother, You need to have a study method, an organized method! A study from facebook and youtube won’t be able to save you! You need to study from original books contentiously to understand right from wrong! And then think yourself and then only you can listen to lectures.
But on top of that, you need to continuously be aware of your situation that how vulnerable you are against shaitan and make pleading to Allah, the Most Merciful to have Rahma on you! But show Allah, the all Watching, that you are constantly tried hard for His cause!
And Allah knows best. May Allah, the Most Merciful, save us from shaitan and save us from Jahannam! Ameen.
