Divine Mantra for Satisfaction in Life

Qur’aanic Verses 20.123 & 20.124:




123. Qala ihbita minha jameeAAan baAAdukum libaAAdin AAaduwwun fa-imma ya/tiyannakum minnee hudan famani ittabaAAa hudaya fala yadillu wala yashqa

124. Waman aAArada AAan thikree fa-inna lahu maAAeeshatan dankan wanahshuruhu yawma alqiyamati aAAman


123. Allah said, “Down you both (Adam & Satan) go, together, in reciprocal enmity. And whenever Guidance comes to you from Me, then all those who follow My Guidance shall not go astray or be miserable.”

124. “And he who turns away from My Reminder shall lead a hard life.28 and We will raise him on the day of Resurrection, blind.” 

Study Note:

28. Life of a person who fails to abide by the divine instructions given in the Qur’aan would be straitened, miserable, ignominious, humiliating, or otherwise unsatisfactory. He/she is bound to have a distressing feeling of unfulfilment, guilt and failure at the end of it. And it is a sad reflection on Muslims – on an overwhelming majority of them at the least – that they have woefully taken no heed of this divine mantra, enunciated in these two Verses 123 and 124, for leading a good, satisfactory life in this world.


The above is an extract from Qur’aanic Studies Manzil IV, which will soon, inshaAllah, be published on Amazon Kindle. Manzil IMabzil II & Manzil III of the series are already published.
