The Poets

Qur’aanic Verse 26:227:

26:227

Transliteration:

227. Illa allatheena amanoo waAAamiloo alssalihati wathakaroo Allaha katheeran waintasaroo min baAAdi ma thulimoo wasayaAAlamu allatheena thalamoo ayya munqalabin yanqaliboona

Translation:

227. Save those who believe, do righteous deeds, and remember Allah much. And they defend themselves after having been wronged. 11 And those who do wrong will soon come to know how evil a turn they will turn to!

Study Note:

11. The Qur’aan generally describes the poets, in the preceding two Verses, as those who use their poetic skills in eulogizing human passions, but do not do what they say. Here, in this Verse, it describes the exceptional cases. Muhammad Iqbal, the great poet of Islam, is, no doubt mashaAllah, one of those exceptions.


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