Two basic Principles
Surah ‘Al-Baqarah (The Cow) – Chapter – 2)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
وَأَقِيمُوا۟ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَءَاتُوا۟ ٱلزَّكَوٰةَوَمَا تُقَدِّمُوا۟ لِأَنفُسِكُم مِّنْ خَيْرٍ تَجِدُوهُ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ بَصِيرٌ (110)
110. And establish worship, and pay the poor-due. And whatever of good ye send before (you) for your souls, ye will find it with Allah. Lo! Allah is Seer of what ye do.
110. Wa ‘aqiimus-Salaata wa ‘aatuz-Zakaah. Wa maa tuqad-dimuu li-‘anfusikum-min khay-rin- taji-duuhu ‘indAllaah. ‘In-nAllaaha bimaa ta’-maluuna Basiir.
As we discussed earlier that the main cause of accepting not the religion Islam by the Children of Israel was their envy. They were burning that why the prophet-hood has been bestowed to the Children of Ishmael, snatching from the Children of Israel. They were refusing to admit the Just, only due to the fire of envy and jealousy.
They wanted also to include the Muslims with their disbeliever companions after giving up their religion Islam. So they used to try for raising different types of suspicious ideas in their hearts. They used to criticize the religion Islam and the personality of the Last Prophet Muhammad (glory, grace, peace and blessings be upon Him). They imagined that if the Muslims will not give up their religion then at the very least, they will become suspicious certainly from their religion side. So thence the religion Islam will become weak.
Allah Almighty commanded the Muslims that they should resist their attack and finish the attempt of the Children of Israel that they must not attend to them. Moreover, they should wait for the proclamation of the last command of God Almighty “Jihad fii SabiiLillaah” and during this period, keep up following two basic principles.
(1) Establish the prayer.
(2) Pay the poor-due.
These two principles are like two main pillars of Islam, due to which, the power of the both (individual as well as the nation) increases and that cannot be rebelled from the religion.
Besides other unlimited advantages, organization of the nation becomes powerful due to establishing the prayer. Relationship among the people themselves becomes profound. And they remain united for one another. The wealth is divided with the poor-due. The poor becomes rich and they cannot be changed due to greed and cause of their financial weakness.
It has also been described that if you will continue this good act then you will get reward from your Lord Almighty because He witnesses your every act. Even, a little try of any person, does not become fruitless.
So, to escape ourselves from the conspiracies and attacks of the enemies, we should hold fast these two principles.
