Quran Chapter 2-95 & 96 (Pt-1, Stg-1) (L-124) - درس قرآن
Long for long life
Surah ‘Al-Baqarah (The Cow) – Chapter – 2)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
95. But they will never long for it, because of that which their own hands have sent before them. And Allah is Aware of evildoers.
96. And thou wilt find them greediest of mankind for life and (greedier) than the idolaters. (Each) one of them would like to be allowed to live a thousand years. And to live (a thousand years) would by no means remove him from the doom. And Allah is Seer of what they do.
95. Wa lany-yata-mannaw-hu ‘abadam- bimaa qaddamat ‘aydiihim. Wallaahu ‘Aliimum-biz-zaalimiin.
96. Wa la-tajidan-nahum ‘ah-rasan-naasi ‘alaa hayaah. Wa minal-laziina ‘ashrakuu yawad-du ‘ahaduhum law yu-‘ammaru ‘alfa sanah. Wa maa huwa bi-muzah-zihihii minal-‘azaabi ‘any-yu-‘ammar. Wallaahu Basiirum- bimaa ya’-maluun.
In these verses, Allah Almighty has explained about the reality of the Children of Israel. It means that as they claim that they are the only Heirs of the
Paradise, so they are being
commanded to show the long for death. But they will never be prepared to accept
it. They don’t want to intend to leave the luxuries of this world entirely and
to face the world Hereafter. There is only one reason for it that they haven’t
faith in the purity of their claim. They just tell a lie. They know very well
about the evil doings and immoralities, which they have committed
in this world, they shall have to face the punishment for their sins. So
they wish that they should get the life as long as possible, so that they may
enjoy luxuries of this world for maximum period and be saved from the torment
of the Doomsday.
Everybody out of them desires to remain in this world for thousands of the years, so that he may get more worldly benefits and be saved from punishment. But God Almighty warns them that whether they get more life, they can’t save themselves from the wrath of Allah Almighty because He knows their every deed.
