Quran Chapter 2- 154 (Pt-2, Stg-1) (L-180) - درس قرآن

Never ending life for the Martyr

Surah ‘Al-Baqarah (The Cow) – Chapter – 2)

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim. 
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)


(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

 وَلَا تَقُولُوا۟ لِمَن يُقْتَلُ فِى سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ أَمْوَٰتٌۢ بَلْ أَحْيَآءٌ وَلَٰكِنلَّا تَشْعُرُونَ (154

154.  And call not those who are slain in the Way of Allah “dead”.  Nay, they are living, only ye perceive not.
154.  Wa  laa  taquuluu  li-many-yuqtalu fii sabii-Lillaahi ‘am-waat.  Bal  ‘ah-yaaa-‘unw-wa  laakil-laa  tash-‘uruun.


Fii sabii-Lillaah – (in the Way of Allah), it manifests that there is no particular path of Allah Almighty in the form of any road or highway. Moreover, the path of God Almighty means such way of life which He has fixed, for instance; to spend the wealth, to try and strive for the Cause of God Almighty etc.

Now; the recitation regarding circumstances and conditions begins where there is a need of steadfastness. Every such person will face these circumstances and conditions who is going on the straight path, justice and the truth, and inviting others for it, because distinguishing among good and bad without calamities, difficulties and troubles; is impossible. In the Holy Qur’an where the philosophy of fights and killing have been described at many places, there it has also been cleared that the war took place and the Muslims faced difficulties; only due to the reason that; the difference between Believer and Hypocrite may be cleared.

 Second reality is that the life of the nations is connected with the blood of the Martyrs as crops need water and heat of the sun, like this, the independence cannot be obtained till the time, the necks do not cut, blood of the Crusaders does not flow, people of the nation are not killed and every body of the nation is not ready to produce his head to be sacrificed.

When the honorable people of the nation begin to be slain, then into the nation, passion and tumult grows in the nation. Any other nation does not have courage to encounter it. This passion and tumult is the real life and the great artery of the nation. So God Almighty commands that the individuals, who will produce their lives in His path, people of their nation can never become slaves of enemies.

Cause of “the try and strive” (Jihad) is to be prepared to sacrifice oneself for the security of the future generation and coming breeds. It is clear that there is no act so much true and without affinity; which may be a collection of passions for the security of one’s breed and service of humanity. So, it was incumbent that its rewards would also be forever and remain always. It has been signified in this verse that while the just can never go to end then how it may be that the person, who sacrifices his life in His path, death may prevail over him, that is to say; he will die never. So the Martyr remains living always. However, we do not have the sense of his life due to our own misunderstanding.
