Tarjumatul Quran - Surahs al-Fat'ha [The Triumph]: 19 - al-Hujrat [The Inner Chambers]: 4
In verse Number 19 it states فَأَنزَلَ ٱلسَّكِينَةَ عَلَيْهِمْ ['so He sent down the Shekinah on them'] whereas in verse Number 5 of this same Surah it states هُوَ ٱلَّذِىٓ أَنزَلَ ٱلسَّكِينَةَ فِى قُلُوبِ ٱلْمُؤْمِنِين ['He it is Who sent down Shekinah into the hearts of the believers...']. In both places the Holy Prophet ﷺ is not mentioned. This is because he had no trouble anyway. The trouble that the faithful faced was also for the sake of the Holy Prophet ﷺ. So the Shekinah that descended was because of what was in the hearts of the faithful and أَثَبَهُمْ فَتْحًۭا قَرِيبًۭا and joined with it ['He rewarded them with a victory near at hand'] as proof of the Shekinah and many spoils of war were granted. Verse 20: It can be asked about the وَمَغَانِمَ ['spoils of war'] that the Bayat [oath of allegiance'] took place under the tree so what has that to do with the spoils of war? The grief at the time of the Bayat was that Mecca was unconquered and they were also deprived of the booty but the triumphs at hand also granted them a large booty along with the victory. In addition to this when an abundance of the spoils of war were promised it also promised victories alongside so that they were absolutely certain about victory and moreover in verse Number 22 it is that 'You would receive some further victories which Allah has compassed. This means the continuation of victories in Islam. In verse Number 26 it is said that Allah the Almighty prevented the Holy Prophet ﷺ from entering Mecca at that time because many people there had hidden their faith and they would have been crushed as a result of their lack of knowledge. The punishment was also sent to the disbelievers of Mecca because of these same hidden believers. Verse 27: The disbelievers of Mecca made a foolish show of proud indignation during the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah whereas the faithful were blessed as a result of their holding to the creed of God-awareness. Certain Shi'ites allege that they deviated from God-awareness although Almighty God testifies to their God-consciousness. Another thing worth remembering is that in the vision seen by the Holy Prophet ﷺ the entry into Mecca was in a state of peace. Had they entered Mecca in such a state of dispute his vision would have proved false (God forbid). In verse Number 30 the scene of the noble character of the Holy Prophet ﷺ and his companions is captured in the faithful being very harsh to the disbelievers on account of their false beliefs and very tender-hearted towards each other. So Allah the Almighty expects from a Society of the faithful that they harbour no external influence. Also this superiority is granted to them because you would see them standing and bowing [in worship] which is proof of their trust in God. Their faces reflect the inner peace of their hearts and their description in the Torah is that he would come in glory with 10000 saints. The word saints reveals that whoever would be with the Holy Prophet ﷺ would be holy and a description is also in the Gospel that differs from the description of the Torah. The Promised Messiah (peace be on him) has spoken in detail that in this example we are the ones who are declared to be with the Messenger of Allah ﷺ. Now with the grace of God the situation of the Ahmadiyya Community is like that of a strong tree. Those days are gone when there was a possibility of being crushed. The enemy was apparently was able to wipe it out but nothing could they do. ٱلزُّرَّاعَ ['sowers'] is in the plural that cannot apply to Almighty God. Those (ٱلزُّرَّاعَ) who tried to help the Jamat are the Representatives of every country that represent the field of Ahmadiyya in their respective countries and the flourishing and blooming produce of the Jamat vexes the opponents and God willing our growth would always stand as a Challenge. Also the word مِنْهُم ['those of them'] at the end of verse Number 30 reveals that not every one is enabled and there is the promise of much forgiveness for servants of the faith despite their small minor flaws. This is also in continuation of the triumphs of Islam. The association that sprung up with us in [being] the Latter Ones would culminate in the dominance of the faith brought by the Holy Prophet ﷺ over all other religions. The believers are told in Surah al-Hujrat that they should not step ahead in the presence of the Holy prophet ﷺ. Its meaning is (that the Holy Prophet ﷺ is) a Pillar. It is forbidden to speak before him in a loud voice. This is discourteous to the nobility of the Holy Prophet, and it is not a minor thing for if you do it your acts can go to waste and those who converse with the Holy Prophet in a low tone of voice are those who have succeeded in every trial of God-consciousness from Almighty God and there is forgiveness and a great reward awaiting them. 11 August 1998. © The Tahir Archive / MTA International, 2016.
