Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan delves into an explicit lecture and provides insight, lessons to imbibe and inculcate and reflections on some of the introductory Ayats of one of the most magnificent Surahs of the Qur’an – Surah Al Baqarah.
In the Ayats discussed here, the people of Iman believe in what Allah SWT sent them with, and in what the previous Messengers AS were sent with. They neither distinguish between them nor do they reject what they were sent with from Allah SWT. They believe in all of them because they all were for Hidayah given to other Prophets AS to provide the Message of Allah SWT.
Believers are those who are certain about the Day of Judgment when Allah SWT will ask them about all their good and bad deeds and consequently, Hell or Heaven will be decided. Our actions of Iman are only useful when we have belief in the Hereafter.
Allah SWT says in Ayat number 5 that those who believe in the Unseen, establish the prayer, spend from what Allah SWT has granted them, believe in what Allah SWT has revealed to the Messenger ﷺ and the Messengers before him AS, believe in the Hereafter with certainty, and prepare the necessary requirements for the Hereafter by performing good deeds and avoiding misdeeds, then they are on the right path.
Muflihoon is from Falah which implies success. Success always comes after hard work and effort and as a Muslim, we believe we will get Falah in the form of Jannah. If one does great effort in this world to get the love of Allah SWT and does this according to what is described in the Qur’an and proven by Sunnah, then he will get guidance and Falah on the Day of Judgment.
