Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan delves into the final Ayats 122 123 of Surah Al Baqarah on the discussion of the Israelites. This Ayat mimics Ayat number 47 of the same Surah. The points that are discussed here are:
- How the Israelites were conferred with numerous benefits apart from having Prophets and Messengers amongst them and how Allah did favors more than that done for previous generations.
- How they should accept the Final Revelation and they should be the first to believe it in also.
We should look at the blessings that Allah SWT has given us and not envy others. We should be pleased and content with what others have been blessed, but should never pray for their blessings to be snatched. Most importantly, we should also never lose focus of the Final Day – the Day of Judgement when man’s only concern will be his own salvation, so much so that parents will leave their children, and spouses and siblings will not worry about one another.
We are left with a parting note with a profound statement – ‘ Every trial is a Blessing.’
