Bismillah ArRahman ArRahim. Allahumma Rabbana Zidna ilma. Allahumma Rabbana Ihdinas sira talmustaqim. Amma ba’du
Surah As-Sajda, Verse 24:
وَجَعَلْنَا مِنْهُمْ أَئِمَّةً يَهْدُونَ بِأَمْرِنَا لَمَّا صَبَرُوا وَكَانُوا بِآيَاتِنَا يُوقِنُونَ
And We made of them Imams to guide by Our command when they were patient, and they were certain of Our communications.
And We made them imams, i.e ulamas or daie Allah to guide people by Our command, i.e Our shariah. When they were patient in preaching Our shariah to the people. And they were before certain of Our Words from the Torah. Certain only after they study the Torah.
Surah As-Sajda, Verse 25:
إِنَّ رَبَّكَ هُوَ يَفْصِلُ بَيْنَهُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ فِيمَا كَانُوا فِيهِ يَخْتَلِفُونَ
Surely your Lord will judge between them on the day of resurrection concerning that wherein they differ.
Surely on the day of Judgment, Your Lord will judge you concerning what was between them, they differ.
Yakh talifuun – differ. It’s about one haq and batil. It’s about the truth and shrik. It’s about tauhid and tawasul or intermediator. It’s about going to heaven and going to helfire. It’s the utmost important.
It’s something that you must be sure what’s tauhid and shrik. You must not be in doubt.
Surah As-Sajda, Verse 26:
أَوَلَمْ يَهْدِ لَهُمْ كَمْ أَهْلَكْنَا مِن قَبْلِهِم مِّنَ الْقُرُونِ يَمْشُونَ فِي مَسَاكِنِهِمْ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ أَفَلَا يَسْمَعُونَ
Does it not point out to them the right way, how many of the generations, in whose abodes they go about, did We destroy before them? Most surely there are signs in this; will they not then hear?
Don’t you know, don’t We show you the way of truth, and if you still disbelief , then you should study about those who had disbelief to their Lord before.
That, how many of those people in many generations, when a preacher came and they abode / disbelief about tauhid, who just walk and lived on this earth and We destroyed them due to their sins.
Most surely , there were signs of them. Why won’t they hear? Means why won’t they learn tafseer Quran?
Surah As-Sajda, Verse 27:
أَوَلَمْ يَرَوْا أَنَّا نَسُوقُ الْمَاءَ إِلَى الْأَرْضِ الْجُرُزِ فَنُخْرِجُ بِهِ زَرْعًا تَأْكُلُ مِنْهُ أَنْعَامُهُمْ وَأَنفُسُهُمْ أَفَلَا يُبْصِرُونَ
Do they not see that We drive the water to a land having no herbage, then We bring forth thereby seed-produce of which their cattle and they themselves eat; will they not then see?
Do they not see, do they no learn or think. That We drive the water that were in drought, then with rain, We bring forth crops, grass of which they feed their cattle and other crops they eat.
Why won’t they see? i.e why won’t they think? what???
That Allah is the One that created everything and it is He that you must worship
Surah As-Sajda, Verse 28:
وَيَقُولُونَ مَتَىٰ هَٰذَا الْفَتْحُ إِن كُنتُمْ صَادِقِينَ
And they say: When will this judgment take place, If you are truthful?
This verse is about mushrikin, one who do shrik to Allah. When nabi preach to them and give warning about not believing. When nabi warn them that those who disbelief will be in helfire, they will say when? if you are truthful, give hell to us now.
That’s what it meant
Surah As-Sajda, Verse 29:
قُلْ يَوْمَ الْفَتْحِ لَا يَنفَعُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا إِيمَانُهُمْ وَلَا هُمْ يُنظَرُونَ
Say: On the day of judgment the faith of those who (now) disbelieve will not profit them, nor will they be respited.
If anyone ask you similar questions, then this is what you should say. Say to them the when is only Allah can do. I am only preaching you. The day of Judgment, will not profit those who disbelief in tauhid. As when they were in herafter, they will belief. But Allah only accept iman before death.
Nor will they be allowed to be respite.
If we tabligh or preach them about tauhid and they won’t accept our tabligh /preaching. Allah say onto to you.
Surah As-Sajda, Verse 30:
فَأَعْرِضْ عَنْهُمْ وَانتَظِرْ إِنَّهُم مُّنتَظِرُونَ
Therefore turn away from them and wait, surely they too are waiting.
So turn away from them and wait as surely they too are waiting.
If they object to your preaching, we will have to continue to preach them as we don’t know if Allah had shutdown their heart. But we can tabligh to others. And we wait, because we will die. Only after dead do we know if they had accepted our preaching.
And they will also wait for their death but they don’t think about death. So they will actually wait as one day they too will die.
