22:52 Why do YOU have to seek knowledge YOURSELF? To understand which words of your Ulema could be from shaitan
The Ayah 22:52
And We did not send before you any messenger or prophet except that when he spoke [or recited], Satan threw into it [some misunderstanding]. But Allah abolishes that which Satan throws in; then Allah makes precise His verses. And Allah is Knowing and Wise.
Never did We send a Messenger or a Prophet before you, but when he did recite the revelation or narrated or spoke, Shaitan (Satan) threw (some falsehood) in it. But Allah abolishes that which Shaitan (Satan) throws in. Then Allah establishes His Revelations. And Allah is All-Knower, All-Wise:
আমি আপনার পূর্বে যে সমস্ত রাসূল ও নবী প্রেরণ করেছি, তারা যখনই কিছু কল্পনা করেছে, তখনই শয়তান তাদের কল্পনায় কিছু মিশ্রণ করে দিয়েছে। অতঃপর আল্লাহ দূর করে দেন শয়তান যা মিশ্রণ করে। এরপর আল্লাহ তাঁর আয়াতসমূহকে সু-প্রতিষ্ঠিত করেন এবং আল্লাহ জ্ঞানময়, প্রজ্ঞাময়।
My Critical Reasoning:
What type of Ayah is this?
the power of shaitan (that Allah allowed him)
and vulnerability of Allah’s messengers in tackling shaitan
Why Allah inform us this?
Anything and everything in the Quran should benefit us.
How this Ayah could benefit us?
Know the POWER of shaitan and then know your Ulema that you follow blindly. If shaitan could through his falsehood in the words of Allah’s messengers then what about your Ulema? Allah Subhanahu corrected His messengers straight away for His message to stay pure, but what about your Ulema today?
The scariest and most eye-opening Ayah for me! This Ayah is enough to get every Muslim on their toes! How do you then rest your jannah by blindly following your Ulema even who gives evidence from Quran and Hadith? Isn’t every Ulema of every sect following the same Quran and most of the times the same Hadith? And then doesn’t every Ulema study his Deen for 10/20/30/40 years! Then where would you go? How do you know, shaitan takes rest or goes for vacation when your Ulema talks non-stop? Even they teach you 99 things correct but just one thing could lead you to Jahannam as a slightest element of Shirk is enough for Jahannam and isn’t that the case today! shaitan just need one element of shirk! Naujubillah!
So, what’s your way out?
Read, contemplate, ask guidance and plead to Allah, the Most Merciful to have Rahma on you! shaitan is there to take sons of Adam to Jahannam.
But you need to show Allah, the Most Just, that you tried hard! Don’t think you continue your blind following and thinking “Allah is forgiving”
You better get rid of the mindset that
“Scholars study whole life so they must be correct”
or “If a scholar can make mistake what is my chance?”
or “I am listening to the scholars always”
You need to have a study method, an organized method! A study from facebook and youtube won’t be able to save you! You need to study from original books contineously to understand right from wrong! And then thinking by yourself and then only you can listen to the lectures so that you know which words of your Ulema could be from shaitan.
But on top of that, you need to be aware of your situation that how vulnerable you are against shaitan and make pleading to Allah, the Most Merciful to have Rahma on you! But show Allah, the all Watching, that you are constantly trying hard for His cause!
And Allah knows best. May Allah, the Most Merciful, save us from shaitan and save us from Jahannam! Ameen.
