2:61 Ah! Human is as such, they were not satisfied even with the heavenly food only because they just wanted a CHANGE! 

The Ayah Al-Baqarah 2:61


“And [recall] when you said, “O Moses, we can never endure one [kind of] food. So call upon your RABB to bring forth for us from the earth its green herbs and its cucumbers and its garlic and its lentils and its onions.” [Moses] said, “Would you exchange what is better for what is less? Go into [any] settlement and indeed, you will have what you have asked.” And they were covered with humiliation and poverty and returned with anger from Allah [upon them]. That was because they [repeatedly] disbelieved in the signs of Allah and killed the prophets without right. That was because they disobeyed and were [habitually] transgressing.”

আর যখন তোমরা বললে, ‘হে মূসা, আমরা এক খাবারের উপর কখনো ধৈর্য ধরব না। সুতরাং তুমি আমাদের জন্য তোমার রবের নিকট দো‘আ কর, যেন তিনি আমাদের জন্য বের করেন, ভূমি যে সব্জি, কাঁকড়, রসুন, মসুর ও পেঁয়াজ উৎপন্ন করে, তা’। সে বলল, ‘তোমরা কি যা উত্তম তার পরিবর্তে এমন জিনিস গ্রহণ করছ যা নিম্নমানের? তোমরা কোন এক নগরীতে অবতরণ কর। তবে নিশ্চয় তোমাদের জন্য (সেখানে) থাকবে, যা তোমরা চেয়েছ’। আর তাদের উপর আরোপ করা হয়েছে লাঞ্ছনা ও দারিদ্র্য এবং তারা আল্লাহর ক্রোধের শিকার হল। তা এই কারণে যে, তারা আল্লাহর আয়াতসমূহকে অস্বীকার করত এবং অন্যায়ভাবে নবীদেরকে হত্যা করত। তা এই কারণে যে, তারা নাফরমানী করেছিল এবং তারা সীমালঙ্ঘন করত।

My Reflection:

SubhanAllah! What do you see here?
Men were given heavenly food, literally dropping from the sky (Tafsir Ibne Katheer) yet they wanted a change! What these human things are, really!

They didn’t have to do any hard labour for earning food, they did not have to waste time on it, they didn’t have to die out of hunger. There would not have been any famine ever. SubhanAllah, still they were not satisfied. Because they did not have SABR (patience) or in other words, they didn’t like the same thing every day even if it had all the blessings and goodness.

It shows nothing but one, human will never satisfy in this life. Even you give the environment of peace, no arguments, nothing to dislike, nobody to quarrel, no hunger, no difficulties in life, yet this won’t keep them satisfied for a long time because they would just want a CHANGE!

That’s the human being! and that’s about this life.
And that’s just a CERTAIN knowledge about the human being.

Share, if there's benefit in it. Dawah benefits YOU!
