|| 84:7-12. Islam is a strange thing – You get the result BEFORE the assessment of your exam paper! ||
84:7 As for those who are given their record in their right hand,
84:8 they will have an easy reckoning,
84:9 and will return to their people joyfully.
84:10 And as for those who are given their record ˹in their left hand˺ from behind their backs,
84:11 they will cry for ˹instant˺ destruction,
84:12 and will burn in the blazing Fire.
You sit for an exam.
You write the answers to the questions you know.
That’s your part.
Then what’s the part of the authority who takes the exam?
They assess your exam papers,
They give you a score against each of the questions according to your answer.
Finally, they come up with the total score and grade you.
Isn’t that the normal thing?
Isn’t that the standard way of assessment?
Isn’t that the standard way of judgment?
Isn’t that the standard way of giving out results?
How strange Islam is!
You get the result before your judgment
You get the score before your exam paper is being assessed!
This is Islam!
It doesn’t go with your set of standards!
It doesn’t go with the standard give you by the assembly of humans, the union of nations, you call it the ‘United Nations’, that you took as your Rabb! (Whoever applicable to. May Allah guide you, O you, who yet call yourself a ‘Muslim’)
Islam has its own standard!
It is the standard set by the owner of the Universe!
He, Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala has His standard!
What you can do about it?
And Al Hamdulillah!
He made me a Muslim!
Yeah Rabb, make us the one who receives the result in the right hand.
Yeah Mujeeb, save us from Jahannam! Ameen.
فَأَمَّا مَنْ أُوتِيَ كِتَابَهُ بِيَمِينِهِ
Then as for he who is given his record in his right hand,
যাকে তার আমলনামা ডান হাতে দেয়া হবে
فَسَوْفَ يُحَاسَبُ حِسَابًا يَسِيرًا
He will be judged with an easy account
তার হিসাব-নিকাশ সহজে হয়ে যাবে
وَيَنقَلِبُ إِلَىٰ أَهْلِهِ مَسْرُورًا
And return to his people in happiness.
এবং সে তার পরিবার-পরিজনের কাছে হৃষ্টচিত্তে ফিরে যাবে
وَأَمَّا مَنْ أُوتِيَ كِتَابَهُ وَرَاءَ ظَهْرِهِ
But as for he who is given his record behind his back,
এবং যাকে তার আমলনামা পিঠের পশ্চাদ্দিক থেকে দেয়া, হবে,
فَسَوْفَ يَدْعُو ثُبُورًا
He will cry out for destruction
সে মৃত্যুকে আহবান করবে,
And [enter to] burn in a Blaze.
এবং জাহান্নামে প্রবেশ করবে।
Save us from Jahannam! Ameen.
