Brief Notes From The Lecture:

  • Allāh says,

قُلْ يَا عِبَادِ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اتَّقُوا رَبَّكُمْ ۚ لِلَّذِينَ أَحْسَنُوا فِي هَٰذِهِ الدُّنْيَا حَسَنَةٌ ۗ وَأَرْضُ
لله وَاسِعَةٌ ۗ إِنَّمَا يُوَفَّى الصَّابِرُونَ أَجْرَهُم بِغَيْرِ حِسَاب
قُلْ إِنِّي أُمِرْتُ أَنْ أَعْبُدَ اللَّهَ مُخْلِصًا لَّهُ الدِّينَ
وَأُمِرْتُ لِأَنْ أَكُونَ أَوَّلَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ  

"Say, 'O My servants who have believed, fear your Lord. For those who do good in this world is good, and the earth of Allāh is spacious. Indeed, the patient will be given their reward without account.'"

"Say, [O Muḥammad], 'Indeed, I have been commanded to worship Allāh, [being] sincere to Him in religion.'"

"And I have been commanded to be the first [among you] of the Muslims.”   (Sūrah al-Zumar; 39:10-12)

  • Imām al-Sa’dī (rahimahullāh) explained that “O My servants who have believed” refers to the best of creation, who is being commanded with the best of commands, which is Taqwá (piety).
  • Imām al-Sa’dī (rahimahullāh) said that the believers' fear of Allāh is necessitated by the following:
    1. The Lordship of Allāh – He created everything and is deserving of all worship.
    2. Allāh guided them to Islām and blessed them to be Muslims with Īmān.
  •  The definition of piety hasn’t changed from the time of the Prophets to now, regardless of place and time.
  •  “For those who do good in this world is good” - for those who worship Allāh alone, there is rizq (sustenance); they will be content.
  •  This is as Allāh says,

 مَنْ عَمِلَ صَالِحًا مِّن ذَكَرٍ أَوْ أُنثَىٰ وَهُوَ مُؤْمِنٌ فَلَنُحْيِيَنَّهُ حَيَاةً طَيِّبَةً

  •  “Whoever does righteousness, whether male or female, while he is a believer - We will surely cause him to live a good life” (Sūrah al-Naḥl; 16:97)
  •  “...and the earth of Allāh is spacious” - If you are prevented from worshiping Allāh, there is no excuse for not establishing the religion of Allāh and being a pious servant.
  •  Imām al-Sa’dī (rahimahullāh) said that this statement of the earth being spacious is a clarification by Allāh for those experiencing persecution.
  •  He said this is general and applicable to every time and place. If you are being prevented from the worship of Allāh in one place, then migrate to another.
  •  “Indeed, the patient will be given their reward without account” - being patient with the decree of Allāh, being patient with the obedience of Allāh and in staying away from His disobedience.
  •  “without account/reckoning” - without being limited or restricted to a particular amount.
  •  "Indeed, I have been commanded to worship Allāh, [being] sincere to Him in religion” - this is the essence of piety, which every Prophet and Messenger came with.
