Exposition of the Holy Quran – 114 An-Naas (G A Parwez)

Surah 114: An-Naas

(Mankind)

(1) (To achieve the objective mentioned in the preceding surah) We should come closer to the divine law which provides for the nourishment of the whole of humanity (and not for a particular group of people or tribe). He is the Rabb of the whole world (1:1);

(2) This is the law of the Almighty, Who is the only One with the right and authority to ask for obedience from mankind. His authority prevails in the universe, so people should accept only His sovereignty. He is the sole sovereign of all mankind.

(3) Only His law can provide protection to all mankind and it is only in this way that human beings can be safe from all dangers. He is the ilah of the whole of mankind.

(4-5) While strictly adhering to the divine laws, we have to be extremely cautious of the people who come stealthily to whisper into people’s ears and then withdraw, thus creating doubts in their minds and weakening their firm resolve.

(6) All this is done by people who are known to you as well as by strangers; and also through intangible forces (which operate through imperceptible psychological propaganda).

In order to sustain the divine system, one has to be very careful and cautious of these evil and destructive forces. The only way to do so is to always obey the divine laws.
