QURAN THE BOOK OF SELF REALIZATION

QURAN THE BOOK OF SELF REALIZATION

The content of the book Quran is not for the purpose of an eulogy that continuously praises an unknown God - It is not also for individuals to memorize or sing it in a rhythmic tone or speaks about the feats of "The Creator God" to get extra rewards - The book is also not also about some "Holy Family" - The book Quran is not even about promoting God and His team of angels, messengers, prophets... The book is also not about community building or society laws neither it is about marriage, divorce or dominating female gender.


It is an anti religious and anti Sky God book. It is neither a biography nor a book of moral science that teaches permanent values or that gives an account of someone else's life or character so that we could emulate or learn from them. In fact, the specialty of the script of the book Quran is that it penetrates deep inside the reader's mind through various captivating parables and makes its presence felt, as if it is directly talking about our inner self (nafs) and how our thought control us while we remain spectators by witnessing the experience, the happenings within us. The book only talks about self (NAFS), discussing anything else is an insult of that magnificent book.

MISWAK

The miswak (miswaak, siwak, sewak, Arabic: سواك‎ or مسواك) is a teeth cleaning twig made from the Salvadora persica tree (known as arāk, أراك, in Arabic). It is reputed to have been used over 7,000 years.

I don't know why it is exclusively attributed to Islam and Muslims when the entire world including the arch enemy of Islam Abu Jahl too was using it. As far as I know there was no invention of tooth paste or tooth brush then 🖌️- So using miswak was also a habitual practice (sunnat) of Abu Jahl too.
Don't make natural things holy or unholy in the name of religion.

QURAN IS NOT THE BOOK OF VERSES



Quran is not the book of verses but it is the book of signs (آيات‎) which contains established (ٱلْمُسْتَقِيمَ) road maps (ٱلصِّرَٰطَ) for the agitated minds (الناس‎). The entire theme and context of the book Quran is human mind. One of the meaning of nafs نفس is human mind or psyche.

The truth is we all unknowingly serve and seek help from our own knowledgeable mind or the universal conscious mind (رَبِّ ٱلْعَـٰلَمِينَ) - The right guidance for the right path is also given provided we serve our conscious mind properly.

إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِينُ

ٱهْدِنَا ٱلصِّرَٰطَ ٱلْمُسْتَقِيمَ

We will never understand the book Quran if we study it in the context of human history or history of "The Biblical or Islamic Prophets" or in the context of "Heavenly God."

GO BEYOND WHAT YOUR PREDECESSORS COULD NOT SEE

 

Life must not be a daily battle to excel. It's a continuous struggle of thought process swinging between gloom and glow. Enjoy the challenge of roller coaster called Life. It must not be a fight against each other but against one's own self.
Life is a self searching project to understand the mystery of self, origin of thoughts, efforts to understand our own script of life, self's urges, self's desire, self's purpose, self's role and freedom to seek the enlightenment to choose the right path. A struggle to see with our own eyes and think with our own heads rather than depending or relying on writings we don't understand.
One of the popular stand of the masses while arguing is that they stood on the solid grounds of what their forefathers believed and what the majority followed. I don't summarily reject what our predecessors thought or what society thinks. But are we going to stop at where they ended or are we going to probe the pages of life further? There could be nothing more leisurely and luxurious than to believe in the illusion of a living comfortably while being parasitic on borrowed thoughts. We can rest in the comfort of our parental upbringing but the problem is the world is not standing still, it keeps on changing. And ideas have to evolve, grow further and must be conducive to adaptation according to the demand of the current situation. We cannot rely on old solutions to open new doors. We just cannot afford to relax and wait for the imaginary "Day of Judgement" or judge people by calling names - One has to take accounts for their own thoughts and deeds every moment. The alibi of the borrowed ideas will not take you anywhere except in the labyrinth of darkness.
The serious question to ask is whether my ideas are my own or borrowed. We often make others' thoughts as our own because of the inability to think for ourselves. This inability to think is often induced, institutionalised and celebrated by those having herd mentality. We have made simple religions as specialised subjects. We look to "experts" to do the religious thinking for us like how we sometimes let the quacks do the medical thinking for our own health and we don't ever make an effort to ponder independently about the consequences it may have on our mind and body. We don't feel like educating ourselves on such important matters. We let others to do thinking on behalf of our own thoughts. I would fain to buy this argument if any sane thinking mind accepted alibi.
Thinking is too important to be left in the hands of either the clerics or the ideological zealots. This is not just a matter of physical life and death. This is even much bigger. It is a question of our existence. It is a question of living between Light and Darkness.
Our own mind is the vibrant messenger don't bury it and sing unnecessary hymns upon the "holy personalities". Usually people are dumb and deaf, they don't realise it and have been ignoring the living inherent voice of the messenger for a very long time. Its high time that we heed the inherent messages, signs, indicators that are much clearer, self explanatory, relevant to self, pure, authentic & free than the what is served to us from the clergy's pulpit.






May be an image of text that says 'Le de ke apne paas faqat ek nazar to hai Kyon dekhen zindagi ko kisi ki nazar se hum Maana ke is zameeñ ko na gulzaar kar kar sake Kuch khaar kam to kar diye, guzre jidhar se hum In all, we have just one view, our own Why should we see the world through someone else's eyes? We could not turn the world into a garden, we accept But at least we removed some thorns from the paths we trod -Sahir Ludhianvi'

SHIRK

 

It is often misunderstood that mentioning Allah along with Rasul is like association of partnership (shirk) but what we failed to understand is that the book Quran emphasis that obeying rasul is like obeying allah. Those who believe Allah as a God and Rasul as His human deputy will never understand the message of the book Quran on the contrary they will be lost in the History of Middle East "Prophets".



"MUSLIMS" DON'T WANT TO COME OUT OF THEIR "HISTORICAL PRISON" 😔

 "MUSLIMS" DON'T WANT TO COME OUT OF THEIR "HISTORICAL PRISON"

😔
Isn't it foolishness and fall of human intellect to personify and conceive an Unimaginable God as a fathomable Owner of a Big Enterprise❓Dictating His terms and conditions in old Arabic language to a poor orphan during the last 23 years of his life. Mohammad bin Abdullah (saw) who reportedly died in 632 CE was that special Chosen Man of God from Arabian Peninsula.
Traditions say Mohammad (S) was entrusted by God to lead mankind from darkness to light. For that purpose we were made to believe that his chest was opened and his heart 💔 was purified by an Angel when he was still a child. After the age of 40 he regularly used to receive messages of guidance from God through 24x7 Gabriel (a.s) courier service as and when the situation demanded. The blessed chosen one (mustufa) even travelled across seventh heaven to meet his Lord God.
Looking from the traditional point of view it is believed that the job of unlettered Mohammad bin Abdullah (pbuh) was to spread and implement the Laws of God upon the entire Earth 🌍 It is strongly believed that the book of God is dictated in old Arabic language and is meant for the entire mankind irrespective of what language they know. Learning the Quranic language is a part of "Islamic culture" and matter of pride for every individual Muslim.
The devote followers of Mohammad (saw) are supposed to strictly adhere to the "Divine Laws" of the Quran by learning Qur'anic Arabic with the understanding of the manufactured historical context. According to Islamic scholars God revealed particular verses on specific occasion to Mohammad bin Abdullah (pbuh) for imparting fixed solutions for the benefit of entire mankind. Later on it became incumbent on every sincere mohammadans to persuade his mission of spreading the archaic contextual teachings across the globe 🌎 and even in this modern world.
This mission is undertaken to please the Imperceptible God because if He is satisfied with His devotees for correctly practicing the given commandments then they are entitled for an easy passage to the promised land filled with beautiful young maidens, exotic food, rivers flowing with water, milk, honey and alcohol in Paradise.
The gullible followers fell in the trap of enchanting Paradise. Apart from understanding the book Quran they also made an extra efforts to study the "genuine history books," by searching for the right contextual happenings for the particular situational verses, without which it is said the message cannot be inferred correctly.
The present understanding of the entire Quran depends on the particular situation, circumstances and happenings of "history" before 632 CE.
Unfortunately this is the only text book in the world where common sense, expertise of language, grammar and context within is ignored or is less important than the outside context forged by the third parties after 632 CE. The creators of the Qur'anic context were astonishingly not even the contemporaries of author of the book. This is a tremendous mockery of a Great Arabic Literature by none others but by those who claim that they love the book Quran more than their lives.
What a tragedy❗ A book said to be the word of Arabic God but cannot be understood without the crutches of history written by Persian men.
Bigger concern is majority of "Muslims" believe their brain is incapable to correctly guide them so they need to rely on the catalogue which they cannot comprehend. This is the reason they continue to believe in such unpalatable mythologies. A major reason for their downfall and humiliation is that they think the translation of the book done by their respective scholars is real message of the Quran. 🙏

THE TRAGEDY WITH THE BOOK QURAN

 

THE TRAGEDY WITH THE BOOK QURAN ❗
The biggest lie or blasphemy ever been openly told to Muslims that every verse of the book Quran is historically contextualised. A false impression was created in the ignorant minds that the message can only be correctly inferred by taking proper historical context into consideration. Tell me how a historical contextualized book can be a permanent piece of guidance for all time?
To make their forgery justifiable and popular, a special tool in the name of shaan e nuzool or particular context of the circumstances of "revelation" was cleverly crafted so that the verses of the Quran can be easily manipulated under the false pretext of right context. Each verses of the Quran was separately linked and twisted to fit in with the invented context thereby ignoring the actual theme and context of the Quranic narratives. This way they broke the interrelated sequence of a single storyline into separate statements of edict.
The intense stealth operation was undertaken to sabotage the living message backwardly into the canons of the dead. Exclusive dictionaries, lexicons and rules were created for the tailor-made study of terminologies of the Quran.
Lastly systematic religious schools were established in various "Islamic" belts by "Arab and Persian Imams"- where these fabricated compiled events were taught so that to justify why the new concocted syllabus is linked in the response of so and so verses of the Quran that was revealed to clarify particular circumstances. In such bogus way "scholars" of Islam were produced where more emphasis is given on pronunciation, rote reading and mugging up the "Islamic stories" by heart.
Finally studying of these fictitious context or events have become more important than the actual message of the Quran. For the followers of the book Quran understanding the pure message without these deceitful contexts became an unimaginable dilemma. The ultimate result was that the vibrant message got intangled in the slyly woven stories thus making the message intangible without the invented historical context.

SALAT IS CONNECTION

The basic purpose of salat is to connect with our own quran and with our own script (al-kitab), not the physical book of 114 chapters. The establishment of salat is not easy except for the humble and patient. Gibbering is not salat but ritual prayer called namaz in the Indian subcontinent.

ISA IBN MARYAM

 

Proverb 3:20 "Behold, I stand at the door and knock, if anyone opens the door after hearing my words, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me"
In the book Quran Isa ibn Maryam is personified as the zenith of knowledge. He is called the word of allah (bikalimatinminhu 3:45), the one who continuously knock on your door of knowledge (heart and mind) providing you food for thoughts so that you can chew on them and evolve.
Listen to the words of wisdom through Isa ibn Maryam. Resurrect Isa in you, keep your doors open to hear and obey.

AYAAT IS SIGNS NOT VERSES

 

One cannot understand the message of the book Quran simply by just literal selective reading. There are signs in it which we need to decode. Unless we understand the overall theme of its message, we cannot able to grasp it's gist.

KALIMAH SHAHADAT

 

La ilaha ilallah, muhammdur rasul allah - utterance of this phrase is a must to become the member of the elite club called Islam or Muslim.
This phrase is called Kalimah i Shahdat which means utterance of testimony of evidence by witnessing. Kalimah means utterance or words and Shahdat simply means to witness to see or to know thoroughly and able to explain to others as well.
Only those can provide such witness who have seen allah and mohammad with their physical eyes and if people demanded proof of their testimony they can able to give evidence of it.
Now you tell me readers have any so called Muslims have seen allah and muhammad in their lifetime, so how can they utter these words as a witness.
The complete phrase is
“Ashadu an la ilaha illa illa-ilah, wa ashadu anna muhammadan rasul ullah.” Translation: “ I bear witness that there is no God/god but allah, and muhammad is the rasul of allah.”
Now my question to those who utter these words, have they seen allah and mohammad in their lifetime. If not how can they say I bear witness if you have not seen them.
Are Muslims not committing perjury by professing that they have seen allah and rasul, when the truth is that they have not seen allah and rasul ❓
I hope you got my point ‼️

FRIDAY PRAYERS

 

The word Namaz is a derivative of Persian Sanskrit words, usually synonyms with worship or bowing before fire 🔥- The origin of this word is from Zoroastrianism.

 

The word Salat is a Quranic term for connection or reconciliation process of mind, body and soul.

 

The main focus in namaz is on physical movement performed in a prescribed way plus facing towards stone cubical structure in city Mecca and uttering of verses from Quran and non Quranic sources. This is done only by those who called themselves followers of Islam religion.

 

Whereas Salat has a universal appeal, it is a connection with your consciousness [Rabb], we do not have to know or understand Arabic language. Connection [salat] requires intense thought process whereas namaz requires no understanding, only good memory to mug up few Arabic verses.

 

 The only criteria for establishing salat is that we must be pure and focused plus liberate ourselves from all filthy thoughts (mushrik) that distract us from knowing our true purpose or aim. Salat is a conversation with ourselves in our own language in order to connect, gather, call,  reconcile, kill or eliminate then harmonize all our thoughts for the purpose of achieving peace of mind, in Arabic we call it Islam. 🙏

 

The configuration of thoughts in Quranic parlance is called qaum (community which remains standstill but continuously work). When these thoughts assemble, become harmonious and synchronized together, this moment of interconnectedness is called Salati min yaumil Jumah in Quranic terminology where you are your own leader (Imam), accumulating your scattered thoughts together and leading yourself to Peace (Islam) while no diversion must entice you.

SALAT / NAMAZ

 It is widely known statement among Muslims that Salat is Meraj المعراج (ascension) of Momin (believer). The derogatory form of Salat is the popular ritual called Namaz in Indian subcontinent. Salat is a tool of connection which brings the true believer close to his actual Self. Salat is the communication between us and our inherent script (al-kitab) which is not an easy task.

2:45 - وَاسْتَعِينُواْ بِالصَّبْرِ وَالصَّلاَةِ وَإِنَّهَا لَكَبِيرَةٌ إِلاَّ عَلَى الْخَاشِعِينَ

2:45 - Seek help in patience and salat; and truly it is hard save for the humble-minded,

Salat helps us to know ourselves provided we purify (tazkiya nafs) ourselves first. Zakat is purification of soul and not 2.5% annual charity. Salat is not a worship to a deity called Allah as usually believed by the devotees of Traditional Arab Religion.
THE QURANIC SALAT UPLIFTS YOU MENTALLY, SPIRITUALLY AND MATERIALISTICALLY WHILE THE RITUAL NAMAZ IS JUST A FUTILE ARABIC PHYSICAL DRILL THAT UPLIFTS NO-ONE.

SABR - صَبْرٌ



Sabr is one of the most misunderstood word. People unnecessarily procrastinate and called it sabr.

The essence of word sabr is when it is impossible to survive & you are determined to stand up.

The lexicographers have given the example of dessert plant cactus for defining the word sabr. This plant survives in spite of intense dessert heat and lack of water, this is sabr, to stand up and work to survive in spite of all adversity.

Sabr (Arabic: صَبْرٌ‎) 'perseverance' and 'persistence' is one of the criteria for living a peaceful life (Islam).

AL-QURAN IS NOT A RELIGIOUS BOOK

Al-Quran is not a religious book but a concise guide in Arabic language on how to manage our own thought process and ego for living a peaceful life.

Unfortunately we associate this book with the community who called themselves Muslim or to be more precise with Arab culture. But the fact is originally Islam was a extended version of Jewish Christian philosophy.

"Muslims" or "non Muslims" can understand the message of the book Quran, only if they study this book like how any truth seeker study any other topic. The student must examine this book independently without prejudice as a specialize subject and not as a book of any particular religion. The reader should read this book simply as a human being who is not affiliated to any ideology and without having any preconceived notion.

Kafir, Mushrik, Munafiq, Muslim, Momin are not derogatory or holy words but these words describe the state of mind of each individuals irrespective of their religious background.

The essence of Qur'anic word Qatal is not related with physical killing. The word qatal signifies fighting and killing our own Kafir, Mushrik thoughts by feeding them thoroughly with education.

Everything is allowed nothing is forbidden, no matter what rituals we perform or follow, if they are harmless to us and the society. Any action done with full awareness and capacity to own the responsibility is permissible. Activities that kick our mind to remain happy and peaceful permanently is Islam.

Islam is not about pleasing God and his army of Angels but pleasing and taking care of our own self, provided it does not harm the self or others.
Jannah and Jahannam are the state of our own mind. Entering in them is solely our responsibility and choice. Jannah is hidden garden of enlightenment in us and Jahannam is a dark hole of ignorance in us. We are our own accountant and nobody else is going to take our accounts.

Akhirah is not hereafter or after death but it is a procrastination process which we all go through before meeting or finding our own true Self.

Peace to us, Peace to All is Islam. Salam is one of the greatest attribute of a Muslim.

Salamun Alaikum - Peace to all must be the slogan of every Peaceful person irrespective of their cultural or religious background.

SURAH 68 AL- QALAM

2018 / JANUARY



SURAH 68 -  AL QALAM - THE PEN OF DESIRE



ARABIC LITERATURE: 

This surah starts with initial ن

ن - Such type of separate alphabets are called initials or broken letters (Huroof e Muqattat). These abbreviations stand for some words. Abbreviations are used in all languages and Arabic is no exception to it. Arabs used similar letters in their verses which denotes some meaning according to context. نون (nun) according to EWL also means a dimple in a chin of a young child it also means hollow cavity in a mountain in which water stagnates- A dent in the ground due to rain, the depression generally happens on soft stone - it also means oblong depression between mustaches - pot filled with color liquid or dust.
 
In this surah the verses are arranged in such a manner that almost all the verses ends with the 'Nun' sound. It points to the poetic format of this text which facilitates learning by heart as it produces a very charming rhythmic meter. A large number of scholarly books have been written over the centuries on the possible meanings and probable significance of these disjointed letters the muqatta’at. Opinions have been numerous but without a final conclusion. They are also known as fawātih (فواتح) or "openers" as they form the opening verse of their respective surahs or chapters. 

Amin Ahsan Islahi a renowned exegete of the book Qur'an, has mentioned that since Arabs once used such letters in their Pre-Islamic Arabic poetries, it was only appropriate for the text of Qur'an to use that same style. He agrees with Fakhr Al-Din Al-Razi (a classical commentator of the Quran) and mentions that since these letters are names for Surahs, they are proper nouns. So there is nothing mysterious or holy about it. The original Quranic text does not contain the title of the surahs and its a later addition for easy references, neither they were represented by numericals. These Quranic chapters were actually represented by initials or first verse of the surah itself.

By the end of the sixth century—the most brilliant period in the ancient history of the Arabs—the Arabic language attained its greatest perfection, in consequence, it is said, of the poetical contests which took place at the annual fair that was held at ‘Ukātz during the month of pilgrimage (Dhu’l-hajj). "For, as every tribe had many words peculiar to itself," says Sir W. Jones, "the poets, for the convenience of the measure, or sometimes for their singular beauty, made use of them all; and as the poems became popular these words were by degrees incorporated with the whole language: like a number of little streams which meet together in one channel, and, forming a most bountiful river, flow rapidly into the sea." The several tribes of the peninsula vied with each other in sending their best poets to represent them at the ‘Ukātz assembly. Of these "Prize Poems" seven, entitled The Mu‘allaqāt, par excellence, are preserved in many of the European libraries: they are the composition of Imra’u-’l-Qays; Tarafa; Zuhayr; Lebīd; ‘Antara; ‘Amr; and El-Hārith.

These poems which were considered as most excellent were afterwards written upon silk, in characters of gold, and hung up in the Temple and now on the walls of the house for decorative purpose — hence, it has been supposed, they were called Mu‘allaqāt, or "Suspended."

The authors of the Mu‘allaqāt were all men of high poetical genius, although they were in no sense possessed of literary culture - indeed, it is almost certain that scarcely one of them could read and write. They were natural poets, whose ignorance of letters was fully compensated by a nice sense of rhythm and the faculty of clearly and vigorously expressing in their rich and copious language what they thought and felt. The people of that era called them genius which means one possessed by genii. According to dictionary genii is a plural of genius page 798-797 Webster's Encyclopedic Unabridged Dictionary. And this very thing is called مَجْنُونٍ  (Majnoon) in Arabic, the possessed one. Although genie is an English word but its root is found in Arabic language. A jinn is an Islamic mythological character also known as spirit, which can take a human form.   

What is Poetry? 

Poetry is always difficult to understand than the prose. Poetry is a form of literature that uses aesthetic and rhythmic qualities of language—such as phonaesthetics, sound symbolism, and metre—to evoke meanings in addition to, or in place of, the prosaic ostensible meaning. In poetry we have to decipher the message in order to reach the intellect level of the poet. This needs a lot of real imagination and common sense, thus the need arises for an exegesis. There can be many versions of the same poem, depends upon the intellect level of the interpreter.

Poetry as an art form may predate literacy. Epic poetry, from the Indian Vedas(1700–1200 BC) and Zoroaster's Gathas to the Odyssey (800– 675 BC), appears to have been composed in poetic form to aid memorization and oral transmission, in prehistoric and ancient societies. Other forms of poetry developed directly from folk songs. The earliest entries in the ancient compilation Shiling, were initially lyrics, preceding later entries intended to be read. The oldest surviving epic poem is the Epic of Gilgamesh, from the 3rd millennium BC in Sumer (in Mesopotamia, now Iraq), which was written in cuneiform script on clay tablets and, later, Papyrus. The oldest love poem is only slightly younger sitting among Sumerian documents such as a court verdict from 2030 B.C. Other ancient epic poetry includes the Greek epics lliad and Odyssey, the Old Iranian books the Gathic Avesta and Yasna, the Roman national epic, Virgil's Aeneid, and the Indian epics Ramayana and Mahabharata.

In short, poetry facilitates quick memorization as memorization was the only mode available to keep records intact in those days, when writing was a luxury for a common man. In olden days Hufaz (who can memorized) were respected a lot and was in great demand and people relied on them for information related to different topics.

The script of this surah is a conversation between our Consciousness (Rabb) and the audience. The surah addresses in 1st, 2nd and 3rd person. A very powerful surah aimed at directing us to achieve higher level of Consciousness and discard all that negativity that prevents us from attaining that goal.


EXEGESIS: 

Al Qalam signifies a means by which a person carves out or shapes its destiny or personality. Al-Qalam is not an ordinary pen but a special pen of the sculpture whose ink pot is filled with desire of different colors by which one sketches or writes down the resume of ones own life.  The Quranic translator Maulana Muhammad Ali (1897- 1951) has rightly interpreted the letter ن as an ink pot as the preceding verse clearly explains its function. According to classical lexicons Qalam also means something which is sought after / desirous / neat or pure, e.g a meat cut neatly without skin or hair, bones, intestine and legs can be termed as qalam. The basic meaning of qalam is to cut, trim, prune especially to increase fruitfulness and growth. Verses 1-4 describe how the man attains the highest pinnacle of evolutionary process by channelizing or trimming the desires in a proper way to achieve this highest rank among other species. I deduced Al-Qalam as the person/sculptor or a bud/sapling who has the potential to grow into a good character or a model or a figure or a statue by which the personality is contoured.

The respected author is assuring such personalities who are the model for growth of the highest level of evolution of consciousness, that they are not at all self-possessed as many people around them feel. Their seemingly self-possessiveness is actually a blessing for the people. It is not madness as some people think. People will soon discover their reason for being always occupied in contemplation. There will always be an opposition to them, but do not get affected with it. Your Consciousness is aware of who is on the right track. If you want to reach the highest goal, do not follow ignorant, deniers, jealous people, over-confident people who are habitual swearers, people of malicious intent or gossipers, slanderers, cunning manipulators, or intense greedy people. These people transgress all limits and will surely face the stigma and ignominy in this life.

Some people who wish to be enlightened and they become overwhelmed by the enlightenment, on realizing it they remained silent, fearing that they would have to face the ire and abandonment if they grasped the bitter fact of life. But only those who are determined to understand the message will be able to continue the learning process and implement it. To deviate from the prevalent thought process or beliefs is not an easy task except for the righteous and diligent who are favored by their consciousness due to their tremendous inclination towards acquiring the real knowledge. 

After the emergence of dawn of the real knowledge, the ones who opposed it realized their folly, blaming each other for the lapse. Some among them accepted that they tried to acquire the facts but were misguided because they were prejudice/unfair/unjust/narrow minded and transgressed all limits of decency. Nevertheless hoping that they would amend their ways, but this is only easy for those who are righteous and diligent, they enjoy the protection from their Rabb (consciousness) and they have the chances of amendment.

There will be no chastisement for the peaceful submitters from their Rabb. Chastisement is only for those who are over-smart and they tend to treat their own assessment and judgement as a final authority, they do not believe in patience, they make their opinion, assessment, judgement based on their outside temptations. Their mental perception created by these outside temptations becomes so powerful that it begins to suppress their own inner calling from their Rabb (consciouness) and eventually treat it as secondary. These people are disloyal to their Master (Rabb), the final authority of man. Instead they make their own assessment and judgement, a co-partner in the decision making process of the Creator of Mankind. On this account they face a severe humiliation and chastisement because they did not listen to the knowledgeable Rabb (Rabbul-Aalameen). Their judgments that are based on temptations become their lord, rather bigger than the Rabb, which is termed as Shirk (co-partner) in Islamic terminology, and for this they have to face the consequences.  The Rabb does not tolerate any interference in His Kingdom, He is the indisputable King.

However your Rabb is with the righteous, so do not make friends with the ignorant as they will make you slip down from your blissful kingdom.

إِنَّا بَلَوْنَاهُمْ كَمَا بَلَوْنَا أَصْحَابَ الْجَنَّةِ إِذْ أَقْسَمُوا لَيَصْرِمُنَّهَا مُصْبِحِينَ 17

Indeed We have tried them as We have tried the protected one, When they share the emergence of enlightenment, for the hack of it 

وَلَا يَسْتَثْنُونَ 18

And not concealing (the knowledge)

فَطَافَ عَلَيْهَا طَائِفٌ مِّن رَّبِّكَ وَهُمْ نَائِمُونَ 19

So overwhelmed by it, an overpowering from your Consciousness while they were inactive

فَأَصْبَحَتْ كَالصَّرِيمِ 20

So it happened as if an accomplishment / realization

فَتَنَادَوْا مُصْبِحِينَ 21

So they wish the emergence of dawn (enlightenment)

أَنِ اغْدُوا عَلَىٰ حَرْثِكُمْ إِن كُنتُمْ صَارِمِينَ 22

 "That the Prospects are on your achievement, that you would be in realization"

فَانطَلَقُوا وَهُمْ يَتَخَافَتُونَ 23

So they separated and became silent

أَن لَّا يَدْخُلَنَّهَا الْيَوْمَ عَلَيْكُم مِّسْكِينٌ 24

That it will not be understood at this moment of stillness fallen upon you 

وَغَدَوْا عَلَىٰ حَرْدٍ قَادِرِينَ 25

And the prospects are on the determination of those who value

فَلَمَّا رَأَوْهَا قَالُوا إِنَّا لَضَالُّونَ 26

But when they saw it (the real knowledge) They said "Indeed we were surely misguided"

بَلْ نَحْنُ مَحْرُومُونَ 27

"Moreover we are deprived"

قَالَ أَوْسَطُهُمْ أَلَمْ أَقُل لَّكُمْ لَوْلَا تُسَبِّحُونَ 28

The most moderate of them said, "Did I not say to you; why did not you made an effort" 

قَالُوا سُبْحَانَ رَبِّنَا إِنَّا كُنَّا ظَالِمِينَ 29

They said "Our Consciousness made a tremendous effort, Indeed but  we were unjust through out."

فَأَقْبَلَ بَعْضُهُمْ عَلَىٰ بَعْضٍ يَتَلَاوَمُونَ 30

Then some of them accepted - some blaming on each other

قَالُوا يَا وَيْلَنَا إِنَّا كُنَّا طَاغِينَ 31

They said, "O woe to us; indeed we were transgressors throughout."

عَسَىٰ رَبُّنَا أَن يُبْدِلَنَا خَيْرًا مِّنْهَا إِنَّا إِلَىٰ رَبِّنَا رَاغِبُونَ 32

"Hopefully our Consciousness will change from it to a better one, Indeed we are eagerly inclined towards our Consciousness"

كَذَ‌ٰلِكَ الْعَذَابُ ۖ وَلَعَذَابُ الْآخِرَةِ أَكْبَرُ ۚ لَوْ كَانُوا يَعْلَمُونَ 33

As well the chastisement - and surely the rearmost/last chastisement is greater if they know

إِنَّ لِلْمُتَّقِينَ عِندَ رَبِّهِمْ جَنَّاتِ النَّعِيمِ 34

Indeed for the righteous diligent deviation/pulling towards their Consciousness is an easy  security

أَفَنَجْعَلُ الْمُسْلِمِينَ كَالْمُجْرِمِينَ 35

Shall We then treat the peaceful submitters like criminals ?

مَا لَكُمْ كَيْفَ تَحْكُمُونَ 36

What is [the matter] with you? How do you assess/judge/follow ?

37 أَمْ لَكُمْ كِتَابٌ فِيهِ تَدْرُسُونَ
 
Or do you have something written through which you continuously study ?

إِنَّ لَكُمْ فِيهِ لَمَا تَخَيَّرُونَ 38

That for you shall have through it whatever you choose ?

أَمْ لَكُمْ أَيْمَانٌ عَلَيْنَا بَالِغَةٌ إِلَىٰ يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ ۙ إِنَّ لَكُمْ لَمَا تَحْكُمُونَ 39

Or do you have any control upon Us, extending until the moment of establishment, that indeed for you is whatever you asses/judge/follow ?

سَلْهُمْ أَيُّهُم بِذَ‌ٰلِكَ زَعِيمٌ 40

You ask of them (assessment/judgement) which of them, will stand guarantee.

أَمْ لَهُمْ شُرَكَاءُ فَلْيَأْتُوا بِشُرَكَائِهِمْ إِن كَانُوا صَادِقِينَ 41

Or for them co-partners ? Then let them present along with their co-partners, if they are truthful.

يَوْمَ يُكْشَفُ عَن سَاقٍ وَيُدْعَوْنَ إِلَى السُّجُودِ فَلَا يَسْتَطِيعُونَ 42

The Day the agenda will be uncovered and they are invited to understand humbly but they will not be able,

خَاشِعَةً أَبْصَارُهُمْ تَرْهَقُهُمْ ذِلَّةٌ ۖ وَقَدْ كَانُوا يُدْعَوْنَ إِلَى السُّجُودِ وَهُمْ سَالِمُونَ 43

Their mental perception humbled, humiliation will cover them. And they used to be invited to understand while they were free.

فَذَرْنِي وَمَن يُكَذِّبُ بِهَـٰذَا الْحَدِيثِ ۖ سَنَسْتَدْرِجُهُم مِّنْ حَيْثُ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ 44

So leave Me, with [the matter of] whoever denies this Happenings. We will progressively lead them [to punishment] from where they do not know.

وَأُمْلِي لَهُمْ ۚ إِنَّ كَيْدِي مَتِينٌ 45

And I will give them time. Indeed, My plan is firm.

أَمْ تَسْأَلُهُمْ أَجْرًا فَهُم مِّن مَّغْرَمٍ مُّثْقَلُونَ 46

Or do you ask for them a compensation ? So they should discharge what was preponderance

 أَمْ عِندَهُمُ الْغَيْبُ فَهُمْ يَكْتُبُونَ 47

Or the unseen is deviating them so they want to document it (by insuring the future)

فَاصْبِرْ لِحُكْمِ رَبِّكَ وَلَا تَكُن كَصَاحِبِ الْحُوتِ إِذْ نَادَىٰ وَهُوَ مَكْظُومٌ 48

Then be patient for the instruction of your Consciousness, and be not like the owner of the temptation/enticement when his inner called while he was repressed.

لَّوْلَا أَن تَدَارَكَهُ نِعْمَةٌ مِّن رَّبِّهِ لَنُبِذَ بِالْعَرَاءِ وَهُوَ مَذْمُومٌ 49

If not that a favor from his Consciousness overtook him, surely he would have been laid exposed while he faced condemnation/criticism.

فَاجْتَبَاهُ رَبُّهُ فَجَعَلَهُ مِنَ الصَّالِحِينَ 50

But his consciousness chose him and made him among the righteous.

وَإِن يَكَادُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لَيُزْلِقُونَكَ بِأَبْصَارِهِمْ لَمَّا سَمِعُوا الذِّكْرَ وَيَقُولُونَ إِنَّهُ لَمَجْنُونٌ 51

And indeed, those who are ignorant would almost make you slip with their mental perception whatever version they listen, and say, "Indeed, he is self possessed."

وَمَا هُوَ إِلَّا ذِكْرٌ لِّلْعَالَمِينَ 52

But it is not except a reminder for all the knowledgeable.
