  • Quran 18:104 – How To Ensure Right Path

    Posted by Rafi Sheikh on October 7, 2022 at 5:18 am

    ٱلَّذِینَ ضَلَّ سَعۡیُهُمۡ فِی ٱلۡحَیَوٰةِ ٱلدُّنۡیَا وَهُمۡ یَحۡسَبُونَ أَنَّهُمۡ یُحۡسِنُونَ صُنۡعًا﴿ ١٠٤ ﴾

    • ابوالاعلی مودودی:

    وہ کہ دنیا کہ زندگی میں جن کی ساری سعی و جہد راہِ راست سے بھٹکی رہی اور وہ سمجھتے رہے کہ وہ سب کچھ ٹھیک کر رہے ہیں

    Al-Kahf, Ayah 104

    As a muslim how do we know if we are on the right path? How do we course correct?

    When seen from verses 103-108 [1], it becomes clear that these verses are a comparison of believers with non-believers (who rejected the messenger and his message in this world).

    Regarding “the right path“, please refer to the video below from 31:26 to 35:48



    قُلْ هَلْ نُنَبِّئُكُمْ بِالْأَخْسَرِيْنَ أَعْمَالًا. اَلَّذِيْنَ ضَلَّ سَعْيُهُمْ فِی الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَهُمْ يَحْسَبُونَ أَنَّهُمْ يُحْسِنُوْنَ صُنْعًا. أُولَئِكَ الَّذِيْنَ كَفَرُوْا بِآيَاتِ رَبِّهِمْ وَلِقَآئِهِ فَحَبِطَتْ أَعْمَالُهُمْ فَلَا نُقِيْمُ لَهُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ وَزْنًا. ذَلِكَ جَزَاؤُهُمْ جَهَنَّمُ بِمَا كَفَرُوا وَاتَّخَذُوْا آيَاتِیْ وَرُسُلِیْ هُزُوًا.

    إِنَّ الَّذِيْنَ آمَنُوْا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ كَانَتْ لَهُمْ جَنَّاتُ الْفِرْدَوْسِ نُزُلًا. خَالِدِيْنَ فِيْهَا لَا يَبْغُوْنَ عَنْهَا حِوَلًا .

    Tell them: “Should We inform you who the greatest losers are with regard to deeds? They all of whose efforts were wasted in the life of the world while they thought that they were doing very noble deeds. It is these people who denied their Lords revelations as well as meeting Him. So, their deeds went waste. Now on the Day of Judgment We will not give them any weight. Their reward is this Hell because they have denied it and made fun of My revelations and My messengers. However, those who have accepted faith and did righteous deeds, for them is the hospitality of the orchards of Paradise. They will abide in it forever; they will never want to leave them. (Quran 18:103-108)
