Explanation Or Tafseer Of Surah An-Naas
I seek refuge in the Lord of all peoples. Tafseer Sirat-al-Janan states that Allah is the Lord of all creatures, but since man is the noblest of creatures, he specifically mentions that the greatness and dignity of man also show the greatness and dignity of man. The scholars have made the point here that in this case, the word al-Naas occurs five times. The wisdom in this is that man is only brought up in childhood.
- Therefore, first of all, he mentioned the attribute of the Lord of the people.
- That a person becomes intoxicated in his youth and goes astray, then he needs a legal arrest, so here is the king of the people.
- And because in old age man becomes engaged in worship, Therefore, in the third place, the attribute of God Almighty is mention, that is, Malik-e-Naas
- And in the fourth place, the people may mean the righteous, that Satan usually tries to turn them away from worship through whispers.
- And in the fifth place, the people may mean the wicked and mischievous people who have sought refuge from their evil.
King of all people, It is in the Tafseer, that is, it is the one who arranges their deeds, And the real ruler and master of all are that whoever gets government and property in the world, he gets it from his gift.
The God of all people is in Tafseer Sirat al-Janan, There is only one God, and that is the true God of all people, The commentary is in Sirat al-Janan. It refers to the great devil and his habit. When a man is heedless, he whispers in his heart. And when man remembers Allah, Satan stays away and goes away.
The difference between whispering and inspiration
Remember that bad thoughts are called whispers, while good thoughts are inspiring and whisper by Satan. Therefore, it should recite La Hawl Wala Qawwata and the inspiration is from Allah Almighty through an angel, so one should give thanks to Allah Almighty for it.
Whispers are more prevalent in the dominance of Nafs Amara, while inspiration is more in the domination of Nafs Mutmina.
