Rabbana Dua 14

Bismillah

Transliteration
Rabbana innaka man tudkhili annarafaqad akhzaytahu wama liththalimeenamin ansar.

Translation
Our Lord, indeed whoever You admit to the Fire – You have disgraced him, and for the wrongdoers there are no helpers.

Audio – Reciter (Saad Al Ghamadi)

Explanation
This is the second supplication contained within the concluding verses of Surat ‘Āli `Imrān. It is a continuation of the discourse that started in Rabbana Dua 13. Please refer to the earlier supplication for the context and significance of these verses.

The people of insight contemplate the signs in the heavens and the earth and they catch a glimpse of the Majesty of Allah subhanawatala and they are humbled and awed by it. This awareness compels them towards obedience because gratitude without obedience is a sham. They recognize the enormity of the crime of disobedience and are gripped with the fear of being flung into the fire. They are not like the casual believers of this Ummah that sin without a second thought because they believe prime real estate in Jannat has been set aside for them.

Earlier they asked, “…protect us from the punishment of the Fire” and here they elaborate upon it. The Day of Judgment will be a day of public humiliation for those that did zulm. Linguistically ‘zulm’ means ‘to place something out of its proper place.’ ‘Zalama’ refers to, ‘injustice, darkness, aggression, doing the inappropriate and preventing a right etc.’ Allah subhanawatala informs us of how Luqman advised his son, ‘inna ashshirka lathulmunAAatheem.’

And [mention, O Muhammad], when Luqman said to his son while he was instructing him, “O my son, do not associate [anything] with Allah. Indeed, association [with him] is great injustice.”
{Surat Luqman 31:Verse 13}

The oppressors, big and small, that escaped punishment in this world or did not receive their due recompense will be dragged before the whole of humanity and disgraced. The public nature of it will add another dimension to the intensity of the punishment. They are not merely cast into the Hellfire; rather they are dragged in front of everyone in humiliation and disgrace. No one comes to their aid. No one objects. No one pleads on their behalf. No one offers to bribe the angels or find a ‘connection’ that will save them. No family member, no friend, no colleague offers to take their place. It is a moment of utter loss and hopelessness for them where those they cared for and served stand as silent spectators to their misery. 

Just as the pleasures of Paradise are beyond our imagination, the horrors of hell are too terrifying to envision. The mere description of hellfire makes ones hair stand on edge. In Surat Anbiya, Allah subhanawatala gives us a description of how people will respond when they are exposed simply to a whiff of a ‘cool breeze’ from Hell.

And if [as much as] a whiff of the punishment of your Lord should touch them, they would surely say, “O woe to us! Indeed, we have been wrongdoers.”
{Surat Anbiya 21: Verse 46}

Reflection

  • People usually shy away from mentions of Hell. “It is depressing thinking about it,” they say. To avoid thinking about death, the Day of Judgment and Hell is like a student who has a test but refuses to study for it because it stresses him out. The logical, reasonable course of action would be to realize that death is imminent, the Day of Judgment is certain and Hell is already fuming in fury and the angels are reining it in. Shouldn’t you and I be a little worried about it?
  •  Do not spend your life desiring to please others. In every act endeavor to please only Allah subhanawatala because on the brink of Hell no one will move a finger to save you.

“…Our Lord, You did not create this aimlessly; exalted are You [above such a thing]; then protect us from the punishment of the Fire. Our Lord, indeed whoever You admit to the Fire – You have disgraced him, and for the wrongdoers there are no helpers.”
{Surat ‘Āli `Imrān 3: Verse 191-192}

Please memorize this Rabbana dua and share it with your friends and family.
