3- Al-istiaada (الإستعاذة): say "I seek refuge with Allah from the banished Satan"

 

By evoking the notion of justice (on The Earth) at the end of the previous section, we wondered why Allah asks us to avoid the bad before doing the good for the same subject?

  • "That you not transgress within the balance""and do not make deficient the balance."                
  • "And establish weight in justice"

Isn't it enough, for example, to establish justice so that injustice does not infiltrate our relationships?

We believe that Allah's message to us is that in order for the good to spread properly, the bad must not disturb it.


As the verses of the Quran complement each other*, adding new informations, we find the same message in:

     
So when you recite the Quran, [first] seek refuge with Allah from the banished Satan   فَإِذَا قَرَأْتَ الْقُرْآنَ فَاسْتَعِذْ بِاللَّهِ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيمِ 
Indeed, there is for him no authority over those who have believed and rely upon their Lord.   إِنَّهُ لَيْسَ لَهُ سُلْطَانٌ عَلَى الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَلَى رَبِّهِمْ يَتَوَكَّلُونَ
His authority is only over those who take him as an ally and those who through him associate others with Allah.   إِنَّمَا سُلْطَانُهُ عَلَى الَّذِينَ يَتَوَلَّوْنَهُ وَالَّذِينَ هُم بِهِ مُشْرِكُونَ

 Sorat An-Nahl ( The Bees chapter) : 100 << 98 :  سورة النحل

 

We ask Allah to protect us from some excesses (such as arrogance, hypocrisy or any form of association) even before hoping to get benefits of His speech.


As we are preparing to approach the Quran with humility under its 2 types of truth (scientific and believe) we "seek refuge with Allah from the banished Satan" for making this modest work far from bad influences and close to His Benevolence.

 

 

* Which constitutes another level of interaction of the Quran that we must be very vigilant.
