Verse 24:55 of the Quran is so powerful.It has a beautiful promise from Allah azzawajal.It also shows the believers the way for establishing their authority on Earth.How can Islam be a dominant belief system on Earth?
Commentary Yusuf Ali:
Three things are promised here, to those who have Faith and obey Allah’s Law: (1) that they will inherit power and authority on the land, not for any selfish purposes of theirs by way of favouritism, but in order that they may maintain Allah’s Law; (2) that the Religion of Right, which Allah has chosen for them, will be openly established, and will suppress all wrong and oppression; (3) that the righteous will live in peace and security, instead of having to suffer persecution, or leave their hearths and homes for the cause of Allah, or practise the rites of their Faith in secret. 3032 If this verse was revealed about the time of the Battle of the Ditch (al Khandaq), also called the Battle of the Confederates ( al Ahzab), A.H. 4-5, we can imagine the comfort it gave to the Muslims who were besieged in Madinah by a force ten times their number. The Muslims then lived in a state of great suspense and danger, and under arms for days on end. (See 33:9-20). The security and authority they were promised came to them subsequently in abundant measures. View full size (900x900) http://dlvr.it/6ZQJst
