Dr. A. R. Khalid’s articles about Syed Sarfraz A. Shah Sahib. Dr. Sahib mentioned many events and a meeting of Intellectuals and Journalists with Shah Sahib about Future of Pakistan, Although he doesn’t give much details of that meeting, but he summarized that meeting in title of these articles (لا تَقْنَطُوا مِن رَّحْمَةِ اللَّهِ).
Lets first read this From Quran Pak. This Ayat tells us that we should never give up hope in Allah’s mercy as it is mentioned in Quran: Para 24.
Para 24: Faman Azlam, Surah Al-Zumar (39), Ayat No. 53 (لا تَقْنَطُوا underlined)
Iblees (Shaitan) wants to remain disappointed and says ‘Taqnatu’ its better for him because due to his hopelessness, his plans are working fine. (It is opposite to what Allah is saying in Quran)
What suits him best, ‘Give up hope’ or Don’t give up hope!
For Iblees (Satan) ‘Taqnatu’ (Give up hope) may suits but, A Momin always believes in ‘La Taqnatu’ (Don’t give up hope).
