المنتقم

Al-Muntaqim:

The One Who takes revenge. Allah is the Avenger, the Lord of Retribution!!! Allah said in surah Aali-Imraan verses 3 and 4

(its English translation is):

3. He has sent down upon you, [O Muhammad], the Book in truth, confirming what was before it. And He revealed the Torah and the Gospel.

4. Then those who reject Faith in the Signs of Allah will suffer the severest penalty, and Allah is Exalted in Might, Lord of Retribution.

**************************************************************************************************

And Allah said in surah Al-Dukhaan (Ad-Dukhaan) verse 16 (Its English translation is):

16. The Day We will strike with the greatest assault, indeed, We will take retribution.
***********************************************************************************************

Although Allah Azza wa Jall is the Forgiving and Forbearing but the transgressive arrogant shouldn’t think that they can take advantage of these Attributes of Allah. They must also remember that Allah is the Lord of Retribution too. Usually, the oppressed Muslims become hasty and start wishing that Allah’s Punishment should catch the oppressors. But the Muslims note that they have to be extremely patient because it is up to Allah whether Allah All-Mighty punishes in this world or not and if yes then when will Allah catch the oppressors? All this authority lies with Allah and while wishing the punishment for others, we must pray for our own safety as Allah said in the surah Al-Ma’idah verse 95:


(5:95) Believers! Do not kill game while you are in the state of pilgrim sanctity.110 Whoever of you kills it willfully there shall be a recompense, the like of what he has killed in cattle – as shall be judged by two men of equity among you – to be brought to the Ka’bah as an offering, or as an expiation the feeding of the needy, or its equivalent in fasting111 in order that he may taste the grievousness of his deed. Allah has pardoned whatever has passed; but Allah will exact a penalty from him who repeats it. Allah is All-Mighty. He is fully capable of exacting penalties.
*************************************************************************

Exp. Note 110:

110. When a person is in the state of pilgrim sanctity (ihram) it is prohibited for him both to hunt and to assist in hunting animals. Indeed, even if an animal has been hunted for him by someone else he may not eat it. However, if someone hunts an animal for himself and makes a gift of it to such a person, there is no harm in his eating it. There is an exception to this injunction and that is with regard to harmful animals. Snakes, scorpions, mad dogs and other such animals which cause injury to man may be killed even by one in the state of ihram. (See Bukhari, ‘Talaq’, 24; ‘Sayd’, 2; Abu Da’ud, ‘Manasik’, 40, 41; Tirmidhi, ‘Hajj’, 27; ‘Sayd’, 26 – Ed.)

*************************************************************************

So we must pray for ourselves and for others, for an oppressor we must pray to Allah to guide him on the right path. But we shouldn’t become hopeless of Allah’s Justice. The real place for Allah’s Justice is the Here-After. There Allah shall judge every oppressor and punish him while Allah shall reward the oppressed one as Allah said in the surah Ibraheem verse 42 :

(Translation only)
42. And never think that Allah is unaware of what the wrongdoers do. He only delays them for a Day when eyes will stare [in horror].s
********************************************************************************************** 

The translation of the above verse ( i.e surah Ibraheem verse 42) is very clear. Allah Azza wa Jall gives them more and more time to think, reflect and repent from his unjust actions. In case he/she is heedless then they shall suffer much more severe punishment. May Allah protect us. May Allah make us just and kind to people and make us from those who do tawbah (repent) to Allah again and again, aameen. May Allah make us the dwellers of Paradise, aameen. Truly, that shall be a great success.

Allah is the Lord of Retribution

It is important to give some examples of the Retribution of Allah Azza wa Jall for the explanation of this Attribute of Allah. This is true that the Here-After is the place for passing judgment and exacting Retribution. But it doesn’t mean that in this world the transgressors are left free to make corruption as much as they want. In the past many nations were killed when their transgression crossed the limits. The Holy Quraan is full of the stories of such arrogant, disobedient nations. Here are some examples of the past and present times.


The nation of Sabt:

For the nation of Musa alaihi salaam Saturday was a holiday like Jumah (Friday) is for us. They were ordered to worship Allah on that day and were especially prohibited from fishing. One tribe of that ummah would not stop from fishing on Saturday. So Allah All-Mighty changed them into apes!!! The verses 65 and 66 of the surah Al-Baqarah shortly mention the Retribution. Here is the English translation of Al-Baqarah 65—66:

65. And indeed you knew those amongst you who transgressed in the matter of the Sabbath (i.e. Saturday). We said to them: “Be you monkeys, despised and rejected.”

66. And We made it an example to their own and to succeeding generations, and an admonition to the Allah-fearing.
************************************************************************************************

For more detail you can see surah Al-A’raaf verses 163—-16

The homosexual nation of the prophet Lut (Loot) alaihi salaam: 

The prophet Loot alaihi salaam was sent to preach to that nation. Finally they were killed by stony wrath. You can see the story of that nation in the surah Hood (Hud), surah Al-A’raaf, surah Ash-Shu’araa and others.

That stony wrath was for Retribution from the homosexuals of the past. 
At the present time there are many homo-gays parties in many nations. Allah Azza wa jall said in the surah Hud (Hood) verse 82—83:

82. When Our Decree issued, We turned (the cities) upside down, and rained down on them brimstones hard as baked clay, spread, layer on layer,-

83. Marked with fire in the providence of thy Lord (for the destruction of the wicked). And they are never far from the wrong-doers.
**************************************************************************************************

So in the verse 83 there is a terrible warning to the homosexual/gays of the present time. This warning also came in the Hadeeth of the Final Prophet Muhammad (Allah’s Peace and Blessings be upon him) as He informed us that stony wrath will come on the homosexuals. In another Hadeeth I read that the skulls of the homosexuals will be broken with the iron-stones that will come from the stars. (Allah knows best).
*************************************************************************

The meteor shower of the present time is also a warning of the stony wrath. When Allah Almighty wants, HE will bring down the stones on the criminals. So all of the mankind must fear Allah, stop from the sins and seek the refuge of Allah from HIS Retribution!!! Everyone must know that the killing and destruction by Allah’s wrath in this world doesn’t mean the end. Rather it means the everlasting severe punishment for the criminals in the Here-After too.

Sinking of Qaaroon in the earth:

He was from the cousins /relatives of Musa alaihi salaam but was on the side of Pharaoh. He (Qaaroon) was very rich and didn’t pay the obligatory charity. He also used to give hard time to Musa alaihi salaam. So Allah caught him and made him sink alive into the earth.

In the present era many incidents of sinking in the earth happened!!! In America one man sank in the earth along with his TV set. Even more sinking will happen according to Hadeeth Shareef and sinking at three places is from the Major signs of the Day of Resurrection.


Fir’on (Pharaoh) drowned in the sea/ocean along with his chiefs and army and their bodies are preserved in the Pyramids of Egypt to warn the Pharaoh- like chiefs at all times to come!!!
We must do a lot of astaghfar and pray to Allah to protect us from Allah’s Anger which may come any time.

The Prophet Muhammad (Allah’s Peace and Blessings be upon him) has informed us about the wraths of Khasaf (sinking in the earth), Masakh (changing into apes and pigs), Qadhaf (Killer wrath of stones) and many other signs that will appear like a neckless of beads breaks and then the beads fall down and cannot be controlled. So many wraths of Allah will come and no one will be able to control them!!! Now the world is full of killing of the innocent people. There are extensive injustices.
May Allah protect us at this time when fitan (tribulations) have increased a lot and Allah’s Retribution /Wrath may come at any place/time/person!!!
