Warning from Allah is in the Quran. Allah is one, unique and infinite being. And man is his most beloved creation. He has repeatedly instructed people to beware of Satan. The Qur’an is Allah book. In this book, Allah warns people about this world and the Hereafter.
It has been called to have trustworthy and sincere believers in the words of the Holy Quran. Nevertheless, if one engages in new activities in an imaginative way, the consequences will be terrible. Here is a warning about this terrible consequence. Allah the Almighty has sent the Prophet (peace be upon him) to the earth as a warner. He has warned people through him. Allah says: “You are only a warner. We sent you with the truth; a bearer of good news, and a warner. There is no community but a warner has passed through it.“ [ Fatir 23-24]
In another verse with the same meaning, Allah the Almighty says: ‘Say, I am not a new messenger. I don’t know what will happen to you and me. I only follow what is revealed to me. I am only a clear warner. ‘ [AL- Ahqaf 9]
Also, Allah said: ‘O Prophet! We have sent you as a witness, as a bearer of glad tidings, and as a warner, and as a caller to Allah by His command, and as a shining lamp. Give glad tidings to the Muslims that they have a great favor from Allah. Do not obey the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and ignore their persecution, and put your trust in Allah. ALLAH suffices as an executor. ‘ [Al-Ahzab 45-48]
The same thing has been narrated: ‘Say: I am only a warner, and there is no Allah but Allah, the Mighty, the Wise. He is the Lord of the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, the Mighty, the Forgiving. Say, this is great news’. [sura sad 65-67]
Allah, the Most Merciful, warns people to protect themselves from Satan’s influence and domination and says: ‘Tell My servants to say what is best. Satan causes conflict between them. Surely Satan is the open enemy of man. [Israel 53]
Allah the Almighty further says: ‘If you feel any conspiracy on the part of Satan, seek refuge in Allah. Surely He is the Hearing, the Knowing. [Surah Fussilat 36]
Humans and jinns have been created to worship Allah. Then through the prophets and messengers, their way of life and religious rules have been informed. There is no room for the human community to act contrary to these provisions given by Allah Himself. That is why Allah has repeatedly warned the human race with many warnings and their guide the Prophet (peace be upon him) has also been warned in favor of his Ummah. The above verses are clear proof of this. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) He has been declared as a direct warner by repeated revelations in the context of the immense responsibility placed on him. The Qur’an says to refrain from any kind of idea as an alternative to the existence of one and only Allah. There is also good news for the Muslims who properly evaluate this warning to be on the side of Allah and to reject the infidels and hypocrites who devalue it. Then came the detailed revelation to beware of Satan, the perpetrator of all evil deeds. Satan can mislead a weak servant in any situation and even try to attack a strong servant. In this situation, one has to seek refuge in Allah or surrender to Allah.
On the other hand, the words and philosophy of the Prophet (peace be upon him) should be followed in the same way for the whole world. That is, besides the commands, instructions, and warnings of Allah, the commands, instructions, and warnings of the Prophet (peace be upon him) must also be properly evaluated. Otherwise, all the good deeds in our life will be in vain. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “I have sent you (the Messenger) as a bearer of good news, a bearer of glad tidings and a warner. That you may believe in Allah and His Messenger, and honor him and help him, and glorify Allah morning and evening. ‘ [Al Fath 8-9]
The consequences of disbelief in Allah and His Messenger are terrible. Those who disbelieve will be thrown into Hell. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “And those who do not believe in Allaah and His Messenger, We have prepared a blazing Fire for the disbelievers. To Allah belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. He forgives whom He wills and punishes whom He wills. He is the Forgiving, the Most Merciful. ‘ [Al Fath 13-14]
The consequences of disobedience to Allah and His Messenger are not good; ALLAH calls them astray. Allaah says ( interpretation of the meaning): “When Allaah and His Messenger order a deed, no believing man or believing woman has the power to decide otherwise. Whoever disobeys ALLAH and His messenger has gone astray. ‘ [Al-Ahzab 36]
According to the interpretation and meaning of the Holy Qur’an, it is clearly proven that the right of the Prophet (peace be upon him) over everyone in the ummah, men and women, is paramount. Allah Almighty Himself has commanded in His Word to obey His command as well as His command. Then those who disobey him and the Messenger or disbelieve in them, their terrible consequences are also mentioned in the above verse. But no believing man or believing woman disagrees with the command of Allah and His Messenger. Only unbelievers fall into depravity. It is narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) that he said: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said:’All of my ummah will enter Paradise, except those who disbelieve. The Sahabis asked, O Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him)! Who denies? He said, “Whoever obeys my religion will enter Paradise, and whoever disobeys me will be denied.” [Bukhari H/ 7280]
In another hadith, it is narrated on the authority of ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: The sentence is one, and I said the second. He said that a person who dies believing that he is equal to Allah will enter the Fire (Hell). And I have said, “Whoever denies the existence of Allah and dies, he will enter Paradise.” [Bukhari]
The Holy Qur’an is the last divine book that was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) by Allah Almighty. And the hadith is the description of Muhammad (peace be upon him) and the real form of his statement or the Qur’an. The above two hadiths of Sahih Bukhari are proofs of the direct and indirect warnings of the Prophet (peace be upon him). It is pertinent to note that all the hadiths of the Prophet (peace be upon him) have been preserved. Therefore, the aims and objectives of both the Holy Qur’an and the Hadith are one and the same. There are many more verses in support of these hadiths.
If the Hereafter is proved false, then all deeds will be nullified. In this regard, Allah warns the people: “Those who denied Our signs and the meeting of the Hereafter – their deeds have become worthless. Are they recompensed except for what they used to do?“‘. [A’raf 147]
Also, Allah says: “Who does greater wrong than someone who fabricates lies about Allah, or denies His revelations? The guilty will never prosper.[“Yunus 17]
Allaah said to His beloved Habib (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): ‘Tell My slaves that I am the Most Forgiving, the Most Merciful and that My punishment is a painful punishment.’ [Hijrah 49-50]
In all these verses there is a warning from Allah.
Satan tries to lead him astray if he is indifferent to the remembrance of Allah. In this connection, Allah the Almighty says: “Whoever turns his eyes away from the remembrance of Allah, the Merciful, I appoint for him a devil, then he becomes his companion. ” [Zukhruf 36]
This unimaginable message of the Holy Qur’an, on the one hand, calls for humanity to be immersed in the remembrance of Allah, and on the other hand, it also gives the solemn initiation of caution. Therefore, just as the remembrance of Allah is essential for the protection of the best religion, Islam so is it necessary to follow the warning of Allah. The effect of warning from Allah will be reflected in the moment of entering the hereafter after the end of this life. And it is possible for faithful servants to have a clear idea about this. Then the verses containing this warning have been added in the Holy Qur’an for the purpose of returning them to the path of goodness.
In fact, the main purpose of warning from Allah is to lead people to the path of liberation through correction. Allah the Almighty said: ‘My duty is to guide. And I am the Lord of this world and the Hereafter. So We have warned you of a blazing fire. Only the most unfortunate person will enter it, who denies and turns away. The Allah-fearing person will be kept away from this. He who spends his wealth for self-purification and has no recompense bounty on him, without seeking the pleasure of his Lord, will be satisfied. ‘ [Al-Layl 12-21]
In the above verses, the fear of Hell has been shown for the criminals. On the other hand, those who fear Allah and seek the pleasure of Allah have been given complete fear.
The invaluable words and hadiths of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) have been preserved separately in the hadith books. As the warnings of the Holy Quran, there are many warnings in the Hadith books. For example, a hadith is presented: It is narrated on the authority of Hudhayfah ibn Yaman (R), He said that people used to ask the Prophet (peace be upon him) about good things. And I used to ask about bad things, for fear of falling into it. So I asked, O Messenger of Allah! We were in stupidity and misery. Then Allah has given us this good (faith), but after this goodwill evil (happen) again? He said yes. I said, will the welfare come again even after that misfortune? He said yes he will come. However, it will be smoky (unadulterated). I asked, what is the meaning of dukhan (smoke)? He said, “People will follow a path other than mine.” You will see for them the good and the bad. I said, then after this good or bad will come again? He said yes he will come. That is, there will be some callers to Hell, and those who respond to their call will be thrown into Hell. I said, O Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him)! Let us know their identity. He said they would be like us and speak like us. I said, what do you instruct me when I reach that state? (What should I do)? He said, then the Jamaat of the Muslims and the Imam of the Muslims must be held. I said, what if there was no Muslim organization and no Muslim Imam at that time (then what should we do)? He said, “Even if it contains the root of the tree, it will continue to abandon the group.” Even in this state your death will come while you will remain in that state If there is no Muslim organization and no Muslim Imam at that time (then what should we do)? He said, “Even if it contains the root of the tree, it will continue to abandon the group.” Even in this state your death will come while you will remain in that state If there is no Muslim organization and no Muslim Imam at that time (then what should we do)? He said, “Even if it contains the root of the tree, it will continue to abandon the group.” Even in this state your death will come while you will remain in that state [Muttafaq alaih, Mishkat H / 5362]
The necessity of the warning of the Prophet (peace be upon him) as well as the warning of Allah towards the servant has become clear in the above discussion. The warning of Allah can be called a direct declaration and the warning of the Prophet (peace be upon him) can be called an indirect declaration. However, the aims and objectives of both warnings are one and the same. Therefore, we will stabilize our future course of action by combining the command of one Allah and the words of the Prophet (peace be upon him) who carried it out. May Allah grant us Tawfiq.
