Example of those who do not fulfill the rights of Allah’s Book.
People before us were given a Book! About them, Allah says that their example is:
... كمثل الحمار يحمل أسفارًا .
“ that of a donkey which carries books” (62:5)
i.e., they did not fulfill its rights (Believe, Recite, Understand, Implement, Propagate). That is why they are like donkeys.
Allah is not joking (astaghfirullah).
He is extremely angry with those who did not value the Book
Allah does not have any special relationship with us either.
If we do not fulfill the rights of Qur’an, we will not be better than donkeys in His sight. It is as simple as that.
Don’t start counting the donkeys among people. Beware! Allah is angry here (astaghfirullah).
THE OBJECTIVE OF GIVING THIS EXAMPLE IS TO ASK: Am I a donkey in the sight of Allah (astaghfirullah) .
APPLY THE FORMULA: Ask-evaluate-plan-propagate.
And if I say that I don’t have time to recite, study, understand, implement, propagate… then am I not insisting to remain a donkey (even after knowing) ???
