Surah No. 100

وَمَنْ يَّرْغَبُ عَنْ مِّلَّةِ اِبْرٰھٖمَ اِلَّا مَنْ سَفِهَ نَفْسَهٗ ۭ وَلَقَدِ اصْطَفَيْنٰهُ فِي الدُّنْيَا ۚ وَاِنَّهٗ فِي الْاٰخِرَةِ لَمِنَ الصّٰلِحِيْنَ

The first placement of the root word وَاِنَّهٗ is in Verse No. 130 Surah No. 02: And who would reject the faith of Abraham except a fool! We certainly chose him in this life, and in the Hereafter he will surely be among the righteous.

وَاِنَّهٗ لِحُبِّ الْخَيْرِ لَشَدِيْدٌ

The last placement of the root word وَاِنَّهٗ is in Verse No. 08 Surah No. 100: And indeed he is, in love of wealth, intense.


وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَنْ يَّتَّخِذُ مِنْ دُوْنِ اللّٰهِ اَنْدَادًا يُّحِبُّوْنَهُمْ كَحُبِّ اللّٰهِ ۭ وَالَّذِيْنَ اٰمَنُوْٓا اَشَدُّ حُبًّا لِّلّٰهِ ۭ وَلَوْ يَرَى الَّذِيْنَ ظَلَمُوْٓا اِذْ يَرَوْنَ الْعَذَابَ ۙ اَنَّ الْقُوَّةَ لِلّٰهِ جَمِيْعًا ۙ وَّاَنَّ اللّٰهَ شَدِيْدُ الْعَذَابِ

The first placement of the root word لِحُبِّ is in Verse No. 165 Surah No. 02:And [yet], among the people are those who take other than Allah as equals [to Him]. They love them as they [should] love Allah . But those who believe are stronger in love for Allah . And if only they who have wronged would consider [that] when they see the punishment, [they will be certain] that all power belongs to Allah and that Allah is severe in punishment.

Who are those people who love someone else more than than Allah . What are the major signs to recognize those who were involved in love other than Allah.

وَاِنَّهٗ لِحُبِّ الْخَيْرِ لَشَدِيْدٌ

So the last placement of the root word لِحُبِّ is in Verse No. 08 Surah No. 100 describes them as And indeed he is, in love of wealth, intense.


Those were engaged in that intense love Allah Subhan O Talah is describing their hearts as stiff as stones. However in comparison He is also adding some exception amongst them.

ثُمَّ قَسَتْ قُلُوْبُكُمْ مِّنْۢ بَعْدِ ذٰلِكَ فَهِىَ كَالْحِجَارَةِ اَوْ اَشَدُّ قَسْوَةً ۭ وَاِنَّ مِنَ الْحِجَارَةِ لَمَا يَتَفَجَّرُ مِنْهُ الْاَنْهٰرُ ۭ وَاِنَّ مِنْهَا لَمَا يَشَّقَّقُ فَيَخْرُجُ مِنْهُ الْمَاۗءُ ۭ وَاِنَّ مِنْهَا لَمَا يَهْبِطُ مِنْ خَشْـيَةِ اللّٰهِ ۭ وَمَا اللّٰهُ بِغَافِلٍ عَمَّا تَعْمَلُوْنَ

The first placement of the root word لَشَدِيْدٌ is in Verse No. 74 Surah No. 02 :Then your hearts became hardened after that, being like stones or even harder. For indeed, there are stones from which rivers burst forth, and there are some of them that split open and water comes out, and there are some of them that fall down for fear of Allah . And Allah is not unaware of what you do.

And if they would not return to Allah Subhan O Talah their personality status would be like.

وَاِنَّهٗ لِحُبِّ الْخَيْرِ لَشَدِيْدٌ

So the last placement of the root word لِحُبِّ is in Verse No. 08 Surah No. 100 describes them as And indeed he is, in love of wealth, intense.
