Victory for the Righteous (3:137 – 3:141)

Victory for the Righteous

[3:137] Precedents have been set for you in the past; roam the earth and note the consequences for the unbelievers.
[3:138] This is a proclamation for the people, and a guidance and enlightenment for the righteous.
[3:139] You shall not waver, nor shall you grieve, for you are the ultimate victors, if you are believers.
[3:140] If you suffer hardship, the enemy also suffers the same hardship. We alternate the days of victory and defeat among the people. GOD thus distinguishes the true believers, and blesses some of you with martyrdom. GOD dislikes injustice.
[3:141] GOD thus toughens those who believe and humiliates the disbelievers.

[3:179] GOD is not to leave the believers as you are, without distinguishing the bad from the good. Nor does GOD inform you of the future, but GOD bestows such knowledge upon whomever He chooses from among His messengers.* Therefore, you shall believe in GOD and His messengers. If you believe and lead a righteous life, you receive a great recompense.

Boiling Water

Post Traumatic Stress vs. Post Traumatic Growth

God is the one who distinguishes the good from the bad. A true believer is compassionate. If we are constantly looking to find the flaws of others to label people as hypocrites or disbelievers we lose our compassion.

How are the disbelievers humiliated?

Humiliation comes becomes they made a claim, but failed to live up to their claims.

Humiliation will come on the day of Resurrection as a result of disbelieving. They will be in shame on that day when they realize that they wasted their entire life.
