In Surah Hud (11:112), Allah, Al-Basir (The All-Seeing), commands Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family, along with those believers who turn in repentance (taba) with him, to stand firm and steadfast in the propagation and guidance, in the battles, in carrying out Allah’s orders and implementing the Holy Qur’an’s instructions. The root word of Allah’s command to stand firm, steadfast and upright (is’taqim) can be seen in other Words of our Lord, such as Qiyamat (Day of Resurrection), iqamah (establish), qiyam (stand), mustaqeem (straight) and al-qawma (the people). Allah, Al-Azim (The Magnificent), continues the ayat (verse) by telling the Prophet and us not to transgress from the Path of Islam and that our Lord sees everything we do. It is a severe ayat with heavy duties. To be successful, we must be persistent, sincere, non-violent leaders and abstain from unruliness and sin. It has been reported that the Prophet, peace be upon him and his family, said that this surah (chapter) and Surah al-Waqi’ah caused him to age early.
