Following Our Parents Blindly A Great Human Tragedy
[11:109] Do not have any doubt regarding what these people worship; they worship exactly as they found their parents worshiping. We will requite them their due share fully, without reduction.
[11:110] We have given Moses the scripture, but it was disputed, and if it were not for a predetermined word decreed by your Lord, they would have been judged immediately. They are full of doubt about this, suspicious.
[11:111] Your Lord will surely recompense everyone for their works. He is fully Cognizant of everything they do.
[11:112] Therefore, continue on the path you have been enjoined to follow, together with those who repented with you, and do not transgress. He is Seer of everything you do.
[11:113] Do not lean towards those who have transgressed, lest you incur Hell, and find no allies to help you against GOD, then end up losers.
Have to go against the grain – don’t just believe all information that is given to you. Just taking information from anyone parent, leader, peer without questioning it is equivalent to following parents blindly – only one not to be questioned is God.
