LESSON # 34 HOLY QUR’AAN
BAQARAH – 2
Outcome Of The Hypocrites
Verse – 18 of 286, section -2
and they return not.
18. Summum- bukmun ‘umyun fahum laa yarji-‘uun.
Summun – (Deaf; hard of hearing; inattentive). Although the Hypocrites
apparently were not deaf but they were called deaf because they did not listen
true advices of Islam and rejected them. They listened and show that they have
not listened as if they were deaf and did not listen.
Bukmun – (Dumb; speechless; mute). Even they had tongues but turned
away asking the true advices and did not accept the Truth as though they were dumb and had not tongue in their mouths.
Umyun – (Blind; unable to see) (plural of Aa’ma). It means blind persons. They were called blind because having their eye-sights they had seen the signs of Allah but didn’t accept.
In this verse outcome of deeds of the hypocrites is being explained.
As after appearing the light of Islam they still adopted the darkness of infidelity. Due to worldly advantages, personal means and carnal desires they didn’t distinguish between good and bad. As according to the natural rule, if the hand is put in fire it burns, similarly because of their perversity and intentionally depravity, their all forces of recognizing the Truth were lost. Infidelity came over them. They lost the Light of Islam. Allah plundered
their Light because of their evil deeds and they went astray in darkness.
It was the result of not distinguishing between good and bad that having ears they could not listen to the sounds of Truth. Their tongues became dumb due to not asking the right path from anyone. Their eyes became blind due to not seeing the light of Islam. And signs of Allah didn’t affect them.
Openly there are three ways to get knowledge: ear, tongue and eye. Sometime a man gets knowledge by listening, Sometime by asking from someone and sometimes by looking other things by his eyes. But a hypocrite loses his all these three powers due to his revengefulness and haughtiness. And now neither he listens to the sound of any guide, nor asks true knowledge and nor gets any affect seeing signs of the Truth. And now there is no hope of his returning from infidelity to Islam or from darkness to light.
