BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)

Result Of Opposite And Bigotry

Verse –90  of 286, Section – 11

Evil is that for which they sell their souls: that they should disbelieve in that which Allah hath revealed, grudging that Allah should reveal of His Bounty unto whom He will of His bondmen. They have incurred anger upon anger. And for disbelievers is a shameful doom. Bi’-sa-mash-taraw bihii ‘anfusahum ‘any-yakfuruu bi-maaa- ‘anzalallaahu bagyan ‘any-yunazzilal-laahu min- faz-lihii ‘alaa many-yashaaa-‘u min ‘ibaadih.  Fabaaa-‘uu  bigazabin ‘alaa gazab. Wa lil-Kaafiriina ‘azaabum-muhiin.


Allah Almighty commands in this verse that the children of Israel are limitless selfish and sensual people. They are also stubborn and jealous. They see every thing even that the orders of God Almighty from the business and national point of view and think that their benefit is either in following these orders or disobeying them. If they suppose that they will acquire their personal wishes by changing these orders or by violating them, they shall do that without hesitation.

Due to the result of bigotry and sensuality jealousy grew into them very severely. Because they wanted to get each type of favour and kind for themselves only as if it was their right by birth. Without distinction of deeds the favours and mercy of God Almighty will remain only for them.

When Prophet Muhammad (peace, grace and blessings be upon Him) was sent as the Last Messenger of Allah Almighty, the Jews felt a lot of restlessness. Fire of jealousy blazed into them that why the prophet-hood has been transferred into the children of Ishmael instead of their dynasty. Whereas they should know that the God Almighty gives His virtue him to whom He wishes and bestows Prophet-hood and Mission to him. But the Jews refused to believe the Last Messenger Muhammad (peace, grace and blessings upon Him) due to their opposite and did not return towards the right path.

Due to the Jews chained infidelity and denying they have incurred anger upon anger of God Almighty. And for disbelievers is a shameful doom on the Day of Resurrection.
