LESSON # 161 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)
Accursed By Allah
Verse –159 of 286, Section – 19 (Part 2)
Lo! Those who hide the proofs and the guidance which We revealed, after We had made it clear to mankind in the Scripture: such are accursed of Allah and accursed of those who have the power to curse-
‘Innallaziina yaktumuuna maaa ‘anzalnaa minal-bayyi-naati wal-hudaa mim- ba’-di maa bayyan-naahu linnaasi fil-Kitaabi, ‘ulaaa-‘ika yal-anu-humullaahu wa yal-‘anu-humul-laa-‘inuun.
‘Innallaziina yaktumuuna – (Those persons who hide) this word has come out from the word kat-maan, that means to hide anything intentionally and where it is necessary to disclose, it is not disclosed there. It is signified towards the people of Scripture and all those persons who do so.
Al-bayyi-naatu – (the proofs, clear orders) it means those signs and orders which are clear and splendid themselves. Moreover bayyi-naat also means the proofs of the prophet-hood of Muhammad (glory, grace, blessings and peace be upon Him).
Al-laa-‘inuun – (The persons who have the power to curse) its matter is la’an and single laa-‘in. La’-nat means curse, reproof and reproached. According to the phrase of Divine Law of Religion it signifies the person who is deprived from the Mercy of Allah Almighty, away from the Kindness of God Almighty.
We have read in the previous lessons that the human beings should grow into them superior qualities and the best morality. They should remain busy in the worship of God Almighty and recitation, and preach the others to choose the straight path, not to get rid of the patience during troubles, calamities and difficulties, use the blessings and favors of God Almighty correctly on proper places and should not be ungrateful to Him.
In this verse it has been discussed that the persons who will hide the proofs and the guidance which the God Almighty revealed, will not preach the others, will tell the people false and self made manners, hide the foretelling and proofs mentioned in the Heavenly Books (Scriptures) about the Last Messenger Muhammad (glory, grace, blessings and peace be upon Him), such people are accursed of Allah Almighty and accursed of those people who have the power to curse. Like these people go away from the Mercy and Kindness of the God Almighty, because whenever the misfortune is revealed due to hide the Truth then other creature also falls in its whirlpool.
