Lesson 

 

It has been described in this verse that the nation like Muslims can not become disbeliever after having faith, because Messenger of Allah Almighty (of high dignity) is present between them, who causes to hear them the Word of Allah Almighty, which increases their Belief. He uses to recite the Revelations of Allah Almighty. It is the fact that the person, whosoever holds fast to Allah Almighty leaving entire other paths and whosoever places confidence and trust in Him heartily, no power can foil up or down him from the straight path.

 

The ancient lineages of Madinah had very severe enmity with each other before Islam. They used to decide on a war upon very ordinary matters and the bazaar of bloodshed used to be hot (angry). When the Last Messenger of Allah Almighty, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) migrated from Makkah to Madinah, then they were in luck. The enmity between the tribes, which had been running since hundreds of the years, changed in to friendship due to teachings of Islam and blessing of the company of Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). Moreover, very strong brotherly relations established between them.

 

The Jews of Madinah became very unpleasant due to like this meeting of these dynasties and families, and being collected together for the service and protection of Islam. They appointed a person, to make mention wherever the people of both the lineages assemble about “The War of Bu-‘aas” (which was fought between the two famous tribes). He began reading the poetry to remind about the war when he found opportunity to cause to hear the both parties. As soon as the people listened to this poetry, then with in no time a spark of anger was inflamed and both the tribes began to equip their weapons for the war. By chance Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) reached there with some companions (may Allah be pleased with them). He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) commanded, “O Muslims! Be frightened from Allah Almighty. I am in your midst, then how this uncivil calling out aloud? Allah Almighty guided you. Do you want to return from the light of guidance immediately after arriving, towards the darkness of ignorance”? As soon as they listened to the voice of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), then entire rings of the devil’s net broke one by one. All the people threw their weapons and began weeping and embracing each other. They all understood that it was their enemies’ mischievousness, from which they would have to be careful in future.

Advice Of Disbeliever Will Make You Disbeliever

LESSON # 395 FROM HOLY QUR’AN

Advice Of Disbeliever Will Make You Disbeliever

Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter – 3)

Verse –100 of 200, Section –10    (Part – 4)

 

O ye who believe! If ye obey a party of those who have received the Scripture they will make you disbelievers after your belief.          

Yaaa- ‘ayyuhal-laziina  ‘aa-manuuu  ‘in-  tutii-‘uu  fariiqam-minallaziina  ‘uutul-Kitaaba  ya-rudduukum-  ba’-da  ‘imaani-kum  kaafiriin.

Lesson 

 

The people of the Scripture were threatened in the previous verses, “It is not convenient for you that you use to mislead the people intentionally telling them fictitious faults regarding the religion of Islam, while open tokens and proofs in respect of the truth of Islam, Holy Qur’an and the Last Messenger, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) have been manifested upon you”.  

 

It is clear that the children of Israel used to bear malice willing or unwilling. They did not abstain after listening to the advice. Therefore, along with thus, the Muslims have also been advised, “You should not be taken in these mischievous persons. They will try to make you disbelievers with gaits of various sorts. If you will move on their suggestions and obey them, then you will throw yourselves into a state of anxiety that gradually you will fall again in the darkness of the infidelity, after coming out from the light of Belief, whence it is much difficult to come back afterwards.

 

ya-rudduukum – (they will make you disbelievers), origin of this word is Raddun and the word Murtad  has also come out from it. Hardest and severest punishment in Islam is for the Murtad, (the person, who turns away from Islam, is called Murtad). We cannot compel any person to accept Islam, but he cannot be forgiven who becomes Murtad (who turns away from Islam), because he falls in the well of darkness of the infidelity willfully and with knowledge.  

 

Several affairs manifest from this verse:

 

  • The people of the Scripture are extremely enemies of Islam and they try always that the Muslims would have turned from the religion Islam towards infidelity and belief in a plurality of God (polytheism). It is there deliberate conspiracy.
  • A man is known by the company he keeps and the company affects itself very soon. If the Muslims will choose friendship with the people of the Scripture, act upon their advice and accept their sayings, then in process of the time their wickedness, depravity, denial and diabolical acts will infect the Muslims too.

 

The Muslims should learn in these circumstances that they should not attend more the company of the people of the Scripture, not listen to their talks, not be deceived and not increase their relations with them. It is the only form to escape oneself from their evil.

Lessons from Holy Qur'an

Disbelief Of The People Of The Scripture

LESSON # 394 FROM HOLY QUR’AN

Disbelief Of The People Of The Scripture

Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter – 3)

Verse –98 & 99 of 200, Section –10    (Part – 4)

 

98.  Say: O people of the Scripture! Why disbelieve ye in the Revelations of Allah, when Allah (Himself) is Witness of what ye do?          

 

99.  Say: O people of the Scripture! Why drive ye back believers from the Way of Allah, seeking to make it crooked, when ye are witnesses (to Allah’s Guidance)? And Allah is not Unaware of what ye do.                   

 98.  ‘Qul  yaaa-‘Ahlal-Kitaabi  lima  takfuruuna  bi-‘Aayaatil-laahi  wallaahu  Shahiidun  ‘alaa  maa  ta’-maluun. 

 

99. Qul  yaaa-‘Ahlal-Kitaabi  lima  tasudduuna  ‘an-  Sabiilil-laahi  man  ‘aamana  tab-guuna-haa  ‘iwajanw-wa  ‘antum  shuha-daaa’.  Wa  mallaahu  bi-gaafi-lin  ‘ammaa  ta’-maluun.

Lesson 

 

At first, the Jews and the Christians were being addressed. In the midst, their objections were replied and doubts were cleared. Now they are being admonished again, “While the paths of good and evil have been described you openly. The proofs of just and truth have been manifested, true and valid verses of Holy Qur’an have been caused to hear you. Then now what is the problem with you that you have fixed yourselves to disbelieve in Holy Qur’an and the Holder of this Word of Allah Almighty i.e. His last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), whereas you are called the people of the Scripture”. “Remember it that your entire deeds are being noted by Allah Almighty. He knows very well also your intentions and schemes. When He will arrest you, then He will leave you not before taking a complete account”.   

 

Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) is being commanded in the second verse of this lesson, “Inquire into the People of the Scripture! Not only you are deprived of getting the wealth of Belief yourselves, but you wish to drive back the believers from the Way of Allah too. Why is it so, that you try to find false and untrue faults in Islam seeking to make it crooked (to turn the Muslims away from Islam), when you are witnesses (to Allah’s Guidance)? You do not do these bad acts unknowingly, but try to falsify the truth after recognition. Allah Almighty is not Unaware of these wickedness. When the time of reprisal will come, He will punish you severely.

 

We have come to know from these verses that the children of Israel have willing or unwilling enmity, malice and obstinacy with Islam. Holy Qur’an has described them entire facts openly and they have understood it too, that the Holy Qur’an is really the Word of Allah Almighty. Notwithstanding they do not adopt the straight path.
