Lessons from Holy Qur'an

Disbelief Of The People Of The Scripture


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.          






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.
