Friendship Of The People Of The Scripture


Friendship Of The People Of The Scripture   

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

Verse –119 of 200, Section –12    (Part – 4)

Lo! ye are those who love them though they love you not, and ye believe in all the Scripture. And when they fall in with you they say: We believe; and when they go apart they bite their finger-tips at you, for rage. Say: Perish in your rage! Lo! Allah is Aware of what is hidden in (your) breasts.

Haaa-‘antum  ‘ulaaa-‘i  tu-hibbuunahum  wa  laa  yuhib-buunakum  wa  tu’-minuuna  bil-Kitaabi  kullih. Wa  ‘izaa  la-quukum  qaaluuu’  ‘aamannaa. Wa  ‘izaa  khalaw  azzuu  ‘alay-kumul-‘anaamila  minal-gayz. Qul-  muutuu  bi-gayzikum. ‘Innallaaha  ‘Alii-mum-  bizaatis-suduur.  






Allah Almighty has commanded the Muslims, “You are exhausted in the love of the People of the Scripture but they are not your friends, but they are such enemies who desire to undermine you. You believe in the entire Scripture either those belong to any nation and revealed during any Prophet’s (peace be upon him) time. On the contrary, they do not believe in your Book (Holy Qur’an) and Prophet, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him).Eventheir faith in their own Scripture is not correct too. It was necessary for them that they would have to love you and you would expose displeasure from them but the case is going at variance here.   


Like this the Hypocrites used to claim with tongue that they were Muslims, likewise the Christians and the Jews began saying the word ‘aamannaa (we are Muslims) for getting the meanings from it that they believed in their Scripture and acknowledged them. Therefore, they used to try deceiving the Believers in the screen of saying “As we believe in our books and admit them, therefore we are also Muslim”.


Their malice with the Muslims can be felt from the fact that observing the progress of Islam and mutual affection between the Muslims, they become jealous. When they cannot do something, then due to anger and wrath they gnash their teeth and bite their fingers. The Muslims would not get any harm from their enmity. The People of the Scripture will use to die in their rage and their desires will be in vain. Allah Almighty has informed the Muslims about their secret wickedness, so that they may escape always from the enemies of their own and Allah Almighty.
