In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Shall I seek other than Allah for judge, when He it is Who hath revealed unto you (this) Scripture, fully explained? Those unto whom We gave the Scripture (aforetime) know that it is revealed from thy Lord in truth. So be not thou (O Muhammad) of the waverers.       ‘Afa-gayrAllaahi  ‘abtagii  hakamanw-wa  Huwal-laziii  ‘anzala  ‘ilay-kumul-Kitaaba  mufas-salaa.  Wallaziina  ‘aatayNaa-humul-Kitaaba  ya’-lamuuna  ‘annahuu  munaz-zalum-mir-Rabbika  bil-haqqi  falaa  takuunanna  minal-mumtariin.

‘Abtagii – (I shall seek), origin of this word is ‘abtagaa’. Bagii means “to seek for, to ask for, to desire”. ‘Abtagaa’ means “to search or seek, to explore, to want”.

Hakamun – (a Judge), it has been derived from Hukam. Hakamun means “judge, Muhammadan Magistrate, arbitrator”.

‘Al-mumtariin – (the waverers, the doubters). It is plural of the subject “mumtarii”, origin of which is ‘imtiraarun and made from miryatun. Miryatun mean “doubt”.


It has been described in the previous verses that there are many devils in the world, who mislead the human beings, and they use to try to entrap the inconsiderate people in their net by falsely praised talks. And maximum people, who do not believe in the life of the Hereafter, come into their temptation. The Prophets and the Messengers (peace be upon Them) bear always trouble from those people.


The last Messenger of Allah Almighty, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) had also business with those human like devils and His followers will have to deal with them too. Those people, who seek the truth, should not lose their consciousness after being caught in their grip, and see this verse that what lesson it is teaching them to face such condition. That way of consideration is a Panacea for the religious safety and guidance of the mankind, which has been described to the Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) in this verse.


It is commanded: O Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him)! You should declare it openly: Can anyone be a judge among us and the stupid people except Allah Almighty, Who has revealed this Holy Scripture i.e. Noble Qur’aan for the guidance of the human being and He has related entire useful matters very clearly and with brilliant opening? I cannot choose any other for a judge leaving Allah Almighty. He is commanding Me (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) that all ancient people, who were given the Scripture, know very well that this last Scripture has brought quite correct and true commands from your Lord. There should be never any doubt in its Truth.
