In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful


61.  And of them are those who vex the Prophet and say: He is only a hearer. Say: A hearer of good for you, who believeth in Allah and is true to the believers, and a mercy for such of you as believe. And those who vex the Messenger of Allah, for them there is a painful doom. 61.  Wa  minhumul-laziina  yu’-zuunan-Nabiyya  wa  yaquu-luuna  “Huwa  ‘uzun”.  “Qul  ‘uzunu  khayril-lakum  yu’-minu  BIllaahi  wa  yu’-minu  lil-mu’-miniina  wa  Rahmatul-lillaziina  ‘aa-manuu  minkum”.

In the previous verses it was narrated that some Hypocrites were selfish and greedy. In this connection, the rule of Zakaat was discussed also, that God Almighty has prescribed for you as a collective duty for distributing this money in some kinds of the people. The property of Zakaat (the poor-due) must be divided according to God’s prescribed method. Besides them, no individual have any right in such property and money. Another bad habit of the Hypocrites has been disclosed in this verse.


It is commanded that some Hypocrites used to discuss the evil of of the Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) with one another during mutual conversation at their places of assembly and calumniate Him of various sorts. When they were told that if such news would reach the Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam), He (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) would feel grief and be afflicted. Then they used to say: We shall content Him (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) by evading and tricks, because He (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) is the person who only hears, and whatever is told to Him (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) by anyone, He trusts. It is commanded: Say to them O Prophet (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam): This courtesy of the Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) is only for your betterment, otherwise if He (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) had been excited due to very little matters, then you would have been ruined very earlier. Why the morality of the Prophet (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) must not be correct whereas He has faith in Allah Almighty. He (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) trusts in the truth of His believer Companions (May Allah be pleased with Them). And He is a mercy and kindness for those of you who are true Muslims. If now; someone desires to acquire sympathy and favor of the Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) from this pleasant manner, he is fortunate. And whosoever carries on His back-biting and vexing by reaping advantage of His patience and softness, then for him there is a very painful doom. Such kind of people will be punished very severely in the both Worlds.
