Forging a lie against Lord

Surah YUUNUS – 10 (JONAH)


In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful


59.  Say: Have ye considered what provision Allah hath sent down for you, how ye have made of it unlawful and lawful? Hath Allah permitted you, or do ye forge a lie against Allah? 59.  Qul  ‘ara-‘aytum-maaa  ‘anzalAllaahu  lakum-mir-riz-qin  faja-‘altum-minhu  haraa-manw-wa  halaa-laa.  Qul  ‘aaAllaahu  ’azina  lakum  ‘am  ‘alAllaahi  taftaruun.




Any little child does not understand “what is useful for him and what is harmful”. Therefore, he interferes; which thing comes before him and tries to put it in his mouth. If his parents and elders prevent him; he weeps. Then, when his parents cause him to take any medicine; he does not agree and continues weeping. This condition is of a child who although, after becoming a young person, will become either equal to his parents and elders in sense; or perhaps more intelligent than them. But at that time, he needs their close attention, protection and guidance.


On the contrary, the mankind could not find; even ten millionth part of Knowledge and Philosophy of Allah Almighty after ten million years’ life and experience. What will he think against the matters of God’s Wisdom and Exhortation, and which useful law will he frame on the basis of his unsound sense and thinking?


It is the reason that Allah Almighty described with His Mercy and Kindness to the human being; an easy and simple way of passing life in this world. Its example may be as “an owner of the garden sends his guest with his gardener for a walk; who knows: where is the sweet fruit and where is bitter, on which side are poisonous shrubs and thorny bushes, and where are beds of beautiful flowers?” it would be utmost misfortune of the guest if he does not go with a conversant and sympathizer but moves to any other direction himself. Then he would be responsible himself of his deed and cannot complain if any snake etc. bites him or he is entangled in any marsh.
