Producing confusion

Surah Baniii ‘Israaa-‘iil (The Children of Israel) – 17

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast)

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

وَإِن كَادُوا۟ لَيَسْتَفِزُّونَكَ مِنَ ٱلْأَرْضِ لِيُخْرِجُوكَ مِنْهَا وَإِذًا لَّا يَلْبَثُونَ خِلَٰفَكَ إِلَّا قَلِيلًا 76

  سُنَّةَ مَن قَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا قَبْلَكَمِن رُّسُلِنَا وَلَا تَجِدُ لِسُنَّتِنَا تَحْوِيلًا 77


76.  And they indeed wished to scare thee from the land that they might drive thee forth from thence, and then they would have stayed (there) but a little after thee.


77.  (Such was Our) Practice in the case of those whom We sent before thee (to mankind), and thou wilt not find any shifting in Our Practice.

76.  Wa  ‘in  kaaduu  la-yasta-fiz-zuunaka  minal- ‘arzi  li-yukhri-juuka  minhaa  wa  ‘izal-laa  yal-basuuna  khilaafaka  ‘illaa  qa-liilaa.


77.  Sunnata  man-  qad  ‘arsal-Naa  qablaka  mir-rusuli-Naa  wa  laa  tajidu  li-SunnatiNaa  tah-wiilaa

(Sction 8).




Yasta-fiz-zuuna – {they (wish to) scare}, this word is from ‘istafzaaz, which means “to scare, to terrify suddenly, to frighten”.


Khilaafa – (behind, after), this word has passed in Surah Tawbah.


It is commanded: The people of Makkah wish to confuse you as much that you should be driven away from Makkah being embarrassed. But they should bear in mind that after exiling You {O Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him)} from Makkah, they also will not live more days satisfied. They will dwell here only for a few days, then they will be expelled for ever from here. The same established order was kept up in the matters of previous Prophets (peace be upon them) that whenever any folk troubled her Messenger (peace be upon him) and made the dwelling of the Prophet difficult in the township; then after that; they too could not live there and were ruined. Hear it carefully that when We bring a rule in operation, then it can never be changed. Due to which wickedness; the ancient people were punished, if the same villainy appears in the world again; then the same punishment will also be given to the existing people. The doom can be delayed, however certainly it shall come sooner or later.


It is found from this verse that prescribed laws of Allah Almighty work properly always. Due to which reasons; any result has been regulated in the past, if the same circumstances are produced again, then again the same result will surely come out. The Scientists have discovered this Established Order and confused the people of the world. But whatever was required to be learnt, we did not learn.
