Forbidden things

Chapter Hajj” – (The Pilgrimage) – 22

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


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


ذَٰلِكَ وَمَن يُعَظِّمْ حُرُمَٰتِ ٱللَّهِ فَهُوَ خَيْرٌ لَّهُۥ عِندَ رَبِّهِۦ وَأُحِلَّتْ لَكُمُ ٱلْأَنْعَٰمُ إِلَّا مَا يُتْلَىٰ عَلَيْكُمْ فَٱجْتَنِبُوا۟ ٱلرِّجْسَمِنَ ٱلْأَوْثَٰنِ وَٱجْتَنِبُوا۟ قَوْلَ ٱلزُّورِ 30

حُنَفَآءَ لِلَّهِ غَيْرَ مُشْرِكِينَ بِهِۦ وَمَن يُشْرِكْ بِٱللَّهِ فَكَأَنَّمَا خَرَّ مِنَ ٱلسَّمَآءِ فَتَخْطَفُهُ ٱلطَّيْرُ أَوْ تَهْوِى بِهِ ٱلرِّيحُ فِى مَكَانٍ سَحِيقٍ 31


30.  That (is the command). And whoso magnifieth the sacred things of Allah, it will be well for him in the sight of his Lord. The cattle are lawful unto you save that which hath been told you. So shun the filth of idols, and shun lying speech –


31a.  Turning unto Allah (only), not ascribing partners unto Him,

30.  Zaalik.  Wa  many-yu-‘azzim  HurumaaTillaahi  fahuwa  khayrul-lahuu  ‘inda  Rabbih.  Wa  ‘uhillat  lakumul-  ‘an-‘aamu  ‘illaa  maa  yutlaa  ‘alaykum  fajtanibur-rijsa   minal-‘awsaani  wajtanibuu  qawlaz-zuur.


31a.  Hunafaaa-‘a  Lillaahi  gayra  mushrikiina  biH.




HurumaaTillaahi  – (the sacred commands of Allah), Hurumaat is plural of hurmatun. In accordance with Quranic phraseology, every Commandment of Allaah Almighty, whether that is “‘Amr-bil-Ma’roof (ordering for acknowledged virtues) or Nahii  ‘anil munkar (forbidding from the sin”, is called “a sacred thing”. The aim from HurumaaTillaahi is “rijsa   minal-‘awsaani” (the filth of idols). The word “min” in the verse describes that the filth is “idols themselves”. “Bowing before idols and worldly things instead of Allaah Almighty” is filth and impureness”.


Zuura – (a lie), every self-fabricated and self-invented matter is called “zuur” because that is always away from the gist, and the people are deceived by it. These are the meanings of the origin of this word.


After describing about benefits and acts of the Pilgrimage, it is commanded: You should keep these sacred commands in mind and listen again that the commands of Allaah Almighty are full of benefits whether those are “ordering for acknowledged virtues” or “forbidding from evil deeds”. The person who will treat these commandments with respect, he will do such work which will be consequently very good in the Sight of Allaah Almighty. It is Grace of Allaah Almighty upon you that save some beasts; entire cattle have been made lawful unto you. You should be thankful to Him on this favor in like manner that you should worship only Allaah Almighty and sacrifice the cattle on His name. You should never ascribe any partner unto Him. You should shun the filth of idol-worshiping. Sacrificing the cattle on the names of others than Allaah Almighty, giving false evidence and deceiving other people are evil deeds, so you should escape from such works.
