Quran Chapter 33: 53c & 54 (Pt-22, Stg-5) (L-2613) درس قرآن

Harming Messenger in any matter is not conceivable

Chapter ’Al-‘Ahzaab” – (The Clans) – 33

‘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)


وَمَا كَانَ لَكُمْ أَن تُؤْذُوا۟ رَسُولَ ٱللَّهِ وَلَآ أَن تَنكِحُوٓا۟ أَزْوَٰجَهُۥ مِنۢ بَعْدِهِۦٓ أَبَدًا إِنَّ ذَٰلِكُمْ كَانَ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ عَظِيمًا  53c  إِن تُبْدُوا۟ شَيْـًٔا أَوْ تُخْفُوهُ فَإِنَّ ٱللَّهَ كَانَ بِكُلِّ شَىْءٍ عَلِيمًا 54

53c.  And it is not for you to cause annoyance to the Messenger of Allah, nor that ye should ever marry his wives after him. Lo! that in Allah’s Sight would be an enormity.


54.  Whether ye divulge a thing or keep it hidden, lo! Allah is ever Knower of all things.

53c.  Wa  maa  kaana  lakum  ‘an-  tu’-zuu  RasuulAllaahi  wa  laaa  ‘an-  tankihuuu  ‘azwaa-jahuu  mim-  ba’-dihiii  ‘abadaa.  ‘Inna  zaalikum  kaana  ‘indAllaahi  ‘aziimaa.


54.   ‘In tubduu  shay-‘an ‘aw  tukhfuuhu  fa-‘innAllaaha  kaana  bi-  kulli  shay-‘in  ‘Aliimaa. 


The Muslims are being instructed: After having belief in Muhammad that he is a Messenger of Allaah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), there is no such opportunity of it that he is harmed, grieved or troubled by committing or saying any matter or thing against him. It is the work of those who have denied his Messenger-hood and begun to become obstinate in spite of meditating in clear signs and proofs produced by him.


Behold! It is also unlawful for you to wed wives (May Allaah be pleased with them) of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) after his departure. Your such act is a great villainy in the Sight of Allaah Almighty.


It was indicated earlier by mentioning that wives (May Allaah be pleased with them) of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) were “’Ummahaatul-Mu’miniin” (the Mothers of the Believers), but because this matter was most important, so now marriage with them has been forbidden very clearly.


It is commanded for emphasizing this matter: Indeed, that would be an enormity in the Sight of Allaah Almighty. You should never think or talk to marry them (May Allaah be pleased with them), because as Allaah Almighty knows all apparent things and matters, like this He is Aware too of your thoughts which are hidden in your minds. Therefore, you should keep your thoughts also pure and clean.
