Considering the Truth as evident magic

Chapter “SABAA’” – (Saba) – 34

‘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)


وَإِذَا تُتْلَىٰ عَلَيْهِمْ ءَايَٰتُنَا بَيِّنَٰتٍ قَالُوا۟ مَا هَٰذَآ إِلَّا رَجُلٌ يُرِيدُ أَن يَصُدَّكُمْ عَمَّا كَانَ يَعْبُدُ ءَابَآؤُكُمْ وَقَالُوا۟ مَا هَٰذَآ إِلَّآ إِفْكٌ مُّفْتَرًى وَقَالَ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ لِلْحَقِّ لَمَّا جَآءَهُمْ إِنْ هَٰذَآ إِلَّا سِحْرٌ مُّبِينٌ 43

43.  And when Our Revelations are recited unto them in plain terms, they say: This is naught else than a man who would turn you away from what your fathers used to worship; and they say: This is naught else than an invented lie. And those who disbelieve say of the Truth when it reached them: This is naught else than evident magic. 43.  Wa  ‘izaa  tutlaa  ‘alayhim  ‘AayaatuNaa  Bayyinaatin  qaaluu  maa  haazaaa  ‘illaa  raju-luny-yuriidu  ‘any-yasuddakum  ‘ammaa  kaana  ya’-budu  ‘aa-baaa-‘ukum.  Wa  qaaluu  maa  haazaaa  ‘illaaa  ‘ifkum-muftaraa.  Wa  qaalal-laziina  kafaruu  lil-Haqqi  lammaa  jaaa-‘ahum.  ‘In  haazaaa  ‘illaa  sihrum-mubiin.


Tutlaa – (are recited), this word is from tilaawatun.


Muftaran – (self-invented), it is the Passive Participle from the word ‘iftaraa’, origin of which is faraya.


It is commanded: When clear verses of Holy Qur’an are recited before those people then they say concerning Our Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allaah be upon him): “He (God forbid) is neither a Messenger and nor a Prophet, but is (God forbid) a selfish man, who desires to remove old customs and traditions by introducing own words. He desires to get you released from adoration of those gods; of whom your forefathers used to adore, so that he may become your Chieftain. And about the Qur’an is it that false stories have been included in it and he says that it is the Word of Allah”.


It is commanded: Behold these disbelievers! When pure and true Revelations reached them and began to draw attention of the common people, then they began to say: These are nothing (God forbid) but obvious magic which fascinates the hearts of the listeners. No reality exists in the verses of Qur’an and their entire impression will scamper off after a few days.
