Quran Chapter 6 – 71b to 73 (Pt-7, Stg-2) (L-835) - درس قرآن

Epithets of Allah Almighty

Surah ‘Al-‘An-‘aam (Cattle) – Chapter – 6)

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

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

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

   قُلْ أَنَدْعُوا۟مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ مَا لَا يَنفَعُنَا وَلَا يَضُرُّنَا وَنُرَدُّ عَلَىٰٓ أَعْقَابِنَا بَعْدَ إِذْ هَدَىٰنَا ٱللَّهُ كَٱلَّذِى ٱسْتَهْوَتْهُ ٱلشَّيَٰطِينُ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ حَيْرَانَ لَهُۥٓ أَصْحَٰبٌ يَدْعُونَهُۥٓ إِلَىٱلْهُدَى ٱئْتِنَا قُلْ إِنَّ هُدَى ٱللَّهِ هُوَ ٱلْهُدَىٰ وَأُمِرْنَا لِنُسْلِمَ لِرَبِّ ٱلْعَٰلَمِينَ 71

وَأَنْ أَقِيمُوا۟ ٱلصَّلَوٰةَ وَٱتَّقُوهُ وَهُوَ ٱلَّذِىٓ إِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ 72
  وَهُوَٱلَّذِى خَلَقَ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضَ بِٱلْحَقِّ وَيَوْمَ يَقُولُ كُن فَيَكُونُ قَوْلُهُ ٱلْحَقُّ وَلَهُ ٱلْمُلْكُ يَوْمَ يُنفَخُ فِى ٱلصُّورِ عَٰلِمُ ٱلْغَيْبِ وَٱلشَّهَٰدَةِ وَهُوَ ٱلْحَكِيمُٱلْخَبِيرُ 73

71b.  Say: Lo! The Guidance of Allah is Guidance. And we are ordered to surrender to the Lord of the Worlds.

72.  And say that, Establish Worship and be dutiful to Him. And He it is unto Whom ye will be gathered.

73.  And He it is Who created the heavens and the earth in Truth. And in the Day when He say: Be! Then it will become. His Word is the Truth, and His will be the Sovereignty on the Day when the Trumpet is blown. Knower of the Invisible and the Visible. And He is the Wise, the Aware.
71b.  Qul  ‘inna  HudAllaahi  hu-wal-Hudaa.  Wa  ‘umirnaa  linuslima  li-Rabbil-‘Aalamiin.

72.  Wa  ‘an  ‘Aqiimus-Salaata  watta-quuH.  Wa  HuwAlllazii  ‘ilayHi  tuh-sharuun.

73.  Wa  HuwAllazii  khalaqas-samaawwati  wal-‘arza  bil-Haqq.  Wa  Yawma  Yaquulu  Kun.  Fayakuun.  QawluHul-Haqq.  Wa  laHul-mulku  Yawma  yun-fakhu  fis-Suur.  ‘Aalimul  Gaybi  wash-Shahaadah.  Wa  Huwal-Hakiimul-  Khabiir.

Commentary

Khalaqa – (to create, to make), it has been derived from khalaq, the actual meaning of which is “to prepare any other thing after clipping a part from any larger thing as, a tailor makes a shirt from a cut piece of cloth, which was roughly clipped from a big piece of cloth”. The entire heavens and the earth have been created from one thing duly clipped with correct guess. However, there is a little difference between above both things i.e. the piece of cloth comes short after clipping for the shirt, but that thing does not lessen, from which the heavens, the earth and the whole other creatures among them have been created after clipping.

Suur – As per Arabic language, the Suur means “a (musical) horn prepared duly excavated from its inner side”, a very powerful sound comes out from it if its first end is blown by mouth. Like this, a thing (the Trumpet) is ready in the Invisible World, which will be blown by an Angel, named Israfil (peace be upon Him). Everything will be perished due to its frightful sound. Then, whenever Allah Almighty will sanction, that Angel (peace be upon Him) will blow in the Trumpet again, the entire human beings (from the beginning to the end) will be reproduced due to this sound. That will be the Day of Resurrection. The word Suur has been used for our knowledge only, otherwise, it is not easy to understand its reality at this time.

It was commanded in the previous verse: You should say to the idolaters! We cannot be the worshippers of idols because we have known the True Worshipped. Following virtues and excellence of That Original Worshipped have been described in these verses:
1.   Allah Almighty is the Lord of the entire Worlds.

2.   He it is before Whom, the entire mankind will be accountable and gathered on the Day of Resurrection.

3.   He it is Who created the heavens and the earth in Truth.

4.   He is the Creator by saying the one word only “Kun” (Be).

5.   His Word is the Truth. Surely, that is done, what He says.

6.   His will be the Sovereignty on the Day of Resurrection.

7.   He is Knower of the Invisible and the Visible.

Crying, instead of unto God - Quran Chapter 6 – 71a (Pt-7, Stg-2) (L-834) - درس قرآن


Quran Chapter 6 – 71a (Pt-7, Stg-2) (L-834) - درس قرآن

Crying, instead of unto God

Surah ‘Al-‘An-‘aam (Cattle) – Chapter – 6)

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

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

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

   قُلْ أَنَدْعُوا۟مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ مَا لَا يَنفَعُنَا وَلَا يَضُرُّنَا وَنُرَدُّ عَلَىٰٓ أَعْقَابِنَا بَعْدَ إِذْ هَدَىٰنَا ٱللَّهُ كَٱلَّذِى ٱسْتَهْوَتْهُ ٱلشَّيَٰطِينُ فِى ٱلْأَرْضِ حَيْرَانَ لَهُۥٓ أَصْحَٰبٌ يَدْعُونَهُۥٓ إِلَىٱلْهُدَى ٱئْتِنَا قُلْ إِنَّ هُدَى ٱللَّهِ هُوَ ٱلْهُدَىٰ وَأُمِرْنَا لِنُسْلِمَ لِرَبِّ ٱلْعَٰلَمِينَ 71

71a.  Say: shall we cry, instead of unto Allah, unto that which neither profiteth us nor hurteth us, and shall we turn back after Allah hath guided us, like one bewildeth, whom the devils have infatuated in the earth, who hath companions who invite him to the guidance (saying): Come unto us?
71a.  Qul  ‘anad-‘uu  min  duuNillaahi  maa  laa  yanfa-‘unaa  wa  laa  yazurrunaa  wa  nuraddu  ‘alaaa  ‘a’-qaabinaa  ba’-da  ‘iz  hadaa-nAllaahu  kallazis-tahwat-hush-shayaa-tiinu  fil-‘arzi  hayraan.  Lahuuu  ‘as-haabuny-yad-‘uunahuuu  ‘ilal-huda’-tinaa.                   

Commentary

‘A’-qaabun – this word is plural of “’Aqab”, which means “Heel”.

‘As-tahwat – it is past tense, which has been derived from ‘is-tahwaaa’, which means “to mislead, to infatuate”. 

‘Ash-shayaa-tiin – it is plural of Shaytaan (Satan), the devil. It aims “those evil spirits, who are called “ignis, ghost, demon etc. which are unseen but can be felt by other means”.
                                                               
It is commanded that the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) should say to the disbelievers: Do you want from us that we should worship and cry unto the stones, the trees etc. and forsake Allah Almighty, whereas you know that neither those can profit us and nor hurt? Do you wish to turn us back, while Allah Almighty has guided and led us towards the Straight Path? Certainly we shall never turn away from that Guidance.

Allah Almighty says: Ask them! What is your opinion about that person, who is going on the Straight Path along with his well-wishers, lovers, beloveds, friends and companions, but the mischievous, selfish, tyrant devils cause to desert him from his associates by pointing him out, and leave him bewildered in the forest? Now he has been rambling hither and thither senseless due to the influence of evil spirits. Sometimes he rushes toward a thing and the other time he runs toward any other thing. His friends and companions are calling him with sympathy and say: If you will come unto us, you will be set free from these confusions. But he is under the control of astray devils and unable to hear the voice of his own people? If we shall give up Islam now, then our condition will be totally the same as that person.

We should learn from this verse that we should not be separated from the Way of True Muslims due to tempt by evil desires. Otherwise, we shall gain nothing except distress and confusion. And even the voice of our well-wisher friends will not reach our ears, because the desires make a man blind and deaf, and leave him alone bewildered.

Way of Preaching - Quran Chapter 6 – 70b (Pt-7, Stg-2) (L-833) - درس قرآن


Quran Chapter 6 – 70b (Pt-7, Stg-2) (L-833) - درس قرآن

Way of Preaching

Surah ‘Al-‘An-‘aam (Cattle) – Chapter – 6)

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

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

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

   وَذَرِ ٱلَّذِينَ ٱتَّخَذُوا۟ دِينَهُمْ لَعِبًا وَلَهْوًا وَغَرَّتْهُمُ ٱلْحَيَوٰةُ ٱلدُّنْيَا وَذَكِّرْ بِهِۦٓ أَن تُبْسَلَ نَفْسٌۢ بِمَا كَسَبَتْ لَيْسَ لَهَا مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ وَلِىٌّ وَلَا شَفِيعٌ وَإِنتَعْدِلْ كُلَّ عَدْلٍ لَّا يُؤْخَذْ مِنْهَآ أُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ ٱلَّذِينَ أُبْسِلُوا۟ بِمَا كَسَبُوا۟ لَهُمْ شَرَابٌ مِّنْ حَمِيمٍ وَعَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌۢ بِمَا كَانُوا۟ يَكْفُرُونَ 70

Preaching is incumbent upon the Muslims and it is the same duty which has been prescribed upon Muhammad, the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) by Allah Almighty, and after Him, it has been prescribed upon the Muslim Nation, which is His Successor. Once earlier, the topic of preaching has already been discussed in this Chapter (Surah).

Now, the second time, which three verses we recited in the previous four lessons, not only the preaching has been prescribed upon the Nation into them, but we can know the way of preaching also. This lesson will reflect on it so that, after understanding the importance of this duty, it may be performed in a correct manner.

Last three verses are a link of this chain. Abstract from the first verse of them is “You should withdraw from those people, who meddle with the Revelations of Holy Qur’aan (when they listen), disrespect the verses by their tongue or acts and are not ready to hear with humanity, because in such condition, there is a fear “By sitting with them, our names may be written in the list of wrongdoing people. Then you should not go unto them until they meddle with any other topic”.

The idolaters of Makkah used to do so, that, after hearing the Revelations of Holy Qur’aan, they used to mock with Them. Due to this reason, the Muslims thought: What form of their guidance will be, because as soon as we withdraw from their meeting, they begin to meddle and jest, curse and taunt rudely in the same manner?

It has been replied in the next verse: In such condition, those people who withdraw and ward off evil are not accountable for them in aught. Moreover, it is commanded also that the reminder about the commands of Holy Qur’aan must be given them that haply they too, who are wise of them, may ward off evil.

In the third verse, it has been described very clearly that you should forsake those rude people who take their religion for a pastime and a jest, and whom the life of the world has beguiled. But even then, it has been commanded that you should remind the mankind by means of the Revelations of Holy Qur,aan, admonition and advice, lest a soul be destroyed by what it earned. It can be understood from this description that “If there is any fear that whenever we shall visit them, they will mock with us”, in this form, admonishing them is not incumbent.

Therefore, in this situation, such a method of preaching should be chosen that the duty of preaching is performed as well as the cause of conflict is not born. It can be known by thinking that its only way is: The Muslims should prove it the best religion by acting upon their own religion themselves. They should correct their own condition before saying or hearing others in such a way that everyone begin to say: No doubt; these people are the best in morality, business, social relationship and politics. They lead all in sympathy, advice and human well-wishing. They are embodied incomparable of union and amity.

Whenever we shall expose ourselves to view duly corrected and the people will know that, truly, we are the best people, then they will adopt our way automatically. Going unto the non-Muslims with the present condition, in which the Muslims are fallen, is like treating ourselves with contempt. In the present form, we cannot say even to our own Muslims, because they will reply us at the spot: Look at your own at first. Then saying to others is useless. What can we hope from others in such condition? So the best method of preaching is: Produce yourselves as a model role for others and along with it, cause to hear the Message to other people.

Compensation will not be acceptable - Quran Chapter 6 – 70b (Pt-7, Stg-2) (L-832) - درس قرآن


Quran Chapter 6 – 70b (Pt-7, Stg-2) (L-832) - درس قرآن

Compensation will not be acceptable

Surah ‘Al-‘An-‘aam (Cattle) – Chapter – 6)

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

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

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

   وَذَرِ ٱلَّذِينَ ٱتَّخَذُوا۟ دِينَهُمْ لَعِبًا وَلَهْوًا وَغَرَّتْهُمُ ٱلْحَيَوٰةُ ٱلدُّنْيَا وَذَكِّرْ بِهِۦٓ أَن تُبْسَلَ نَفْسٌۢ بِمَا كَسَبَتْ لَيْسَ لَهَا مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ وَلِىٌّ وَلَا شَفِيعٌ وَإِنتَعْدِلْ كُلَّ عَدْلٍ لَّا يُؤْخَذْ مِنْهَآ أُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ ٱلَّذِينَ أُبْسِلُوا۟ بِمَا كَسَبُوا۟ لَهُمْ شَرَابٌ مِّنْ حَمِيمٍ وَعَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌۢ بِمَا كَانُوا۟ يَكْفُرُونَ 70

70b.  And if it offer every compensation it will not be accepted from it. Those are they who are perished by their own deserts. For them is drink of boiling water and a painful doom, because they disbelieved.                 
70b.  Wa  ‘in-  ta’-dil  kulla  ‘ad-lil-laa  yu’-khaz  minhaa.  ‘Ulaaa-‘ikalla-ziina  ‘ubsiluu  bimaa  kasabuu.  Lahum  sharaabum-min  hamiiminw-wa  ‘azaabun  ‘aliimum-bimaa  kaanuu  yakfuruun.                  

Commentary

Ta’-dil – (offering compensation), this word is from ‘Adl, which means “equality” as per Arabic language. That thing can be compensation of any other thing, which is equal to the other. Therefore, here it aims ‘compensation’.

Sharaabun – (a drink), in Arabic, every drinkable thing is called sharaab, as every eatable thing is called ta-‘aam. There are some other words for the forbidden liquor (sharaab) like ‘Khumar’ etc. in Arabic language.

Hamiim – (boiling), this word has been derived from hamam. Two more famous words are in use from the same origin:

1.   Hamaam – The bath-room, where hot water is available and the hamaam is also kept hot.

2.   Hummaa – it means ‘Fever’.

It is appendix of previous verse. It was described in the first part of this verse (previous lesson) that they will not find any protector or intercessor on the Day of Resurrection except Allah Almighty. Now it is being explained that if they will offer, even every compensation, which they will have, to get rid of that Day’s calamity, it will not be possible. Entire remunerations of the whole world will be useless there. Suppose! They have the entire world and by offering it, they want to be saved, even then they will not be able to escape. Only good works and belief of this life will be useful There. There will be no source of their deliverance while their own deeds would be cause of their seizure.

It is commanded that even the biggest compensation will not be accepted before Allah Almighty. On the Doomsday, the condition of such people will be that, ill-luck of their evil deeds would have surrounded them from all around and they would be standing as prisoners in the Court of Allah Almighty like criminals to be punished. Their wicked acts will become handcuffs and fetters, and those will tie their hands and feet.

They would have drunk big glasses of cold water in the world. They would not have talked except the bottles pressed in the ice. They would have remained sitting and sleeping in the soft chairs and quilted bedding comfortably. But there, their disbelief only will be kept in front. Worldly pomp, property and dignity will not be useful There, no concession whether they were honored and well off people of the world. For drinking, boiling water will be given to them, and they will suffer from a painful doom of body and soul of every sort, and that will be only because they disbelieved in Allah Almighty and turned away from His Commands in the world.

Be saved from the wicked - Quran Chapter 6 – 70a (Pt-7, Stg-2) (L-831) - درس قرآن


Quran Chapter 6 – 70a (Pt-7, Stg-2) (L-831) - درس قرآن

Be saved from the wicked

Surah ‘Al-‘An-‘aam (Cattle) – Chapter – 6)

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

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

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

   وَذَرِ ٱلَّذِينَ ٱتَّخَذُوا۟ دِينَهُمْ لَعِبًا وَلَهْوًا وَغَرَّتْهُمُ ٱلْحَيَوٰةُ ٱلدُّنْيَا وَذَكِّرْ بِهِۦٓ أَن تُبْسَلَ نَفْسٌۢ بِمَا كَسَبَتْ لَيْسَ لَهَا مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ وَلِىٌّ وَلَا شَفِيعٌ وَإِنتَعْدِلْ كُلَّ عَدْلٍ لَّا يُؤْخَذْ مِنْهَآ أُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ ٱلَّذِينَ أُبْسِلُوا۟ بِمَا كَسَبُوا۟ لَهُمْ شَرَابٌ مِّنْ حَمِيمٍ وَعَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌۢ بِمَا كَانُوا۟ يَكْفُرُونَ 70

70a.  And forsake those who take their religion for a pastime and a jest, and whom the life of the world has beguiled. Remind (mankind) hereby lest a soul be destroyed by what it earneth. It hath beside Allah no protector nor intercessor.
70a.  Wa  zaril-laziinatta-khazuu  diinahum  la-‘ibanw-wa  lah-wan-wa  garrat-humul-hayaatud-dunyaa  wa  zakkir  bihiii  ‘an-  tubsala  nafsum-  bimaa  kasabat;  laysa  lahuu  min-duNIllaahi  waliy-yunw-wa  laa  shafii’.

Commentary

Zar – it is a command which has been derived from wazar. Wazar means “being separate by forsaking”. Zar means “Be separate by forsaking and mind your own business”.

La-‘ibanw-wa  lah-wan – a pastime and a jest. We have discussed these words already in the fourth section of this Chapter.

Garrat – it is past tense and this word has been derived from Garuur. Garuurmeans “to beguile, to mislead, to deceive”. Magruur is the person, who has fallen into misunderstanding, misapprehension.

Tubsala – is destroyed, is seized.

The people; belonged to earlier times vitiated their religion; too much that they admitted dancing, singing, pastime and jest also into their religious affairs and afterwards these amusing acts became entire religion and the actual religion; that is to say; worship, prayers and other issues were erased before these ceremonies, as though the religion was destroyed, and those nations, who destroyed it, were also ruined.

Allah Almighty has forbidden the Muslims to follow them, so that the religion may keep its footing in its original form as well as the believers of this religion may stand firm too in good condition. It is commanded that you should give up conversation with them. However, you should deliver the Message of Holy Qur’aan to them and admonish them properly that: Such a time is coming soon when you will be seized due to your wicked deeds, and there will be neither any protector nor intercessor. You will be in such condition that your deeds, in which you did not regard the Rules, Regulations made by Allah Almighty and His Commandments, but you broke Them by following your desires, will be the reason of your destruction. Your friends will desert from your companionship. Those who recommend you here, will run away from you there. You will see none but Allah Almighty from Whom you had disconnected in the world, and then you will believe that: There is No well for me now.

Allah Almighty, in Whose grip you would have to come in the Hereafter, you left Him and displeased from yourself in the world. And they have left you today, with whom you linked your relationships, leaving Allah Almighty. Today (the Day of Resurrection) your affair is only with Allah Almighty and He will treat you as He warned and admonished you with complete details through Holy Qur’aan already in the world that “It hath beside Allah Almighty no protector nor intercessor”, so you should try to please Allah Almighty at every cost.

Responsibility of good people - Quran Chapter 6 – 69 (Pt-7, Stg-2) (L-830) - درس قرآن


Quran Chapter 6 – 69 (Pt-7, Stg-2) (L-830) - درس قرآن

Responsibility of good people

Surah ‘Al-‘An-‘aam (Cattle) – Chapter – 6)

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

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

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

   وَمَا عَلَى ٱلَّذِينَ يَتَّقُونَ مِنْ حِسَابِهِم مِّن شَىْءٍ وَلَٰكِن ذِكْرَىٰ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَّقُونَ 69

69.  Those who ward off (evil) are not accountable for them in aught, but the reminder (must be given them) that haply they (too) may ward off (evil). 
69.  Wa  maa  ‘alallaziina  yattaquuna  min  hisaabihim-min  shay-‘inw-wa  laakin-  Zikraa  la-‘allahum  yattaquun.

Commentary

Yattaquuna – this word has been derived from Waqi-yun which means “to save, to guard”. Origin of the word under discussion is ‘Ittiqaaa’, which means “to escape oneself, to abstain from, to be temperate”.

Hisaab – (calculation, number and account). Here it aims “counting of there acts and deeds”.

Zikraa – reminder, remembrance.

The Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) was commanded in the previous verse that He should not have any connection with those indecent and mischievous people, who meddle with the Revelations of Holy Qur’aan and withdraw from them in such condition until they meddle with another topic.
                                             
When Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) caused to hear the people above quoted verse, they said: We go to the House of Allah Almighty (the Masjid of Makkah) for Going Round and worship, and the idolaters exist there also, and they meddle with us and our acts every time, and mock badly with the Revelations of Holy Qur’aan. Because if we shall go there, certainly they will begin to do joke more than earlier, so have we been disallowed to go there? Although we go there for worship but participation in their meeting would be unavoidable, and this act of ours would be against the command of this verse. Some people said: How will they be corrected if we shall not go unto them?

The solution of this problem has been described in this verse that the person, who goes with the intention of worship and Going Round the Ka’-bah without having any concern with the wicked people, and considers their conduct bad, and have patience upon their tyranny, then he will not be accountable for the badness of their deeds. Because he has gone there for his own business and his only aim is to go round the Ka’-bah (the Square Building) and worship. However everyone should try to cause to reach the admonition and advice somehow up to their ears. He/she will be correct whose luck will be good.

It is commanded that those people who are saved from the wicked deeds and do not sit with them, they are not accountable for their evil deeds. If any person has to attend the company of such people due to any reason during their act of meddling the Revelations of Allah Almighty, then he will not be held as their partner and responsible, and he will not be punished against their wicked acts, and neither can he admonish them at that time. Of course, whenever any suitable situation is observed, he should try to admonish them, so that whosoever of them desires to come to the Straight Path, may turn easily.

Some religious commentators say: There is no sin for any such person of their going astray, who does not go for admonishing those wicked people. Moreover the advice is better that haply they too may ward off evil, and the person, who advised, is rewarded.

Joke with Holy Qur’aan - Quran Chapter 6 – 68 (Pt-7, Stg-2) (L-829) - درس قرآن


Quran Chapter 6 – 68 (Pt-7, Stg-2) (L-829) - درس قرآن

Joke with Holy Qur’aan

Surah ‘Al-‘An-‘aam (Cattle) – Chapter – 6)

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

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

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

   وَإِذَا رَأَيْتَ ٱلَّذِينَ يَخُوضُونَ فِىٓ ءَايَٰتِنَا فَأَعْرِضْ عَنْهُمْ حَتَّىٰ يَخُوضُوا۟ فِى حَدِيثٍ غَيْرِهِۦ وَإِمَّا يُنسِيَنَّكَٱلشَّيْطَٰنُ فَلَا تَقْعُدْ بَعْدَ ٱلذِّكْرَىٰ مَعَ ٱلْقَوْمِ ٱلظَّٰلِمِينَ 68

68.  And when Thou seest those who meddle with Our Revelations, withdraw from them until they meddle with another topic. And if the devil cause thee to forget, sit not, after the remembrance, with the wrongdoing people.             
68.  Wa  ‘izaa  ra-‘ay-tallaziina  yakhuu-zuuna  fiii  ‘AayaatiNaa  fa-‘a’-riz  ‘anhum  hattaa  yakhuuzuu  fii  hadiisin  gayrih.  Wa  ‘immaa  yunsi-yannakash-Shaytaanu  falaa  taq-‘ud  ba’-daz-zikraa  ma-‘al  qaw-miz-zaalimiin.                

Commentary

Yakhuu-zuuna – this word has been derived from Khawz. Its actual meanings are “to enter in to water” which aims “to start talking about any matter”. Yakhuu-zuun means “when they start talking about the Verses of Holy Qur’aan”. This type of talking by the disbelievers was for jesting purpose always. And they used to joke with the Revelations of Holy Qur’aan. Second time use of this word in this Verse will be meant as “to engage”.

It was expounded in the previous verse that the people of Makkah deny the Revelations of Holy Qur’aan, but in fact these Revelations are quite True. Then Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) was commanded that He should proclaim: I have only Holy Qur’aan, whether you hear it or otherwise, I shall cause to hear you constantly.

Behavior of the disbelievers with Holy Qur’aan was that they used to recite the verses of Holy Qur’aan by infringing its words. By producing false meanings of the verses, they used to jest and joke with them. Their main aim was that the people should take it easy (know it as an ordinary thing) and emphasize it not.

It has been instructed in this verse that whenever these people disrespect the Revelations of Holy Qur’aan, recite them making faces or tell their such meanings that the hearers laugh, and despite causing to know, they do not refrain from doing so, then you should leave them.

It is commanded: O Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him)! Whenever you observe that these people are mocking with Holly Qur’aan, then you should withdraw from them. However, when they stop treating with contempt and begin to talk upon any other matter, then there is nothing wrong to sit with them. If Satan causes you to forget anytime that you had to withdraw from them in such condition, then you should get up from that place immediately after remembrance, because they are wrongdoing people and by meddling with Holly Qur’aan they are harming their own. You should not have any concern with such ignorant and uncivilized people. It is evident from here that maintaining the Dignity and Greatness of Holly Quraan and its respect is our responsibility. You should be separate from them and express your displeasure for them, who contempt it, explain its meanings wrongfully and do as they desire.
