Lesson

In the first sentence of this verse, the Jews were held responsible against their criticism that the things, which were forbidden in the religious law of the Children of Israel, how did they become permissible in Islam? God Almighty commanded, “Those things which you have considered, were not unlawful. However, you had fixed them forbidden at your own. In the Divine Law of Abraham (peace be upon him) those were never forbidden. 

In this last sentence of the verse, the Children of Israel are being addressed in clear words and with powerful method, “If you have still any doubt and your hearts do not match our description, then bring your Holy Book Torah, read it from the beginning to its end. If you find this allegation anywhere in it that these things were forbidden also in the Divine Law of Abraham (peace be upon him), then show us”. How strange is it that they could not show any verse even from their altered and mutilated book. Even then, they still stood opposite.  

It is known from the historians that the Jews did not accept this challenge of the Holy Qur’-aan, and how could they accept it, while their claim was baseless. Neither they had the real knowledge, and nor they could maintain actual instructions at their right place.

Allah Almighty affirmed, “If you would not be able to show any such order then it means that you are inventing a falsehood concerning God for nothing. You have been misinforming the people at the name of Divine Law of the religion. You invent sayings on your own behalf and attribute them with Holy Books and the religion. Committing such deeds will be counted as unjust and tyrannies. It is the fact that no tyranny can be too big in this world that someone adjudges his own sayings as commanded by God Almighty, being humankind; one begins to claim for him as divinity. The persons, who do such acts, go astray; not only they but they also provide the ground for depravity of other creation of Allah Almighty.
