After describing about lawful and unlawful including the actual facts about the religion of Abraham (peace be upon him) in the previous verses, God Almighty said to His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him): Say! (O Muhammad – grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him)! Allah speaks the Truth.

94.  And whoever shall invent a falsehood after that concerning Allah, such will be wrongdoers. 93b.  Qul  fa’-tuu  bit-Tawraati  fatluuhaaa  ‘in- kuntum saadiqiin.       
94. Fa-manif-taraa  ‘alAllaahil-kaziba  mim- ba’-di  zaalika  fa-‘ulaaa-‘ika  humuz- zaalimuun . 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 Abra…

Surah ‘Aali ‘Imraan (The Family of Imran - 3), Stage – 1, Verse – 93a of 200, Section – 10 of 20, (Part – 4)
BisMIllaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim In the name ofGod, the Beneficent, the Merciful
93a.  All food was lawful unto the Children of Israel, save that which Israel forbade himself, (in days) before the Torah was revealed. 93a.  Kullut-ta-‘aami  kaana  hillalli- Baniii  ‘Israaa-‘iila  ‘illaa  maa  harrama  ‘Israaa-‘iilu  ‘alaa  nafsihii  min qabli  ‘an-tunaz-zalat-Tawraah. Lesson
Reason for revelation of this verse is that the Jews said to the Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), “You tell that you are at the Religion of Abraham (peace be upon him), but you eat those things, which were unlawful for the family of Abraham (peace be upon him), for instance; meat of the camel and its milk etc. How can you be a true follower of Abraham (peace be upon him) in this form? …

92.  Ye will not attain unto piety until ye spend of that which ye love. And whatsoever ye spend, Allah  is  Aware thereof. 92.  LAN-  TANAALUL-BIRRA  hattaa  tunfiquu  mimmaa  tuhib-buun.  Wa  maa  tunfiquu min- shay-‘in-  fa-‘innAllaaha bihii  ‘Aliim. Lesson
Sometimes a man hesitates to spend for piety due to the reason that he would have to sacrifice his favorite things. There are many such things in this mortal world, which are most beloved to him. Sometimes this love extends to the limit that he feels unpleasant to stay separate from them. The love of these things compels him to sacrifice everything for them. This love makes him blind and he loses the distinction among good and bad.
The life of human being passes in …

As it has been described with detail in the previous verses that after the arguing with the group ofNajraanand notwithstanding to believe heartily in the truth of the Messenger of God Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), the Christians did not believe. They used to calumniate that Allah Almighty has said a certain thing, so and so has been written in this Scripture, whereas, they used to concoct all these sayings personally at their own. Moreover, No Prophet or Messenger (peace be upon him) teaches against the commands of God Almighty. He [Prophet or Messenger (peace be upon him)] never comm…

Lesson
In this verse, such infidels and sinners have been admonished who think always that gold and silver (wealth and property) are the actual source of whole power and strength. Money covers the entire sins and conceals all the evils. They think that; as they are saved from punishment of their crimes by giving a bribe or ransom in this world, likewise they would be saved from the wrath of God Almighty by giving Him silver and gold as …

Lesson
Some more explanation has been made about repentance in this verse. Those persons who abashed due to wrongdoings and errors, if they repented and began doing good deeds; Allah Almighty will accept their repentance and forgive them.

Lesson
Those persons are not rightful to be forgiven in any condition, who (the wicked-doers and the sinners) have been described in the previous verses. However, God Almighty is Forgiving and Merciful. To Him, if any wrongdoer repents sincerely even after such severe errors and rebels, and intends to adopt good conduct in future, then his all errors are forgiven.
Allah Almighty has kept room of repentance for them and they have been given time that if they refrain from the wickedness, leave the evildoing and adopt the right path, then God Almighty will bestow them forg…
