Conspiracies against God’s Messenger
Suratun-Nisaaa’ (The Women) – Chapter – 4)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
81. And they say: (It is) obedience; but when they have gone forth from thee a party of them spend the night in planning other than what thou sayest. And Allah recordeth what they plan by night. So ignore them and put thy trust in Allah. And Allah is Sufficient as Trustee.
81. Wa yaquuluuna Taa-‘ah; fa-‘izaa barazuu min ‘indika bayyata taaa-‘ifatum-minhum gayrallazii taquul. Wallaahu yak-tubu maa yu-bayyituun. Fa-‘a’-riz ‘anhum wa ta-wakkal ‘alAllaah. Wa kafaa Billaahi Wakiilaa.
Taa-‘atun - (obedience), if after hearing any order from some, it is said! Taa-‘atun, it will be meant: I agreed, I admitted or I believed.
bayyatun - this word has come out from bayaat, which means “night”. Tabayyat means “to work at night”. Here it aims “asking advice of others at night”.
‘A’-riz - this word is from ‘a’-raaz, which means “to ignore, to turn away, not to care”. It is a token of negligence, inattention.
Another artifice of the hypocrites has been narrated in this verse. When they used to hear the Sayings of the Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), they used to say before him (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), “We have admitted, accepted or agreed to your entire commands wholeheartedly and our duty is to obey you”. But when they used to get out from the company of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), then they used to plan secretly at night and bring to a conclusion that possibly they would never obey the Prophet ‘Muhammad’ (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) and oppose him as far as possible. Their outward and hidden are not equal. They backbite and do not do that, what they say. If they think that, they would continue deceiving the Muslims by making apparent lame excuses like this, and digging secretly their roots, then they are at wrong because this all secret planning (at nights) is being observed by Allah Almighty. He knows their entire wicked activities from the beginning to the end. This double-faced conduct of the hypocrites will not run more ahead and their fraud will be disclosed positively.
The obedience does not have the meaning that their tongues say, “Yes Sir, very well and all right”, but their hearts make up the mind to commit against it. After that; Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) is being commanded, “Trust in Allah Almighty. What He desires to do, does it properly. Neither He needs any help of someone, nor does He care for any opposite. He is Sufficient to complete all tasks. Believe in Him”.
After describing the double-faced policy (conspiracies and artifices) of the Hypocrites, Allah Almighty commanded to the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), “You should turn away from them and put your trust in Allah Almighty; because His Adroitness is Sufficient. Neither you are needy of anybody and nor progress of Islam is connected with any person”.
