Favors of Allah unto the Jews

Surah MAAA-‘IDAH (The Table Spread) – Chapter – 5)

‘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.)
                                                                               
 وَإِذْ قَالَ مُوسَىٰ لِقَوْمِهِۦ يَٰقَوْمِ ٱذْكُرُوا۟نِعْمَةَ ٱللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذْ جَعَلَ فِيكُمْ أَنۢبِيَآءَ وَجَعَلَكُم مُّلُوكًا وَءَاتَىٰكُم مَّا لَمْ يُؤْتِ أَحَدًا مِّنَ ٱلْعَٰلَمِينَ (20

  يَٰقَوْمِ ٱدْخُلُوا۟ ٱلْأَرْضَٱلْمُقَدَّسَةَ ٱلَّتِى كَتَبَ ٱللَّهُ لَكُمْ وَلَا تَرْتَدُّوا۟ عَلَىٰٓ أَدْبَارِكُمْ فَتَنقَلِبُوا۟ خَٰسِرِينَ (21

20.  And (remember) when Moses said unto his people: O my people! Remember Allah’s Favour unto you, how He placed among you Prophets, and He made you kings, and gave you that (which) He gave not to any (other) of (His) creatures.

21.  O my people! Go into the Holy Land which Allah hath ordained for you; turn not in flight, for surely ye turn back as losers.     
20.  Wa  ‘iz  qaala  Muusaa  li-qawmihii  yaa-qawmiz-kuruu  ni’-matAllaahi  ‘alaykum  ‘iz  ja-‘ala  fiikum  ‘ambi-yaaa-‘a  wa  ja-‘alakum-muluukanw-wa  ‘aataakum-maa  lam  yu’-ti  ‘ahadam-minal-‘aalamiin.

21.  Yaa-qawmid-khulul-‘Arzal-Muqaddasa-tallatii  kata-bAllaahu  lakum  wa  laa  tartadduu  ‘alaaa  ‘adbaarikum  fatan-qalibuu  khaasiriin.          

    Commentary

Yaa-qawmi – (O my people),

Muluukan - (kings), this word is plural of malik, which means “a king”.

‘Al-‘Arzal-Muqaddasa-ta – it aims ‘the countries – Syria and Palestine’, where many Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon Them) were sent by Allah Almighty. Every span of this earth is full of sacred marks and monuments. 

Laa  tartadduu – (do not turn), it is from ir-tadaad, which has been made from raddun. Radd means ‘to return’, Ir-tadaad – means ‘to turn from’. 

Adbaar – it is plural of dabar, which means ‘the back’. 

Khaasiriin – (losers), it is plural of khaasir, which is from khasaaraa. Khasaaraa means loss.

Allah Almighty reminds the People of the Scripture in these verses, up to the end of this section, about His favors, which He bestowed upon them. Intent to tell this again and again is that they should not disobey too much Merciful Lord and follow His Messenger, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), so that they may be triumphant in the both worlds. Along with it, the Muslims have been taught that they should never be arrogant in such a manner with Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) as the Jews did with their Messenger, Moses (peace be upon Him), so that they may be saved from those punishments and disasters, which the Jews had to face due to their own wickedness.
