Quran Chapter 5 – 23b & 24 (Pt-6, Stg-2) (L-664) - درس قرآن 

Those succeed who are courageous

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.)


(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)
 فَإِذَا دَخَلْتُمُوهُ فَإِنَّكُمْ غَٰلِبُونَ وَعَلَى ٱللَّهِ فَتَوَكَّلُوٓا۟ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ (23  b

  قَالُوا۟ يَٰمُوسَىٰٓإِنَّا لَن نَّدْخُلَهَآ أَبَدًا مَّا دَامُوا۟ فِيهَا فَٱذْهَبْ أَنتَ وَرَبُّكَ فَقَٰتِلَآ إِنَّا هَٰهُنَا قَٰعِدُونَ (24

23b.  for if ye enter by it, lo! ye will be victorious. And put your trust (in Allah) if ye are indeed believers.

24.  They said: O Moses! We will never enter (the land) while they are in it, so go thou and thy Lord and fight! We will sit here. 
23b.  Fa-‘izaa  dakhaltumuuhu  fa-‘innakum  gaalibuun.  Wa  ‘alAllaahi  fatawakkaluu  ‘in-kuntum-Mu’-miniin.

24.  Qaaluu  yaa-Muusaaa  ‘innaa  lan-nad-khulahaaa  ‘abadam-maa  daamuu  fiihaa  fazhab  ‘anta  wa  Rabbuka  faqaatilaaa  ‘innaa  haa-hunaa  qaa-‘iduun.          


Conversation of two commanders from the Children of Israel, which had begun in the previous lesson, has been completed in this verse. They said, “If you enter the city and are collected in crowds, then certainly you will be victorious. You claim that you are believers. You should put your trust only in Allah Almighty because the believers neither fear anyone but Allah Almighty and nor trust in anyone save Him”. The names of those two commanders were “Yuusha’ son of Noon” and “Kaalib son of Yuuhannaa”.

Those two persons were not influenced after viewing the demon type people of Syria. They had trust in the support of Allah Almighty. Their hearts were strong because they were aware, “The person, who obeys Allah Almighty and dwells exactly in accordance with His orders, Allah Almighty shall help him. He has commanded us to enter the city of Imaalqah (Syria) and strike those giant people out from the city. Now it is our duty that we should make violent attack upon them quite fearlessly according to the direct order of Allah Almighty. He shall give us a victory upon them. We should contemplate only towards Allah Almighty. He is the most Powerful and Strong. None has any power against Him. Most strong persons have no authority before Him and the weak overcome upon the powerful and giant people with His help.

But the nation of Prophet Moses (peace be upon Him) did not hear sayings of those commanders and replied, “O Moses! We will never enter that land while those giant people are in it, so go you and your Lord and fight! We will sit here”. It is easy to conjecture from their answer that how much the Children of Israel had become rude, obstinate and ill-behaved.
