Helping one another unto righteousness

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.)

وَإِذَا حَلَلْتُمْ فَٱصْطَادُوا۟ وَلَا يَجْرِمَنَّكُمْ شَنَـَٔانُ قَوْمٍ أَن صَدُّوكُمْ عَنِ ٱلْمَسْجِدِ ٱلْحَرَامِ أَن تَعْتَدُوا۟ وَتَعَاوَنُوا۟ عَلَىٱلْبِرِّ وَٱلتَّقْوَىٰ وَلَا تَعَاوَنُوا۟ عَلَى ٱلْإِثْمِ وَٱلْعُدْوَٰنِ وَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ شَدِيدُ ٱلْعِقَابِ (2  b  

2b.  And when you have laid aside Ehraam, then go hunting (if ye will). And let not your hatred of a folk who (once) stopped your going to the Inviolable Place of Worship seduce you to transgress; but help ye one another unto righteousness and pious duty. And help not one another unto sin and transgression and keep your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is Severe in punishment.
2b.  Wa  ‘izaa  halaltum  fas-taaduu.  Wa  laa  yajri-mannakum  shana-‘aanu  qawmin  ‘an-sadduu-kum  ‘anil-Mas-jidil-Haraami  ‘an-ta’-taduu.  Wa  ta-‘aawanuu  ‘alalbirri  wat-taqwaa,  wa  laa  ta-‘aawanuu  ‘alal-‘ismi  wal-‘udwaan.  Watta-qUllaah.  ‘InnAllaaha  Shadiidul-‘iqaab.


Halaltum – (you have laid aside Ehraam), the things, which had become unlawful and forbidden to be used after tying Ehraam, now have become lawful. 

‘As-taaduu – (go hunting), now gaming has become lawful for you after your coming out from Ehraam, if you wish. 

‘A’-taduu – it has been derived from ‘ud-waan, which means ‘act of seducing’. 

’Atta-quu – it is from taqwaa, which means ‘keeping duty (to Allah), remaining away from the evil’.

In the previous verse, hunting of wild animals was forbidden in the form of Ehraam. After untying Ehraam, now it has become lawful to hunt. It is known very clearly from the afterwards Instructions that ‘how a best method is taught by Islam to the Muslims to treat other people’. First portion of this verse, which has been recited and explained in the previous lesson, guides, “Treat with respect the months of Hajj, do not prevent the people, nor molest them who come for performing Hajj or pilgrimage of the Inviolable Place “Ka’-bah” and preserve their collard animals (of sacrifice). The people of Makkah used to accept also these affairs, but their enmity so increased with Muslims that when they reached Makkah from Madinah for Pilgrimage (Umrah) of Inviolable Place (Ka’-bah), then the Infidels ignored all these instructions and prohibited the Muslims from entering into Makkah Mu-‘azmah. To be excited by Muslims was a very little and common thing. Therefore, at first those commandments were ordained, which have been determined necessary for performing Hajj and Pilgrimage (Umrah), so that the Muslims should care. And it has been described very clearly that you should neither violate nor commit any such crime, as the Makkan people did due to their enmity with you. Keep your every person off from boiling up. They should respect the sanctity of the Monuments of Allah Almighty and do not cross the limits.
