Quran Chapter 5 – 41b (Pt-6, Stg-2) (L-683) - درس قرآن 

Stratagem of Infidelity

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.)

يُحَرِّفُونَ ٱلْكَلِمَ مِنۢ بَعْدِمَوَاضِعِهِۦ يَقُولُونَ إِنْ أُوتِيتُمْ هَٰذَا فَخُذُوهُ وَإِن لَّمْ تُؤْتَوْهُ فَٱحْذَرُوا۟ (41   b)

41b.  Changing words from their contexts and saying: If this be given unto you, receive it, but if this be not given unto you, then beware!
41b.  Yuharrifuunal-kalima  mim-  ba’-di  mawaazi-‘ih.  Yaquuluuna  ‘in  ‘uutiitum  haazaa  fakhu-zuuhu  wa  ‘illam  tu’-tawhu  fah-zaruu.


Yuharrifuuna – this word is from tah-riif, which means “to change, to remove”. 

The disbelievers, the hypocrites and those, whose belief is weak, pursue in this attempt, “Change that command of Allah Almighty according to own object, which seems against own desire”. But the belief does not permit it. Prophet Moses (peace be upon Him) brought Torah unto the Jews, but those people changed the words and meanings of the Scripture to fulfill their own wishes, for example; in Torah, the punishment of fornication by any married adulterer and adulteress was stoning. The Jews removed this command totally. Those Jews, who did not see the Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), said them, who used to meet the Messenger, “You should ask the punishment of fornication from this Messenger. If He says that stoning is not punishment of fornication, then we shall be able to misguide the people that He is also with us in the denial of stoning. But if He keeps up the punishment of stoning, then you should not listen to Him” (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him). As if, it is making the religion like one’s own wish. But Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) said, “The punishment of stoning is held in Torah” and a Jew scholar was made witness upon it,

On the other side Allah Almighty sent Angel Gabriel (peace be upon Him), who conveyed His message, “Keep up the punishment of stoning, because the object is to stop the fornication strongly. Big badness becomes public due to it.

These were those tricks, with which the Jews and other people had wished to break the restrictions of the religion, to get freedom of committing the crimes, tyranny and oppression. The Messenger of Allah Almighty has been commanded in this verse that He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) should do His duty and not grieve due to the deeds of the supporters of infidelity; at last the mischievous people would have to be pressed down.
Woe is me! at that time those people were pressed and remained under pressure for a long time, but then even the Muslims also became the slaves of desires and were entangled in the same badness, in which the Jews and the Hypocrites had been entangling, and they were punished in the same manner.
