The Last Word of God (Holy Qur'an)

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.)

 وَأَنزَلْنَآ إِلَيْكَ ٱلْكِتَٰبَ بِٱلْحَقِّ مُصَدِّقًا لِّمَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ مِنَ ٱلْكِتَٰبِ وَمُهَيْمِنًا عَلَيْهِ فَٱحْكُم بَيْنَهُم بِمَآ أَنزَلَ ٱللَّهُوَلَا تَتَّبِعْ أَهْوَآءَهُمْ عَمَّا جَآءَكَ مِنَ ٱلْحَقِّ  (48  a)

48a.  And unto thee have We revealed the Scripture with the truth, confirming whatever Scripture was before it, and a watcher over it; so judge between them by that which Allah hath revealed, and follow not their low desires deviating from the truth which hath come unto thee.
48a.  Wa  ‘anzalNaaa  ‘ilaykal- Kitaaba    bil-haqqi  musaddiqalli-maa  bayna  yadayhi  minal- Kitaabi  wa  muhay-minan  ‘alayhi  fahkum- baynahum- bimaaa  ‘anza-lAllaahu  wa  laa  tatta-bi’  ‘ahwaaa- ‘ahum  ‘ammaa  jaaa-‘aka  minal-Haqq.


 When the Last Messenger of Allah Almighty, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) came to Madinah and the Muslims got strength due to gracing with the Messenger’s presence, then a great difficulty fell suddenly upon the Jews. Heretofore, they used to press the weak and judge their own and the mutual disputes as it used to come into their minds. Once, some respectable people came unto the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) from the tribe Banu Nazayr of the Jews. This tribe was very powerful. They had a strife against another tribe of the Jews named; Banu Qurayzah, who were weaker than them. Banu Nazayr said to the Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), “We shall become Muslims, if You judge our dispute with Banu Qurayzah in accordance with our will, and many other people will also embrace Islam due to our very powerful impression”.

The Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) replied, “I shall judge with equity. I don’t need such Muslims, who embrace Islam for their worldly desires”. At this occasion, these verses were revealed, in which, the behavior of the Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) was appreciated, and the mutual relationship between the Heavenly Scriptures was caused to understand thoroughly.

Allah Almighty commands, “After the Torah of Moses, the Psalms of David and the Gospel of Jesus (peace be upon Them), O Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him)! We have revealed unto You Holy Qur’aan with the truth, which is the last Scripture and which confirms all its former heavenly Scriptures, and the entire necessary commands have been added in it for the future generation of the mankind. So You should judge the strife among them according to the truth, correct rules and regulations which Allah Almighty has revealed, and which have come unto You by means of Holy Qur’aan, whether they are the Jews or the Christians or someone else, and follow not their low desires deviating from the truth”.

It has been described that the Holy Qur’aan is a watcher and a guard over the entire Scriptures revealed before it. Really, the person, who thinks in its Words, finds all useful affairs in it which are necessary for the humankind. If any rule has been prevailed, but that is on the contrary to the instructions of Holy Qur’aan, surely that is a deadly poison for the human being. If that is not given up, then its result would not be other than the destruction for the human being. It has been proven from the world’s experience.
