Quran Chapter 5 – 49b & 50 (Pt-6, Stg-2) (L-695) - درس قرآن 

Avoidance from the Religion

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.)

وَإِنَّ كَثِيرًا مِّنَ ٱلنَّاسِلَفَٰسِقُونَ (49   b)

(50). أَفَحُكْمَ ٱلْجَٰهِلِيَّةِ يَبْغُونَ ۚ وَمَنْ أَحْسَنُ مِنَ ٱللَّهِ حُكْمًا لِّقَوْمٍ يُوقِنُونَ 

49b.  Lo! Many of mankind are evil-livers.

50.  Is it a judgment of the time of (pagan) ignorance that they are seeking? And who is better than Allah for judgment to a people who have certainty (in their belief)?
49b.    Wa  ‘inna  kasiiram-minan-naasi  lafaasi-quun.

50.  ‘Afa-hukmal-Jaahi-liyyati  yabguun.  Wa  man  ‘ah-sanu  minAllaahi  hukmal-li-qawminy-  yuu-qinuun.


Faasi-quun – (the evil-livers, the disobedient), it is plural of faasiq, which has been derived from fisq. Fisq means “to disobey, not to care the law, to act like immoral”.

Jaahi-liyyati – it is the time, in which no religion was admitted and the people used to take it as their right to suppress the weak on the basis of their power. Actual meaning of Jaahi-liyyat is “ignorance” and it is also called “jahal”. The difference between them is that the word Jaahi-liyyat has vast meanings i.e. such a condition, in which the rule of personal desires is followed instead of any law. Such era was before Islam, so, that period is called Jaahi-liyyati – “the time of (pagan) ignorance”.

It has been described that in fact maximum people are such, who wish to dwell free from all kinds of restrictions. Their cordial desire is that there should be no any such person, who prevents them from their any kind of deed. And they have power to do as they wish. By establishing a powerful group, they keep others under their own control and obedience, so that they are addicted to pleasure and nobody may argue them. These people are actually animals in the form of mankind. They desire paternal and maternal freedom like animals, and wild law as “Might is Right”.

Tell them, “It was then, when the human beings had forgotten the entire rules and regulations due to their wishes, and had ran far away from their reality i.e. humanity”. They know who study the history, about the condition of two biggest and famous emperors of Iran and Rome before Islam. The powerful people had suppressed the weak as the powerful were like lions and the weak were like cow, ox, sheep and goat etc. The rulers used to command their public like slaves, even that they caused to pull their carts like animals.
Allah Almighty commands, “Ask them - Is it a judgment of the time of (pagan) ignorance that you are seeking nowadays? Now there is no darkness like a night. A Light of the Religion has been revealed. The entire Laws of Divine has been described by the Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him). And it is clear that there is no command of anyone acceptable by the Believers before the Command of Allah Almighty. If those people, who are disbelievers, desire to obey someone else or their own wishes, then they will be punished by Allah Almighty very soon due to their evil deeds and disbelief.
