Evil-livers do not like the righteous - Quran Chapter 5 – 59 (Pt-6, Stg-2) (L-705) - درس قرآن

Quran Chapter 5 – 59 (Pt-6, Stg-2) (L-705) - درس قرآن 

Evil-livers do not like the righteous

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.)

59. قُلْ يَٰٓأَهْلَ ٱلْكِتَٰبِ هَلْ تَنقِمُونَ مِنَّآ إِلَّآ أَنْ ءَامَنَّا بِٱللَّهِ وَمَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْنَا وَمَآ أُنزِلَ مِن قَبْلُ وَأَنَّ أَكْثَرَكُمْ فَٰسِقُونَ

59.  Say: O People of the Scripture! Do ye blame us for aught else than   that we believe in Allah and that which is revealed unto us and that which was revealed aforetime, and verily most of you are evil-livers?
59.  Qul  yaaa-‘Ahlal-Kitaabi  hal  tanqi-muuna  minnaaa  ‘illaaa  ‘an  ‘aamannaa  BIllaahi  wa  maaa  ‘unzila  ‘ilaynaa  wa  maaa  ‘unzila  min  qablu,  wa  ‘anna  ‘ak-sarakum  faasi-quun.


Tanqi-muuna – (You blame us), it is from naqmat, which means “to find fault, to take someone in a bad sense”. It aims “You rage upon us”. It is apparent that blaming, abusing or troubling anyone by finding fault in his skill, is usually due to opposite thought. So the word tanqi-muuna has been translated as “blame”.

Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) of Allah Almighty and care of Him, other Muslims are being addressed in this verse that they should ask the People of the Scripture, “Why are you angry upon us? We have never said any such word, due to which, you became our enemy. Any new thing, which can be seen into us, is only that we have chosen Allah Almighty as our only Worshipped. We believe in Him wholeheartedly and consider that Holy Qur’aan is His true Scripture. As well as we believe in those all Scriptures, which were revealed before it, that those are true. Holy Qur’aan has also declared that those Holy Books were true and it has kept their original commands in order; either as those were or with a suitable change. Our duty is to obey and act upon those commands. On the contrary, which new thing has been observed into you; is that many people from you have become disobedient and they have gripped up their loins to disbelieve in the commands of their own Scripture. If they had believed in their commands, then it would have become compulsory for them to believe in the Holy Qur’aan, because they have been ordered in those commands that they should have to believe in the Last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) and His Scripture, Holy Qur’aan and obey their commandments. These are two different matters which are visible clearly between you and us i.e. we obey the commands of God Almighty, but you disobey. Is it good that you take our obedience in a bad sense and yours disobedience in a good sense and oppose us? If you don’t have enmity with us due to the reason that we are obedient of Allah Almighty, then you should explain before us! Which is other reason of bad relations among you and us?

If you will afflict us, then all Just people will say only that the Jews and the Christians dislike the Muslims because they serve and obey God Almighty.
