Quran Chapter 5 – 60 (Pt-6, Stg-2) (L-706) - درس قرآن 

Hateful matters

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.)

60. قُلْ هَلْ أُنَبِّئُكُم بِشَرٍّ مِّن ذَٰلِكَ مَثُوبَةً عِندَ ٱللَّهِ ۚ مَن لَّعَنَهُ ٱللَّهُ وَغَضِبَ عَلَيْهِ وَجَعَلَ مِنْهُمُ ٱلْقِرَدَةَ وَٱلْخَنَازِيرَ وَعَبَدَ ٱلطَّٰغُوتَ ۚ أُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ شَرٌّ مَّكَانًا وَأَضَلُّ عَن سَوَآءِ ٱلسَّبِيلِ

60.  Shall I tell thee of a worse (case) than theirs for retribution with Allah? (Worse is the case of him) whom Allah hath cursed, him on whom His wrath hath fallen and of whose sort Allah hath turned some to apes and swine, and who serveth the Devil. Such are in worse plight and further astray from the straight path.
60.  Qul  hal  ‘unabbi-‘ukum  bi-sharrim-min-  zaalika  masuubatan  ‘indAllaah.  Malla-‘anaHUllaahu  wa  gaziba  ‘alayhi  wa  ja-‘ala  min-humul-qiradata  wal-khanaaziira  wa  ‘abadat-Taaguut.  ‘Ulaaa-‘ika  sharrum-makaananw-wa  ‘azallu  ‘an  sawaaa-‘is-sabiil.


Masuubatan is another form of Sawaab (Reward), which means “Retaliation of any good or bad deed”. Here it signifies towards “retaliation of evil deed and its punishment”. 

Khanaaziira – it is plural of Khinziir, which means “a swine”.

It was instructed to the Muslims in the previous verse that they should say to the Jews: We have believed in Allah Almighty and all the Scriptures sent by Him. From those Scriptures, Holy Qur’aan is one, which is ours. And maximum people of you are disobedient and refractory. Your decision, that the Believers are worse and deserve punishment, is as slaying the justice and entirely opposite to the fact.
Allah Almighty commands in this verse: Say to the Jews! If you say, we can tell you about those from the both, who are worse and deserve worse retribution? We do not declare the names of those, but there are some signs. The peoples of which party contain those signs, are worse and they deserve punishment.

It is commanded: Those people, whom Allah Almighty has cursed, on whom His wrath has fallen and some of whom were turned to apes and swine in the past, they are worse and deserve retaliation.

The person, who is found with these evils, has been fallen from the grade of humanity and has gone back from the Straight Path. That person is hateful and should be punished properly.

The Jews themselves and the persons, who were aware of their history, they all were acquainted that these all matters are applicable to them (the Jews). They were cursed by Allah Almighty and His wrath fell down on them too. From them some were turned to apes and swine, and they were also from the Jews, who became worshippers of a calf by following Satan. We have discussed all these matters in Surah ‘Al-Baqarah.
