Quran Chapter 5 – 62 & 63 (Pt-6, Stg-2) (L-708) - درس قرآن 

Scholars should prevent others from evil

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.)

62. وَتَرَىٰ كَثِيرًا مِّنْهُمْ يُسَٰرِعُونَ فِى ٱلْإِثْمِ وَٱلْعُدْوَٰنِ وَأَكْلِهِمُ ٱلسُّحْتَ ۚ لَبِئْسَ مَا كَانُوا۟ يَعْمَلُونَ

63. لَوْلَا يَنْهَىٰهُمُ ٱلرَّبَّٰنِيُّونَ وَٱلْأَحْبَارُ عَن قَوْلِهِمُ ٱلْإِثْمَ وَأَكْلِهِمُ ٱلسُّحْتَ ۚ لَبِئْسَ مَا كَانُوا۟ يَصْنَعُونَ

62.  And thou seest many of them vying one with another in sin and transgression and their devouring of illicit gain. Verily evil is what they do.

63.  Why do not the Rabbis and the priests forbid their evil-speaking and their devouring of illicit gain? Verily evil is their handiwork.
62.  Wa  taraa  kasiiram-minhum  yusaari-‘uuna  fil-‘ismi  wal-‘udwaani  wa  ‘aklihimus-suht.  La-bi’-sa  maa  kaanuu  ya’-maluun.

63.  Law-laa  yanhaa-humur-Rabbaa-niyyuuna  wal-‘ahbaaru  ‘an-  qawlihimul-‘isma  wa  ‘akli-himus-suht.  Labi’-sa  maa  kaanuu  yasna-‘uun.


Allah Almighty commands that the scholars and educated persons are responsible for the sins and oppression of the common people. He says, “You see many people of them vie one with another in sins and transgression rapidly. They trouble and press them unjust, devour forcibly by snatching the earned property of the necessitous people, because there is a common practice of usury and interest with them, and that can be gotten only from the needy people.

It is revealed that reaping advantage from the need of any needy person unlawfully is contrary to the humanity and the money earned likewise is unlawful. Why do not their Scholars, Rabbis and the priests forbid their evil-speaking and their devouring of illicit gain? Actual badness in the Jews was the same that the rich used to do what they wished, and their Rabbis and priests used to enjoy more than them by taking bribe from them, and in its retaliation, they used to enjoin the unlawful matters as lawful, which were useful for the rich people. It was the reason that the religion was deteriorated and the only purpose of life was “Fill your own homes and enjoy yourselves well by tyrannizing the poor.
