Quran Chapter 5 – 64a (Pt-6, Stg-2) (L-709) - درس قرآن 

Rudeness of the Jews

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.)

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

64. وَقَالَتِ ٱلْيَهُودُ يَدُ ٱللَّهِ مَغْلُولَةٌ ۚ غُلَّتْ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَلُعِنُوا۟ بِمَا قَالُوا۟ ۘ بَلْ يَدَاهُ مَبْسُوطَتَانِ يُنفِقُ كَيْفَ يَشَآءُ ۚ وَلَيَزِيدَنَّ كَثِيرًا مِّنْهُم مَّآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِن رَّبِّكَ طُغْيَٰنًا وَكُفْرًا ۚ

64a.  The Jews say: Allah’s Hand is fettered. Their hands be fettered and they may be accursed for saying so. Nay, but both His Hands are spread out wide in Bounty. He bestoweth as He will. That which hath been revealed unto thee from thy Lord is certain to increase the contumacy and disbelief of many of them,
64a.  Wa  qaalatil-Yahuudu  YadUllaahi  magluulah.  Gullat  ‘ay-diihim  wa  lu-‘inuu  bimaa  qaaluu.  Bal  Yadaahu  mab-suuta-taani,  yunfiqu  kayfa  yashaaa’.  Wa  la-yaziidanna  kasiiram-minhum-maaa  ‘unzila    ‘ilayka  mir-Rabbika  tug-yaananw-wa  kufraa. 

Commentary

Magluulatun – (fettered, chained), it is from gullun, which means “to tie, to fasten”. It aims that Allah Almighty (Let us flee to God, Na-‘uuzu Billaah) is ‘a miser’.

Gullat – (are fettered), this word is also from gullun and it is a curse for them. It means that their hands should be fettered. It is like a proverb that “showing one’s displeasure to that person, who displeased the one”. Any sign of curse is not necessary if any person is cursed by any human being, but if Allah Almighty say “Kun” that is, without any delay “Fayakuun”.

Lu-‘inuu – (they may be accursed), it is from la’-nat, which means ‘a curse’. It is affect of above mentioned both curses that the Jews are miser as well as cursed too.

The Jews had lost their wits so much that they used to begin speaking the arrogantly words in the Grace of Allah Almighty. Such a matter was described also in Surah ‘Aali-‘Imraan. It was described there that when they are said, “Spend your property for the Sake of God, pay the poor-due and give the alms, and consider it as you are lending Allah Almighty. He will return you twofold, threefold or more in its retaliation. These people are so outspoken that they begin to say, “Allah is (let us flee to God) a beggar and we are rich, hence He begs from us to borrow Him”.

In this verse, it has been explained that they begin to talk nonsense, by observing the Muslims that they have been improving and increasing, but their own condition decreasing day by day, so they say, “(Na-‘uuzu Billaah) Allah’s Hand is fettered and He is a niggard (let is flee to God) in giving us”. Allah Almighty commands, “Talking so, you are cursed and you irritate Him. Actually you are misers. Both His Hands are spread out wide. One Hand is of Bounty and the other of His wrath. Your ancestors were under His Hand of Bounty due to their obedience and abstinence, whereas you have been under His other Hand of wrath due to your wickedness and disobedience, and collecting His curses due to wicked deeds and tricks”.
