The People of the Scripture mistook

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.)

65. وَلَوْ أَنَّ أَهْلَ ٱلْكِتَٰبِ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَٱتَّقَوْا۟ لَكَفَّرْنَا عَنْهُمْ سَيِّـَٔاتِهِمْ وَلَأَدْخَلْنَٰهُمْ جَنَّٰتِ ٱلنَّعِيمِ

66. وَلَوْ أَنَّهُمْ أَقَامُوا۟ ٱلتَّوْرَىٰةَ وَٱلْإِنجِيلَ وَمَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْهِم مِّن رَّبِّهِمْ لَأَكَلُوا۟ مِن فَوْقِهِمْ وَمِن تَحْتِ أَرْجُلِهِم ۚ مِّنْهُمْ أُمَّةٌ مُّقْتَصِدَةٌ ۖ وَكَثِيرٌ مِّنْهُمْ سَآءَ مَا يَعْمَلُونَ

65.  If only the People of the Scripture would believe and ward off (evil), surely We should remit their sins from them and surely We should bring them into Gardens of Delight.

66.  If they had observed the Torah and the Gospel and that which was revealed unto them from their Lord, they would surely have been nourished from above them and from beneath their feet. Among them there are people who   are moderate. But many of them are of evil conduct.
65.  Wa  law  ‘anna  ‘Ahlal-Kitaabi  ‘aamanuu  wattaqaw  lakaffarNaa  ‘anhum  sayyi-‘aatihim  wa  la-‘ad-khal-Naahum  Jannaatin-Na-‘iim.

66.  Wa  law  ‘annahum  ‘aqaamut-Tawraata  wal-‘Injiila  wa  maaa  ‘unzila  ‘ilay-him-mir-Rabbihim  la-‘akaluu  min-  fawqihim  wa  min  tahti  ‘arjulihim.  Minhum  ‘ummatum-muq-tasi-dah.  Wa  kasiirum-minhum  saaa-‘a  maa  ya’-maluun.


From the very earlier, mention of those people is under discussion, who opposed Islam in the beginning. At first, Arabian tribes of Makkah were against Islam who were idolaters openly. After that, when the Jews and the Christians knew, they began to support the idolaters of Makkah also to suppress Islam. This support was very useful for the idolaters, and the Muslims had to face many difficulties due to them.

It is known by meditating in that, which the history of those days produces, that there was no any main reason of opposing Islam except that the people had forgotten thinking about the advantages and comforts of others but for their own worldly gains and ease. Everyone desired to keep entire wealth and power of the world in his own depot. On the contrary, Islam wished to teach that worldly wealth, power and property is useful for the entire human beings. None is owner of anything but Allah Almighty and the entire humankind are His servants, so nobody can deprive of others by taking entire things in one’s own possession. The person, who will try to do so, is enemy of Allah Almighty.
