Quran Chapter 5 – 68 (Pt-6, Stg-2) (L-715) - درس قرآن 

Admonition again for the People of the Scripture

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.)

68. قُلْ يَٰٓأَهْلَ ٱلْكِتَٰبِ لَسْتُمْ عَلَىٰ شَىْءٍ حَتَّىٰ تُقِيمُوا۟ ٱلتَّوْرَىٰةَ وَٱلْإِنجِيلَ وَمَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكُم مِّن رَّبِّكُمْ ۗ وَلَيَزِيدَنَّ كَثِيرًا مِّنْهُم مَّآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِن رَّبِّكَ طُغْيَٰنًا وَكُفْرًا ۖ فَلَا تَأْسَ عَلَى ٱلْقَوْمِ ٱلْكَٰفِرِينَ

68.  Say: O People of the Scripture! Ye have naught (of guidance) till ye observe the Torah and the Gospel and that which was revealed unto you from   your Lord. And that which is revealed unto Thee (Muhammad) from Thy Lord is certain to increase the contumacy and disbelief of many of them. So grieve not for the disbelieving folk.
68.  Qul  yaaa-‘Ahlal-Kitaabi  las-tum  ‘alaa  shay-‘in  hattaa  tuqiimut-Tawraata  wal-‘Injiila  wa  maaa  ‘unzila  ‘ilaykum-mir-Rabbikum.  Wa  la-yazii-danna  kasiiram-min-hum-maaa  ‘unzila  ‘ilayka  mir-Rabbika  tugyaananw-wa  kufraa.  Falaa  ta’-sa  ‘alal-Qaw-mil-Kaafiriin.


It has been explained in this verse that it does not befit to the Jews and the Christians, who have been given the Scriptures like Torah and Gospel; that they disbelieve and associate with the Infidels. So, tell them again that they should act upon their own Scriptures. When they will obey the commandments of their own Scriptures, it will become incumbent for them to believe positively in Arabic Qur’aan and Arabic Messenger, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), because it is the Commandment of their own Scripture that they should obey the Last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him). They cannot be called at the Straight Path until they do not act upon their own Scripture.

Allah Almighty commands, “Tell the People of the Scripture that as far as they do not follow their own Scriptures till then they would continue going trackless and in a sprawling manner, because while they threw away their Scripture behind, then what would be more misfortune than it that they chose their wishes as their guide. It is a universal truth that any slave of wishes has no way to go ahead. He turned towards that direction, in which his wishes turned him.

These people do not understand that Holy Qur’aan is the best Summary of their own Scriptures and it is their duty to hold it fast quickly. But on the contrary, they have fallen in the persistency that “They would not have to do, what Qur’aan says”. Due to this stubbornness, Holy Qur’aan has become reason of their depravity due to their persistency and disregard, and their wickedness, obstinacy and infidelity increased so much.
