Retribution of the sins - Quran Chapter 5 – 71 (Pt-6, Stg-2) (L-718) - درس قرآن

Quran Chapter 5 – 71 (Pt-6, Stg-2) (L-718) - درس قرآن 

Retribution of the sins

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.)

71. وَحَسِبُوٓا۟ أَلَّا تَكُونَ فِتْنَةٌ فَعَمُوا۟ وَصَمُّوا۟ ثُمَّ تَابَ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيْهِمْ ثُمَّ عَمُوا۟ وَصَمُّوا۟ كَثِيرٌ مِّنْهُمْ ۚ وَٱللَّهُ بَصِيرٌۢ بِمَا يَعْمَلُونَ

71.  They thought no harm would come of it, so they were willfully blind and deaf; and afterward Allah turned (in mercy) toward them. Now (even after that) are many of them willfully blind and deaf. And Allah is Seer of what they do.
71.  wa  hasibuuu  ‘allaa  takuuna  fit-natun  fa-‘amuu  wa    sam-muu  summa  taabAllaahu  ‘alayhim  summa  ‘amuu  wa  sammuu  kasiirum-minhum.  WAllaahu  Basiirum-bimaa  ya’-maluun.


It was described earlier that there are three necessary matters for the deliverance of human being:

  1. Believe in Allah Almighty. It is sure that if one will believe in Him, he/she shall recognize His last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) too.

  1. Believe in the Day of the Resurrection.

  1. Do good.

The person, who will act upon these three deeds, will be able to acquire deliverance.

Allah Almighty made it covenant of old with the Children of Israel. But they forgot this covenant by degrees and disobeyed Allah Almighty. An open sign of which is that they adjudged about His Messengers that they (peace be upon Them) were liars and many of Them were slain by them. Condition of their belief and good works has been known from it. If they were believers then they would not have disobeyed Allah Almighty, and if they were righteous then they would not have slain the Messengers (peace be upon Them) of Allah Almighty.

It has been explained in this verse that instead of believing in the Day of Resurrection and confuting the punishment against bad deeds, they, on the contrary, fixed in their hearts this thought, “Do whatever you wish, you will be OK”.

Therefore, they gave up hearing the well doers and became willfully blind and deaf. Allah Almighty imposed upon them worldly punishment, Bukht Nasar attacked, ruined their country and after imprisoning, brought them to Babel City. When they got away from this misfortune painfully, they repented. Allah Almighty accepted their supplication but after a few days, their new generation adopted the same behavior and involved in evils with the cession of mind. And then again, they were willfully blind and deaf. It is true that the desires of a mankind make him willfully blind and deaf. But you should not consider that you will never be seized due to evil deeds. You can be willfully blind but Allah Almighty has been observing your all movements. Where will you go being saved from His Sight?
