Quran Chapter 5 – 73 & 74 (Pt-6, Stg-2) (L-720) - درس قرآن 

Considering - Godhead of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, is infidelity

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.)

73. لَّقَدْ كَفَرَ ٱلَّذِينَ قَالُوٓا۟ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ ثَالِثُ ثَلَٰثَةٍ ۘ وَمَا مِنْ إِلَٰهٍ إِلَّآ إِلَٰهٌ وَٰحِدٌ ۚ وَإِن لَّمْ يَنتَهُوا۟ عَمَّا يَقُولُونَ لَيَمَسَّنَّ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ مِنْهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ

74. أَفَلَا يَتُوبُونَ إِلَى ٱللَّهِ وَيَسْتَغْفِرُونَهُۥ ۚ وَٱللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ

73.  They surely disbelieve who say: Lo! Allah is the third of three. And there is no God save the One God. And if they desist not from so saying, a painful doom will fall on those of them who disbelieve.

74.  Will they not rather turn unto Allah and seek forgiveness of Him? For Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
73.  Laqad  kafa-rallaziina  qaaluuu  ‘innAllaaha  Saa-lisu-Salaa-sah.  Wa  maa  min  ‘ilaahin  ‘illaaa  ‘Ilaaahunw-Waahid.  Wa  ‘illam  yan-tahuu  ‘ammaa  yaquuluuna  la-yamassan-nallaziina  kafaruu  minhum  ‘azaabun  ‘aliim.

74.  ‘Afalaa  yatuubuuna  ‘ilAllaahi  wa  yas-tagfiruu-nah.  WAllaahu  Gafuurur-Rahiim.


Saa-lisu-Salaa-satin – (the third of three), in the collection of three things, everything is third of the whole. As per Arabic language, salaa-satin means three. Saalisun means ‘the third’. So, the Salaa-satin is three and every Saa-lisun is ‘the third’. Therefore, meaning is the same if either it is translated as ‘one of the three’ or ‘the third of the three’.

La-yamassan-na - (will fall on), it is from mass, which means ‘to touch’. The thing, which will touch the body, surely that shall reach the body, so it has been translated as ‘will fall on’.

There is a class of the Christians, which has been described in this verse. They speak an astonishing and entangled thing, “God is one of the three”. Detail of ‘the three’ is either:

1.      God (Almighty), Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) and Ruh-ul Quds (the Holy Spirit),

2.      Or, God (Almighty), Jesus Christ and Mary (peace be upon them). It means that “two other bodies are required for completion of a God and the belief remains incomplete without having belief in them”.

These people have also been fixed as the disbelievers, in this verse, because God (Allah Almighty) is Perfect (Himself), neither any other thing makes Him complete, and nor is He needy of any other body. He is the Worshipped Alone.

Then Allah Almighty Commands, “Why do they not repent of their sins and these absurdities before Allah Almighty, and cause to absolve their errors from Him? He is Forgiving and Merciful.
