Quran Chapter 5 – 80 & 81 (Pt-6, Stg-2) (L-724) - درس قرآن 

Friendship of Disbelievers

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.)

80. تَرَىٰ كَثِيرًا مِّنْهُمْ يَتَوَلَّوْنَ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ ۚ لَبِئْسَ مَا قَدَّمَتْ لَهُمْ أَنفُسُهُمْ أَن سَخِطَ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيْهِمْ وَفِى ٱلْعَذَابِ هُمْ خَٰلِدُونَ

81. وَلَوْ كَانُوا۟ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِٱللَّهِ وَٱلنَّبِىِّ وَمَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْهِ مَا ٱتَّخَذُوهُمْ أَوْلِيَآءَ وَلَٰكِنَّ كَثِيرًا مِّنْهُمْ فَٰسِقُونَ

80.  Thou seest many of them making friends with those who disbelieve. Surely ill for them is that which they themselves send on before them; that Allah will be wroth with them and in the doom they will abide for ever.

81.  If they had believed in Allah and the Prophet and that which is revealed unto Him, they would have not taken them for their friends. But many of them are of evil conduct.
80.  Taraa  kasiiram-minhum  yata-wallaw-nallaziina  kafaruu.  Labi’-sa  maa qaddamat  lahum    ‘anfusahum  ‘an-  sakhi-tAllaahu  ‘alayhim  wa  fil-‘azaabi  hum  khaaliduun.

81.  Wa  law  kaanuu  yu’-minuuna  BIllaahi  wan-Nabiyyi  wa  maaa  ‘unzila  ‘ilayhi  mattakhazuuhum  ‘awliyaaa-‘a  wa  laakinna  kasiiram-minhum  faasiquun.

It was described in the previous lesson that wicked deeds had become prevalent in the Children of Israel. After observing their such condition, David and then Jesus (peace be upon them) cursed them. They continued hostility also against the last Messenger of Allah Almighty, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) during His time.

It has been commanded in this verse that these people have been opposing them still, who are going straight path and they are making friends to those who went astray. They do not understand that it is a very bad act that they provided ground to spread the wickedness and to efface the good deeds. Wrath of Allah Almighty will be descended upon them in the world and on the Doomsday in its punishment.
Then Allah Almighty says, “If they had belief in Allah, His Messengers and Prophets (peace be upon them) and Their Scriptures, then they would have never taken the wicked people, infidels and them for their friends, who are of evil conduct. But these people are very strict disobedient. So we knew from it that actually they do not believe in Allah Almighty and His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). 

We should think now, “Whether these evils have not entered also into us, which were in the Jews? Is our Belief correct”? Sign of its fairness is that “friendship with the good people and cut off relationship from the evil doers”. Whether we have this beauty? Do we have this? If not, then its remedy is compulsory.
