Quran Chapter 5 – 87 & 88 (Pt-7, Stg-2) (L-730) - درس قرآن 

Forbid not the good things which are lawful

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.)

87. يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ لَا تُحَرِّمُوا۟ طَيِّبَٰتِ مَآ أَحَلَّ ٱللَّهُ لَكُمْ وَلَا تَعْتَدُوٓا۟ ۚ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ ٱلْمُعْتَدِينَ

88. وَكُلُوا۟ مِمَّا رَزَقَكُمُ ٱللَّهُ حَلَٰلًا طَيِّبًا ۚ وَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ ٱلَّذِىٓ أَنتُم بِهِۦ مُؤْمِنُونَ

87.  O ye who believe! Forbid not the good things which Allah hath made lawful for you, and transgress not. Lo! Allah loveth not transgressors.

88.  And eat of that which Allah hath bestowed on you as food lawful and good, and keep your duty to Allah in Whom ye are believers.
87.  Yaaa-‘ayyu-hallaziina  ‘aamanuu  laa  tu-harrimuu  tayyibaati  maaa  ‘ahallAllaahu  lakum  wa  laa  ta’-taduu.  ‘InnAllaaha  laa  yuhibbul-mu’-tadiin.

88.  Wa  kuluu  mimmaa  razaqa-kumUllaahu  halaalan-tayyibaa.  Watta-qUllaahallaziii  ‘antum  bihii  Mu’-minuun.

Holy Qur’aan desires to show the people Straight Path, so that they may adapt their lives, adopt those things which are useful and give up those habits and things, which are harmful. Thus there are commands as well as prohibitions too in Its verses. ‘Amr means command, order to do good acts, and Nahii means ‘prevention from doing evil deeds’.

At some places, these commands and prohibitions have been described very clearly, and at other places, circumstances and events of other people have been mentioned in such a manner that if we think about them, then we can know, “We should choose their good manners and see off evil deeds like the wicked, by meditating in the consequence of mischief people”.

The Jews have this badness that they are careless from the religion and follow their wishes, whereas the Christians have included many new conceptions in their religion and consider them also part of their religion.

Allah Almighty commands, “Eat of that, which Allah Almighty has bestowed on you as food lawful and good, and keep yourselves bound in the fixed limits of your religion without any increase or decrease”.

The Jews settled unlawful things as lawful for themselves and committed that what they wished. At the other hand, the Christians gave up even the lawful things, and became dervish and monk. You should be saved from this type of inflation and deflation, fear from Allah Almighty and keep your duty to Him, obey His commands in Whom you believe, and do not decide according to your own will.
