Quran Chapter 5 – 91 (Pt-7, Stg-2) (L-734) - درس قرآن 

Depravities of strong drink and games of chance

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.)

91. إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ ٱلشَّيْطَٰنُ أَن يُوقِعَ بَيْنَكُمُ ٱلْعَدَٰوَةَ وَٱلْبَغْضَآءَ فِى ٱلْخَمْرِ وَٱلْمَيْسِرِ وَيَصُدَّكُمْ عَن ذِكْرِ ٱللَّهِ وَعَنِ ٱلصَّلَوٰةِ ۖ فَهَلْ أَنتُم مُّنتَهُونَ

91.  Satan seeketh only to cast among you enmity and hatred by means of strong drink and games of chance, and to turn you from Remembrance of Allah and from (His) worship. Will ye then desist?
91.  ‘Innamaa  yuriidush-Shaytaanu  ‘any-yuuqi-‘a  bayna-kumul-‘adaawata  wal-bagzaaa-‘a  fil-khamri  wal-maysiri  wa  yasuddakum  ‘an-zikrIllaahi  wa  ‘anis-Salaah.  Fahal  ‘antum-mun-tahuun.


The worst badness in strong drink and games of chance is that these both habits are very helpful for stopping the human being from that path, which takes responsibility of humankind’s goodness, and on which the Holy Qur’aan desires to carry on him. Because Satan (who remains in search of paths to mislead the mankind) becomes able to find many ways to get the upper hands over the human being.

Islam disciplines the mankind dwelling collectively, and desires to stop mutual quarrels and disturbance. Greed, selfishness and evil wishes are ground of sedition mutually themselves. Islam has produced the way of its prevention, “Believe in Allah Almighty, remember Him every time and assemble at a place five times a day, only for the purpose that you may remember Allah Almighty collectively, so that along with the remembrance of Allah Almighty, you may think that you all are servants of Allah Almighty. And that Allah Almighty has commanded you to sympathize mutually with one another. Everyone should provide advantage to others, from that thing, which someone possesses. Nobody should follow the wish of collecting the money more and more by ensnaring others in labor and trouble. One should not be selfish, miserly and niggardly at the time of dealing with other people. Strong drink and games of chance (both) are enemies of these entire matters. These both habits make a mankind selfish, greedy and sensualist, and excite to do those deeds which become foundation of mutual quarrels and mischief. All wise people will agree to it that strong drink and games of chance are actual roots of enmity, quarrels and brawl. It is surprising that they know but do not give them up.
