Quran Chapter 5 – 94 (Pt-7, Stg-2) (L-737) - درس قرآن 

Test by Allah Almighty

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.)

94. يَٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ لَيَبْلُوَنَّكُمُ ٱللَّهُ بِشَىْءٍ مِّنَ ٱلصَّيْدِ تَنَالُهُۥٓ أَيْدِيكُمْ وَرِمَاحُكُمْ لِيَعْلَمَ ٱللَّهُ مَن يَخَافُهُۥ بِٱلْغَيْبِ ۚ فَمَنِ ٱعْتَدَىٰ بَعْدَ ذَٰلِكَ فَلَهُۥ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ

94.  O ye who believe! Allah will surely try you somewhat (in the matter) of the game which ye take with your hands and your spears, that Allah may know him who feareth Him in secret. But whoso transgresseth after this, for him there is a painful doom.
94.  Yaaa-‘ayyu-hallaziina  ‘aamanuu  la-yablu-wanna-kumUllaahu  bi-shay-‘im-minas-saydi  tanaa-luhuuu  ‘ay-diikum  wa  rimaa-hukum  li-ya’-lamAllaahu  many-yakhaa-fuhuu  bil-gayb.  Famani’-tadaa  ba’-da  zaalika  falahuu  ‘azaabun  ‘aliim.


There is mention about such a matter in this verse, which has been forbidden for a short time, that is to say; to go hunting in the form of pilgrim-garb (Ehraam). Allah Almighty wishes to test the human being. And the test can be judged completely in such a matter, which is forbidden only for a few days, while use of that thing is lawful forever. At the other hand, it becomes habituated to abstain from that thing, use of which is unlawful, and it becomes easy to give it up. But it is difficult to refrain from that deed for a few days, which can be done every time without any resistance. This trial has been kept also for the Muslims that they have been prevented from wild game in the form of pilgrim-garb during the season of Hajj. Although the game was found in so much abundance in those days that it could be caught with hands or lances very easily.

It is commanded: O Muslims! You will be prevented a little from the land game so that you may be tried, whether you have fear of Allah Almighty or not, to Whom you are not looking. Such fear arises only by the belief, sign of which is God-fearing in secret. So actually it is a test of your belief. The person, who will fail in this examination, for him there is a painful doom.
