Lesson # 927 - Requital from those who invent a lie in the religion
Lesson # 927 from the Noble Quran
Requital from those who invent a lie in the
Surah ‘A’-RAAF(The Heights) – Chapter – 7)
Stage – 2, Verses – 152 & 153 of 206,
Section – 19 of 24 (Part - 9)
In the name ofGod, the Beneficent, the
152. Lo! Those who
chose the calf (for worship), terror from their Lord and humiliation will
come upon them in the life of the world. And thus do We requite those who
invent a lie.
153. And those who
do ill-deeds and afterward repent and believe – lo! for them, afterward,
Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
152. ‘Innal-laziinat-takha-zul-‘ijla sa-yanaalu-hum, gazabum-mir-Rabbihim wa
fil-hayaatid-dunyaa. Wa kazaalika
‘amilus-sayyi-‘aati summa taabuu
mim- ba’-dihaa wa ‘aamanuuu ‘inna
Rabbaka mim- ba’-dihaa
Sa-yanaalu-hum- (will come upon them shortly), sa - means shortly, nearly. The word Yanaalu has
been derived from niil. Niil means “to find, to get”. Hum means
“to them”. Dunyaa
means “the world”. Here, this word has been used as adjective and it
is feminine of ‘adnaa. ‘Adnaa is an
explanatory particle, that is to say; more close. These are the meanings of dunyaa.
Only its form is feminine. It has been made from danawa, which means to be close, near.
commanded: O Moses (peace be upon Him)! Cause to hear them, who caused to make
a calf and did worship it, that, terror and humiliation (both) will come upon
them from their Lord in this world. Allah Almighty commands that He gives the
same punishment to those people, who design new ways of worship and other matters,
and include them into the religion themselves. And then, they consider it real
religion. These people coat false over the religion and wish to make it a game
and jest, so that; anyone may do whatever one desires, and then, introduce it as
a religion in the public. Such people open the way of straying for the human
beings and want that the religion should be subject to in obedience to them.
In Islam, there
is no form of forgiveness without sincere repentance by such people. However,
those individuals, who repented sincerely according to the prescribed rule of
Allah Almighty and proved their sincerity and truthfulness and became true
believers, then God Almighty will forgive them after such repentance and belief,
and will have mercy on them, that is to say; they will not be punished on the
Day of Resurrection.
The method of
repentance, which Prophet Moses (peace be upon Him) told them with the Command
of Allah Almighty has been mentioned in Surah
Baqarah (Chapter – 2), that; those people, who did not worship the calf,
should kill them who did worship the calf. In it, both punishments i.e. terror
and humiliation have been included. It is known from these verses that in
Islam, punishment for the apostasy is “killing”.
