Quran Chapter 2- 169 (Pt-2, Stg-1) (L-194) - درس قرآن

Devilish works

Surah ‘Al-Baqarah (The Cow) – Chapter – 2)

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim. 
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

 إِنَّمَا يَأْمُرُكُم بِٱلسُّوٓءِ وَٱلْفَحْشَآءِ وَأَن تَقُولُوا۟ عَلَى ٱللَّهِ مَا لَا تَعْلَمُونَ (169     

169.  He enjoineth upon you only the evil and the foul, and that ye should tell concerning Allah that which ye know not.
169.  ‘Innamaa  ya’-murukum  bis-suuu-‘i  wal-fah-shaaa-‘i  wa  ‘an- taquuluu ‘alAllaahi  maa  laa  ta’-lamuun.

Commentary

’As-suuu-‘u – evil/bad thing (intellectually and legally)

‘Al-fah-shaaa-‘u – (foul, shamelessness and disliked due to morality and respect, the words fahash (indecent, frivolous) and faahishah (shameless, unchaste) have also been derived from it.

Two characteristics of Satan (the Devil) have been described in this verse:

1.   He teaches evil and fouls always to the human being. The mankind should never hope for advantage/benefit from the Devil because it is his nature that he is stained entirely in the evil, filth, foul, depravity and impurity/pollution, and he wishes to keep stained the human beings too. He excites every time for any kind of wickedness, quarrel, sedition, mischief and bustle, and stands in the way of righteousness. The entire such wishes and works, which are fatal for human brotherhood and humanity itself, are entered in the evil and foul. To create a mischief in the safety and peace of the society, to sow dissension among mutual brotherhood and fraternity, to extirpate the union and cooperation, not to fulfill the rights of the servants, it means that the entire works, due to which, tumult spreads, belong to mischievous and devilish.

2.   The Devil induces the human beings to tell the people false, self-invented by themselves talks and show that these are from the commandments of God Almighty, while Allah Almighty has never commanded for such things, but the followers of the Devil do all that, for reaping casual advantages of frail things, worldly temptation and greed of wealth.

This disease had become common in the scholars of the Children of Israel. For deceiving the public, they used to tell the useful for them; self-invented talks and used to say that it was from God Almighty. Resultant the foundation of their religion became hollow and they failed for future.

We should learn from this verse that we should neither take part in the evil deeds and foul, and nor tell the public false and self-invented matters because these both works belong to Satan.
