سـورة المائدة

The Food
 

Al-Ma'idah | Sura # 5| 120 verses | Madinan

 

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ 

In the name of Allah, the Most Compassionate and Most Merciful

    

Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 057
 
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا لَا تَتَّخِذُوا الَّذِينَ اتَّخَذُوا دِينَكُمْ هُزُوًا وَلَعِبًا مِنَ الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ مِنْ قَبْلِكُمْ وَالْكُفَّارَ أَوْلِيَاءَ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ مُؤْمِنِينَ  [ O' People who Believe! Those who have made your religion a mockery and a sport, and those who received the Book before you, and the disbelievers, do not befriend any of them; and keep fearing Allah, if you truly believe. ]
 
 
Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 058
 
وَإِذَا نَادَيْتُمْ إِلَى الصَّلَاةِ اتَّخَذُوهَا هُزُوًا وَلَعِبًا ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمْ قَوْمٌ لَا يَعْقِلُونَ  [ And when you call for Salah, they mock and make fun of it; this is because they are people without any sense. ]
 
Making fun of the religion, the rules of Sharia or mocking at the call of Salah, are the works of hypocrites and the enemies of Islam.  Therefore, it is not advisable for the Muslims to befriend and share their time with them.
 
Similarly befriending with the followers of the deviant sects, particularly with those whose  past time is to disrespect the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) and dignitaries of Islam and make mockery of Awliya Allah and their pious graves is dangerous. They call the graves of the dignitaries of Islam and Awliya Allah as lying Idols worshiped by Muslims.  They call Muslims as grave worshipers.  In this scenario, how it is possible to be friendly with such people and listen to their blatant blasphemy? It is most likely that by continuously listening to their out of context arguments, you will also fall victim to their hypocrisy and become one of them. 

 

Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 059
 
قُلْ يَا أَهْلَ الْكِتَابِ هَلْ تَنْقِمُونَ مِنَّا إِلَّا أَنْ آَمَنَّا بِاللَّهِ وَمَا أُنْزِلَ إِلَيْنَا وَمَا أُنْزِلَ مِنْ قَبْلُ وَأَنَّ أَكْثَرَكُمْ فَاسِقُونَ  [ Tell them : O' people of the Book, what reason have you for disliking us other than that we believe in Allah and what has been sent down to us, and was sent down before, and because most of you are disobedient? ]

 

Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 060
 
قُلْ هَلْ أُنَبِّئُكُمْ بِشَرٍّ مِنْ ذَلِكَ مَثُوبَةً عِنْدَ اللَّهِ مَنْ لَعَنَهُ اللَّهُ وَغَضِبَ عَلَيْهِ وَجَعَلَ مِنْهُمُ الْقِرَدَةَ وَالْخَنَازِيرَ وَعَبَدَ الطَّاغُوتَ أُولَئِكَ شَرٌّ مَكَانًا وَأَضَلُّ عَنْ سَوَاءِ السَّبِيلِ  [ Say, 'Shall I inform you of (what is) worse than that as penalty from Allah? It is those whom Allah has cursed and they were subjected to His wrath that turned some of them into apes and swine, and slaves of the devil; theirs is a worse position and they have wandered further away from the straight path. ]

 

Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 061
 
وَإِذَا جَاءُوكُمْ قَالُوا آَمَنَّا وَقَدْ دَخَلُوا بِالْكُفْرِ وَهُمْ قَدْ خَرَجُوا بِهِ وَاللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا كَانُوا يَكْتُمُونَ  [When they come to you they say : 'We believe'; but unbelieving they come and unbelieving they go; and Allah is aware of what they hide in their hearts.]

 

Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 062
 
وَتَرَى كَثِيرًا مِنْهُمْ يُسَارِعُونَ فِي الْإِثْمِ وَالْعُدْوَانِ وَأَكْلِهِمُ السُّحْتَ لَبِئْسَ مَا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ  [And you see many of them hastening into sin and aggression and the devouring of unlawful. How evil is what they do.]
 
Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 063
 
لَوْلَا يَنْهَاهُمُ الرَّبَّانِيُّونَ وَالْأَحْبَارُ عَنْ قَوْلِهِمُ الْإِثْمَ وَأَكْلِهِمُ السُّحْتَ لَبِئْسَ مَا كَانُوا يَصْنَعُونَ  [Why don't their priests and monks forbid them from speaking evil and devouring the forbidden? Undoubtedly what they do is extremely evil.]

 

Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 064
 
وَقَالَتِ الْيَهُودُ يَدُ اللَّهِ مَغْلُولَةٌ غُلَّتْ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَلُعِنُوا بِمَا قَالُوا بَلْ يَدَاهُ مَبْسُوطَتَانِ يُنْفِقُ كَيْفَ يَشَاءُ وَلَيَزِيدَنَّ كَثِيرًا مِنْهُمْ مَا أُنْزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِنْ رَبِّكَ طُغْيَانًا وَكُفْرًا وَأَلْقَيْنَا بَيْنَهُمُ الْعَدَاوَةَ وَالْبَغْضَاءَ إِلَى يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ كُلَّمَا أَوْقَدُوا نَارًا لِلْحَرْبِ أَطْفَأَهَا اللَّهُ وَيَسْعَوْنَ فِي الْأَرْضِ فَسَادًا وَاللَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ الْمُفْسِدِينَ  [And the Jews said, 'Allah’s hand is tied'. May their hands be tied, and they are accursed for saying so.  In fact, both His hands are widely open, He bestows upon whomever He wills. (O' Prophet ﷺ) this Book which has been sent down to you from your Lord will cause many of them to advance in their rebellion and disbelief; and We have instilled enmity and hatred between them till the Day of Resurrection; whenever they ignite the flame of war, Allah extinguishes it, and they strive to create chaos on earth; and Allah does not love who create tribulations.]

Salafis, Deobandis and their like minded groups take the literal meaning of this verse and claim Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) to have a physical body and hands like human beings. 

When someone tries to explain their  misconceptions, they  create a hue and cry and say this is 'Kalam' (use of mind/philosophy/Biddah). They behave exactly like Christians who believe in Trinity. When someone questions Christians how it is possible that there are three distinct Gods, the Father God, the Son of God and the Holy Ghost;  and then all the three are one?  They shout back and ask the person not to mix reasoning in religious beliefs.

 
Salalfis/Wahhabis and the like minded groups have deliberately misinterpreted Quranic verses and created a God of their own and have resorted to idol worship in the sense that they claim their God to have physical body who is sitting over a planet size chair above the seventh heaven and his face is in a certain direction. When someones tries to explain them to learn Quran under the guidance of a Shaikh of Ihsan, they claim they can understand Quran by their  self learning.  This was the attitude of their founding Imams like Ibn Taymiyya, Ibn Abdul Wahhab and others.
 
It is in Quran - هُوَ الَّذِي أَنزَلَ عَلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ مِنْهُ آيَاتٌ مُّحْكَمَاتٌ هُنَّ أُمُّ الْكِتَابِ وَأُخَرُ مُتَشَابِهَاتٌ ۖ فَأَمَّا الَّذِينَ فِي قُلُوبِهِمْ زَيْغٌ فَيَتَّبِعُونَ مَا تَشَابَهَ مِنْهُ ابْتِغَاءَ الْفِتْنَةِ وَابْتِغَاءَ تَأْوِيلِهِ ۗ وَمَا يَعْلَمُ تَأْوِيلَهُ إِلَّا اللَّهُ ۗ وَالرَّاسِخُونَ فِي الْعِلْمِ يَقُولُونَ آمَنَّا بِهِ كُلٌّ مِّنْ عِندِ رَبِّنَا ۗ وَمَا يَذَّكَّرُ إِلَّا أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ [ He Allah  is, who has sent down to you (O’ Prophet – صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) the Book (Quran).  Some verses of it are definite in meaning (Ayaat-e-Muhkamaat).  These form the mother of the Book (the basic there in) and the rest are figurative (metaphorical) ( Ayaat - e - Mutashaabihaat ).  But  they,  in whose minds there is a tendency to deviate from truth, take the metaphorical (verses in their literal / textual sense) craving discord, and craving to give them their own interpretation, although none knows the reality about them except Allah.  And those who make it right approach to knowledge could only say  'we believe therein all that is from our Lord'.  None can catch their significance except those gifted with insight.] (Aal-e-Imran - 7).
 
Who are those who are gifted with insight?  They are Khulafa-e-Rashideen, dignitaries of Islam, Shuyookhs of Ihsan and Awliya Allah who are rewarded with insight and proximity to Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) and His Apostle (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم).

It is in Quran - And who is more unjust than he who forges a lie against Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) or (he who) gives the lie to His communications (verses of Quran); surely the unjust will not be successful.( Al-An-A'am-21). 

To accept a body and limbs for Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ), whatever may be the kind, exclusively divine or creature like,  is polytheism.  Rather it is idolization of a false God.  

Hindus got confused in understanding Allah’s
(عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) attributes and concede every attribute of Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) as  different God. 

The Christian accept 3 different Gods, (i) the Father God, (ii) the son of God and (iii) Holy Ghost whose roles and shapes are different from each other.

 It is in Quran - لَّقَدْ كَفَرَ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ ثَالِثُ ثَلَاثَةٍ ۘ وَمَا مِنْ إِلَـٰهٍ إِلَّا إِلَـٰهٌ وَاحِدٌ ۚ وَإِن لَّمْ يَنتَهُوا عَمَّا يَقُولُونَ لَيَمَسَّنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِنْهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ  [ They surely are not believers in Allah who say Allah is the third of the three (God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost).  And there is no god except one God. And if they do not desist from what they are saying, there will surely afflict the disbelievers among them a painful punishment. (Al-Maidah - 73).

The Salafis/Ahle Hadith and like minded groups accept one  Sky Idol God, with exclusive divine  face, eyes, hands and Limbs.

All these theories are philosophical, fabricated by human mind and are totally against the facts of this Cosmos.

Unless people have correct faith about Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) and Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) their chances of salvation on the Judgement are void.  

Salafis argue that they are accepting Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) is not like His creatures. Also accepting that creature attributes cannot be associated with him.  Some Salafis even accept that the Quranic verses describing hands, eyes for Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) are all allegorical / metaphorical. But, in the same breath they associate all 9  physical characteristics mentioned  above with Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ)

This behavior is hypocrisy, which is worse than polytheism.

It is in Quran - وَمَنْ أَظْلَمُ مِمَّنِ افْتَرَىٰ عَلَى اللَّهِ كَذِبًا أَوْ كَذَّبَ بِآيَاتِهِ ۗ إِنَّهُ لَا يُفْلِحُ الظَّالِمُونَ  [ And who is more unjust than he who forges a lie against Allah or (he who) gives the lie to His communications (verses of Quran); surely the unjust will not be successful.( Al-An-A'am-21)

It is in Quran - ' They seek to deceive Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) and those who believe.  Nay, themselves do they deceive, though they are not conscious of it.  There is a disease in their hearts; so Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) lets them increase their disease and for them there is a grievous torment for the false assertions they have made (Al-Baqara - 9-10).

 
ONENESS (TAWHEED) OF SALAFI SKY GOD
 
Salafis translate Islamic Kalima as  'There is no Deity (Idol) save Allah.' When they say Allah is one, they mean that the Big Deity or Idol sitting on the skies is one, unique and no other Deity or Idol is like him.  They worship this idol 5 times a day.

Ibn Taymiyaah who propagated Paganism in the name of Islam, invented a theory of their Idol's Tawheed or Oneness of their Planetary human-like-Idol God. 
 
According to Salafis, the oneness of their Sky God consists of three things. 
 
(i) Tawheed-ar-Rububiyya
(ii) Tawheed al-Uloohiyya, and
(iii) Tawheed-al-Asma-was-Sifaat
 
In Tawheed-ar-Rububiyya, they claim that their Planetary human-like-Idol God is  "Rabb" ( Sustainer) of all creatures and human beings in the Universe.
 
In Tawheed-al-Uloohiya, they claim that their Planetary human-like-Idol God  is Divine. They prostrate in front of this Idol.  They say that they only ask from their Sky Idol God and from no one else. They demand all Muslims to bow down in front of their Planetary human-like-Idol God. Whoever does not do that, they call him Mushrik. 
 
In Tawheed al-Asma-was-Sifaat, they claim that their Planetary human-like-Idol God  is  'compassionate, merciful and all that.  They copy paste all attributes of Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) on their Planetary human-like-Idol God
 
As a matter of fact, they copy-paste all Quranic verses and Ahadith about Allah (عَزَّ وَجَلَّ) on their Planetary human-like-Idol God by misinterpreting their meanings. Salafis have about 200 sub groups and millions of followers of these sub groups. These facts show that by calling their Planetary human-like-Idol God as Allah, Salafis have led millions of people into Idol worship and all of them will sure be in a lot of trouble on the Day of Judgement.

 

Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 065
 
وَلَوْ أَنَّ أَهْلَ الْكِتَابِ آَمَنُوا وَاتَّقَوْا لَكَفَّرْنَا عَنْهُمْ سَيِّئَاتِهِمْ وَلَأَدْخَلْنَاهُمْ جَنَّاتِ النَّعِيمِ  [If the people of the Book had believed and feared, We would surely have absolved them of their sins, and admitted them to serene gardens of delight.]

 

Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 066
 
وَلَوْ أَنَّهُمْ أَقَامُوا التَّوْرَاةَ وَالْإِنْجِيلَ وَمَا أُنْزِلَ إِلَيْهِمْ مِنْ رَبِّهِمْ لَأَكَلُوا مِنْ فَوْقِهِمْ وَمِنْ تَحْتِ أَرْجُلِهِمْ مِنْهُمْ أُمَّةٌ مُقْتَصِدَةٌ وَكَثِيرٌ مِنْهُمْ سَاءَ مَا يَعْمَلُونَ  [And had they kept the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) established, and what was sent down towards them from their Lord, they would have received sustenance from above and from beneath their feet; among them is a group who is fair; but most of them commit extremely evil deeds.]
 
The meaning of sustenance from the above is the rain and below their feet is the vegetation and crops.

 

Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 067
 
يَا أَيُّهَا الرَّسُولُ بَلِّغْ مَا أُنْزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِنْ رَبِّكَ وَإِنْ لَمْ تَفْعَلْ فَمَا بَلَّغْتَ رِسَالَتَهُ وَاللَّهُ يَعْصِمُكَ مِنَ النَّاسِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الْكَافِرِينَ   [O Noble Apostle ﷺ) Convey all what has been sent down upon you from your Lord (and make sure they understand it well. If they do not understand any of the message); it is as if no message have been conveyed to them. Allah will protect you from the people. Indeed Allah does not guide the disbelievers.]

 

Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 068
 
قُلْ يَا أَهْلَ الْكِتَابِ لَسْتُمْ عَلَى شَيْءٍ حَتَّى تُقِيمُوا التَّوْرَاةَ وَالْإِنْجِيلَ وَمَا أُنْزِلَ إِلَيْكُمْ مِنْ رَبِّكُمْ وَلَيَزِيدَنَّ كَثِيرًا مِنْهُمْ مَا أُنْزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِنْ رَبِّكَ طُغْيَانًا وَكُفْرًا فَلَا تَأْسَ عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَ  [Say to them (O' Prophet ﷺ) O' people of the Book, you have no ground (for argument) until you follow the Taurait (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and what has been revealed to you by your Lord (the Quran).' But what has been revealed to you (O' Prophet ﷺ) by your Lord will surely increase rebellion and unbelief in many; so do not grieve for those who do not believe.]

 

Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 069
 
إِنَّ الَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا وَالَّذِينَ هَادُوا وَالصَّابِئُونَ وَالنَّصَارَى مَنْ آَمَنَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآَخِرِ وَعَمِلَ صَالِحًا فَلَا خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ   [Indeed, those who have believed (in Prophet Muhammad ﷺ) and those (before Him) who were Jews or Sabeans or Christians, those (among them) who believed in Allah and the Last Day and lived righteously, no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.]

 

Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 070
 
لَقَدْ أَخَذْنَا مِيثَاقَ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ وَأَرْسَلْنَا إِلَيْهِمْ رُسُلًا كُلَّمَا جَاءَهُمْ رَسُولٌ بِمَا لَا تَهْوَى أَنْفُسُهُمْ فَرِيقًا كَذَّبُوا وَفَرِيقًا يَقْتُلُونَ   [We had taken a solemn pledge from the children of Israel, and sent Apostles to them; but whenever Apostles came to them bringing what was not suited to their evil desires, they called some of them as imposters and killed some of them. ]

 

Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 071
 
وَحَسِبُوا أَلَّا تَكُونَ فِتْنَةٌ فَعَمُوا وَصَمُّوا ثُمَّ تَابَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِمْ ثُمَّ عَمُوا وَصَمُّوا كَثِيرٌ مِنْهُمْ وَاللَّهُ بَصِيرٌ بِمَا يَعْمَلُونَ   [ And they assumed that there will be no punishment, so they turned blind and deaf. And then (when some of them repented) Allah accepted their repentance. Then many of them turned blind and deaf again. And (all along) Allah is seeing their deeds. ]

 

Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 072
 
لَقَدْ كَفَرَ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الْمَسِيحُ ابْنُ مَرْيَمَ وَقَالَ الْمَسِيحُ يَا بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ اعْبُدُوا اللَّهَ رَبِّي وَرَبَّكُمْ إِنَّهُ مَنْ يُشْرِكْ بِاللَّهِ فَقَدْ حَرَّمَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ الْجَنَّةَ وَمَأْوَاهُ النَّارُ وَمَا لِلظَّالِمِينَ مِنْ أَنْصَارٍ   [ They are surely infidels who say : 'Isa Ibn Maryam (عليه السلام) is Allah' .  But Isa (عليه السلام) himself had said, O' children of Israel, worship Allah who is my Lord and your Lord.'  Whosoever associates a partner with Allah, will have Paradise denied to him by Allah, and his abode will be Hell; and these oppressors will have none to help them. ]

 

Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 073
 
لَّقَدْ كَفَرَ الَّذِينَ قَالُواْ إِنَّ اللّهَ ثَالِثُ ثَلاَثَةٍ وَمَا مِنْ إِلَهٍ إِلاَّ إِلَهٌ وَاحِدٌ وَإِن لَّمْ يَنتَهُواْ عَمَّا يَقُولُونَ لَيَمَسَّنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ مِنْهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ   [ They have certainly disbelieved who say, 'Allah is the third of three (Trinity) . And there is no god except Allah. And if they do not desist from what they are saying, a painful torment shall befall those among them who disbelieve. ]

 

Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 074
 
أَفَلَا يَتُوبُونَ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَيَسْتَغْفِرُونَهُ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَحِيمٌ [ So will they not repent to Allah and seek His forgiveness? And Allah is All Forgiving, Most Merciful. ]

 

Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 075
 
مَا الْمَسِيحُ ابْنُ مَرْيَمَ إِلَّا رَسُولٌ قَدْ خَلَتْ مِنْ قَبْلِهِ الرُّسُلُ وَأُمُّهُ صِدِّيقَةٌ كَانَا يَأْكُلَانِ الطَّعَامَ انْظُرْ كَيْفَ نُبَيِّنُ لَهُمُ الْآَيَاتِ ثُمَّ انْظُرْ أَنَّى يُؤْفَكُونَ [ The Messiah Ibn Maryam (عليه السلام) is an Apostle.   Many Apostles have come before him.  His mother was a truthful woman.  They both used to eat food.  See how We make the signs clear for them, and see how they turn away. ]

 

Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 076
قُلْ أَتَعْبُدُونَ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ مَا لَا يَمْلِكُ لَكُمْ ضَرًّا وَلَا نَفْعًا وَاللَّهُ هُوَ السَّمِيعُ الْعَلِيمُ [ Say (O' Prophet ﷺ), What you worship, other than Allah, are neither the controller of your losses nor of your gains?  And Allah is All Hearing All Knowing. ]
 
It is obvious that the above verse and similar other verses in Quran are meant for idol worshipers.  But Salafis and their like minded groups impose these verses on Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم), Aimma, dignitaries of Islam and Awliya Allah and claim that for Idol worshipers, the idols are standing in the temples, and for Muslims, their idols are lying in graves.  And they call Muslims Grave worshipers.  Taking these verses as excuse, they have destroyed the pious graves of Sahabah, dignitaries of Islam, Ahle Bait-e-At Haar in Arabian peninsula, Syria, Iraq and other places in the world.

It is in Hadith -  Abdullah bin Umar (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ) considered the Khawarij the worst of Allah's creation, and said, 'Verily they take the verses that were revealed about unbelievers and use them against the believers.  may Allah be pleased with him, considered the Khawārij rebels to be the worst of Allah’s creation and he said, “Verily, they take verses that were revealed about unbelievers and use them against the believers. (Bukhari)

Salafis and their like minded groups are the worst kind of Kharijis ever witnessed in the history of Islam.  They are worse than the Kharijis of Hadhrat Ali's (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ) time.  They followed the old practice of their ancestor Kharijis of imposing Quranic verses meant for non-believers on Muslims and declare them as unbelievers and kill them en masse.  

 
Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 077
 
قُلْ يَا أَهْلَ الْكِتَابِ لَا تَغْلُوا فِي دِينِكُمْ غَيْرَ الْحَقِّ وَلَا تَتَّبِعُوا أَهْوَاءَ قَوْمٍ قَدْ ضَلُّوا مِنْ قَبْلُ وَأَضَلُّوا كَثِيرًا وَضَلُّوا عَنْ سَوَاءِ السَّبِيلِ [ Say, "O People of the Scripture, do not exceed limits in your religion beyond the truth and do not follow the inclinations of a people who had gone astray before and misled many, and led many others go astray,  and wandered away from the straight path. ]

 

Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 078
 
لُعِنَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِنْ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ عَلَى لِسَانِ دَاوُودَ وَعِيسَى ابْنِ مَرْيَمَ ذَلِكَ بِمَا عَصَوْا وَكَانُوا يَعْتَدُونَ [ Cursed were disbelievers among the children of Israel by Dawood and Isa Ibn Maryam, (عليهم السلام) because they rebelled and transgressed the limits. ]

 

Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 079
 
كَانُوا لَا يَتَنَاهَوْنَ عَنْ مُنْكَرٍ فَعَلُوهُ لَبِئْسَ مَا كَانُوا يَفْعَلُونَ [ They did not restrain one another from the wrong doings they used to do; undoubtedly they used to do evil deeds. ]

 

Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 080
 
تَرَى كَثِيرًا مِنْهُمْ يَتَوَلَّوْنَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لَبِئْسَ مَا قَدَّمَتْ لَهُمْ أَنْفُسُهُمْ أَنْ سَخِطَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِمْ وَفِي الْعَذَابِ هُمْ خَالِدُونَ  [ You will see that many of them make friends with the disbelievers; what an evil thing they had sent ahead for themselves, for Allah’s wrath came upon them and (in Hereafter) they will remain in  torment forever.]

 

Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 081
 
وَلَوْ كَانُوا يُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَالنَّبِيِّ وَمَا أُنْزِلَ إِلَيْهِ مَا اتَّخَذُوهُمْ أَوْلِيَاءَ وَلَكِنَّ كَثِيرًا مِنْهُمْ فَاسِقُونَ  [ If they had believed in Allah and the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) and what had been revealed to him, they would never have held them as allies; and many among them are transgressors. ]

 

Juz 6, Al-Maidah, Verse 082
 
لَتَجِدَنَّ أَشَدَّ النَّاسِ عَدَاوَةً لِلَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا الْيَهُودَ وَالَّذِينَ أَشْرَكُوا وَلَتَجِدَنَّ أَقْرَبَهُمْ مَوَدَّةً لِلَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا الَّذِينَ قَالُوا إِنَّا نَصَارَى ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّ مِنْهُمْ قِسِّيسِينَ وَرُهْبَانًا وَأَنَّهُمْ لَا يَسْتَكْبِرُونَ  [ You will find the Jews and idolaters most excessive in hatred of those who believe; and the closest in love to the believers are the people who say : 'We are the followers of Isa (عليه السلام), because there are priests and monks among them, and they are not arrogant. ]
