Quran Chapter 2- 196a (Pt-2, Stg-1) (L-241) - درس قرآن

The Pilgrimage

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.)

(196a) وَأَتِمُّوا۟ ٱلْحَجَّ

196a. And perform the Pilgrimage

196a. Wa ‘atimmul-Hajja

Commentary

‘Al-Hajja – it is the fifth pillar of Islam. It is duty of every such individual to perform the Pilgrimage once in the life; who is able to do it. Otherwise he/she will be the sinner. The Pilgrimage is performed on Ninth Zul-Hajjah (the last month) of Islamic/lunar Calendar year. At first, the entire Muslims gather in Makkah city to visit the Inviolable Place of Worship (the Squire Building), then unite in the Arafat Field.

The matters relating to the Fighting and Striving have been discussed before the commands regarding Pilgrimage and after the verses of the Pilgrimage in this Surah. It has been revealed clearly that ‘how much deep relation have these both matters with each other’. There is none Pillar of Islam in which the aim of the National Social Welfare, Improvement and Prosperity, and Exaltation has not been mentioned in addition to Personal Goodness and Purity.

Especial thing, which belongs to the Pilgrimage, is that all Muslims from the entire world unite once a year in the Centre of Islam. There is no difference among ups and downs. Black and White, Rich and Poor, King and Beggar, Scholar and Uneducated, Young and Old, they all stand at the same place bringing together their shoulders with shoulders and saying with one tone the same words,

“Lab-baika ‘Allaahumma Lab-baika Lab-baika Laa Shariika laka Lab-baika ‘Innal Hamda wan-na’-mata Laka wal-Mulk Laa Shariika lak”

(I am present, O Allah! I am present, I am present – there is no partner of Thee, I am present. Lo! Praise and Blessing is of Thee, and Sovereignty, there is no co-sharer of Thee).

Every Pilgrim makes a vow of Pilgrimage (preparatory to entrance into Makkah). It (Ihram) contains two un-sewn (cotton) sheets – for each Pilgrim. This, the same kind of dress shows equality, simplicity, friendship and Love for God Almighty. During the Pilgrimage, getting shaved the head, cutting the nails, hunting and intercourse with one’s wife are prohibited. As though, the object to abstain from own wishes, physical elegance and dressing is to get a permanent training.

The entire Pilgrims unite at the stipulated time in the Arafat Field on the day of Pilgrimage, listen to the Speech (Address of the Pilgrimage), Pray in the court of God Almighty, get forgiven their sins and collect treasures of the Mercy and Kindness of Allah Almighty.

Then they sacrifice the cattle in Minaa’, throw pebbles at Jamaraat, go round the Holy Shrine (the Inviolable Place of Worship – BaytUllaah), Kiss the Black Stone (Hajri- Aswad), quench the thirst with Aabi Zamzam (the water of a sacred well in the boundary of Masjidil Haraam), perform the Endeavour (Sa-‘ii) between Safaa’ and Marwah (hills), stop all kinds of evildoing, sins and ill-manners, as though; after getting forgiven their sins, they are going to start their lives’ accounts from the beginning today.

Fortunate are those people who are bestowed with the chance of Pilgrimage and they performed it, understood its objects and passed their remaining lives with goodness and chastity.

Quran Chapter 2- 195 (Pt-2, Stg-1) (L-240) - درس قرآن

Commands regarding Jihad and Qital

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.)

The orders regarding fighting and striving (Qital and Jihad) end on the verse – 195. It seems reasonable that the obligatory aspects of the fighting and striving, its terms and conditions should be stated briefly. Since some misled people are apparent totally as Deniers of the fighting on one side and on the other side; our enemy historians; particularly the western authors defame the Muslims and Islam by narrating about Jihad as only beating and brawl out, slaughtering and plundering, and religious bloody fight.

Let us discuss the matter numerically in the light of verses up to 195. Those commandments which have been mentioned on other places in Holy Qur’an, will be explained at own places:

1. Fight for the cause of Allah Almighty.(190)

2. Fight only those people who fight against you (190), in other words don’t fight with the people who like peace and love, that is to say; the children, the women, the ailing, the excusable and unarmed people.

3. Don’t intensify. God Almighty doesn’t like the individuals who oppress. (190).

4. Slay them wherever ye find the enemy in the battlefield (191). Remember that this order is only for the situation of war and not during peace time.

5. Drive your enemies out of the areas whence they drove you out (191).

6. Try neither to make mischief/persecution or quarrel, nor let any individual to do this. The persecution is worse than slaughter (190).

7. You can fight only against the persons at the Inviolable Place of Worship (Masjidil-Haraam) who fight there otherwise you cannot. (191)

8. If the enemy desists from war then stop it (192).

9. Fight until sedition/persecution is no more and the Religion of God Almighty excels. (192)

10. Let there be no hostility except against the wrongdoers (193).

11. Respect the Forbidden Months and stop fighting during these months (194).

12. Observe your duty to God Almighty and know that Allah Almighty is with those who ward off (evil) (194).

13. Spend your wealth for the cause of Allah Almighty. If you will not do so, then you will cast yourselves by your own hands to ruin. (195).

14. Do good and honoring. Lo! Allah Almighty loves the beneficent. (195)

Think for awhile. Which point is against the wisdom, justice or nobility from the above?

Spend your wealth for the Cause of God

‘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.)

(195) وَأَنفِقُوا۟ فِى سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ وَلَا تُلْقُوا۟ بِأَيْدِيكُمْ إِلَى ٱلتَّهْلُكَةِ ۛ وَأَحْسِنُوٓا۟ ۛ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ يُحِبُّ ٱلْمُحْسِنِينَ

195. And spend your wealth for the Cause of Allah, and cast not (yourselves) by your own hands to ruin; and do good. Lo! Allah loveth the beneficent.

195. Wa ‘anfiquu fii sabiiLIllaahi wa laa tulquu bi-‘aydii-kum ‘ilattahlukah. Wa ‘ahsinuuu ‘innAllaaha yuhibbul-Muh-siniin.

Commentary

Laa tulquu bi-‘aydii-kum ‘ilat-tahlukah – (cast not (yourselves) by your own hands to ruin), there was a command about fighting and strive (qataal & jihaad) in the previous verses, and it has been ordered that they should spend the wealth for the cause of God Almighty before this sentence of the verse under discussion. As though, it is the command of God Almighty that whenever there is a need to strive for the country and nation, and the sacrifice of the wealth is required, the Muslims should not show avarice, and don’t stop their hands to spend the wealth for the cause of Allah. If you will do so, then it will be like that “you will cut your own feet, you will slaughter yourselves”. Doing so, not only it will harm the nation and the country, but the defeat of the nation will be your own defeat and the harm of the religion will be your own loss.

Some people take its meaning wrong: Plunge not into the danger intentionally and don’t put your life into the risky affairs. This cause is entirely not from this sentence, it is true, but neither there is situation of it and nor it has been mentioned here.

Command for fighting and strive, it has been prescribed upon the Muslims in the earlier verses that they should sacrifice their lives in the way of God Almighty, fight the enemies of His religion to raise it. If Idolaters and Infidels resist their work, they should fight against them also and lift their swords upon them to stop the cruelty. In this verse, God Almighty has ordered to spend their wealth for the Cause of Allah Almighty.

Sacrifice of the lives is required to crush the enemies and to press the persecution and the rebellion, so that the soldiers of God Almighty plunge into the battlefield; by keeping their lives on their palms, with full excitement of Islam without caring of their death and slaughter, and strive for only one purpose ‘Raising the name of Allah Almighty’. For this intention, spending the wealth and property is needed at the second stage, so that the arms, weapons and equipment for war may be bought, security may be provided to the left behind members of the soldiers’ families, necessities of life of the martyrs’ children and widows may be fulfilled, eating and drinking items for the Army may be amassed and goods of ration may be stored in case of being besieged.

‘ahsinuuu – (do good) the meanings of ‘ih-saan (favor, kindness) are “to behave good for goodness”. It aims that “whatsoever would you do, that should be done with good intention and sincerity. Don’t do any work only as bringing down the forced labor (taken without wages or remuneration) and paying debt. Also that nothing can become hindrance in the good behavior during fighting and strive – (Qataal and Jihaad). Messenger of God Almighty preached so more for the good behavior that while you begin to sacrifice any animal, you should do so that it feels the pain at the very least too.

195. Wa ‘anfiquu fii sabiiLIllaahi wa laa tulquu bi-‘aydii-kum ‘ilattahlukah. Wa ‘ahsinuuu ‘innAllaaha yuhibbul-Muh-siniin.

Commentary

Laa tulquu bi-‘aydii-kum ‘ilat-tahlukah – (cast not (yourselves) by your own hands to ruin), there was a command about fighting and strive (qataal & jihaad) in the previous verses, and it has been ordered that they should spend the wealth for the cause of God Almighty before this sentence of the verse under discussion. As though, it is the command of God Almighty that whenever there is a need to strive for the country and nation, and the sacrifice of the wealth is required, the Muslims should not show avarice, and don’t stop their hands to spend the wealth for the cause of Allah. If you will do so, then it will be like that “you will cut your own feet, you will slaughter yourselves”. Doing so, not only it will harm the nation and the country, but the defeat of the nation will be your own defeat and the harm of the religion will be your own loss.

Some people take its meaning wrong: Plunge not into the danger intentionally and don’t put your life into the risky affairs. This cause is entirely not from this sentence, it is true, but neither there is situation of it and nor it has been mentioned here.

Command for fighting and strive, it has been prescribed upon the Muslims in the earlier verses that they should sacrifice their lives in the way of God Almighty, fight the enemies of His religion to raise it. If Idolaters and Infidels resist their work, they should fight against them also and lift their swords upon them to stop the cruelty. In this verse, God Almighty has ordered to spend their wealth for the Cause of Allah Almighty.

Sacrifice of the lives is required to crush the enemies and to press the persecution and the rebellion, so that the soldiers of God Almighty plunge into the battlefield; by keeping their lives on their palms, with full excitement of Islam without caring of their death and slaughter, and strive for only one purpose ‘Raising the name of Allah Almighty’. For this intention, spending the wealth and property is needed at the second stage, so that the arms, weapons and equipment for war may be bought, security may be provided to the left behind members of the soldiers’ families, necessities of life of the martyrs’ children and widows may be fulfilled, eating and drinking items for the Army may be amassed and goods of ration may be stored in case of being besieged.

‘ahsinuuu – (do good) the meanings of ‘ih-saan (favor, kindness) are “to behave good for goodness”. It aims that “whatsoever would you do, that should be done with good intention and sincerity. Don’t do any work only as bringing down the forced labor (taken without wages or remuneration) and paying debt. Also that nothing can become hindrance in the good behavior during fighting and strive – (Qataal and Jihaad). Messenger of God Almighty preached so more for the good behavior that while you begin to sacrifice any animal, you should do so that it feels the pain at the very least too.

Quran Chapter 2- 194b (Pt-2, Stg-1) (L-238) - درس قرآن

God is with them who fear Him

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.)

194b. وَٱتَّقُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ وَٱعْلَمُوٓا۟ أَنَّ ٱللَّهَ مَعَ ٱلْمُتَّقِينَ

194b. And observe your duty to Allah, and know that Allah is with those who ward off (evil)

194b. WattaqUllaaha wa’lamuuu ‘an-nAllaaha ma‘al-Muttaqiin.

Commentary

‘AttaqUllaaha – (observe your duty to Allah, fear God), the order regarding abstinence, control of passions and God fearing has come again and again in the holy Qur’an that every individual should have fear of God Almighty at the time of doing any work, should adopt abstinence, should control his passions, ward off bad manners, feel disgust from the sins, evildoing and devilishness. These all commands come under one sentence i.e. ‘AttaqUllaaha. The origin of God fearing is very important in every field of the Muslim’s life. Till the time this thing does not manifest in the word and deed of the Muslim, his Islam cannot become perfect. Fear of God teaches him temperance, inclines towards the good deeds and takes away from the bad acts.

It is 194th verse of Surah Al-Baqarah. We have recited ‘14’ times about Fear of God (Taqwa) up to this verse, particularly after the command about worship, after the remembrance of the Children of Israel, after the mention of the principles of the code of morality, after the command regarding retaliation, after the sanction of bequest and after the order of a fast. (Taqwa) has been signified as ‘intended’ and ‘required’ by the mankind to be adopted at every place.

Whether it is being stated about lawful and unlawful in the Holy Qur’an, discussing the matters of marriage and divorce, describing the laws of property and wealth of the orphans and the poor, debating about the distribution of heritage and bequest, clearing the principles of association and mutual social intercourse or enlightening on the matters of slaughter and strive, everywhere, It shall teach the lesson of Taqwa (God fearing) and shall inform certain about its importance, utmost why?

The mankind is puppet of passions, slave of feelings and servant of perceptions. At the time of doing every work, he remains under its impression. He drops down for unjust instead of remaining on temperance and justice. Leaving the level of Just brings him unto the cruelty, violation of right, injustice and oppression. These all things are at very low level of a Muslim, so it is necessary that whether he is earnest in any field of life, he should not give up temperance from his hand.

This lesson is taught to keep every individual on such level that he should keep in view the Existence of God Almighty, His commands, and attendance in His Court. He should consider that the entire worldly property and valuables, respect and fame are casual. Real thing is Success in the Court of Allah Almighty. So, if any person has to suffer even some loss casually due to liking the justice, he should bear it because God Almighty helps only those people who fear Him and it is clear that the individual who has been provided Support by Allah Almighty, there is none lucky, obedient and successful person more than him.
