Lesson – 24
Surah ‘Al-‘Baqarah (The Cow) – Chapter – 2)
Stage – 1, Verse – 6 of 286, Section – 1 of 40 (Part - 1)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
6. As for the disbelievers, whether thou warn them or thou warn them not it is all one for them; they believe not.
6. ‘Innal-laziina kafaruu sawaaa-‘un ‘alay-him ‘a.’anzartahum ‘am lam tunzirhum laa yu’-minuun.
Kafaruu – (those who deny the Truth, who refuse, who do not believe in the Omnipotence of God). This word has been derived from kafara, which means “to hide”. According to the Divine Law of the Religion, he is the infidel, who opposes and denies the Truth, who does not believe in God and His Messenger (peace be upon Him).
When God Almighty described the success and condition of the persons who depended on His guidance and succeeded, then, it is also necessary to discuss the consequence and condition of the Pagans, so that; the difference among the two may be cleared and the dignity of the pious and abstinent people is illuminated.
From this verse, now, it is the beginnings of the mention about those people, who are totally opposite to the Believers. They are enemies of Islam heartily, and spend their energy, wealth and time even everything against Islam. Such people resist due to their infidelity despite in the presence of so clear proofs. Their ability to accept the Truth is being weak day by day due to successive opposing and continuous denial, even that, it goes to end entirely. In this form, frightening them or otherwise from the punishment, is equal for The Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him).
Main desire of The Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) was admission of the entire people in the circle of Islam. In this verse, the fact has been cleared before The Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) that those people have destroyed their power of recognizing and believing in the Just.
As; God Almighty has commanded: “Whether thou warn them or thou warn them not, it is all one for them; they believe not,” this news is not a form of decision, but it is an announcement and declaration against the result of their chained enmity and refusal. Allah Almighty has put the virtue of accepting the Truth in every individual. But the people who oppose the Truth due to their personal benefits, miserly, Misleading or bad company, they waste their power of accepting the Truth slowly and gradually. So, it is our duty that with the power of seeking the Truth, which we have in our hearts naturally; we should not let it destroyed but remain in search of the Just and the Truth. We should publicize the teachings of the Truth and convey the Message of Truth to the servants of God with such wisdom and in a graceful manner, that, fear of God and softness may be produced in their hearts; who have a little ability to accept the Truth, we should reach them with our possible available resources.
