Committing insurrection and evil-deeds
Surah ‘Al-Baqarah (The Cow) – Chapter – 2)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
وَمَا يُعَلِّمَانِ مِنْ أَحَدٍ حَتَّىٰ يَقُولَآ إِنَّمَا نَحْنُ فِتْنَةٌ فَلَا تَكْفُرْ فَيَتَعَلَّمُونَ مِنْهُمَا مَا يُفَرِّقُونَ بِهِۦ بَيْنَٱلْمَرْءِ وَزَوْجِهِۦ
102c. Nor did they (the two angels) teach it to anyone till they had said: We are only a temptation, therefore disbelieve not (in the guidance of Allah). And from these two (angels) people learn that by which they cause division between man and his wife;
102c. Wa maa yu-‘alli-maani min ‘ahadin hatta ya-quulaaa ‘innamaa nahnu fitna-tun, falaa takfur. Fayata-‘alla-muuna minhumaa maa yufar-riquuna bihii baynal-mar-‘i wa zawjih.
Yu-‘alli-maani - (they both taught) this word is from Ta’-liim. It means “to teach”. But here this word isn’t used in these meanings that the angels used to teach magic to the people. Moreover the meanings of Ta’-liim are “to inform, to show and to tell” here.
Fitna-tun-(disorder, badness, quarrel, test, examination, temptation) Here it is used in the meanings of test & examination only.
Some quarrelsome persons of
used to come unto
the Angels and say, “you prevent us from black magic and witchcraft but let we
know about the magic. Which are the acts of magic due to which, using them is
infidelity? After replying them, when the angels used to tell them about magic,
its actions and words, then those evil-doers used to hear carefully and use it
as an art. Babel
Allah Almighty commands also about this mischief of the Jews that those people used to exercise the particular branch of magic with the help of which, they might produce quarrel and misunderstanding among husband and wife, whereas, it is the worst kind of evil-doing. Creating misunderstanding between the two hearts and specially creating quarrel between husband and wife is the worst act.
Warning of Harut and Marut was to be enough that they used to tell themselves a test, and prevent the Jews from infidelity and evil. But they didn’t learn the lesson. They didn’t listen to their advice but continued committing insurrection and evil-deeds.
