LESSON # 533 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
Trust in God and Ignore Hypocrites
Surah Nisaaa’ (Women) – Chapter – 4)
Verses –81 of 176, Section – 11/24 (Part – 5)
||Wa yaquuluuna Taa-‘ah; fa-‘izaa barazuu min ‘indika bayyata taaa-‘ifatum-minhum gayrallazii taquul. Wallaahu yak-tubu maa yu-bayyituun. Fa-‘a’-riz ‘anhum wa ta-wakkal ‘alAllaah. Wa kafaa Billaahi Wakiilaa.|
Taa-‘atun – (to say: I agreed, I admitted or I believed)
bayyatun – (night)
‘A’-riz – (ignore, turn away, do not care)
Another artifice of the hypocrites has been narrated in this verse. When they used to listen to the Sayings of the Messenger of Allah Almighty, they used to say before him (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), “We have admitted, accepted or agreed to your entire commands whole-heartedly and our duty is to obey you”. However, when they used to get out from the company of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), then they used to plan secretly at night and bring to a conclusion that possibly they would never obey the Prophet ‘Muhammad’ (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) and oppose him. Their open and hidden are not equal. They backbite and do not do that, what they say. If they think that, they would use to deceive the Muslims by making apparent lame excuses like this, and use to dig secretly their roots, then they are at wrong because this all secret planning (of nights) is being observed by Allah Almighty. He knows their entire wicked activities from the beginning to the end. This double-faced conduct of the hypocrites will not run more ahead and their fraud will be disclosed positively.
The obedience does not have the meaning that the tongue, “Yes Sir, very well and all right”, says, but the heart makes up the mind to do against it. Then Messenger of Allah Almighty is being instructed, “Trust in Allah Almighty. What He wishes to do, He does it. Neither He needs any help of someone, nor does He care for any opposite. He is Sufficient to complete all tasks. Believe in Him”.
After describing the double-faced policy (conspiracies and artifices) of the Hypocrites, Allah Almighty commanded the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), “You would ignore them and put your trust in Allah Almighty because His Adroitness is Sufficient. Neither you are needy of anybody and nor progress of Islam is connected with any person”.
