Concealing the Truth

Surah ‘Al-Baqarah (The Cow) – Chapter – 2)

BisMillaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim

In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

 أَمْ تَقُولُونَ إِنَّ إِبْرَٰهِۦمَ وَإِسْمَٰعِيلَوَإِسْحَٰقَ وَيَعْقُوبَ وَٱلْأَسْبَاطَ كَانُوا۟ هُودًا أَوْ نَصَٰرَىٰ قُلْ ءَأَنتُمْ أَعْلَمُ أَمِ ٱللَّهُ وَمَنْ أَظْلَمُ مِمَّن كَتَمَ شَهَٰدَةً عِندَهُۥ مِنَ ٱللَّهِ وَمَا ٱللَّهُ بِغَٰفِلٍعَمَّا تَعْمَلُونَ (140

140.  Or say ye that Abraham, and Ishmael, and Isaac, and Jacob, and the tribes were Jews or Christians? Say: Do ye know best, or doth Allah? And who is more unjust than he who hideth a testimony which he hath received from Allah? And Allah is not Unaware of what ye do.
140.  ‘Am taquuluuna ‘inna ‘Ibraahiima wa ‘Ismaa-‘iila wa ‘Is-haaqa wa Ya’-quuba wal-‘Asbaata kaanuu Huudan ‘aw Nasaaraa.  Qul ‘a-‘antum ‘a’-lamu ‘aMillaah. Wa man ‘azlamu mimman-katama shahaadatan ‘indahuu minAllaah. Wa mAllaahuu bi-gaafilin ‘ammaa ta’-maluun.   

Commentary

In this verse, the Children of Israel and the Christians have been replied for another misunderstanding and self-invented beliefs. They had thought that their Reverends, the Prophets Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob (peace be upon Them) and Their children were either followers of Jewish religion or the Christianity, namely (I seek shelter of Allah Almighty) they had fallen in the sectarian groups also.

God Almighty commands: O the People of the Scripture! You may consider how much you wish by changing the forms of the Truth and distorting the incidents but it is fact that these all Reverend persons and Prophets (peace be upon Them) remained standing themselves on the pure religion of Oneness of God; and as well as they preserved others to remain on it. It is called Islam. Your knowledge is neither more than God Almighty and even nor is equal to Him. Moreover, your knowledge has no comparison to His knowledge. You use to hide the Truth intentionally. You have received Holy Books, which testify that the religion Islam is Rightful. The Prophets Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac and Jacob (peace be upon Them) were perfect Believers and the followers of Unity; that is to say; Islam. It has been written in your Scriptures also that in the end times, a Rightful Messenger (Muhammad - glory, grace, blessings and peace be upon Him) will come. Knowingly you are hiding this Real and True revelation, and who will be crueler than him who hides the rightful verse?

We have known from this verse that hiding the Truth and real facts is the greatest sin in the Court of Allah Almighty. We should save ourselves from it.
