Quran Chapter 2- 187e (Pt-2, Stg-1) (L-227) - درس قرآن

The limits imposed by Allah

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

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim. 
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)


(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

تِلْكَ حُدُودُ ٱللَّهِ فَلَا تَقْرَبُوهَا كَذَٰلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ ٱللَّهُ ءَايَٰتِهِۦ لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَّقُونَ (187   e) 

187e.  These are the limits imposed by Allah, so approach them not. Thus Allah expoundeth His Revelation to mankind that they may ward off (evil).
187e.  Tilka  huduudullahi  falaa taq-rabuuhaa.  Kazaalika  yubay-yinullaahu  ‘Aayaatihii  linnaasi  la-‘allahum  yatta-quun.


Tilka (These) it indicates unto those six/seven commands which have been expounded in the earlier lessons.

Huduudun – (plural of Hadd which means limits) it aims the limits of the codes and regulations imposed by God Almighty that those should not be crossed; as pressed again and again in the Holy Qur’an.

‘Aayaat – (Verses, commands, customs, rules and regulations)

Holy Qur’an has explained all concerning rules and regulations after discussing about the blessings, being the fast an obligation, the necessities and codes regarding restraining in the mosque. Now it has been warned in this last piece of this verse that the entire laws, principles, limits and prohibitions have been imposed by God Almighty.

It will not be an ordinary thing to turn from them and disobey. Moreover, God Almighty has exposed them, Who has the Knowledge and Philosophy. His Guidance and Commands are rightful, based on advisability, and guarantor of betterment and success. This world and the Hereafter will become better with their execution and following. Disobedience and refusal from them will become forerunner of ruin and destruction. So none should cross these limits and should remain within the imposed limits of Him.

As God Almighty has expounded in detail about the commands regarding the fasting, its limits, timings, restraining in mosque and other concerning matters, like this; He commands about remaining orders for mankind’s betterment and prosperity in detail. Fear of God, control of the passions, spirit of obeying and obedience, sincerity and sacrifice, chastity and honesty, good nature and well wishing will grow in the human being due to abiding by these rules strongly.

Any individual cannot establish himself any path for his expedience and betterment due to less sense nature. He needs instructions of a Sage and Excellent Life, an Aggregate Scholar and an Absolute Master, Who is One i.e. God Almighty. He has guided us towards the success and prosperity with His extremely Kindness. So we should go on the Straight Path without hesitation and get the real object.
