Quran Chapter 2- 209 (Pt-2, Stg-1) (L-263) - درس قرآن

Sliding back after receiving clear proofs

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.)

209. فَإِن زَلَلْتُم مِّنۢ بَعْدِ مَا جَآءَتْكُمُ ٱلْبَيِّنَٰتُ فَٱعْلَمُوٓا۟ أَنَّ ٱللَّهَ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ
209.  And if ye slide back after the clear proofs have come unto   you, then know that Allah is Mighty, Wise.
209.  Fa-‘in- zalaltum-mim-  ba’-di maa jaaa-‘atkumul-Bayyi-naatu fa’-lamuuu ‘annAllaaha ‘Aziizun- Hakiim.


 ‘Al-Bayyi-naatu – (the clear proofs) it means those orders and instructions which have no doubt and intricacy of any kind. For instance, having Faith to believe in One God, having Belief in the rightfulness of the Last Messenger of God Almighty (Muhammad’s truism) (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) and the commands about the prayers. The entire Command of this kind had reached already the Jews and other groups.

Zalaltum – (you slide back) this word is from zallah which literally means ‘to reel, to stagger, to slip, to err. It happens also without discretion. So we have known from it too that being misled due to forgetting can be cause of sin also. So the repentance is required to be forsworn.

 ‘Aziizun – (The Mighty, The Powerful) it means the Entity who can punish when and whatever He desires. It can be translated as The Dominant.

Hakiim – (The Wise) here its meaning will be ‘The Entity who punishes always at the right time and in this punishment, a great expedience is hidden because He is The Wise.

It is good luck of human being that Allah Almighty arranged a series of Prophets (peace be upon them) with excellent Mercy and Kindness for guidance. To show him the straight path and cause him embracing to success, Allah Almighty continued sending His Selected Messengers (peace be upon them) in different nations from time to time. Those Messengers (peace be upon them) used to show the right path to the people who forgot and caused to save the straying people from the whirlpool, improved their moralities and cleaned them from the evil. But history of the world tells that unlucky people violated them, sometimes exiled and sometimes killed them. They dug the pit hole for themselves at their own by behaving like this.

At the end Allah Almighty sent His Last Messenger (Muhammad) (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him). Messenger of God Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) explained the heavenly teachings to the people of the world, showed them acting upon these teachings with His (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) good attitude, proved by creating a group of righteous and respectable people with His companionship and company that these are the clear orders of Allah Almighty. And the success can be gotten by acting upon them.

How much misfortune of the mankind is that; in spite of getting so great dignity he deflects away from it, acts against it and becomes its enemy? These evildoers will surely be punished. Because there is no reason and excuse remained for them now. The Argument of Allah Almighty has been established. None of them can say now that the True Religion didn’t come unto us.
