Efforts of the disbelievers

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.)

217. يَسْـَٔلُونَكَ عَنِ ٱلشَّهْرِ ٱلْحَرَامِ قِتَالٍ فِيهِ ۖ قُلْ قِتَالٌ فِيهِ كَبِيرٌ ۖ وَصَدٌّ عَن سَبِيلِ ٱللَّهِ وَكُفْرٌۢ بِهِۦ وَٱلْمَسْجِدِ ٱلْحَرَامِ وَإِخْرَاجُ أَهْلِهِۦ مِنْهُ أَكْبَرُ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ ۚ وَٱلْفِتْنَةُ أَكْبَرُ مِنَ ٱلْقَتْلِ ۗ وَلَا يَزَالُونَ يُقَٰتِلُونَكُمْ حَتَّىٰ يَرُدُّوكُمْ عَن دِينِكُمْ إِنِ ٱسْتَطَٰعُوا۟ ۚ وَمَن يَرْتَدِدْ مِنكُمْ عَن دِينِهِۦ فَيَمُتْ وَهُوَ كَافِرٌ فَأُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ حَبِطَتْ أَعْمَٰلُهُمْ فِى ٱلدُّنْيَا وَٱلْءَاخِرَةِ ۖ وَأُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ أَصْحَٰبُ ٱلنَّارِ ۖ هُمْ فِيهَا خَٰلِدُونَ
217c.  And they will not cease from fighting against you till they have made you renegades from your religion, if they can.
217c.  Wa  laa  yazaa-luuna  yuqaati-luuna-kum  hattaa  yarud-duu-kum  an- Diinikum  ‘inis- tataa-‘uu.


It has been cleared openly in this verse that till the time; the Muslims will stand firm on the religion of Allah Almighty, the Idolaters and Infidels will continue opposing them in all respect. They will not leave any stone unturned to humiliate in every situation and at every time, though they get this opportunity in the limits of Haram or during any sacred month, as they committed so at the time of Hudaybiyah. At that time; they did not care for any respect and blessing, were prepared to kill or slay due to enmity and envy against the Muslims only. And they prevented the Muslims from going to Makkah and performing the Pilgrimage (Umrah). Therefore, care should not be taken if these kinds of enemies of Islam reproach and taunt the Muslims. The Muslims should not wait for killing them due to the sacred month only.

It is evident also from this verse that the Idolaters of Makkah were very much displeased from Islam and very much they were enemy of the Truth and the Just. They were insistent with every possible strength and plan that the Muslims should turn away from their religion; they were trying their best to prevent the people from embracing Islam, compel them to believe in the false and old faiths, establish them to worship the Idols, and if possible, remove the name and sign of Islam from the face of the earth. 

There are some questions that, “Why the Infidels and Idolaters were too much opponent of Islam? Why were they pursuing to finish It? Why did they observe the beliefs of the Muslims in worse view? Why did they hate the teachings of Islam?

There are answers of above mentioned questions that they had established their religion, their politics and their culture according to own manners at that time. Their aims and purposes were limited only up to their own welfare and well-being. They wished to retain the traditions of their own society. Contrary to this, Islam delivered the message of accomplished equality and global improvement, provided equal rights to every individual being the mankind and refused to accept the existence of any particular interested society. So, those all persons who conceived at the limited scale and who were miserly and selfish, they prepared themselves for enmity and malice.

How the false could stay before the true? How the darkness might remain after entering the Light? Those people drowned themselves in their own folly and enmity, and deserved punishment forever. They were unfortunate in this world and became deserving of the Hell also on the Day of Resurrection.
