The People Of The Scripture Embezzle

LESSON # 372 FROM HOLY QUR’AN

The People Of The Scripture Embezzle

Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter - 3)
Verse –75 & 76 of  200, Section –8    (Part – 3)

75.  Among the People of the Scripture there is he who, if thou trust him with a weight of treasure, will return it to thee. And among them there is he who, if thou trust him with a piece of gold, will not return it to thee unless thou keep standing over him. That is because they say: We have no duty to the Gentiles. And they tell a lie concerning Allah knowingly.           

76.  Nay, but (the chosen of Allah is) he who fulfilleth his pledge and wardeth off (evil); for lo! Allah loveth those who ward off (evil).         
75.  Wa  min  ‘Ahlil-Kitaabi  man ‘in-  ta’-manhu  bi-qintaa-riny-yu-‘addihiii  ‘ilayk.  Wa  minhum-man  ‘in  ta’-manhu  bi-diinaaril-laa  yu-‘addihiii  ‘ilayka  ‘illaa  maa  dumta  ‘alayhi  qaaa-‘imaa.  Zaalika  bi-‘annahum  qaaluu  laysa  ‘alaynaa  fil-‘um-miyyiina  sabiil.  Wa  yaquu-luuna  ‘alallaahil-kaziba  wa  hum  ya’-lamuun.         

76. Balaa  man  ‘awfaa  bi-‘ahdi-hii  wattaqaa  fa-‘innallaaha  yu-hibbul-Muttaqiin.            



Lesson
       
Along-with the religious embezzlement, now the recital of the People of the Scripture regarding their worldly dishonesty has also been mentioned. Those people, who cannot be honest for a little sum, how can we rely on them that they will be faithful in the religious matters?

Some people from them are those who, if you trust them with a piece of gold, they will belie and will not return it to you unless you keep standing over them each time. Surely all persons of them are not equal. Some are those who, if you trust them with a weight of treasure, they will return it to you. They will never embezzle. These are the honest and well-disposed persons, who are fed up with Judaism and becoming servants of Islam, likewise Abdullah bin Salaam (Radi AllahuAnhu) etc. The Jews adduce this argument in favor of their worldly embezzlement and dishonesty, “We have no duty to the Gentiles of the Arab, who are not upon our religion. Their wealth is lawful for us in all respect. There is no sin to embezzle the trust of non-religious persons, particularly those persons who have left their religion and become Muslims. Whereas Allah Almighty has not given them any right like this. Breach of trust is prohibited as per commands of Allah Almighty. Moreover, the person, who will be honest, trustworthy and faithful, remains under the fear of Allah Almighty and abstains from censured manners; Allah Almighty likes him/her.
