Lesson

Holy Qur’aan desires to show the people Straight Path, so that they may adapt their lives, adopt those things which are useful and give up those habits and things, which are harmful. Thus there are commands as well as prohibitions too in Its verses. ‘Amr means command, order to do good acts, and Nahii means ‘prevention from doing evil deeds’.

At some places, these commands and prohibitions have been described very clearly, and at other places, circumstances and events of other people have been mentioned in such a manner that if we think about them, then we can know, “We should choose their good manners and see off evil deeds like the wicked, by meditating in the result of mischief people”.

The Jews have this badness that they are careless from the religion and follow their wishes, whereas the Christians have included many new conceptions in their religion and consider them also part of their religion.

Allaah Almighty commands, “Eat of that, which Allaah Almighty has bestowed on you as food lawful and good, and keep yourselves bound in the fixed limits of your religion without any increase or decrease”.

The Jews settled unlawful things as lawful for themselves and performed, what they wished. At the other hand, the Christians gave up even the lawful things, and became jogi and monk. You should escape from this type of increase and decrease, fear from Allaah Almighty and keep your duty to Him, obey His commands in Whom you believe, and do not decide according to your own wills.
