3:100 O ye who believe! If ye obey a party of those who have received the Scripture they will make you disbelievers after your belief.
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِن تُطِيعُوا فَرِيقًا مِّنَ الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ يَرُدُّوكُم بَعْدَ إِيمَانِكُمْ كَافِرِينَ
O ye who believe! If ye obey a party of those who have received the Scripture they will make you disbelievers after your belief.
হে ঈমানদারগণ! তোমরা যদি আহলে কিতাবদের কোন ফেরকার কথা মান, তাহলে ঈমান আনার পর তারা তোমাদিগকে কাফেরে পরিণত করে দেবে।
If you obey them, to those who are given the scriptures
They will make you disbelieve
after you believed
What does it mean obeying them? In what regard? In what respect? When you work under them and they gave you an instruction, you don’t obey them? Is it that? Not at all, right?
Absolutely it is in the matter where Allah, the only lawgiver, has a clear command or a clear law or a clear system for you but you do not follow that rather you follow the system of Jews and Christians, then what it is regarded as you “obeying” them.
Just a basic daily life example of following Jews and Christians:
When you greet another Muslim saying “Hi” or “Good Morning” where Allah gave you a system on how to greet a Muslim by saying “Salam” then you are obeying them. Thus when you say “Bye Bye” to give farewell to another Muslim you are just obeying the kafir’s.
And thus as a Muslim business person when you put ‘$0.99’ as your product price instead of putting it straight ‘$1.00’, you have no idea how closely inch by inch you are following Kafir’s system
and walking towards disbelieving (not me, Allah said that, they will make you kafir). And you have no idea how you can repay that ‘$0.01’ on the day of Qiyamah.
Allah knows best.
So, what can you do? Check in every matter in your life, when there is a system for you from your Rabb, Allah, the best guide, then leave the system of Kafirs.
What are these systems that you and I follow in our everyday life, knowingly being unmindful about Allah, the Most High and unknowingly being ignorant, because we are now surrounded by the system of kafir’s that goes against Allah’s system? To know them read and subscribe to this blog
May Allah, the most forgiving, save us from disbelief and make us those who follow Allah’s system in every aspect of life. Ameen.
