وَلَا تُؤْمِنُوا إِلَّا لِمَن تَبِعَ دِينَكُمْ قُلْ إِنَّ الْهُدَىٰ هُدَى اللَّهِ أَن يُؤْتَىٰ أَحَدٌ مِّثْلَ مَا أُوتِيتُمْ أَوْ يُحَاجُّوكُمْ عِندَ رَبِّكُمْ ۗ قُلْ إِنَّ الْفَضْلَ بِيَدِ اللَّهِ يُؤْتِيهِ مَن يَشَاءُ ۗ وَاللَّهُ وَاسِعٌ عَلِيمٌ
And do not trust except those who follow your religion.” Say, “Indeed, the [true] guidance is the guidance of Allah . [Do you fear] lest someone be given [knowledge] like you were given or that they would [thereby] argue with you before your Lord?” Say, “Indeed, [all] bounty is in the hand of Allah – He grants it to whom He wills. And Allah is all-Encompassing and Wise.”
যারা তোমাদের ধর্মমতে চলবে, তাদের ছাড়া আর কাউকে বিশ্বাস করবে না। বলে দিন নিঃসন্দেহে হেদায়েত সেটাই, যে হেদায়েত আল্লাহ করেন। আর এসব কিছু এ জন্যে যে, তোমরা যা লাভ করেছিলে তা অন্য কেউ কেন প্রাপ্ত হবে, কিংবা তোমাদের পালনকর্তার সামনে তোমাদের উপর তারা কেন প্রবল হয়ে যাবে! বলে দিন, মর্যাদা আল্লাহরই হাতে; তিনি যাকে ইচ্ছা দান করেন এবং আল্লাহ প্রাচুর্যময় ও সর্বজ্ঞ।
My Critical Reasoning:
Who were asked not to trust?
Those who do not follow ‘your Deen’ (deenukum, in Arabic)
What is that ‘Deen’ and what does ‘Deen’ really means?
The systems, guidelines laws from Allah in every aspect of life which popularly known as ‘shariah’
But what does ‘shariah’ means today?
It only means how to conduct marriages and settle dispute in marriages, how to distribute wealth and few other family matters
What about laws about Tax, Financial Laws, Criminal Laws (killing, adultery, homo sexuality, stealing etc)
We follow those from kuffar’s!
When there is law from Allah, the Most Wise, you do not follow that but you follow Kuffar’s? What that puts you?
We put down Allah and disgrace Allah, the Most Honoured (I am shivering my brother, I can’t hold my tears!) and we raise the kuffar! (Yeah Rabb, How merciful you are! You still let me breath!)
And that we know as SHIRK, A common term which do not have any impact on us any more.
How this happened my brother! How we came to this far?
Many reasons! But I will discuss one Major cause briefly. It is the impact of translation and understanding of the word ‘Deen’ as ‘religion’.
All Muslim think their ‘religion’ is Islam. And they are taught the 5 pillars that Islam stand on which are Faith, Salat, Siam, Hajj, Zakat and that’s what they know as their ‘religion’.
Today, you take a Islamic degree or Shariah course, a short course, a diploma or a university degree anywhere in the world, any best Islamic university in the world, a graduate will come out learning Islam and “Tawheed”, the most uttered word in their mouth but in their life they will follow the systems of Kuffar’s, in the mind set they are same as the kuffar’s because they are taught all these rituals but they are also taught ‘Deen’ means ‘religion’ (which is limited to rituals as what the kuffar think and limited about their ‘religion’ too) therefore, they are not concerned about ‘Allah’s systems and guidelines for life’
Then after that they will preach to
or in ‘Yes/No’ memorandum for gay marriage,
they will preach “we don’t need Khilafah”,
and they will choose to give ‘baya’ to those ‘Muslim’ govt. [Actually Mushrik as I am not allowed (!) to say Kafir!) who follows the law from Kuffars] as an alternative to the Baya to the “Khalifah of Muslims”
and then on the other hand, they set
‘Islamic’ banking under the realm of kuffar’s Riba system,
they set ‘Islamic’ House loan fueling kuffar’s Riba business,
they set ‘Islamic’ school following kuffar’s system span by span.
they engage in kuffar’s democracy to change it to ‘Islamic’ democracy.
So let’s get back to the original topic, who Allah instructed not to trust?
Those who do not follow “your Deen”
Now, who that include?
No doubt about kuffars,
Known and recognized Mushrik (Idolaters)
and those so called ‘Muslims’ (actually Mushrik those who follow kuffar’s system as their guidelines for life)
And Allah knows best. Yeah Allah, Yeah Rabb, guide Muslims. Ameen.
