Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan delves into Ayat number 41 of Surah Al Baqarah that deals with the topic of the Israelites.
“And believe in what I have sent down confirming that which is [already] with you, and be not the first to disbelieve in it. And do not exchange My signs for a small price, and fear [only] Me.”
This Ayah reminds the children of Israel that the Qur’an which is sent down to Muhammad ﷺ, is a source of glad tidings and contains the Truth from Allah SWT and affirms what was revealed beforehand in the Tawrah and the Injil.
It asks the Israelites not to be the first to deny the Qur’an. This Ayat suggests that the man who is the first to deny and disbelieve will not only incur the sin of his own denial but also bear the additional burden of the sin of misleading all those who follow his example and will thus have to undergo a multiple punishments. Several Ayat of the Quran and the hadith of the Prophet SAW emphasize this point.
وَلاَ تَشْتَرُواْ بِآيَـتِي ثَمَنًا قَلِيلاً
It means, “Do not substitute faith in My Ayat and belief in My Prophet with the life of this world and its lusts which are minute and bound to end.”
