Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan delves into the Tafseer of Ayats 99 to 101 of Surah Al Baqarah.
‘”And indeed We have sent down to you manifest Ayat, and none disbelieve in them but Fasiqun.”
The Bani Israel were trying to make excuses because of the love for this world. In Ayat 99 we see that only the sinners disbelieve, as it blinds people. Sin is a blinder in the Deen. When we see a mistake in our lives, we should be very quick to exhibit gratitude to Allah (SWT) for opening our eyes and accept our mistakes as flaws.
“Is it not (the case) that every time they make a covenant, some party among them throw it aside? Nay! (the truth) is most of them believe not. And when there came to them a Messenger from Allah confirming what was with them, a party of those who were given the Scripture threw away the Book of Allah behind their backs as if they did not know!”
In Ayahs 100 and 101, we see that due to the disease of attachment to this world, we distance ourselves from Deen. If our hearts long for Deen, then Allah will remove Duniya from the heart and fill it with Deen. It’s up to us what we choose to fill it with.
