Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan delves into Ayat 104 – 106 of the esteemed Surah Al Baqarah.
Allah SWT revealed these Ayaat and forbade the believers from imitating the Jews in their intentional disrespect for the Prophet ﷺ by playing mischiefs in the meanings of Arabic words. The Ayah also announces dire punishment for whoever claims to be a believer and does not watch his speech, especially in the respect of the Prophet ﷺ.
A question might arise about why the Jews adopted such behavior? It was because of their jealousy and prejudice that the Prophet ﷺ had been chosen from the Arabs and not them. Listen intently for an in-depth analysis of the Ayats 104 105.
The Abrogation of the Ayaat and the Wisdom behind it forms the bone of discussion in Ayat 106 of Surah Al Baqarah. At first, the Muslims used to pray with their faces turned towards the Bayt Al-Maqdis (Jerusalem), later Allah SWT commanded them to turn towards the Ka’bah. But the Jews claimed that these changes were made by the Prophet ﷺ himself and not by Allah SWT. They argued that if everything that Allah revealed was good why should one command be replaced by another?
The purpose of such taunts and arguments was to sow the seed of doubt in the hearts of the Muslims. It was appropriately nullified by Allah SWT in the Ayats that follow.
