Episode Notes

Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan delves into Ayat 106 of the magnificent Surah Al Baqarah. The Abrogation of the Ayaat and the Wisdom behind it forms the core of this amazing lecture.

Allah is describing the authenticity of the Book of Allah – the Qur’an to the Israelites who refuse to accept it citing that they already had the Tawrah as their religious scripture.

The Ayah declares that if Allah SWT chooses to abrogate a command in a certain Ayah while retaining the Ayah itself as a part of the Qur’an, or chooses to remove an Ayah, there is nothing objectionable in it. Allah SWT alone knows the Wisdom that lies in His choice. Allah SWT being Omnipotent and Omniscient possesses the authority to change His commandments as He likes.

What is Naskh? The meaning of Naskh in the case of commandments is removing the commandment and replacing it by another. Why change a command? Allah SWT says, “We bring forth [one] better than it or similar to it…” The scholars explained that better means better in terms of the benefits that it offers or something that is easier in implementation.

We are also acquainted with 5 different types of Naskh in the Qur’an and what went into it. Listen intently to fully comprehend the nuances of Abrogation.
