Episode Notes

Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan continues his lecture on the topic of Naskh (Abrogation) in the Qur’an and acquaints us with a type of Naskh that if not understood appropriately can result in dire consequences.

Ayat number 5 and Ayat number 29 of Surah At Tawbah are the examples chosen in this lecture to deal with the examples of abrogation in the Qur’an. The Ayat in Surah Tawbah is up for discussion in the initial part of the lecture. The verse states:

“And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.” 

Some people have unfortunately propagated that this verse allows Muslims to fight with all Non-Muslims until they convert to Islam. The truth of the matter is that this verse only applies to the polytheistic Arabs who lived during the time of the Prophet ﷺ who had broken multiple peace treaties and were at war with the Muslims.

We are also familiarised with the concept of the absence of Bismillah at the beginning of Surah At Tawbah and the reason for the same.
