Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan delves into an in-depth analysis of Ayah 114-115 of Surat Al-Baqarah.
One should keep in mind three different incidents connected with the three groups, all of which were in one way or another guilty of preventing people from worshiping Allah SWT. What were they? The Ustadh elaborates for a sound understanding.
Through this Ayah number 114, Allah SWT lays down a permanent law for all people. It is not permissible to desecrate mosques and hinder people from the remembrance of Allah SWT. Whoever does this is unjust and cruel and he will be laced with humiliation in this world and dire punishment in the next. It is from the etiquette of mosques that one should enter them with humility and respect, fearing Allah SWT or being conscious of Allah SWT in one’s heart.
The idolaters compelled the Prophet ﷺ and his Companions RA to migrate from Makkah to Madinah, thus separating them from the Ka’bah. Ayah 115 is a befitting answer to the objections of the Jews and also brings comfort to the Prophet ﷺ and his Companions RA. Allah SWT cannot be limited to one fixed direction. He is everywhere and surrounds everything. What really matters is obeying the commands of Allah SWT. In order to win His pleasure, one has to orient oneself according to what He Himself has determined.
