Going astray from a right path

Surah ‘Al-Baqarah (The Cow) – Chapter – 2)

BisMillaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

 أَمْ تُرِيدُونَ أَن تَسْـَٔلُوا۟ رَسُولَكُمْ كَمَا سُئِلَ مُوسَىٰ مِن قَبْلُ وَمَن يَتَبَدَّلِ ٱلْكُفْرَبِٱلْإِيمَٰنِ فَقَدْ ضَلَّ سَوَآءَ ٱلسَّبِيلِ (108  
  
108.  Or would ye question your Messenger as Moses was questioned aforetime? He who chooseth disbelief instead of faith, verily he hath gone astray from a right path.
108.  ‘Am turiiduuna  ‘an- tas-‘aluu  Rasuulakum  kamaa  su- ‘ila  Muusaa  min-  qabl.   Wa  many-‘yatabaddalil-kufra  bil-‘iimaani  faqad zalla sawaaa-‘assabiil.

Commentary

We have studied about abrogation of the verses in the last lesson that when God Almighty abrogates or causes to be forgotten such of His Revelations, He brings (in place) one better or the like thereof. It has been proved in the light of events/incidents and history that whenever any Heavenly Scripture was caused to be forgotten or abrogated; then one better or the like thereof was revealed in place of it and the Servants of God Almighty (peace be upon them) were not disappointed from the Guidance of Allah Almighty.

Now one famous matter is being illuminated in this verse, which is Guidance about asking questions from the Merciful Messenger Muhammad (glory, grace, peace and blessings be upon Him). The Children of Israel used to try to produce various sorts of doubts in the hearts of Muslims, about the Messenger of God Almighty (glory, grace, peace and blessings be upon Him) and The Holy Qur’an, and say them to ask questions from the Prophet of Allah Almighty (glory, grace, peace and blessings be upon Him) to clear their doubts. Actually, their aim was: If the Muslims do not accept their religion then they, at the very least, will become suspicious from their own religion and Islamic teachings. Some Muslims used to ask unreasonable questions from the Last Messenger (glory, grace, peace and blessings be upon Him) due to not knowing the conspiracy and plan of the Children of Israel. God Almighty forbade them from such questioning.

There is another purpose of preventing from asking questions also from the Prophet of God Almighty (glory, grace, peace and blessings be upon Him). Due to questioning over and over, it becomes cause of increasing the difficulties and restrictions over oneself by the human beings. Easy commands become difficult. The matters, in which a person had freedom, after the Revelation of orders that individual has been restricted. It all was happened with the Children of Israel. For instance; story of the Cow does exist before us.
