2 www.understandquran.com In this lesson… Qur ’ an: Surah An-Kafiroon Grammar: Imperative and Negative Imperative (100’s of words of Qur’an on this pattern) Learning tip: 7+ 2 Homeworks
3 www.understandquran.com Surah Al-Kafiroon Memorize the meanings of each word thoroughly.
6 www.understandquran.com سُورَۃُ الْكَافِرُون قُلْ يَا أَيُّهَا الْكَافِرُونَ (1) لَا أَعْبُدُ مَا تَعْبُدُونَ (2) وَلَا أَنتُمْ عَابِدُونَ مَا أَعْبُدُ (3) وَلَا أَنَا عَابِدٌ مَّا عَبَدتُّمْ (4) وَلَا أَنتُمْ عَابِدُونَ مَا أَعْبُدُ (5) لَكُمْ دِينُكُمْ وَلِيَ دِينِ (6) Excellent application of what we have learnt in Grammar so far. Look at the underlined words.
7 www.understandquran.com قُلْ يَا أَيُّهَا الْكَافِرُونَ ! Allah is angry with them. Did you notice that He never addressed them directly! Should we not be alerted! Just imagine the time when we were kids (along with other brothers and sisters) and father was angry with one… Didn’t the rest of us were alerted, rather tried to please dad? Allah is angry with disbelievers. We should immediately be alerted and respond... see next slide
8 www.understandquran.com قُلْ يَا أَيُّهَا الْكَافِرُونَ ! How many times did we behave like that? How is our interaction when somebody tells us the truth. Do Istighfar. Ponder on the Greatness of Allah and our position in front of Him. O Allah! Let us not reject or neglect the truth because of our egos and positions. Let people know the dangers of following egos and traditions. Follow Qur’an/Sunnah Main problem with Kafirs? They followed their nafs, egos, income, positions, institutions, traditions etc. They refused to follow the truth in spite of knowing it.
9 www.understandquran.com كَافِر Every Non-Muslim is not Kafir (Qur’an is huda linnaas; kuntum khaira ummat…) Word Kafir itself is not an insult. Otherwise Allah would not have used it for Mulsims (After Ayatalkursi)
10 www.understandquran.com كَافِر Some Muslims think that all people know what Islam is! Through Media, internet, … Look at Muslims themselves. 90% or more don’t know what is in the Qur’an. And they expect others to know what Islam is? –This is really arrogance and forgetting one’s own job. Look at how many times the Prophet pbuh conveyed the Message to Quraish in Makkah.. for 13 years!!! How many years have we done? 13 hours so far?
11 www.understandquran.com لَا أَعْبُدُ مَا تَعْبُدُونَ Twice – to negate past and future
12 www.understandquran.com لَكُمْ دِينُكُمْ وَلِيَ دِينِ (6) Not a message to say that All religions are equal. Neither a message that we should stop Dawah. Did the Prophet stop preaching after this revelation? It was revealed in response to offer of compromise. No compromise in faith matters.
