Ben's Suggestion 1: On Qur'anic Verses
« on: August 22, 2012, 12:24:39 AM »
Salam.


I would like to suggest to our dear Admin to make "special" section concerning "about" every Qur'anic Verse, particularly on when and where it was revealed to the Last Prophet (peace be upon him); and what is the situation shortly before and after of its revelation that we "can" say connected to it, etc. So far this is the thing that is playing in my mind.

Hopefully this will be granted.  ;)

May Allah be pleased with you all, AC Team.

I would like the first verse to be explained to be 9:29. It bothers me because I can't get it's meaning right. Am I suppose to fight, cause it doesn't make sense considering that other verses speaks of peace, speak in ways which are better, if you kill a person, it would be as if you kill the whole of mankind, etc.

What is it's context? When was it revealed? Why was it revealed?

"Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger nor, acknowledge the Religion of Truth from among the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission and feel themselves subdued. (29)"

Is there a proper translation? It could be that there is an error in translation.

Just like the translation on the verse(4:34) which speaks about wife-beating.(The verse actually speaks about tapping since there is a hadith on tayamum which uses the same word in this verse)

Sura 4 - An-Nisa (MADINA) : Verse 34
Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has given the one more (strength) than the other, and because they support them from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and guard in (the husband's) absence what Allah would have them guard. As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them (first), (next), refuse to share their, beds (and last) beat them (lightly); but if they return to obedience, seek not against them means (of annoyance): for Allah is Most High, Great (above you all).
Translation : Eng-Yusuf Ali
