In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.

Continuation of Chapter 45 Al-Jathiyah ( )
(The Kneeling)



In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.
45:17
And We granted them clear Signs in affairs (of Religion): it was only after knowledge had been granted to them that they fell into schisms through insolent envy among themselves. Verily thy Lord will judge between them on the Day of Judgement as to those matters in which they set up differences.
  • Cf. x. 93. The Jews were the more to blame that they fell from Grace after all the divine favours which they had enjoyed. Their schisms and differences arose from mutual envy, which was rebellious insolence against Allah. As the next verse shows, some of them (not all) rejected the mission of the holy Prophet, also through envy that a Prophet had come among the Arabians.
  • Cf. ii. 90, and that whole passage, with its notes.
