Error and Loss
Surah ‘Al-Baqarah (The Cow) – Chapter – 2)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
أُو۟لَٰٓئِكَ ٱلَّذِينَ ٱشْتَرَوُا۟ ٱلضَّلَٰلَةَ بِٱلْهُدَىٰ فَمَا رَبِحَت تِّجَٰرَتُهُمْ وَمَا كَانُوا۟مُهْتَدِينَ (16
‘Ishtaraw – (They purchased), to get a thing exchanged with the other. This word is used for the both ‘buying’ and ‘selling’. Hypocrites had option of choice to accept either Belief or otherwise. But they chose the way of infidelity and hypocrisy.
Maa rabihat – (Did not prosper), this word has been derived from rabah, which means “profit”.
The consequence of hypocrisy has been stated in this lesson that these people went astray leaving the path of Guidance. That is to say; that excellence of the humanity, which is a source of Guidance from Allah Almighty, due to which, every human being can acquire goodness and comfort of perpetual Life, these hypocrites extinguished that Light of the humanity. And which Guidance they had to attain, they rejected it and produced bad habits into themselves and evil manners. And they thought themselves that they had tried to strike a good bargain, by saying verbally that God is One and keeping infidelity in their hearts. And they were glad on it that how is this good wonderful bargaining?
God Almighty commands that they are losers in this bargaining. They reaped casual and sensual, destroy-able advantages, by passing their entire life for this purpose. It were good business if they had achieved the comfort of their perpetual Lives, by spending their wealth and sacrificing casual lives in the Way of God Almighty. But they have destroyed also their real capital.
This straying and lose of hypocrites is the result of their deeds, which has been discussed in the previous verses (lessons), that verbally they say: We believe in Allah and in the Day of Resurrection, whereas they do not believe, but wish to deceive God Almighty and the Believers. The disease of infidelity and hypocrisy is in their hearts. They create disturbance in the name of correctness, and consider that the sincere people and the believers are stupid. They assure them that they are believers and cooperative, but when they join their bad character companions and leaders, then they are theirs’.
