TAFSEER OF SURATUL BAQARAAH
By:

VERSE: 89

“And when there came to them (the Jews), a Book (this Qur'aan) from Allah confirming what is with them (the Tawrah) and the Injil (Gospel), although previously they had invoked Allah (for the coming of Muhammad ) in order to gain victory over those who disbelieved, then when there came to them that which they had recognised, they disbelieved in it. So let the curse of Allah be on the disbelievers.”

The Jews were awaiting the Prophet's coming, but They disbelieved in Him when He was sent

 

 

 

The irony of the actions of the Jews is somewhat amazing and baffling. According to their scriptures mention of the coming of Muhammad Sallallaahu Alaihi Wa Sallam was made which not only were they well aware of but also eagerly awaited his coming. However when he finally came to them, they rejected him.

Allah Ta’ala says,

 (And when there came to them) meaning, the Jews,

 (a Book from Allah) meaning, the Qur'aan that Allah sent down to Muhammad Sallallaahu Alaihi Wa Sallam,

 (confirming what is with them) meaning, the Tawrah. At this juncture Allah Ta’ala reminds them of their supplication to him for victory in the verse “although afore time they had invoked Allah Ta’ala (for the coming of Muhammad ) in order to gain victory over those who disbelieved) meaning, before this Messenger came to them, they used to ask Allah Ta’ala to aid them by his arrival, against their polytheistic enemies in war. They used to say to the polytheists, "A Prophet shall be sent just before the end of this world and we, along with him, shall exterminate you, just as the nations of `Ad and Iram were exterminated.''

Based on the above the irony of their case is glaring.

Scholars have written that the Jews used to invoke Allah Ta’ala (for the coming of Muhammad ) in order to gain victory over the Aws and Khazraj, before the Prophet was sent. When Allah Ta’ala sent him to the Arabs, they rejected him and denied what they used to say about him. Hence, Mu`adh bin Jabal and Bishr bin Al-Bara' bin Ma`rur, from Bani Salamah Radiyallaahu anhuma said to them, `O Jews! Fear Allah Ta’ala and embrace Islam. You used to invoke Allah Ta’ala for the coming of Muhammad when we were still disbelievers and you used to tell us that he would come. You even went further and described him to us. ' Salam bin Mushkim from Bani An-Nadir replied, `He did not bring anything that we recognize. He is not the Prophet we told you about.' On this response of Salam bin Mushkim, Allah Ta’ala then revealed this verse.

 Others scholars have written that the Jews used to ask Allah to send Muhammad so that they would gain victory over the Arab disbelievers. They used to say, `O Allah! Send the Prophet that we read about - in the Tawrah - so that we can torment and kill the disbelievers alongside him.' When Allah sent Muhammad and they saw that he was not one of them, they rejected him and envied the Arabs, even though they knew that he was the Messenger of Allah. Hence, Allah Ta’ala revealed:

 “Then when there came to them that which they had recognized, they disbelieved in it. So let the curse of Allah be on the disbelievers. ''
