Tafsir surat annisa ayat 140
Saturday, June 21, 2008 2:02:05 AM
[4:140] Dan sungguh Allah telah menurunkan kekuatan kepada kamu di dalam Al Qur'an bahwa apabila kamu mendengar ayat-ayat Allah diingkari dan diperolok-olokkan (oleh orang-orang kafir), maka janganlah kamu duduk beserta mereka, sehingga mereka memasuki pembicaraan yang lain. Karena sesungguhnya (kalau kamu berbuat demikian), tentulah kamu serupa dengan mereka. Sesungguhnya Allah akan mengumpulkan semua orang-orang munafik dan orang-orang kafir di dalam Jahannam,
English: And indeed He has revealed to you in the Book that when you hear Allah's communications disbelieved in and mocked at do not sit with them until they enter into some other discourse; surely then you would be like them; surely Allah will gather together the hypocrites and the unbelievers all in hell.
Allaah says concerning the one who sits with those who are speaking of kufr and falsehood:
“then sit not with them, until they engage in a talk other than that” [al-Nisaa’ 4:140 – interpretation of the meaning]
al-Tabari said: this aayah clearly indicates that it is not allowed to sit with the people of falsehood of any kind, when they are indulging in their falsehood. “(but if you stayed with them) certainly in that case you would be like them” [al-Nisaa’ 4:140 – interpretation of the meaning].
Ibn Katheer said: i.e., you would be like them in sinning.
According to a hadeeth narrated by Jaabir, the Prophet (pecace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:
“Whoever believes in Allaah and the Last Day, let him not sit at a table where wine is being served.” (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, al-Adab, 2725; classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh Sunan al-Tirmidhi, 2246).
The commentator on the hadeeth said: even if he does not drink with them, it is as if he is approving of their evil action.
So it is not permissible to sit with them or to converse with them, even if one does not drink, because if he does that he is like a silent shaytaan (devil).
If you see them, then you have to denounce them for that, and if they do not respond then leave them and keep away from them. We ask Allaah to keep us safe and sound. May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad.
