Tafseer Surah an-Nisa Ayah 50

Inventing Lies about Allah a Clear Sin

Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala says in ayah 50,

انظُرْ كَيفَ يَفْتَرُونَ عَلَى اللَّهِ الكَذِبَ

 “See how they invent a lie about Allah…”

This refers to the previous ayah where they claim purity or a high status for themselves. For example, they used to call themselves children of Allah, His loved ones, Paradise to be an exclusive place for Jews and Christians only, the inability of Fire to touch them except for a few days and their reliance on the righteous deeds of their forefathers.  

Moving on further in the ayah, Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala says,

وَكَفَى بِهِ إِثْماً مُّبِيناً

 “……and sufficient is that as a manifest sin.”

meaning, these lies and fabrications of theirs are sufficient.
