Tafseer Surah an-Nisa Ayah 89

Censuring the Hypocrites

“They wish if you disbelieve as they disbelieved so that you would be alike. So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate in the way of Allah.

In ayah 89 Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala states,

وَدُّواْ لَوْ تَكْفُرُونَ كَمَا كَفَرُواْ فَتَكُونُونَ سَوَآءً

“They wish if you disbelieve as they disbelieved so that you would be alike….”

which means, they wish that you fall into misguidance, so that you and they are equal in that regard. This is because of their extreme enmity and hatred for you. Therefore, Allah said,

فَلاَ تَتَّخِذُواْ مِنْهُمْ أَوْلِيَآءَ حَتَّى يُهَاجِرُواْ فِى سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ

“So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate in the way of Allah.”

فَإِنْ تَوَلَّوْاْ فَخُذُوهُمْ وَاقْتُلُوهُمْ حَيْثُ وَجَدتُّمُوهُمْ وَلاَ تَتَّخِذُواْ مِنْهُمْ وَلِيّاً وَلاَ نَصِيراً

“…But if they turn back, seize them and kill them wherever you find them. And do not take from among them any ally or helper.”

if they abandon Hijrah they be arrested and killed. As-Suddi said that this part of the Ayah means, “If they make their disbelief public.”
