Al-Maidah · Juz 6 · Qur'an Tafseer

Lessons from Surah al-Ma’idah Ayah 1


– We learn about the virtue of emaan because Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala addresses يَـأَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ .

– We learn about the obligation of fulfilling our commitments. Our commitment to Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala, when He says this is haram and that is halal, we have to accept it.

– We also learn about those contracts that are legal, whether they at an individual or collective level, verbal or written, short-term or long-term; all must be fulfilled.

– The terms and conditions mentioned in the contract must also be honored.

– Fulfilling contracts and promises is a sign of a believer. If a person doesn’t fulfill his contract, this indicates there’s some problem in his emaan. This is resemblance to the characteristics of a hypocrite.

– Hunting is not permissible in a state of ihraam or in the area of haraam. Why is hunting forbidden during Hajj and Umrah? When you are wearing the ihraam, you are going for a particular task. You should focus on your purpose and not be distracted.

– We learn about the respect and honor that one must show to ihraam and haraam.

– Being the creation of Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala, we must submit to His commands.
