Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I am looking for the Quranic Ayah where Allah warns Muslim - not to be like those either before us or Jews, who throw half the book behind their backs as if they dont even know it exists....
can you tell me which ayah this is please.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
My dear beloved brother, The Ayah you requested is in the Holy Quran Surah Baqarah Chapter 2 verse 101
"And when came to them a Messenger from Allah, confirming what was with them, a party of the people of the book threw away the Book of Allah behind their backs, as if (it had been something) they did not know!"
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is only ones. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
