An Effort in Facilitation

Inspiring verses of all times!

These verses, on the one hand, inspire Muslims that Islam will always be the dominant power on earth and, on the other hand, they are Almighty Allah’s open declaration to all enemies of Truth and Justice that their nefarious designs and sinister moves against Islam and Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) will not work and that their plans to stop Islam from spreading will never be successful! 

61:8

“They want to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah will perfect His light, although the disbelievers dislike it.” (Surah As-Saff 61: 8)

9:32

“They want to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah refuses except to perfect His light, although the disbelievers dislike it.” (Surah Tawbah 9: 32)

9:33

” It is He who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth to manifest it over all religion, although they who associate others with Allah dislike it.” (Surah Tawbah 9: 33)

Ibn Kathir in his tafseer on verses 32 and 33 of Surah Tawbah writes thus:

“32. They want to extinguish Allah’s Light with their mouths, but Allah will not allow except that His Light should be perfected even though the disbelievers hate (it).

33. It is He Who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth, to make it superior over all religions even though the idolators hate (it).

Allah says, the disbelieving idolators and People of the Scriptures want to ‘extinguish the Light of Allah’. They try through argument and lies to extinguish the guidance and religion of truth that the Messenger of Allah was sent with. Their example is the example of he who wants to extinguish the light of the sun or the moon by blowing at them! Indeed, such a person will never accomplish what he sought. Likewise, the light of what the Messenger was sent with will certainly shine and spread. Allah replied to the idolators’ desire and hope,

“but Allah will not allow except that His Light should be perfected even though the disbelievers (Kafirun) hate (it)” 9:32

Linguistically, a Kafir is the person who covers something. For instance, night is called Kafiran ‘covering’ because it covers things with darkness….”
