The scholars of falsehood are desperate to twist the clear wordings of the Qur’aan and Sunnah from their rightful places and raise bogus-arguments in an attempt to extinguish the light of Allaah and to firm up the thrones of their masters from the Taaghut rulers. The rulers who do not rule by what Allaah has revealed and have allied with the Kuffar and fought with them against the people of Tawheed and tortured and killed the ones who command good and forbid evil. These scholars have sold their Akhirah for the Dunyah thereby destroying themselves, but they will never be able to extinguish the Truth, for Allaah the Exalted and Majestic says:
“They intend to put out the Light of Allaah with their mouths. But Allaah will complete His Light even though the disbelievers hate (it). It is He who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the Religion of truth, that He may proclaim it over all religion, Even though the Pagans may detest (it).”
Most of the arguments presented by those misguided from the truth revolve around the issue of not ruling by what Allaah ta ‘ala has revealed from the famous verse of Hukm:
“Whosoever Rules by other than what Allaah has revealed they are al-Kaafiroon.”
It is therefore pertinent to start at this juncture by exhaustively analyzing this ayah before scrutinizing the bogus-arguments and downright lies of those who try to water down the issue of not ruling by what Allaah has revealed.
Context of the Ayahs
The full context of the revelation of the ‘ayahs regarding whosoever does not rule by what Allaah has revealed is as follows:
(41) Oh Messenger, let not those grieve you, who race each other into disbelief: (whether it be) among those who say ‘We believe’ with their lips but whose hearts have no faith; or it be among the Jews,- men who will listen to any lie,- will listen Even to others who have never so much As come to thee. They change the words from their (right) times and places: They say, ‘If ye are given this, take it, but if not, beware!’ if any one’s trial is intended by Allaah, Thou hast no authority in the least for Him against Allaah. For such – it is not Allaah’s will to purify their hearts. For them there is disgrace In This world, and In the Hereafter a heavy punishment.
(42) (They are fond of) listening to falsehood, of devouring Suht (Bribery). If they do come to thee, either judge between them, or decline to interfere. If you decline, they cannot hurt you in the least. If you judge, judge in equity between them – for Allaah loves those who judge in equity.
(43) But why do they come to you for decision, when they have (Their own) law before them? – Therein is the (plain) command of Allaah. Yet even after that, they would turn away; for they are not (really) people of Faith.
(44) It was we who revealed the law (to Moses): therein was guidance and light. By its standard have been judged the Jews, by the prophets who bowed (as in Islaam) to Allaah’s will, by the rabbis and the doctors of law: for to them was entrusted the protection of Allaah’s Book, and They were witnesses thereto: Therefore fear not men, but fear me, and sell not My Signs for a miserable price. And whoever rules by other than what Allaah has revealed, they are al-Kaafiroon.
(45) We ordained therein for them: ‘Life for life, eye for eye, nose or nose, ear for ear, tooth for tooth, and wounds equal for equal.’ But if any one remits the retaliation by way of charity, it is an act of atonement for Him. And whoever rules by other than what Allaah has revealed, they are al-Thaalimun.
(46) And In their footsteps we sent Jesus the son of Mary, confirming the law that had come before him: we sent Him the Gospel: therein was guidance and light, and confirmation of the law that had come before him: a guidance and an admonition to those who fear Allaah.
(47) Let the people of the Gospel judge by what Allaah hath revealed therein. And whoever rules by other than what Allaah has revealed, they are al-Faasiqun.
(48) To you we sent the Scripture In truth, confirming the Scripture that came before it, and guarding it in safety: so judge between them by what Allaah has revealed, and follow not their vain desires, diverging from the truth that has come to you. To each among you have we prescribed a law and an open way. If Allaah had so willed, He would have made you a single people, but (his plan is) to test you in what He hath given you: so strive as in a race in all virtues. The goal of you all is to Allaah. It is He that will Show you the truth of the matters in which ye dispute;
(49) And This (He commands): you judge between them by what Allaah has revealed, and follow not their vain desires, but beware of them Lest They beguile you from any of that (teaching) which Allaah has sent down to you. And if they turn away, be assured that for some of their crime it is Allaah’s purpose to punish them. And truly most men are rebellious.
(50) Do they then seek after a Judgment of (the days of) ignorance? But who, for a people whose Faith is assured, can give better Judgment than Allaah.”
