khan Seena work referred to here– are the verses from Suarh e Ahzab which Fareed Paracha of (JI) has tried tactfully to manipulate and thrown it on the audience to accept as Divine Order with very little knowledge that they have.
Nice try mate — but we certaianly like to dig out that under what condition and context this surah was revealed; (that context to follow) but first let us see that how the verses from surah are ‘cherry picked’ to suit their purpose.
Verse[33:57] is picked after ignoring earlier verse[33:56] and is connected out of context to [33:61] by omitting 33:58, 59 and 60 altogether.
Surah Ahzab Chapter 33
[33:56] Allah and His angels send blessings on the Prophet. O ye who believe! you should invoke blessings on him and salute with the salutation of peace.
[33:57] Verily, those who malign Allah and His Messenger — Allah has cursed them in this world and in the Hereafter, and has prepared for them an abasing punishment.
[33:58] And those who malign believing men and believing women for what they have not earned shall bear the guilt of a calumny and a manifest sin.
[33:59] O Prophet! tell thy wives and thy daughters and the women of the believers that they should draw close to them portions of their outer coverings. That is nearer that they may thus be distinguished and not molested. And Allah is Most Forgiving, Merciful.
[33:60] If the hypocrites, and those in whose heart is a disease, and those who cause agitation in the city, desist not, We shall surely give thee authority over them; then they will not dwell therein as thy neighbours, save for a little while.
[33:61] Then they will be accursed. Wherever they are found, they will be seized, and cut into pieces.
[33:62] Such has been the way of Allah in the case of those who passed away before, and thou wilt never find a change in the way of Allah.
From above series of verses we may get clear picture that in any case the punishment as a consequences of maligning ‘Allah and his Prophet’ by the hypocrites and misguided peoples—- rests with Allah and this prerogative has not been given in the hands of any of group of Muslims even to the Prophet himself, when he was present there.
Verse 61 and 62 is also very much indicative of the fact that Allah is a living God and Allah himself takes care of all such peoples— who indulge in maligning and this has been the way of Allah.
