Qualities of the Mutaqeen

5 Nov
الذين يؤمنون بالغيب ويقيمون الصلاة ومما رزقناهم ينفقون

Who believe in the unseen, establish prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them [2:3]

  1. Surah Baqarah explains Imaan which rests in the heart (internal). On the Day of Judgement, nothing will be accepted save a pure heart.
  2. If one has imaan and believes in the unseen, establishing Salaah (external) becomes easy. Secondly, Allah did not say they pray, rather establish, implying continuity and steadfastness.
  3. If you are establishing Salaah, spending becomes easy (community). What we have provided them implies they are not giving something they own; rather spending from what has been given.
  4. The “and” makes it necessary and not sufficient. If it was “or” then one act would be sufficient (negates the argument that belief is enough).

الَّذِينَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِالْغَيْبِ وَيُقِيمُونَ الصَّلَاةَ وَمِمَّا رَزَقْنَاهُمْ يُنفِقُونَ
