SELL THE VERSES

30 May

وَآمِنُوا بِمَا أَنزَلْتُ مُصَدِّقًا لِّمَا مَعَكُمْ وَلَا تَكُونُوا أَوَّلَ كَافِرٍ بِهِ ۖ وَلَا تَشْتَرُوا بِآيَاتِي ثَمَنًا قَلِيلًا وَإِيَّايَ فَاتَّقُونِ

And believe in what I have sent down confirming that which is with you, and be not the first to disbelieve in it. And do not exchange My signs for a small price, and only fear Me. (2:41)

  • The addition of small price implies that it is permissible to sell the verses if the price is really high.
  • If Allah SWT said do not sell my verses, it would mean that no matter what the price is it is impermissible.
  • Is it permissible to sell the verses of Allah? Of course not. How do we understand this?
  • Hassan al-Basri RA said the ‘small price’ refers to this world and everything in it i.e. if a person sold the entire world for one verse it would be little compared to the hereafter.
