Interpretation of Sura an-Nur - Verse 48
Adopted from the book: "The Light of the Holy Qur'an - Interpretation of Sura an-Nur" by: "Sayyid Kamal Faghih Imani & a Group of Muslim Scholars"
48. "And when they are summoned unto Allah and His Messenger in order that he may judge between them, behold, some of them are averse;"
The sign of real faith is the acceptance of the Prophet's judgment (p.b.u.h.), and the sign of hypocrisy is rejecting his judgment. So, in this noble verse, as one obvious reason for their disbelief, the Qur'an implies that when they are invited to the Book of Allah and His ordinance and religion as well as to the judgment of His Messenger (p.b.u.h.) so that he judges between them, a part of them turn away. The holy verse in this regard says:
"And when they are summoned unto Allah and His Messenger in order that he may judge between them, behold, some of them are averse;"
That the Holy Qur'an mentions the name of the Prophet (p.b.u.h.) after the name of Allah is because of the fact that the Prophet's judgment is ordered by Allah and Allah's judgment and that of the Prophet (p.b.u.h.) are the same.
