325

(47) وَلْيَحْكُمْ أَهْلُ الإِنجِيلِ بِمَا أَنزَلَ اللّهُ فِيهِ وَمَن لَّمْ يَحْكُم بِمَا أَنزَلَ اللّهُ فَأُوْلَئِكَ هُمُ الْفَاسِقُونَ

47. " So the people of the Evangel should judge by what Allah has sent down in it, and those who do not judge by what Allah has sent down, those are they that are the evil-doers."

Commentary:

Those Who Do not Judge on the Divine Law:

After referring to the revelation of Eveangel in the former verses, in this verse the Qur'an says:

" So the people of the Evangel should judge by what Allah has sent down in it, ..."

The objective meaning of this statement is that: after the revelation of Eveangel to Jesus (a.s.) , Allah ordered the followers of it to act accordingly and judge by what He had sent down in it.

Then, at the end of the verse, it emphasizes again and says:

"... and those who do not judge by what Allah has sent down, those are they that are the evil-doers."
