(salam) (bismillah) (159) إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يَكْتُمُونَ مَا أَنزَلْنَا مِنَ الْبَيِّنَاتِ وَالْهُدَى مِن بَعْدِ مَا بَيَّنَّاهُ لِلنَّاسِ فِي الْكِتَابِ أُولَئِكَ يَلعَنُهُمُ اللّهُ وَيَلْعَنُهُمُ اللَّاعِنُونَ " Verily, those who conceal what We have revealed of the clear evidence and the guidance, after We made it clear for mankind in the Book; they are those that Allah does curse them and (also) curse them (all) those who curse (such ones) ." [Quran 2:159] Occasion of Revelation: Jalal-id-Din Suyuty has narrated in his book, 'Asbab-un-Nuzul, from Ibn-Abbas that several Muslim people, such as Ma'ath-ibn-Jabal, Sa'd-ibn-Ma'ath, and Kharijat-ibn-Ziyd asked scholars of the Jews several questions about some subjects in the Torah (which concerned the advent of the Prophet (p.b.u.h.) ) . They concealed the reality of the subject and, (in their answers) , did not refer to the main idea. The above verse was revealed about them. Lubab-un-Nuqul fi 'Asbab-in-Nuzul, p. 22 An ignorant Salafi from Sipah e Yazeed forum said that this verse clearly denounces Taqaya and Shias who do Taqaya actually are subject of this verse. The only thing we have to see is that whether there is "clear evidence and guidance" in Quran regarding "Taqaya" or not. If that guidance exists then it will be proved that factually Salafis and Sipah e Yazeed are cursed them in this verse. QURANIC EVIDENCE OF TAQAYA: let us see Quranic evidence of Taqaya. (28) لاَّ يَتَّخِذِ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ الْكَافِرِينَ أَوْلِيَاءَ مِن دُوْنِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَمَن يَفْعَلْ ذَلِكَ فَلَيْسَ مِنَ اللّهِ فِي شَيْءٍ إِلاَّ أَن تَتَّقُواْ مِنْهُمْ تُقَاةً وَيُحَذِّرُكُمُ اللّهُ نَفْسَهُ وَإِلَى اللّهِ الْمَصِيرُ 28. " The believers should not take the infidels as their friends, rather than the believers, and whoever does that then nothing of Allah is his, except when you guard yourselves against them, guarding carefully; and Allah warns you to be cautious of (disobeying) Him; and toward Allah is the destination." [Quran 3:28] So one can conceal one's faith for protection. It is worth mentioning that Taqaya (concealing) one's faith is just for the sake of protection but where there is no danger and where there is chance of harm to the religion then Taqaya (concealing one's faith) is not allowed. (106) مَنْ كَفَرَ بِاللَّهِ مِنْ بَعْدِ إيمانِهِ إِلاَّ مَنْ أُكْرِهَ وَ قَلْبُهُ مُطْمَئِنٌّ بِالْإيمانِ وَ لكِنْ مَنْ شَرَحَ بِالْكُفْرِ صَدْراً فَعَلَيْهِمْ غَضَبٌ مِنَ اللَّهِ وَ لَهُمْ عَذابٌ عَظيمٌ He who disbelieves in Allah after believing in Him; not he who has been compelled, while his heart is still content with the faith, but he who opens (his) breast to disbelief, upon them shall rest wrath from Allah and for them shall be a great chastisement. " [Quran 16:106] In the early days of Islam, the pagans of Mecca martyred the parents of 'Ammar Yasir, a true believer, while torturing them for embracing Islam. As soon as it was 'Ammar's turn to be tortured, he declared those words which the pagans wanted him to utter and saved his life. 'Ammar was then blamed for having abandoned Islam by some persons. He called on the blissful Prophet (p.b.u.h.) while crying. The Prophet caressed him, saying: "If your life is at stake again, utter these words and save yourself; you are faithful all over. " (Tafsir Qurtubi, Safi, Burhan and Majma'- ul- Bayan and the books of Muslim scholars concerning the issue of concealing of faith) This procedure is called/ taqqiyah/ in Islam which requires certain rules. However, we must know that there are certain cases of 'Taqiyyah'. At times, it is compulsory while at other times, one must stand up to the end and utter his words, and not engage in Taqiyyah, like what the sorcerers of Pharaoh did. They embraced the faith as soon as they noticed the miracle of Moses (a.s.) not fearing the threats of Pharaoh and telling him to do what he wanted, and that they would not abandon their faith. Pharaoh martyred them all, the resistance of whom has been praised by the Qur'an. Certainly, the act of Taqiyyah (concealing of faith) is not a sign of excommunication, weakness, fear, retreat, loss of faith, and submission. On the contrary, it is a kind of cover- up and a strategy for the preservation of powers and programs. In Islamic quotations, it has been likened to a shield and 'guarding' against 'something' and 'boundaries'. Thus, in this noble verse, the Qur'an implies that he who disbelieves in Allah and abandons Islam, embracing paganism will be entangled with Allah's outrage and there is a great punishment awaiting him; unless he is compelled to utter words of blasphemy while feeling heartily in a different way, in which case, he will not be held responsible. CONCLUSION: Now this is proved beyond the shadow of any doubt that there is clear proof of 'Taqaya" in holy Quran and the Salafis/Wahabis are the people who are concealing this clear proof of Quran and saying that Taqaya is not allowed or it is against Islam. So the verse is cursing them because of concealing clear proof and guidance of Holy Quran. Wrath of Allah be upon Yazeediites.
