In the Qur'an Allah has mentioned the stories of the Ummah Previously, as a lesson for the ummah who came after. Among the so-called dalalm of the Qur'an is the story of a people condemned and altered by God became an ape. This story is not a fairy tale per se, because it is God condemning those who were Jews of the Children of Israel to apes because they seek to circumvent God's law.
The people lived long before the time of the Prophet Muhammad, They live in a village close to the sea. According to the scholars of interpretation, not all of them were turned into apes because there were still devout ones Commandments. Furthermore Imam Az-Zuhri stated that the name of the village is Thabariyah near Thabariyah lake, but in interpretation Al-Qurthubi mentions other different histories, such as Maqnat, Aylah, or Madyan (an area located between Aylah and Ath-Thuur), which is where All of them are on the shores of the sea.
At that time, in the book of the Torah of God stipulates that on Saturdays it is devoted to worship to Him and it is forbidden to take fish in the sea. However, God gives test to them with the appearance of abundant fish right on Saturday. And other than on Saturday, it was as if the fish were moving away and vanished. of them.
Seeing this, there is some of the groups who put fish traps on Friday evening so that acquired a lot of fish to be taken on Sunday. However, still this has violated God's commandments. The other part is that they who sees this infringing act without giving warning. Then here is which made them cursed to be apes.
This story is not figuratively, because it is listed in sura Al-A'raaf verse 163 "And ask on The Children of Israel about the land located near the sea, when they transgressed rules on Saturdays, in time comes to them their fish floating on the surface of the water, and on days that are not Saturday the fishes did not come to them. Thus We tried them because they ungodly".
Other evidence is in Sura Al-Baqarah verse 65 "And verily ye have known the people who transgressed among you on Saturday, and then We said to them 'be you despicable ape'". Referred to as a despicable ape, because reflects the actions of greedy Jews and tries to circumvent the law God.
From the story, some assume that the apes and pigs that exist today are the result of the descendants of the jews who were condemned, even though the Messenger of Allah had mentioned in H.R Muslim, "And verily Allah does not destroy or not advocating to a people (people), then God will make them have offspring. And indeed apes and khinzir (pigs) existed before (tragedy) condemnation of the Children of Israel (Jews)" . According to the hadith, it can be withdrawn The conclusion that the apes and khinzir (pigs) that exist today are not derived of Jewish descent condemned by God.
The Scholars of interpretation dissenting from later histories about the nation's cursed apes Jew. There are some who think that after that they just died After three days and three nights. This is so that they feel the humiliation in the world before they were turned off. There are some who say that after become apes, God returns them back to their original form, and who changes It is their heart to be made as careful as greedy apes.
Half history interpreters i.e. according to history of Ibn Isaac, Ibn Jarir and Ibn Abbas, all of them were condemned so that transfigured into a monkey. But after they became those monkeys, they can't eat and can't drink, so it's not until three days after That change, they all died.
Another half-interpreter, interprets that they were sworn by God, so that they immediately exchanged into apes, walking with feet four, gears alternate with rivals. But more great is the doom, that the body remains the human body, but the temperament has become the temperament of the ape. They come Groups to the fields of people. Not only did the produce of the field be eaten by him a belly to an excess of its neck, but banana stems, kettle, the corn that meets them is broken and broken. After their results take, the base they live on is damaged anyway, so that it cannot grow again. When pursued they flee, and from far away or in the forests, They sneered at the people who chased him.
Clearly, however, their descendants have been cut off. So it is not correct to state that the apes that exist today are descendants of the Jews. Wallahu A'lam bish Showab.
