Imam al-Nawawī (d. 671 AH) and Imam al-Qurṭubī (d. 676 AH) both stated that this was a revealed verse that was abrogated. See al-Nawawī, al-Minhāj sharḥ Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim bin Ḥajjāj (Cairo: Mu’assasat Qurtubah, 1994) 3:102 and al-Qurṭubī, al-Jāmiʿ li-aḥkām al-Qur’ān, ed. ʿAbd Allāh al-Turkī (Beirut: Mu’assasat al-Risalah, 2006), 16:83.
Al-Kirmānī (d. 796 AH) adds ...
A short historical flash back
First of all you need some historical background of the compilation of the mushaf:
During the time of the prophet () the qur'an was revealed and memorized and written on what ever was available to write on. Among the sahabah that memorized the whole qur'an during the prophet's life time were 'Abdullah ibn Masu'd (), Zaid ibn ...
Imām Sayyid Muĥammad Ibn Áābidīn al-Ĥanafī al-Shāmī [1198-1252 AH / 1784-1836 CE] writes in Radd al-Muĥtār:
His statement, “And Iblīs is with the son of Ādam during the day.”
That is, he is with all of them, except for the one whom Allāh táālā has protected from him, and He has given him the ability for that [i.e. to be with them all], just as He has given ...
As Ibn Hajar explains:
This recitation was not transmitted except through those mentioned
here and everybody else recited "By the creation of male and female"
and this is the established recitation despite the authentic chain of
transmitters of the other recitation up to Abul Darda' and those
mentioned with him. This is probably from among what ...
The Quran was revealed in seven ahruf (different ways of reciting it).
That was the recitation Abdullah ibn Masud and Abu Darda (RA) used to recite. This is the recitation we recite which was written with the agreement of the Sahabah in the mushaf.
There are many questions and answers on the site regarding the ahruf and the recitations. You can read them for ...
The ۵ indicates a period (end of the current verse and start of a new verse) in non-kufic recitations. That لا usually indicates that one must not pause here, but since this is on a period there is difference on whether one should or should not pause and either way is correct. See What's the meaning of khamsa below jim waqf sign?
The following is related in the tafsir of the verse:
Some hold that it is abrogated. The context (2:190-194) shows that it was revealed before the conquest of Makkah. This was either in the very beginning when Jihad was first made lawful or in the interim peace period after the treaty of Hudaibiya. It is superseded by the latter verses on unrestricted Jihad ...
Allah can do whatever he want to do.
But Allah will not do something which is not fitting with his attributes.
For Example: If someone ask if Allah can sleep or If he can eat?.
They are not fitting with the attributes of Almighty Allah.
So, Definitely "NO".
Allah S.W.T can do everything, but He will not do something that does not befit Him, or goes against His Attributes. It is like asking if Allah can have a son. Or even more absurdly, can Allah be God and not be God?
The question is essentially invalid at first place. A God by definition is the creator of everything. So if something is created, then it can't ...
