Some of the Perils of False Argumentation!
Allaah (The Most High) said:
وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ الْجَوَارِ فِي الْبَحْرِ كَالْأَعْلَامِ
And among His Signs are the ships, in the sea, like mountains.
إِن يَشَأْ يُسْكِنِ الرِّيحَ فَيَظْلَلْنَ رَوَاكِدَ عَلَىٰ ظَهْرِهِ ۚ إِنَّ فِي ذَٰلِكَ لَآيَاتٍ لِّكُلِّ صَبَّارٍ شَكُورٍ
If He wills, He causes the wind to cease, then they would become motionless on the back (of the sea). Verily, in this are signs for everyone patient and grateful.
أَوْ يُوبِقْهُنَّ بِمَا كَسَبُوا وَيَعْفُ عَن كَثِيرٍ
Or He may destroy them (by drowning) because of that which their (people) have earned. And He pardons much.
وَيَعْلَمَ الَّذِينَ يُجَادِلُونَ فِي آيَاتِنَا مَا لَهُمْ مِنْ مَحِيصٍ
And those who dispute as regards Our Ayat may know that there is no place of refuge for them. [42:35]
وَيَعْلَمَ الَّذِينَ يُجَادِلُونَ فِي آيَاتِنَا – And those who dispute as regards Our Ayat’ in order to (declare) them untrue with their falsehood (i.e. those who seek to declare Allaah’s Aayat to be untrue by way of their false claims and arguments); مَا لَهُمْ مِنْ مَحِيصٍ -there is no place of refuge for them– that is: There is no place of escape for them that will stop the punishment from (reaching) them.
