In Surah Al-Baqarah (2:42), Allah, Al-Haqq (The Ultimate Truth), addresses the Jews, beginning in ayat (verse) 40, where he reminds them to remember the Blessing and the Covenant bestowed on them, and then advises them to accept the Revelation of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) which confirms the scripture they received and proclaims the advent of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.), to not be the first to reject the Truth, to not sell the verses which they altered and corrupted for money, especially those about the Prophet, and to fear Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala. In this ayat, Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala tells them to not talbisu (cover) al-Haqq (the Truth) with al-batil (the falsehood). Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala has sent down al-Haqq and no one must conceal, confuse, obscure nor mix it with lies, distortions and corruptions. Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala uses the word talbisu from the same root as libas (clothing, garments) which we use to conceal and cover ourselves. We must not hide the truth and facts and spread lies and falsehoods. Rather we must make the Truth known and explain it correctly to everyone.
