Quran's Tafhim ( explanation)

*100). The Jews not only reviled the Prophet (peace be on him) and his followers but also God's chosen angel, Gabriel, denouncing him as their enemy, and branding him as the angel of curse rather than of blessing.
*101). Since Gabriel communicated the revealed messages with God's approval the abuses of the Jews which were apparently aimed at Gabriei should be considered as directed at God.
*102). They abused Gabriel because he had brought the Qur'an from God, and since the Qur'an on the whole confirms the Torah this too became a co-sharer in those abuses.
*103). Here there is a subtle suggestion that the wrath of the Jews was, in fact, directed against true guidance and righteousness even though acceptance of these would have brought them good tidings as to their own success.
