This was hard on the Sahaba

Imam Ahmad recorded that `Abdullah (رضي الله عنه) said, “When this Ayah was revealed,

﴿الَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ وَلَمْ يَلْبِسُواْ إِيمَـنَهُمْ بِظُلْمٍ﴾

(It is those who believe and confuse not their belief with Zulm (wrong),) it was hard on the people. They said, `O Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم )! Who among us did not commit Zulm against himself’ He said,

«إِنَّهُ لَيْسَ الَّذِي تَعْنُونَ، أَلَمْ تَسْمَعُوا مَا قَالَ الْعَبْدُ الصَّالِحُ

(It is not what you understood from it. Did you not hear what the righteous servant (Luqman) said,

﴿يَبُنَىَّ لاَ تُشْرِكْ بِاللَّهِ إِنَّ الشِّرْكَ لَظُلْمٌ عَظِيمٌ﴾

(O my son! Join not in worship others with Allah. Verily! Shirk is a great Zulm (wrong) indeed.))
