LESSON # 95 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)
Manifestation Of Jesus Christ
(God’s Blessings On Him)
Verse – 87a of 286, Section – 11 (Part  - 1)

And verily We gave unto Moses the Scripture and We caused a train of messengers to follow after him, and We gave unto Jesus, son of Mary, clear proofs (of Allah’s Sovereignty), and We supported him with the Holy Spirit.
Wa laqad ‘aataynaa Muu-sal-Kitaaba wa qaffaynaa mim-ba’-dihii birrusuli wa ‘aatay-naa ‘Iisabna-  Maryamal-Bayyi-naati wa ‘ayyadnaahu bi-ruu-hil-qudus.

Lesson

Qaffaynaa – (We caused a train of messengers to follow) after the Prophet Moses chain of Prophets (peace be upon Them) remained coming continuously between the children of Israel. Out of Them famous Prophets are David, Zachariah, John, Yusha’ and Jesus (peace be upon Them).

‘Iisaa – (Jesus) the Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon Him) is the last Prophet out of the Prophets from the children of Israel (peace be upon Them). No Prophet came in this world from the children of Israel after the Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon Him). After Him Prophet-hood went towards the children of Ishmael. In this dynasty the Last Prophet and Messenger Muhammad (grace, peace and blessings on Him) was born and after Him (grace, peace and blessings on Him) neither any prophet has come and nor will come. It means that the prophet-hood has finished on Him (grace, peace and blessings on Him). The Prophet Jesus Christ conveyed this good news particularly about gracing with the Last Messenger’s presence (grace, peace and blessings on Him). The year belonging to Jesus starts from the year of His death (peace be upon Him). Nasira is a town in the country of Syria which was His Ancestors’ native country. Due to this relation the people say Him Jesus Christ Nasri (Masiih Nasri).

Maryama – (Mary) (God’s Blessings on Her) Her father’s name was Imran. She belonged to a very noble family out of the children of Israel. She was also very modest. The Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon Him) was born from Her womb without father.

‘Iisabna- Maryama – (Jesus son of Mary) it signifies that the Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon Him) was also a mankind. May God forbid! He was not the son of God. However He was a great Prophet and Messenger (peace be upon Him) of God Almighty. Because He (peace be upon Him) was born without father so the relation is given towards mother. 

Al-Bayyi-naat - clear proofs (of Allah’s Sovereignty) there is no accommodation for tricks or arguments to deny these clear proofs. 

Ruu-hil-Qudus – (the Holy Spirit) aim of ruu-hil-qudus is the Angel Gabriel (peace be upon Him). He used to bring the Messages of God Almighty towards the Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon Them). He helped the Prophet Jesus (peace be upon Them) in each difficult situation so He is being narrated particularly here in this verse.


LESSON # 96 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)
Sensuality and Murder Of Prophets
Verse – 87b of 286, Section – 11 (Part  - 1)

Is it ever so, that, when there cometh unto you a messenger (from Allah) with that which ye yourself desire not, ye grow arrogant, and some ye disbelieve and some ye slay?
‘Afa-kullamaa jaaa-‘akum Rasuulum- bimaa laa tahwaaa ‘anfu-sukumus-takbar-tum. Fa-fariiqan- kazzabtum wa fariiqan-taqtuluun.

Lesson

Allah Almighty has bestowed two powers to the human beings:
•        Power of Belief (faith, religion, certainty and confidence).
•        Power of action (procedure compliance, operation and practice).

If these powers are right and straight forward then the path of aim will become easy. In the previous verse the God Almighty has mentioned those bad-nesses and defects of the children of Israel which belong to their power of action. They used to slay each other themselves, exiled the weak persons. Now, in this verse weaknesses of the power of their belief and faith have been disclosed.

The God Almighty commands, “We bestowed the Book to Moses (peace be upon Him) for their guidance but when the children of Israel began to change the Orders of this Book and disobey them, then We sent many Prophets after Moses (peace be upon Them). But these people disobeyed some of Them too and slew some of Them (peace be upon Them). Then We sent Jesus Christ (peace be upon Him) with the Holy Book Gospel and to prove His truth We bestowed many Miracles to Him, and detailed the Angel Gabriel (peace be upon Him) for His help but the Jews did not shun from their habits and prepared to slay Him (peace be upon Him)”.

Now Allah Almighty says, “your circumstances are also strange, whenever any Messenger (peace be upon Him) brought the order of God Almighty against your personal means and sensual wishes, you turned your faces from it with proud, falsified some Prophets (peace be upon Them) and slew some of Them.

The Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon Him) was bestowed with many miracles by the Allah Almighty. For instance He (peace be upon Him) was bestowed to do discerning the blinds, sound the lepers and healthy the ailing, produced Him (peace be upon Him) without father and powered to speak in the cradle etc. But even then the children of Israel did not believe Him (peace be upon Him) and continued opposing and troublesome acts.  



LESSON # 97 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)
Bigotry Of The Children Of Israel
Verse – 88 of 286, Section – 11 (Part  - 1)

And they say: Our hearts are enfolded in covers. Nay, but Allah hath cursed them for their unbelief. Little is that which they believe.
Wa qaaluu quluubunaa gulf. Bal-la-‘anahumullaahu bi-kufrihim fa-qaliilam-maa yu’-minuun.

Lesson

Gulfun – (enfolded in covers) aglaf is its singular. It means, “Covered thing”, the thing which is enfolded in cover and hidden in the curtain. The Jews used to claim that their hearts are enfolded in covers and filled with the teachings of Prophet Moses (peace be upon Him). So they did not need to accept any new teachings.

La-‘anahumullaahu – (Allah hath cursed them) La’-nat means distance from the Mercy, some body’s deprival from God Almighty’s Grace and Mercy. It is also called the curse as that person is ignored by all. 

Qaliilan – (very little) it signifies that they used to disclose a dim attention towards the belief off and on and only few persons out of them used to believe. Majority was inclined towards dishonesties, faithless and violence.

When God Almighty fixed the self made faiths of the Jews as False and the Speech of Allah Almighty proved them wrong clearly then there was no trick or argument remained with the Jews. They began to say that their hearts were enfolded in the covers and nothing could effect on their hearts. They would never obey or become loyal on the instructions of any body.

The Jews used to state their false proof with much pride but the God Almighty proclaimed clearly that they are totally liars. There is no any enfolded cover. But Allah Almighty has cursed them for their chained unbelief and its covers have enfolded their hearts. They have been removed from His Mercy and Kind. So they do not believe their true religion. Out of them only a few persons have believed on the Last Messenger Muhammad (grace, peace and blessings on Him).

It has been known from this verse that if the human beings either deny from the verses of God Almighty or change them or do transposition of words between them, or disobey continuously then Allah Almighty curses them. The person like this can not attend towards the Religion and Belief.   



LESSON # 98 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)
Intentionally Disbelief
Verse – 89 of 286, Section – 11 (Part  - 1)

And when there cometh unto them a Scripture from Allah, confirming that which is in their possession—though before that they were asking for a signal triumph over those who disbelieve—and when there cometh unto them that which they know (to be true) they disbelieve therein. So the curse of Allah is on disbelievers.
Wa lammaa jaaa-‘ahum Kitaabum-min ‘indillaahi musaddiqul-limaa ma-‘ahum, wa kaanuu min- qablu yastafti-huuna ‘alal-laziina Kafaruu  Falammaa jaaa-‘ahum-maa ‘arafuu kafaruu bihii fala’-natullaahi ‘alal-kaafiriin. 

Lesson
           
Kitaabum-min ‘indillaahi – (a Scripture from Allah) here Kitaab signifies towards the Holy Qur’an, whose first address was also for the Jews besides the Infidels of Makkah. Majority of these people was living in Madina.

Limaa ma-‘ahum – (that which is in their possession) its aim is Torah, the Heavenly Book of the Jews. The Holy Qur’an has used to mention its virtue and proclaimed that the Qur’an is True Book of Allah Almighty; it verifies other previous Heavenly Books. Out of the previous Books the most famous book is Torah which was revealed on the Prophet Moses (peace be upon Him).

Yastafti-huuna (were asking for a signal triumph) this word is derived from the word Fatah. In Arabic language it means ‘wish of superiority’ and victory. In this verse its both meanings can be taken. Before the manifestation of Last Messenger Muhammad (grace, peace and blessings on Him), whenever the Jews people were defeated by the natives of Madina, at that time they used to beg from Allah Almighty for victory and help giving the sake of Last Messenger (grace, peace and blessings on Him). This affair had been included in their faith that the Last Prophet (grace, peace and blessings on Him) would come to make them free. They would get freedom after believing on Him (grace, peace and blessings on Him).

When a Book revealed by Allah Almighty for the Jews in which verification of the principles of the Divine’s law of Prophet Moses (peace be upon Him) was present then these persons disbelieved, and of whom Last Prophet (grace, peace and blessings on Him) they were waiting for, and for the sake of whom they used to pray for victory against the Infidels, when He, Known Prophet (grace, peace and blessings on Him) came towards them; they began to disbelieve Him (grace, peace and blessings on Him). Now those disbelievers have been cursed by the God Almighty due to their infidelity. And they became victim of wrath of the God Almighty.

It appears from this statement that the Jews belong to a bigoted and jealous nation and this nation has been cursed from the Mercy of God Almighty due to its bigotry and infidelity.        


LESSON # 99 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)
Result Of Opposite And Bigotry
Verse – 90 of 286, Section – 11 (Part  - 1)

Evil is that for which they sell their souls: that they should disbelieve in that which Allah hath revealed, grudging that Allah should reveal of His Bounty unto whom He will of His bondmen. They have incurred anger upon anger. And for disbelievers is a shameful doom.
Bi’-sa-mash-taraw bihii ‘anfusahum ‘any-yakfuruu bi-maaa- ‘anzalallaahu bagyan ‘any-yunazzilal-laahu min- faz-lihii ‘alaa many-yashaaa-‘u min ‘ibaadih.  Fabaaa-‘uu  bigazabin ‘alaa gazab. Wa lil-Kaafiriina ‘azaabum-muhiin.

Lesson

Allah Almighty commands in this verse that the children of Israel are limitless selfish and sensual people. They are also stubborn and jealous. They see every thing even that the orders of God Almighty from the business and national point of view and think that their benefit is either in following these orders or disobeying them. If they suppose that they will acquire their personal wishes by changing these orders or by violating them, they shall do that without hesitation.

Due to the result of bigotry and sensuality jealousy grew into them very severely. Because they wanted to get each type of favour and kind for themselves only as if it was their right by birth. Without distinction of deeds the favours and mercy of God Almighty will remain only for them.

When Prophet Muhammad (peace, grace and blessings be upon Him) was sent as the Last Messenger of Allah Almighty, the Jews felt a lot of restlessness. Fire of jealousy blazed into them that why the prophet-hood has been transferred into the children of Ishmael instead of their dynasty. Whereas they should know that the God Almighty gives His virtue him to whom He wishes and bestows Prophet-hood and Mission to him. But the Jews refused to believe the Last Messenger Muhammad (peace, grace and blessings upon Him) due to their opposite and did not return towards the right path. 

Due to the Jews’ chained infidelity and denying they have incurred anger upon anger of God Almighty. And for disbelievers is a shameful doom on the Day of Resurrection. 



LESSON # 100 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)
Refusal Of Invitation For Belief
Verse – 91 of 286, Section – 11 (Part  - 1)

And when it is said unto them: Believe in that which Allah hath revealed, they say: We believe in that which was revealed unto us. And they disbelieve in that which cometh after it, though it is the truth confirming that which they possess. Say (unto them, O Muhammad): Why then slew ye the Prophets of Allah aforetime, if ye are (indeed) believers?
Wa ‘izaa qiila lahum ‘aa-minuu bimaaa ‘anzalal-laahu   qaaluu nu’-minu bimaaa ‘un-zila ‘alaynaa wa yakfuruuna bimaa waraaa-‘ahuu wa huwal-Haqqu musaddiqal-limaa ma-‘ahum. Qul falima taqtuluuna ‘ambiyaaa-‘al-laahi min- qablu ‘in- kuntum-mu’miniin.

Lesson
   
As you have studied previously that when the Last Prophet Muhammad (peace, glory and blessings on Him) invited the children of Israel to accept Islam, they replied that their hearts have already been filled with these orders of God Almighty which are present in our Heavenly Book Torah so they have no need of any new teachings and new revelation.

Allah Almighty has disclosed in this verse that this claim of theirs’ is also false because they do not believe too even their Heavenly Books entirely and do not follow their orders. It is its proof that they have used to falsify their Prophets (peace be upon Them), moreover they have slain some of Them. If they had faith completely on that Book and its Commands they might not be so disobedient.

After providing this proof the God Almighty warns them that they have gone astray entirely from the Straight Path and have left the true religion so it is better for them to adopt the Religion Islam and admit the Holy Qur’an. It is the Last Heavenly Book. This Book verifies their Books itself and presents them in duly corrected shape. Without believing on the Last Book of Allah Almighty their claim of believing on their own Books is totally wrong.   



              LESSON # 101 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)
Worship Of Calf
Verse – 92 & 93 of 286, Section – 11 (Part  - 1)

92.  And Moses came unto you with clear proofs (of Allah’s Sovereignty), yet while he was away, ye chose the calf (for worship) and ye were wrongdoers.

93.  And when We made with you a covenant and caused the (Mount) Toor to tower above you, (saying): Hold fast that which We have given you, and hear (Our Word), they said: We hear and disobey. And (worship of) the calf was made to sink into their hearts because of their rejection (of the covenant). Say (unto them): Evil is that which your belief enjoineth on you, if ye are believers.
92.  Wa laqad jaaa-‘akum-Muu-saa  bil-Bayyinaati summat-takhaz-tumul-‘ijla mim- ba’-dihii wa ‘antum zaalimuun.

93.  Wa ‘iz ‘akhaznaa Miisaa-qakum wa rafa’-naa fawqa-kumut-Tuur. Khuzuu maaa ‘aataynaakum- bi-quwwa-tinw-wasma-‘uu. Qaaluu sami’-naa wa ‘asaynaa; wa ‘ush-ribuu fii quluubihimul-‘ijla bi-kufrihim. Qul bi’-samaa ya’-murukum- bihiii  ‘iimaanukum  ‘in-kuntum-mu’-miniin.

Lesson
   
 In the previous verse Allah Almighty has proved the claim of Jews wrong that they were following entirely on the Divine of Prophet Moses (peace be upon Him) and now they do not need any new Religion or Divine. God Almighty had commanded against it that they had falsified their many Prophets and some of Them were even slain by them.

Now in this verse God Almighty commands that He sent the Prophet Moses (peace be upon Him) and bestowed Him also a lot of miracles but knowing all this even then children of Israel began worship of the calf. They left Oneness of God and overtook infidelity and ascribed plurality to God Almighty.

Then the God Almighty made covenant from them in the base of Mountain Toor on some Orders to be obeyed. At that time due to fear of God Almighty they promised but later on they refused to admit it. So at last Allah, the Most high says, “If your faith, of which you claim, teaches you to slay the Prophets (peace be upon Them), worship the calf instead of God Almighty and break the covenant then your this faith teaches you wrong-doings. How can it be a true Belief?  

          LESSON # 102 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)
Long For Death
Verse – 94 of 286, Section – 11 (Part  - 1)

Say (unto them): If the abode of the Hereafter in the providence of Allah is indeed for you alone and not for others of mankind (as ye pretend), then long for death (for ye must long for death) if ye are truthful.
Qul  ‘in-kaanat lakumud-Daarul-‘Aakhiratu  ‘indallaahi    khaalisatam-min-duunin-naasi  fatamannawul-mawta  ‘in-kuntum  saadiqiin.

Lesson

God Almighty has refuted some other fidelity of the children of Israel in this verse. You have studied earlier that the children of Israel had stood firm on their self invented and false faiths. One out of them was that only they will go into Heaven after death and they will be alone heir of the Paradise. Except them neither any nation of the world will be forgiven and nor will enter the Paradise.

Allah Almighty has proved wrong this self invented and false belief with very simple understanding argument. The children of Israel have been told through the Last Messenger Muhammad (grace, peace and blessings upon Him) that if they were true in their claim that they were alone heir of the Heaven and they would enter the Paradise certainly then they should show long for death, because the person who has faith that after death he will certainly enter the Paradise, he would not have any fear for long of death. There are a lot of difficulties and calamities in this world and in the Paradise there are each type of blessings and facilities. So the person who claims as a heir of the Paradise, he should try to face that world to leave for good this world as soon as possible so that he may get a comfortable life for ever after getting rid of these calamities and difficulties.

This very reason has been produced for the children of Israel that if they certainly believe about the Paradise as that is only for them and except them no other nation will enter into it then they should show to long for death (for they must long for death) if they are truthful.    

LESSON # 103 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)
Greed For long life
Verse – 95 & 96 of 286, Section – 12 (Part  - 1)

95.   But they will never long for it, because of that which their own hands have sent before them. And Allah is Aware of evildoers.

96.    And thou wilt find them greediest of mankind for life and (greedier) than the idolaters. (Each) one of them would like to be allowed to live a thousand years. And to live (a thousand years) would by no means remove him from the doom. And Allah is Seer of what they do.
95.   Wa lany-yatamannaw-hu ‘abadam- bimaa qaddamat ‘aydiihim. Wallaahu ‘Aliimum-biz-zaalimiin.                     

96.   Wa la- tajidannahum  ‘ah-rasan-naasi ‘alaa hayaah. Wa minallaziina ‘ashrakuu yawad-du ‘ahaduhum law yu-‘ammaru ‘alfa sanah. Wa maa huwa bi-muzahzihihii minal-‘azaabi ‘any-yu-‘ammar. Wallaahu Basiirum- bimaa ya’-maluun.

Lesson

In this verse Allah Almighty has explained completely about reality of the children of Israel. It means that although they claim to be the only Heirs of the Paradise. Therefore they are being commanded to show the long for death. But they will never be prepared to accept it. They don’t want to intend to leave luxuries of this world entirely and to face the world hereafter. There is only one reason for it that they haven’t faith on purity of their claim. They just tell a lie. They know very well about the evildoings and immoralities which they have done in this world, they shall have to face the punishment for their sins. So they wish that they might get the life as long as possible, so that they may enjoy luxuries of this world for maximum period and be saved from agony of dooms day.

Every body out of them wants to remain in this world for thousands of the years, so that he may get more worldly benefits and be saved from agony. But God Almighty gives caution to them that wishing they get more life, they can’t save themselves from agony of Allah Almighty because He knows their each deed.



LESSON # 104 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)
Enmity Of The Gabriel
Verse – 97 & 98 of 286, Section – 12 (Part  - 1)

97.  Say (O Muhammad, to mankind): Who is an enemy to Gabriel! For he it is who hath revealed (this Scripture) to thy heart by Allah’s leave, confirming that which was (revealed) before it, and a guidance and glad-tidings to believers.

98.  Who is an enemy to Allah, and His angels and His messengers, and Gabriel and Michael! Then, lo! Allah (Himself) is an enemy to the disbelievers.
97.  Qul man- kaana ‘aduwwal-li-Jibriila fa-‘innahum nazza-lahuu ‘alaa qalbika bi-‘iznillaahi musaddiqal-limaa bayna ya-dayhi wa hudanw-wa  bushraa   lil-Mu’-miniin.



98.  Man-kaana ‘aduwwal-lil-laahi  wa malaaa-‘ikatihii wa rusulihii wa Jibriila wa Mii-Kaala  fa-‘innallaaha  ‘aduwwul-lil-Kaafiriin.

Lesson

Jibriila – (Gabriel) it is the name of a great Angel. He has a very sensitive responsibility as He conveys Revelation of the God Almighty to the Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon Them). He is counted as out of the closely to God Almighty and arch angel.

In this verse God Almighty has opened some other secrets of the children of Israel’s false and meaningless argument. The Jews used to say that which torture used to descend over their forefathers from time to time, the news of that torture were revealed by Gabriel (peace be upon Him). He was their national enemy. For whom out of Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon Them) He will bring the revelation, they will not accept Him (peace be upon Him). This Angel also brings revelation towards the Prophet of Islam, the last Messenger Muhammad (glory, grace, peace and blessings be upon Him), besides this He discloses their secrets, conspiracies and plans over the Last Prophet Muhammad (glory, grace, peace and blessings be upon Him) so they would not agree to accept Him (peace be upon Him).

Allah Almighty has replied in this verse that position of the Gabriel (peace be upon Him) is only as an Angel who conveys the messages of the God Almighty to the Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon Them). In fact each type of command, order, agony, torture or Speech is revealed from the Allah Almighty. The enmity of the Gabriel, some other Angels and Messengers (peace be upon Them) is totally meaningless and the Infidels will be punished severely due to their enmity with God Almighty

Allah Almighty has narrated three virtues of Holy Qur’an in this verse:

•        It verifies the principles of previous Heavenly Books.
•        This Holy Book shows the straight path.
•        It causes to hear happy news for the Believers about good rewards and success.


LESSON # 105 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)
Breaking Of The Promise By The Jews
Verse – 99 & 100 of 286, Section – 12 (Part  - 1)

99.  And verily We have revealed unto thee clear verses, and only miscreants will disbelieve in them.

100.  Is it ever so that when they make a covenant a party of them set it aside? The truth is, most of them believe not.
99.  Wa laqad ‘anzalnaaa ‘ilay-ka ‘Aayaatim- bayyinaat. Wa maa yakfuru bihaaa ‘illal-faasi-quun.

100.  ‘Awa- kullamaa  ‘aahaduu ‘ahdan-nabazahuu fariiqum-minhum.  Bal ‘aksaruhum laa yu’-minuun.

Lesson
         
‘Aayaatim- bayyinaat – (clear verses), ‘Aayaat means verses, literally it means ‘tokens’, ‘signs’. The word ‘Aayaat is used for many purposes i.e. punctuations in the Holy Qur’an, Orders, Instructions and Commands of God Almighty are also called ‘Aayaat, and all those speeches and things which are signs of the Power of God Almighty, will be included in its meanings.

Bayyinaat – its singular is Bayyinah that means clear, bright. The meanings of all this sentence may be the Holy Qur’an too as well as Miracles and Orders of the God Almighty.

The children of Israel were materialists so the God Almighty bestowed their Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon Them) with miracles outward and relating to matter. Near to them proof of the truth of any Prophet (peace be upon Him) was that He (peace be upon Him) would have the Miracles. When the Last Prophet and Messenger Muhammad (glory, grace, peace and blessings be upon Him) were sent, the children of Israel said surprisingly, “of what sort is this Prophet? He has no sign or token of prophet-hood. Replying them Allah Almighty commanded, “You demand one sign of Prophet-hood, We have bestowed many signs and tokens to Our Messenger (glory, grace, peace and blessings be upon Him) and those signs & tokens are neither hidden nor dim, moreover these are clear and bright verses which may be seen by everyone. After looking them any person who has true nature can not deny from them. Only those persons will disbelieve who has become habitual of breaking the Laws of God Almighty and violating His Orders.

History of the children of Israel has been filled with the happenings of treachery, breaking the covenants, disobeying and violence. Whenever any Messenger of Allah Almighty brought towards them the Clear Verses, they falsified Him. Moreover after making the covenant to obey the God Almighty and His Prophet (glory, grace, peace and blessings be upon Him) they did not remain firm on it. This habit of refusal and disobeying of the Jews stopped them to accept the prophet-hood of the Last Messenger Muhammad (glory, grace, peace and blessings be upon Him).         
   


LESSON # 106 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)
Opposing The Scripture Of Allah
Verse –101 of 286, Section – 12 (Part  - 1)

And when there cometh unto them a Messenger from Allah, confirming that which they possess, a party of those who have received the scripture fling the scripture of Allah behind their backs as if they knew not.
Wa lammaa jaaa-‘a hum Rasuulum-min ‘indillaahi mu-saddiqul-limaa ma-‘ahum nabaza fariiqum-minal-laziina   ‘uutul-kitaaba,  kitaaballaahi waraaa-‘a  zuhuurihim  ka-‘an-nahum laa ya’-lamuun.

Lesson

Rasuulun – (Messenger) the person carrying message. This word is used for all the Prophets (peace be upon Them). It is revealed from the way of narration of this verse that it signifies towards the last Messenger of Allah Almighty (glory, grace, peace and blessings be upon Him). Religious commentators, research scholars and philosophers have also taken these meanings of the verse.

Ma-‘ahum – (they possess) it aims the Holy Book Torah, of which guidance the children of Israel did not admit. These persons did not believe also the last Messenger and Prophet Muhammad (glory, grace, peace and blessings be upon Him), still vast signs and foretelling had been mentioned in that Holy Book (Torah). The Jewish Scholars tried their best to hide these foretelling and the common Jewish people opposed limitless the Islam and the Muslims still their salvation was connected with the faith of Islam.

Waraaa-‘a  zuhuurihim – (behind their backs) it is a proverb that means, “they used carelessness and opposed it practically”.

In this verse it is being told to the children of Israel that the Last Messenger (glory, grace, peace and blessings be upon Him) has not come to efface their religion but He (glory, grace, peace and blessings be upon Him) has come to refresh and provide it a new life. So not obeying Him (glory, grace, peace and blessings be upon Him) is like ruining entirely their religion by themselves digging its roots.

Besides all these speeches the children of Israel began opposing Islam publicly and which glad tidings about inspiration of the Last Messenger Muhammad (glory, grace, peace and blessings be upon Him) had been mentioned in Torah, and which signs and tokens were narrated, to hide them they changed the Torah and apparently became strangers. As though they didn’t know that support and authentication regarding the last Prophet (glory, grace, peace and blessings be upon Him) is present in it.
