Lessons 350 to 361

Birth Of Mary (peace Be Upon Her)
The Virgin Mary’s Birth
Bringing Forth Event Of Mary
Mary’s Birth
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter - 3)
Verse – 35 & 36 of  200, Section –4    (Part – 3)
35.  (Remember) when the wife of ‘Imran  said: My Lord! I have vowed unto Thee that which is in my belly as a consecrated (offspring). Accept it from me. Lo! Thou, only Thou, art the Hearer, the Knower!   

36.  And when she brought forth she said: My Lord! Lo! I have brought it forth a female. And Allah knew best of what she brought forth- and the male is not as the female; and lo! I have named her Mary, and lo! I crave Thy protection for her and for her offspring from Satan the outcast.               
35.  ‘Iz  qaala-timra-‘atu  ‘Imraana    
Rabbi  ‘innii 
nazartu  laka  maa  fii  batnii 
muharraran- fa-taqabbal  minnii. 
‘Innaka  ‘An-tas-Samii-‘ul-  ‘Aliim.       

36.  Falammaa  waza-‘at-haa  qaalat  Rabbi  ‘inni  waza’-tu-haa  ‘unsaa.  Wallaahu  ‘A’-lamu

kal ‘unsaa.  Wa  ‘innii  sammaytuhaa 
Maryama  Wa  ‘inniii  ‘u-‘iizuhaabika  wa  zurriyya-tahaa  minash-Shay-taanir-Rajiim.         

‘imra-‘atu  ‘Imraana – (spouse of Imran), her name was Hunnah bint e Faaquuz. She had made a vow unto Allah Almighty according to the custom of her time that, which offspring was in her belly, she would set it free in the name of Allah Almighty. It meant, “That child will use to worship Allah Almighty and serve the Church always being free from all worldly works”. She also prayed, “O Lord! Accept it with Your kindness from me. You are the Hearer of my request, and You know my aim as You are the Knower”.

As though, that woman prayed hinting for the birth of a son to her (offspring). But her hope did not come up and absurd a daughter was born from her. Therefore, she said with grief, “My Lord! Lo! I have brought it forth a female”. Allah Almighty commanded her that her daughter was very auspicious, she did not know that her daughter would bring forth a blessed and honorable son (Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon him).

Wife of Imran requested God Almighty, “I have named her Mary, and I crave Your protection for her and for her offspring from Satan the outcast”. Allah Almighty accepted her request. We have learnt from this narration that, “Although each kind of badness had been grown in the children of Israel in those days, but even then some persons out of them were present who used to love Allah Almighty and they used to endow their children for religious duty.  

Sustenance Of Mary
Who Nourished Mary?
Arrangement For Growth Of Mary
Zachariah Was Appointed To Bring Up Mary
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter - 3)
Verse – 37 of  200, Section –4    (Part – 3)
And her Lord accepted her with full acceptance and vouchsafed to her a goodly growth; and made Zachariah her guardian. Whenever Zachariah went into the sanctuary where she was, he found that she had food. He said: O Mary! Whence cometh unto thee this (food)? She answered: It is from Allah. Surely Allah giveth without stint to whom He will.

Zakariyyaa – (Zachariah (peace be upon him) was a Prophet of Allah Almighty. He was husband of the mother’s sister of Mary (maternal uncle). After the expiry of Imran, (the father of Mary) Zachariah (peace be upon them) became chief of the nation.

‘al-  Mihraaba – (the sanctuary), an asylum, a separate place for somebody’s living alone for worship. Mihraab of Masjid (Mosque) is also called by this name because Imam (the spiritual leader) stands alone in front of all the people separately to guide them for prayer.

Although female was not accepted to attend the temple (haikal), however Allah Almighty accepted the prayer of Mary’s mother and put this matter in the hearts of attendants of the Temple of Jerusalem (Bait ul Muqaddas) that they should accept this girl contrary to common rules. When dissention arose between the Haikal (the Temple) about Mary’s sustenance, then a cast was drawn and the cast came out in the name of Zachariah (peace be upon him).

Allah Almighty grew Mary (peace be upon her) unusually respecting spiritual, literary, corporeal and moral. Zachariah (peace be upon him) became her guardian. He tried his best in her training. When Mary rose a little, a separate sanctuary was specified near the place of worship for her living. Mary (peace be upon her) used to remain there busy in worship.

Zachariah (peace be upon him) used to come there many times daily. Whenever he went there, he saw in the sanctuary different kinds of food and fruit, and perplexed that by whom these things are being delivered to Mary. Therefore, he asked Mary, “O Mary! Who gives this food to you? She answered: It is from Allah Almighty. Allah gives without stint to whom He wills through the unknown sources about which nobody can think.

Supplication Of Zachariah
Zachariah’s Prayer
Prayer For A Son By Zachariah
Allah’s Glad Tidings Of A Son For Zachariah
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter - 3)
Verse – 38 & 39 of  200, Section –4    (Part – 3)
38.  Then Zachariah prayed unto his Lord and said: My Lord! Bestow upon me of Thy Bounty goodly offspring. Lo! Thou art the Hearer of Prayer.    

39.  And the angels called to him as he stood praying in the sanctuary: Allah giveth thee glad tidings of (a son whose name is) John, (who cometh) to confirm a Word from Allah, lordly, chaste, a Prophet of the righteous.                   
38.  Hunaalika  da-‘aa  Zakariyyaa  Rabbah. 
Qaala  Rabbi  hablii  mil-ladunka  zurriyyatan-  tayyibah.  ‘Innaka  Samii-‘ud-duaaa’.     

39.  Fanaadat-hul-malaaa-‘ikatu  wa  huwa  qaaa-‘imuny-yusallii  fil-  Mihraabi-  ‘annallaaha  yubash-shiruka  bi-Yahyaa  musaddiqam-bi-Kalimatim-minallaahi  wa  sayyidanw-wa  hasuuranw-wa  Nabiyyam-minas-saalihiin.           

Prophet Zachariah (peace be upon him) used to grieve in heart looking at the condition of His (peace be upon Him) nation and think, “Nobody seems to be the Heir of that Knowledge of Prophet-hood which is a specified thing of the family of Prophet Abraham (peace be upon Him) in the entire nation at this time. Will these people be deprived from it after Me (peace be upon Him)?” He had no child in his house. His wife was barren and he had become old. He (peace be upon Him) used to pray always, “O Allah! Appoint someone heir of my knowledge”.

Prayer of Prophet Zachariah (peace be upon him) was accepted. One day he (peace be upon him) was standing in His (peace be upon Him) sanctuary for worship of Allah Almighty. An angel (peace be upon him) called him and told, “Allah Almighty gives you glad tidings of (a son whose name is) John.” The Angel (peace be upon him) of Allah Almighty also described following characteristics of that blessed child:

       He (peace be upon him) will confirm and verify the Words from (orders of) Allah Almighty.

       He (peace be upon him) will be lordly and chaste.

       And he (peace be upon him) will be a Prophet of the righteous.

Birth Of John (peace be upon him)
A Token Of Lord In The Birth Of John
John’s Birth (Peace be Upon Him)
Yahyaa (John) Son Of Zachariah - Birth
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter - 3)
Verse – 40 & 41 of  200, Section –4    (Part – 3)
40.  He said: My Lord! How can I have a son when old age hath overtaken me already and my wife is barren? (The angel) answered: So (it will be), Allah doeth what He will.     

41.  He said: My Lord! Appoint a token for me. (The angel) said: The token unto thee (shall be) that thou shalt not speak unto mankind three days except by signs. And remember thy Lord much, and praise (Him) in the early hours of night and morning.                    
40.  Qaala  Rabbi  ‘annaa 
ya-kuunu  lii  gulaamunw-wa 
qad  balaga-niyal-kibaru  wamra-‘atii  ‘aaqir.  Qaala  kazaali-kallaahu

When glad tidings was given to Prophet Zachariah (peace be upon him) that a righteous son would be born in his house, he (peace be upon him) was much surprised and said, “External motives about the birth of a son do not exist, old age has overtaken me and my wife is barren. How can the son be born”?

Allah Almighty commanded that He is not needy of the causes. He does what He wills.

When Prophet Zachariah (peace be upon him) relied on it, he requested, “O my Lord! Tell me any token with which I may know that my wife will bring forth a son”. Allah Almighty described, “Token of this glad tiding is that you will not speak with the people for three days except by signs. So whenever you feel this condition and your tongue remembers sincerely your Lord much, then understand it that offspring is near to be born”. Which token was told by Allah Almighty, that had biggest excellence i.e. that was a token as a token and worship of Allah Almighty as worship. That is to say: on one side that became cause of information (about glad  tiding of the son) to Prophet Zachariah (peace be upon him), and on the other side that became source of Allah’s prayer and gratitude. Along with it Allah Almighty urged Zachariah (peace be upon him) to praise (Him) in the early hours of night and morning in these days, and remain engaged in mentioning His Purity.       

Chosen Woman By God - Marry
Mary Was Made Pure By Allah
Grade Of Mary
Preference Of Mary Over Other Women
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter - 3)
Verse – 42 & 43 of  200, Section –5    (Part – 3)
42.  And when the angels said: O Mary! Lo! Allah hath chosen thee and made thee pure, and hath preferred thee above (all) the women of creation.      

43.  O Mary! Be obedient to thy Lord, prostrate thyself and bow with those who bow (in worship).                  
42.  Wa  ‘iz  qaalatil-malaaa-‘ikatu  yaa-Maryamu  ‘innal-laahas-tafaaki  wa  tah-haraki  wastafaaki  ‘alaa  nisaaa-‘il-‘aalamiin.       

43.  Yaa-Maryamuqnutii  li-Rabbiki  wasjudii  warka-‘ii  ma-‘ar-raaki-‘iin.         

‘as-tafaaki – (you are chosen), besides choosing it also means liking and selecting. The word Mustafaa has also come out of it, which means chosen and selected.

Holy Qur’an does not verify only past Scriptures and Prophets (peace be upon them), but it confuted strongly also the misunderstandings which were born about them (Heavenly Books and Prophets) and the disbelievers had accused and charged falsely against them.

The children of Israel had published stupid sayings about the birth of Jesus Christ, his mother (peace be upon them), other persons of their family and likewise in connection with their teachings. Holy Qur’an refuted all of them. Therefore, it commands that:

Allah Almighty said to Mary through His Angels (peace be upon them) that He has chosen you to bestow His blessings and favors. He has accepted you (peace be upon her) in His dedication and made you pure, and has preferred you above all the women of creation. For example that, “You will bring forth the Prophet (peace be upon them) likewise Jesus Christ without to be touched by any male person. This beauty has not been given to any other woman of the entire world.

Then Allah Almighty commanded Mary (peace be upon her), “While you have been given such higher grade and honor, you should be obedient to your Lord, prostrate yourself and bow with those who bow in worship”.

These verses manifest that Allah Almighty specifies the person for His favor and bounty to whom He wills. He reveals His blessings upon him/her and bestows preference over others. The humankind should worship their Lord, bow themselves before Him and do worship with those who bow.

It is the best method to be grateful to Allah Almighty. He likes very much the contribution and submission of His servants. The person who thanks One God (Allah Almighty) on His blessings, He reveals more blessings upon him/her.   

Marry’s (peace be upon her) Security
Responsibility Of Mary’s Sustenance
Quarrel For Mary’s Sustenance
Who Would  Nourish Mary
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter - 3)
Verse – 44 of  200, Section –5    (Part – 3)
This is of the tidings of things hidden. We reveal it unto thee (Muhammad), “Thou wast not present with them when they threw their pens (to know) which of them should be the guardian of Mary, nor wast thou present with them when they quarreled (thereupon).                
Zaalika  min  ‘ambaaa-‘il  gaybi  nuuhiihi  ‘ilayk.  Wa 
maa  kunta  ladayhim  ‘iz 
yulquuna  ‘aqlaamahum-  ‘ayyuhum  yakfulu  Maryam. 
Wa  maa  kunta  ladayhim  ‘iz 

In this verse, Allah Almighty has described in corroboration of the claim of Prophet-hood in respect of the Messenger of Islam, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). We have taught him, these entire past incidents which Last Prophet (grace, glory, blessing and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) has been causing to hear the people. The Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) has absolutely not invented them himself. Its proof is that, the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) is apparently altogether illiterate. He (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) never attended company of any person who believed in one of the previous inspired Scriptures of Allah Almighty, so that he might know from them these occurrences. Moreover, suppose! if he would have remained with them, then you may know that those people had also not the correct knowledge. They had fallen in whims worship. They had changed the correct incidents. So it is clear that these entire facts, for instance; to vow the mother of Mary, birth of Mary, acceptance of petition by Allah Almighty, fostering and security of Mary, supplication of Prophet Zachariah (peace be upon him), birth of John, glad tidings regarding Jesus Christ (peace be upon them) etc. How these entire facts might be known by the Messenger, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) without the source of the revelation from Allah Almighty”?

After adducing the above-mentioned proof in favor of Messenger-hood of  Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him), Allah Almighty has begun again the description of Mary (peace be upon her).

 Mary (peace be upon her) was accepted in vow. Then she was sent for the duty of the Temple of Jerusalem. Now there was a problem regarding her goodly growth. It was settled that lot should be drawn for her look after. The form of lot was proposed that all the attendants of the Temple of Jerusalem should leave their own pens (with which they used to write Torah) in to the flowing water. Whose pen turns towards the direction of coming water, he would be guardian of Mary. Therefore, it was done so. The pen of Prophet Zachariah (peace be upon him) did not  flow towards the direction of flowing water but it changed its direction and returned. So responsibility regarding growth of Mary was given to him (peace be upon them). Zachariah (peace be upon him) was really a well learned and one versed in religious matters, and he (peace be upon  him) was also maternal uncle of Mary (peace be upon them). Consequently, the Right reached the Rightful with the Will of God Almighty.  

God Almighty recognized again that Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) was not present at that time when the attendants of the Temple of Jerusalem were leaving their pens into the water for taking decision regarding patronage of Mary (peace be upon her). But in spite of it, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) accrued this knowledge through the Revelation. Even after this argument of Allah Almighty, those people who deny the Messenger-hood of Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him), they are astray, they have lost the Straight Path. Severe threat is for them. It is clear evident from this verse that Holy Qur’an is not the collection of stories and tales. It is the Book for Guidance and which incidents and facts are written in It, those are for manifesting of its purpose.

Glad Tiding Of Jesus (peace be upon him)
Revelation About The Child Who Spoke In Cradle
Divine Inspiration About Jesus
Good News For Mary About Jesus
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter - 3)
Verse – 45 & 46 of  200, Section –5    (Part – 3) - The Meanings Of Life (Video) 

45.  (And remembers) when the angels said: O Mary! Lo! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him, whose name is the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, illustrious in the world and the Hereafter, and one of those brought near (unto Allah)-     

46.  He will speak unto mankind in his cradle and in his manhood, and he is of the righteous.                  
45.  ‘Iz  qaalatil-mallaaa-‘ikatu  yaa-Maryamu  ‘innallaaha  yu-bashshiruki  bi-Kalimatim-min-hus-muhul-Masiihu  ‘Iisabnu-Maryama  wajiihan-  fid-dunyaa  wal-‘Aakhirati  wa  minal- Mu-qarrabiin.       

46.  Wa  yukalli-munnaasa  fil-mahdi  wa  kahlanw-wa  minas-saalihiin.        

Kalimatin – (a Word), according to Holy Qur’an and Sayings of the Last Messenger, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) has been named as KalimatUllah. As the title of Angel Gabriel (peace be upon him) is Ruuhul Qudus, just like this KalimatUllah is the title of Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him). Even in this manner, the Words of Allah Almighty are uncountable, but Jesus (peace be upon him) is specifically called KalimatUllah for the reason that his birth was without father, only by the order of Allah Almighty, contrary to the custom. The affair, which will be contrary to reason, custom and rules that will be attributed directly to Allah Almighty.     

‘al-Masiihu – (the Messiah), this Hebrew word is a form of the word ‘Maasheikh or ‘Mashiihaa, which means, “auspicious, sacred, blessed, happy and august” etc. Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) is usually remembered with this name.

‘Iisabnu-Maryama – (it is the second name of Messiah), ‘Iisaa has come out from the Hebrew word ‘Iishuu’, which means Saiyid (A lord, prince, chief, a descendant). Here this matter is meditation-able that Holy Qur’an has kept particularly the word “’ibni-Maryam” as a part of the name of ‘Iisaa (Jesus) (peace be upon him). Therefore, his (peace be upon him) pedigree will remain always towards his mother, Mary (peace be upon her). Likewise, to disclose the greatness of Mary (peace be upon her) her name has been made part of the name of Jesus (peace be upon him) for ever.  

When glad tidings of Jesus (peace be upon him) was given to Mary (peace be upon her), then it was possible that she would have confused that, “How the people will accept him (Jesus) without father? In addition, they will calumniate of various sorts. How might I be able to announce for my chastity? Allah Almighty explained, “O Mary! Be satisfied, I shall bestow him great honor not only in the Hereafter but also in this world and prove their entire charges as false. Your son will be most polite and righteous of higher degree. He will be still an infant that talk to the people (in the cradle). You will have nothing to speak about your chastity and acquittal; you would have to say only, “I have fasted today, can not speak, the child will speak himself unto you, the mankind in his cradle and in his manhood”.   

Son Without Father
Birth Of Jesus Without Father
Incomparable Birth Of Offspring
Mary Brought Forth Son Without Husband
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter - 3)
Verse – 47 of  200, Section –5    (Part – 3) - The Meanings Of Life (Video) 

She said: My Lord! How can I have a child when no mortal hath touched me? He said: So (it will be), Allah create what He will. If He decreeth a thing, He saith unto it only: Be! And it is.                  
Qaalat  Rabbi  ‘annaa  yukuunu 
lii  waladunw-wa  lam  yamsasnii 
basher.  Qaala  kazaali-killaahu  yakh-luqu  maa  yashaaa’.  ‘Izaa 
qazaaa  ‘amran-  fa-‘innamaa  ya-quulu  lahuu  ‘KUN’-  fa-yakuun.        

When God Almighty caused to hear Mary (peace be upon her) the glad tidings about the birth of Jesus (peace be upon him) care of the Angel (peace be upon him), she astonished and thought, “Wonderful; how it can be? No man has touched me so far. How the birth of a child would be possible?” Allah Almighty commanded, “There is no surprise in it. Allah creates what He will. He is not indigent of outward motives. When He determines to do something, He says unto it only; Be! And it is”.

This verse manifests extent of Divine Power of Allah Almighty. He is The  Cause of causes, creates the cause for each work Himself. He created the earth, the skies and entire things of the universe. He created one above the one item. How can He be necessitous of causes and sources?

Allah Almighty has framed laws to run the system of universe as; the water quenches the thirst, the hand burns whenever someone puts it in to the fire, the human being is lost when his heart beat stops, children will be born with the copulation of male and female. These entire things appear in accord with ordinary manner. As per idiomatic meaning, these are called ‘Laws of Producing’. That is to say; if any cause happens, then any result of it comes out.

In this regard, observation of the humankind has become so matured that he discovers cause of each result and produces cause to accomplish each result. He becomes thunderstruck upon any happening, if he does not find its natural or external cause.

In this verse, Allah Almighty has adjudged this observation of the human being as false. It has been searched out that existence of the causes has been set up only for the satisfaction of mankind. Every thing is possible in front of extent of the Divine Power. Only making a signal by Allah Almighty is sufficient for completion of any task. Therefore, He commanded, “when I devise any thing, I make a signal of ‘KUN’ (Be) only unto it. As resultant, that task has been completed (And it is). I do not need apparent causes”.

It was described to Mary (peace be upon her) that Allah Almighty will bestow following excellence to Jesus (peace be upon him):

       He (God Almighty) will teach him (peace be upon him) the Scripture and Wisdom particularly the knowledge of the Torah and the Gospel.

       He (peace be upon him) will instruct the people deepest sayings of the wisdom.

       God Almighty will make him a messenger (peace be upon him) for the Guidance of the Children of Israel.

       Allah Almighty will bestow him (peace be upon him) some miracles. He will fashion out of clay the likeness of a bird, breathe into it and that will be a bird, by Allah’s leave.

       He (peace be upon him) will say the people, “I heal him who was born blind, and the leper by the leave of God Almighty”.

        He (peace be upon him) will also inform the people, “I raise the dead, by Allah’s leave”.

       Then he will tell them, “I announce unto you what ye eat and what ye store up in your houses”.

Physicians and philosophers were very powerful during the time of Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon him). Therefore, he (peace be upon him) was given such miracles which might open upon the people that he (peace be upon him) has superiority over the entire persons.

Allah Is My Lord and Your Lord – Jesus
Teachings Of Jesus Christ
The Messiah’s Preachment
What Did Christ Teach?
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter - 3)
Verse – 50 & 51 of  200, Section –5    (Part – 3)

50.  And (I have come) confirming that which was before me of the Torah, and to make lawful some of that which was forbidden unto you. And I have come unto you with a sign from your Lord. So keep your duty to Allah and obey me.       

51.  Lo! Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. That is a straight path.                  
50.  Wa  Musaddiqal—limaa  bayna  yadayya

51.  ‘Innallaaha  Rabbii  wa 
Rabbukum  fa’-buduuh.  Haazaa  Siraatum-mustaqiim.          

Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) commanded his nation, the children of Israel, “I have come confirming the Torah which was revealed upon Prophet Moses (peace be upon him) before me. That was revealed from Allah Almighty and that is a true Scripture. Keeping its ordinary principles and orders firm, I shall make some changes in the instructions by the order of Allah Almighty, which will be suitable according to the present times. As there was some severity in a few instructions, that will be lifted now. The things, which were made forbidden as punishment against your wicked deeds, I shall make them lawful for you. You can use them without any hesitation, risk and fear. And I have come towards you with a sign of Prophet-hood and Messenger-hood from your Lord. He has bestowed me many miracles. So keep your duty to Allah Almighty in accord with the guidelines, illustrated by me and follow me”.

It is easily understood here that sobriety, abstinence and piety is hidden in the obedience of the Messenger (peace be upon him). The Prophet (peace be upon him) never says, what is not from Allah Almighty. He never delivers self-invented order. Therefore, how it is possible that without obedience of the Messenger (peace be upon him), the willingness and pleasure of Allah Almighty will be acquired.

Prophet Jesus Christ described that Allah Almighty is my Lord as well as yours’ too. My relation with Him is not as son and father. I am His servant and He is my God (worshipped). Therefore, as I act for His devotion, you should also worship Him. Allah Almighty be praised upon His favors. Obeying His (God’s) orders and following me, (peace be upon him) is the straight path.

This verse is also in continuity of previous verses. Miraculous birth of Prophet Jesus Messiah (peace be upon him), his teachings and miracles  are being described continuously. Aim of these entire discussions is to produce the perception of God fearing, obedience of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) and worship of True God into the human beings. The mankind might learn to bow only in front of Allah Almighty remaining apart from the worship of other human beings. This is the Straight Path.

52.  But when Jesus became conscious of their disbelief, he said: Who will be my helpers in the cause of Allah? The disciples said: We will be Allah’s helpers. We believe in Allah, and bear thou witness that we have surrendered (unto Him).      

53.  Our Lord! We believe in that which Thou hast revealed and we follow him whom Thou hast sent, so enroll us among those who witness (to the truth).     

54.  And they (the disbelievers) schemed, and Allah schemed (against them), and Allah is the best of schemers.

‘al-Hawaa-riyyuuna – (it is plural of Hawaari which means companion, friend, disciple, helper etc), the philosophers of the religion have different view about the ‘al-Hawaa-riyyuun. General opinion about it is that at first two persons out of the children of Israel believed in Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him). They were washer-men. Due to washing the clothes, they were called Hawaarii. Prophet Christ (peace be upon him) described them, “Come and learn from me (peace be upon him), how to purify the hearts”. They said, “We are standing in the service”. Therefore, they were entitled Hawaarii.

When the children of Israel disbelieved in reply to the invitation and preaching of Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) and he (peace be upon him) knew that those people would never accept his religion. But they were thinking to give him pain and trouble, then he announced, “Who will be my helpers in the cause of Allah”? Those ‘al-Hawaa-riyyuun (companions) answered to the prophet Jesus (peace be upon him), “We will be your helpers in the religion of Allah. We believe in Allah, and bear O Jesus our witness that we have surrendered for the cause of Allah. We shall follow the Messenger (peace be upon him) of God Almighty. Our Lord! We believe in that which You have revealed and we follow him whom You have sent, so enroll us among those who witness (to the truth).

Makarun – (scheme, plan, gait), the children of Israel began different kinds of conspiracies and secret schemes against Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him). To the end that they poisoned the ears of then present king, that this person Jesus) was a mutineer of the government and wanted to change the Torah (Scripture) (Allah forbid). The King ordered to arrest Jesus Christ (peace be upon him). At the other hand Allah Almighty schemed Himself, which will be discussed in the next lesson. Without any doubt, Allah Almighty is the best of schemers. None can break it.

Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter - 3)
Verse – 55 & 56 of  200, Section –6    (Part ¾ of – 3)

55.  (And remember) when Allah said: O Jesus! Lo! I am gathering thee and causing thee to ascend unto Me, and am cleansing thee of those who disbelieve and am setting those who follow thee above those who disbelieve until the Day of Resurrection. Then unto Me ye will (all) return, so I shall judge between you as to that wherein ye used to differ.         

56.  As for those who disbelieve I shall chastise them with a heavy chastisement in the world and the Hereafter; and they will have no helpers.     
55.  ‘Iz  qaalallaahu  yaa-‘Iisaaa  ’innii  muta-waffiika  wa  raafi-‘uka  ‘i-layya  wa  mutahhi-ruka  minallaziina  kafaruu 
wa  jaa-‘ilullaziinat-taba-‘uuka  faw-qal-laziina  kafaruuu  ‘ilaa   Yawmil-Qiyaamah.  Summa  ‘ilayya  marji-‘ukum  fa-‘ahkumu  bay-nakum  fii-maa  kuntum  fiihi  takh-talifuun.       

56. Fa-‘ammallaziina  kafaruu  fa-‘u-‘azzibuhum  ‘azaaban-  shadii-dan-fiddunyaa  wal-‘Aakhirati,  wa  maa  lahum-min-naasiriin.   

When The king, whose ears were poisoned by the disbelievers (children of Israel) (as we have learnt in the previous lesson), sent the persons to arrest the Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon him), so that he might be punished and crucified as much admonitory that other people take it warning and give up following him (peace be upon him).

Then Allah Almighty satisfied the Prophet Messiah (peace be upon him) and said, “I shall ruin the plans and schemes of those people. They are thinking to kill you and destroy the purpose of My Guidance to the people from your birth. If they did so, I (Allah Almighty) will get back My this Blessing from them. I shall complete your life in this world and purpose of your (peace be upon him) birth in all respect”.

“It will be done so, that I shall take you up to Me safe and sound. They wish to crucify you (peace be upon him), We shall bring you to heaven. They desire to disgrace you and prevent the people to follow you. But We shall keep you out of their reach and pick you up quite pure and innocent from their indecent environment. Despite it that you are disgraced and the people are hindered from following you due to fear, We shall keep overcoming your followers and believers upon the disbelievers until the Day of Resurrection”.

“Then in the Hereafter, when the entire human beings will return to Me, I shall judge between them as to that wherein they used to differ. As for those who disbelieve I shall chastise them with a heavy chastisement in the Hereafter; and they will have no helpers. And the Believers will be given full remuneration of their good deeds”.

Undoubtedly, Allah Almighty does not like the unjust people.
