Manifestation Of Jesus Christ
(God’s Blessings On Him)
Verse –87a of 286, Section – 11
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.
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.
