LESSON # 137 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)
Belief On All The Prophets
(peace be upon Them)
Verse –136 of 286, Section – 16 (Part 1)
Say (O Muslims): We believe in Allah and that which is revealed unto us and that which was revealed unto Abraham, and Ishmael, and Isaac, and Jacob, and the tribes, and that which Moses and Jesus received, and that which the Prophets received from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and unto Him we have surrendered.
Quuluuu ‘aamannaa bil-laahi wa maaa ‘unzila ‘ilaynaa wa maa ‘unzila ‘ilaaa ‘Ibraa-hiima wa ‘Ismaa-iila wa ‘Is-haaqa wa Ya’-quuba wal-‘as-baati wa maaa ‘uutiya Muusaa wa ‘Iisaa wa maaa ‘uutiyan-nabiyyuuna mir-Rabbihim. Laa nufarriqu bayna ‘ahadim-minhum, wa nahnu lahuu Muslimuun.
Al-‘as-baati – (the children) this word is plural of the word sabt, which means children, that is to say, children of the children (grandsons from forefathers and foremothers). Here it aims towards the race of Prophet Jacob (peace be upon Him).
The Muslims are being taught in this verse, “Say: O people of the Scripture! You have fallen in the curses of anger, stubbornness, violence, jealousy, malice and bigotry. You follow some Prophets and falsify some of Them (peace be upon Them). You reserve the prophet-hood with the race and nation. You take greatness due to race for source of freedom, and fix as wrong to all the religions except your own.
We, the Muslims believe that all the Prophets (peace be upon Them) are true, do not disagree to anyone of Them. All the Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon Them), who have come in this world, desiring, they belong to any country, any nation and any era, they all brought the only one Message of Truth. We verify all of Them (peace be upon Them) equally.
