LESSON # 297 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
Holy Spirit For Jesus (Peace Be Upon Him)
BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)
Verse –253b of 286, Section –33 (Part – 3)
|And We gave Jesus son of Mary, clear proofs (of Allah’s Sovereignty) and We supported him with the Holy Spirit. And if Allah had so willed it, those who followed after them would not have fought one with another after the clear proofs had come unto them, but they differed, some of them believing and some disbelieving. And if Allah had so willed it, they would not have fought one with another. But Allah doeth what He will.||Wa ‘aataynaa ‘Iisabna- Marya-mal-Bayyinaati wa ayyadnaa-hu bi-Ruuhil- Qudus. Wa law shaaa-‘allaahu maqtata-lallaziina mim- ba’-dihim—mim-ba’-di maa jaaa- ‘at- humul-Bayyi-naa- tuwa laa-kinikh-talafuu fa-minhum-man ‘aamana wa min-hum-man-kafar. Wa law shaaa-‘allaahu maq-tataluu; wa laa-kinnallaaha yaf-‘alu maa yuriid.|
‘Ibna- Marya-ma – (son of Mary), it aims to declare from this word that Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him), to whom the Christians consider God or son of God, actually He (peace be upon him) is son of Mary (compliments on her). Neither He is God and nor son of God. By face He (peace be upon him) is a Mankind like other persons and He (peace be upon him) is also like other human beings in the necessities of mankind.
‘al-Bayyinaatu – (clear proofs), it signifies all those miracles and tokens which were given to Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him), looking whom each wise and justice-lover became pressed to believe in the Messenger-hood of Jesus (peace be upon him).
Ruuhul- Qudus – (the Holy Spirit), in the phrase of Holy Qur-‘an, it means Angel Gabriel (peace be upon him). Although He (peace be upon him) is very nearest Angel to God Almighty, notwithstanding He (peace be upon him) is a creature of God Almighty, and the Christians who consider him one out of three gods, take it wrongly. How an Angel can be a God?
ayyadnaa-hu – (We supported him), although Jesus (peace be upon him) was very Excellent and Proficient, even then He (peace be upon him) was a Mankind and like other human beings he (peace be upon him) was also needy of Allah Almighty for escaping from loss and getting benefits.
At the end it is told that if Allah Almighty wished, those people who had seen the bright tokens of the entire Messengers and after all Last Messenger Muhammad (peace be upon them), would not had a quarrel with each other. These people are Jews, Christians and Idolaters. Some of them embraced Islam and were entitled to get rewards, and some disagreed, remained Infidel and deserved punishment.
