Lesson 

bil-Haqqi – (with truth), wisdom, knowledge, and justice is also entering in the meaning of the word Haqq along with truth. That is to say; the Speech of Allah (Holy Qur’an) is full of wisdom as well as on truth.

 

Musaddiqun– (a verifier, an affirmer, one who believes other), Holy Qur’an is the Scripture, confirming that, which was revealed before it. It acknowledges each Heavenly Book as on truth, and believes in the Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon them) and their teachings from Allah Almighty.

 

‘al-Furqaan– (a standard of judging, the Criterion), it means that specified discretion which is born between right and wrong. According to some religious scholars, it aims the miracles, arguments and proofs which were conferred to each Messenger/Prophet (peace be upon him). Furqaanis also the name of Holy Qur’an. Its literal meanings are ‘the Separator’, that is to say; the Separator of right and wrong, true and false.

 

Allah Almighty has commanded in this verse that “O Messenger! Holy Qur’an revealed to you with truth and justice in accord with real wisdom and it has another peculiarity that it confirms the Scripture, which was revealed before it like Torah and Gospel etc. These Books used to guide the ancient people. Like this, as though Allah Almighty told that the faith regarding Godhead of Jesus and being son of God did not exist in any heavenly book, because according to the principles of religion all Heavenly Books are unanimous.

 

Allah Almighty revealed such proper things in every reign, which differentiate and distinct between right and wrong, lawful and unlawful, true and false. At last, He also commanded that the people who will deny believing in the verses of Allah Almighty intentionally, He would punish them (certainly). He is Overcoming, Requite and Perfect Capable to take revenge.

Lesson 

       

Purpose to reveal this verse is that a group of Christians from Najraan came to Messenger of Allah (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah be upon him). These people were convinced about godhead of Jesus (peace be upon him). They used to say him “son of God” (let us flee to God) and believed in trinity. When the conversation began, Messenger of Allah (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) proved that Jesus (peace be upon him) was a servant of Allah Almighty. Allah Almighty is pure from it that He is nourished in the womb of any woman, and after birth He eats and drinks like common humankind, (I seek shelter of Allah Almighty from Satan the outcast). Messenger of Islam (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) told that belief of Christians is baseless in which they say, “Jesus (peace be upon him) was hanged and died restlessly (let us flee to God).

 

Messenger of Allah (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) said, “you do not know that ‘Allaahu  laaa  ‘ilaaha  ‘illaa  Huwal-Hayyul-Qayyuum (Allah! There is no God save Him, the Alive, the Eternal), He can never die, He bestowed body to the entire creature. Contrary to Him Jesus (peace be upon him) will certainly die, and it is clear that how can he keep up other creature who cannot keep his own existence?

 

Listening it, they all became silent. Then Messenger of Allah (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) said, “if you have still any doubt then come, let us come out bringing our children (yours’ and ours’) and supplicate from God Almighty, “curse upon the liar”. They requested that they would reply after consultation with each other. Accordingly, they consulted among themselves that, “this person is Messenger of God (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), if we shall oppose him in this manner, wrath of God will break in upon us. So it is better for us to go back to our homes”. Therefore, they went back to Najraan.  

 

‘Alif-Laaam-Miiim – (short verses), it was explained in LESSON # 15 of HOLY QUR’AAN (Surah AL-BAQARAH – 2 ABSOLUTE LETTERS Verse – 1 of 286, section -1). To say something certainly about its meaning is difficult. The saints have described different meanings. Well-known saying is that ‘Alif-Laaam-Miiim is substance of ‘Ana-Allaahu ‘a’-lamu (I, Allah am the best Knower). In short, Allah Almighty has rejected the beliefs of Christians in above-mentioned verse. Their following three Articles of Faith were famous: (let us flee to God)  

 

  1. Trinity (with the union of God, Jesus and Holy Spirit it becomes God).
  2. Jesus (peace be upon him) is God. He has come in the shape of humankind.
  3. Jesus (peace be upon him) is son of God.

 

The words ‘Allaahu  laaa  ‘ilaaha  ‘illaa  Huvitiated the first article of faith. Then the words Hayyul-Qayyuumproved that the second and third articles of faith are also wrong, because Jesus (peace be upon him) was born from the womb of a woman. As though, he (peace be upon him) was indigent of his mother for his birth. Moreover, while transitory is also for him (peace be upon him), then he (peace be upon him) cannot be Qayyuum(the Eternal), so how can he (peace be upon him) be Allah (God) Almighty?
