LESSON # 342 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
Followers Of Christ Who Have False Belief
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter – 3)
Verse – 23 & 24 of 200, Section –3 (Part – 3)
|Hast thou not seen how those who were given a portion of the Scripture are called to the Scripture of Allah (in their disputes) that it may judge between them; then a faction of them turn away, being opposed (to it).
23. ‘Alam tara ‘ilal-laziina ‘uutuu nasiibam-minal-Kitaabi yud-‘awna ‘ilaa Kitaabillaahi li-yah-kuma baynahum summa yata-wallaa fariiqum-minhum wa hum-mu’-rizuun.
24. Zaalika bi-‘annahum qaaluu lan- tamassa-nan-Naaru ‘illaaa ‘ayyaamam-ma’-duudaat, wa garrahum fii diinihim-maa kaanuu yaftaruun.
It has been described in these verses that when they are invited to come towards Holy Qur’an, which has been revealed according to the mentioned good news in their Holy Scriptures and It has correct decision power of their contradictions and differences. Then some of their religious scholars turn away, whereas invitation towards Holy Qur’an is actually the invitation towards Torah and Gospel.
These people turn their faces from the guidelines and orders of their own Scripture and make changes in to them in accord with their wishes. Neither they care for the good news revealed in the Scriptures and nor believe in the predictions mentioned there.
Then it was told that the reason of their too much strong desire towards evils and crimes is that they are entirely fearless from the punishment to be awarded by Allah Almighty. They have invented at their own different types of precepts and doctrines. Out of them, one thought is that at first, they would never be punished, and if they were punished, that would be only for a few days. Christians had made another false doctrine crossing all others. That is to say: Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) has already been punished against all sinners and evil-doers. (Allah Almighty preserve us from this type of thinking, because He (Allah Almighty) is not unjust that the criminal escapes and the innocent is punished).
