Lesson 

       

‘al-Hawaa-riyyuuna – (it is plural of Hawaari which means companion, friend, disciple, helper etc), the philosophers of the religion have different view about the ‘al-Hawaa-riyyuun. General opinion about it is that at first two persons out of the children of Israel believed in Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him). They were washer-men. Due to washing the clothes, they were called Hawaarii. Prophet Christ (peace be upon him) described them, “Come and learn from me (peace be upon him), how to purify the hearts”. They said, “We are standing in the service”. Therefore, they were entitled Hawaarii.

 

When the children of Israel disbelieved in reply to the invitation and preaching of Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) and he (peace be upon him) knew that those people would never accept his religion. But they were thinking to give him pain and trouble, then he announced, “Who will be my helpers in the cause of Allah”? Those ‘al-Hawaa-riyyuun (companions) answered to the prophet Jesus (peace be upon him), “We will be your helpers in the religion of Allah. We believe in Allah, and bear O Jesus our witness that we have surrendered for the cause of Allah. We shall follow the Messenger (peace be upon him) of God Almighty. Our Lord! We believe in that which You have revealed and we follow him whom You have sent, so enroll us among those who witness (to the truth).

 

Makarun – (scheme, plan, gait), the children of Israel began different kinds of conspiracies and secret schemes against Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him). To the end that they poisoned the ears of then present king, that this person Jesus) was a mutineer of the government and wanted to change the Torah (Scripture) (Allah forbid). The King ordered to arrest Jesus Christ (peace be upon him). At the other hand Allah Almighty schemed Himself, which will be discussed in the next lesson. Without any doubt, Allah Almighty is the best of schemers. None can break it.

Lesson 

       

Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) commanded his nation, the children of Israel, “I have come confirming the Torah which was revealed upon Prophet Moses (peace be upon him) before me. That was revealed from Allah Almighty and that is a true Scripture. Keeping its ordinary principles and orders firm, I shall make some changes in the instructions by the order of Allah Almighty, which will be suitable according to the present times. As there was some severity in a few instructions, that will be lifted now. The things, which were made forbidden as punishment against your wicked deeds, I shall make them lawful for you. You can use them without any hesitation, risk and fear. And I have come towards you with a sign of Prophet-hood and Messenger-hood from your Lord. He has bestowed me many miracles. So keep your duty to Allah Almighty in accord with the guidelines, illustrated by me and follow me”.

 

It is easily understood here that sobriety, abstinence and piety is hidden in the obedience of the Messenger (peace be upon him). The Prophet (peace be upon him) never says, what is not from Allah Almighty. He never delivers self-invented order. Therefore, how it is possible that without obedience of the Messenger (peace be upon him), the willingness and pleasure of Allah Almighty will be acquired.

 

Prophet Jesus Christ described that Allah Almighty is my Lord as well as yours’ too. My relation with Him is not as son and father. I am His servant and He is my God (worshipped). Therefore, as I act for His devotion, you should also worship Him. Allah Almighty be praised upon His favors. Obeying His (God’s) orders and following me, (peace be upon him) is the straight path.

 

This verse is also in continuity of previous verses. Miraculous birth of Prophet Jesus Messiah (peace be upon him), his teachings and miracles are being described continuously. Aim of these entire discussions is to produce the perception of God fearing, obedience of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) and worship of True God into the human beings. The mankind might learn to bow only in front of Allah Almighty remaining apart from the worship of other human beings. This is the Straight Path.
