LESSON # 364 FROM HOLY QUR’AN

Praying Humbly For The Liar

Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter – 3)

Verse – 61 of  200, Section –6    (Part – 3)

 

And whoso disputeth with thee concerning him, after the knowledge which hath come unto thee, say (unto him): Come! We will summon our sons and your sons, and our women and your women, and ourselves and yourselves, then we will pray humbly (to our Lord) and (solemnly) invoke the curse of Allah upon those who lie.        

Faman  haaajjaka  fiihi  mim-ba’-di  maa  jaaa-‘aka  minal-‘ilmi  faqul  ta-‘aalaw  nad-‘u  ‘ab-naaa-‘anaa  wa  ‘ab-naaa-‘akum  wa  nisaaa-‘anaa  wa  nisaaa-‘akum  wa  ‘anfusanaa  wa  ‘anfusakum,  summa  nabta-hil  fanaj-‘al-la’-natallaahi  ‘alal-kaazibiin.

Lesson 

     

  The Christians of Syria (Najraan), who came to argue and debate with the Messenger Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), presented their entire false beliefs. Allah Almighty replied them through Holy Qur’an and silenced them.

 

Even after listening to the clear proofs, those Christians of Najraan did not believe it and remained firm on their false faith. Allah Almighty commanded His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) to establish Mubahila with them (both groups would have to get together with their families and pray with pleading that whosoever out of us is liar, invocation would be prayed for his curse and wrath of God). At its first step, this situation of Mubahila will clarify that which the group has really believed in his inner truth and at which extent. Hearing the invitation of Mubahila, the group from Syria (the Christians of Najraan) requested for respite so that they would answer after consultation. When they got together for consultation, then wise persons out of them said, “You people have understood in your hearts that Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) is really Messenger of Allah Almighty. He has described clear and decisive words about Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him), and you also know that Allah Almighty had promised to send His Messenger from the children of Ishmael, and it is possible that He (Muhammad) (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) is that same Messenger. To set up the Mubahila with any Messenger, can result in favor of any nation that none of them (either younger or elder) could escape from destruction and torment.

 

After consulting Syrians (Najraani Christians) attended the court of last Prophet (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). They saw that the Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) was coming out with Hassan and Hussain (his daughter’s sons), Fatima (his daughter and Ali (his son in law) (raziiAllaahu ‘anhum). Looking upon these luminous faces, their superior Clergyman said, “I am looking such pure faces whose prayer can shake the mountains from their places. Do not ruin yourselves by fixing the Mubahila with them.” At last, they decided not to compete and returned after reconciling. It has been mentioned in the Sayings that the Messenger of God Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) said, “If those people would have done Mubahila, then it would rained such fire upon them that Allah Almighty would subvert the Syria (Najraan).

Lesson 

       

Allah Almighty described all the realities about Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) to the Messenger Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) and commanded, “if the Christians quarrel even now with You (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) regarding Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) then do not care for them. Denier of the sunlight is called blind likewise; the denier of facts is wretched and unfortunate”.

 

The people of Scripture used to quarrel with the Messenger of God Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) in the matter that Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) was not servant of Allah Almighty but was His son. They used to say, “if he (peace be upon him) is not son of God Almighty then you (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) should tell us, whose son He (peace be upon him) is”? Responding them Allah Almighty said, “Prophet Adam (peace be upon Him) did have neither father nor mother. Therefore, if Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) had not father then what is there to be wonder? Not having by anyone father, it does not mean that he is son of God. Otherwise, like this, the grade of Prophet Adam (peace be upon Him) should be higher than Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) and he (peace be upon him) would have more right to be called as son of God”.

 

It is the reality that God Almighty created Prophet Adam (peace be upon him) from dust and also created Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) from the dust. Likeness of both of them is the same (peace be upon them). Neither Prophet Adam (peace be upon him) was son of God nor Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon him). After that, Allah Almighty commanded the last Prophet (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), “Whatever We described about “Messiah” (peace be upon him), that entire is quite right. There is no space of doubt in it. You (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) should never be out of the people who have doubts”.

 

By exemplifying Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) with Prophet Adam (peace be upon him), Allah Almighty has proved such clear evidence that no choice of argument remains now in this matter. The Father of entire human beings who (Adam; peace be upon Him) was born in heaven without mother and father, if he (peace be upon Him) is neither God and nor son of God, then one, who is born from the womb of a mother in this world, how can he (peace be upon him) be son of God?
