Lesson 

       

In the former verse Allah Almighty described, “ ’Allaahu  Waliyyul-  Mu’-miniin” (Allah is the Protecting Guardian of the believers). In this verse He commanded that O the People of the Scripture! While Allah is the Protecting Guardian of the believers, then you cannot deceive them. It is the wish of some people of the Scripture that as they (themselves) went astray, the Muslims should also be mislead from the Right Path. But the Muslims will never be entrapped in their net. However, they are enhancing in misfortune of their depravity. Harm of these attempts will come up to them, which they do not understand presently.

 

Then the People of the Scripture have been warned, “Do not deny the Word of Allah Almighty, whereas those Holy Books, upon which you have faith, contain the glad tidings about the Last Messenger, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) and the Holy Qur’an to which your hearts understand well. And whenever you are alone, then you accept it. But openly you avoid to believe in the Last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him).

 

The children of Israel had dismissed some commands of Torah totally due to worldly greediness, some were concealed and did not use to proclaim about them. For instance; they did not use to mention the glad tidings and predictions regarding the Last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him). It has been pointed out towards these types of matters that, O the People of the Scripture! Why do you amalgamate true and false? And why do you falsify the true glad tidings? Whereas you know that, these all sayings are quite right.

 

It seems from these verses that the People of the Scripture keep envy with the Muslims and try always to let them go astray like themselves. For this purpose, they will adopt different schemes for the Muslims; they will conspire and consult secretly against them. But Allah Almighty is the Protecting Guardian of the believers, He will never let them succeed in their plans.

Lessons from Holy Qur'an

A Way Of Prophet Abraham (peace be upon him)

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

Verse – 67 & 68 of  200, Section –7   (Part – 3)

 

  1. 67.  Abraham was not a Jew, nor yet a Christian; but he was an upright man who had surrendered (to Allah), and he was not of the idolaters.

 67.  Maa kaana  ‘Ibraa-hiimu  Yahuu-diyyanw-wa  laa  Nasraa-niyyanw-wa  laakin  kaana  Haniifam-Muslimaa.  Wa  maa  kaana  minal-mushrikiin. 

68. ‘Inna  ‘aw-lannaasi  bi-‘ibraahma  lallaziinat-taba-‘uuhu  wa  haazan-Nabiyyu  wallaziina  ‘aamanuu.  Wallaahu  Waliyyul-  Mu’-miniin.

Lesson 

 

Haniifan – (an upright man), the person, who goes the right path and leaves all spurious ways, who disconnects his relations from entire sides and connects only with God Almighty, Who is the Most High (the Worshipped). The Holy Qur’an has named him (peace be upon him) as Haniifam-Muslimaa such blessed name.   

 

Musliman – (who has surrendered to Allah, subject of Islam, Muslim and taslim (salutation, complement, admission and accepting) is Salama, which means obedience, subjection and subordination. This Will, salutation, complement, admission, subjection, subordination and accepting is actually real religion. This very manner remained always of the entire Prophets (peace be upon them). Prophet Abraham (peace be upon him) enlightened particularly this peculiarity of obedience with his complete prostration.

  

Allah Almighty has described the people of the Scripture about the Rule Of Conduct Of The Prophet Abraham (peace be upon him) in this verse. He was a simple Muslim, that is to say; leaving all the wrong paths he (peace be upon him) had chosen only one path which lead to Allah Almighty, he was only His obedient. His (peace be upon him) life’s each moment tells that he was a statue of Will, salutation, complement, admission, subjection, subordination and accepting with his perfect obedience. Leaving his wife and newly born son in the barren valley of Arab for obeying the command of Allah Almighty, becoming ready to sacrifice his beloved son Ishmael (peace be upon him) for the cause of Allah Almighty and construction of the House of Allah Almighty in Mecca (Khana Ka’-ba). These entire things indicate that how much he (peace be upon him) was obedient to Allah Almighty. Absolutely he was not of the idolaters as you are saying today someone son and someone daughter of Allah Almighty.

 

Allah Almighty pointed out that either they had more relation with Prophet Abraham (peace be upon him) who believed in Him or this consistency has been bestowed to the Last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be  upon him) and his nation. This nation has more suitableness with Prophet Abraham (peace be upon him) in its faith, deeds and name (Muslim). The Prophet, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) of this nation was sent due to the supplications of Prophet Abraham (peace be upon him), and the teachings of Holy Qur’an are based on these principals.
