Lesson

 

The characteristics of the righteous group from the People of the Scripture are being described. Their three virtues were stated in the first verse, that is to say; they are on the straight path, recite the Revelations of Allah Almighty in the hours of night and they fall prostrate before Allah Almighty. Now their some more qualities have been mentioned.

 

They have faith in Allah Almighty and the Last Day whole heartedly, fear from the Day of Judgment and want to precede running fast from others when they are called for any good work. Moreover, they also wish to bring others towards the right path. No doubt, these are the People from the Jews, to whom Allah Almighty bestowed fortune of good disposition and special part of the guidance.

 

It has been cleared from the verse that although different types of evils had been produced into the Jews, despite reciting the glad tidings about the Last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) in their Holy and Heavenly Books, they remained firm upon the denial. Even then, there were such People present between them, who succeeded in recognizing the Truth leaving the stubbornness and spite. It rained such blessings of Allah Almighty upon those People. Other Jews who used to deny the True Religion to keep up their false dignity, their end would be very bad.   

 

So it is evident that he/she gets the Divine guidance, who leaves the stubbornness, recites the Revelations of Allah Almighty, also falls prostrate before Him at night, believes in Oneness of God Almighty and the Day of Resurrection, escapes from the evils and runs towards the good deeds. Such People will get meed from Allah Almighty. He knows the pious People very well. Therefore, whenever the evils of the Jews are discussed, then these types of sober and abstinent persons are exempted.

All The People Of The Scripture Are Not Alike

LESSON # 409 FROM HOLY QUR’AN

All The People Of The Scripture Are Not Alike

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

Verse –113 of 200, Section –12    (Part – 4) 

They are not all alike. Of the People of the Scripture there is a staunch community who recite the Revelations of Allah in the hours of night, falling prostrate (before Him). Laysuu  sawaaa-‘aa.  Min  ‘Ahlil-Kitaabi  ‘ummatun-  qaaa-‘imatuny-yat-luuna  ‘Aa-yaatillaahi  ‘aanaaa-‘al-lay-li  wa  hum  yasjuduun.

Lesson 

 

In the previous lessons, the religious condition, social, economical and political circumstances, and after life result of the People of the Scripture have been checked. Due to one sentence of these verses, the Muslims were taken in for a long time (they remained in deception).

 

Allah Almighty commanded, “They have earned anger from their Lord and provoked”. The Muslims took from it that ‘the Jews have been bereaved of sovereignty and kingdom forever. They will never become the king of any state/government’.

 

In May 1949, an Empire named Israel established with the support of United States of America, United Kingdom and Russia (then Union of Soviet Socialist Republic) upon a small part of holy land Palestine. Now the Muslims imagined, “How did it happen so?” whereas, Allah Almighty had commanded them in these verses clearly that they might escape only in two forms from the wrath, disgrace and wretchedness. Either they grasp (hold fast) the rope of Allah Almighty or make an agreement with other people and nations, and get their support. It is a universal truth that the so-called State of Israel exists; her existence depends upon the base of enmity by other Sovereignty, which suppose the Muslims as their own enemies. Individually the Jews have not too much ability to stand at their own feet.

 

It is being commanded in this verse, “You should not consider the Jews and the Christians equal. Some of them are pious persons also. Their three qualities are being described here. Remaining will be discussed in succeeding verse:

 

  1. There is a staunch community (who are on the straight path).

 

  1.  They recite the Revelations of Allah Almighty in the hours of night and in the silence of night.

 

  1. They also fall prostrate before Allah Almighty.
