Verses –156 to 157a of 176, Section – 22/24 (Part – 6)

156.  And because of their disbelief and of their speaking against Mary a tremendous calumny-    


157a.  And because of their saying: We slew the Messsiah, Jesus son of Mary, Allaah’s messenger; they slew him not, nor crucified him, but it appeared so unto them. And lo! Those who disagree concerning it are in doubt thereof.              

156.  Wa  bi-kufrihim  wa  qawlihim  ‘alaa  Maryama  buhtaanan  ‘aziimaa.  


157a.  Wa  qawlihim  ‘innaa  qatal-nal-Masiiha  ‘Iisabna- Maryama  RasuulAllaah.  Wa  maa  qata-luuhu  wa  maa  salabuuhu  wa  laakin-  shubbiha  lahum.  Wa  ‘innal-laziinakh-talafuu  fiihi  la-fii  shakkim-minh.

Shubbiha – (it appeared so), it has been derived from the word tashbiihun, origin of which is shabaahat. A word mushaabihat has also come out from the same origin. Shabaahat means ‘matching of face with someone else and two or more persons having alike (as same) faces’. Tashbiih means ‘to make anything to suit (tally) the other and to show that both have the same shape’. Here it aims that the face of another person appeared before them such as the face of Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him).


Those badness of the Jews have been mentioned in this verse, which they committed against Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him). At first they denied clearly to believe and presented many curious conditions for it, likewise they did against Prophet Moses (peace be upon him). They were seen many miracles and signs of truth regarding the Prophets (peace be upon them), but they did not to be moved. Moreover, on the contrary they became Their {Prophets (peace be upon them)} enemies. They accused Mary (Mother of Jesus (peace be upon them) of sin, which was entirely a lie. She (peace be upon her) was surely a chaste woman. It is apparent that their two bad habits were very old and deep i.e. insolence and disobedience.


The Jews used to obey the command only in the form when any power super to them was standing ready to beat and punish them. At that time, they used to be obedient by compulsion due to constraint of fear, but as soon as they used to feel themselves free from any kind of threat, become at once as they were earlier. According to their thought, they caught Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) and crucified, and then bragged, “We have slain Jesus (peace be upon him)”. It was their very oppressive arrogance, but Holy Qur’aan has told very clearly that their claim is wrong. They hanged and slew any other person in deception, who had the face like Jesus (peace be upon him). Neither they crucified Jesus (peace be upon him), nor killed. With effect from that time, till to date they have been deceived and seized in doubts. Not only the Jews, but also some more people are in doubt about the execution of Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him), and their all discourses in this case depend only on guess, opinion and thought.
