LESSON # 119 HOLY QUR’AN
BAQARAH – 2 (The Cow)
Allah Hath No Children Of Him
Verse –116 of 286, Section – 14
And they say: Allah hath taken unto Himself a son. Be He glorified! Nay, but whatsoever is in the heavens and the earth is His. All are subservient unto Him.
Wa qaalutta -khazallaahu waladan, Subhaanah. Bal-lahuu maa fis-samaawaati wal-‘arz. Kullul-lahuu qaanituun.
In the last verse it was discussed that the concept of children of Israel and the Christians is false about likeness of a particular direction by the God Almighty, “so we should turn to that particular direction for turning towards Him”. Allah Almighty refuted it and commanded that He is not bound in any side or boundary of the place of worship. But He is the Master of the entire Universe and there are no limitations for Him, so you can turn your faces and bodies to any side for His worship. He will be attentive towards you.
Itta -khaza – (has, have, make, catch, to choose, to elect, to fix upon, to assume, to adopt) translation of all the words is understood as the same.
Qaanituun – (subservient, loyal, servant) Singular to this word is Qaanat which means the person who obeys the order, obedient. The word Qanuut is derived from it. Benediction of the Witr prayer is called the Qanuut prayer because there is complete obeying and obedience of Allah Almighty in it.
The Christians had an other false belief that God Almighty has adopted as His son to the Jesus Christ (peace be upon Him) (I seek shelter in Allah from this thought). This faith of theirs’ is the worst kind of plurality in God Almighty. Allah Almighty commands that He is Pure and Sacred from their all these types of false talks of plurality. He has no child. He is One. He is Master of the entire Universe. All that is present in the earth and skies is obedient of His Order. His Emperor is everywhere. His relation with the creature is that the entire universe, demons and the human beings are worshippers and obedient to Him. He is the Worshipped and God of all. All the things in the universe have bent their heads in front of His Order. It is also the human beings’ excellence to bend their heads in front of Him and not to obey anyone else except Him.
Muslim nation is Flag -holder of Oneness of God and she preaches the faith that infidelity (i.e. ascribing plurality) to Allah is the greatest sin. We should avoid from it and we should believe on the Unity of God by heart.
