LESSON # 376 FROM HOLY QUR’AN
Education By Apostle
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter – 3)
Verse –79b & 80 of 200, Section –8 (Part – 3)
79b. wa laakin kuunuu Rabbaa-niyyiina bimaa kuntum tu-‘allimuunal-Kitaaba wa bi-maa kuntum tadrusuun,
80. Wa laa ya’-murakum ‘an-tattakhizul-malaaa-‘ikata wan-Nabiyyiina ‘arbaabaa. ‘Aya’-murukum- bil-kufri ba’-da ‘iz ‘antum-Muslimuun.
Rabbaa-niyyiina – (faithful servants of the Lord), this word has come out from Rabb. Rabb means The Cherisher, The Provident; God. That is to say; That Entity, Who bestowed existence to the entire creation and universe, and granted steps for improvement and completion.
It has been corroborated more in this verse, which was described in the previous lesson, namely a Prophet upon whom Allah Almighty takes pity too much that He causes to reach him up to the rank of Prophet-hood, he (peace be upon him) will never invite the people to worship him instead of God Almighty. On the contrary, he (peace be upon him) brings the people in Islam causing them to release from infidelity and belief in a plurality of God Almighty. How can he (peace be upon him) teach them about infidelity?
Holy Messenger of Islam (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) will say even to the Jews, “O the People of the Scripture! Which religiousness you had earlier,
There was a tradition between you to recite and teach the Scripture that have remained no more. You can get that very earlier perfection if stay by my side now, and become scholars, philosophers, jurists, devotees, pious persons and God worshippers again. This opportunity can be acquired now through reciting, learning and teaching the Holy Qur’an.”
The Messenger (peace be upon Him) sent by God Almighty, cannot preach the people to make the angels and prophets as their lords like the Christians who had fixed the Prophet Jesus Christ and the angel Gabriel (peace be upon Them). Moreover, one group out of them had fixed Prophet Uzair ‘Ezra’ (peace be upon Him) and some Idolaters had settled the angels as their lords. When the angels and Prophets (peace be upon them) cannot be the partners in the Divinity, then the idols of stones and the wood of crucifix are in which count?
At the end Allah Almighty commanded, “How can it be so, that a Prophet who tries to make the people Rabbaa-ni(faithful servants of the Lord), the Muslim and Muwahhid (believing in one God). And when they embrace, then he (the prophet) (peace be upon Him) destroy all his labor and performance due to bringing them towards infidelity and belief in a plurality of God Almighty. Like this Allah Almighty disclosed the innocence of the prophets (peace be upon Him) openly. He refuted those entire calumnies, which the Christians had charged falsely upon the prophets (peace be upon Him).
