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

Verse – 3& 4  of  200, Section –1    (Part – 3)


  1. He hath revealed unto thee (Muhammad) the Scripture with truth, confirming that which was (revealed) before it, even as He revealed the Torah and the Gospel-
  1. Aforetime, for a guidance to mankind; and hath revealed the Criterion (of right and wrong). Lo! Those who disbelieve the Revelations of Allah, theirs will be a heavy doom. And Allah is Requite (the wrong).
 3.  Nazzala  ‘alaykal-Kitaaba  bil-Haqqi  musaddiqal-limaa  bayna  yadayhi  wa  ‘anzalat-Taw-raata  wal-‘Injiil

  1. Min-qablu  Hudal-linnaasi  wa  ‘anzalal-Furqaan.  ‘Innal-laziina  kafaruu  bi—‘aayaatil-laahi  lahum  ‘azaabun-  shadiid.  Wallaahu  ‘Aziizun-  Zuntiqaam.




bil-Haqqi – (with truth), wisdom, knowledge, and justice is also entering in the meaning of the word Haqq along with truth. That is to say; the Speech of Allah (Holy Qur’an) is full of wisdom as well as on truth.


Musaddiqun– (a verifier, an affirmer, one who believes other), Holy Qur’an is the Scripture, confirming that, which was revealed before it. It acknowledges each Heavenly Book as on truth, and believes in the Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon them) and their teachings from Allah Almighty.


‘al-Furqaan– (a standard of judging, the Criterion), it means that specified discretion which is born between right and wrong. According to some religious scholars, it aims the miracles, arguments and proofs which were conferred to each Messenger/Prophet (peace be upon him). Furqaanis also the name of Holy Qur’an. Its literal meanings are ‘the Separator’, that is to say; the Separator of right and wrong, true and false.


Allah Almighty has commanded in this verse that “O Messenger! Holy Qur’an revealed to you with truth and justice in accord with real wisdom and it has another peculiarity that it confirms the Scripture, which was revealed before it like Torah and Gospel etc. These Books used to guide the ancient people. Like this, as though Allah Almighty told that the faith regarding Godhead of Jesus and being son of God did not exist in any heavenly book, because according to the principles of religion all Heavenly Books are unanimous.


Allah Almighty revealed such proper things in every reign, which differentiate and distinct between right and wrong, lawful and unlawful, true and false. At last, He also commanded that the people who will deny believing in the verses of Allah Almighty intentionally, He would punish them (certainly). He is Overcoming, Requite and Perfect Capable to take revenge.
