English Translation: Page 57
Our Lord! We believe in what You have sent down, and we follow the
Messenger [(‘Îsâ (Jesus)]; so write us down among those who bear witness (to
the truth i.e. Lâ ilâha illallâh
- none has the right to be worshipped
And they (disbelievers) plotted to kill ‘Îsâ [(Jesus)
عليه السلام], and
Allâh plotted too. And Allâh is the Best of those who plot.
And (remember) when Allâh said: "O ‘Îsâ (Jesus)! I will
take you and raise you to Myself and clear you [of the forged statement that ‘Îsâ
(Jesus) is Allâh’s son] of those who disbelieve, and I will make those who
follow you (Monotheists, who worship none but Allâh) superior to those who
disbelieve [in the Oneness of Allâh, or disbelieve in some of His Messengers,
e.g. Muhammad صلى الله
عليه وسلم, ‘Îsâ (Jesus), Mûsâ
(Moses), etc., or in His Holy Books, e.g. the Taurât (Torah), the Injeel
(Gospel), the Qur’ân] till the Day of Resurrection
Then you will return to Me and I will judge between you in the matters in which
you used to dispute."
"As to those who disbelieve, I will punish them with a severe
torment in this world and in the Hereafter, and they will have no helpers."
And as for those who believe (in the Oneness of Allâh) and do
righteous good deeds, Allâh will pay them their reward in full. And Allâh does
not like the Zâlimun
(polytheists and wrong-doers).
This is what We recite to you (O Muhammad صلى
وسلم) of the Verses and the Wise Reminder (i.e. the
Verily, the likeness of ‘Îsâ (Jesus) before Allâh is the
likeness of Adam. He created him from dust, then (He) said to him:
"Be!" - and he was.
(This is) the truth from your Lord, so be not of those who doubt.
Then whoever disputes with you concerning him [‘Îsâ (Jesus)]
after (all this) knowledge that has come to you [i.e. ‘Îsâ (Jesus) being a
slave of Allâh, and having no share in Divinity], say: (O Muhammad
صلى الله عليه
وسلم) "Come, let us call our sons and your sons,
our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves - then we pray and invoke
(sincerely) the Curse of Allâh upon those who lie."
(V.3:55) The advent (descent) of ‘Îsâ (Jesus), [son of Maryam (Mary)]
عليه السلام .
a) Narrated Abu Hurairah رضي الله
عنه Allâh’s Messenger صلى
الله عليه و
سلم said, "By Him in Whose Hand my soul is, surely [‘Îsâ
(Jesus)], the son of Maryam (Mary) عليه
السلامwill shortly descend amongst you
(Muslims), and will judge mankind justly by the law of the Qur’ân (as a just
ruler); he will break the cross and kill the pigs and there will be no Jîzyah"
(i.e. taxation taken from non-Muslims). Money will be in abundance so that
nobody will accept it, and a single prostration to Allâh (in prayer) will be
better than the whole world and whatever is in it." Abu Hurairah added:
"If you wish, you can recite (this Verse of the Qur’ân): "And there
is none of the people of the Scriptures (Jews and Christians) but must believe
in him [i.e. ‘Îsâ (Jesus) عليه
السلام as a Messenger of Allâh and a human
being] before his [‘Îsâ (Jesus) عليه
السلام or a Jew’s or Christian’s] death,
and on the Day of Resurrection, he [‘Îsâ (Jesus)
عليه السلام] will be
a witness against them." (4:159).
(See Fath Al-Bari , Vol.7, Page No.302) According to the quotation of
Kushmaihani there is the word Al-Jizyah * instead of Al-Harb (Sahih
Al-Bukhâri, Vol.4, Hadîth No.657).
b) Narrated Abu Hurairah رضي الله
عنه Allâh’s Messenger صلى
وسلم said: "How will you be when the son of Maryam
(Mary) [i.e. ‘Îsâ (Jesus) عليه
السلام descends amongst you, and he will
judge people by the Law of the Qur’ân and not by the law of the Injeel
(Gospel)." (Fath Al-Bari, Vol.7, Pages 304 and 305) (Sahih Al-Bukhâri,
Vol.4, Hadîth No.658).
* The Jizyah: a tax imposed on non-Muslims who would keep their own
religion, rather than embrace Islâm) will not be accepted by ‘Îsâ (Jesus)
عليه السلام, but all
people will be required to embrace Islâm and there will be no other
