Importance of The Scripture and the Criterion

Importance of The Scripture and the Criterion
Surah ‘Al-Baqarah(The Cow) – Chapter – 2) Stage – 1, Verse – 53 of 286, Section – 6 of 40 (Part - 1)


BisMIllaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim In the name ofAllah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
And when We gave unto Moses the Scripture and the Criterion (of right and wrong) that ye might be led aright. Wa ‘iz ‘aataynaa Muusal- Kitaaba  wal-Furqaana  la-‘al-lakum  tahtaduun.

Lesson Al-Furqaan – the Orders, Commands or Mandates, which separate, disunite or dis-join. This word has been derived from the word faraqa which means “to divide or distinguish” the Holy Books (as distinguishing or separating the truth from falsehood). The Commentators of the Religion have different sayings about Furqaan:
·Those Miracles which were bestowed to the Prophet Moses (peace be upon Him) from God, the Most High.

And when We did appoint for Moses forty nights (of solitude), and then ye chose the calf, when he had gone from you, and ye were wrongdoers. Wa ‘iz waa-‘adnaa Muusaaa ‘arba-iina lay-latan-  summat-takhaztu-mul-‘ijla mim- ba’-dihii wa ‘antum zaalimuun.
Lesson Muusaaa – (Moses) was a great, glorious and favorite Prophet (peace be upon Him) of God Almighty. Mostly the Commentators of the religion imagine that the word ‘Moses’ is derived from Hebrew language. Some scholars say that it is an Egyptian word which means child or son. Father’s name of the Prophet Moses (peace be upon Him) was Imran. His sister’s name was Mary and Brother Aaron. They both were elder than Him. The Time of Moses (peace be upon Him) is stated as 1500 B.C. or 1300 B.C. He drove the …

Deliverance from Pharaoh’s folk

Deliverance from Pharaoh’s folk
Surah ‘Al-Baqarah(The Cow) – Chapter – 2) Stage – 1, Verses – 49 & 50 of 286, Section – 6 of 40 (Part - 1)


BisMIllaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim In the name ofAllah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
And (remember) when We did deliver you from Pharaoh’s folk, who were afflicting you with dreadful torment, slaying your sons and sparing your women. And that was a tremendous trial from your Lord. Wa ‘iz najjay-naakum-min –‘Aali- Fir-‘awna yasuu-muuna- kum  suuu-‘al-‘azaabi yuzab-bihuuna ‘abnaaa-‘akum wa yas-tahyuuna nisaaa-‘akum.  Wa fii zaalikum balaaa-‘um-mir-Rabbikum ‘aziim.
Lesson ‘Aali- Fir-‘awna – (Folk, people, near relatives, religion fellows, servants and children of Pharaoh), Pharaoh was title of the King of Egypt. Usually the people imagine a king of the Egypt who was named as Pharaoh. In fact it was not the name of one person. Moreover it was surname of the entire kings of Egypt as the title of the king of China was ‘Khaqaan’ (Emperor) and the King o…

O Israelite! Remember God’s favors & guard yourselves from the Doomsday

Surah ‘Al-Baqarah(The Cow) – Chapter – 2) Stage – 1, Verses – 47 & 48 of 286, Section – 6 of 40 (Part - 1)


BisMIllaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim In the name ofAllah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
O Children of Israel! Remember My favour wherewith I favoured you and how I preferred you to (all) creatures. Yaa-Baniii- ‘Israaa-‘iilaz-kuruu ni’-mati-yal-latiii ‘an-‘amtu ‘alaykum wa ‘annii faz-zaltukum  ‘alal-‘aalamiin.
Lesson Faz-zaltukum – (preferred you), this word has come out from the word Fazal, which means preference. Aim of giving preference over the entire world is that the Israelite remained the most excellent over all the communities and there was none peer of them. However, when they left the Truth misled the Divine’s Law and opposed the last Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon Him), then that preference was snatched from them and they earned anger of God Almighty. Destruction became their fate, and …

45.  And seek help in patience and prayer. And truly it is hard save for the humble-minded—
46.  Who know that they will have to meet their Lord, and that unto Him they are returning. 45.  Wasta-‘iinuu bis-Sabri was-Salaah. Wa ‘innahaa lakabii-ratun ‘illaa ‘alal- Khaashi-iin.
46.  ‘Allaziina yazun-nuuna ‘annahum-mulaaquu Rabbi him wa ‘annahum ‘ilayhi  raaji-‘uun.
Lesson ‘Ista-‘iinuu – (seek help). When anyone feels a difficult task, he needs help of any other person/thing.
