Lesson
       
God Almighty commanded in the previous verse that He will punish those people who will deny His Revelations. In addition, it has been described in this verse that He has Full knowledge about everything. As His Authority is perfect, likewise, His Knowledge is also very perfect. Nothing (big or small) can remain hidden for a moment from His Knowledge in the earth or the skies. He knows specific difference among the entire goodness and evils. Where can a criminal go who wishes to hide himself running out?

It manifests too from this narration that Jesus (peace be upon him) cannot be God because he did not know such full knowledge. He (peace be upon him) did know only that, which was revealed by Allah Almighty unto him. For refutation of godhead of Jesus (peace be upon him), Allah Almighty described another characteristic. That is to say, “He it is Who fashions you according to His Wisdom and Knowledge in the wombs of mothers as pleases Him. There is no God save Him. He brings in to being as He wishes - male or female, handsome or ill looking, clear-sighted or blind, dumb or deaf. He causes to rise a human being from an ordinary drop of seminal fluid and blood.” Therefore, how can he (peace be upon him) be called God who remained in the darkness of his mother’s womb, eats, drinks, makes a water and performs a function of nature.

The Christians used to produce the proof that Jesus (peace be upon him) is God as; while there is no apparent father of him, then God is his father (let us flee to Allah Almighty). They are being replied for their question in this verse. That is to say’ Allah Almighty prepares the form of mankind in the womb with His Divine Power as He wishes, either through father and mother (both) or with the power of mother only. Hence, He described the Attribute of ‘Azii-zul-  Hakiim , that is to say’ He is Excelling, Owner of all strong Powers and the Almighty, the Wise.

He created Adam (peace be upon him) without father and mother, brought in to being his wife Eve (peace be upon them) without mother. Like this, He produced Jesus (peace be upon him) without father. How can someone have doubt in the Wisdom and Knowledge of such Creator, Master and the Wise?
