LESSON # 361
Heavy chastisement of disbelievers in the world and the Hereafter
Surah ‘Aali ‘Imraan (The Family of Imran - 3), Stage – 1,
Verses – 55 & 56 of 200, Section – 6 of 20, (Part – 3)
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
55. (And remember) when Allah said: O Jesus! Lo! I am gathering thee and causing thee to ascend unto Me, and am cleansing thee of those who disbelieve and am setting those who follow thee above those who disbelieve until the Day of Resurrection. Then unto Me ye will (all) return, so I shall judge between you as to that wherein ye used to differ.
56. As for those who disbelieve I shall chastise them with a heavy chastisement in the world and the Hereafter; and they will have no helpers.
55. ‘Iz qaalAllaahu yaa-‘Iisaaa ’Innii muta-waffiika wa raafi-‘uka ‘i-layya wa mutahhi-ruka minallaziina kafaruu wa jaa-‘ilullaziinat-taba-‘uuka faw-qal-laziina kafaruuu ‘ilaa Yawmil-Qiyaamah. Summa ‘ilayya marji-‘ukum fa-‘ahkumu bay-nakum fii-maa kuntum fiihi takh-talifuun.
56. Fa-‘ammallaziina kafaruu fa-‘u-‘azzibuhum ‘azaaban- shadii-dan-fiddunyaa wal-‘Aakhirati, wa maa lahum-min-naasiriin.
When The king, whose ears were poisoned by the disbelievers (children of Israel) (as we have learnt in the previous lesson), sent the persons to arrest the Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon him), so that he might be punished and crucified as much admonitory that other people take it warning and give up following him (peace be upon him).
Then God Almighty satisfied the Prophet Messiah (peace be upon him) and said, “I shall ruin the plans and schemes of those people. They are thinking to kill you and destroy the purpose of My Guidance to the people from your birth. If they did so, I (Allah Almighty) will snatch My Blessing from them. I shall complete your life in this world and purpose of your (peace be upon him) birth in all respect”.
“It will be done so, that I shall take you up to Sky safe and sound. They wish to crucify you (peace be upon him), We shall bring you to heaven. They desire to disgrace you and prevent the people from following you. But We shall keep you out of their reach and pick you up quite pure and blameless from their indecent environment. In spite of it that you are disgraced and the people are hindered from following you due to fear, We shall keep overcoming your followers and believers upon the disbelievers until the Day of Resurrection”.
“Then in the Hereafter, when the entire human beings will return to Me, I shall judge between them as to that wherein they used to differ. As for those who disbelieve I shall chastise them with a heavy chastisement in the Hereafter; and they will have no helpers. And the Believers will be given full remuneration of their good deeds”.
Certainly, Allah Almighty does not like the unjust people.
