Payment of wages to believers in full (their earning)

LESSON # 362

Payment of wages to believers in full (their earning)

Surah ‘Aali ‘Imraan (The Family of Imran - 3), Stage – 1,
Verse – 57 of 200, Section – 6 of 20, (Part – 3)
In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

57.  And as for those who believe and do good works, He will pay them their wages in full. And Allah loveth not wrongdoers.       
57.  Wa  ‘ammallaziina  ‘aama-nuu  wa  ‘amilus-saalihaati  fayu-wafiihim  ‘ujuurahum.  WAllaahu  laa  yuhibbuz-zaalimiin.    

It was discussed in the previous verses: God Almighty will destroy the confederacies of disbeliever children of Israel. He will save His Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) from their causing troubles with His most dignified and best management. He will disgrace and abase the Infidels, punish them severely in this world and the Hereafter. In this verse, it has been described about the wages and remuneration of the Believers and Pious persons.

We believe that when the children of Israel strengthened their impure schemes, then Allah Almighty picked the Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) up alive to the heavens. Many Sayings of the Last Messenger (peace be upon him) give clues that when the world will be filled with infidelity and evils near the Hereafter, then Jesus (peace be upon him) will be descent by God Almighty as a most faithful helper of Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). Allah Almighty will show the world: How much good relationships have the former Prophets (peace be upon them) with His beloved and last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him)? Jesus (peace be upon him) will slaughter The Liar (Dajjaal) and kill his followers (the Jews) searching them here and there. No Jew will remain living. Until that the trees and the stones will inform: Kill the Jew who is standing behind us. Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) will break the Crucifix. He (peace be upon him) will lead the entire world unto the path of Belief after reforming the false beliefs of the Christians. Then only God’s true religion Islam will remain at the end of all dissensions.

We knew from the previous lesson that Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) has been lifted alive to the heaven and the faith of the children of Israel is false that He (peace be upon him) was slain. There is no known reason to disbelieve in it, if it is perused with deep thought. If Jesus (peace be upon him) can be born without father, if he can fashion out of clay the likeness of a bird, and he breathes into it and it is a bird, by Allah’s leave and if he can heal the person who was born blind, and the leper, and if he can raise the dead by God’s leave, then how can it be far to pick his body up by Allah’s leave? As the Angels (peace be upon them) exist in the heavens, likewise Jesus (peace be upon him) can live there also for thousands of the years.

It is not wisdom to sit in a state of ease and comfort waiting for arrival of Jesus Messiah (peace be upon him). It is our (all Muslims’) duty that we should try our best to raise the Word of Allah Almighty and keep performing the duties every time rested upon us by Islam.
