Advice for the Jews and the Christians

Surah MAAA-‘IDAH (The Table Spread) – Chapter – 5)

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim. 
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)


(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)
 يَٰٓأَهْلَ ٱلْكِتَٰبِ قَدْ جَآءَكُمْ رَسُولُنَا يُبَيِّنُ لَكُمْ عَلَىٰ فَتْرَةٍ مِّنَ ٱلرُّسُلِ أَنتَقُولُوا۟ مَا جَآءَنَا مِنۢ بَشِيرٍ وَلَا نَذِيرٍ فَقَدْ جَآءَكُم بَشِيرٌ وَنَذِيرٌ وَٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَىْءٍ قَدِيرٌ (19

19.  O People of the Scripture! Now hath Our Messenger come unto you to make things plain unto you after an interval (of cessation) of the messengers, lest ye should say: There came not unto us a messenger of cheer nor any warner. Now hath a Messenger of cheer and a warner come unto you. And Allah is Able to do all things.     
19.  Yaaa-‘Ahlal-Kitaabi  qad  jaaa-‘akum  RasuuluNaa  yubayyinu  lakum  ‘alaa  fatratim-minar-rusuli  ‘an- taquuluu  maa  jaaa-‘anaa  mim-  bashiirinw-wa  laa  naziir;  faqad  jaaa-‘akum  Bashiirunw-wa  Naziir.  WAllaahu  ‘alaa  kulli  shay-‘in  Qadiir.     


Fatratun – {to be lazy, to become loose, an interval (of cessation)}, fatuur is also from it, which means “deficiency, reduction, loss”. If something has been happening constantly, and then it has been stopped and its act of continuing has been suspended, this process of suspension and stoppage is called fatarah. And the period, during which it remained suspended, will be called “The Time of Fataratun”. No Messenger/Prophet had come for nearly six hundred year, after the Prophet Jesus (peace be upon Him), and coming of the Prophets/Messengers was ceased. It is called Fataratun. Here it has been described that “The Messenger of the end times, that is to say; Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), Last Messenger of Allah Almighty has come now unto you after an interval (of cessation) of the messengers. Believe in Him and obey Him (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him)!

It has been described in this verse, “Our Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) has come unto you for the purpose, “to tell about the good news to the good people and to warn the evildoers about their punishment”. According to Arabic language, Bashiir is the Cheer and Naziir is the Warner. Therefore, every Messenger’s title is Bashiir and Naziir (peace be upon Them). This verse discloses that in future; none can say, “No Bashiir (Cheer) and Naziir (Warner) came towards us”, because this Last Messenger of Allah Almighty, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) has come in the world, Who is Bashiir and Naziir also. Neither the world can be arranged, nor the Hereafter without obeying Him (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him).

At the end, the People of the Scripture have been threatened, “Remember! Allah is Able to do all things. If you will not believe, He can bring into being more Believers of His religion, emitting you and can deprive you of His Mercy due to your wicked deeds”.
