Quran Chapter 5 – 75 & 76 (Pt-6, Stg-2) (L-721) - درس قرآن 

Messiah and Mary - Recognized Position

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.)

Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)

75. مَّا ٱلْمَسِيحُ ٱبْنُ مَرْيَمَ إِلَّا رَسُولٌ قَدْ خَلَتْ مِن قَبْلِهِ ٱلرُّسُلُ وَأُمُّهُۥ صِدِّيقَةٌ ۖ كَانَا يَأْكُلَانِ ٱلطَّعَامَ ۗ ٱنظُرْ كَيْفَ نُبَيِّنُ لَهُمُ ٱلْءَايَٰتِ ثُمَّ ٱنظُرْ أَنَّىٰ يُؤْفَكُونَ

76. قُلْ أَتَعْبُدُونَ مِن دُونِ ٱللَّهِ مَا لَا يَمْلِكُ لَكُمْ ضَرًّا وَلَا نَفْعًا ۚ وَٱللَّهُ هُوَ ٱلسَّمِيعُ ٱلْعَلِيمُ


75.  The Messiah, son of Mary, was no other than a Messenger, Messengers (the like of Whom) had passed away before Him. And His Mother was a saintly woman. And they both used to eat (earthly) food. See how We make the Revelations clear for them, and see how they are turned away!

76.  Say: Serve ye in place of Allah that which possesseth for you neither hurt nor use? Allah It is Who is the Hearer, the Knower.
75.  Mal-Masii-hubnu-  Maryama  ‘illaa  Rasuul.  Qad  khalat  min-qab-lihir-Rusul.  Wa  ‘ummuhuu Siddii-qah.  Kaanaa  ya’-kulaanit-ta-‘aam.  ‘Unzur  kayfa  Nubay-yinu  lahumul- ‘Aayaati  summan-zur  ‘annaa  yu’-fakuun.

76.  Qul  ‘ata’-buduuna  min-duuNIllaahi  maa  laa  yamliku  lakum  zarranw-wa  laa  naf-‘aa.  WAllaahu  Huwas-Samii-‘ul-‘Aliim.

Commentary

Siddii-qah – (Saintly woman), the highest rank from the human beings, is of the Messengers and Prophets (peace be upon them). These are Men (male). Second highest rank of the mankind is Sidiiq (Saint), Who understands the truth immediately and clearly. A chaste woman can reach also this rank and she is called Sidiiqah.

True dispositions in respect of Prophet Jesus Christ (peace be upon Him) have been described in this verse. At first, that He (peace be upon Him) was only a Messenger of Allah Almighty, not more than it. Neither He (peace be upon Him) can be God (Allah Almighty), nor a partner in His Divinity, and being a Messenger, it is not an extraordinary matter.

Many Messengers and Prophets have passed away before Him (peace be upon Them). As they were Mankind, likewise Jesus Christ was also a Mankind (peace be upon Them) however, being a Messenger, His degree of dignity is higher than other human beings. His mother was also a Mankind and Her rank is higher too than other common people as She was a Siddiiqah (Saintly Woman). Proof of Their being a mankind is that they both were necessitous of taking food, so that they may maintain their lives. Allah Almighty (God) is not needy of anything, and He says, “See how We make the Revelations clear for them”, even then, see them - how they are turned away. The person, who neither can provide any gain, nor he is master of any detriment, nor he can hear and nor understand, how can he be a worshipped. These all virtues are only of Allah Almighty, so it is wrong and useless to bow humbly before (or determine worshipped) any other than Allah Almighty, because actually; only He is God, the Hearer and the Knower.
