An Enlightening Commentary

into the Light of the Holy Quran
Vol: 9

From Surah al-Kahf (18) to Surah Ta Ha (20)

Introduction

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

In The Name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful

“Verily the Qur'an doth guide to that which is most right (or stable) (to run
societies), and giveth the glad tidings to the Believers who work deeds of
righteousness, that they shall have a magnificent reward”1.

“We have sent down to thee the book explaining all things, a Guide, a Mercy, and
Glad tidings to Muslims"2.

“When those come to thee who believe in Our Signs, say: 'Peace be on you: Your
Lord hath inscribed for Himself (the rule on Mercy; verily, if any of you did evil in
ignorance, and thereafter repented, and amended (his conduct), Lo! He is oft-
forgiving, Most Merciful”3.

The light of Islam is illuminating hearts of individuals in nearly all parts of the world, in spite
of heavy barriers and careful controls and religious interrogation exerted by not only many
governments of non-Muslim nations, but also in some Muslim countries, against their
believing people, especially during the years after the Islamic Revolution of Iran.

The effective influence of the light of the truth together with the speed in the movement of
the Age has brought forth a more vital exchange of thought and religious ideology in
connection with the Holy Qur'an.

In regard to this, we refer to what the Messenger of Allah (S) has said about it:

When afflictions surround you like the dark night refer to the Qur'an, because, it is an
Intercessor whose intercession is accepted. It reports the evils (of people) which will be
confirmed. It leads the person to Heaven who puts it in front of himself (follows it); and he
who puts it behind himself (neglects it) will be driven to Hell.

This very Qur'an is the best guide to the best ways. It is a Book in which there are useful
explanations, statements and gaining (of goals). It is the Separator (of right and wrong).4

Obviously, those people whose language is not Arabic can refer to the Holy Book in English,

But Najashi decided to personally summon the Muslims and hearken to their sayings. Ja‘far,
who was the representative of the Muslims, began speaking at the presence of the king of
Ethiopia.

He said his words about the wrongdoings of idolatry, superstitions and transgressions of the
Age of Ignorance. He informed Najashi of the advent of Islam and luminosity of the religion
of Hadrat Muhammad (S). Ja‘far spoke so influentially that Najashi wept and sent the
pagans’ presents back to them.

He said:

“The Lord, Who gave me power, did not take bribery from me. Why should I take bribery
from you?”

That meeting ended with the benefit of Muslims and the loss of infidels. After this defeat,
‘Amru‘as contemplated and, on the following day, offered the king a new suggestion. In
order to excite the religious zeal of Najashi, he told him that Muslims had some notions
which were against his belief. Najashi summoned Muslims once more and asked them their
belief about Messiah (as).

In answer to him, Ja‘far Tayyar recited some verses of the Qur’an from Surah Maryam up to
the verse which says:

“This is Jesus, son of Mary, a statement of truth, concerning which they doubt.”.

By hearing the verses of the Qur’an, Najashi shed tears and said:

“This is the truth”.

After this second defeat, when ‘Amru‘as wanted to start another new effort, Najashi raised
his hand and gave him a sharp slap in his face.37

Surah Maryam – Verse 36

وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ رَبّـِي وَرَبُّكُمْ فَاعْبُدُوهُ هَذَا صِرَاطٌ مُّسْتَقِيمٌ

36. “And verily Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship (only) Him. This is a
straight path.”

The persistence of Messiah (as) on Monotheism, and his emphasis that the straight path is
only this one, is an answer to the adherents of trinity as well as others.

(A similar text to the abovementioned holy verse has also occurred in Surah’Al-i-‘Imran, No.
3, verse 51, and Surah Az-Zukhruf, No. 43, verse 64).

Through introducing himself, Jesus (as) said he was a servant of Allah:

“…Verily I am servant of Allah…”38.

Then, the first command he received was about prayer and worship:

Page 145

“…and He has enjoined on me prayer…”39,

and the first program he announced was worshipping Allah:

“…So worship (only) Him…”.

Thus taking Jesus as a Son of God is an alteration in religion which causes blasphemy.

However, this verse implies that the last word of Jesus, after introducing himself with the
qualities which were previously referred to, is the subject of Monotheism, specially on the
field of worship, on which he emphasized more.

By this verse, Jesus (as) says:

“And verily Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship (only) Him. This is a
straight path.”

Thus, from very beginning of his life, Messiah (as) struggled against any blasphemy, and
worshipping gods of dualism and polytheism, because monotheism, and worshipping Allah,
is the straight path, while the rest paths are some deviated paths. (In the Qur’an, the path
of Allah and His Messenger, accompanied with worshipping Him, has been introduced as
the ‘straight path’.)

Surah Maryam – Verses 37 - 38

فَاخْتَلَفَ االَحْزَابُ مِن بَيْنِهِمْ فَوَيْلٌ لّـِلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِن مَّشْهَدِ يَوْمٍ
عَظِيمٍ

أَسْمِعْ بِهِمْ وَأَبْصِرْ يَوْمَ يَأْتُونَنَا لَكِنِ الظَّالِمُونَ الْيَوْمَ فِي ضَالَلٍ
مُّبِينٍ

37. “Then the sects did differ among themselves; and woe to those who
disbelieved because of presence on the great day.”
38. “How well they will hear and see on the day they come to Us! But the unjust
(even) this day are in manifest straying.”

‘A party’ is a group of people working with together and who have some particular goals
and position which are usually united.

The Arabic word /mašhad/ means either the site of the attendance of people, or the place of
bearing witness, because, on the Day of Judgment both people attend there, and a lot of
witnesses from angels and prophets will testify upon the deeds of man.

Some people believed in Jesus as God, like the group of Ya‘qhubiyyah; some others said
