Lesson # 810 from the Noble Quran
Every Prophet came unto His nation to manifest its evil
Surah ‘Al-‘An-‘aam (Cattle) – Chapter – 6)–Stage – 2
Verses –154 of 165, Section – 19 of 20 (Part – 8)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
|Again, We gave the Scripture unto Moses, complete for him who would do good, an explanation of all things, a guidance and a mercy, that they might believe in the meeting with their Lord.||Summa ‘aatayNaa Muusal-Kitaaba tama-man ‘alallaziii ‘ahsana wa tafsiilal-likulli shay- ‘inw-wa hudanw-wa rahmatalla- ‘allahum bi-liqaaa-‘i Rabbihim yu’-minuun.|
The commands, mentioned in the first three verses of this Section, which we discussed in the previous lesson, have been prescribed for the entire human being always and as many Prophets (peace be upon Them) came from the beginning, they all used to convey and admonish the same commands to the people according to the occasion. Every Prophet (peace be upon Him) came unto His nation for manifesting the badness of that particular evil, in which more people of that time were involved and He tried to remove that evil from human beings.
In the same manner, the Scripture Torah was bestowed to Prophet and Messenger Moses (peace be upon Him), and in it, complete Rules were mentioned for the people, so that they may do good, and entire commands were caused to understand in detail. It was a complete Code of Human Life, and no stone was left unturned to manifest that Code for the good people according to that era.
Allah Almighty commands: You have listened to those Rules, which We have prescribed from the beginning, for the human being to live in this world. These are the Rules, which the Prophets (peace be upon Them) used to explain before the humankind every time. Which Prophet (peace be upon Him) used to observe any particular evil among His nation, which was opposite to any of the aforementioned Rules, He used to press upon that Rule, during His time.
After that, when the time of Prophet Moses (peace be upon Him) came and the tyrant Pharaoh of Egypt overpowered the Children of Israel, too much that they were half-dead, then Allah Almighty caused to discharge them from his grasp through Prophet Moses (peace be upon Him). And for their guidance, the Prophet (peace be upon Him) was given the Scripture.
In that Scripture, Allah Almighty explained everything according to that period so that It may guide those people at every difficult time and the opportunity may meet them to know their Creator and Lord. And they may have complete faith in, that they would have to meet with Allah Almighty after death, where the obedient will be awarded and the disobedient will be punished severely.
First Book of God’s Law is Torah in the world and the Children of Israel are the first nation, which was bestowed with the complete Religious Law of Allah Almighty, which was according to the circumstances of that time. The Palms of Prophet David (peace be upon Him) was “the Supplement” of that first Scripture i.e. Torah. The Gospel was revealed to support Its one aspect, which was necessary to be strengthened in the terms of the time. Then substance of all those Scriptures and decent version is Holy Qur’an, Which is sufficient for all times. It will be discussed in the next lesson.
