Juz 3

Summary of Juz 3

This summary of the third Juz commences from Ayah 253 of Surah Al Baqarah and concludes at Ayah 91 of Surah Al Imran.

Allah declares all interest-related transactions to be undeniably Haram towards the end of Surah Baqarah.

The Surah also relates the incidents of two Ambiya AS whose hearts Allah put at ease when He demonstrated to them how He resurrects the dead.

Throughout Surah Baqarah, Allah repeatedly emphasises the importance of pondering over the verses of the Qur’an. At the very end of the Surah, Allah teaches man the method of making dua as well as the words to be used.

 The first eighteen verses of Surah  Al Imran make it clear that only Allah is worthy of worship, that the Day of Qiyamah will certainly dawn and that the people will definitely be rewarded and punished for their actions.

Allah tells mankind that the Qur’an was revealed to distinguish between truth and falsehood.

Allah also speaks of the Battle of Badr in this Surah. If the Mu’minin were to ponder about the stunning victory that the Muslims earned in this battle, they can learn volumes about Allah’s power. The true Mu’minin are defined as people who persevere through hardships, who spend their wealth in Allah’s way and awaken during the latter part of the night to beg pardon from Allah.

Allah speaks of Isa AS and his mother Maryam Radhiallahu anha. When she was placed in the care of Zakariyya AS he noticed that she used to eat fruits that were not in season. Upon enquiry, she told him that it was from Allah who sustains whomsoever He wills without any restrictions.

This Surah mentions the miraculous birth of Isa AS from Maryam Radhiallahu anha without a father. As an infant in his cradle, Isa AS spoke to the people and attested to his miraculous birth.This was just one of his many miracles that are mentioned in this Surah.

Allah assures people that Isa AS was neither killed nor crucified, but that he was lifted alive to the heavens. Rasulullah SAW has informed us that Isa AS shall return to this world just before Qiyamah to slay Dajjal. He will then pass away naturally. However, the Christians adamantly believe that he was crucified.

The third juz ends with an implication that no disbeliever shall never avoid any torment of Allah even if he ransoms himself with an earths fill of gold it would be of no use. Neither any intercesssion nor compensation will save him from the torment of fire.
