This summary of the third TarawÃ®h commences at verse 18 of SÃ»rah Ã‚l Imran and concludes at the end of SÃ»rah Ã‚l ImrÃ¢n.
AllÃ¢h speaks of Hadhrat ÃŽsa Alayhis SalÃ¢m and his mother Hadhrat Maryam RadiallÃ¢hu anha. When she was placed in the care of Hadhrat Zakariyya Alayhis SalÃ¢m he noticed that she used to eat fruits that were not in season. Upon enquiry, she told him that it was from AllÃ¢h who sustains whomsoever He wills without any restrictions. This SÃ»rah mentions the miraculous birth of Hadhrat ÃŽsa Alayhis SalÃ¢m from Hadhrat Maryam RadiallÃ¢hu anha without a father. As an infant in his cradle, Hadhrat ÃŽsa spoke to the people and attested to his miraculous birth. This was just one of his many miracles that are mentioned in this SÃ»rah. AllÃ¢h assures people that Hadhrat ÃŽsa Alayhis SalÃ¢m was neither killed nor crucified, but that he was lifted alive to the heavens.
RasulullÃ¢h SallallÃ¢hu â€˜alayhi wasallam has informed us that Hadhrat ÃŽsa Alayhis SalÃ¢m shall return to this world just before QiyÃ¢mah to slay DajjÃ¢l. He will then pass away naturally. However, the Christians adamantly believe that he was crucified.
The Christians were just as opposed to IslÃ¢m as the Jews were. Therefore, AllÃ¢h instructed RasulullÃ¢h SallallÃ¢hu â€˜alayhi wasallam to issue a challenge of MubÃ¢hala to them. The term MubÃ¢hala is a challenge between two opposing factions where each gathers his family members and they collectively invoke AllÃ¢hâ€™s punishment on the opposite faction saying, â€œO AllÃ¢h! Curse the party of us that is false and lying.â€ However, the group of Christians whom RasulullÃ¢h SallallÃ¢hu â€˜alayhi wasallam challenged shrank in fear from the challenge.
This part of SÃ»rah Ã‚l ImrÃ¢n discusses both the Battle of Badr as well as the Battle of Uhud. During the Battle of Badr the Muslims were only 313 in number and did not even have sufficient arms to fight with. On the other hand, the MushrikÃ®n were over a thousand and were armed to the teeth. However, AllÃ¢h sent thousands of angels to assist the Muslim army and they convincingly vanquished the enemy. This battle was the first battle that the Muslims fought.
