Summary of Quran Chapter 3 Surah Al Imran The Children of

Imran is the name of the father of Hazrat Maryam (Mary, may
Allah be pleased with her), and Aal-e-Imran means “the family of
Imran”. Most of the surahs were revealed at a time when Muslims had
migrated from Makkah to Madinah, but here too they faced many difficulties at
the hands of infidels. An extraordinary victory was granted, and the chiefs of
the infidel Quraysh were killed. To avenge this defeat, they attacked Medina
the following year, and the Battle of Uhud took place, in which the Muslims had
to take a temporary retreat. These two battles are mentioned in this surah, and
valuable instructions have been given on issues related to them.

There were large numbers of Jews living in and around
Medina. In Surah Al-Baqarah, their beliefs and deeds have been mentioned in
great detail, and the context of Christians was also mentioned. The real hint
in Surah Al-Imran is towards Christians, and Jews are also mentioned.

Christians lived in large numbers in the Najran Region of
Arabia, a delegation of which came to the Holy Prophet. The first half of Surah
Al-Imran is devoted to answering their arguments and stating the status of
Jesus Christ. Also, in this surah, rules regarding zakat, usury, and jihad are
given, and at the end of the surah, it is invited that one should believe in
the oneness of Allah Almighty by considering the signs of God, the power spread
in this universe, and one should pray Allah for every need.

Surah Al-Imran was revealed in the immediate aftermath of
the Battle of Badr and part of it was revealed after the Battle of Uhud. Its
subject matter is the same, that is, the affirmation of the Prophethood and the
principles of the religion and in it also the address to the People of the
Book. But there is a slight difference that in Baqara the address is mostly
from Jews and in Al-Imran the address is from Christians. And further on, an
important point is that faith is mentioned in Surah Al-Baqarah and Islam is
mentioned in Surah Al-Imran.

Faith is the name of belief and Islam is the name of its
practical implementation and further obedience. If you believe this, then act
accordingly and not only in individual life but also in collective life. You
believe in monotheism and prophethood and so and so, you believe in the Qur’an,
now bring all these teachings into practical life and bring them into
collective life. Enter the government of Allah. Implement the system and law
given by religion. All this we find in Aal-e-Imran.

Manners of dealing with Jews, Christians, and other
non-Muslims have been taught in Surah Al-Imran. From this point of view, Surah
Al-Baqarah is the beginning and Surah Al-Imran is its completion. If Surah
Al-Baqarah is concise, then Surah Al-Imran is its description and Surah
Al-Baqarah is summarizing the results of Badr and Surah Al-Imran is commenting
on the battle of Uhud. 

There were some mistakes made by the Muslims in the
battle of Uhud. They are being given full moral training for their remediation,
and everything is being told without exception, that they were not meant to do
this. In this way, complete education and training are being imparted. It also
talks of an agreement with the Jews, and we see that the Banu Nadir and the
Banu Qinqa’a are expelled in this age. The battle of Uhud (mountain in the city
of Madinah, Saudi Arabia) is the action of the hypocrites. There is a statement
about it and it is mentioned in the training of Muslims as a whole.

What are the Commandments and Unclear Verses of the Quran:

Explanation of the commandments and unclear verses?

In Surah Al-Imran there is a subject of commandments and suspicions
verses, that the verses of Allah are of two kinds: one is the commandments, the
most definite and straightforward thing that everyone can understand, like two
plus two, equals four. This is Tawheed, “Say Allah is One”. These are
the commandments. Some verses are suspicious (not entirely clear). Suspicions
are verses that are discussed in a way that is a little suspicious and

There are some things that we don’t see and that is supernatural.
For example, the existence of Allah, the existence of angels, the Hereafter,
Paradise, Hell. We don’t see all these things commonly. Allah Almighty has told
us about them. Now to some extent, the idea has settled in our minds that
heaven will be like this, hell will be like this or it has been said that the
throne of Allah is spread over this heaven and earth, then such an idea is
formed if this idea is like this accept as much as Allah has given, then it
will be better if you start doing it more and do not consider what Allah has
told you as sufficient, submitting your ideas further. 

If you start rhetoric on
your own, then you will end up in a valley of doubts and suspicions, where one
issue will not be resolved but a hundred more issues will arise. That’s said,
“There are two kinds of verses, and those who are correct, then they are
satisfied with what Allah has revealed.” And those who think more than
that, on the one hand, get upset themselves and put temptation on other people
as well. And try to find things that are in the knowledge of Allah alone. 

is the field of suspension, which is the cause of sectarianism and the basis of
all sects. Imagination and ideas in your heart about the Holy Prophet. These
are all uncertainties. The point is, just accept what is written and that’s it.

Strong is the thing that is firm and solid. “verses
of commandments” means those verses, the language of which is very clear,
there is no room for error in determining their meaning, the words of which
indicate the meaning and subject matter. These verses are the basis of the
book, the purpose for which the Qur’an was revealed. 

These verses fulfill this
purpose. In these verses, the world has been invited to Islam, in the words of
advice and admonition have been given, in them, the denial of errors and
guidance has been explained. In them, the basic principles of religion have
been explained. They contain beliefs, acts of worship, morals, duties, rules of
command, and prohibition. 

Therefore, the verses of commandments are the main
source for satisfying the thirst of the person who seeks the truth and wants to
turn to the Qur’an to know which path he should follow and which path he should
not follow, and he will continue to take advantage of them.

The chapters of the Qur’an are quite long. This is their summary. These
