With the name of Allah, the Impartial, the Compassionate.
‘Ali-Imran’ means ‘Imran’s family’. This Surath got Its name from verse 33 which mentions ‘Imran’s family’. This Surath contains verses that explain the Battle of Badr and Battle of Uhud taken place in the second and third years of Hijra. It also contains some verses mentioning the conversation of Christian delegates from Najran with Messenger Muhammad in the ninth year of Hijra at Medina. After explaining the life history of Maryam, Jesus (the son of Maryam), Zakaria, Yahiya, etc. this Surath invites the Children of Israel during Messenger’s period to the true way of life of their forefathers. During the revelation of this Surath, the people of the Book were the Jews and Christians, but today as Adhikr is codified, the people of the Book are the Arabic Quran reading Fujjar and believers. This Surath teaches that the Battle of Uhud’ was made to separate the believers and hypocrites among the followers of Messenger. Islam is the only way of life that the Creator Lord has satisfied for the entire creatures from the first man Adam to the Last Day. This Surath also teaches that no one, even the Messenger can make anyone a believer.
