Commentary

Baniii-‘Israaa-‘Iil  – (the Children of Israel), Israel was the surname of Prophet Jacob (Peace be upon Him), who was son of Prophet Isaac (Peace be upon Him) and grandson of Prophet Abraham (Peace be upon Him). This word is of Hebrew language. And it means “the servant of God. These people are also called “the Jews”.

Ni’-matii - (My favor), it aims those favors and blessings of Allah Almighty, which He had bestowed on the Jews, for example; He caused to set them free from the torment of the slavery, drowned their enemy pharaoh, made their way to cross the red sea, provided them food in the desert like “Mann-o- Salwaa” the delicious food without any hard work and labor, and helped them Unseen in calamities etc.

‘Ahdiii  - My (part of the) covenant.  Covenant is a promise between two parties. Here covenant means the promise which servants (Human beings) made with their Creator (Allah) before coming in this world. As, Allah Almighty bestowed wisdom and sense to humankind, granted power to consider about Signs of His Omnipotence and then the human beings accepted responsibility that they will recognize their Creator, will believe in the Prophets (Peace be upon them) sent by God Almighty and will follow the Guidance of Allah Almighty. In return, Allah Almighty promised that the believers will be sent to the Paradise.

Farhabuun – {you should (fear Me,) observe your duty} it means that you should not fear any other than Allah Almighty.

Allah Almighty promised with Adam (Peace be upon Him) after his birth and sending him on earth that He will send his Prophets (Peace be upon them) for his children according to the occasions and will convey His own Guidance and Instructions by means of Them (Peace be upon them) to His servants. Prophets (peace be upon them) came according to this covenant. Messenger Muhammad (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) was sent as the last Messenger of all. The religion, which was bestowed to Him, is a universal religion. So, the series of the teachings of the Religion - Islam begins from this Section.

The Jews were aware of the religion of God Almighty, therefore they are being addressed particularly first of all. And they are being reminded that: your ancestors have seen the blessings of God’s religion and you know about it very well. Now you should believe in this last Prophet (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam), so that you may deserve the same blessings again. If you will do so, then it will be considered that you have fulfilled your covenant and in return, Allah will fulfill His covenant: Your sins will be forgiven and you will be bestowed with success in this world and on the Day of Resurrection.
