    Benefits Related to our Last Tafseer Lesson, by Abu Hakeem Bilal Davis (hafidhahullaah)

    Allaah, The Most High, said: Oh Children of Israa`eel remember the blessings I bestowed upon you... (Suratul Baqarah, ayah 40)

    Imaam Ibn Katheer mentioned (1/151) with a chain of narration going back to Ibn 'Abbaas that: "(The name) Israa`eel is like your statement 'Abdullaah.'

    Imaam 'Abd Ibn Humaid mentioned with a chain of narration going back to Ibn Mas'ood who said: "Ilyaas is (another name for) Idrees, and Ya'qoob is Israa`eel."

    Allaah, The Most High, said: And fear none but Me. (ayah 40)

    Ibn 'Abbaas said: "Lest there come upon you that which befell your forefathers of Allaah's wrath and retribution, mutation being from that (Allaah transformed some of them into Pigs and Monkeys as a punishment upon them)."

    Allaah, The Most High, mentioned: And believe in what I have sent down (This Qur`aan) confirming that which is with you, and be not the first to disbelieve therein... (Suratul Baqarah, ayah 41)

    Imaam At-Tirmidhi mentioned his chain of narration going back to Ibn 'Abbaas who said: "The Jews came to the Messenger of Allaah, and they said: 'Oh Abal Qaassim! Inform us about thunder - what is it? He replied: An Angel from the angels who is responsible for the clouds. He has with him bolts of fire that he drives the clouds with wherever he wills. So they said: 'So what is this noise we hear (i.e. thunder)?' He replied: It is him rebuking them as he drives them, so as to cause them to arrive at the goal he intends (for them) (in a variant version it mentions that his response was: It is his voice). So they responded: 'You have spoken the truth!'

    So they asked him: 'Then inform us what it was that Israa`eel made prohibited upon himself? (a reference to the statement of Allaah, The Most High: All food was lawful for the children of Israa`eel other than what Israa`eel made unlawful for himself before the Taurah was revealed. (Surah Aali Imraan, ayah 93).

    He responded: He was suffering from sciatica, and there was nothing he could find reponsible for it other than him consuming camels meat and camel's milk. For this reason he made it prohibited upon himself. They said: 'You have spoken the truth!'" (Collected by Imaamut Tirmidhi in his 'Sunan,' and declared Saheeh in 'Saheeh Sunanit Tirmidhi (2492))

    Indicating that which the Jews were upon from rejection of the truth.

    (As a side benefit, in this hadeeth is evidence that the Prophets understood that some bodily ailments are diet-related).

    Allaah, The Most High, stated: ..And do not be the first to disbelieve therein. (Baqarah, ayah 41)

    Ibn 'Abbaas Radiallaahu 'anhumma - mentioned: "While you possess of knowledge that which others do not."

    Allaah, The Most High, said: And mix not truth with falsehood... (Baqarah, ayah 42)

    Qatadah rahimahullaah said: "Do not mix Judaism and Christianity with Islaam, for indeed the religion of Allaah is Islaam, while Judaism and Christianity are Innovations and not from Allaah."

    Waallaahu Ta'alaa a'lam.
    Subhanak Allaahuma wa bihamdika ash-hadu anlaa illaaha illa anta astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk

    If I said anything correct, then it is from Allaah (subhanahu wa taa'ala), and if I erred, then that is from me and shaytan.
