Versus From The Quran-Salah:2

The Commandments

Surah Al-Baqarah (2:83, 2:110) outline some of the commandments and covenants that were given to the Children of Israel. Let's break down the key points:

  • Covenant with the Children of Israel:
    • [2:83] "We made a covenant with the Children of Israel..."
    • The covenant emphasizes monotheism, instructing the Children of Israel to worship only Allah.
  • Moral and Ethical Conduct:
    • [2:83] "...You shall honor your parents and regard the relatives, the orphans, and the poor."
    • This part of the covenant underscores the importance of moral and ethical conduct. It instructs them to honor their parents and show kindness and support to relatives, orphans, and the poor.
  • Amicable Treatment of People:
    • [2:83] "You shall treat the people amicably."
    • The commandment emphasizes treating people with kindness and fairness. It encourages a harmonious and respectful interaction with others.
  • Observance of Salah and Zakat:
    • [2:83] "You shall observe the Prayers (Salah) and give the obligatory charity (Zakat)."
    • These pillars of Islam—Salah and Zakat—are emphasized as part of the covenant. They serve as integral acts of worship and charity, fostering spiritual and social responsibility.
  • Outcome of Good Deeds:
    • [2:110] "Any good you send forth on behalf of your souls, you will find it at GOD."
    • The verse highlights that any good deeds and charity done for the sake of Allah will be acknowledged by Him. It underscores the concept of divine reward for righteous actions.

These commandments align with the broader principles of monotheism, moral conduct, and social responsibility emphasized in Islam. They indicate that these principles have been consistent throughout various revelations. Observing Salah and giving Zakat are mentioned as essential components of faith and practice, contributing to both individual spiritual growth and societal welfare.
