Tarjumatul Quran - Surah al-Zukhruf [The Gold Ornaments]: 34 - 68
In these verses Almighty God states that had all people been one nation then We would have fashioned the roofs of the houses of those who deny the Beneficent God and their stairs and the cushions upon which they lean from silver and they would have lived lives of luxury and comfort. Here Almighty God mentions silver and not Gold. This is because gold is such a rare element that it cannot be so put to such common use. In the verses following 42 Almighty God assures the Holy Prophet ﷺ that He would certainly avenge his enemies within his lifetime or after his passing and that the victories would certainly be granted to him. Now from verse Number 62 begin the Prophecies pertaining to the era of the Muhammad Messiah. That is that Jesus would be a Sign of the لسَّاعَةِ ['the Hour']. The word سَّاعَةِ ٱلْ literally translated as ‘the Hour’ should be understood in the light of the same expression used in ‘The Hour draws near and the moon is split apart.'* There the revolutionary changes which were destined to be brought about by the advent of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) are refers to as .سَّاعَةِ ٱلْ And the splitting of the moon is presented as evidence in favour of the spiritual revolution which was about to take place. The connotation of this term as applied to Jesus in the verse under study should be understood on the same lines. Hence ‘the House’ refers to the advent of Jesus in the latter days and the spiritual revolution attendant upon it. All the scholars agree that he would be the Jesus of the Muhammad Ummah and that he would be the Sign of a great spiritual revolution. Also that he would be from among my adherents. That the first thing he would say would be جِئْتُكُم بِٱلْحِكْمَةِ ['I bring you wisdom'] meaning that 'I come as a حكم ['judge']. Secondly وَلِأُبَيِّنَ لَكُم بَعْضَ ٱلَّذِى تَخْتَلِفُونَ فِيهِ ['and to make manifest to you some of that about which you differ'] meaning that 'I have been sent to judge fairly and remove the difference regarding your disputes. His making this claim would not at all go against the Finality of the Holy Prophet ﷺ. The painful end of the opponents of the Muhammad Messiah is reported in verses 66 - 68. The word بَغْتَةًۭ ['suddenly'] is also used several times in the writings of the Promised Messiah (peace be upon him). * 'The Holy Quran'. al-Qamar [The Moon]: 2. 17 June 1998. © The Tahir Archive / MTA International, 2016.
