First Speech Of Sayyedna Isa

logomaqbooliya

When Sayyidatuna Maryam returned to her village of Bani Israel with Sayyiduna ‘Isa in her lap, the people blamed her of fornication saying, ‘O Maryam! You have committed a very shameful act. There was no immorality in your parents’ character and neither was your mother an adulteress. So how have you given birth to a child without a husband?’ When the people crossed the limits of badmouthing Sayyidatuna Maryam  remained silent but asked people to ask everything from the child. The people said, ‘What! Why and how can we converse with this child? He is still a baby in the cradle’. Upon hearing these comments from the people, Sayyiduna ‘Isa started his speech which has been related by Allah  in the Holy Quran in the following words:
The child (‘Isa) said, ‘I am Allah’s bondsman, He has gi,ven me the Book and made me a conveyer of the unseen news (a Prophet). And He has made me blessedi wherever I may be, and ordained upon me Salah and Zakah, for as long as I live. And (He has made me) dutiful to my mother and has not made me hostile, unfortunate. And that peace (same as Yahya) be upon me the day I was born, and on the day I shall pass away, and on the day I will be raised alive.’
[Kanz-ul-Iman (Translation of Quran)] (Part 161 Surah Maryam, Ayah 30-33)

Moral:

1. This is a miracle of Sayyiduna ‘Isa  that just after his birth, he  delivered such a comprehensive speech. In this speech, first of all, he declared himself a bondman of Allah so that no one may call him god or the son of god as people were going to blame him so in the times to come. And this false accusation was in fact an accusation against Allah- Therefore, it was the natural aspect of his Prophethood to firstly dismiss the false accusation that was going to be made towards Allah before dismissing the blame on his mother.
Allah is the Most Majestic and Magnificent. Whosoever He blesses with Prophethood, certainly his birth is pure and the majestic signs of his Prophethood are made well apparent since his birth.
2. In this part of Surah Maryam, Allah  has comprehensively mentioned the Milad [birth] of Sayyiduna ‘Isa and in the end, there is the mention of Salam. From this, we have come to know that celebrating the birth of the Beloved and Blessed Rasool  and reciting Salat-o-Salam in the end is the Sunnah [tradition] of Allah and same is the tradition of the Ahl-us-Sunnah wa-Jama’at.
3. We have also come to know from the abovementioned speech of Sayyiduna ‘Isa that Salah, Zakah and kind conduct towards parents are such obligations that were also obligatory in the Shari’ ah of Sayyiduna ‘Isa .
