Preference of Allah to the Children of Israel and their dispute thereafter Print E-mail

Allah the Exalted mentions the favors He granted the Children of Israel, such as revealing the Divine Books to them, sending the Messengers to them and granting them kingship. Allah said,

﴿وَلَقَدْ ءَاتَيْنَا بَنِى إِسْرَءِيلَ الْكِتَـبَ وَالْحُكْمَ وَالنُّبُوَّةَ وَرَزَقْنَـهُمْ مِّنَ الطَّيِّبَـتِ﴾

(And indeed We gave the Children of Israel the Scripture, and the understanding of the Scripture and its laws, and the prophethood; and provided them with good things,) such as foods and drinks,

﴿وَفَضَّلْنَـهُمْ عَلَى الْعَـلَمينَ﴾

(and preferred them above the nations.) of their time,

﴿وَءاتَيْنَـهُم بَيِّنَـتٍ مِّنَ الاٌّمْرِ﴾

(And gave them clear proofs in matters.) `We gave them evidences, proofs and unequivocal signs.' Therefore, the proof has been established against them, yet they differed among themselves after the proof came to them, out of transgression against each other,

﴿إِنَّ رَبَّكَ﴾

(Verily, your Lord) `O Muhammad',

﴿يَقْضِى بَيْنَهُمْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَـمَةِ فِيمَا كَانُواْ فِيهِ يَخْتَلِفُونَ﴾

(will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection about that wherein they used to differ. ) He will judge between them by His just judgement.
