CHAPTER 2

Little ‘Isa [a] grew up to be quite unique. Not only was he the most handsome, kind and truthful, but of all the children, nay all the people, he was indeed the most thoughtful.

Everyone who saw little ‘Isa [a] immediately loved him. Everyone who knew the lovely child came to admire him.

And as the wonderful child grew , so more wonderful indeed did his good qualities too, the qualities that all the people of Nazareth, so well now knew.

Now, the Banu Isra’il, the ancestors of the Jews, had once believed in Allah’s Prophets and Messengers, and there had been many Prophets among them. They had guidance and revelation from Allah, and books filled with goodness.

But because they mixed with idol worshipping people, and loved to imitate their ways, they had become just like them, and the teachings of Allah’s Prophets they had all but cast away.

They also mixed true belief with falsehood, and their hearts had become hard. They were no longer kind nor generous to the poor. They were proud and hated all other people, they were humble towards the strong and cruel to the weak and feeble.

They made lawful what Allah had made unlawful, and unlawful what Allah had made lawful. The Books of Allah had become like a toy, and His religion, to them, a game.
