Syed Sadaat Shareef Kaun Hai???

Ayat-e-Mubahila (Sura: 3 – aal-`Imraan (The Family of `Imraan) Ayat: 61)

[YOUSAF ALI] If any one disputes in this matter with thee, now after (full) knowledge Hath come to thee, say: “Come! let us gather together,- our sons and your sons, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves: Then let us earnestly pray, and invoke the curse of Allah on those who lie!”

[ PICKTHAL ] And whoso disputeth with thee concerning him, after the knowledge which hath come unto thee, say (unto him): Come! We will summon our sons and your sons, and our women and your women, and ourselves and yourselves, then we will pray humbly (to our Lord) and (solemnly) invoke the curse of Allah upon those who lie.

[ SHAKIR ] But whoever disputes with you in this matter after what has come to you of knowledge, then say: Come let us call our sons and your sons and our women and your women and our near people and your near people, then let us be earnest in prayer, and pray for the curse of Allah on the liars.

[ REMARKS : Ayat-e-Mubahila. Challenge to the Christians of Najran. Prophet(sawaw) asked to take his Sons, Women and Nafoos with him to the Mubahila ]

61 And to whomsoever disputes with thee over it, after the knowledge that has come unto thee, say, “Come! Let us call
upon our sons and your sons, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves. Then let us pray earnestly, so as to
place the curse of God upon those who lie.”
61 There are varying accounts of the details of the encounter, but the elements common to the story are that when the
Christians refused to embrace Islam and continued to hold to their beliefs about Jesus, they were challenged to place the
curse of God upon those who lie, and the two sides agreed to meet the next day. Upon retiring, the Christians consulted
among themselves and concluded that, since they wished to remain Christian, no further good could come from entering
into this challenge; either they feared the curse of God upon themselves if Muhammad was in fact a true prophet or that
they feared Muhammad politically and did not desire to become his political enemy. According to some reports, the
Prophet came out the next day with his daughter Fāṭ imah and her two sons, Ḥ asan and Ḥ usayn; other accounts also
include ʿ Alī, Fāṭ imah’s husband and the Prophet’s cousin, as the verse says the disputants’ sons and women were part
of the challenge (IK, R, Ṭ ). Rather than enter into this challenge, the Christians declined and, according to some versions,
said, “We seek refuge in God!” (IK). Then the Prophet and the Najrān delegation came to an agreement that the Najrānīs
would become a treaty-holding people (dhimmī ), remaining Christian and running their own affairs, but paying a yearly
indemnity (jizyah; see 9:29) to the Muslim community. They requested that the Prophet send back with them a
trustworthy Companion, which the Prophet did, according to one account in order that he might act as a kind of arbiter
among them regarding some preexisting financial issues. For Ibn Kathīr this incident took place in 9/631, since the
Najrānīs were the first to pay jizyah, and the jizyah was imposed after the conquest of Makkah; but this chronology
depends on the various and sometimes conflicting reports regarding the circumstances under which the Najrānīs came to
Madinah, what transpired while they were there, and the agreement that was reached before they left.

Tafseer Jalalain [3:61]
And whoever, from among the Christians, disputes with you concerning him, after the knowledge, of his
affair, that has come to you, say, to them: ‘Come! Let us call our sons and your sons, our wives and your
wives, our selves and your selves, and gather them together, then let us humbly pray and invoke God’s
curse upon those who lie’, by saying: ‘Lord, curse the one that tells lies concerning the affair of Jesus’. The
Prophet (s) had called upon the Najrān delegation to do this when they disputed with him about Jesus. They
said, ‘Let us think about it and we will come back to you’. The judicious one among them said, ‘You know
that he is a prophet, and that every people that has ever challenged a prophet to a mutual imprecation has
been destroyed’. They left him and departed. When they went to see the Prophet (s), who had set out with
al-Hasan, al-Husayn, Fātima and ‘Alī, he said to them [the Najrān delegation], ‘When I supplicate, you say
‘Amen’; but they refrained from this mutual imprecation and made peace with the Prophet on the condition
that they pay the jizya, as reported by Abū Nu‘aym. According to Ibn ‘Abbās [the Prophet] said, ‘Had they
set out and performed the mutual cursing, they would have gone home and found neither possessions nor
family’. It is also reported that had they set out with this intention, they would have been consumed by fire.
