Eli's sons were Hophi and Phinehas. They were worthless men. They had no regard for the Lord and they treated the offerings and sacrifices people brought for God with contempt. The practice was that when any man offered sacrifice, the priest's servants would come while the meat was boiling, with a three prolonged fork in his hand, he would thrust into the pan or kettle or pot, all that the fork brought up, the priest would take for himself.
Their sins were very great in the sight of God which brought about some negative effects on Israel which includes:
(i) There was a war between Israel and the Philistines, the two sins of Eli died on the same day.
(ii) The art of God was taken away from Israel.
(iii) Eli was unable to see vision because of the defect.
(iv) Eli could not hear or even see.
(v) Eli collapsed falling from his seat in such a way that he break his neck and died on the same day as his two sons.
(vi) The wife of Phineas who was pregnant upon receiving the news concerning the defect of Israel gave birth to a premature son, named "Ichabod" meaning the glory of God has departed from Israel.
(i) As parents having the biblical responsibility to train our children in the fear of God and man.

Greed was demonstrated in Gehazi's life when he went out to take the gift that Neman came to present to Prophet Elisha for curing him of Leprosy. In this biblical passage, after Elisha has refused to accept these gifts Gehazi ran chasing Neman for the present and gifts which prophet Elisha declined to accept. Due to the greed nature of Gehazi, he went and lied to Neman that his master, Prophet Elisha has received some guests and would need the gifts from Neman to serve these guests. Since it was a lie Gehazi told Neman, the prophet Elisha cursed Gehazi hence Gehazi was infested with the Leprosy of Neman.
Pilate called together the leading priests and other religious leaders, along with the people, and he announced his verdict. He told the that they brought Jesus man to him, accusing him of leading a revolt. But that he has examined him thoroughly on their point in their presence and find him innocent. He said that there was nothing He has done that calls for the death penalty. He told them that he will have him flogged, and then will release him. Then a mighty roar rose from the crowd, and with one voice they shouted, “Kill him, and release Barabbas to us! (Barabbas was in prison for taking part in an insurrection in Jerusalem against the government, and for murder.) Pilate argued with them, because he wanted to release Jesus. But they kept shouting, “Crucify him! Crucify him!” For the third time he demanded, he asked them why and What crime he has committed. That he has found no reason to sentence him to death.
But the mob shouted louder and louder, demanding that Jesus be crucified, and their voices prevailed. So Pilate sentenced Jesus to die as they demanded. As they had requested, he released Barabbas, the man in prison for insurrection and murder. But he turned Jesus over to them to do as they wished.

James makes it clear that those who trust God don't merely become experts at listening to God's Word. It means you may read the word of God, but if you don't practice it, you will loose all the wisdom and blessing God has in store for you. Therefor do not deceive yourself into thinking that reading alone is all it takes. To believe is to act on what we hear. Faith in Christ is not just the map; it's the actual journey. Merely nodding our heads at the Word is not enough. We need to do what the Word tells us to do. We need to figure out which way God wants us to go, and then actually go that way. He went on to say that one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.
If we don't, we demonstrate that we don't truly trust the Father, at least not in that moment.

Abu Huraira (may God be pleased with him) narrated that once a Muslim and a Jew quarreled and the Muslim said: “By He Who gave superiority to Muhammad over all the people!” The Jew said, “By He Who gave superiority to Moses over all the people!’ Upon this, the Muslim lifted his hand to slap the Jew. The Jew went to the Messenger of God (peace and blessings be upon him) and informed him of all that had happened between him and the Muslim. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “Do not give me superiority over Moses, for the people will fall unconscious on the Day of Resurrection and I will be one of them, but I will be the first to regain consciousness and will see Moses standing and holding the side of the Throne. I will not know whether he was one of those who have fallen unconscious and then regained consciousness before me, or if he was one of those exempted by God (from falling unconscious).” This reports says a lot about the kind of peaceful life Muslims and Jews enjoyed in Medina at the time.
This study discusses and examines the historical development of tafsir since the early Islam of the seventh century down to the time of Ibn Kathir in the 13th century. Between these periods, the study of tafsir gradually gained in vitality when the people of Mecca, initially the Prophet’s companions, began to devote their lives to the study of the Quran, memorizing the text word for word to arrive at a clear understanding of its meaning and implication.
Further discussion will concern the role played by scholars of the 13th century including Ibn Kathir in the progress of tafsir. These men produced a great variety of books as an indication of their enthusiasm in this field. Using content analysis technique of secondary data and a descriptive approach, the development of the science of tafsir or Quranic commentaries since the Prophet’s time down to Ibn Kathir’s era are analysed and described objectively and systematically. The study has revealed a large number of attempts have been made by Muslim scholars to interpret the Quran in order to fulfil the needs of individuals and Muslim society in general.
However, guidance and basic principles handed down by Prophet and his companions must still be observed for the correct interpretation of the Quran.
- did he not find you an orphan and protect ( you )
- did he not find you wandering and direct ( you ) .
- did he not find you destitute and enrich ( you ) .
- therefore , the orphan oppresses not.
- he brought him up and prepared him for the divine message to mankind .
- he was an orphan but his lord protected him
- he was wandering with Allah 's guidance found the proper way of truth .
- he never prostrated himself to any idols as others did
Tawhid Arabic "oneness [of God]" also romanized as tawheed, touheed, or tevhid is the indivisible oneness concept of monotheism in Islam.
Tawhid is the religion's central and single-most important concept, upon which a Muslim's entire faith rests. It unequivocally holds that God is One Al-ʾAḥad and Single (Al-Wāḥid); therefore, the Islamic belief in God is considered Unitarian
While Associating others with God is known as shirk and is the antithesis of Tawhid. It is usually but not always in the form of the will of AL quran
Lady Aisha, the Prophet’s wife narrated that the Messenger of God (peace and blessings be upon him) died while his (iron) armor was mortgaged to a Jew for thirty pounds of barley. The Jew who was a wheat trader, did not mind giving barley to the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) nor did the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) mind mortgaging his armor to the Jew.
All the aforementioned instances narrated from the Sunnah of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) clearly demonstrate that Jews lived as individuals and groups in Medina through its second phase. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) allowed the Jews of Khaybar, the biggest Jewish community, to stay and share in the development of Medina. They were left to cultivate their lands and live peacefully among Muslims.
