The fact that the context of this assertion is the sonship attributed by the Christians to the Messiah (al-masī ), is likely signiﬁcant. The preceding verse (q 9:29) calls on the believers to ﬁght against those “who do not believe in God or in the last day… of those who have been given the book” (min alladhīna ūtū l-kitāb). Following immediately is the verse 39 people of the book about the polytheistic doctrines of the Jews and the Christians. It is clear ﬁrst, that the Prophet is absolutely sure about the issue of Uzayr and second, that this passage does not speak about a difference of doctrine between the two communities but about the difference in the appellation that each one of them used for the son of God.
This is evident in Abraham’s assertion of a pedagogic posture toward his own father. In that case, Abraham leaves home as he asks God to forgive his idol-worshipping father (q 19:41-7; cf. 14:41; see zar). ) and disowning his father (q 9:114). ), which culminates in a complicated image of the prophet raising his parents to the throne while they simultaneously prostrate themselves in front of their young son (q 12:100; see bowing and prostration). afﬁrms as a logical precept that an appropriate concept of a high God means that God could not possibly be apprehended in terms of human relations.
The analysis of the contexts related to jihād shows that all the basic aspects of the concept of “holy war” had already been laid down in the earlier qur ānic passages (see also fighting; war). The frequency of the above-mentioned terms varies greatly — sabīl, 176 occurrences; irā , forty-ﬁve; arīq (or arīqa), nine; minhāj, once — but, as a rule, they are treated as synonyms by the Arabic lexicographers and commentators who explain the meaning of any given one of these terms through another. The only term that expresses virtually nothing but the notion 28 of “the way of God” is irā (the sole exception being q 7:86), while only ﬁve occurrences of arīq are related to the notion in question (see q 4:168, 169; 46:30; 72:16, al- arīqa).
