Prophet Uzair alaihissalam was a pious and God-fearing. Uzair alaihissalam is talked about int the Holy Quran in Surah Tawbah through which it’s mentioned that Jews honoured him as “the son of ALLAH SWT”.
The Jews say, “Ezra is the son of Allah,” whereas the Christians say, “The Messiah is the son of Allah.” Such is their baseless assertions, solely parroting the phrases of earlier disbelievers. May Allah condemn them! How can they be deluded ˹from the reality? (Quran 9:30)
Prophet Uzair was a agency believer in ALLAH SWT and the guide Taurat.
It is reported by Ibn Kathir that Uzair alaihissalam lived between the occasions of Prophet Sulaiman alaihissalam and Prophet Zakariah alaihissalam. He reminded the folks of Israel in regards to the forgotten legal guidelines of ALLAH SWT and taught them the teachings of Taurat.
Prophet Uzair alaihissalam can be recognized as the person who slept for hundred years and received life after loss of life.
One day, Uzair alaihissalam visited a city and noticed that it was fully ruined and deserted the place all of the inhabitants had been killed. He questioned: “Oh! How will Allah ever bring it to life after its death?” Uzair didn’t doubt Allah’s powers nevertheless he was thrilled of how resurrection can be affected in actual.
He then dismounted his donkey and took shelter in a cave, bringing with him some dried bread and a few contemporary grapes which he then crushed to get some juice. He soaked the bread into the juice to melt it, as was the customary manner of consuming the bread throughout these days, after which fell asleep.
ALLAH SWT made Him lifeless or sleep for 100 years within the cave.
After passing a decade, Prophet Uzair alaihissalam was introduced again to life by ALLAH SWT to make him perceive how can HE carry every part again to life after loss of life.
This incident is talked about within the Holy Quran in Surah Al-Baqarah 2:259
Are you not conscious of the one who handed by a metropolis which was in ruins? He questioned, “How could Allah bring this back to life after its destruction?” So Allah triggered him to die for 100 years then introduced him again to life. Allah requested, “How long have you remained in this state?” He replied, “Perhaps a day or part of a day.” Allah mentioned, “No! You have remained here for a hundred years! Just look at your food and drink they have not spoiled. But now look at the remains of your donkey! And so We have made you into a sign for humanity. And look at the bones of the donkey, how We bring them together then clothe them with flesh!” When this was made clear to him, he declared, “˹Now I know that Allah is Most Capable of everything.”(Quran 2:259)
Prophet Uzair then rode his donkey again and entered his native place, nevertheless, no person acknowledged him, nor did his family, besides the maid, who was now an previous girl. He then requested her: “Is this the house of Ezra?” She replied: “Yes, but the people have long forgotten Ezra.” He mentioned: “I am Ezra, Allah had taken my life for one hundred years and has now returned it to me.” She mentioned: “Ezra used to be answered when he prayed to Allah. Pray to cure me of blindness if you are Ezra.” He prayed for her and massaged her eyes and took her by the hand. “Get up by the power of Allah,” he mentioned. The crippled girl stood up and walked; she opened her eyes and noticed; her blindness was gone. She mentioned: “I bear witness that you are Ezra.”
The previous girl then ran to the folks. Ezra’s son was 100 eighteen years previous now, and his kids ‘s kids now had been lords of the meeting. She known as out to them saying: “This is Ezra come to you.” But they accused her of mendacity. She mentioned: “I am your old maid. He has just prayed to Allah for me, and here I am, walking and seeing.” The folks stood up and checked out him. His son mentioned: “My father had a mark between his shoulders, a black mole,” they usually found it. They mentioned: “None among us memorized the Torah since Nebuchadnezzar burned it, except Ezra; and there was only one copy of the Torah, which was hidden by Sarukha. He buried it in the days of Nebuchadnezzar in a place none but Ezra knows.” Ezra led the folks to the hidden place and took out that duplicate of the Torah. Its leaves had been rotted, and the guide itself crumpled. Ezra sat below the shade of a tree surrounded by the youngsters of Israel and copied out the Torah for them from that script. Henceforth, the Jews mentioned that Ezra is the son of Allah, for 2 items of proof which got here down from Heaven and for his copying the Torah and for his preventing the reason for the Israelites. He had been copying the Torah for Ezekial within the land of darkness within the hermitage of Ezekiel. The village which was in ruins is alleged to be Sayrabadh. Ibn Abbas commanded: “So it is as Allah said: “We have made of you a sign for the people.” (Quran 2:259)
