This course concludes Sura al-Baqara by encouraging believers to give charity and to spendin the way of Allah. To balance this, the harms of Riba (Interest) are made clear, lest anyone seeks a purely material increase in this life at the cost of punishment in the next. Following this, Sura Al ‘Imran begins its focus on the meanings of Tawhid (Divine Oneness) and its many facets. The false narratives about Mary and Jesus are rebutted, and some of the corrupt practices of the Banu Isra’il are laid bare.
