CRK OBJECTIVE ANSWER
CRS Theory Answer
Greed was demonstrated in gehazi’s life when he went out to take the goods the Neman decided to come and present to Prophet Elisha for curing him of Leprosy. In this biblical passage after Elisha has declined to accept these gifts Gehazi ran chasing Neman for the present and gifts which prophet Elisha declined to accept. Per 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 and presents 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.
Three areas in society where greed is prevalent are:
iii) Families and homes.
Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven.
“Therefore the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his servants.
When he began the reckoning, one was brought to him who owed him ten thousand talents;
and as he could not pay, his lord ordered him to be sold, with his wife and children and all that he had, and payment to be made.
So the servant fell on his knees, imploring him, `Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay you everything.’
And out of pity for him the lord of that servant released him and forgave him the debt.
But that same servant, as he went out, came upon one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii; and seizing him by the throat he said, `Pay what you owe.’
So his fellow servant fell down and besought him, `Have patience with me, and I will pay you.’
He refused and went and put him in prison till he should pay the debt.
When his fellow servants saw what had taken place, they were greatly distressed, and they went and reported to their lord all that had taken place. Then his lord summoned him and said to him, `You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you besought me; and should not you have had mercy on your fellow servant, as I had mercy on you?’ And in anger his lord delivered him to the jailers, till he should pay all his debt. So also my heavenly Father will do to every one of you, if you do not forgive your brother from your heart.”
No limit to granting forgiveness and pardon jesus
makes it clear that there is no limit to giving and receiving forgiveness.
II) Jesus paid our ransom to set us free from the debt of sin
No offense our neighbor can do to us can compare with our own personal debt to God for offending him! We have been forgiven an enormous debt we could not repay on our own.
III)Forgiving others is a sacred duty
If God has shown mercy to us in granting us pardon for our sins, then we, in turn, must show mercy and forgiveness towards every person who has offended us.
8a-James makes it clear that those who trust God don’t merely become experts at listening to God’s Word. 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.
If we don’t, we demonstrate that we don’t truly trust the Father, at least not in that moment.
Peter encouraged Christians to be firm in their faith knowing that suffering was the lot of the entire brotherhood of Christians, all over the world. However, he assured them that the God of grace who called them to eternal glory in Christ, would not only restore and establish them but would strengthen them. In other words
– Our practice of Christianity requires the manifestation in our lives, the teachings and examples of Jesus Christ.
-Obedience to the civil authorities, and all human institutions for the well-being of the society, is an important Christian requirement.
-Suffering on account of Jesus without a justifiable reason attracts great blessing.
-The practical life of a Christian produces a greater result in the conversion of the unbeliever than preaching and teaching.

The Holy phrase ‘In The Name of Allah,
The Beneficent, The Merciful’ / bism-
il-lah-ir-rahman-ir-rahim / is, in fact,
mentioned both at the onset of the
Qur’an and at the beginning of every
Surah, except Surah 9, (Surah Taubah –
Repentance). And, since the purpose
of Allah’s Word, i.e. the whole Qur’an,
is to guide people; as Surah Al-Maidah,
No. 5, verses 15-16 say:
“…Indeed, there has come to you a
light and a clear Book from Allah”,
“With it Allah guideth him who follows

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.
