💠 *Page 13*

🔹 *Verse 85*

The word "Kufr" has several meanings and isn't always referred to unfaith and the unfaithful. It's narrated from Imam Sadiq (AS) that he said, _The forth meaning of Kufr is abandoning what Allah has ordered and he referred to this verse (and continued), thus Allah attributed Kufr to them (Jews) for not following his orders and he (also) attributed them to faith but didn't accept it from them and (their faith) didn't benefit them before God (because of their disobedience)._

📚 Al-Kafi

In this sense of the word Kufr, we would also be regarded as Kafir when we disobey Allah's orders.

🔹 *Verse 87*

Different comments are given about the *HOLY SPIRIT* by commentators:

*1)* Some take it to be the Arch Angel _GABRIEL_, and the verse may mean that; _Allah strengthened Jesus through Gabriel._

*2)* Some commentators understand it to be the _MYSTERIOUS UNSEEN POWER_ of Allah by which Jesus Christ (AS) healed the sick and raised the dead.
