The Hawa`riyyuns in the Light of the Quran

The Quran has addressed the disciples of Jesus as Hawariyyuns, five times in four different verses.

"When Jesus found disbelief on their part, he said, "Who will be my helpers in the work of Allah?" The Hawariyyuns (disciples) replied, "We are Allah’s helpers, we believe in Allah and you bear witness that we are Muslims." Quran, 3/52. A similar statement from the disciples has been recorded in the chapter entitled "Rows", verse fourteen as follows : "O ye who believe! Be the helpers of Allah as Jesus, the Son of Maryam (Mary) said to the Hawariyyuns, "Who will be my helpers in the work of Allah?" The Hawariyyuns said, "We are helpers of Allah." Then a portion of the children of Israel believed and a portion disbelieved, but We gave power to those who believed against their enemies, so that they became the ones that prevailed." 61/14. The Hawariyyuns, disciples, have been praised exceptionally and promised to be given superiority in the following verse of the Quran as well: Remember when Allah said, "O Jesus! I will take you and raise you to Myself and purify you of the falsehoods and of those who blaspheme. I will make those who follow you, superior to those who reject faith, to the day of resurrection. Then you shall return to Me and I will judge between you of the matters wherein you dispute." 3/55.
