Commandments of Torah: Do the Jew Bound to Obey All of Them?

Yes, all of the Jews bound to accept all the Commandments of Torah even some extra as they accept those on the edge of death and life ie when they have only option to take Torah or to die. The story as follows-

God said to Abraham, "Indeed, I will make you a leader for the people."
What is the reason that God declared such? It is for the Abraham's credibility, because -

i). Living in the house of a idol worshipers, USING BRAIN, he discover the REAL GOD —ONE and ONLY.
ii). He proved his LOVE to God.

[When Abraham discover the Real God and came to understand that all on earth were in clear wrong, he dismantled all those false God. And when people discover that it was Abraham who did the massacre. They arrest and brought him to the Court of Nimrod.

"Then, you- the Abraham!! who finds a True God? Who is He?"—Nimrod asked.

In that confrontation with Nimrod, Abraham argues that God is the one who gives life and gives death. The king responds by bringing out two people sentenced to death. He releases one and kills the other as a poor attempt at making a point that he also brings life and death. Abraham refutes him by stating that Allah brings the Sun up from the East, and so he asks the king to bring it from the West. The king is then perplexed and angered ordered to throw him in an open fire so that people may watch to understand clearly that there is no God but Nimrods.

And the God of Abraham nakedly save him in front of the whole country men. Then Angel Gabriel said: "Abraham, all the world shall know how God loves you; but how shall the world know the love that you bear to God? Assuredly it is necessary that you do something for love of God."
Abraham answered: 'Behold the servant of God, ready to do all that which God shall will.'

Then spoke God, saying to Abraham: "Take your son, your firstborn (ie. Ishmael);and come up the Mountain Marwah [al-Marwah- a mountain now located in the Masjid al-Haram in Mecca] to sacrifice him."

And to prove his love to God, Abraham brought Ismael to the said place and down him and then raised his naked sword and downed that towards the neck. And the very moment God…….
Thus Abraham fulfilled Gods commands, but it was only a test.

So God wanted to honor him, and He made a covenant, saying: "Abraham, circumcise thy foreskin and that of all thy house, for this is a covenant between me and thee for ever.'' -then He cleared Abraham the way He wanted to honour him saying, "Indeed, I will make you a leader for the people."--(2:124)

But Abraham confused it ends to his death or its a continuous process—-ie. applicable even to his descendants, —-so he asked,— "And of my descendants?"--(2:124)

God told him the fact concerning circumcision, and said: "The soul that shall not have his flesh circumcised, I will scatter him from among my people for ever." 'then He cleared Abraham saying, "My covenant does not include the wrongdoers." -(2:124)

Obviously Abraham not happy hearing such, and almighty God, the All knowing and Wise one want to happy him with a “Glad Tidings” saying: "Behold, in your seed I will bless all the tribes of the earth; and as you have broken in pieces the idols, O Abraham;, even so shall your seed do."" ie. a promise for the Messiah for the mankind.

From the above we see, God not denied Abraham ie SURETY a prophethoodship among his descendants, but WITH A CONDITION OF OBEDIENT-SHIP that shall be fulfilled OBSERVING the COVENANT and His promise shall never be applicable for the transgressor. So He said this way- "My covenant does not include the wrongdoers."

Now a question why God include such covenant?
All we know that Adam, the first man, eat the fruit forbidden by God in paradise, his flesh rebelled against the spirit; whereupon he swore, saying: "By God, I will cut thee!"

Commandments of Torah
And having broken a piece of rock, he seized his flesh to cut it with the sharp edge of the stone: whereupon he was rebuked by the angel Gabriel. And he answered: "I have sworn by God to cut it; I will never be a liar!"

'Then the angel showed him the superfluity of his flesh, and that he cut off. And hence, just as every man taketh flesh from the flesh of Adam, so is he bound to observe all that Adam Promised with an Oath.

This did Adam observe in his sons, and from generation to generation came down the "Obligation of Circumcision". But in the time of Abraham there were but few circumcised upon the earth, because that idolatry was multiplied up the earth. So God made the covenant for the "Salvation of Mankind" from the "Original Sin".

And for that covenant, every time the Israelis deviated from the path of God, He sent a messenger among them.

Thus when the Israelis were oppressed In the hands of Pharaoh, He send a powerful prophet among them to release them from Pharaoh. Moses showed a series of works that can do no one but God only; And all Israelis were the witness. Qur'an says- 

Indeed, Pharaoh exalted himself in the land and made its people into factions, oppressing a sector among them, slaughtering their [newborn] sons and keeping their females alive. Indeed, he was of the corrupters. And We wanted to confer favor upon those who were oppressed in the land and make them leaders and make them inheritors. And establish them in the land and show Pharaoh and [his minister] Haman and their soldiers through them that which they had feared.-(28:4-6)

And We certainly seized the people of Pharaoh with years of famine and a deficiency in fruits that perhaps they would be reminded.But when good came to them, they said, "This is ours [by right]." And if a bad [condition] struck them, they saw an evil omen in Moses and those with him. ..
And they said, "No matter what sign you bring us with which to bewitch us, we will not be believers in you."

So We sent upon them the flood and locusts and lice and frogs and blood as distinct signs, but they were arrogant and were a criminal people. And when the punishment descended upon them, they said, "O Moses, invoke for us your Lord by what He has promised you. If you [can] remove the punishment from us, we will surely believe you, and we will send with you the Children of Israel."

But when We removed the punishment from them until a term which they were to reach, then at once they broke their word. So We took retribution from them, and We drowned them in the sea because they denied Our signs and were heedless of them. And We caused the people who had been oppressed to inherit the eastern regions of the land and the western ones, which We had blessed. And the good word of your Lord was fulfilled for the Children of Israel because of what they had patiently endured.

When Israelis leaving Egypt, a time comes when they found themselves in a trap, both sides of them are hill, at behind Pharaoh to attack them and front red sea, Quran says - "And We took the Children of Israel across the sea; then they came upon a people.." they were idolater, Now look what is Israelis, Gods chosen people. Quran says, they "intent in devotion to [some] idols of theirs. They said, "O Moses, make for us a god just as they have gods."

A nation!! Here, the Israelis asked Moses a god of Idol at a time, when the almighty God just save them from the people of Pharaoh, [who were] afflicting them with the worst torment -killing their sons and keeping their women alive, through the Red Sea with a great sign.

Israelis!! Is this the people whom God preferred over the worlds? However, Moses rebuked them, but they were not a thing that ever changed. So, when Moses went to Tur (a mountain on the bank of Red Sea in the Arabian Desert where God Almighty gives him Torah) for 30 days [but 1o days extend later by God] to bring the law book of God, a part of the Israelis wanted to go back to Egypt due to a delay some days that Moses promised to Israelis of his return [to his people]. So, they made from their ornaments [Those they borrow from the Egyptian with a promise to return when they will back] a golden calf, having a lowing sound, as their god and guider on their way back to Egypt. And they began to worship that calf, Opis

And Aaron had already told them, "O my people, you are only being tested by it, and indeed, your Lord is the Most Merciful, so follow me and obey my order."
But they said, "We will never cease being devoted to the calf until Moses returns to us."

So Moses returned to his people, angry and grieved. He said, "O my people, did your Lord not make you a good promise? Then, was the time [of its fulfillment] too long for you, or did you wish that wrath from your Lord descend upon you, so you broke your promise [of obedience] to me?"-(20:86) So God punished them for their nature, that they may learn.

And after all of this, when Moses presented the Book of God to his people, they said, "O, Moses, how do we know that it is from God? It may possible that you wrote that book and telling us that it's from God?"
Moses said, "O my people, why do you harm me while you certainly know that I am the messenger of God to you?"

Surely the Israelis deviated, so, God caused their hearts to deviate. For God does not guide the defiantly disobedient people. So they Said, "We can't take this as a Book of God without any proof, Surely, we never do such unless otherwise, God himself tell us that it is His Book."
So Moses asked God to clean him.

Then according to the instruction of God, Moses chose from his people seventy men for God's appointment. And when they went to the valley, God speaks to them. His Voice equally echoed from all sides. The Israelis looking for God all around to find where He was hiding, but they see nothing. So they shouting and told Moses, "We will never believe you until we see God outright"; So, they were again punished by God. Thunderbolt took them while they were looking on, and it was because of their wrongdoing.

Moses Cried to God- "My Lord, if You had willed, You could have destroyed them before and me [as well]. Would You destroy us for what the foolish among us have done? This is not but Your trial by which You send astray whom You will and guide whom You will. You are our Protector, so forgive us and have mercy upon us; and You are the best of forgivers. And decree for us in this world [that which is] good and [also] in the Hereafter; indeed, we have turned back to You."

He said, "My punishment -I afflict with it whom I will, but My mercy encompasses all things. So I will decree it [especially] for those who fear Me and give zakah and those who believe in Our verses" -(see 7:155-56) Then God revived Israelis after their death that perhaps they would be grateful.-(See 2:55-56)

Then...? The representative certify Moses that what he said before, all were true, the Book surely from God and they bear the witness. But the Israelis were arrogant.

Korah (Qarun in Arabic), the cousin of Moses rebelled with his follower. He plied him the following questions-: "Does a Tallit made entirely of blue wool need fringes?" To this Moses' answer affirmative. And Korah objected: "The blue color of the Tallit does not make it ritually correct, yet according to thy statement four blue threads do so" -[Num. 15:38].

And Korah asked, "Does a house filled with the books of the Law need a Mezuzah?" Moses replied that it did; whereupon Korah said: "The presence of the whole Torah, which contains 175 chapters, does not make a house fit for habitation, yet thou sayest that one chapter thereof does so. It is not from God that thou hast received these commandments; thou hast invented them thyself." -[Midr. Agadah to Num. 16:8; Yalḳ., Num. 750; comp. Num. R. l.c.; Tan. l.c.; Sanh. 110a].

Korah then assembled 249 men, chiefs of the Sanhedrin, and all denied the priestly share of Aaron's sons, saying that the Laws were not from God but from Moses. Having been informed of these, Moses went to Korah, but the latter and his followers rose up against him and his brother Aaron. [see Num. R. 18:2; Tan. l.c.; comp. Targ. pseudo-Jonathan to Num. 16:2].

Korah said, ‘O, Moses! receiving prophethood your status raises than me, its OK, but you should have to know that I have achieved a higher position for worldly wealth than you. So, you can't deny my status, my position among Israelis is not lower than you. So, why not I will be entitled to the leadership among Israelis as you are leading them?’

Moses said, ‘Korah! I swear by God, I do not have any authority to this matter. That is fully from Him and we are just following that. He is all in all not only on that matter, but for everything. And for the case of leadership, you should know, that He offered it to one and apart it from other to whom He wishes to.’

Korah was not satisfied with this answer. So he said, ‘O, Moses! God offered prophet hood to you calling Personally on the valley of Tur, very well, but your brother Aaron was among us all the time, then, what was the signs of his leadership?’
Moses answered, ‘I told you before, it is from God.’
Korah said, “By Allah! I will never testify to it unless and until you give some evidence or argument.”
And Korah's followers said to Moses, “You go too far! The whole community, all of them, are holy; the Lord is in their midst. Why then should you set yourselves over the Lord’s assembly?”

When Moses heard this, he fell prostrate. Then he said to Levites, "You Levites! Are you not satisfied that the God of Israel has singled you out from the community of Israel, to have you draw near Him to maintain the Lord’s Tabernacle, and to attend upon the community and to serve them? He has allowed you and your Levite kinsmen with you to approach Him, and yet you seek the priesthood too. It is therefore against the Lord that you and all your faction are conspiring. As for Aaron, what has he done that you should grumble against him?”

"So", Moses said to Israelis, "May the Lord make known tomorrow morning who belongs to Him and who is the holy one and whom He will have draw near to Him!"

Korahs wife, influenced him saying: "See what Moses has done. He has proclaimed himself king; he has made his brother High Priest, and his brother's sons priests; still more, he has made thee shave all thy hair [comp. Num. 8:7] in order to Disfigure thee." -

Then...? Korah incited all the people against Moses, arguing that it was impossible to endure laws instituted by Moses. He said, “Moses asked, what has Aaron done to us that we should grumble against him?”

O you People!! Don’t you see those laws that Moses made in the name of God, shall rich Aaron, the priests only? And will make all the Isralis in a few years to beg to the door of Aaron, the Priest? He then explain laws of Moses with the following parable [made by cut-pesting some of God's laws]:

"A widow, the mother of two young daughters, had a field. When she came to plow it, Moses told her not to plow it with an ox and an ass together-(Deut. 22:10); when she came to sow it, Moses told her not to sow it with mingled seeds -(Lev. 19:19). At the time of harvest she had to leave unreaped the parts of the field prescribed by the Law-(Leviticus, 23:22), while from the harvested grain she had to give the priest the share due to him.-(Leviticus, 23:10)

The woman sold the field and with the proceeds bought two sheep. But the first-born of these she was obliged to give to Aaron the priest; and at the time of shearing he required the first of the fleece also
-(Deut. 18:4). The widow said: 'I can not bear this man's demands any longer. It will be better for me to slaughter the sheep and eat them.' But Aaron came for the shoulder, the two cheeks, and the maw -(ib. verse 3). The widow then vehemently cried out: 'If thou persistest in thy demand, I declare them devoted to the Lord.'

Aaron replied: 'In that case the whole belongs to me'
-(Num. 18:14), whereupon he took away the meat, leaving the widow and her two daughters wholly unprovided for" -(Num. R. 18:2-3; Tan., Korah, 4-6).

"Now, O my people!", Korah said, "Do you want to believe these laws that will make you a dime-less beggar within a few years like the widow, but riches Aaron, the Priest, are from God? No, surely not, Moses himself has written those for you, o my people! they want to steal your wealth only to make themselves wealthiest".

Moses said to his People, "Do you want to say that the Book is not from God, after 70 of your leader certify and bear witness that it is from God?"
But the Israelis said, "O Moses! We can't take the Book as its laws are difficult to obey." They demand to change the scripture.
And then God said to the Israelis, "Take what We have given you with determination and listen."
But, they said, "We hear and disobey."

So God ordered Gabriel to raise the Mountain over them. Qur'an says “And when We raised the mountain above them as if it was a dark cloud and they were certain that it would fall upon them, [and Allah said], "Take what We have given you with determination and remember what is in it that you might fear Allah ."-(7:171)

Now the Israelis found themselves near the death, they feared that the mountain going to put all of them to an end. At that point, at the edge of death and life, they gave God their words to obey Him and His Laws.

Then God had taken a covenant from the Children of Israel, He delegated from among them twelve leaders. And then said, "I am with you. If you establish prayer and give zakah and believe in My messengers and support them and loan Allah a goodly loan, I will surely remove from you your misdeeds and admit you to gardens beneath which rivers flow. But whoever of you disbelieves after that has certainly strayed from the soundness of the way."-(5:121)

The End.
