ibn ‘Abbas (r.a.) on the Disciples of Jesus (a.s.)

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

ibn ‘Abbas (r.a.) said, of the apostles of Jesus (a.s.), “They were fishermen who were catching fish, and Jesus passed them and asked them, ‘What are you doing?’

They replied, ‘We are catching fish.’

He asked them, ‘Will you not come with me that you may catch men?’

They replied to him, ‘What do you mean?’

He said, ‘We will summon men to Allah.’

They asked, ‘And who are you?’

He said, ‘I am Jesus, son of Mary, Allah’s servant and apostle.’

They asked, ‘Are any of the prophets above you?’

He replied, ‘Yes, the Arabian prophet.’

So, those men followed him and believed on him and set out with him.”
