The Messenger is also a human being
Lesson # 866 from the Noble Quran
The Messenger is also a human being
Surah ‘A’-RAAF(The Heights) – Chapter – 7)
Stage – 2, Verse –63 of 206, Section
– 8 of 24 (Part - 8)
In the name ofAllah, the Beneficent, the
Marvel ye that a reminder has come unto you
from your Lord by means of a man among you, that he may warn you, and that ye
may keep away from evil, and that haply ye may find mercy.
‘Awa ‘ajibtum ‘an jaaa-‘akum zikrum-mir-Rabbikum ‘alaa
rajulim-minkum liyunzira-kum wa
li-tattaquu wa la-‘allakum
Zikrun – (a
reminder), zikr means “to remind” and
that thing is called zikr also, by
means of which, someone is reminded through a verbal reminder or a letter etc.
Holy Qur-‘aan is a Zikr too and entire Revelations of Allah
Almighty, which His Messengers (peace be upon Them) brought unto the human
beings, are Zikr. Because by means of
them, those promises are reminded, of which, the mankind has taken promise from
Allah Almighty before his birth that he will do as promised. And in which there
is betterment from beginning to end for the humankind.
La-‘alla - (haply, perhaps), this word discloses strong
hope regarding happening of anything, which is called “Expectation”.
Noah (peace be upon Him) conveyed the Message of Allah Almighty to His nation
and said: I am a Messenger of Allah Almighty. Then He (peace be upon Him)
described about the aim and mission of His work.
commanded that Noah (peace be upon Him) asked from His people: Do you say me a
liar and consider it a marvel matter that the Revelation is revealed from your
Lord upon a man, who is like you and an individual from you, and His only
object is that He warns you by means of that Revelation from the result of
adopting the way against humanity, and due to fear you should begin to be saved
from evil deeds, and then there may be a strong hope that you may find mercy?
coming of the Messengers and Prophets (peace be upon Them) in the world has
been explained in this verse. It is duty of the Messenger that He should come
unto the human beings along with the Message of Allah Almighty, as well as He
should also be a mankind. The Prophets’ physical and spiritual powers have this
balance and equilibrium that with those powers They (peace be upon Them) become
able to guide other entire people. This balance and equilibrium in the
Messenger is natural and by birth. Any attempt or profession of any individual
has no access in it.
(peace be upon Him) is an example of good conduct for the human beings of the
world. He does never commit any such work which is harmful for the humankind.
His only job is to frighten the people from the result of evil deeds.
individual can forbid any person from doing bad who escapes himself from it,
otherwise his own deeds falsify his own sayings. Then how would his
conversation be effective? Certainly those people will begin to be saved from
wicked deeds due to the warning of a Messenger (peace be upon Him) who are
sensible. And they will deserve the Mercy of Allah Almighty. The sign of God’s
kindness in the world is that Rule of Safety and Peace is established
everywhere and the heart of everyone be satisfied. Nobody afflicts any other. The
people feel happiness when they perform good work and support one another to
