Purpose of Messengers.

Read in…        HINDI         URDU

رَّبِّ اَعُوۡذُ بِکَ مِنۡ ھَمَزٰتِ الشَّیٰطِیۡنِ ۙ وَ اَعُوۡذُ بِکَ رَبِّ اَنۡ یَّحۡضُرُوۡن ؕ ۔

بِسۡمِ اللّٰهِ الرَّحۡمٰنِ الرَّحِيۡمِۙ۔

            In fact, Allah chooses whomever He wants from among the angels to carry out His affairs. And he chooses Messengers from among the people to convey the message to the people, whomever he wants. So that the Word of Tawheed, the orders and the scales [methods of establishing justice] which were revealed by revelation, to convey it to the people in their own language. So that on the Day of Judgment no polytheist or hypocrite can say that we did not know, otherwise we would have worshiped you. And we do not make Shaitan (evil) our friend.

            The life of the prophets of Allah (peace be upon them) is a model based on the same revelation that was revealed to them and they preached the same revelation.


Allah chooses the prophet as the messenger.

وَمَا نُرۡسِلُ الۡمُرۡسَلِيۡنَ اِلَّا مُبَشِّرِيۡنَ وَمُنۡذِرِيۡنَ ۚ وَيُجَادِلُ الَّذِيۡنَ كَفَرُوۡا بِالۡبَاطِلِ لِـيُدۡحِضُوۡا بِهِ الۡحَـقَّ‌ وَاتَّخَذُوۡۤا اٰيٰتِىۡ وَمَاۤ اُنۡذِرُوۡا هُزُوًا‏ ﴿۵۶﴾۔  

[Q-18:56-57]

        And We send not the messengers except as bringers of good tidings and warners. And those who disbelieve dispute by [using] falsehood to [attempt to] invalidate thereby the truth and have taken My verses, and that of which they are warned, in ridicule. “56”

اَللّٰهُ يَصۡطَفِىۡ مِنَ الۡمَلٰٓٮِٕكَةِ رُسُلًا وَّمِنَ النَّاسِ‌ؕ اِنَّ اللّٰهَ سَمِيۡعٌۢ بَصِيۡرٌ ۚ‏ (۷۵)  يَعۡلَمُ مَا بَيۡنَ اَيۡدِيۡهِمۡ وَمَا خَلۡفَهُمۡ‌ؕ وَاِلَى اللّٰهِ تُرۡجَعُ الۡاُمُوۡرُ‏ ﴿۷۶﴾۔ 

[Q-22:75-76]

           Allah chooses Messengers from angels and from men. Verily, Allah is All-Hearer, All-Seer. He knows what is before them, and what is behind them. And to Allah return all matters (for decision). “75-76”


اِنَّاۤ اَوۡحَيۡنَاۤ اِلَيۡكَ كَمَاۤ اَوۡحَيۡنَاۤ اِلٰى نُوۡحٍ وَّالنَّبِيّٖنَ مِنۡۢ بَعۡدِهٖ‌ۚ وَاَوۡحَيۡنَاۤ اِلٰٓى اِبۡرٰهِيۡمَ وَاِسۡمٰعِيۡلَ وَاِسۡحٰقَ وَيَعۡقُوۡبَ وَالۡاَسۡبَاطِ وَعِيۡسٰى وَاَيُّوۡبَ وَيُوۡنُسَ وَهٰرُوۡنَ وَسُلَيۡمٰنَ‌  ۚ  وَاٰتَيۡنَا دَاوٗدَ زَبُوۡرًا  ۚ (۱۶۳)  وَرُسُلًا قَدۡ قَصَصۡنٰهُمۡ عَلَيۡكَ مِنۡ قَبۡلُ وَرُسُلًا لَّمۡ نَقۡصُصۡهُمۡ عَلَيۡكَ‌ۚ  وَكَلَّمَ اللّٰهُ مُوۡسٰى تَكۡلِيۡمًا  ۚ‏ (۱۶۴)  رُسُلًا مُّبَشِّرِيۡنَ وَمُنۡذِرِيۡنَ لِئَلَّا يَكُوۡنَ لِلنَّاسِ عَلَى اللّٰهِ حُجَّةٌ ۢ بَعۡدَ الرُّسُلِ‌ؕ وَكَانَ اللّٰهُ عَزِيۡزًا حَكِيۡمًا‏ ﴿۱۶۵﴾۔

[Q-4:163-165]

            We have sent thee inspiration, as We sent it to Noah and the Messengers after him: we sent inspiration to Abraham, Isma’il, Isaac, Jacob and the Tribes, to Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, and solomon, and to David We gave the Psalms.  And Messengers We have mentioned to you before, and Messengers We have not mentioned to you, – and to Musa (Moses) Allah spoke directly. Messengers as bearers of good news as well as of warning in order that mankind should have no plea against Allah after the Messengers. And Allah is Ever All-Powerful, All-Wise. “163-165”


وَلَٮِٕنۡ شِئۡنَا لَنَذۡهَبَنَّ بِالَّذِىۡۤ اَوۡحَيۡنَاۤ اِلَيۡكَ ثُمَّ لَا تَجِدُ لَـكَ بِهٖ عَلَيۡنَا وَكِيۡلًا ۙ‏ (۸۶)  اِلَّا رَحۡمَةً مِّنۡ رَّبِّكَ ؕ اِنَّ فَضۡلَهٗ كَانَ عَلَيۡكَ كَبِيۡرًا‏ ﴿۸۷﴾۔

[Q-17:86-87]

             And if We willed We could surely take away that which We have revealed to you by inspiration (i.e. this Qur’an). Then you would find no protector for you against Us in that respect. Except as a Mercy from your Lord. Verily! His Grace unto you (O Muhammad ﷺ) is ever great. “86-87”

Purpose of sending the messengers.

كَذٰلِكَ اَرۡسَلۡنٰكَ فِىۡۤ اُمَّةٍ قَدۡ خَلَتۡ مِنۡ قَبۡلِهَاۤ اُمَمٌ لِّـتَتۡلُوَا۟ عَلَيۡهِمُ الَّذِىۡۤ اَوۡحَيۡنَاۤ اِلَيۡكَ وَ هُمۡ يَكۡفُرُوۡنَ بِالرَّحۡمٰنِ‌ؕ قُلۡ هُوَ رَبِّىۡ لَاۤ اِلٰهَ اِلَّا هُوَ ۚ عَلَيۡهِ تَوَكَّلۡتُ وَاِلَيۡهِ مَتَابِ‏ ﴿۳۰﴾۔

[Q-13:30]

             Thus have We sent you to a community before which [other] communities have passed on so you might recite to them that which We revealed to you, while they disbelieve in the Most Merciful. Say, “He is my Lord; there is no deity except Him. Upon Him I rely, and to Him is my return.” “30”


هٰذَا نَذِيۡرٌ مِّنَ النُّذُرِ الۡاُوۡلٰٓى‏ ﴿۵۶﴾۔

[Q-53:56]

        This [Prophet] is a warner like the former warners. (56)


وَمَاۤ اَرۡسَلۡنَا مِنۡ رَّسُوۡلٍ اِلَّا لِـيُـطَاعَ بِاِذۡنِ اللّٰهِ ‌ؕ۔

[Q-04:64]

             We sent not a messenger, but to be obeyed, in accordance with the will of Allah. 64.


 نَحۡنُ اَعۡلَمُ بِمَا يَقُوۡلُوۡنَ‌ وَمَاۤ اَنۡتَ عَلَيۡهِمۡ بِجَـبَّارٍ  ࣞ‌ فَذَكِّرۡ بِالۡقُرۡاٰنِ مَنۡ يَّخَافُ وَعِيۡدِ ﴿۴۵﴾۔

[Q-50:45]

            We know of best what they say; and you (O Muhammad ﷺ) are not a tyrant over them (to force them to Belief). But warn by the Qur’an, him who fears My Threat. “45”


وَاَنۡ اَتۡلُوَا الۡقُرۡاٰنَ‌ۚ فَمَنِ اهۡتَدٰى فَاِنَّمَا يَهۡتَدِىۡ لِنَفۡسِهٖ‌ۚ وَمَنۡ ضَلَّ فَقُلۡ اِنَّمَاۤ اَنَا مِنَ الۡمُنۡذِرِيۡنَ‏ ﴿۹۲﴾۔

[Q-27:92]

            And to recite the Qur’an, so whosoever receives guidance, receives it for the good of his ownself, and whosoever goes astray, say (to him): “I am only one of the warners.” “92”


 وَمَا نُرۡسِلُ الۡمُرۡسَلِيۡنَ اِلَّا مُبَشِّرِيۡنَ وَمُنۡذِرِيۡنَ‌ۚ فَمَنۡ اٰمَنَ وَاَصۡلَحَ فَلَا خَوۡفٌ عَلَيۡهِمۡ وَلَا هُمۡ يَحۡزَنُوۡنَ﴿۴۸﴾۔

[Q-06:48]

         And We send not messengers but as announcers of good news and givers of warning, then whoever believes and acts aright, they shall have no fear, nor shall they grieve.”48″


كَذٰلِكَ اَرۡسَلۡنٰكَ فِىۡۤ اُمَّةٍ قَدۡ خَلَتۡ مِنۡ قَبۡلِهَاۤ اُمَمٌ لِّـتَتۡلُوَا۟ عَلَيۡهِمُ الَّذِىۡۤ اَوۡحَيۡنَاۤ اِلَيۡكَ ﴿۳۰﴾۔

[Q-13:30]

          Thus have We sent you (O Muhammad ﷺ) to a community before whom other communities have passed away, in order that you might recite unto them what We have inspired to you. “30”


مَا عَلَى الرَّسُوۡلِ اِلَّا الۡبَلٰغُ‌ ؕ وَاللّٰهُ يَعۡلَمُ مَا تُبۡدُوۡنَ وَمَا تَكۡتُمُوۡنَ‏ ﴿۹۹﴾۔

[Q-05:99]

           Not upon the Messenger is except [for] notification. And Allah knows whatever you reveal and whatever you conceal.99.


وَبِالۡحَـقِّ اَنۡزَلۡنٰهُ وَبِالۡحَـقِّ نَزَلَ‌ ؕ وَمَاۤ اَرۡسَلۡنٰكَ اِلَّا مُبَشِّرًا وَّنَذِيۡرًا ‌ۘ‏ ﴿۱۰۵﴾۔

[Q-17:105]

           And with the truth We have sent the Qur’an down, and with the truth it has descended. And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a bringer of good tidings and a warner.105.


كِتٰبٌ اُنۡزِلَ اِلَيۡكَ فَلَا يَكُنۡ فِىۡ صَدۡرِكَ حَرَجٌ مِّنۡهُ لِتُنۡذِرَ بِهٖ وَذِكۡرٰى لِلۡمُؤۡمِنِيۡنَ‏ ﴿۲﴾۔

[Q-07:02]

          (This is the) Book (the Qur’an) sent down unto you (O Muhammad ﷺ), so let not your breast be narrow therefrom, that you warn thereby, and a reminder unto the believers. 2.


اِنَّاۤ اَرۡسَلۡنٰكَ شَاهِدًا وَّمُبَشِّرًا وَّنَذِيۡرًا (۸) لِّـتُؤۡمِنُوۡا بِاللّٰهِ وَ رَسُوۡلِهٖ وَتُعَزِّرُوۡهُ وَتُوَقِّرُوۡهُ ؕ وَتُسَبِّحُوۡهُ بُكۡرَةً وَّاَصِيۡلًا‏ ﴿۹﴾۔

[Q-48:8-9]

            Verily, We have sent you (O Muhammad ﷺ) as a witness, as a bearer of glad tidings, and as a warner. That you [people] may believe in Allah and His Messenger and honor him and respect the Prophet and exalt Allah morning and afternoon. “8-9”


وَمَا يَسۡتَوِى الۡاَعۡمٰى وَالۡبَصِيۡرُ ۙ‏ ﴿۱۹﴾  وَلَا الظُّلُمٰتُ وَلَا النُّوۡرُ ۙ‏ ﴿۲۰﴾  وَلَا الظِّلُّ وَلَا الۡحَـرُوۡرُ ۚ‏ ﴿۲۱﴾  وَمَا يَسۡتَوِى الۡاَحۡيَآءُ وَلَا الۡاَمۡوَاتُ ؕ اِنَّ اللّٰهَ يُسۡمِعُ مَنۡ يَّشَآءُ ۚ وَمَاۤ اَنۡتَ بِمُسۡمِعٍ مَّنۡ فِى الۡقُبُوۡرِ‏ ﴿۲۲﴾  اِنۡ اَنۡتَ اِلَّا نَذِيۡرٌ‏ ﴿۲۳﴾  اِنَّاۤ اَرۡسَلۡنٰكَ بِالۡحَـقِّ بَشِيۡرًا وَّنَذِيۡرًاؕ وَاِنۡ مِّنۡ اُمَّةٍ اِلَّا خَلَا فِيۡهَا نَذِيۡرٌ‏ ﴿۲۴﴾۔

[Q-35:19-24]

             Not equal are the blind and the seeing, Nor are the darknesses and the light, Nor are the shade and the heat, And not equal are the living and the dead. Indeed, Allah causes to hear whom He wills, but you cannot make hear those in the graves. You, [O Muhammadﷺ], are not but a warner. Indeed, We have sent you with the truth as a bringer of good tidings and a warner. And there was no nation but that there had passed within it a warner. “19-24”


  لَـقَدۡ اَرۡسَلۡنَا رُسُلَنَا بِالۡبَيِّنٰتِ وَاَنۡزَلۡنَا مَعَهُمُ الۡكِتٰبَ وَالۡمِيۡزَانَ لِيَقُوۡمَ النَّاسُ بِالۡقِسۡطِ ۚ  ﴿۲۵﴾۔

[Q-57:25]

          We have already sent Our messengers with clear evidences and sent down with them the Scripture and the balance that the people may maintain [their affairs] in justice. “25”


اِنَّاۤ اَوۡحَيۡنَاۤ اِلَيۡكَ كَمَاۤ اَوۡحَيۡنَاۤ اِلٰى نُوۡحٍ وَّالنَّبِيّٖنَ مِنۡۢ بَعۡدِهٖ‌ۚ وَاَوۡحَيۡنَاۤ اِلٰٓى اِبۡرٰهِيۡمَ وَاِسۡمٰعِيۡلَ وَاِسۡحٰقَ وَيَعۡقُوۡبَ وَالۡاَسۡبَاطِ وَعِيۡسٰى وَاَيُّوۡبَ وَيُوۡنُسَ وَهٰرُوۡنَ وَسُلَيۡمٰنَ‌  ۚ  وَاٰتَيۡنَا دَاوٗدَ زَبُوۡرًا  ۚ (۱۶۳)  وَرُسُلًا قَدۡ قَصَصۡنٰهُمۡ عَلَيۡكَ مِنۡ قَبۡلُ وَرُسُلًا لَّمۡ نَقۡصُصۡهُمۡ عَلَيۡكَ‌ۚ  وَكَلَّمَ اللّٰهُ مُوۡسٰى تَكۡلِيۡمًا  ۚ‏ (۱۶۴)  رُسُلًا مُّبَشِّرِيۡنَ وَمُنۡذِرِيۡنَ لِئَلَّا يَكُوۡنَ لِلنَّاسِ عَلَى اللّٰهِ حُجَّةٌ ۢ بَعۡدَ الرُّسُلِ‌ؕ وَكَانَ اللّٰهُ عَزِيۡزًا حَكِيۡمًا‏ (۱۶۵)۔

[Q-4:163-165]

             We have sent thee inspiration, as We sent it to Noah and the Messengers after him: we sent inspiration to Abraham, Isma’il, Isaac, Jacob and the Tribes, to Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, and solomon, and to David We gave the Psalms. And Messengers We have mentioned to you before, and Messengers We have not mentioned to you, – and to Musa (Moses) Allah spoke directly. Messengers as bearers of good news as well as of warning in order that mankind should have no plea against Allah after the Messengers. And Allah is Ever All-Powerful, All-Wise. “163-165”


يٰۤـاَيُّهَا الرَّسُوۡلُ بَلِّغۡ مَاۤ اُنۡزِلَ اِلَيۡكَ مِنۡ رَّبِّكَ‌ ؕ وَاِنۡ لَّمۡ تَفۡعَلۡ فَمَا بَلَّغۡتَ رِسٰلَـتَهٗ ؕ‌﴿۶۷﴾۔

[Q-5:67]

          O Messenger! deliver what has been revealed to you from your Lord; and if you do it not, then you have not delivered His message.


الۤرٰ ࣞ كِتٰبٌ اَنۡزَلۡنٰهُ اِلَيۡكَ لِـتُخۡرِجَ النَّاسَ مِنَ الظُّلُمٰتِ اِلَى النُّوۡرِ ۙ  بِاِذۡنِ رَبِّهِمۡ اِلٰى صِرَاطِ الۡعَزِيۡزِ الۡحَمِيۡدِۙ‏ (۱)  اللّٰهِ الَّذِىۡ لَهٗ مَا فِى السَّمٰوٰتِ وَمَا فِى الۡاَرۡضِ‌ؕ ﴿۲﴾۔

[Q-14:1-2]

          Alif-Lam-Ra.  (This is) a Book which We have revealed unto you (O Muhammad ﷺ) in order that you might lead mankind out of darkness (of disbelief and polytheism) into light (of belief in the Oneness of Allah and Islamic Monotheism) by their Lord’s Leave to the Path of the All-Mighty, the Owner of all Praise. Allah to Whom belongs all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth! And woe unto the disbelievers from a severe torment. “1-2”


وَقَالُوۡا لَوۡلَاۤ اُنۡزِلَ عَلَيۡهِ اٰيٰتٌ مِّنۡ رَّبِّهٖ‌ؕ قُلۡ اِنَّمَا الۡاٰيٰتُ عِنۡدَ اللّٰه ِؕ وَاِنَّمَاۤ اَنَا۟ نَذِيۡرٌ مُّبِيۡنٌ‏ ﴿۵۰﴾۔

[Q-29:50]

            And they say: “Why are not signs sent down to him from his Lord? Say: “The signs are only with Allah, and I am only a plain warner.” “50”

———————————————-

Allah commands the Prophet to make his position clear.

قُلْ لَّاۤ اَقُوۡلُ لَـكُمۡ عِنۡدِىۡ خَزَآٮِٕنُ اللّٰهِ وَلَاۤ اَعۡلَمُ الۡغَيۡبَ وَلَاۤ اَقُوۡلُ لَـكُمۡ اِنِّىۡ مَلَكٌ‌ ۚ اِنۡ اَتَّبِعُ اِلَّا مَا يُوۡحٰٓى اِلَىَّ‌ ؕ قُلۡ هَلۡ يَسۡتَوِى الۡاَعۡمٰى وَالۡبَصِيۡرُ‌ ؕ اَفَلَا تَتَفَكَّرُوۡنَ ﴿۵۰﴾۔

[Q-06:50]

               Say, [O Muhammad], “I do not tell you that I have the depositories [containing the provision] of Allah or that I know the unseen, nor do I tell you that I am an angel. I only follow what is revealed to me.” Say, “Is the blind equivalent to the seeing? Then will you not give thought?” ”50”


 قُلۡ اِنَّمَاۤ اَنَا بَشَرٌ مِّثۡلُكُمۡ يُوۡحٰٓى اِلَىَّ اَنَّمَاۤ اِلٰهُكُمۡ اِلٰـهٌ وَّاحِدٌ‌  ۚ فَمَنۡ كَانَ يَرۡجُوۡالِقَآءَ رَبِّهٖ فَلۡيَـعۡمَلۡ عَمَلًا صَالِحًـاوَّلَايُشۡرِكۡ بِعِبَادَةِ رَبِّهٖۤ اَحَدًا ﴿۱۱۰﴾۔

[Q-18:110]

            Say (O Muhammad ﷺ): “I am only a man like you. It has been inspired to me that your Ilah (God) is One Ilah  (God i.e. Allah). So whoever hopes for the Meeting with his Lord, let him work righteousness and associate none as a partner in the worship of his Lord.” “110”


قُلۡ سُبۡحَانَ رَبِّىۡ هَلۡ كُنۡتُ اِلَّا بَشَرًا رَّسُوۡلًا‏ (۹۳)  وَمَا مَنَعَ النَّاسَ اَنۡ يُّؤۡمِنُوۡۤا اِذۡ جَآءَهُمُ الۡهُدٰٓى اِلَّاۤ اَنۡ قَالُـوۡۤا اَبَعَثَ اللّٰهُ بَشَرًا رَّسُوۡلًا‏ ﴿۹۴﴾  قُلْ لَّوۡ كَانَ فِى الۡاَرۡضِ مَلٰۤٮِٕكَةٌ يَّمۡشُوۡنَ مُطۡمَٮِٕنِّيۡنَ لَـنَزَّلۡنَا عَلَيۡهِمۡ مِّنَ السَّمَآءِ مَلَـكًا رَّسُوۡلًا‏ ﴿۹۵﴾۔ 

[Q-17:93-95]

             Say (O Muhammad ﷺ): “Glorified (and Exalted) be my Lord (Allah) above all that evil they (polytheists) associate with Him! Am I anything but a man, sent as a Messenger?” And nothing prevented men from believing when the guidance came to them, except that they said: “Has Allah sent a man as (His) Messenger?” Say: “If there were on the earth, angels walking about in peace and security, We should certainly have sent down for them from the heaven an angel as a Messenger.” “93-95”


قُلۡ اِنۡ ضَلَلۡتُ فَاِنَّمَاۤ اَضِلُّ عَلٰى نَـفۡسِىۡ ۚ وَاِنِ اهۡتَدَيۡتُ فَبِمَا يُوۡحِىۡۤ اِلَىَّ رَبِّىۡ ؕ اِنَّهٗ سَمِيۡعٌ قَرِيۡبٌ‏ ﴿۵۰﴾۔

[Q-34:50]

            Say: “If (even) I go astray, I shall stray only to my own loss. But if I remain guided, it is because of the Inspiration of my Lord to me. Truly, He is All-Hearer, Ever Near (to all things).” “50”


وَلَقَدۡ اَرۡسَلۡنَا رُسُلًا مِّنۡ قَبۡلِكَ وَ جَعَلۡنَا لَهُمۡ اَزۡوَاجًا وَّذُرِّيَّةً ‌ ؕ وَمَا كَانَ لِرَسُوۡلٍ اَنۡ يَّاۡتِىَ بِاٰيَةٍ اِلَّا بِاِذۡنِ اللّٰهِ‌ ؕ لِكُلِّ اَجَلٍ كِتَابٌ‏ (۳۸)  يَمۡحُوۡا اللّٰهُ مَا يَشَآءُ وَيُثۡبِتُ ‌ۖ ‌ۚ وَعِنۡدَهٗۤ اُمُّ الۡكِتٰبِ‏ ﴿۳۹﴾۔ 

[Q-13:38-39]

            We did send messengers before thee, and appointed for them wives and children: and it was never the part of a messenger to bring a sign except as Allah permitted (or commanded). For each period is a Book (revealed). Allah blots out what He wills and confirms (what He wills). And with Him is the Mother of the Book (Al-Lauh Al-Mahfuz) “38-39”

———————————————–

Allah commands the Prophet only to walk on the Quran.   

اِتَّبِعۡ مَاۤ اُوۡحِىَ اِلَيۡكَ مِنۡ رَّبِّكَ‌‌ۚ لَاۤ اِلٰهَ اِلَّا هُوَ‌ۚ وَاَعۡرِضۡ عَنِ الۡمُشۡرِكِيۡنَ‏ (۱۰۶)  وَلَوۡ شَآءَ اللّٰهُ مَاۤ اَشۡرَكُوۡا ‌ؕ وَمَا جَعَلۡنٰكَ عَلَيۡهِمۡ حَفِيۡظًا‌ ۚ وَمَاۤ اَنۡتَ عَلَيۡهِمۡ بِوَكِيۡلٍ‏ ﴿۱۰۷﴾۔

[Q-06:106-107]

[O Muhammad], Follow what has been revealed to you from your Lord – there is no deity except Him – and turn away from those who associate others with Allah. But if Allah had willed, they would not have associated. And We have not appointed you over them as a guardian, nor are you a manager over them.“106-107”

The Prophet narrates the Quran and its teachings.

الٓرٰ‌ ࣞ  كِتٰبٌ اُحۡكِمَتۡ اٰيٰـتُهٗ ثُمَّ فُصِّلَتۡ مِنۡ لَّدُنۡ حَكِيۡمٍ خَبِيۡرٍۙ‏ (۱)  اَلَّا تَعۡبُدُوۡۤا اِلَّا اللّٰهَ‌ ؕ اِنَّنِىۡ لَـكُمۡ مِّنۡهُ نَذِيۡرٌ وَّبَشِيۡرٌ ۙ‏ (۲)  وَّاَنِ اسۡتَغۡفِرُوۡا رَبَّكُمۡ ثُمَّ تُوۡبُوۡۤا اِلَيۡهِ يُمَتِّعۡكُمۡ مَّتَاعًا حَسَنًا اِلٰٓى اَجَلٍ مُّسَمًّى وَ يُؤۡتِ كُلَّ ذِىۡ فَضۡلٍ فَضۡلَهٗ ‌ؕ وَاِنۡ تَوَلَّوۡا فَاِنِّىۡۤ اَخَافُ عَلَيۡكُمۡ عَذَابَ يَوۡمٍ كَبِيۡرٍ‏ ﴿۳﴾۔

[Q-11:1-3]

            Alif, Lam, Ra. [This is] a Book whose verses are perfected and then presented in detail from [one who is] Wise and Acquainted. [Through a messenger, saying], “Do not worship except Allah. Indeed, I am to you from Him a warner and a bringer of good tidings, And [saying], “Seek forgiveness of your Lord and repent to Him, [and] He will let you enjoy a good provision for a specified term and give every doer of favor his favor. But if you turn away, then indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a great Day.“1-3”


قَدۡ جَآءَكُمۡ بَصَآٮِٕرُ مِنۡ رَّبِّكُمۡ  ۚ  فَمَنۡ اَبۡصَرَ فَلِنَفۡسِهٖ‌ ۚ وَمَنۡ عَمِىَ فَعَلَيۡهَا‌ ؕ وَمَاۤ اَنَا عَلَيۡكُمۡ بِحَفِيۡظٍ‏ ﴿۱۰۴﴾۔

[Q-06:104)

             Verily, proofs have come to you from your Lord, so whosoever sees, will do so for (the good of) his ownself, and whosoever blinds himself, will do so to his own harm, and I (Muhammad ﷺ) am not a watcher over you. “104”


وَاَنۡ اَتۡلُوَا الۡقُرۡاٰنَ‌ۚ فَمَنِ اهۡتَدٰى فَاِنَّمَا يَهۡتَدِىۡ لِنَفۡسِهٖ‌ۚ وَمَنۡ ضَلَّ فَقُلۡ اِنَّمَاۤ اَنَا مِنَ الۡمُنۡذِرِيۡنَ‏ ﴿۹۲﴾۔

[Q-27:92]

            And to recite the Qur’an, so whosoever [By reading the Quran] receives guidance, receives it for the good of his ownself, and whosoever goes astray, say (to him): “I am only one of the warners.” “92”


وَمَاۤ اَرۡسَلۡنَا مِنۡ رَّسُوۡلٍ اِلَّا بِلِسَانِ قَوۡمِهٖ لِيُبَيِّنَ لَهُمۡ‌ؕ فَيُضِلُّ اللّٰهُ مَنۡ يَّشَآءُ وَيَهۡدِىۡ مَنۡ يَّشَآءُ‌ ؕ وَهُوَ الۡعَزِيۡزُ الۡحَكِيۡمُ‏ ﴿۴﴾۔

[Q-14:04]

            And We sent not a Messenger except with the language of his people, in order that he might make (the Message) clear for them. Then Allah misleads whom He wills and guides whom He wills. And He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.”4″


قَالَتۡ لَهُمۡ رُسُلُهُمۡ اِنۡ نَّحۡنُ اِلَّا بَشَرٌ مِّثۡلُكُمۡ وَلٰـكِنَّ اللّٰهَ يَمُنُّ عَلٰى مَنۡ يَّشَآءُ مِنۡ عِبَادِهٖ ؕ وَمَا كَانَ لَنَاۤ اَنۡ نَّاۡتِيَكُمۡ بِسُلۡطٰنٍ اِلَّا بِاِذۡنِ اللّٰهِ ؕ وَعَلَى اللّٰهِ فَلۡيَتَوَكَّلِ الۡمُؤۡمِنُوۡنَ‏ ﴿۱۱﴾۔

[Q-14:11]

           Their Messengers said to them: “We are no more than human beings like you, but Allah bestows His Grace to whom He wills of His slaves. It is not ours to bring you an authority (proof) except by the Permission of Allah. And in Allah (Alone) let the believers put their trust. “11”

Prophethood was given only to men.

وَمَاۤ اَرۡسَلۡنَا قَبۡلَكَ اِلَّا رِجَالًا نُّوۡحِىۡۤ اِلَيۡهِمۡ‌ فَسۡـــَٔلُوۡۤا اَهۡلَ الذِّكۡرِ اِنۡ كُنۡتُمۡ لَا تَعۡلَمُوۡنَ‏ (۷)  وَمَا جَعَلۡنٰهُمۡ جَسَدًا لَّا يَاۡكُلُوۡنَ الطَّعَامَ وَمَا كَانُوۡا خٰلِدِيۡنَ‏ ﴿۸﴾۔

[Q-21:7-8]

         And We sent not before you (O Muhammad ﷺ) but men to whom We inspired, so ask the people of the Reminder [Scriptures – the Taurat (Torah), the Injeel (Gospel)] if you do not know. And We did not create them (the Messengers, with) bodies that ate not food, nor were they immortals, “7-8”


وَمَاۤ اَرۡسَلۡنَا مِنۡ قَبۡلِكَ اِلَّا رِجَالًا نُّوۡحِىۡۤ اِلَيۡهِمۡ‌ فَسۡـــَٔلُوۡۤا اَهۡلَ الذِّكۡرِ اِنۡ كُنۡتُمۡ لَا تَعۡلَمُوۡنَۙ‏ (۴۳)  بِالۡبَيِّنٰتِ وَالزُّبُرِ‌ؕ وَاَنۡزَلۡنَاۤ اِلَيۡكَ الذِّكۡرَ لِتُبَيِّنَ لِلنَّاسِ مَا نُزِّلَ اِلَيۡهِمۡ وَلَعَلَّهُمۡ يَتَفَكَّرُوۡنَ‏ ﴿۴۴﴾۔ 

[Q-16:43-44]

           And We sent not (as Our Messengers) before you (O Muhammad ﷺ) any but men, whom We inspired, (to preach and invite mankind to believe in the Oneness of Allah). So ask of those who know the Scripture [learned men of the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)], if you know not. With clear signs and Books (We sent the Messengers). And We have also sent down unto you (O Muhammad ﷺ) the reminder and the advice (the Qur’an), that you may explain clearly to men what is sent down to them, and that they may give thought. “43-44”


وَمَاۤ اَرۡسَلۡنَا مِنۡ قَبۡلِكَ اِلَّا رِجَالًا نُّوۡحِىۡۤ اِلَيۡهِمۡ مِّنۡ اَهۡلِ الۡقُرٰى‌ؕ ﴿۱۰۹﴾۔

[Q-12:109]

            And We sent not before you (as Messengers) any but men, whom We inspired from among the people of townships.109”


قَالَتۡ لَهُمۡ رُسُلُهُمۡ اِنۡ نَّحۡنُ اِلَّا بَشَرٌ مِّثۡلُكُمۡ وَلٰـكِنَّ اللّٰهَ يَمُنُّ عَلٰى مَنۡ يَّشَآءُ مِنۡ عِبَادِهٖ‌ؕ وَمَا كَانَ لَنَاۤ اَنۡ نَّاۡتِيَكُمۡ بِسُلۡطٰنٍ اِلَّا بِاِذۡنِ اللّٰهِ‌ؕ وَعَلَى اللّٰهِ فَلۡيَتَوَكَّلِ الۡمُؤۡمِنُوۡنَ‏ ﴿۱۱﴾۔

[Q-14:11]

               Their Messengers said to them: “We are no more than human beings like you, but Allah bestows His Grace to whom He wills of His slaves. It is not ours to bring you an authority (proof) except by the Permission of Allah. And in Allah (Alone) let the believers put their trust. “11”

Purpose of all the prophets was to deliver one God and his Orders.

وَمَاۤ اَرۡسَلۡنَا مِنۡ قَبۡلِكَ مِنۡ رَّسُوۡلٍ اِلَّا نُوۡحِىۡۤ اِلَيۡهِ اَنَّهٗ لَاۤ اِلٰهَ اِلَّاۤ اَنَا فَاعۡبُدُوۡنِ‏ ﴿۲۵﴾۔

[Q-21:25]

           And We did not send any Messenger before you (O Muhammad ﷺ) but We inspired him (saying): La ilaha illa Ana [none has the right to be worshipped but I (Allah)], so worship Me (Alone and none else).“25”


اِنَّاۤ اَرۡسَلۡنٰكَ بِالۡحَـقِّ بَشِيۡرًا وَّنَذِيۡرًاؕ وَاِنۡ مِّنۡ اُمَّةٍ اِلَّا خَلَا فِيۡهَا نَذِيۡرٌ‏ (۲۴)  وَاِنۡ يُّكَذِّبُوۡكَ فَقَدۡ كَذَّبَ الَّذِيۡنَ مِنۡ قَبۡلِهِمۡ‌ۚ جَآءَتۡهُمۡ رُسُلُهُمۡ بِالۡبَيِّنٰتِ وَبِالزُّبُرِ وَبِالۡكِتٰبِ الۡمُنِيۡرِ‏ ﴿۲۵﴾۔

[Q-35:24-25]

           Verily! We have sent you with the truth, a bearer of glad tidings, and a warner. And there never was a nation but a warner had passed among them. And if they belie you, those before them also belied. Their Messengers came to them with clear signs, and with the Scriptures, and the book giving light. “24-25”


لَـقَدۡ اَرۡسَلۡنَا رُسُلَنَا بِالۡبَيِّنٰتِ وَاَنۡزَلۡنَا مَعَهُمُ الۡكِتٰبَ وَالۡمِيۡزَانَ لِيَقُوۡمَ النَّاسُ بِالۡقِسۡطِ‌ۚ ﴿۲۵﴾۔

[Q-57:25]

           Indeed, We have sent Our Messengers with clear proofs, and revealed with them the Scripture and the Balance (justice) that mankind may keep up justice.
