Degrees Of Excellence Of The Prophet


Degrees Of Excellence Of The Prophet

Surah ‘Aali ‘Imran (The Family Of ‘Imran, Chapter – 3)

Verses – 164 of 200, Section –17 (Part – 4)


Allah verily hath shown grace to the believers by sending unto them a Messenger of their own who reciteth unto them His Revelations, and causeth them to grow, and teacheth them the Scripture and Wisdom; although before (he came to them) they were in flagrant error.      

Laqad  mannallaahu  ‘alal-Mu’-miniina  ‘iz  ba-‘asa  fiihim  Rasuulam-min  ‘anfusihim  yatluu  ‘alayhim  ‘Aayaatihii  wa  yuzakkiihim  wa  yu-‘allimu-humul-Kitaaba  wal-Hikmah.  Wa  ‘in-kaanuu  min-  qablu  lafii  zalaalim-mubiin. 




Manna – {(He) did acts of kindness}, it is only one likeness in the Holy Qur’an, which Allah Almighty has spoken about His favor conferred on His servants. It is greatest kindness of Allah Almighty upon the humankind that He sent a man like other men as His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). It is easy for the human beings to sit near him, to talk with him, to understand the Word of Allah Almighty from him (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) and to reap the benefits of each type of fortunes. The people know very well the morality, honesty, trust, sincerity, purity, mercy and circumstances of this Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). When they observe the miracles appearing from the person, who belongs to their own tribe and nation, it becomes easy for them to believe in him. Even though any demon or Angel (peace be upon him) had come as messenger, seeing his miracles, the people could pretend that he did not belong to their class (mankind). Therefore, his morality and deeds were not follow-able for them. So, Allah Almighty sent a human being as His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him), who has good moral character, is merciful, mild and affectionate, from whom they can get bounty frankly. Allah Almighty has bestowed four basic excellences, which have already been described in Surah Baqarah (The Cow):


  1. The Messenger (most gracious) recites Revelations of Allah Almighty and causes to hear the people, apparent meanings of which (Revelations) were able to be understood very easily by the people of Arab as the Arabic was their own language.


  1. He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) purifies the people from sins, evils, idol-worship and polytheism. Removing their dirt, he (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) cleanses their hearts.


  1. He teaches the Scripture of Allah Almighty. Where it seems difficult to understand by the people, he (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) removes the doubts by clearing its meanings.


  1. He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) teaches the knowledge of Wisdom to the people, to reach the bottom, explains the secrets, signs and deep matters of the Holy Qur’an.


The Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) of Allah Almighty formed the Arab nation as spiritual guide and master of the entire world with his love and teaching, which had been drowned in ignorance and astray, which had no perfection or excellence of the world.
