Lesson # 583 From Holy Qur’aan

Revelation of Allaah Almighty

Surah Nisaaa’ (Women) – Chapter – 4)

Verses –163 & 164 of 176, Section – 23/24 (Part – 6)


163.  Lo! We inspire thee as We inspired Noah and the Prophets after him, as We inspired Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and Jesus and Job and Jonah and Aaron and Solomon, and as We imparted unto David the Psalms.


164. And messengers We have mentioned unto thee before and messengers We have not mentioned unto thee. And Allaah spake directly unto Moses.

163.  ‘Innaaa  ‘aw-hayNaaa  ‘ilayka  kamaaa  ‘aw-hayNaaa  ‘ilaa  Nuuhinw-wanna-biyyiina  mim-  ba’-dih.  Wa  ‘aw  hayNaaa  ‘ilaa  ‘Ibraa-hiima  wa  ‘Ismaa-‘iila  wa  ‘Is-haaqa  wa  Ya’-quuba  wal-‘asbaati  wa  ‘Iisaa  wa  ‘Ayyuuba  wa  Yuunusa  wa  Haaruuna  wa  Sulaymaan.  Wa  ‘aatayNaa  Daawuuda  Zabuuraa.


164.  Wa  rusulan  qad  qasas-Naahum  ‘alayka  min- qablu  wa  rusulal-lam  Naqsus-hum  ‘alayk. Wa  kalla-mAllaahu  Muusaa  takliimaa.    



‘Aw-hayNaaa – (We inspire, We reveal), it is from ‘iihaa, which has been made from Vahii. Vahii means Divine revelation, inspiration i.e. “to say something to someone in the manner that the person, who is saying, cannot be seen”. Secondly it means, “Either to signify or to send message through Angel (peace be upon him)”. Therefore, aim of ‘aw-hayNaaa  is, “We sent message to the Prophets either through Angels (peace be upon them) or in Our own Sound, a little or instantly”.   

‘Asbaata  – it is plural of sabat, which means a tribe. Sons, grandsons and next their children, all are included in it.   

Kalla-ma  – (spoke), it is from takliim, which means to speak, and it has been made from Kalaam, that is to say; to discourse, to converse, to talk.


Allaah Almighty addresses His Last Messenger, Muhammad Mustafa (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) and says, “We inspire you as We inspired before it (Prophets) Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob and their children – Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron and Solomon (peace be upon Them). And We imparted the Scripture Psalms (Zabuur) to Prophet David (peace be upon Him). And We spoke directly to Prophet Moses (peace be upon Him). Besides them, many other Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon them) came in the world, who have not been mentioned in the Holy Qur’aan. Object of telling these verses is that messenger-hood of Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) is not a new thing. This chain of sending the Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon them) has been coming from the beginning of the humankind. Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) is the last ring of that chain as the last brick of any perfect building. Moreover, the Muslims believe in the entire Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon them) and accept that they all were true, who came before the last Messenger i.e. Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), whether the Muslims do not know their names and biographies.
