It was delineated in the previous verses that, which doubt these people have in the Messenger-hood, is not for the reason that they are in search of the Truth, but they feel their work as spoiled, if they believed in the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him). They demand miracles for believing and hurt the Messenger of Allaah Almighty with their likewise behavior.


There is no hope of their coming towards the Straight Path. If they had any intention to understand the Truth, certainly they would have known by taking a little thought that the Messenger and Prophet (peace be upon Him) is a Mankind. He never claims that He possesses the treasures of Allaah Almighty, nor that He has knowledge of the Unseen; and nor that He (peace be upon Him) is an Angel. He is a Man from the Mankind, Who has extremely superior beauties and Who is guided through Divine inspiration and He (peace be upon Him) acts according to the Revelations, and invites the people to act upon Them.


Allaah Almighty addresses His Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him): Let them now as they are, while they do not understand after causing to know them entire these things. And cause to hear and understand the Holy Qur’aan to those people who are ready to reap advantage from It.


Allaah Almighty commands that those people who fear that they will be gathered and set before their Lord Almighty on a Day (the Day of Resurrection), there will be no protecting ally, nor any intercessor for them at that time, each one will be for oneself, everyone will be dealt personally by one’s Lord about one’s deeds. None will be one’s supporter or helper beside Him.

These people can reap advantage from the Guidance of Holy Qur’aan. This Word of Allaah Almighty will cause to know them: It is compulsory for success in the Court of our Lord that we should obey strictly His Commands today in the world, pass our lives in His prescribed limits, do every that work, which pleases Him and give up all those deeds, which are forbidden by Him. It is called piety and fear of God Almighty. Those people who ward of evil can become Sobers and Temperate.


It was commanded in the second verse of Chapter -2 (Baqarah): Zaalikal-Kitaabu  laa  rayba  fiih.  Hudal-lil-Muttaqiin {This is the Scripture whereof there is no doubt, a Guidance unto Those Who ward off (evil)}. It has further been explained in this verse about it that, only that person has ability to be a pious, who fears from Allaah Almighty and wards of evils. Think before you commit – Whether is it right or wrong? For such people, this Word of Allaah Almighty is a Spiritual Guide and a Conductor.
