Lessons from Holy Qur'an

None can be a Messenger after Muhammad

Lesson # 751 From the Noble Quran

None can be a Messenger after Muhammad

Surah ‘Al-‘An-‘aam (Cattle) – Chapter – 6)–Stage – 2

Verse –93a of 165, Section – 11 of 20 (Part – 7)


In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

And who is guilty of more wrong than he who forgeth a lie against Allah, or saith: I am inspired, when he is not inspired in aught; and who saith: I will reveal the like of that which Allah hath revealed? Wa  man  ‘azlamu  mimmanif-taraa  ‘alAllaahi  kaziban  ‘aw  qaala  ‘uuhi-ya  ‘ilayya  wa  lam  yuuha  ‘ilayhi  shay-‘unw-wa  man-qaala  sa-‘unzilu  misla  maaa  ‘anzalAllaah.



‘If-taraa-‘un  – (to forge or frame a lie), this word is made from  far-yun. Far-yun means a lie and baseless talk. ’If-taraa means to forge a lie against someone or tell something bad against such a person, which he does not have.


‘Uuhi-ya’  – (inspired), it is past passive voice, origin of which is ’ii-haa-‘un. This word has been derived from Vahii. Here, vahii means “that Message of Allah, which is inspired upon someone through an Angel. ’Ii-haa means to reveal. Then ‘uuhi-ya will be meant “revealed or inspired”.


It has been described previously that this Holy Qur’an is the Scripture of Allah Almighty, which has been sent in the world for advantage, welfare and benefits of the human beings. Its usefulness will never end. It completes and attests previous all Scriptures. Therefore, as you believe that Torah is the Scripture of God Almighty, in the same way, you should believe that It is also His Scripture and the Word. The only difference is that It is the last and final Scripture, and it has been determined as the last source of Guidance till the Day of Resurrection. It is the reason that It is called Sacred and Blessed Word of Allah Almighty, i.e. Its guidance and usefulness will never end. If you deny It, then you are the biggest tyrant. The infidels of Makkah used to say three things for denying the Holy Qur’an, which are called in this verse “the biggest tyranny”.


It is commanded: Who would be guilty of more wrong than he who forges a lie against Allah Almighty? That is to say; Allah has not revealed any Scripture, or say as: “If Holy Qur’an is a Revelation and Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) is a Messenger, then I am also inspired and I am a messenger too”. Whereas, neither he is inspired, nor is he a messenger. Or he says: “I can also reveal this like Qur’an, as you say that it has been revealed by Allah”.


It manifests that, the person, who says: Allah has not revealed any Scripture, the human being is free and can do whatsoever he wants; he is an infidel. Likewise, that person, who claims that he is a messenger and he is inspired, actually he is also an infidel because, neither any messenger/prophet can come after Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), nor anyone can be inspired.


The Reason behind discontinuity of any Messenger and Revelation is that the Guidance of every sort exists in the Holy Qur’an. Neither any further guidance is required, nor anyone can bring anything better than It which may be more righteous for the humankind. Nothing is revealed unnecessarily. It is not the game of kids. While there is no need of any further revelation, then it is obvious that there is no need of any messenger after the Last Messenger Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him). Now if anyone says, “I am a Messenger and I am inspired”, he is a liar according to this verse and most guilty of wrong.
