Prophet as a Guide

Surah YUUNUS – 10 (JONAH)


In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful




This Chapter is one of those, first letters of which are “Muqatt’at”. Only Allah Almighty knows the meanings of such Letters or whom He has told, they know. It is commanded that these verses, which you have been reciting and listening, are revelations of a Book, in which, there is no scope of doubt and none is capable to change them. Whatsoever is mentioned in it; that is Final, Perfect and Complete in all respect. Allah Almighty has given this Book to His Last Messenger, Muhammad (grace, blessings and peace be on Him), Whom He has sent for the Guidance of all human beings.


It is commanded: Allah Almighty appointed a Man among you, Whom He bestowed more virtues and prominent superiorities for the work of His Prophet-hood, so that He should frighten the entire people of the world and warn them that the mankind has not been born for passing his life in the world as untrustworthy like animals. An account of his entire deeds, which he performed or committed in this world, whether those are good or bad, will be taken from him after death.


Those people who did not believe in Allah Almighty and did not abide by the Laws, prescribed by Him, they will be punished properly and they will suffer from big torment due to their disobedience. But you should bring the good tidings unto those people who believed and abode by the Divine Laws, that they will be bestowed with great rewards against their believing and abiding by the Rules and Regulations prescribed by God Almighty, and their Lord will grant them very higher dignities due to running on His Path.


Then God Almighty commands: It is not surprising if Allah Almighty appoints a Mankind from others as His Messenger and sends Him unto the people after causing to know Him by inspiring, so that the Straight Path should be obvious for the human beings. It is, however a surprising thing if the people do not believe in One God, the Most High; after hearing the Sayings of the Messenger of Allah Almighty (peace be upon Him), and by observing unusual influence in the Sayings of the Messenger (grace, blessings and peace be on Him) and Revelations of Holy Qur’aan, they begin to say that the Messenger is a manifest wizard, and they may not understand that affect of charm is never lasting. It is only a deception for some time, though whoever is influenced by Holy Qur’aan, can never be changed.


The subject of this verse; in which the Infidels should meditate, is that; capability of every individual is quite different from others. If someone is wise, then the other may be dull. If someone is hardworking; then the other may be lazy and useless. Someone has so sharp mind that he reaches the bottom of the matter immediately, whereas some are those who remain thinking only. According to this rule, whoever has been created with perfect internal and external powers, and if Allah Almighty appoints him His Messenger, inspires him His Word and makes him A Guide for other people, then what is surprising in it?
