Support to Messenger in the light of Inspiration
Surah ‘Ibraahiim (Abraham) – 14
‘A-‘uu-zu Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast.)
(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)
وَقَالَ ٱلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا۟ لِرُسُلِهِمْلَنُخْرِجَنَّكُم مِّنْ أَرْضِنَآ أَوْ لَتَعُودُنَّ فِى مِلَّتِنَا فَأَوْحَىٰٓ إِلَيْهِمْ رَبُّهُمْ لَنُهْلِكَنَّ ٱلظَّٰلِمِينَ 13
وَلَنُسْكِنَنَّكُمُ ٱلْأَرْضَ مِنۢ بَعْدِهِمْ ذَٰلِكَ لِمَنْ خَافَمَقَامِى وَخَافَ وَعِيدِ 14
|13b. Then their Lord inspired them, (saying): Verily We shall destroy the wrongdoers-
14. And verily We shall make you to dwell in the land after them. This is for him who feareth My Majesty and feareth My threats.
|13b. Fa-‘awhaaa ‘ilay-him Rabbuhum la-Nuhli-kannaz-zaalimiin.
14. Wa la-Nus-kinanna-kumul-‘arza mim- ba’-dihim. Zaalika liman khaafa MaqaaMii wa khaafa Wa-‘iid.
Holy Qur’aan causes to draw attention unto such lineage of the Prophets (peace be upon them) which began with effect from the first individual of the human beings i.e. Adam (peace be upon him) and ended on the last Apostle – Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). And by His ample intelligence, which was supported fully in the light of Divine Revelation, He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) manifested every such thing, which could not be understood by common people. But Alas! Maximum people were obstinate during all times and they used to consider that “Messenger is nothing, we ourselves have sufficient sense”.
In these verses, it is being described to the people of nowadays: Due to disobedience of the Messengers (peace be upon him), ancient people were destroyed. They maltreated the Prophets (peace be upon them) of their times and they (peace be upon them) were grieved.
When such circumstances happened, Allah Almighty caused to understand them by means of Inspiration, as it has been mentioned in this verse: Verily We shall destroy the wrongdoers (you should not have any fear), and verily We shall make you (and your believers) to dwell in the land after them. These will be such people who will have fear of reckoning for their accounts, standing before Allah Almighty. And they will have trust in His promises and fear His threats.
Alas! Obstinate people of Makkah did not obey the last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him). At last their end was the same, from which they were frightened and their sense was useless for them without guidance of Divine Revelation.
