God’s commandment for the Messenger

Surah ‘Al-Hijr – (The Rocky Tract) – 15

‘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)

نَبِّئْ عِبَادِىٓ أَنِّىٓ أَنَا ٱلْغَفُورُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ 49

 وَأَنَّ عَذَابِى هُوَ ٱلْعَذَابُ ٱلْأَلِيمُ 50

 وَنَبِّئْهُمْ عَن ضَيْفِإِبْرَٰهِيمَ 51

49.  Announce, (O Muhammad) unto My slaves that verily I am the Forgiving, the Merciful-


50.  And that My Doom is the dolorous Doom.


51.  And tell them of Abraham’s guests.     

49.  Nabbi’  ‘ibaaDiii  ‘Anniii  ‘Anal-Gafuurur-Rahiim.


50.  Wa  ‘anna  .AzaaBii  huwal- ‘Azaabul-‘aliim.


51.  Wa  nabbi’-hum  ‘an-  zayfi  ‘Ibraa-hiim.




Nabbi’ – (Announce! and Tell!), it is a word of command from tambi-‘atun, origin of which is n-b-‘. Nabaa-‘un means “the news”. Tambi-‘atun means “to inform”.


In the verses of this lesson, it has been commanded to the Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him): Draw attention of the people unto Mercy and Doom (both Attributes) of Allah Almighty; by causing to hear them the news of Adam (peace be upon him) and Iblis (the outcast), and tell them! You beheld that Mercy of Allah Almighty can make any worthless thing of a great dignity, and His Rage can cause to fall down the thing of any great degree within a moment. He can forgive sins of His slaves if He will and make them rich with His Mercy. But if He will, can punish them severely due to their guilt. There is none Merciful save Him and even there is none who have power to punish save Him.


If these people wish to behold the Glory of God’s Mercy and pomp of His Doom clearly in the world, then you {O Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him)} should cause to hear them the story of the guests of Prophet Abraham (peace be upon him), who were, in fact, Angels (peace be upon them). They (the Angels) showed, on one side, rare pattern of God’s Mercy by informing Prophet Abraham (peace be upon him) about a good news (of son), and on the other side, they produced a picture of God’s enormous Rage by destroying the folk of Lot (peace be upon him).
