Prophets deliver the Revelations of God only

Suratun-Nahl – (The Bee) – 16

‘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)

 إِنَّمَا سُلْطَٰنُهُۥ عَلَى ٱلَّذِينَ يَتَوَلَّوْنَهُۥ وَٱلَّذِينَ هُم بِهِۦ مُشْرِكُونَ 100

  وَإِذَا بَدَّلْنَآ ءَايَةً مَّكَانَ ءَايَةٍ وَٱللَّهُأَعْلَمُ بِمَا يُنَزِّلُ قَالُوٓا۟ إِنَّمَآ أَنتَ مُفْتَرٍۭ بَلْ أَكْثَرُهُمْ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ 101

100.  His power is only over those who make a friend of him, and those who ascribe partners unto Him (Allah).


101.  And when We put a Revelation in place of (another) Revelation, -and Allah Knoweth best what He revealeth- they say: Lo! Thou art only a forger. Nay! But most of them know not.

100.  ‘Innamaa  sultaanuhuu  ‘alallaziina  yata-wallaw-nahuu  wallaziina  hum-  biHii  mushri-kuun. 

(Section 13)


101.  Wa  ‘izaa  baddalNaaa  ‘Aaya-tam-makaana  ‘Aaya-tinw- Wallaahu  ‘A’-lamu  bimaa  Yu-nazzilu  qaaluuu  ‘inna-maaa  ‘anta  muftar.  Bal-  ‘aksaruhum  laa  ya’-lamuun.




About such people; it has been mentioned in this verse; upon whom, Satan has gotten an opportunity, and they are debarred from the support of Allah Almighty and His specific kindness. It is commanded that when the people who are separated from good things, are entangled in worldly disputes and have formed a habit of amusing themselves in fun and play of this world, then it should be considered that they have made a friend and companion of Satan.


Satan instructs at first to his followers that they should not believe that Holy Qur’an is the Word of Allah Almighty. Then in the next verse, it has been informed that Satan produces different kinds of doubts in the hearts of the people about Holy Qur’an. He says: Commandments mentioned in Holy Qur’an are changed from time to time. In the beginning, there was no commandment regarding proper time for offering prayer. Then five times prayer was prescribed. At first, the Object of veneration and reverence (Qiblah) was any other, which was changed afterwards. First of all, it was commanded that you should not fight any other. Then it was commanded: Hold up your weapons and fight against opponents.


Allah Almighty commands in this verse: We change Our Commandments when circumstances are changed. For this reason, the people who do not understand the expedience of the time (that what is useful rather than what is just), they begin to say: It is a self-fabricated Word, which can be changed in accordance with own wishes.


Such people are mostly unaware of existing reality.
