Idolaters of Makkah denied from accepting the Prophet
Chapter Maryam (Mary) – 19
‘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)
With regard to arrangement order of the Chapters, this is nineteenth Surah of Holy Qur’an. It was revealed in the preliminary times of Messenger-hood during stay at Makkah. It contains six Sections.
When Idolaters of Makkah denied from accepting Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) as a Messenger, and for denying; they produced different types of excuses, then they were caused to understand in many Chapters, which were revealed in Makkah that: Allah Almighty has determined this way for guidance of the mankind with effect from the beginning that “for causing to know the human beings, some persons chosen from them should be appointed as Prophets (peace be upon them) from time to time. And for those chosen persons; some such particular signs should be fixed; by observing of which; the wise people may know easily that these are special people, their habits and manners are best and separate from others”.
For manifesting this matter, the people were caused to hear the mention of great Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon them) again and again in different ways, so that they may understand that “being Messenger of a mankind is not any strange thing. They were appointed and sent among the ancient people also at suitable times”.
The Message of the Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon them) is that “this entire universe has been created by Allah Almighty. He is the Creator of the mankind too. Life of every human being is for a fixed time in the world, after that they will die and will be reproduced again after some time. And then they will never die but live always. That perpetual life will be pleasant and comfortable for those people who would have dwelled the transitory life of the world according to the Sayings of the Messengers (peace be upon them). But those who would have disobeyed them (peace be upon them), they will pass their next life in suffering and sorrow.
In this Chapter, mention has been made in respect of Prophets Zachariah, John, Jesus, Abraham, Ishmael and Idris from the ancient Prophets (peace be upon them).
Then it has been admonished to the mankind after describing the circumstance of the Last Day that if they want to be saved from their enemy and are desirous of good in the Hereafter, then they should follow as Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) has directed and make the Holy Qur’an “Rules of Practice” for themselves. He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) is the Last Messenger of God Almighty and Holy Qur’an is His Last Scripture, which has been sent for the guidance of the entire human beings. If you did not believe in it then you would pass your worldly life in disputes, fear and confusion, and find not ease and comfort in the Day of Resurrection.
