A Scripture revealed unto Muhammad
Chapter “The Prophets” – (Suratul – ‘Ambiyaaa’ – 21)
‘A-‘uu-zu Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in Allaah from Satan the outcast.)
(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.)
ثُمَّ صَدَقْنَٰهُمُ ٱلْوَعْدَ فَأَنجَيْنَٰهُمْ وَمَن نَّشَآءُ وَأَهْلَكْنَا ٱلْمُسْرِفِينَ 9
لَقَدْ أَنزَلْنَآ إِلَيْكُمْ كِتَٰبًا فِيهِ ذِكْرُكُمْ أَفَلَا تَعْقِلُونَ 10
|9. Then We fulfilled the promise unto them. So We delivered them and those whom We willed and We destroyed the prodigals.
10. Now We have revealed unto you a Scripture wherein is your Reminder. Have ye then no sense?
|9. Summa sadaqNaa-humul-wa’-da fa-‘anjayNaahum wa man-nashaaa-‘u wa ‘ahlakNal-musrifiin.
10. Laqad ‘anzalNaaa ‘ilaykum Kitaaban- fiihi Zikrukum. ‘Afalaa ta’-qiluun. (Section 1)
Zikru – (fame, good name, celebrity), some meanings of the word Zikr were described in the previous lesson. However, here it aims “celebrity, fame and advice”.
It was commanded previously that unto the mankind, only a mankind can come as a Messenger. And it is necessary that He should be from the children of Adam (peace be upon them). He should eat and drink like other human beings for keeping his body fit, walk and move also like them. And then in the process of time; due to becoming his physical strength weak; he should depart from this mortal world. Therefore, the Prophets (peace be upon them) who came in the world, all of them were mankind.
The only difference which was between the common human beings and the Prophets (peace be upon them); was as it has been commanded in the above mentioned verse that “Allaah Almighty made them His Messengers (peace be upon them) and appointed them for guidance and correction of the people. And they fulfilled their duties. When the people were destroyed due to their disobedience and rebellion, at that time; the Prophets (peace be upon them) and along with them their followers were saved from destruction.
Then it is commanded: Like them, We have sent Muhammad as Our last Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) and appointed him for guidance and correction of the human beings. And We gave him a magnificent Scripture (Holy Qur’an), in which all matters of advice, celebrity and honor have been mentioned for you. Use your sense and get success in the both worlds!
