The honored slaves

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.)

  وَمَآ أَرْسَلْنَا مِن قَبْلِكَ مِن رَّسُولٍ إِلَّا نُوحِىٓ إِلَيْهِ أَنَّهُۥ لَآ إِلَٰهَ إِلَّآأَنَا۠ فَٱعْبُدُونِ 25

 وَقَالُوا۟ ٱتَّخَذَ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنُ وَلَدًا سُبْحَٰنَهُۥ بَلْ عِبَادٌ مُّكْرَمُونَ 26

  لَا يَسْبِقُونَهُۥ بِٱلْقَوْلِوَهُم بِأَمْرِهِۦ يَعْمَلُونَ 27


25.  And We sent no messenger before thee but We inspired him, (saying): There is no God save Me (Allah), so worship Me.


26.  And they say: The Beneficent hath taken unto Himself a son. Be He Glorified! Nay, but (those whom they call sons) are honoured slaves –


27.  They speak not until He hath spoken, and they act by His Command.

25.  Wa  maaa  ‘arsalNaa  min-  qablika  mir-rasuulin  ‘illaa  Nuuhiii  ‘ilayhi  ‘annahuu  Laaa-  ‘ilaaha  ‘illaaa  ‘Ana  fa’-buduun.


26.  Wa  qaalutta-khazar-Rahmaanu  waladan-  SubhaanaH.  Bal-  ‘ibaadum-mukramuun.


27.  Laa  yasbiquunahuu  bil-qawli  wa  hum-  bi-‘AmriHii  ya’-maluun.




If the sense of the mankind is pure from external effects and internal defects, and it is used properly, then it will reach only one result, that is to say, The Creator of this world is only One Allaah Almighty. Neither He took help of any other in its creation, nor He asked anyone’s advice for preparing its map and nor was there any such individual able that he should be consulted. Its administration is also entirely in His Hand. He does not need any minister or counselor for this purpose. Only He is Who has established the administrative departments and He issues suitable Commandments concerning every department directly. For the help of the sense, He sent Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon them) and said to them clearly: None is Worshipped except Me. Therefore you should worship Me only, pray from Me only, spread your hands before Me only and convey the same Message to the entire people.


But some people, neither use their sense and nor obey the Sayings of the Messengers (peace be upon them). They ascribe others as partners of Allaah Almighty in the creation of the world and its arrangements. Some people say that the Angels (peace be upon them) or favorite human beings are His sons and daughters. In fact; those are His obedient servants. They do not speak before Him, and they obey that Commandment whatever He orders. Allaah Almighty bestowed them honor. He is Pure from descendants and partners (both).
