Bis-Millaahir-Rah-maanir-Rahiim.

(In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

                                                           

وَقَالُوا۟ مَالِ هَٰذَا ٱلرَّسُولِ يَأْكُلُ ٱلطَّعَامَ وَيَمْشِى فِى ٱلْأَسْوَاقِ لَوْلَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْهِ مَلَكٌ فَيَكُونَ مَعَهُۥ نَذِيرًا 7

أَوْ يُلْقَىٰٓ إِلَيْهِ كَنزٌ أَوْ تَكُونُ لَهُۥ جَنَّةٌ يَأْكُلُ مِنْهَا وَقَالَ ٱلظَّٰلِمُونَ إِنتَتَّبِعُونَ إِلَّا رَجُلًا مَّسْحُورًا 8

7b.  Why is not an angel sent down unto him, to be a Warner with him –

 

8.  Or (why is not) treasure thrown down unto him, or why hath he not a garden from whence to eat? And the evildoers say: Ye are but following a man bewitched.

7b.  Law  laaa  ‘unzila  ‘ilayhi  malakun  faya-kuuna  ma-‘ahuu  naziiraa.

 

8.  ‘Aw  yulqaaa  ‘ilayhi  kanzun  ‘aw  takuunu  lahuu  jannatuny-ya’-kulu  minhaa.  Wa  qaalaz-zaalimuuna  ‘in  tattabi-‘uuna  ‘illaa  rajulam-mas-huuraa.

Commentary

 

They say: Messenger of Allaah Almighty was supposed to be an Angel, who would neither have been necessitous of food and water, nor had to walk in the markets like common people. However, if he were a mankind, he would have been impressive and a glorious man, before and behind of whom there would have been angels in ranks and files for information of the people and safety of the Messenger. If not more, then one angel was necessary to be along with the Messenger every time for frightening the people, by the influence of which the people had to hear the Sayings of the Messenger.

 

Well, pass it over! Any unusual position of the Messenger were to be compulsory, for example, any heap of treasures in his possession, from which he would have helped the needy people and they had to come running unto him and follow him. If it not then he had to be a landlord and a rich person. He had to possess a garden full of fruit trees, along with dates and grapes etc. in abundance and from which he had to feed the people also along with himself. While he (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) possesses nothing from the above mentioned things then how can we admit that he is Messenger of Allaah Almighty Who is the King of all kings.

 

O people! We think now that if you heard him, you would hear such person who has been bewitched and who has lost his senses (God forbid).
