Advantages of sending the Holy Spirit

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)

 قُلْ نَزَّلَهُۥ رُوحُ ٱلْقُدُسِ مِن رَّبِّكَ بِٱلْحَقِّ لِيُثَبِّتَ ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَهُدًىوَبُشْرَىٰ لِلْمُسْلِمِينَ 102


102.  Say: The Holy Spirit hath delivered it from thy Lord with Truth, that it may confirm (the faith of) those who believe, and as guidance and good tidings for those who have surrendered (to Allah). 102.  Qul  nazzalahuu  Ruuhul-Qudusi  mir-Rabbika  bil-Haqqi  li-yusabbi-talla-ziina  ‘aamanuu  wa  Hudanw-wa  Bushraa  lil-Muslimiin. 




Ruuhul-Qudusi – (The Holy Spirit), qudus means “holy, sacred, pure”. Ruuh means “Spirit, soul etc.” It aims “the Angel – Gabriel (peace be upon him)”.


The real fact regarding Holy Qur’an has been manifested in this verse. It is commanded: O Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him)! This Magnificent Book has been sent down unto you from your Lord, and the Bringer of It is an Angel, who is pure from all kinds of apparent and hidden contaminations and stenches. He (peace be upon him) is free from apparent contamination because He is a Spirit and Soul only. Apparent contamination arises due to the body and is concerning the body only. The Spirit does not have any concern with apparent contamination. The holy Souls are pure also even from the hidden contaminations, for example, telling a lie, deceiving or embezzling etc.


After that, it is commanded: There are three main advantages of sending the Holy Spirit {the Angel (peace be upon him)}:


  1. The hearts of those who believe in Allah Almighty; become strong and are satisfied when they see that the verses are revealed timely according to expedience, that Allah Almighty has been looking their works and He is Aware of their circumstances. He sends commandment according to every occasion at the spot.


  1. From the Revelations, Muslims are known easily in all conditions that what should they do in which situation? First of all; the Command comes clearly that they should do so and so now. Moreover, by participating in the work personally, Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon him) guides that how should they perform.


  1. The Holy Spirit delivers good tidings to the Muslims that good reward will be given to them due to their good works. They will be successful in the world and in addition; they will achieve perpetual comfort and ease also in the Hereafter.
