The Messengers of God

 

The
Messengers
of God

 

In the name of God, the Kind, the Merciful


Once we are convinced that God is the only sovereign in the universe and that the will bestowed on man is limited, it follows that man, with his vastly limited knowledge and capability, is bound to err in his judgments. Furthermore, as the interests of the individual are often in contradistinction with those of society as a whole, man tends to encroach upon the rights of others disturbing in the process the equilibrium that is so essential for the proper functioning of the world. Not only has man been endowed with limited physical and mental capabilities, the resources that are available to him are also limited, though enough for fulfilling essential basic requirements. There is therefore always a struggle, often unseemly of their status as the Best Creation in the Universe, amongst the human beings for the possession of these resources. This competition too more often than not encourages corruption in the world. It is therefore essential that God, the Omniscient, the Wise and the Merciful, must arrange for his guidance.
 

 
            Who should be the guide, messenger or ambassador of God? If the messenger had belonged to some superhuman race, the argument could have been advanced by man that he with lesser capabilities than the guide cannot be expected to follow his message in its entirety. The messenger therefore had to be none but a human being who would not only propagate the message but would also set an example himself of being a perfect subject of the Master; only then will he become a role model for the mankind. God therefore chose only men and not angels as His apostles. To make sure that at no time should mankind be without the message and guidance from God, He chose the very first man (Adam) as His first ambassador. And then at regular intervals, He continued guiding his subjects through His apostles in all parts of the world. These apostles belonged to diverse nations and races and spoke languages of their own people. Apart from the fundamentals that were always the same, they framed laws and rules according to the requirements of that particular period under the uninterrupted guidance of God. In the early days, the population was small with abundant sources of natural food; the earth was too big to be used by them. So, the laws related to distribution of land and other resources were not required. With continuous increase in population and advancement in intellectual capabilities of man, increasingly better defined laws became necessary, which the apostles enjoined. Yet, the basic message of all of them remained essentially the same: that God alone should be worshipped and followed, and that this life being only a trial to be followed by the eternal life of the Hereafter, every human being, man or woman, should make the best possible efforts to conduct with righteousness. To avoid the evil, and to know what is righteousness and what is evil, all should be committed and devoted to the messengers of God and the Scriptures, which they brought.
 

 

            It is said that more than a hundred thousand messengers flourished on earth and propagated the System of God. All or majority of them had to face stiff resistance, With the advancement of the world leading to thesystematisation of affairs and the internationalisation of systems, that was to follow Jesus Christ, it became the need of the time that a prophet should come who was not to be a messenger, as in the past, merely for his own area and race but for the whole world; he would pave the way for the ultimate unity of the whole mankind, under a fully grown system of laws, in submission to God. Because by the time the last prophet was to arrive on the scene the chances of God’s word to pass on to next generations in its original form had brightened owing to the development of calligraphy and printing, and also due to the fact that a large number of Muslims remembered it by heart, there was no need for any other messenger or book to come. The truth is that God, as declared in the Qur’an, took the responsibility Himself of ensuring the survival of the book in its original form
 

 

            As none other than the Creator of the World better understood the requirements of the world, then and thereafter, He guided Prophet Muhammad to develop a unique theo-socio-political system, perfect for all times to come. For a System from God, it should have a miraculous flexibility to adapt and adjust to any new situations and developments that take place. It can be said without any hesitation that the signal absence in the present world of peace at individual and social, and national and international level, in an otherwise physically and temporally advanced world, has now proved beyond doubt that it is only Islam that can bring peace at all levels.
 

 

            Out of the hundreds of thousands messengers and guides that propagated the System of God all over the world, only a small number are known by name. Adam, the father of the mankind came (according to the majority of scholars who base this inference on the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad and one of his best companions, Ali) to India or a nearby country. The names of other prophets mentioned in the Qur’an are: Idris, Nuh (Noah), Ibrahim (Abraham), Ismail, Ishaque (Isaac), Yaqub (Jacob), Yusuf (Jeseph), Musa (Moses), Harun (Aaron), Sulayman (Solomon), Daud (David), Yunus (Jonah), Ayub (Job), Al-yas’a, Ilyas, Hud, Saleh, Shu’ayb, Zakariyah, Yahya (John) and Isa (Jesus). There are also Zul-Kifl, Zul-Qarnain, Luqman and Imran who might not necessarily have been prophets but only guides. Nothing can be said with certainty about the famous Indian saints like Ram, Krishna, Mahavir, Ved Vyas, etc. and other historical figures like Buddha, Zoroaster, Confucius, etc. who might or might not have been the messengers of God.
 

 

            It follows from above that Muhammad was not the founder of Islam (which literally means “peace” and is defined as total submission to God) but in fact the final step in the evolution of Islam into a complete religio-socio-politico-legal system. Prophet Muhammad, after the perfection of the Islamic system, initiated its application founding an Islamic State at Medina, leaving it to his followers to continue to strive hard in the same direction till Islam, the System of Peace, prevails all over the world. The majority of Muslim scholars, with some exceptions, believe that the final triumph will be achieved by the Awaited Mahdi with the support of Jesus Christ who will return to the earth to complete his life and his mission that will be to confirm the Embassy (Risalah) of Muhammad, and establish the true Islamic rule of Peace.
 

 

            The prophets, according to Islam, were all human beings chosen by God to lead the mankind. They possessed no divine power of their own; whatever miracles they performed— Musa’s conversion of staff into a snake, Sulayman’s ability to understand the language of animals, Isa’s ability to revive the dead or the cleavage of moon into two by Muhammad — were only by the will and approval of God. They were perfect because of their spiritual proximity to God and their extraordinarily strong and unfailing faith in His Word. As all of them were true ambassadors of God, a Muslim has no choice but to believe in all of them without distinction; as believing in prophets means believing in God and rejecting them implies rejecting Him. As far as the laws are concerned one has to follow the constitution of that period or that of the prophet that came last, now Muhammad, the Seal of the Prophets, being the one, to be followed for all times to come till the Doomsday.
 

 

It can be convincingly argued that, in sharp contrast to the propaganda unleashed by the enemies of Islam, it is the only religion not intolerant to the founders of other religions, most of which are the remnants of the earlier forms of Islam; it in fact glorifies most of them. In contrast, other religions are not ready to accept or glorify the founders of religions other than their own.
 

 

The messengers, being only subjects though the humblest ones of God, are to be followed, not worshipped. This was told in categorical terms by the messengers themselves; but unfortunately the followers of most of the messengers transformed them into gods themselves or, in the case of Jesus Christ, the only son of God. It goes to the credit of Islam, which again is the evidence of its being a religion for all times to come, that the concept of God’s embassy (Risaalat) has survived in its original form.
Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) was born in 571 AD in Mecca, which had already acquired a very special status, owing to its being the site of Ka’ba, which attracted huge numbers of pilgrims every year from places far and wide. At the age of 40, he was directed by God through his special envoy, the angel Jibril (Gabriel), to declare himself the messenger of God and to initiate the Mission of bringing the whole world to the state of total submission to the one God. Prior to this, Muhammad had already acquired the epithet of Al-Ameen (“The Trustworthy”) among the inhabitants of Mecca in recognition of his unfailing honesty and trustworthiness. But as soon as he declared his mission telling them to shun polytheism, the same Meccans started persecuting him and the handful of his followers. Their opposition was not only due to their faith in their gods but also because the new system could pose a serious challenge to their economic interests related to the annual pilgrimage. Muhammad’s followers were given the harshest possible treatment; they were harassed, beaten, dragged on the burning sand, imprisoned, boycotted and beaten; some of them were even killed. Muhammad (PBUH) was himself mocked, labelled “mad” by some and “sorcerer” by others, showered upon with dust, mud and the intestines and colons of the slaughtered animals, hit with stones and, when his religion showed visible signs of burgeoning, he along with his entire clan, was imprisoned in a cave with all forms of contacts cut off from them. But Muhammad’s determination, as he was the ambassador of God, knew no bounds. His preaching did not only continue to attract followers in Mecca , but also started mesmerising persons of other cities, especially Medina , whom he used to meet on the occasion of the annual pilgrimage. When his mission had lasted thirteen years and the people of Mecca had begun working on a plan to eliminate him, God directed him to leave Mecca and migrate to Medina , where the conditions had turned congenial, as much as that he was given a rousing welcome. In Medina he did not waste any time in establishing an Islamic State. But the Meccans would not leave him in rest even there. The result was that he and the small contingent of his untrained followers had to fight many a battle, most of which they won owing to their extraordinary faith in God, His Prophet and the Hereafter. The Islamic State continued to expand despite all forms of opposition; ultimately the way was cleared for his triumphant return to Mecca , where the Ka’ba was cleansed of all the idols which were put into it in violation of its sanctity. Meanwhile, the Qur’an continued to descend on the Prophet. God’s prophet left the world for his heavenly abode at the age of 63 years, that is, about 23 years after he started his Mission .  During this brief period, he was able to fight against a large number of social evils like tribal wars, discrimination against women, victimisation of slaves, unhygienic practices, many kinds of superstitions, usury, hoarding, drinking, gambling, etc., and above all of them, polytheism. During his life, hundreds of thousands of people had embraced Islam and the boundaries of Islam had reached as far as Syria, Yemen and Egypt; and such was the impact of his teachings and the system that he developed that, within fifteen years of his departure, more than a third of the then world had become part of the Islamic State. And till now his religion continues to attract hundreds of thousands of followers every year in every corner of the world, from America to Japan , from Africa to Australia and from England to Indonesia . There is hardly any surprise therefore that great numbers of scholars regard him as the greatest and most influential man that ever lived on the earth. And the Qur’an calls this worthiest creature of God “Mercy for the Worlds”, an epithet truly worthy of him.

 

 

In the name of God, the Kind, the Merciful

 

The Messengers of God in the Qur'an

 

 

Messengers to be obeyed

 
Mankind was one single nation, and Allah sent Messengers with glad tidings and warnings... (2: 213/Z )
 

 

We sent not an apostle, but to be obeyed, in accordance with the will of Allah. (4: 64/Z )
 

 

With Signs

 

We have sent Our Apostles with clear signs and scales of justice, so that men might deal with fairness. (57: 25/ Z)
 

 

Those apostles We endowed with gifts, some above others: To one of them Allah spoke; others He raised to degrees (of honour)...  (2: 253/Z)
 

 

Those who deny Allah and His apostles, and (those who) wish to separate Allah from His apostles, saying: “We believe in some but reject others”: And (those who) wish to take a course midway,-  They are in truth (equally) unbelievers; and we have prepared for unbelievers a humiliating punishment. To those who believe in Allah and His apostles and make no distinction between any of the apostles, We shall soon give their (due) rewards: for Allah is Oft- forgiving, Most Merciful. (4: 150-152/Z)
 

 

No prophet could (ever) be false to his trust. If any person is so false, He shall, on the Day of Judgement, restore what he misappropriated; then shall every soul receive its due,- whatever it earned,- and none shall be dealt with unjustly. (3: 161/Z)
 

 

We did aforetime send apostles before thee: of them there are some whose story We have related to thee, and some whose story We have not related to thee. (40: 78/Z)
 

 

They said: “Ah! ye are no more than human, like ourselves! Ye wish to turn us away from the (gods) our fathers used to worship: then bring us some clear authority.” Their apostles said to them: “True, we are human like yourselves, but Allah doth grant His grace to such of his servants as He pleases. It is not for us to bring you an authority except as Allah permits. And on Allah let all men of faith put their trust. (14: 10-11/Z)
 

 

Multiple

 
Allah did choose Adam and Noah, the family of Abraham, and the family of ‘Imran above all people,- Offspring, one of the other: And Allah heareth and knoweth all things. (3: 33-34/Z)
 

 

We have sent thee inspiration, as We sent it to Noah and the Messengers after him: We sent inspiration to Abraham, Ismail, Isaac, Jacob and the Tribes, to Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, and Solomon, and to David We gave the Psalms. Of some apostles We have already told thee the story; of others We have not; and to Moses Allah spoke direct;- Messenger who gave good news as well as warning, that mankind, after (the  coming) of the apostles, should have no plea against Allah. For Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise. (4: 163-165/Z)
 

 

Then We sent Moses and his brother Aaron, with Our Signs and authority manifest, To Pharaoh and his Chiefs: But these behaved insolently: they were an arrogant people. (23: 45-46/Z)
 

 

And We made the son of Mary and his mother as a Sign: We gave them both shelter on high ground, affording rest and security and furnished with springs. (23: 50/Z)
 

 

That was the reasoning about Us, which We gave to Abraham (to use) against his people: We raise whom We will, degree after degree: for thy Lord is full of wisdom and knowledge. We gave him Isaac and Jacob: all (three) guided: and before him, We guided Noah, and among his progeny, David, Solomon, Job, Joseph, Moses, and Aaron: thus do We reward those who do good: And Zakariya and John, and Jesus and Elias: all in the ranks of the righteous: And Ismail and Elisha, and Jonas, and Lot: and to all We gave favour above the nations. To them) and to their fathers, and progeny and brethren: We chose them, and we guided them to a straight way. (6: 83-87/A)
 

 

And commemorate Isma’il, Elisha, and Zul-Kifl: Each of them was of the Company of the Good. (38: 48/A)
 

 

And (remember) Isma’il, Idris, and Zul-kifl, all    (men) of constancy and patience; We admitted them to Our mercy: for they were of the righteous ones. (21: 85-86/A)
 

 

And to Lut, too, We gave Judgement and Knowledge, and We saved him from the town which practised abominations: truly they were a people given to Evil, a rebellious people. (21: 74/A)

 

To the Thamud people (We sent) Salih, one of their own brethren...(7: 73/A)

 

 

 To the Madyan people We sent Shu’aib, one of their own brethren (7: 85/A)
 

 

 

Monotheism the pivot of guidance
 

 

Not an apostle did We send before thee without this inspiration sent by Us to him: that there is no god but I; therefore worship and serve Me. ( 21: 25 /A)
 

 

If they treat thy (mission) as false, so did the peoples before them (with their prophets),- the     People of Noah, and ‘Ad and Thamud; Those of Abraham and Lut; and the Companions of the Madyan People; and Moses was rejected (in the same way). But I granted respite to the Unbelievers, and (only) after that did I punish them: but how (terrible) was my rejection (of them)! How many populations have We destroyed, which were given to wrongdoing? They tumbled down on their roofs. And how many wells are lying idle and neglected, and castles lofty and well-built? (22: 42-45/A)
 

 

“.......And on God let all men of faith put their trust. No reason have we why we should not put our trust on God. Indeed He Has guided us to the Ways we (follow). We shall certainly bear with patience all the hurt you may cause us. For those who put their trust should put their trust on God.” (14: 11-12/A)
 

 

 

Messengers never despair
 

 

How many of the prophets fought (in God’s way), and with them (fought) large bands of godly men? But they never lost heart if they met with disaster in God’s way, nor did they weaken (in will) nor give in. And God Loves those who are firm and steadfast. All that they said was: “Our Lord! Forgive us our sins and anything We may have done that transgressed our duty: Establish our feet firmly, and help us against those that resist Faith.” (3: 146-147/A)
 

 

Nor would he instruct you to take angels and prophets for Lords and patrons. What! Would he bid you to unbelief after ye have bowed your will (To God in Islam)? Behold! God took the covenant of the prophets, saying: “I give you a Book and Wisdom; then comes to you an apostle, confirming what is with you; do ye believe in him and render him help.” God said: “Do you agree, and take this my Covenant as binding on you?” They said: “We agree.” He said: “Then bear witness, and I am with you among the witnesses.” If any turn back after this, they are perverted transgressors. (3: 80-82/A)
 

 

The Last Messenger
 

 

O People of the Book! Now hath come unto you, making (things) clear unto you, Our Messenger, after the break in (the series of) our apostles, lest ye should say: “There came unto us no bringer of glad tidings and no warner (from evil)”: But now hath come unto you a bringer of glad tidings and a warner (from evil). And God hath power over all things. ( 5: 19 /A)
 

 

“Those who follow the apostle, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find mentioned in their own    (scriptures),- in the law and the Gospel;- for he     commands them what is just and forbids them what is evil; he allows them as lawful what is good (and pure) and prohibits them from what is bad (and impure); He releases them from their heavy burdens and from the yokes that are upon them. So it is those who believe in him, honour him, help him, and follow the light which is sent down with him,- it is they who will prosper.” (7: 157/A)
We have not sent thee but as a universal (Messenger) to men, giving them glad tidings, and warning them (against sin)...…(34: 28/A)

 

We have sent thee as an apostle to (instruct) mankind. And enough is God for a witness.  He who obeys the Messenger, obeys God. But if any turn away, We have not sent thee to watch over their (evil deeds). (4: 79-80/A)
 

 

Mercy for all

 
We sent thee not, but as a Mercy for all creatures. Say: “What has come to me by inspiration is that your God is One God. Will ye therefore bow to His Will (in Islam)?” (21: 107-108/A)
 

 

Verily We have sent thee in truth as a bearer of glad tidings and a warner: But of thee no question shall be asked of the Companions of the Blazing Fire.           (2: 119/A)
 

 

A similar (favour have ye already received) in that We have sent among you an Messenger of your own, rehearsing to you Our Signs, and sanctifying you, and instructing you in Scripture and Wisdom, and in new knowledge. (2: 151/A)
 

 

From among themselves
 

 

Allah did confer a great favour on the believers when He sent among them an apostle from among themselves, rehearsing unto them the Signs of Allah, sanctifying them, and instructing them in Scripture and Wisdom, while, before that, they had been in manifest error. (3: 164/Z)
 

 

And thus have We, by Our Command, sent inspiration to thee: thou knewest not (before) what was   Revelation, and what was Faith; but We have made the (Qur’an) a Light, wherewith We guide such of Our servants as We will; and verily thou dost guide (men) to the Straight Way ...(42: 52/A)
 

 

It is He Who hath sent His Messenger with guidance and the Religion of Truth, to proclaim it over all religion, even though the Pagans may detest (it).  ( 9: 33 /A)
 

 

We sent not an apostle except (to teach) in the language of his (own) people, in order to make (things) clear to them. (14: 4/A)
 

 

Witness

 
O Prophet! Truly We have sent thee as a Witness, a Bearer of Glad Tidings, and Warner,- And as one who invites to God’s (grace) by His leave, and as a lamp spreading light.  Then give the Glad Tidings to the Believers, that they shall have from God a very great Bounty. And obey not (the behest) of the Unbelievers and the Hypocrites, and heed not their annoyances, but put thy Trust in God. For enough is God as a Disposer of affairs. (33: 45-48/A)
 

 

Judge
 

 

We have sent down to thee the Book in truth, that thou mightest judge between men, as guided by God. So be not (used) as an advocate by those who betray their trust...(4: 105/A)
 

 

For God hath sent down to thee the Book and wisdom and taught thee what thou Knewest not (before): And great is the Grace of God unto thee.   (4: 113/A)
 

 

The Messenger believeth in what hath been revealed to him from his Lord, as do the men of faith. Each one (of them) believeth in God, His angels, His books, and His apostles. “We make no distinction (they say) between one and another of His apostles.” (2: 285/A)
 

 

Already predicted
 

 

The People of the Book know this as they know their own sons; but some of them conceal the truth which they themselves know. The Truth is from thy Lord; so be not at all in doubt. (2: 146-147/A)
 

Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but (he is) the Messenger of God, and the Seal of the Prophets: and God has full knowledge of all things. (33: 40/A) 

 

And remember, Jesus, the son of Mary, said: “O Children of Israel ! I am the apostle of God (sent) to you, confirming the Law (which came) before me, and giving Glad Tidings of a Messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmad.” But when he came to them with Clear Signs, they said, “this is evident sorcery!” (61: 6/A)
 

 

Man with difference
 

 

Say: “I am but a man like yourselves, (but) the inspiration has come to me, that your God is one God. Whoever expects to meet his Lord, let him work righteousness, and, in the worship of his Lord, admit no one as partner. (18: 110/A)
 

 
We did send apostles before thee, and appointed for them wives and children: and it was never the part of an apostle to bring a sign except as God permitted (or commanded). For each period is a Book (revealed). ( 13: 38 /A)
 

 

Muhammad is no more than an apostle: many were the apostle that passed away before him. If he died or were slain, will ye then turn back on your heels? If any did turn back on his heels, not the least harm will he do to God. But God (on the other hand) will swiftly reward those who (serve Him) with gratitude. (3: 144/A)
We granted not to any man before thee permanent life (here): if then thou shouldst die, would they live permanently? Every soul shall have a taste of death.... (21: 34-35/A)

 

 
Messenger’s power God given
 

 

Say: “I have no power over any good or harm to myself except as God willeth. If I had knowledge of the unseen, I should have multiplied all good, and no evil should have touched me: I am but a warner, and a bringer of glad tidings to those who have faith.” (7: 188/A)
 

 

Among them are men who molest the Prophet and say, “He is (all) ear.” Say, “He listens to what is best for you: he believes in God, has faith in the Believers, and is a Mercy to those of you who believe.” But those who molest the Messenger will have a grievous penalty. (9: 61/A)
 

 

Kind
 

 

Now hath come unto you a Messenger from amongst yourselves: it grieves him that ye should perish: ardently anxious is he over you: to the Believers is he most kind and merciful. (9: 128/A)
 

 

And if the apostle were to invent any sayings in Our name, We should certainly seize him by his right hand, and We should certainly then cut off the artery of his heart: nor could any of you withhold him (from Our wrath). (69: 44-47/A)
 

 

Perfect
 

 

Or do they say, “He is possessed”? Nay, he has brought them the Truth, but most of them hate the Truth. (23: 70/A)
 

 

Similarly, no apostle came to the Peoples before them, but they said (of him) in like manner, “A sorcerer, or one possessed”! Is this the legacy they have transmitted, one to another? Nay, they are themselves a people transgressing beyond bounds!  (51: 52-53/A)
 

 

Highest Model
 

 

Nun. By the Pen and the (Record) which (men) write,- Thou art not, by the Grace of thy Lord, mad or possessed.
Nay, verily for thee is a Reward unfailing:

 

And thou (standest) on an exalted standard of character.

 

Soon wilt thou see, and they will see,
Which of you is afflicted with madness. (68: 1-6/A)
 

 

If they charge thee with falsehood, say: “My work to me, and yours to you! ye are free from responsibility for what I do, and I for what ye do!” ( 10: 41 /A)
 

 

Gentle
 

 

It is part of the Mercy of God that thou dost deal gently with them. Wert thou severe or harsh-hearted, they would have broken away from about thee: so pass over (their faults), and ask for (God’s) forgiveness for them; and consult them in affairs (of moment). Then, when thou hast taken a decision put thy trust in God. For God loves those who put their trust (in Him). (3: 159/A)
 

 

Invite (all) to the Way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious: for thy Lord knoweth best, who have strayed from His Path, and who receive guidance. (16: 125/A)
 

 

Had it been Our Will, We could have sent a warner to every centre of population. Therefore listen not to the Unbelievers, but strive against them with the utmost strenuousness with the (Qur’an).... (25: 51-52/A)
 

 

Repel evil with that which is best: We are well acquainted with the things they say. And say “O my Lord! I seek refuge with Thee from the suggestions of the Evil Ones. And I seek refuge with Thee O my Lord! lest they should come near me.” (23: 96-98/A)
 

 

So hearken not to those who deny (the Truth). Their desire is that thou shouldst be pliant: so would they be pliant. Heed not the type of despicable men,- ready with oaths, a slanderer, going about with calumnies, (habitually) hindering (all) good, transgressing beyond bounds, deep in sin, violent (and cruel),- with all that, base-born... (68: 8-13/A)
 

 

And have patience with what they say, and leave them with noble (dignity). (73: 10/A)
 

 

Rejected were the apostles before thee: with patience and constancy they bore their rejection and their wrongs, until Our aid did reach them: there is none that can alter the words (and decrees) of God... ( 6: 34 /A)
 

 

Already has Our Word been passed before (this) to our Servants sent (by Us), that they would certainly be assisted, and that Our forces,- they surely must conquer. So turn thou away from them for a little while,
 

 

And watch them (how they fare), And they soon shall see (how thou farest)! (37: 171-179/A)
 

 

Highest Journey
 

 

Glory to ((God)) Who did take His servant for a Journey by night from the Sacred Mosque to the Farthest Mosque, whose precincts We did bless,- in order that We might show him some of Our Signs.  (17: 1/A)
