اَلْحَمْدُللهِ الَّذِى هَدَنَا لِهَذَا وَمَاكُنَّا لِنَهْتَدِى لَوْ لاَ أَنْ هَدَنَاالله ُ. وَالصَّلاَةُ وَالسَّلاَمُ عَلٰى سَيْدِ اْلمُرّسَلِيْنَ. اَلذِّى بَعَثَ الله ُ رَحْمَةً لِّلْعَالَمِيْنَ وَعَلٰى اٰلِهِ وَصَحْبِهِ أَجْمَعِيْنَ أَمَّابَعْدُ.
All praises be to Allah, The Lord of the entire universe for it is He who has created us and those before us and has raised among mankind His prophets and messengers with guidance and the religion of truth for the salvation of mankind in this world and the next world.
Peace and blessing be upon the messenger of Allah, the seal of all the prophets and messengers of Allah who had been sent as a blessing and mercy for the entire worlds and also upon his blessed household and holy companions.
Thanks to Allah SWT for giving me this opportunity to deliver this important message concerning the prophets and messengers of Allah, The Almighty as guidance for mankind. May Allah SWT guides to the straight path so that we are able to see the light of truth.
O Bothers and Sisters !
In this fourth series of my message to the whole world I shall touch on the prophets and messengers of Allah The Exalted as guidance for mankind.
Today there are some people who are in doubts as to whether there is really a prophet and messenger of Allah SWT.
There are some who do not believe in the prophet and messenger of Allah SWT.
There are some who believe in the previous prophets and messengers of Allah SWT but rejected the final messenger from Allah, The Almighty.
To resolve all these controversies once and for all I shall now explain to the whole world the truth that comes from Allah, The Almighty, our Lord concerning these beliefs so that people of all nations will be able to see the truth behind all these and thus will be able to decide for themselves what course to follow.
O Brothers and Sisters !
Allah, The Almighty has sent prophets and messengers to human race from generation to generation bringing religion from Him as guidance.
Without these prophets and messengers of Allah, The Almighty, we human beings would not be able to know and never could know those matters which are divine in nature and the unseen world as for examples :
1. Is God really exist ?
2. Who is this Super Being who had created the entire universe and everything in it including us human beings ?
3. What is the name of this Super Being who is worthy of worship ?
4. How do we worship Him ?
5. What is His Religion ?
6. Is this life with or without purpose or have we been created in vain ?
7. Is there life after death ?
8. Is there really a day of resurrection where people are raised up from their graves ?
9. Is there really a day of judgment where people are assembled before Allah SWT to be judged ?
10. Is there really a day of accountability where people are accountable for their own deeds?
11. Is Paradise and Hell really exist ?
These are examples of things that are beyond human knowledge and comprehension. So Allah, The Almighty in His fathomless Mercy has raised among mankind His prophets and messengers with guidance and religion of truth to answer all those questions which are outside the realm of human knowledge and understanding so that those who believe in the prophets and messengers would be able to see the light of truth.
Some of the names of the prophets and messengers of Allah SWT had been mentioned in the previous Books of Revelations and latter in the Holy Quran as for example Prophet Adam, Noah, Abraham, Loth, Ismael, Isaq, Joseph, Moses, David, Solomon, Jesus son Mary and Muhammad son of Abdullah peace and blessing be upon them all.
All of them are human beings but not an ordinary human being and surely they are not God or sons of God. Christians claim that Jesus son of Mary is son of Allah, and at the same time he is Allah SWT himself but this is rejected by Allah SWT in the Holy Quran chapter Al-Maidah verse 72 :
لَقَدْ كَفَرَ الَّذِينَ قَالُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الْمَسِيحُ ابْنُ مَرْيَمَ ۖ وَقَالَ الْمَسِيحُ يَا بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ اعْبُدُوا اللَّهَ رَبِّي وَرَبَّكُمْ ۖ إِنَّهُ مَن يُشْرِكْ بِاللَّهِ فَقَدْ حَرَّمَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ الْجَنَّةَ وَمَأْوَاهُ النَّ ارُ ۖ وَمَا لِلظَّالِمِينَ مِنْ أَنصَارٍ ﴿٧٢
Surely, they have disbelieved who say: "Allah is the Messiah son of Mary." But the Messiah said: "O Children of Israel! Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord." Verily, whosoever sets up partners (in worship) with Allah, then Allah has forbidden Paradise to him, and the Fire will be his abode . And for the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers) there are no helpers.
Chapter At-Taubah verse 30 :
وَقَالَتِ الْيَهُودُ عُزَيْرٌ ابْنُ اللَّهِ وَقَالَتِ النَّصَارَى الْمَسِيحُ ابْنُ اللَّهِ ۖ ذَٰلِكَ قَوْلُهُم بِأَفْوَاهِهِمْ ۖ يُضَاهِئُونَ قَوْلَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِن قَبْلُ ۚ قَاتَلَهُمُ اللَّهُ ۚ أَنَّىٰ يُؤْفَكُونَ ﴿٣٠﴾
The Jews call 'Uzair a son of Allah, and the Christians call Christ the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. Allah.s curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth!
All the prophets and messengers of Allah SWT, except the Holy Prophet PBUH, were sent to their own respective people for example :
1. Prophet Noah AS was sent to his people.
As Allah S.W.T. Said in Chapter 11 Hud Verse 25 :
وَلَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَا نُوحًا إِلَى قَوْمِهِ
“And indeed We sent Nuh (Noah) to his.”
2. Prophet Moses AS was sent to the Israelites.
Chapter 61 Al-Shaff Verse 5 :
وَإِذْ قَالَ مُوسَى لِقَوْمِهِ يَا قَوْمِ لِمَ تُؤْذُونَنِي وَقَد تَّعْلَمُونَ أَنِّي رَسُولُ اللَّهِ إِلَيْكُمْ
“And (remember) when Musa (Moses) said to his people : “O my people! Why do you vex me while you know certainly that I am the Messenger of Allah to you?.”
3. Prophet Jesus AS was also sent to the Israelites.
Chapter 61 Al-Shaff Verse 6 :
وَإِذْ قَالَ عِيسَى ابْنُ مَرْيَمَ يَا بَنِيۤ إِسْرَاۤئِيلَ إِنِّي رَسُولُ اللَّهِ إِلَيْكُم مُّصَدِّقًا لِّمَا بَيْنَ يَدَيَّ مِنَ التَّوْرَاةِ وَمُبَشِّرًا بِرَسُولٍ يَأْتِي مِن بَعْدِي اسْمُهُ أَحْمَدُ فَلَمَّا جَاۤءَهُم بِالْبَيِّنَاتِ قَالُوا هَذَا سِحْرٌ مُّبِينٌ
“And (remember) when Jesus son of Mary said : “O Children of Israel! I am the Messenger of Allah unto you, confirming the Torah which came] before me and giving glad tidings of a Messenger to come after me whose name shall be Ahmad. But when he (Ahmad, i.e. Muhammad) came to them with clear proofs they said : “This is plain magic.”
4. Whereas Prophet Muhammad S.A.W. is the last prophet and he was sent for the whole human race till the Last Day as Allah SWT stated in chapter Al-Ahzab verse 40 :
مَّا كَانَ مُحَمَّدٌ أَبَاۤ أَحَدٍ مِّن رِّجَالِكُمْ وَلَكِن رَّسُولَ اللَّهِ وَخَاتَمَ النَّبِيِّنَ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيمًا
“Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but he is the Messenger of Allah and the last and seal of all the Prophets. And Allah is Ever All-Aware of everything.”
As Chapter 7 Al-A’raf Verse 158 :
قُلْ يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ إِنِّي رَسُولُ اللّهِ إِلَيْكُمْ جَمِيعًا
“Say (O Muhammad) : “O mankind! Verily, I am sent to you all as the Messenger of Allah.”
Chapter 34 Saba’ Verse 28 :
وَمَاۤ أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلاَّ كَاۤفَّةً لِّلنَّاسِ بَشِيرًا وَنَذِيرًا وَلَكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لاَ يَعْلَمُونَ
“And We have not sent you (O Muhammad) except as a giver of glad tidings and a warner to all mankind but most of men know not.”
From these verses of the Holy Quran it is very clear that the Holy Prophet PBUH was not only sent to his own people, the Arabs but also he was sent to all human race till Doomsday for there will be no prophet after him.
Since the Holy Prophet PBUH was sent to all mankind, therefore people of all nations today are the ummah or people of the Holy Prophet PBUH and they can never be the people of the Prophet Moses AS or the people of the Prophet Jesus son of Mary for both were sent to the children of Israel and moreover their times had lapsed. But the people of the Book have accused the Holy Prophet PBUH with all sorts of dirty accusations and allegations when the learned among them knew the Holy Prophet PBUH as they knew their own son as Allah SWT disclosed it in chapter Al-Baqarah verse 146 :
الَّذِينَ ءَاتَيْنٰهُمُ الْكِتٰبَ يَعْرِفُونَهُ كَمَا يَعْرِ فُونَ أَبْنَآءَهُمْ وَإِنَّ فَرِيقًا مِّنْهُمْ لَيَكْتُمُونَ الْحَقَّ وَهُمْ يَعْلَمُونَ
“ Those to whom We have given earlier Scripture ( The People of The Book ) know this ( Muhammad ) as much as they know their own son, but a party of them conceal the truth knowingly ”.
They knew the Holy Prophet PBUH as they knew their own son because his name and attributes were written in both scriptures as stated in chapter Al-Araf verse 157 :
الَّذِينَ يَتَّبِعُونَ الرَّسُولَ النَّبِىَّ اْلأُمِّىَّ الَّذِى يَجِدُونَهُ مَكْتُوبًا عِندَهُمْ فِى التَّوْرٰةِ وَاْلإِنْجِيلِ يَأْمُرُهُم بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْههُمْ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ
“ Those who follow the messenger, the unlettered prophet, whom they find written in their own scriptures, The Torah and The Gospel, he enjoins on them what is good and forbids them from what is evil.
Because of what were written in both scriptures the learned among the people of the Book knew very well that the Holy Prophet PBUH is of noble characters and Allah SWT confirmed it in chapter Al-Qalam verse 4 :
وَإِنَّكَ لَعَلى خُلُقٍ عَظِيمٍ
“And verily, you (O Muhammad) are on an exalted (standard of) character.”
Despite their knowledge of the Holy Prophet PBUH the learned among the Jews and Christians have concealed this fact from the common people and had it omitted from both scriptures. Why did they do it, please ask sincerely the rabbis and the bishops in Tel Aviv and Vatican because they know the answer very well. Allah swt disclosed this fact in chapter Ali Imran verse 71 :
يَا أَهْلَ الْكِتَابِ لِمَ تَلْبِسُونَ الْحَقَّ بِالْبَاطِلِ وَتَكْتُمُونَ الْحَقَّ وَأَنتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ ﴿٧١﴾
O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians): "Why do you mix truth with falsehood and conceal the truth while you know?"
Chapter Al-Maidah verse 15 :
يَا أَهْلَ الْكِتَابِ قَدْ جَاءَكُمْ رَسُولُنَا يُبَيِّنُ لَكُمْ كَثِيرًا مِّمَّا كُنتُمْ تُخْفُونَ مِنَ الْكِتَابِ وَيَعْفُو عَن كَثِيرٍ ۚ قَدْ جَاءَكُم مِّنَ اللَّهِ نُورٌ وَكِتَابٌ مُّبِينٌ ﴿١٥﴾
O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Now has come to you Our Messenger (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) explaining to you much of that which you used to hide from the Scripture and pass over (i.e. leaving out without explaining) much. Indeed, there has come to you from Allah a light (Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) and a plain Book (this Qur'an).
Because of what the learned among the people of the Book have done to both scriptures, the Jews and the Christians today not only they don’t believe in the Holy Prophet PBUH but are making fun of him with all sorts of accusations and allegations, thus rejecting the Holy Quran and the religion of Islam.
Due to their ignorance they don’t realize that whom they accused is in fact their own prophet who had been sent to them also and that they have rejected the Holy Quran which had been revealed as guidance for them also and finally have rejected Islam, the Religion of all the prophets and messengers of Allah SWT.
The Prophets and Messengers are like gems of necklace which are joined in continuum with one (1) task, i.e. to bring and propagate the religion of Allah to the human race. To disbelieve and to disobey The Holy Prophet Muhammad S.A.W. is the same as to disbelieve and disobey the previous Prophets and Messengers. This is why all the muslims must believe in all the previous prophets and messengers as what is enjoined on them by Allah SWT in Chapter 2 Al-Baqarah Verse 285 :
كُلٌّ آمَنَ بِاللَّهِ وَمَلآئِكَتِهِ وَكُتُبِهِ وَرُسُلِهِ لاَ نُفَرِّقُ بَيْنَ أَحَدٍ مِّن رُّسُلِهِ
“Each one believes in Allah, His Angels, His Books, and His Messengers. They say : We make no distinction between one another of His Messengers.”
Chapter Ali-Imran Verse 84 :
قُلْ آمَنَّا بِاللَّهِ وَمَاۤ أُنزِلَ عَلَيْنَا وَمَاۤ أُنزِلَ عَلَى إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَإِسْمَاعِيلَ وَإِسْحَقَ وَيَعْقُوبَ وَالأَسْبَاطِ وَمَاۤ أُوتِيَ مُوسَى وَعِيسَىٰ وَالنَّبِيُّونَ مِن رَّبِّهِمْ لاَ نُفَرِّقُ بَيْنَ أَحَدٍ مِّنْهُمْ وَنَحْنُ لَهُ مُسْلِمُونَ
“Say (O Muhammad) : “We believe in Allah and in what has been sent down to us and what was sent down to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob and As-Asbat [the offspring of the twelve sons of Ya’qub (Jacob)] and what was given to Moses, Jesus and the Prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between one another among them and to Him (Allah) we have submitted (in Islam).”
All the prophets and messengers of Allah SWT beginning from Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaq, Joseph, Moses, David, Solomon and Jesus son of Mary had conveyed and taught the same religion ie the religion of Allah SWT which is finally perfected and completed in the prophethood of the Holy prophet Muhammad SAW and named as Islam. To disbelieve in the religion conveyed by the Holy Prophet PBUH is to disbelieve in the religion conveyed by all the prophets and messengers.
Thus it was narrated by Abi Hurairah RA that indeed Rasullullah S.A.W. said :
وَالَّذِى نَفْس مُحَمّدٍ بِيَدِهِ لاَ يَسْمَعُ بِىْ أَحَدٌ مِنْ هَذِهِ اْلأُمَّةِ يَهُوْدِىٍّ وَلاَنَصْرَانِىٍّ ثُمَّ يَمُوْتُ وَلَمْ يُؤْمِنْ بِالَّذِى أُرْسِلْتُ بِهِ إِلاَّ كَانَ مِنْ أَصْحَابِ النَّارِ.
“By Allah S.W.T. in whose Hands is the soul of Muhammad there is no one from amongst the Jews and Christians who have heard about me and subsequently die without having faith in what I bring (Islam) unless he is one of the inhabitants of Hell.”
O Brothers and Sisters !
Since the Holy Prophet is the last and seal of all prophets and messengers of Allah SWT who has been sent to all mankind, therefore people of all nations today have no choice but to believe in the Holy Prophet PBUH if they desire peace and happiness in this world and in the Next world.
Since this world belongs to Allah SWT alone, the Holy Quran must become its constitution i.e this world must be ruled and governed by the Divine Laws and Regulations contained in it so that there will be peace, justice, equality, harmony, love and happiness prevailing throughout the whole world.
To find out the truth please do not hesitate to read the Holy Quran because it has been revealed as guidance for mankind. This is the only way of finding the truth which had been concealed by the learned among the people of the Book, the Jews and the Christians.
It is time now that you must search and find out the truth before it is too late. If you don’t, then you may die as a sinner or disbeliever or as an atheist, a polytheist or as a infidel without realizing it.
Let us all now return to Allah, The Almighty in repentance and in obedience so that we are all safe from the dangers of this world and the Next world. This is what Allah SWT wants us to do as stated in chapter Az-Zumar verse 54 :
وَأَنِيبُوا إِلَى رَبِّكُمْ وَأَسْلِمُوا لَهُ مِن قَبْلِ أَن يَأْتِيَكُمُ الْعَذَابُ ثُمَّ لاَ تُنصَرُونَ
“And return in repentance and in obedience with true Faith to your Lord and submit to Him before the torment comes upon you, (and) then you will not be helped.”
Let us all pray to Allah SWT to our Lord for salvation in this world and next world.
O Allah, our Lord, the Lord of all creations ! Please forgive our sins and our wrongs. We pray that You always guides so that we are all safe from all dangers in this world and the Next.
O Allah, our Lord ! We seek Your guidance and assistance so that we are able to perform good deeds which You pleases.
O Allah, our Lord ! To those who are sick please grant them good health, to those who are in distress and in need please grant them aid and provision, to those who are in difficulties please relieve them from their burden and hardship.
O Allah, our Lord ! To those who have not embraced Your religion please give them guidance so that they will embrace Your religion. And for those have gone astray please lead them back to the right path that You pleases.
O Allah, Our Lord ! Please grant us peace and happiness in this world and in the next world.
Hopefully the whole of mankind will be safe in this world and in the Next World.
