Wisdom of mankind is sufficient to inquire into qualities of Islam

Verse – 7 of 165, Section – 1 of 20 (Part - 7)

BisMIllaahir-Rahmaanir-Rahiim

In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Had We sent down unto Thee (Muhammad) (actual) writing upon parchment, so that they could feel it with their hands, those who disbelieve would have said: This is naught else than evident magic.                   
Wa law  nazzalnaa  ‘alayka  Kitaaban-  fii  qir-taasin  fala-masuuhu  bi-‘aydiihim  laqaa-lal-laziina  kafaruuu  ‘in  haazaaa  ‘illaa  sihrum-mubiin.              
                                                                                                             

Lesson

The Sayings of the Messenger of Allaah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) were totally disagreeable to the people of Makkah. It was unacceptable for them that the people listen to and follow Him (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him). They used to give Him (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) orders of various sorts to frustrate in one way or the other to make Him bound again of old customs in practice like themselves.

It was not sanctioned by Allaah Almighty that the people should be admitted in the Religion Islam by showing them miracles and supernatural powers, and terrifying them or fulfill their commands, because Islam is a natural religion and own wisdom of the human being is sufficient to inquire into its qualities.

Once, they said: Bring down a written upon parchment Book duly caused to be lifted by Angels of the heaven (peace be upon Them) and put it before us, then we shall believe that You are really a Messenger of Allaah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him). They have been replied in this verse.

It is commanded: Suppose, if We send down actual Book, written upon parchment duly caused to be lifted by the Angels (peace be upon Them) and they observe it coming down with their open eyes, even they satisfy themselves by feeling it with their hands that really it is a Book, which is not a game of only confinement of eyes, even then, they will not believe, because their such commands are not for removing their doubts. Moreover, their aim is to make the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) frustrated, so that He may be quiet spontaneously.

Then Allaah Almighty says: If You (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) did as they wished, even then they have a lot of impostures not to believe. At least, their pretense that, this Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) is a magician, is ready every time for their immediate saying.

It is evident that the Religion Islam was not for the time being, that the people were admitted contrary to the custom by showing them miracles, but It guides clearly the human being for the entire deeds, which are necessary to be done during the life time in the world (forever), in the light of Holy Qur’aan, because Islam has A Complete Code in every field of Life. Now that person will repent, who will do contrary to It.

Lesson
Holy Qur’aan desires to obliterate the polytheism (belief in a plurality of God Almighty) in the world. Adoration of Allah Almighty – prayer, a fast, pilgrimage and paying the poor-due (Zakaat) has been prescribed for the purpose that the human being should remain inclined unto Allah Almighty, and should never consider that any other can supply his wants. Reflect in the previous verses. It seems clearly that the humankind is responsible himself of going astray from the Path of Allah Almighty. He wants to indemnity of his weakness with the help of felt things. His conjecture produces before him his own form as an incapable, friendless and helpless; on one side; and on the other; it terrifies him from magnificence of such things which are seen apparently as pompous and exalted. He co…

72.  But if ye are averse I have asked of you no wage. My wage is the concern of Allah only, and I am commanded to be of those who surrender (unto Him).  72. Fa-‘in  tawallay-tum  famaa  sa-‘altukum-min-  ‘ajr.  ‘In  ‘ajri-ya  ‘illaa  ‘alAllaahi  wa  ‘umirtu  ‘an  ‘akuuna  minal-Mus-limiin.       
Commentary
It has been explained: after that, Prophet Noah (peace be upon him) said to his people! I do not demand wage of my work from you. God preserve you from it. I perform my duty only for the Cause of Allah Almighty and do not want anything from you. Only He is my Befriender and Patron.
After it, it is obvious that neither I fear your pomp and show, influence, wickedness or intelligence, and nor am I seeker of any kind of subsistence of life from you. And I have never devised that I should r…
