Stage – 1, Verse – 151 of 286, Section –18 of 40 (Part - 2)
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Even as We have sent unto you a Messenger from among you, who reciteth unto you Our Revelations and causeth you to grow, and teacheth you the Scripture and Wisdom, and teacheth you that which ye knew not-
Kamaaa ‘arsalNaa fiikum Rasuulam-minkum yatluu ‘alaykum ‘AayaatiNaa wa yu-zakkiikum wa yu—‘allimukumul- Kitaaba wal-Hikmata wa yu-‘allimukum-maa lam takuunuu ta’-lamuun.
Which specialties and characteristics of the Last Messenger of God Almighty (glory, grace, blessings and peace be upon Him) have been described in this verse, four out of them have already been mentioned in the verse # 129, that is to say:
1. Recites the Revelations of God Almighty.
2. Instructs the people according to the Scripture.
3. Causes to learn them the Wisdom.
4. Makes them grow (Purifies them).
Now fifth specialty is being discussed in this verse that He (glory, grace, blessings and peace be upon Him) teaches you about that, which you did never know before this time.
God Almighty sent His Messengers (peace be upon Them) for different nations during different times for the guidance of human beings and arranged for them to convey the Message of the Truth. Slowly and gradually every nation overtook different groups, opposite and religious persecution, and went very far from the path of heavenly knowledge and guidance. Then God Almighty sent His Last Messenger Muhammad (glory, grace, blessings and peace be upon Him), so that a new nation be raised after becoming the former nations useless, make them justice liking with the impression of His (glory, grace, blessings and peace be upon Him) teachings and company, and so that this nation may hold the post of guidance and admonition for the entire nations of the world.
This verse indicates towards the change of Qiblah, that, it is the perfection of those blessings, series of which have already begun. Change of the Qiblah is the last ring of that chain of the blessings, the first ring of which is to send a Messenger, who would be from you. So that, He (glory, grace, blessings and peace be upon Him) may become a spring of the entire splendid blessings for you, he may cause to hear you the verses of Holy Qur’an, tell you the manners of acquiring outward and natural chastity and purity, teach you to follow the commands and instructions of the Holy Qur’an and admonish you the delicacies and principles of these orders and instructions, so that you may get superiority and excellence over all other nations by means of knowledge and acts, and they may not find any path except to accept you as Excellent, looking your knowledge and deeds.
It is clear that if these all arrangements would have not been done by the Messenger of God Almighty (glory, grace, blessings and peace be upon Him) then you would remain ignorant and you would never have known the manners to solve the problems of the life.
