Manna – {(He) did acts of kindness}, the words “man, yamunnu, ‘imtanaan, mannat etc. are from the same origin. In the Holy Qur’an, it is only one likeness, which Allah Almighty has spoken about His favor conferred on His servants. It is the greatest kindness of Allah Almighty upon the humankind that He sent a man like other men as His Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam). It is easy for the human beings to sit near him, to talk with him, to learn the Word (Qur’an) of Allah Almighty from him (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) and to reap the benefits of each type of his blessings. The people know very well the morality, honesty, trust, sincerity, purity, mercy and circumstances of this Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam). When they observe the miracles appearing from the person, who belongs to their own tribe and nation, it becomes easy for them to believe in him. Even if any demon or Angel (peace be upon him) had come as messenger, seeing his miracles, the people could have pretended: He do not belong to our class (mankind). Therefore, his morality and deeds are not follow-able for us. So, Allah Almighty sent a humankind as His Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam), who has good moral character, is merciful, mild and affectionate, from whom they can get bounty frankly. Allah Almighty has bestowed four basic excellences, which have already been described in Surah Baqarah (The Cow):
 
1.  The Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) recites the Revelations of Allah Almighty and causes to hear the people by reciting, apparent meanings of which (Revelations) are able to be understood very easily by the people of the Arab as the Arabic was their own language.

2.  He (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) purifies the people from sins, evils, idol-worshipomg and polytheism. Removing their dirt, he (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) cleanses their hearts.

3.  He teaches the Scripture of Allah Almighty. Where it seems difficult to understand by the people, he (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) removes the doubts by clearing its meanings.
 
4.  He (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) teaches knowledge of Wisdom to the people, how to reach the bottom line, explains the secrets, signs and deep matters of the Holy Qur’an.

The Messenger (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) of Allah Almighty formed the Arab nation as spiritual guide and master of the entire world with his love and teaching, which had been drowned in ignorance and astray, which had no perfection or excellence of the world.
