“Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth is exalting Allah, the Sovereign, the Pure, the Exalted in Might, the Wise. It is He who has sent among the unlettered a Messenger from themselves reciting to them His verses and purifying them and teaching them the Book and wisdom – although they were before in clear error.”
– Surah Al Jumuah, verses 1 and 2
Nouman Ali Khan delves deep into the meaning of these verses and which is aimed at the Noble Prophet ﷺ.
This verse begins with four of the Names of Allah – Al Malik, Al Quddoos, Al Azeez and Al Hakeem. After describing His attributes, He goes on to elaborate that He has appointed Muhammad ﷺ who is unlettered but he has to recite His Verses unto them and purify them, teach them the law (what is allowed and what is not) and then teach them the wisdom.
What is the proof that Allah had sent the Noble Prophet of the Islamic faith ﷺ? The validation is the Qur’an which gives proof of this.
The Messenger of Allah ﷺ recorded a testimony on the Day of Judgement – the Qur’an was abandoned. What does this mean? The Qur’an which came for the purposes mentioned above and we as an Ummah have failed to adapt or abide by any of these purposes.
