As Salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu


وَجَاءَ مِنْ أَقْصَى الْمَدِينَةِ رَجُلٌ يَسْعَىٰ قَالَ يَا قَوْمِ اتَّبِعُوا الْمُرْسَلِينَ

“And a man came running from the outskirts of the city saying,
‘Oh my people, follow the messengers!”

(Surah Yaseen 36:20)


The bravery of this man never ceases to amaze me, every time I read this story.

This is a unique story in Surah Yaseen in which Allah does not mention the names of any of the people involved. The focus is solely of the lessons. The story begins with two messengers being sent to a city. When the people did not believe them, Allah sent a third messenger.

Yet still the people persisted in their disbelief, except for one man, who urgently and passionately warned his people to obey the messengers and follow the true religion.

Think about what you would do if your entire city were violently opposed to the truth and you were the sole believer amongst them?

Thinking about that makes us value this man’s bravery even more.

Eventually, he was martyred and even then, he wished his people could see what Allah had rewarded him with in Paradise so that perhaps they too would believe.

Such was his concern for his people that even after they killed him, he still wished they would believe and be saved from the Hellfire. Ibn Abbas said that this showed his sincerity to the people when he called them to obey the messengers. (Tafsir Ibn Kathir)
