|Subject: A Messenger has come to you ( Surah An-Nisa’ 4: 170) Thu Apr 04, 2019 4:56 pm|| |
A Messenger has come to you O mankind! Verily, there has come to you the Messenger with the truth from your Lord, so believe in him, it is better for you.
Surah An-Nisa’ 4: 170
This Ayah means, Muhammad has come to you with guidance, the religion of truth and clear proof from Allah. Therefore, believe in what he has brought you and follow him, for this is better for you. Allah then said, But if you disbelieve, then certainly to Allah belongs all that is in the heavens and the earth.
Allah is far too rich than to need you or your faith, and no harm could ever affect Him because of your disbelief. Allah said in another Ayah, And Musa said: "If you disbelieve, you and all on earth together, then verily, Allah is Rich (Free of all needs), Owner of all praise.'' (14:8)
Allah said here, And Allah is Ever All-Knowing,
He knows those who deserve to be guided, and He will guide them. He also knows those who deserve deviation, and He leads them to it, All-Wise
in His statements, actions, legislation and all that He decrees. Source: Tafsir ibn Kathir (Abridged)
