A Kind Prophet!!!

11th of Rabi  Al-Awwal

Suuratul Tawbah Verse 128

لَقَدْ جَآءَكُمْ رَسُولٌ مِّنْ أَنفُسِكُمْ عَزِيزٌ عَلَيْهِ مَا عَنِتُّمْ حَرِيصٌ عَلَيْكُم بِٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ رَءُوفٌ رَّحِيمٌ ﴿١٢٨

128. Verily, there has come unto you a Messenger (Muhammad ) from amongst yourselves. It grieves him that you should receive any injury or difficulty. He is anxious over you (to be rightly guided), for the believers full of pity, kind, and merciful.

***

Tafsir Ibn Kathir Volume 4, Page 553

Allaah reminds the believers that He has sent to them a Messenger from among themselves, from their kind, speaking their language. Allaah said,

عَزِيزٌ عَلَيْهِ مَا عَنِتُّمْ

It grieves him that you should receive any injury or difficulty

Whatever would cause hardship to his Ummah or be difficult for them, then it grieves him. Similarly, there is the Hadith reported through many route that the Prophet said,

«بُعِثْتُ بِالْحَنِيفِيَّةِ السَّمْحَة»

I was sent with the easy Hanifiyah (monotheism way)

An authenic Hadith mentions,

«إِنَّ هَذَا الدِّينَ يُسْر»

Verily, this religion is easy and its Law is all easy, lenient and perfect. It is easy for those whom Allah the Exalted makes it easy.

﴿حَرِيصٌ عَلَيْكُمْ﴾

He is eager for you

that you gain guidance and acquire benefits in this life and the Hereafter. Imam Ahmad recorded that `Abdullah bin Mas`ud said that the Messenger of Allah said,

«إِنَّ اللهَ لَمْ يُحَرِّمْ حُرْمَةً إِلَّا وَقَدْ عَلِمَ أَنَّهُ سَيَطَّلِعُهَا مِنْكُمْ مُطَّلِعٌ، أَلَا وَإِنِّي آخِذٌ بِحُجَزِكُمْ أَنْ تَهَافَتُوا فِي النَّارِ كَتَهَافُتِ الْفَرَاشِ أَوِ الذُّبَاب»

Verily, every matter that Allah has prohibited, He knows that some among you will breach it; but I am indeed holding you by the waist so that you do not fall in the Fire, just like butterflies and flies.

Allah’s statement next,

﴿بِالْمُؤْمِنِينَ رَءُوفٌ رَّحِيمٌ﴾

for the believers (he is) full of pity, kind, and merciful

Is similar to His other statement,

﴿وَاخْفِضْ جَنَاحَكَ لِمَنِ اتَّبَعَكَ مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ – فَإِنْ عَصَوْكَ فَقُلْ إِنِّى بَرِىءٌ مِّمَّا تَعْمَلُونَ – وَتَوكَّلْ عَلَى الْعَزِيزِ الرَّحِيمِ ﴾

And be kind and humble to the believers who follow you. Then if they disobey you, say: “I am innocent of what you do.” And put your trust in the All-Mighty, the Most Merciful (26:215-217)

Al-Ghaniyy: The (Truly) Rich!

Suuratul An’aam Verse 133

وَرَبُّكَ ٱلْغَنِىُّ ذُو ٱلرَّحْمَةِ ۚ إِن يَشَأْ يُذْهِبْكُمْ وَيَسْتَخْلِفْ مِنۢ بَعْدِكُم مَّا يَشَآءُ كَمَآ أَنشَأَكُم مِّن ذُرِّيَّةِ قَوْمٍ ءَاخَرِينَ ﴿١٣٣

133. And your Lord is Rich (Free of all wants), full of Mercy, if He will, He can destroy you, and in your place make whom He will as your successors, as He raised you from the seed of other people.

Tafsir Ibn Kathir Volume 3, Page 475.

Allah said,

﴿وَرَبُّكَ﴾

And your Lord…, (O Muhammad)

﴿الْغَنِىُّ﴾

is Al-Ghani

 

Rich, free from needing His creatures in any way or form, while they stand in need of Him in all situations,

﴿ذُو الرَّحْمَةِ﴾

full of mercy;

 

towards creation. Allah said in another Ayah (2:143),

﴿إِنَّ اللَّهَ بِالنَّاسِ لَرَءُوفٌ رَّحِيمٌ﴾

(Tuly, Allah is full of kindness, the Most Merciful towards mankind.

﴿إِن يَشَأْ يُذْهِبْكُمْ﴾

if He wills, He can destroy you. (if you defy His commandments),

﴿وَيَسْتَخْلِفْ مِن بَعْدِكُم مَّا يَشَآءُ﴾

And in your place make whom He wills as your successors, (who behave obediently),

﴿كَمَآ أَنشَأَكُمْ مِّن ذُرِّيَّةِ قَوْمٍ ءَاخَرِينَ﴾

As He raised you from the seed of other people.

and surely, He is able to do this, and it is easy for Him. And just as Allah has destroyed the earlier nations and brought their successors, He is able to do away with these generations and bring other people in their place. Allah has also said (4:133);

﴿إِن يَشَأْ يُذْهِبْكُمْ أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ وَيَأْتِ بِـاخَرِينَ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ عَلَى ذلِكَ قَدِيراً ﴾

If He wills, He can take you away, O people, and bring others. And Allah is Ever Capable over that.

﴿يأَيُّهَا النَّاسُ أَنتُمُ الْفُقَرَآءُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَاللَّهُ هُوَ الْغَنِىُّ الْحَمِيدُ – إِن يَشَأْ يُذْهِبْكُـمْ وَيَأْتِ بِخَلْقٍ جَدِيدٍ وَمَا ذَلِكَ عَلَى اللَّهِ بِعَزِيزٍ ﴾

O mankind! It is you who stand in need of Allah. But Allah is Rich (free of all needs), Worthy of all praise. If He willed, He could destroy you and bring about a new creation. And that is not hard for Allah. (35:15-17)
