11 // Lesson eleven

The last of the prophets

His Holiness Muhammad bin Abdullah was the last of the prophets. At the age of forty, he was chosen by the Lord to carry out a prophetic mission. According to history, he never bowed down to idols in his entire life and never for a moment refused God.

Before leaving with the prophetic mission, he constantly bowed down and praised Allah in certain periods of the year in the cave of Hara.

He received the Lord’s mission and divine laws from God at a time when humanity was engulfed in anarchy, bloody fratricidal wars, and fanaticism and invented legends ruled over people’s consciousness.

His Eminence announced to the people about his prophetic mission and presented many miracles and testimonies to prove his prophecy.

Among his miracles, one miracle was very life-giving and worthy of attention, which, in the sense of proof of his prophetic mission, remains in force to this day.

This ever-living miracle is the all-merciful Koran, which still shines like a bright sun in the sky of humanity and illuminates the hearts of people with its rays.

The Koran to this day declares in a loud voice:

– I was not brought to you by a simple person and I am not the fruit of human mind and I was introduced by a prominent person who has a connection with the divine world and the Creator of this world and Allah sent him to you to guide you on the path of truth.

The Prophet of Islam said:

-Oh people! I am chosen by the Lord God for prophecy and this Qur’an is a living testimony of my prophetic mission. If you doubt these words, then all together try to create at least one surah similar to the surahs in the Qur’an. If you succeed in this, then you can be like me and not accept my prophecy. If you do not manage to do this, which of course is not feasible, then know that I am a mediator between Allah and His creations, a prophet and a messenger of God and sent with that. to direct you to good deeds and perfection.

In those days, all orators, writers and poets, all masters of eloquence, no matter how hard they tried, could not create at least one verse similar to the Koran, but they also admitted their helplessness and inability. From that time to this day, although the enemies of Islam used all kinds of means against Islam, they could not resist the heavenly Book of Muslims.

The Koran is an eternally living miracle

The Koran is a miracle not only in the sense of eloquence, beauty of presentation, beauty of word combinations and spiritual attractiveness, but also in many other aspects it proves its miraculous effect. The conclusion to the above can be summarized as follows:

1 All historians are unanimous in the fact that the prophet of Islam was a person who did not receive an education and did not learn literacy from anyone until the age of forty, when he was chosen by God for prophecy. At the same time, in the Koran, the great prophet expressed the history of many prophets. Of course, the expression of the history of the predecessors in itself cannot be considered a miracle, but in view of the fact. that the history of the predecessors was described in the books of Jews and Christians (in the Old and New Testaments), we can compare this chapter of the Koran (that is, the history of the prophets) with the written monuments of the past and new centuries and be convinced of the heavenly source of the book “Koran”. Because, when we turn to the old and new versions of Christian and Jewish origin, we can notice that their authors, in view of their ignorance, reflected the history of God’s prophets. who were the greatest teachers and the purest people in the entire history of mankind, in fanatical and invented forms and in such a form that they distorted the reality that in these books of the prophets the Lord is presented even below ordinary people. But when we turn to the all-merciful Koran, we can notice that the history of these prophets is expressed in such a way that it can be a very useful and creative lesson for everyone. That is why no one can claim that the prophet of Islam took the theme of the Koran from the heavenly Books of Jews and Christians and presented it to people in the form of the Koran.

When the Qur’an teaches the history of the prophets, it points to a number of truths and moral stories and teaches their history without any fanaticism and with the preservation of the truth. If the sources of the prophet of Islam in his interpretation of the Koran were not based on divine revelation, he would have been engulfed in the same fanaticism in his interpretation as the writers of the Torah and the Gospel and other Arab writers, and the history of the prophets would have been full of lies and fanaticism.

You can compare the story of Adam and Eve, Abraham, Jacob and Jesus, described in the Torah, the Gospels, as well as in the Koran, and see the truth of this statement. This comparison proves that the Prophet of Islam understood these truths through divine revelation. These stories in the books of the era of antiquity and the new era are described so disgustingly that the pen is ashamed to attribute them to divine educators. At the same time, this topic is explained in the best way in the Qur’an, including scientific and moral truths. 2-Other ways to prove the miraculous influence of the Qur’an are the laws adopted in the Qur’an. These laws are so strong, stable and precisely calculated that the passage of time and the change of various social formations could not harm them. The Qur’an offered humanity a special economic system that could benefit everyone

times to meet people’s demands. If at least one Islamic economic principle of prohibition of interest is followed, many class contradictions will be eliminated.

An illiterate person can never bring to the people an economic system even half correctly founded, let alone bring a system that is absolutely correct, which would not only not suffer any harm as a result of the emergence of other systems, but also the principle of this system was approved by the scientists of that time and even gave his followers (if they were observed) importance and greatness.

The Qur’an distributes wealth fairly in society to such an extent that if its decrees and orders are followed, hunger and poverty will forever be eradicated from society.

To establish peace in the society, the Qur’an has brought such strong criminal laws that can guarantee the peace and well-being of the members of the society.

Military law and the principle of army organization, Islamic military programs are so progressive that they even consider and take into account the rights and honor of the enemy.

And, finally, Islamic jurisprudence is so broad that it takes into account all aspects of a person’s life from the day of birth to death, and for everything, whether insignificant or small, it provides certain laws.

Could any illiterate person in such a situation, full of ignorance and savagery, without divine help and connection with the Lord of the worlds, imagine such programs and such reasonable laws for mankind?

The superiority of Islam and the miraculousness of the Koran do not end with the above-mentioned questions, because there are many other testimonies that make it clear that “the bearer of the Koran is a leader and a divine teacher, and his programs are heavenly, divine.

Imam Riza said:

-My ancestor, Imam Sadik, was asked: “Why, the wider the spread of the Koran, the more familiar it appears, and as it is read and taught in schools, it not only does not age, but on the contrary, every day everything becomes more flourishing and more new?” Imam Sadyk replied:

“This is because the Qur’an was not sent for a certain time and not for a certain people and therefore remains new and flourishing at all times.”

Yes, if we establish the Qur’an as the program of our life’s journey, then, without a doubt, our happiness and perfection will be guaranteed, and just as in the initial periods of Islam, Muslims under the cover of the Qur’an achieved greatness in a short time, we can also find the lost greatness, but , unfortunately Muslims have forgotten the Koran and as a result the world of Muslims is what you see it as.
