A reminder to the Prophet Muhammed, peace and blessings be upon him, of those messengers that came to previous nations

 I take refuge with Allaah from the accursed devil.  

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَـنِ الرَّحِيمِ 

  Bismillah-ir-Rahman-ir-Raheem: In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.  

  Welcome to my blog and praise the Magnificent Lord as you enter: Allahu Akbar: Allah is the Greatest .

  May the Peace and Blessing of Allah Azza wa Jal, our Lord Glorified and Praised be He, be upon our beloved  Prophet, his Family, and Companions.

A reminder to the Prophet Muhammed, peace and blessings be upon him, of those messengers that came to previous nations.

تَاللَّهِ لَقَدْ أَرْسَلْنَآ إِلَى أُمَمٍ مِّن قَبْلِكَ فَزَيَّنَ لَهُمُ الشَّيْطَـِّنُ أَعْمَالَهُمْ فَهُوَ وَلِيُّهُمُ الْيَوْمَ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ

(63. By Allah, We indeed sent (Messengers) to the nations before you, but Shaytan made their deeds seeming fair to them. So today he is their helper, and theirs will be a painful torment. )

وَمَآ أَنْزَلْنَا عَلَيْكَ الْكِتَـبَ إِلاَّ لِتُبَيِّنَ لَهُمُ الَّذِى اخْتَلَفُواْ فِيهِ وَهُدًى وَرَحْمَةً لِّقَوْمٍ يُؤْمِنُونَ

(64. And We have not revealed the Book to you, except that you may clearly explain to them those things in which they differ, and (as) a guidance and a mercy for a people who believe.)

وَاللَّهُ أَنزَلَ مِنَ الْسَّمَآءِ مَآءً فَأَحْيَا بِهِ الاٌّرْضَ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهَآ إِنَّ فِى ذلِكَ لآيَةً لِقَوْمٍ يَسْمَعُونَ

(65. And Allah sends water down from the sky, then He revives the earth with it after its death. Surely that is a sign for people who listen.)

Surah 16 An Nahl Verse 63-65

Tafsir Ibn Kathir

Allah says, `He sent Messengers to the nations of the past, and they were rejected. You, O Muhammad, have an example in your brothers among the Messengers, so do not be distressed by your people’s rejection. As for the idolators’ rejection of the Messengers, the reason for this is that the Shaytan made their deeds attractive to them.’

(So today he (Shaytan) is their helper,) meaning they will be suffering punishment while Shaytan is their only helper, and he cannot save them, so they have no one to answer their calls for help, and theirs is a painful punishment.

Then Allah says to His Messenger that He has revealed the Book to him to explain the truth to mankind in matters which they dispute over. So the Qur’an is a decisive arbitrator for every issue that they argue about.

(and (as) a guidance) meaning, for their hearts.

(and a mercy) meaning, for the one who adheres to it.

(for a people who believe.) Just as Allah causes the Qur’an to bring life to hearts that were dead from disbelief, so He brings the earth to life after it has died, by sending down water from the sky.

(Surely that is a sign for people who listen.) meaning those who understand the words and their meanings.
