The disbelievers wonder at a human being sent as a messenger

I take refuge with Allaah, the Exalted, 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 Blessings of Allah Azza wa Jal, our Lord Glorified and Praised be He, be upon our beloved  Prophet, his Family, and Companions.

The disbelievers wonder at a human being sent as a messenger.

الر تِلْكَ ءايَـتُ الْكِتَـبِ الْحَكِيمِ

(1. Alif-Lam-Ra. These are the verses of the Book (the Qur’an) Al-Hakim.)

أَكَانَ لِلنَّاسِ عَجَبًا أَنْ أَوْحَيْنَآ إِلَى رَجُلٍ مِّنْهُمْ أَنْ أَنذِرِ النَّاسَ وَبَشِّرِ الَّذِينَ ءامَنُواْ أَنَّ لَهُمْ قَدَمَ صِدْقٍ عِندَ رَبِّهِمْ قَالَ الْكَـفِرُونَ إِنَّ هَـذَا لَسَـحِرٌ مُّبِينٌ 

 (2. Is it a wonder for mankind that We have sent Our revelation to a man from among themselves (saying): “Warn mankind, and give good news to those who believe that they shall have with their Lord the rewards of their good deeds” (But) the disbelievers say: “This is indeed an evident sorcerer!”)

Surah 10 Yunus Verse 1-2

Tafsir Ibn Kathir

The isolated letters in the beginning of this Surah, as well as in others, have been previously discussed at the beginning of Surat Al-Baqarah. Allah said:

(These are the verses of the Book (the Qur’an) Al-Hakim.) This indicates that these are verses of the Qur’an, in which the wisdom of judgment is clear.

Allah rebukes the attitude of the disbelievers with the words,

(Is it a wonder for mankind…) They have always found it strange that Allah would send Messengers to them from among mankind. Allah also tells us about other people from previous nations who said,

(Shall mere men guide us) (64:6) Hud and Salih said to their people:

(Do you wonder that there has come to you a reminder from your Lord through a man from among you.) (7:63) Allah also told us what the disbelievers from Quraysh said:

(Has he made the gods into one God Verily, this is a curious thing!) (38:5) Ad-Dahhak reported Ibn `Abbas that he said: “When Allah sent Muhammad as a Messenger, most of the Arabs denied him and his message and said: Allah is greater than sending a human Messenger like Muhammad. ” Ibn `Abbas said, “So Allah revealed:

(Is it a wonder for mankind…)” Allah’s statement;

(that they shall have with their Lord the rewards of their good deeds) Scholars have differed over the meaning of the reward for the good deeds in this Ayah:

(and give good news to those who believe that they shall have with their Lord the rewards of their good deeds.) `Ali bin Abi Talhah reported that Ibn `Abbas said about this Ayah, “Eternal happiness has been written for them.” Al-`Awfi reported that Ibn `Abbas said: “It is the good reward for what they have done.” Mujahid said: “It is their good deeds — their prayers, fasting, charity, and glorification.” He then said, “And Muhammad will intercede for them.” Allah said:

((But) the disbelievers say: “This is indeed an evident sorcerer!”) This means that the disbelievers said this although Allah has sent a Messenger from among themselves to them, a man of their own race as a bearer of good news and as a warner. But they are the liars in saying that.
