  • 26. “  Whoever receives guidance, receives it for his own benefit: who goes astray doth so to his own loss: no bearer of burdens can bear the burden of another: nor would We visit with Our Wrath until We had sent a messenger (to give warning).   When We decide to destroy a population, We (first) send a definite order to those among them who are given the good things of this life and yet transgress; so that the word is proved true against them: then We destroy them utterly.” ( Qur’an: al-Isra: 17:15-16 ) All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)

    • Everyone of us has certain basic questions within ourselves:
    • “ Why have we been created?”
    • “ What is the purpose of my being here in this world?”
    • “ Why do people die?”
    • “ Does it end here?”
    • “ Where will we go to after death?” ... etc.
    All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  • 28.
    • Some may ignore these questions, yet they are still in us and we will have to seek the Truth regarding this matter – sooner or later.
    • Man’s limited knowledge of Reality, would not be able to fathomed this mystery.
    All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  • 29.
    • Only Allah s.w.t. the Creator of every creation knows the truth and Reality of our existence, the reason for our being created and our destiny.
    • Ever since Adam a.s ., mankind has been promised by Allah, guidance from Him. This is through His sending of Prophets and Messengers from Him.

    • In life, we already do acknowledge a category of people who discover (physical) “ Laws ” in nature and regard them as reliable and their findings learnt, applied and continue to be taught. These are the people gifted with insights and inspired with knowledge of the physical world. We called them “ Scientists ”.
    All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  • 31.
    • Yet there is another category of people, who came in different place and time, yet all claimed to receive Divine communication, asserted similar universal message of God, of man’s moral obligation, of the life in Hereafter etc.

    • Yet there is another category of people, who came in different place and time, yet all claimed to receive Divine communication, asserted similar universal message of God, of man’s moral obligation, of the life in Hereafter etc.
    • They delivered a message which transcend knowledge of this physical world, inviting mankind towards Faith in the One God and warning of the life after death. These were the “ Prophets .”
    All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  • 33.
    • The word “ Nabi ” means “prophet” refers to a male person who receives divine inspiration, to assist them in guiding the people based upon code of life which had already been conveyed by earlier Messengers ( Rasul ).
    • Word “ Rasul ” means a “Messenger”, it refers to a “ Nabi ” who were tasked to convey a new message, code of life to the people, complementing and superseding what had came before.
    All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)

    • So not every “ Nabi ” is a “ Rasul ”; whereas all “ Rasul ” must also be a “ Nabi ”.
    • According to a tradition, Allah has sent 124,000 Prophets ( Anbiya’ ).
