In The Name of Allah-SWT the Most Gracious, The Most Merciful

And We-SWT created the heaven by Our-SWT Omnipotence. Its every quality is bestowed by Us-SWT . And We-SWT prepared the earth as a habitat for mankind, and enriched it with countless treasures to cater for every human need. Then the system of procreation, its intricacies; the creation of everything in pairs, the unique male and female features and constant increase in progeny are all bare facts for the mankind to take heed and acknowledge His-SWT Magnificence.


O' mankind! Flee away from defiance, Satanic deceptions and whispers of the soul, towards Allah-SWT, as I am Allah-SWT ’s Messenger-SW, forewarning you on the sequel of these evils much ahead of time. And do not ever ascribe any partners to Allaah-SWT as everything bears witness to His-SWT Unity. I am warning you against the evils' of polytheism just as the earlier Prophets had done. The preceding nations were also blessed with Allah-SWT ’s Messengers but they labelled them as magicians and lunatics.  The contemporary infidels are now behaving with the Holy Prophet-SW in similar manner, as if bequeathed by their predecessors. The reason for a similarity in response is the common guilt of rebellion. The Holy Prophet-SW need not pay any heed as he has done his job by conveying Allah-SWT ’s Message. He-SW may however continue to admonish them as required by his-SW Office. The burden of denial lies with them, for admonition can only be availed by the believers.


And We-SWT have created the Jinn and the mankind to obey Us-SWT in confession of Our-SWT Magnificence. In other words, everyone is given the inherent capacity to obey but is not forced into it by virtue of genesis. Rather mankind is given the freedom to decide whether to utilize this capacity or to ruin it by a denial. This applies to all their worldly affairs, wherein they choose to obey Him-SWT or rebel. And Allaah-SWT is in no need of any assistance, unlike a master who hopes to benefit from his slaves He-SWT is the Bestower, the Most Absolute in Power and Independent while everything totally depends on Him-SWT . Every denier will meet the same fate as the preceding infidels. So they need not hurry, as the end will not be pleasant when they will ruefully witness their destruction on the Promised Day of Qayamah
