People need a divine message to show them Laws of God that will guide them to the right path. Indeed, a divine message is the inspiration and the light of the world, without which the world would certainly be lifeless and man would be plunged into the darkness of ignorance and misguidance!
It is for this reason that Almighty God calls His Message a Divine Inspiration, for there is no life without it, as the Qur’aan says: “And thus We have sent to you (O Muhammad [peace be upon him]) Ruhan (an Inspiration, and a Mercy) of Our Command. You knew not what is the Book, nor what is Faith? But We have made it (this Qur’ân) a light wherewith We guide whosoever of Our slaves We will. And verily, you (O Muhammad [peace be upon him]) are indeed guiding (mankind) to the Straight Path (i.e. Allâh’s religion of Islâmic Monotheism). ” (Soorat Ash-Shooraa, 42:52)
Even though the intellect can generally distinguish between right and wrong, it cannot possibly comprehend the details of such a distinction, nor carry out acts of worship in the right manner without the dictates of revelation and the divine message.
Therefore, success and happiness can only be attained by following the Guidance of Allah’s messengers. Similarly, no accurate line of demarcation can be drawn between right and wrong without following in their footsteps. Thus, whoever rejects the Divine message will definitely lead a miserable and wretched life depending on the extent of their rejection of it.
May Allaah ease our task and crown our efforts with success.
