8. Allah did not reveal anything
to a human being

The Mushrikin, with vague and vain arguments designed to overthrow the truth and a stubborn refusal to see it, claimed: (Nothing did Allah send down to any human being),1 although close to them in the Arabian Peninsula lived People of Scripture, the Jews, whom they acknowledged to be followers of a Divine Book, the Torah.

Such a claim – in the past or present – could only be made by those who do not esteem Allah as is due to Him, nor understand the Generosity of Allah, His Kindness, Mercy, and Justice.

Allah, the Most Kind, Ever-Merciful, and All-Wise, would not leave man alone when He created him. He knows his innermost secrets and outward deeds, strengths and weaknesses, abilities and inabilities, and his need to resort to a just balance to weigh with it his words and deeds, beliefs and ideals, systems and laws to see whether they prove right or wrong, true or false.

Allah U knows that the mind He has given man will be subject to internal pressures from wants, cravings, and inclinations. To man is entrusted the powers of the earth, over which he is given authority to make use of, having been subjected to him by Allah. Yet it is not entrusted to man to form independent beliefs about existence or lay the basic laws of life.

This belongs in the domain of the creed sent down by Allah to provide the correct beliefs that must be held about existence and life.

Therefore, Allah does not entrust man to his mind alone, or to the Fitrah (innate pure nature) He has placed in him through which he naturally knows his Lord, loves Him, yearns for Him, and beseeches for His Help in times of calamity. This Fitrah may become distorted because of internal and external pressures, and under forces of temptation and desire.

Rather, Allah entrusts mankind to His Revelations, His Messengers, His Guidance, and His Books, to restore to their inborn nature its purity and uprightness, to their minds its righteousness and soundness, and to remove the coverings from within and outside their souls which mislead them from the path.

This is what befits the Generosity of Allah, His Kindness, Mercy, Justice, Wisdom, and Knowledge. He U would not create mankind then leave them neglected, and then bring them on the Day of Judgment to account for their deeds without having sent among them a Messenger. (And We never punish until We have sent a Messenger (to give warning).)2

In the face of the fact that both the Message of Musa (Moses r) and its followers were acknowledged among the Arabs in the Peninsula, Allah U commanded His Messenger r to contradict the Mushrikin who denied any message or revelation with the following truth:

(Say (O Muhammad), Who then sent down the Book which Musa (Moses) brought, a light and guidance to mankind.)3

Confront them with this truth and leave the answer4:

(Say, Allah (sent it down). Then leave them to play in their vain discussions.)5
