God’s Messages to the World (6:91 – 6:92)

God’s Messages to the World

[6:91] They never valued GOD as He should be valued. Thus, they said, “GOD does not reveal anything to any human being.” Say, “Who then revealed the scripture that Moses brought, with light and guidance for the people?” You put it down on paper to proclaim it, while concealing a lot of it. You were taught what you never knew – you and your parents. Say, “GOD (is the One who revealed it),” then leave them in their heedlessness, playing.
[6:92] This too is a blessed scripture that we have revealed, confirming the previous scriptures, that you may warn the most important community* and all those around it. Those who believe in the Hereafter will believe in this (scripture), and will observe the Contact Prayers (Salat). 
*6:92 Today’s “most important community” is America, where God’s message is being restored. When the Quran was revealed, Mecca was the most important community.

In verse 91 it states “They never valued God as He should be valued.” How do we value God? 

[22:74] They do not value GOD as He should be valued. GOD is the Most Powerful, the Almighty.

We value God through following His commandments and being appreciative. By making God our top priority it shows how much we value God. Being mindful of the blessings God provided to us shows how much we value God.

Preoccupation With the Wrong Life

[30:6] Such is GOD’s promise – and GOD never breaks His promise – but most people do not know.

[30:7] They care only about things of this world that are visible to them, while being totally oblivious to the Hereafter. 

Re-arrange Your Priorities

[29:64] This worldly life is no more than vanity and play, while the abode of the Hereafter is the real life, if they only knew. 

It is ironic that the United States is the closest to God’s laws and therefore the most prosperous country in the world as oppose to the “Islamic” nations who are some of the most oppressive and backward societies on the planet. The countries that have the Quran in their language are the last ones to follow the laws instituted in the Quran.

In 91 does it mean that the previous scriptures are from God?
Yes, the previous scriptures are from God. Unfortunately some of the scriptures have been lost and some have been tampered with, but the origins of the scriptures are from God.

[57:27] Subsequent to them, we sent our messengers. We sent Jesus the son of Mary, and we gave him the Injeel (Gospel), and we placed in the hearts of his followers kindness and mercy. But they invented hermitism which we never decreed for them. All we asked them to do was to uphold the commandments approved by GOD. But they did not uphold the message as they should have. Consequently, we gave those who believed among them their recompense, while many of them were wicked.

[3:3] He sent down to you this scripture, truthfully, confirming all previous scriptures, and He sent down the Torah and the Gospel

[3:50] “I confirm previous scripture – the Torah – and I revoke certain prohibitions imposed upon you. I come to you with sufficient proof from your Lord. Therefore, you shall observe GOD, and obey me. 

[2:101] Now that a messenger from GOD has come to them, and even though he proves and confirms their own scripture, some followers of the scripture (Jews, Christians, and Muslims) disregard GOD’s scripture behind their backs, as if they never had any scripture.

The Gospel of Jesus: Guidance and Light

[5:46] Subsequent to them, we sent Jesus, the son of Mary, confirming the previous scripture, the Torah. We gave him the Gospel, containing guidance and light, and confirming the previous scriptures, the Torah, and augmenting its guidance and light, and to enlighten the righteous.
[5:47] The people of the Gospel shall rule in accordance with GOD’s revelations therein. Those who do not rule in accordance with GOD’s revelations are the wicked.

Quran: The Ultimate Reference

[5:48] Then we revealed to you this scripture, truthfully, confirming previous scriptures, and superseding them. You shall rule among them in accordance with GOD’s revelations, and do not follow their wishes if they differ from the truth that came to you. For each of you, we have decreed laws and different rites. Had GOD willed, He could have made you one congregation. But He thus puts you to the test through the revelations He has given each of you. You shall compete in righteousness. To GOD is your final destiny – all of you – then He will inform you of everything you had disputed.
