Why Messengers (20:133 – 20:135)

Why Messengers?

[20:133] They said, “If he could only show us a miracle from his Lord!” Did they not receive sufficient miracles with the previous messages?
[20:134] Had we annihilated them before this, they would have said, “Our Lord, had You sent a messenger to us, we would have followed Your revelations, and would have avoided this shame and humiliation.”
[20:135] Say, “All of us are waiting, so wait; you will surely find out who are on the correct path, and who are truly guided.”

God’s Messengers Challenged

[17:90] They said, “We will not believe you unless you cause a spring to gush out of the ground. [17:91] “Or unless you own a garden of date palms and grapes, with rivers running through it. [17:92] “Or unless you cause masses from the sky, as you claimed, to fall on us. Or unless you bring GOD and the angels before our eyes. [17:93] “Or unless you own a luxurious mansion, or unless you climb into the sky. Even if you do climb, we will not believe unless you bring a book that we can read.”* Say, “Glory be to my Lord. Am I any more than a human messenger?”  

Messengership: An Essential Test

[17:94] What prevented the people from believing when the guidance came to them, is their saying, “Did GOD send a human being as a messenger?” [17:95] Say, “If the earth were inhabited by angels, we would have sent down to them from the sky an angel messenger.” 

Miracle of the Quran to be Unveiled After Muhammad*

[10:20] They say, “How come no miracle came down to him from his Lord?” Say, “The future belongs to GOD; so wait, and I am waiting along with you.”
