Quran’s view of chapter Nisa are as follows :

163. “Verily, We have inspired you (O Muhammad ) as We inspired Noah and the Prophets after him; We (also) inspired Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the twelve sons of Jacob, Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, and Solomon, and to David We gave the Psalms”.

164. “And Messengers We have mentioned to you before, and Messengers We have not mentioned to you, – and to Moses Allah spoke directly”.

165. “Messengers as bearers of good news as well as of warning in order that mankind should have no plea against Allah after the Messengers. And Allah is Ever All-Powerful, All-Wise”.

166. “But Allah bears witness to that which He has sent down (the Qur’an) unto you (O Muhammad ), He has sent it down with His Knowledge, and the angels bear witness. And Allah is All-Sufficient as a Witness.

167. “Verily, those who disbelieve [by concealing the truth about Prophet Muhammad and his message of true Islamic Monotheism written with them in the Torah and the Gospel and prevent (mankind) from the Path of Allah (Islamic Monotheism), they have certainly strayed far away”.

168. “Verily, those who disbelieve and did wrong [by concealing the truth about Prophet Muhammad and his message of true Islamic Monotheism written with them in the Torah and the Gospel, Allah will not forgive them, nor will He guide them to any way”.

169. “ Except the way of Hell, to dwell therein forever, and this is ever easy for Allah”.

170. “O mankind! Verily, there has come to you the Messenger (Muhammad ) with the truth from your Lord, so believe in him, it is better for you. But if you disbelieve, then certainly to Allah belongs all that is in the heavens and the earth. And Allah is Ever All-Knowing, All-Wise”.

The strings of pearls should be locked at the end of the necklace otherwise all the pearls would disintegrate dispersing. Likewise Prophet Muhammad pbuh is the seal of the necklace of the Prophethood, without him it the fabric of Prophethood and Allah’s speech to mankind would remain undone.

Let us first understand the concept of Islam. The Quran does not say that we have sent down a new religion through Muhammad pbuh. The Quran says the religion with Allah since the beginning of time has been Islam. Meaning to say Islam is much much more than what the word “religion” can describe. Islam is even the religion of a bird, a leaf, the galaxies, the heavens, atoms and winds. You may ask how? Because Islam is not merely religion. Islam literally translates to “submission”. God says this is the religion of nature or law of nature. That each is in submission to God by doing what God expects from it. For eg. The sun is submitting to the will of God by doing all that it does. Has it ever happened that sun chose to sustain or orbit a different family, or not perform it’s risings and settings as it should? No, because the sun is doing as God commanded it. The sun is obeying the command of God (a muslim/obeying one who has submitted) and if following Islam. So this is the law of nature God chose for mankind too. Since Adam, every Prophet that came was inclining them towards this concept only.

Today we have different names of it. But when Moses taught the Torah, when David, the Psalms, when Jesus, the Bible, they all were preaching Islam (to submit your will and faith to God). Allah mentions every prophet as a muslim. For instance, All computer programs introduced by Bill Gates were promoting Microsoft. Though year after year they were changed and modified as per necessity and requirement. They were named differently, but they were still segments of same one company. Likewise the concept of law with God is Islam. He sent down prophets and guides with scriptures with modifications over time according to the increasing maturity of mankind as a whole. Different prophets with different scriptures to different species of man amongst different generation in different languages of different cultures tastes and habits. But the underlying ideology was one, Submition (islam) and obey only one true God.

Allah says in the Quran that He has named the believers in God as Muslims in the Quran and in every previous scripture. But muslim and islam are words of Arabic language, but previous scriptures were of different languages for e.g the vedas the torah and bible at their origins. But what Allah wants us to reflect upon is the underlying meaning and concept of these words and symbols. The Quran commands every believer in it to beleive in all the previous scriptures and prophets. If i do not believe the Bible as sent down by Allah, i m not a muslim then, if i do not believe in moses, i am not a muslim, that is because all the holy scriptures and prophets were sent down by Allah alone. But over time when man was entrusted with the scripture, as time contiued, some men observed the impact of God’s speech and utopia for mankind, so to gain political control, in greed of wealth, accumulate power upon men for their selfish needs and personal desires, they began distorting the scriptures over time, hence distorting the social structure of society entirely.

Creating conflicts to control the people and make them against each other, to enjoy power control and wealth. So God sent down new legislations and modified ones again and again. One may ask if God is perfect then why did he have to send again and again. That is because every time a scripture was sent, then began their game, to test them what they would do at their levels. And life was meant to test Man, but man was guided and warned and then left to freedom of choice. Until when all scriptures and prophets were sent and the death of time (Judgement day for that very test) was near, yet mankind was prone to their habit of denial, distortion and corruption. So Allah decided to send the Quran as the final legislation for mankind with the final prophet for mankind, to be tested in the final level of thia game, which will mark the peak of mankind’s marvel and uthopia its end too. But man needs proof and God has always provided him with it, so for this last warning and guidance, God sent a Book on earth like no other book ever sent, The Quran, with extensive wisdom and knowledge, and challenged mankind and the jinn that never can they produce anything like the Quran, not even a single verse like it.

Therefore when the last module is amidst us, God wants us to upgrade and advance to the Qur’an from the Bible, Torah, Vedas etc. Because none of them remain compact and preserved in their original form without a flaw or distortion. The Quran is the only inscribed book in all of history that maintains its record of originality, remaining unchanged through a period of 1500 year now. Moreover the Quran challenges that it will never be changed until the end or proved against reason and intellect. Like God advanced our intellect to flourish on the universe like man never did, He wants us to now upgrade and advance ourselves with the speech of God which was never sent before. Infact the Quran says that mankind need alot of advancement in sciences, mathematics, technology, all the realms of knowledge and intellect, etc. To configure the details of the Quran.

The miracle is that it is in a form which is usual to man, yet it is made unusual and divine by God, as proof for man to witness the rarity and oddness of the Quran. But when the Quran was revelaed, it was only verbal speech and thus the Prophet Muhammad is but a human form of the Quran. So the Prophet and the Quran are inseperable. And that is why in this age one cannot claim to disbeleif on the Prophet muhammad pbuh, but believe in God, and expect God will favour him. Because to beleif in God, one has to beleif in His proof, which is the Quran, which in turn is the Prophet himself. So Islam is the religion that commands to believe in all religions and scriptures and prophets, but along with that advance and upgrade to the final call of God, for which there ia sufficient proof (which is incrementing). The wisdom behind the linguistic variety of Allah’s speech to mankind over time, and the miracle of the Quran confining all modern sciences and all intellectual knowledge of man, is a seperate topic of discussion entirely.

Consider the below verses of the The Quran, God’s final speech to mankind.

“And strive for Allah with the striving due to Him. He has chosen you and has not placed upon you in the religion any difficulty. [It is] the religion of your father, Abraham. Allah named you “Muslims(who submits their will to God)” before [in former scriptures] and in this [revelation] that the Messenger(Muhammad pbuh) may be a witness over you and you may be witnesses over the people. So establish prayer and give zakah and hold fast to Allah . He is your protector; and excellent is the protector, and excellent is the helper”. (Qur'an 22 : 78)

“Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered prophet, whom they find written in what they have of the Torah and the Gospel, who enjoins upon them what is right and forbids them what is wrong and makes lawful for them the good things and prohibits for them the evil and relieves them of their burden and the shackles which were upon them. So they who have believed in him, honored him, supported him and followed the light which was sent down with him – it is those who will be the successful. (Qur'an 9 : 157)

"Mankind was [of] one religion [before their deviation]; then Allah sent the prophets as bringers of good tidings and warners and sent down with them the Scripture in truth to judge between the people concerning that in which they differed". (Quran 2 : 213)

“O mankind, there has to come to you instruction from your Lord and healing for what is in the breasts and guidance and mercy for the believers. (Qur'an10 : 57)

O God, show us truth as true, and enable us to follow it..!
