Pointless and Absurd Questions of the Disbelievers of Makkah – Part Two

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) rejected this proposal of the Quraish, they replied, “Very well! If you cannot do this for us, then make du‘aa for yourself for Allah Ta‘ala to send an angel from the heavens who will accompany you wherever you go and attest to your truthfulness. Also request Allah to bless you with orchards, palaces and treasures of gold and silver through which your nobility and piety will become clear. We observe that you also go to the market places in search of sustenance.”

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “I will never place such requests before Allah Ta‘ala. I was not commissioned as a prophet for this purpose. I was commissioned to this world as a Basheer (a giver of glad tidings) and a Nazeer (a warner). If you believe and accept what I say then your acceptance will be a means of your success and salvation, in this world and the next. If you do not accept my message then I will exercise patience until Allah Ta‘ala passes judgement between us.”
