Hello Plato,

Allah never asks people to misbehave. He only allows them to misbehave and then catches them when their time limit is over.

He has given freedom to everyone to act freely in a given time limit, but as soon as the time exceeds, this freedom is over.

Strictly speaking, Allah has given us a freedom to intend only not to act in the given time limit.

At the last day, we will be judged by our intentions not actions.

The Divine Punishment can come in any form. It always came in the form of natural disasters in the past but in case of Moses and Muhammad, it came with sword of believers.

In case of Jesus, it came with swords of Romans (who were pagans at that time but gradually became believers later)

Rasool has a direct link with God, he is in a constant guidance of God, Rasool cannot do mistake and if he does any, God interferes at once and rectify him.

For example, Muhammad (sws) was preaching to chiefs of Quraish, a blind companion came and asked some questions regarding Islam. Muhammad (sws) became angry and God interfered and asked him to teach the companion who wants to know than those chiefs who don't want to hear at all.

Rasool is neither dominated nor killed by his opponents. The reason is that God has a promise with Rasool that He will surely help Rasool and his fellows and punish their opponents. The falsehood of Musalyma is that he was killed and dominated by Muslims.This is why, we Muslims say, Jesus, a Rasool, was neither killed nor crucified because God has a special promise with Rasool.

This is a special promise with Rasool.

Surely, those that oppose God and his Rasool, shall be humiliated. God has decreed, "I will surely triumph – I and My Rasool". Powerful is God and Mighty

(Quran 58:20-21)


And this was the crystal-clear sign, Muhammad (sws) has proclaimed it to everyone, people of Arabia had seen that Muhammad (sws) can neither be killed nor be dominated and his opponents must be humiliated.

In his life in Makah, he told them the stories of Noah, the Lot, the Saleah, the Shoaib, the Hud …, he said, O people, the same thing would happen to you, I am a straight Warner and has a good news for you.

FYI: In Quran, Muhammad (sws) has been called Nazir-Warner and Bashir-Giver of glad-tidings a number of times

Thank you
