Title: "sacred rites" given by Allah Almighty to each nation (Verse 22:67)
Post by: Ruhi_Rose on December 15, 2017, 12:05:21 pm
 BismEm

As-Salam Alaykum everyone.

 لِّكُلِّ أُمَّةٍ جَعَلْنَا مَنسَكًا هُمْ نَاسِكُوهُ فَلَا يُنَازِعُنَّكَ فِي الْأَمْرِ وَادْعُ إِلَىٰ رَبِّكَ إِنَّكَ لَعَلَىٰ هُدًى مُّسْتَقِيمٍ
(22:67)

Unto each nation have We given sacred rites which they are to perform; so let them not dispute with you of the matter, but summon you unto your Rab.   Lo! you indeed follow right guidance.   (22:67)  Al-Hajj.


Does this Verse imply that other nations should be allowed to follow the sacred laws which Allah has bestowed on them while at the same time the Prophet (pbuh) should also invite them to the Message of the Noble Quran?

Walaikum As-Salam, Sister.   No, I wouldn't interpret it exactly that way.  Every nation refers to  "The Community of every Prophet."   The word used in original Arabic, as you can see, "mansakan"  (مَنسَكًا ) is a comprehensive expression that basically denotes worshiping Allah Almighty as a way of life which is a Message brought to their people by every Prophet in the past, and the people were expected to accept the Message.  The fact that every Prophet in the past brought the same message from Allah is again highlighted in this Verse.  Similarly the final Messenger, Prophet Muhammed (pbuh), has now brought a complete set of laws from Allah for the people of his community (and thenceforth to entire humanity).  Thus, the deniers are not entitled to object because the final Messenger has brought to his community the same what the previous Prophets brought to their communities.  The Divine Message which the final Messenger brought further exposes the ignorance of the idolaters for worshiping deities they have carved with their own hands.
