THREE QUESTIONS REGARDING MISSION OF THEPROPHETS
 IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, THE BENEFICENT, THE MERCIFUL PRAISED BE ALLAH, AND HONORABLE AND PERFECT  PEACE BE UPON MOHAMMED AND HIS INFALLIBLE IMMACULATE PROGENY.
There are three questions regarding missions of the prophets. These questionswere not regarded adequately by scholars.
First question:
Conveying the Lord’s missive is the original mission of theprophets. It is the pivot on which the prophets’ duties and deeds are grounded.This is purposed for substantiating the Lord’s claim on His servants.A prophet, then, is a conveyor of an epistle. He fears the Lord and evades His ireand torment if he squanders or violates the instructions. For this reason, theprophets were wont to call people to witness perfection of their conveyance.In addition, the prophets are not asked to coerce or compel people on admittingand accepting their missions. By the same token, they are not admitted to submitpeople to their missions.As a second rule, it is to say that coercion and compulsion is rejected in mattersrespecting the divine religion. It is obligatory to preserve people’s freedom of believing or refutation. They are, likewise, free to commit themselves to thereligion or deviate.This is the very meaning of opening school of life in this world, and testing peoplein guidance or aberrance by giving them the ability of doing good and evil. Theresult shall be shown in another stage and another world. Drawing people to thereligion by force contradicts principals of this test, and principals of freedom of option.
Second question
: The prophets’ goals are dedicated to the grand issues of peopleand societies. An apostle can be resembled to a divine engineer specialized inconstruction of cultures, societies and history. From these points, the prophets’missions should be looked upon. A scholar must ask himself how people’s cultureand history should have been in case this prophet had not been messaged by theLord, and what happened due to that prophet’s conveying the mission. Thiswonderment may be addressed in another form; how should paganism be nowadaysif Abraham was not chosen by the Lord for conveying the divine mission, or if hedid not found and plant bases and principals of monotheism in human societies?And how should the situation of the Arab lands specially, and the whole worldgenerally, be if the Prophet (peace be upon him and his family) was not chosen forcarrying the divine mission and moving this latter prolongation in monotheism andcivilization?The Prophet’s mission was forming a nation and leading it to occupying anadvanced position, if not the pioneer, amongst the other nations. That formationwas the best in content and structure.

Likewise, the Prophet’s mission was establishing a ship, to find its way in the oceanof people and currency of history. He was keen on handing the captainship to hishousehold, whom were chosen and purified by the Lord Who gave them His Book in heritage exclusively.If people reject their captainship, it will be unimportant for captainship to be heldby any, till God manages His affair in this nation, and sends Mahdi, the Expected.
Third question
: It is indisputable that the Prophet’s personality is present andeffective in the process of conveyance, but it is very limited and minute. None candeny that the Prophet is intelligent, genius, author and selective.Disregarding mechanism, the reciprocator is seeking the Lord’s guidance throughmeans of satisfaction, faith and worshipping.The area in which the Prophet is allowed to practice his personal inference forms anarrow point in proportion to the large area of his practices.Hence, the Prophet’s like is an engineer whose boss hands him the mission of giving effects of a large project. This engineer is satisfied that he should contact hisboss frequently for evading any mistake. Meanwhile, he works, thinks and carrieson working. But, he goes on contacting the center so that he receives stages of planning and consults for avoiding problems. At any rate, this example is a highlymicroscopic view of the Prophet’s mission.Regarding the Center of the Prophet, Allah; the Praised, is unparalleled in entityand deeds. Depending upon the previous, any study respecting the Prophet’s lifeaccount should regard these three matters. First, the Prophet’s mission is carryingwhat is revealed to him. Second, his task is founding a nation to find its way inhistory. Lastly, he is to follow the Lord’s instructions in every deed.This fact is evidently touched by a scrutinizing look at the Prophet’s life account. Itis obviously seen that Allah; the Exalted, managed the Prophet’s affairs from startto finish. The Prophet was used to obeying his Lord’s instructions submissively,dependently and compliantly. Therefore, results of his deeds achieved anextraordinary attainment that exceeded intellectualities and senses of sociologists,founders of nations and establishers of civilizations.The Prophet could create an international civilized ideological extension in arelative period and the least material and humane casualties. Despite truculence of the Prophet’s foes who led hard wars against him, casualties of both sides did notattain the number of two thousand. This was because that Prophet’s managementwas instructed by his Lord; the Glorified.Incessantly, the Quran was revealed to the Prophet since the first day of his Missiontill few days before his decease. Gabriel; the angel, was visitating him frequentlywith Quranic Verses, revelation, instructions, directions, answers and the like.So many are examples on matters of the divine presence and care in big, as well assmall, affairs. All refer to the fact that the Prophet (peace be upon him and hisfamily) would not have behaved personally except during applying the generallines and carrying on the detailed orders drawn by the divine revelation andconveyed by Gabriel, the angel. In many occasions, the Prophet (peace be upon himand his family) ceased practicing any procedure since he was in wait for the divinerevelation.
