Surah Ibrahim (14) 14/08/2015

bismi_65

With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

Verse 4: “We sent not a messenger except (to teach) in the language of his (own) people, in order to make (things) clear to them”

Verse 4 informs us that Allah SWT sent messengers to teach people in their own language and the reason that He did so was to ensure that the people understood what was being communicated.  So the Prophets spoke the languages of their people and their respective scriptures were revealed in those languages as well.

What we learn from this is when making dawah we ought to teach in the language of the people and make Allah’s message (al Quran) available in different languages for the various people of different languages to understand it.

Continues tomorrow… Salaam/Peace
