We sent messengers to you -- some that we have informed you in stories before and some that we have not told you about.
And Allah spoke to Moses directly.
G-d has communicated to humankind His Order by sending messengers. A small number of these messengers have been mentioned in the Qur’an but most have not been specified.This shows us that G-d’s revelation has a long history, having been communicated to humanity throughout civilizations, culminating in Muhammad the Prophet.
This shows that the mission of Muhammad the Prophet is a universal one and that G-d’s revelation and His Order is one for all times, even though cultures, circumstances, languages, politics, economies, and technologies may change. What Muslims of today must do is understand the message of the Qur’an and identify how to live within G-d’s universal order so we may produce a life of prosperity that leads us to the ultimate success for our souls.
