Ma AAala alrrasooli illa albalaghu waAllahu yaAAlamu ma tubdoona wama taktumoona
The aya says:
Not upon the envoy except the effective delivery, while Allah knows what you reveal and what you hide.
My personal note:
This Aya is a reminder to all of us to be aware that if we reject the messenger’s message for a bias of some sort or for arrogance and pride then Allah knows. It is a reminder to be honest and conscious with oneself and with God.
It is also a reminder of God's deep knowledge of us and comes after the Aya that reminded us of Allah's punishment as well as forgivenss and mercy. In a sense that we need to take both in consideration as we probe deeper into our selves and urges.
Translation of the transliterated words:
alrrasooli: the messenger/ the envoy
Note: ALRRASOOLI is derived from the root R-S-L and it means to envoy someone or a group of people or animals. The concrete word is RASL and it means a group of people or animals that were sent by their owners or senders. ALRRASOOLI means the envoy or the messenger.
Illa: except/ if not
Albalaghu: the effective delivery/ clear delivery
Note: the root is B-L-GHain and it means in concrete a child that became adult and therefore reached maturity. conceptually, it is used for language that is mature and clear as well as for anything that reached it’s intended design. ALBALAGH is the effective delivery and complete delivery which is not only done through delivery of words but through all the needed means for effective delivery including acting upon the words.
