The Ambiya of Allah
“And narrate to them the stories (of the Ambiya and Auliya) so that they reflect.” (Qur’aan)
“Everything We narrate to you from the stories of the Messengers is to strengthen your heart. In these (stories) have come the Truth (Haqq), Advice (Naseehat) and a Reminder for the Mu’mineen.” (Hood, Aayat 120)
In these Verses Allah Ta’ala addresses our Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). The stories of the Ambiya and Rusul of bygone times served the purpose of strengthening even the heart of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam).
These stories fortify the hearts of the Mu’mineen by virtue of the spiritual blessings with which they are imbued. The stories of the Ambiya and the Auliya remind the Mu’mineen of the objective (Maqsood) of life on earth. These narratives slacken worldly ties, forge greater affinity and concern for the Aakhirat, and draw the servant closer to his Rabb.
