وَمَآ أَرۡسَلۡنَا قَبۡلَكَ إِلَّا رِجَالاً۬ نُّوحِىٓ إِلَيۡہِمۡۖ فَسۡـَٔلُوٓاْ أَهۡلَ ٱلذِّڪۡرِ إِن كُنتُمۡ لَا تَعۡلَمُونَ (٧) وَمَا جَعَلۡنَـٰهُمۡ جَسَدً۬ا لَّا يَأۡڪُلُونَ ٱلطَّعَامَ وَمَا كَانُواْ خَـٰلِدِينَ (٨) ثُمَّ صَدَقۡنَـٰهُمُ ٱلۡوَعۡدَ فَأَنجَيۡنَـٰهُمۡ وَمَن نَّشَآءُ وَأَهۡلَڪۡنَا ٱلۡمُسۡرِفِينَ (٩)
Before thee, also the messengers we sent were but men, to whom We granted inspiration: if ye know this not, ask of those who possess the Message. (7) Nor did We give them bodies that ate no food, nor were they exempt from death. (8) In the end We fulfilled to them Our promise, and We saved them and those whom We pleased, but We destroyed those who transgressed beyond bounds. (9)
TAFSEER FROM DR FARHAT HASHMI (translated)
Prophet Muhammad and the preceding Messengers were human, despite the miracles they were endowed with: e.g. Jesus AS could raise people from the dead by the izm of Allah, Moses had his staff that parted the sea, and Saleh (AS) had the she camel.
Nevertheless they ate food and walked in the street and they all eventually died.
There are those who live by Allah’s words and live on the emaan of his words, conscious of the fact that they will be evaluated on the day of Judgment. And then there are those who ignore all this.
