Allah tells us how He sent down 2 messengers and even a 3rd one to guide people and yet the people rejected, mocked and labelled the messengers as liars. Messengers in return hold their ground firmly of their role as a means of guidance to humanity from Allah. The people still reject them saying they are bad omen and if they do not stop preaching they will face a punishment (i.e., face physical harm from the misguided people). Ayah 20-25 form the core and central theme of this surah.
At a time where messengers are slandered, mocked and ridiculed. A man from a far away town comes rushing to attest that they are indeed messengers he presents to his people 3 points to support his verdict.
1. They are Al Mursalin – They come from higher authority and are not ordinary people.
2. They do not ask for retribution or anything in return.
3. They are guided – observe their personal, family and public life.
This man reminds his people of how they should all worship the most merciful god, to whom is the ultimate return and how false dieties will be of no avail. He reminds his people to listen to him and obey the one true creator and His messengers. The people kill this man, we are told that Allah granted him paradise without any reckoning – NO HISAAB! NO KITAAB! (We learn this from the consensus of the mufassirun and detailed study of the tafsir). In the 27th verse the man who is granted paradise wishes his people knew of what he was granted and how great it is.
