The belying of Messengers is a norm

Monday 15/06/2009

“I wish I were young and could live up to the time when your people will turn you out.” The Messenger of Allah  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) asked: “Will they drive me out?” Waraqah replied in the affirmative and said, “No man ever came with something similar to what you have brought except he was treated with hostility. If I should remain alive till the day when you will be turned out, then I would support you strongly.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

This Hadeeth shows that one of the norms of the nations with their callers to Allah The Almighty is belying and eviction. Allah The Almighty Says (what means) about the people of Prophet Loote (Lot), may Allah exalt his mention: {But the answer of his people was not except that they said, “Expel the family of Lot from your city. Indeed, they are people who keep themselves pure.”} [Quran 27:56]
Allah The Almighty Says about the people of Shu‘ayb, may Allah exalt his mention, (what means): {Said the eminent ones who were arrogant among his people, “We will surely evict you, O Shu'ayb, and those who have believed with you from our city, or you must return to our religion.” He said, “Even if we were unwilling?”} [Quran 7:88]
Also, Allah The Almighty Says (what means): {And those who disbelieved said to their Messengers, “We will surely drive you out of our land, or you must return to our religion.” So their Lord inspired to them, “We will surely destroy the wrongdoers.”} [Quran 14:13]
