Brief Verse Interpretation / Tafsir
Allah ordered the prophet Muhammad (SAW) to spread the message of obeying him and his Lord (Allah). It was his duty to only spread the message. Those who choose to accept or deny would be challenged for it when the time comes.
“Say, “Obey Allah and obey the Messenger; but if you turn away – then upon him is only that [duty] with which he has been charged, and upon you is that with which you have been charged. And if you obey him, you will be [rightly] guided. And there is not upon the Messenger except the [responsibility for] clear notification.” Quran (Surah Nur, 54)
