In these verses Allah is explaining how sincere and sensible people model their lives around his guidance objectively. They try their best to look at each and everything in light of the set goals and provided guidelines by Allah for ensuring well being of mankind. The main thing in their sight is assigned mission of Allah for mankind because that is of utmost importance for them to accomplish because without the advised way of life by Allah mankind have no future and mankind can only know about it if it is made obvious for them. Since for ensuring well being of mankind there is need for a proper human community or ummah and a kingdom therefore spreading of message of Allah widely and being prepared for any hateful reaction by those who consider this message a danger for their harmful and destructive ambitions and desires based upon personal gains at the expense of each other. If a people oppress and suppress each other then someone has to stop them from doing so therefore the need for having a capable force at hand to deal with any such situation that may arise in course of duty. The force serves no other purpose in context of deen of Islam because way of life advised by Allah is logically consistent and cannot be refuted rationally. Moreover no one needs to fight against it because it is for ensuring the well being of all. However people with harmful and destructive desire and ambition for dominating others by undermining them consider this as act of war against them but they refuse to see the truth that it is they who are declaring war against humanity by forcing people to live by their ways of life instead of the way of life advised by Allah because their ways of life benefit them at the expense of all the rest. In order to hide the actual truth from masses they try to propagate all kinds of nonsense against the deen of Islam through their mullahs and other touts and agents. This is why it is necessary for masses to educate themselves in order to see how such like people trick them to keep them under their thumbs. This is why to free such bonded people is not easy and unless their is an ummah and it has a powerful kingdom to deal with people of this nature who are real enemies of deen of Allah as well as humanity.

Here the Quran is talking about another kingdom that was ruled by a people who oppressed and suppressed their own people and this situation was brought to notice of Solomon so he decide to take action to put things right in that kingdom as well. The purpose of use of force according to deen of Islam is not to take over a land of a people to enslave them but to help them to become free from oppression and suppression so that they could live their lives in a better way by removing the obstacles in their way which stop them from living their lives properly. It is just a matter of explaining to people what deen of Allah is and if they like it then none has the right to stop them from living by it. If anyone uses force to so then such force must be dealt with by force if need be. Deen of Islam demands that people live in unity and harmony for their peace, progress and prosperity as a proper human community and all obstacles in their way must be removed need be by use of force.
35] He said, my Creator and Sustainer!

38] and assembly workers.

Also a piece of thread that is used for holding beads together, shackles, thongs, to give freely, a piece of thread that is put through the eye of the needle for sewing or embroidery, a metal chain where by captives or slaves or prisoners are held together to stop them from escaping, to organise and regulate a people to work together as a unit, a piece of rope or string or something like used to hold things together in some way for some purpose, fetters, necklaces, bracelets, ornaments, jewellery, assembly line workers who work together on tasks set out for them by experts or managers, a way of using such people who are not experts in things but can play their part in contributing to society by doing things that do not need much higher level expertise or skills or experiences, to bind, to tie, to hold in position or place, to stop, to prevent, to resist, to hold by the neck, something that has something to do with the neck, to tie someone’s hands by doing one a favour, to grant, some sort of preventative measure, to bribe, to entice, to blackmail, to hold hostage, to tie one down with ideas or actions or things, to stop or prevent one from responding unfavourably, to fetter one ideologically, to make one prisoner through ideological control, to indoctrinate, to brainwash, tree or plant or something like tree or plant in some sense, mouth or something like mouth in some sense, door or something like door in some sense etc etc.
39] We said, this guidance for a way of life for educating people is Our free gift of knowledge to you the mankind for unity, peace, progress and abundant prosperity but it is entirely up to yourselves to help each other with it or withhold it from each other.
Here Allah is telling mankind his guidance is of great value yet it is free and people should share it with each other freely and thereby benefit from it abundantly. These verses are telling people what is needed for a person to be a good leader and likewise what is needed for a person to be a good supporter of a good leadership. Not only that but people are also told how a leader should be able to guide and use his people to move the whole community together towards a better and brighter future through working hard together as a proper human community or ummah or human family or a brotherhood of mankind. However guidance means nothing at all without people understanding it properly and adopting it faithfully. All this needs people to cooperate with each other rather than set themselves upon the course of rivalries and animosities which can lead them to hatred against each other and eventually to terrible wars instead. Here it is also made clear that no person is of any importance unless one basis oneself upon guidance of Allah because nothing much can be accomplished by individuals on their own. Proper human community is a must or humanity will keep on suffering the way it has been by hands of each other save at times when they lived as a proper human community. The other point made clear here is the fact that part of Allah in his scheme of thing is to provide guidance for people and the rest is up to mankind themselves as to what they make of it or how they use it. Should they understand it properly and follow it faithfully then result is bound to be brilliant future for mankind in this very world but if not then the consequences will become clear for mankind to see by their own eyes.

The story of prophet Job is not any different from other messengers of Allah. When his people turned into an ugly human population thanks to its leaders, God sent Job to save humanity from destroying itself. As usual leaders who live on basis of personal gains at the expense of each other get angry and take all steps within their power to fight off new movement. In this situation sometimes a prophet gains more support than existing leaders so he leads his people in the proper direction properly but at other times he does not get that sort of support so he is forced to leave the place along with his supporters but carries on working elsewhere and may even return and be successful with very same people who force him out of his place. The case of prophet Job was one of like the last messenger ie he was forced to migrate but returned with more support. As usual the final messenger is educated through story of an old prophet that this could happen to him as well so he should not give up when it comes to it and try and make the mission successful wherever there are people who are more likely to accept and support the message. These stories are also lessons for people even today that if they want to bring about kingdom of Allah then they should work just like the prophets of old and in due course the heavenly kingdom will appear when it has enough support of mankind. This is why Muslims need to learn the Quran properly and spread its message properly so that their own generation remain aware of what Islam is really about and are able to convince others about it. By telling stories of old prophets Quran educates people in different ways. It keeps heroes of Islam alive and how they became heroes and how their followers today can be a force for building a proper human community that they can be really proud of. The stupid stories invented by stupid mullahs about God and his messengers should be ignored because they can be seen for what they really are. They make obvious who invented them and why.
43] That is how We supported him with his own people as well as other people like them along with them due to Our program that was able to lead such people to blissful, dignified and secure existence as had learned the sense to understand and do things properly.
44] So in due course We said to him, gather your strength and travel the land and do not break your agreement with Us. We found him steadfast indeed. What an excellent man! In every situation he turned to Us for guidance.

It should be noted that whenever the Quran says one turned to God, it means one consulted his revelation or did things according to it. It is a very clear proof that people need to understand the Quran and not read it like a parrot senselessly. That is waste of time because it serves no purpose unless one is learning to read the Quranic text or is busy memorising it. Till each and every Muslim learns to read the Quran and memorises it and understands it properly as well as spreads it faithfully the purpose of revelation of the Quran cannot be served or fulfilled, which is basically bringing about a proper human community as explained in detail already.
45] And let Us mention Our subjects Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who had abilities to do things as well as had the vision.
The Quran makes a very important point here that men of God are those who develop their abilities and have vision. Only people with ability and vision can lead nations to better future and that is the very reason Allah chose such top people at the time as his messengers. These verses very clearly show what the true message of the Quran is for mankind ie be ambitious and keen to work hard for better future of mankind. This is a very clear condemnation of rulers, money lenders, mullahs, their touts and suppers because such people are a bunch of blind and useless people due to their short sightedness which cannot see the world beyond their personal gains at the expense of the rest. It is for this reason they devise and use all sorts of tricks and traps or mechanisms.
46] Surely We chose them for their special quality of keeping in mind the end result of whatever they thought or did, especially regarding where will they be in future as a result of their thoughts and actions with respect to each other as a people.
47] Certainly in Our sight they were among the chosen ones due to ensuring blissful, dignified and secure existence for mankind.

48] So let Us mention Ismail, Elisha and Zul-Kifl also. They were all such people who worked for blissful, dignified and secure existence of mankind.
49] This Quran is also a message that can lead those who are consistent with it as well as each other to a beautiful existence as the end result of their thoughts and actions for ensuring well being of each other
50] in the kingdoms full of raw materials, opening doors for them to show their potential for creativity.
51] That is how they will rise to level of dignity and security in there, relying upon fruits of their own labour in abundance due to learning knowledge from Our revelation by understanding things properly.
The Quran is not only about actual food and drink but about food for thoughts and actions as well. It is fountain of knowledge to drink or learn from as explained already in detail. The idea is to express creativity through explorations and discoveries to ensure blissful, dignified and secure existence of proper human community by using whatever is made available in the kingdoms under management of people based upon guidance of Allah.
52] That is how they will end up with highly knowledgeable people with crystal clear vision.
53] These are the things which you are being promised for the period of time to come when people will do things properly according to Our set measures.
Such verses tell people that after you come together in a brotherhood and have a place to yourselves then explore it and use whatever you find in their to improve lives of people in there so that all live comfortably according to set out program, constitution and law without unnecessary worries or anxiety. After creating an exemplary kingdom take the message to rest of humanity so that they also could do the same. Setting up a kingdom based upon guidance of Allah as an example is necessary for people who claim to understand the Quran properly and follow it faithfully because this will attract attention of the people in the rest of the world. However care is absolutely necessary that kingdom is fully prepared to deal with people who wish to join the kingdom one after the other. In other words it is duty of Muslims to help rest of humanity to set up its kingdoms like the kingdom based upon guidance of Allah for ensuring well being of their people. Deen of Islam teaches consistency with humanity not rivalry and animosity.
54] This will be Our provision which will never fail to materialise.

Also to vanish, to disappear, to finish, to end, to expire, to deplete, to wear out, to come to an end, to become reduced to nothing, to be or become lost, to have nothing more to think or say or do, to no longer continue, to become discontinued, to stop happening, to stop occurring, to do no more, to end continuity, to break, to put a stop to, to become empty, to become consumed, to reduce, to decrease, to use up, to pass out of existence, to pass out of sight, to cease to exist, to become distant, to gap, to speak, to deceive, to trick, to cheat, to go away, to obstruct, to block, to depart, to fail, to not materialise, to not to happen, to not to come to existence, to not to be, fish or ink or something like fish or ink in some sense, mouth or something like mouth in some sense, door or something like door in some sense etc etc.
55] Such will be the reward for those who will do things properly but for the rebellious people who break mankind into factions for personal gains there will be a terrible state of existence,
56] the state of painful suffering that is! In which they will keep on burning due to fire igniting and fuelled by themselves, what a terrible state of existence to be in!
People who live on basis of personal gains at the expense of each can never find unity therefore peace and harmony between them therefore they cannot make progress they are supposed to make so they can never prosper or be a successful people. In such human populations a few will keep on using others abusively for their own personal gains at their expense. This abusive use of each other leads people to life of terribly painful agony which the Quran calls hell but it is created by people themselves against which Allah warns people repeatedly but do they pay any attention? None or very little if we look at the state of the world before our very eyes.
57] Such will be the case of opponents of Our advised way of life as if they have immersed themselves in boiling water that is full of filth.
Word HAMEEM is from root HAA, MEEM and MEEM. Concrete meaning of this root is to heat up. Also to melt, to make hot, to cause to heat up, to get involved in heated debate, to cause environment to heat up, to spread hatred, to conspire for war, to make way for strife, to heat up the water, hot water, energy, to be concerned, to care about or have concern for, to become a headache, to become problem, to become difficult or troublesome, to become harmful or destructive, to fill atmosphere with hatred, to have very emotional attachment with, to be a helper or supporter, to be a confidant, to intend, to have intension for, to decide about something, to have fever or illness or worry or anxiety, to bathe, to be very close or cordial friends, to have a lively or an active relationship, to be close up, to become due, hot boiling water, a bath, death, coal, black choking smoke, intense actual fire or fire of hatred, an intimate friend, family, circle, associate, colleague, entourage, pigeon or dove or something like a pigeon or dove in some sense, canopy of hot fire, fence or something like fence in some sense, water or something like water in some sense etc etc.
This like verses are repeated in the Quran to show where mankind will end up or will be led in due course if they did not follow the way of life advised by Allah for them and what will happen to them in there. The point made in the verses like this is to explain that just like clean fresh water is life giving to all living things at right temperature so boiling or freezing water can take away that life. In other words just as having and using right things at the right time helps growth and development of mankind so having and using things the wrong way can make life of mankind hell by their own hands or making. Just as doing certain things helps humanity progress so doing certain other things could freeze growth and development of humanity and thereby could hold humanity back from growth and progress as well as could rollback and destroy even what has been achieved or built so for.
58] and they will suffer many other things of same sort.
Word SHAKLIH is from root SHEEN, KAAF and LAAM. Concrete meaning of this root is to mould something into some sort of shape in some sense. Also to bind or sculpt or form or shape or fashion, to create or carve or imagine or think out or conceptualise, to be homogeneous, an ideal or likeness or similarity or resemblance, similitude or example, in a similar way or likewise or in the same manner, peculiarity or inclination or disposition, something in some way similar to another, a rope or something like rope to tie something in some way, to be similar in mindset or attitude or behaviour, to be similar in being or quality or an aspect, to be sharp in some sense, to be firm in some sense, to be soft in some sense, to be prickly in some sense, to be irritating in some sense, teeth or something like teeth in some sense, palm of hand or something like palm of hand in some sense, ox-goad or something like ox-goad in some sense etc etc.
Due to their own doings when there comes a very bad time upon nations and things keep getting worse then all kinds of pressures start building up and blaming starts and keep increasing among their people, both leaders and supporters. It could go as far as people destroying each other completely in their madness.
59] It will be said to the chiefs by Our missionaries, here are your troops that used to rush headlong with you to protect you. They will say, they are not welcomed here. They should burn in the fire they have ignited for themselves.

60] The followers will reply, but you as well! You are not welcome here either! It is you people who have brought us to this state of existence. What a terrible state of existence this is to be in.
Word QADAM is from root QAAF, DAAL and MEEM. Concrete meaning of this root is foot.

61] So they will express their wish about them to God saying, our Creator and Sustainer, let these people suffer double the painful suffering who brought upon us this terrible state of existence.
62] While arguing with each other they will say to one another, what is the matter with us why do we not see those here among us whom we used to count among the harmful and destructive people

63] and whom we used to ridicule and demonise or is our eyesight is failing us to notice them?
This is because all their lives they have been telling each other not to listen or do what these people say who claim to deliver message of God because they are bad people yet when the result comes out the leaders and followers end up in same troubles they were warned against yet the people they assumed bad are not in the same situation as they. So the direction each people take in life and where it ends them proves if they lived their lives properly or not.
64] Surely, this is a proven reality that that is how people in agonising painful suffering argue with each other.
65] Say, my job is only to make mankind aware that there is no ruler other than Allah, the One, the Irresistible,
66] the Creator and Sustainer of the heavens and the earth and all that lies in between them, the mighty protector of mankind through guidance for blissful, dignified and secure existence.
67] Say, this is a message of supreme importance that you cannot afford to ignore
68] yet you avoid paying attention to it.
69] It is not just my responsibility to be aware of why there is a power struggle ongoing always between people in position of power and masses but your responsibility as well.
These verses tell mankind to be aware of their societies as to whatever is going on in there because as soon as people show lack of concern opportunists among them waiting to take their chances do so and then it leads to very serious consequences. So prevention of wrong things from happening in a proper human community is better than looking for corrections or cures for them later on after they have taken place. The Quran very clearly warns mankind about power struggles between dominant people themselves in human populations and between their agents who sell them to masses and between dominant people and the masses. Public relation agents are said to be very dangerous people who present power hungry people in good light to fool public at large. It is because if they succeed then they also get their cut from whatever they gain. The Quran leaves no corner hidden about tricks and traps or mechanisms used by rulers, money lenders, priests and their touts and supporters. This is why those who know the Quran properly cannot be fooled by these tricksters and their agents. This is the very reason mullahs have been trying their best to keep deen of Islam in hidden by covering up the actual contextual meanings of the Quranic text so that the advantaged people could use the rest abusively for their own personal gains at their expense.
70] I am informed about all this through revelation because I am assigned the mission of a clear warner for mankind, not to live by way of life founded upon the basis of personal gains at the expense of each other.
Here the Quran tells us why Allah sent his messengers one after the other to mankind after setting up a proper human community so that they draw their attention to highly important things which people should know so that after becoming aware of them they take all necessary measures to prevent them from taking place well in time. However they failed again and again and wrong things did take place and so humanity has been suffering for not playing its part as it was supposed to despite help of Allah through his revelations via his messengers. As explained already if people do not learn things through education the easy way then they must go through direct experiences to learn things the hard way. If one does not listen to others who tell him eating poisonous things is dangerous then the only way to learn for such a person is to keep eating poisonous things and face the consequences. Likewise if people do not bother to learn how to live properly in this world from the Quran then let them beat each other up due to keep doing wrong things to each other and after a very long time and a slot of painful suffering the lesson is going to be learned by them. This is why mankind are moving in the right direction be it by forcing each other that way while still being unaware about it. One either learns things the easy way or the hard way, it is up to oneself. This is how the proper education at the right time can make a lot of difference for mankind and that is the reason the Quran keeps telling people to get educated or suffer the consequences for staying ignorant.
71] The same happened when your Creator and Sustainer sent His message to the tribal chiefs the very first time through Adam saying, I am going to raise a proper human being out of an ordinary down to earth human being to bring about a proper human community based upon My advised way of life.
72] Therefore when I have completed My moulding of him into a shape I want for him by making him fully conscious of My guidance through My revelation then support him to be chief of your management committee.
After a lot of bloodshed and infighting when most of the people and their leaders got fed up with their way of life they looked to the unseen source for guidance and that is the time when Allah sent them his very first message through his very first messenger. Through this messenger Allah told people what they will have to do to get out of the way of life they already have and they did save a bunch of nasty people ie those who had a leader called Iblees they continued living that way and caused the same problem among people again but they were saved again as explained already. The lesson in these verses is clear that Allah does not guide people but gives them opportunity through his guidance to guide themselves out of terrible life into a blissful, dignified and secure life. This is why those who are waiting for good life to come and think God will have all ready for them to jump in there will remain that way because nowhere the Quran tells us that it is Allah who will do things for people and the people themselves do not need to do a thing other than just sit on a prayer mat and keep asking Allah for doing things as if he is their paid servant. People need to become sensible and do things as guided by Allah only then the results will show up as promised.
73] Therefore all the chiefs along with him submitted to My advised way of life
74] except Iblees, he refused to join those who committed themselves to live by My advised way of life for them due to seeking dominance over others by undermining them for personal gains at their expense therefore he became and remained of those who reject and oppose Our advised way of life even today.
75] However We said, O Iblees! What prevented you from committing to My advised way of life along with him whom I have raised to become the proper manager of people and resources through My revealed authority? Are you taken over by sense of dominance over others, or do you think that you are really above others in your physical strength and knowledge?
These verses tell us that divisions have been around ever since man came about and that it was always due to people’s sense of personal gains at the expense of each other and sense of dominating each other that divided mankind ie power struggle between people was always there which resulted in a lot of bloodshed and that is why when man was able to think a bit better and saw that he needed guidance from God that God sent him his guidance to live by. Even then people who were given to spreading fire of hatred did not stop and carried on till today generation after generation. This is how mankind ended up destroyed at hands of each other nation after nation and generation after generation. Only when mankind will have learned to be real human beings that such harm and destruction will come to an end. Iblees is the very first person to reject and oppose establishment of divine kingdom under the management committee headed by Aadam. Here and there small kingdoms were set up by divine messengers but they did not last long because people could not keep up with them. Same happened to kingdom that was set-up under administration of Aadam. Iblees and his supporters managed to bring it down. The struggle for bringing about the kingdom based upon guidance of Allah is therefore a very old one long before the last messenger of Allah arrived at the scene with the Quran. People have been trying harder and harder to establish a worldwide kingdom based upon guidance of Allah but so far not much has been achieved in this regard because people lack education needed for having proper understanding of the message of Allah. There are three main things people need to think about if they want the kingdom based upon guidance of Allah to come about. First, they need to become aware of religious aspect of life as to what it is and how far it can be helpful for them and when it could become a very destructive force. Second, they need to become aware of necessity for revelation of their creator and sustainer and look for it and if they wish to do so then they need to do their homework for it otherwise they can forget about it because they can never find it due to so many obstacles in its way. Third, they must realise the fact that any message of their creator and sustainer has to be based upon the language that is very clearly founded upon some common ground beyond dispute. As explained already in detail religious consciousness does not arise in people till they start growing after their birth and God is brought to their attention either by themselves or by teachings of others. It is at this stage people start looking for God and they go in different directions that interest them. At this point either people find what they are looking for or they end up as victims in hands of exploiters who use religions as tools to abuse others in the name of God for their personal gains at the expense of others. Just as people look for God so God also looks for people therefore he sends them his revelations. If people looking for God come in touch with his revelation then contact is made but for that people must prepare themselves well otherwise they will pass each other by just like people who look for each other pass each other by they do not have proper knowledge about each other which helps them recognise each other. This is why if people have not worked out ideas in their heads as to what they are looking for then they will have great difficulty in finding it. This is why mere wish or desire for God is not sufficient to lead to guidance from God. Once people do have idea what the revelation of God may contain that will help them find it. However this is only the beginning of the problems because making sense of what is said to be from God is not an easy task at all. The scripture involves a lot of reading and writing and that means it uses some words and symbols. This means people need to equip themselves with knowledge of the proper human language which was the original human language. This human language was body language or sign language from which people created coded sounds for speech we call words and finally they ended up drawing pictures of things in order to express what was in their minds as explained already in detail and that is how came about writing of those words. The next most important thing to know is mechanisms whereby people gave meanings to words which have been explained in detail already in this work. Why it is important to know mechanisms whereby words have been given meanings? Because if those mechanisms are not known then people cannot know for sure whether words have been given their meanings properly or they have been making things up by themselves to make fools of each other. The other most important point for people to note is that God is using human language to tell us about his ideas. Since people can never know mind of God no matter how hard they try and they cannot verify from God directly whatever they assume about him through his revelation is actually true or not therefore there has to be a mechanism whereby people could verify their findings about God from his revelation without being in touch with God directly. This is the main reason why knowing things about human language is of such importance. This is why this work will be found most helpful by those who are looking for proper understanding of message of God. Once people grasp the idea explained in this work then sky is the limit. The Quran is book of guidance not because it contains a complete list of all the possible instructions people will ever need for which they do not need to do a thing but an interactive book. What does that mean? It means God has given people just a bit of help through it but rest of the work is to be carried out by people themselves. This is why Allah has provided people with a very limited set of goals and guidelines so that people themselves full in the gaps through educating themselves and moving with time generation after generation. Allah did not turn human beings into fully programmed robots like rest of the universe and things in it as explained already in detail. People are special creatures with a very different mission than rest of the things in this universe this is why the Quran asks them to ponder deeply and widely over its letters, words, verses and surahs. It is because each of its letters is full of meanings, each of its words is full of meanings, each of its verses is full of meanings and each of its surah is full of meanings but it is up to people to figure things out by themselves for themselves. It is not a fully worked out thing but a jigsaw puzzle with some of its pieces already properly fitted in its places and the rest are to be fitted in their proper places by people themselves. This is how the Quran helps people to become higher level thinkers and doers. This is the main framework according to which the Quran makes perfect sense. It also shows very clearly why mullahs’ Islam is has nothing at all to do with actual deen of Islam. It is because mullahs tell us the Quran is a perfect book and prophet Muhammad is perfect example because they tell us how to live properly in this world and we do not need to do anything to figure out things for ourselves. This is why when they did not find sufficient instructions in the Quran they brought in tafaseer books ie books containing detailed explanations to add things to the Quranic text which are not actually there in the actual text of the Quran. They did the same with the Ahaadis books and went a step further by adding false reports in them. Even that did not serve their purpose so they ended up doing the very same through books of the Fiqh. This is how there came about many religions as well as many sects in each and every religion. However if people will pay due attention to this work, a lot of things will start becoming very clear about a lot of things eg religions sects, society, politics, economics, science, philosophy etc etc.
76] He replied, I can do things better than him because you have allowed me to develop into a person full of emotional energy with burning ambitions and desires to succeed against others while you allowed him to develop into a person who lacks such emotional energy and is without such ambitions and desire to succeed against others.
77] Allah said, get out of this mindset, attitude and behaviour or you will be excluding yourself from the circle of people who benefit from My guidance which can lead people to blissful, dignified and secure existence
78] and you will remain away from My such blessings till the time of establishment of the way of life based upon My guidance.
79] At this Iblees said, my Creator and Sustainer, leave me on my own till the day the mankind rise up to meet Your set standard.
When people talk to God, it is not as if they are seeing God and talking to him but this is their wish or response to his message through his messengers or missionaries. When Adam invited Iblees and his people along with all the rest to join him in bringing about a proper human community he and his supporters refused to become part of human brotherhood and he gave reasons for it. He thought he could do better than Adam if he was put in charge of things instead of Adam but Allah knew he was not as good as Adam because Adam proved himself capable of doing what he did even before he was chosen as a messenger of God. Adam already had right mindset, attitude and behaviour before he was given the job of a messenger of Allah. People were already aware of his good works for the human community so they had no problem in accepting him as their leader to manage things on their behalf and on behalf of God. There are many different kind of lessons in stories of messengers of God and their supporters and opponents etc.
80] Allah said, you are given the respite
81] till the appointed time.
82] Iblees said, I swear by Your Honour that I will try to raise similar ambitions and desires in all of them like myself
83] with exception of those of them who remain sincerely committed to Your so called guidance.
84] Allah said, that is true but true is also what I say
85] that I will let world become filled with hell of your own making along with all those who will support your way of living their lives based upon personal gains at the expense of each other.
In the story of Aadam and Iblees the argument is all about how mankind should live their lives ie should they live according to advice of Allah like Adam and his supporters as a proper human community or should they fulfil their own personal ambitions and desires like Iblees and his supporters. This was the argument always till the very last messenger. Even today most of the mankind are living their lives according to the way of life that was adopted and promoted by Iblees. The result is therefore a world that is nothing less than hell. So if any people want to change things they in this world they must adopt the teachings of the Quran as explained in detail.
86] Say, I do not ask you for any reward for conveying this message to you, nor do I pretend to be what I am not.
87] This Quran is nothing less than a program for giving all nations in the world a dignified, blissful and secure life,
88] and you will certainly see an example of this news come true before long.
The last messenger of Allah established a kingdom based upon guidance of Allah within 15 years of his prophetic life. All messengers of Allah accomplished an exemplary ummah and an exemplary kingdom based upon guidance of Allah be it a very small one. The final messenger established the greatest exemplary kingdom based upon guidance of Allah. The worldwide kingdom based upon guidance of Allah is about to become a reality as humanity becomes fed up with the way of life it has adopted for itself for a long time now which is based upon personal gains at the expense of each other and turns to deen of Islam.
