The Sealed Nectar

 The Sealed Nectar by Shaykh Safi ur-Rahman

Muhammad (peace be upun him) through revelation from God (whose proper name in the Arabic language is "Allah") , transferred humanity from obedience and submission to other human beings to the worship and submission to Allah, the Exalted , alone, associating nothing with Him. Consequently, humanity became free from servitude to anyone other than Allah and that is the greatest honor bestowed on humanity.

The prevailing condition before Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upun him) mission was a class system based on tribal loyalties, financial supremacy and slavery. The wealthy and influential leaders were masters to be obeyed and served, while the poor and colored (mostly blacks) were servants and submissive followers. Slaves were no more than material possessions which a person could own, buy, sell or give away without the least consideration of human feelings when separating a parent and child or a husband and wife through such dealings.

The masters of society would impose customs and conditions bordering on legislation, compelling the people to submit to them. They had set themselves up as rivals in authority to the one true God, while He alone is worthy of worship and obedience. All people, whether white, black, rich, poor, highborn or slave should be subject only to the authority of Allah and His judgement. It is for this purpose that He sent His Prophet, Muhammad (peace be upun him), with the message of Islam as represented in the testimony:
"There is no [true] god except Allah, and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah."

Paganism was practiced in the form of idol worship, the worship of statues, trees and stones. In contrast, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upun him) invited people to acknowledge the unity of God in His lordship, His divinity and His right to unconditional worship and obedience alone. For He said in the Qur'an:
"O mankind, worship your Lord, who created you and those before you, that you may become righteous." (2:21)
And He said:
"O people, an example is presented, so listen to it. Indeed, those you invoke besides Allah will never create as much as a fly, even if they gathered together for it. And if the fly should steal from them a [tiny] thing, they could not recover it from him. Weak are the pursuer and pursued." (22:73)

One of the Prophet's (peace be upun him) companions described the transformation, which Islam brought to the life of the Arabs from dishonor and slavery to honor and dignity; how they left the darkness of servitude to people, for the worship of Allah alone. This enabled them to perceive the true scope and capacity of this world. As Rab`i ibn `Amir said when addressing a Persian general,
"Allah has sent us to liberate whoever wishes, from the worship of His servants to the worship of Allah, from the restriction of this world to its vastness and from the tyranny of other religions to the justice of Islam.”

The Frenchman, Etienne Denier (who took the name "Nasiruddin"), speaks in his book entitled “Muhammad (peace be upun him), the Messenger of Allah” about the balance, universality and possible future role of the divine message. He says:
"A very important thing is the absence of an intermediary between a person and his Lord. This is what practical minded people find in Islam, due to its freedom from mystery and saint worship. It has no need for temples and shrines because all of the earth is a suitable place for the worship of God. Moreover, some of those who believe in God while expressing higher aspirations can find in Islam a pure perspective regarding belief in God. They will find therein the most extraordinary and sublime acts of worship and unimaginable expressions of supplication."
