The Glorious Qur’an did not adopt a single way of conveying the message of monotheism to people, but it employed different types of speech to teach people their religion. One of the top methods used by the Qur’an is narration of the stories of the preceding world nations who came before the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
The Qur’an narrated to us detailed parts of their stories, their stances with their Prophets, the places where they raised up and the reward or punishment of God to them in relation to their religious practice and following.
The examples of the narration method are widespread in the Qur’an, such as the stories of Adam and Eve, Prophet Nuh (Noah, peace be upon him), Ibrahim (Abraham, peace be upon him), Musa (Moses, peace be upon him), `Isa (Jesus, peace be upon him), etc. Almighty Allah has used this method to let us learn lessons from the life of those people. He (Glory be to Him) says,
There was certainly in their stories a lesson for those of understanding. Never was the Qur’an a narration invented, but a confirmation of what was before it and a detailed explanation of all things and guidance and mercy for a people who believe. (Yusuf 12:111)
The same should be done nowadays with the current events befalling the world. We need to have a scrutinizing look on what is going around and contemplate the signs of God’s Command over us. As Muslims, we believe in a creator who brought this universe into existence from nothing and He is the utmost Controller of its affair. Nothing happens here or there except with His permission. He is the All-Powerful and Omnipotent.
