Today's thought for the Day comes from: (Al Qura'an) "S33:A40". This one sentence summerises/clarifies at the root of aII those objections which the opponents were raising in connection with this marriage of the Holy Prophet, (Refer S33:A37-38). Their first objection was that he had married his own daughter-in-law, whereas according to his own law the son's wife is forbidden for the father. This was answered by saying: "Muhammad is not the father of any of your men." That is, Zaid was not his real son, and so it was not unlawful to marry his divorced wife.
Their second objection was that even if his adopted son was not his real son, it was not necessary that he should have marred his divorced wife. This was answered by saying: ''. . .but he is the Messenger of AIlah." That is, it was his duty as the Messenger of Allah to put an end to all kinds of prejudices about a lawful thing which custom and tradition had made unlawful without good reason and declare it to be lawful once again. The point was stressed by saying: "...and (he is) the last of the Prophets." That is, not to speak of a Messenger, no other Prophet would be raised after him, who could make up for a possible deficiency in the enforcement of a reform in the law and society that might have been left un-enforced in his time. Therefore, it had become all the more necessary that he should himself root out the custom of ignorance.
Act for the Day is: To understand that when a Document is sealed, it is complete, and there can be no further addition. The Holy Prophet Muhammed (Sallellahu Alaihi Wasallam) closed the long line of Messengers. Allah's teaching is and will always be continuous, but there has been and will be no prophet after Muhammed, (PBUH). Jazakum Allah khair
