Sure 6 Verse 14
« on: September 21, 2021, 01:00:50 PM »
Selam aleykum

i have a question about a verse in quran

in sura 6 verse 14 stands


Say, “Shall I choose as a supporter someone other than Allah, Who is the Originator of the heavens and the earth and Who feeds and does not need to eat?” Say, “I have been ordered to be the first to submit myself (to Him), and O people, do not be of the polytheists.”

So it says that the Prohfet Muhammed is the first who surrenders to allah, only then there is no mistake because the first who surrenders was not the Prohfet Muhammed but Adam. I ask you to tell the answer what this has to do with

Wa Alaikum As'salam,

‏6:14 قل اغير الله اتخذ وليا فاطر السماوات والارض وهو يطعم ولايطعم قل اني امرت ان اكون اول من اسلم ولاتكونن من المشركين

[006:014]  Say: "Shall I take for my protector any other than God, the Maker of the heavens and the earth? And He it is that feedeth but is not fed." Say: "Nay! but I am commanded to be the first leading one from among of those who bow to God (in Islam), and be not thou of the company of those who join gods with God."

اول AWWAL means first and also means leading one.  In other words, the Noble Verse is saying you should always do your best to be among the leading Muslims in good example.


The Noble Word is similar to the English words "top" and "best".  There is only one top and one best.  But the two words are also used for leading people:  "top ones"; "best ones".  Among the top ones and among the best ones.

Take care,
Osama Abdallah

God was teaching the messenger on how to be firmed with the polytheists. When interacting with Arab polytheists, the messenger will definitely say he is awwal since none among the polytheist receive any command prior to the messenger.

Jazaka Allah Khayr, brother Thinker.  While your answer is 100% correct, but the Prophet would not have been the first Muslim there existed true unitarians in the land that he was in.  Allah Almighty did categorize them in Noble Verse 5:44:

اسلموا للذين هادوا والربانيون والاحبار

The ones who Haadu (the Jews), Rabbaniyoon (ones who believe in the One GOD Almighty), and Ahbaar (also unitarians similar to the ones before them).  Among those were true Muslims in Arabia and among the Arabs even before Prophet Muhammad was born:

There are even references that our mother Khadijah (the Prophet's first wife) was from among them.  She wasn't a pagan.

Be as it may, both of our answers are 100% accurate.  I believe mine is a broader, because AWWAL here wouldn't necessarily have to mean the literally first person, but rather the leading one or the best one.

Muhammad was the first Muslim in the world in his time. In another verse, it is said that Moses was the first person to believe. Because Moses was the first believer of his time.
