Interpretation Of Allah'S Rule Of Punishment Or Annihilation?
What is the current interpretation of Allah’s rule of punishment or annihilation of a community after a messenger is sent when now the Qur’an seem to be the current messenger of Allah among us?
Allah’s rule that he sends a messenger to a community and if the community refuses to listen to a messenger, Allah either punishes or annihilates that community.
Allah sent the messengers to various communities in the past because communities were isolated and there was no quick or long-lasting mode of travel or communication among communities.
Once humans were advanced enough in travel and communication, Allah sent his last messenger prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and Allah’s final message, the Qur’an.
There was no need for additional messengers because the whole world has become one community and the communication of information and retention of information has become so advanced that it is unlikely that anyone on earth would be unable to get Allah’s message; especially if he/she wanted to look for the message.
Considering the above, it seems like the current messenger of Allah among us is Qur’an (there is no need for a physical human being). Qur’an replaces the need for a messenger. So, in a sense Qur’an is a messenger of Allah among us.
So, doesn’t it seem like the Allah’s rule of punishment and annihilation of community still applies at this time?
