When the earlier communities left the straight way, Allah sent His chosen servants from among them to guide them to the truth and save them from disbelief and polytheism. These servants of Allah instructed them in the oneness of Allah and the purpose of their life. They demonstrated what they used to preach, holding the highest positions in their respective societies in terms of faith, character and conduct. Even their worst enemies could not find fault with their morals. Common to all was the teaching of one God. They urged their communities to worship the One True God and that there is no god besides Allah. They never compromised on this doctrine. They had no personal motive behind their mission, but worked selflessly for the welfare of mankind. They asked for no reward or wages, as they knew they were to be rewarded only by Allah. The guidance which they received from Allah is known as divine revelation. Obeying them means obeying Allah. Conversely, disregarding Messengers amounts to rejecting Allah. The Quran describes some Messengers at length. Many are, however, mentioned only in passing, without any details. The total number of Messengers is put at 124,000. They were all truthful and were the best and most distinguished servants of Allah.

جب کوئی چیز گم ہوجائے

 اَللّٰهُمَّ رَآدَّ الضَّآلَّةِ وَ هَادِيَ الضَّآلَّةِ أَنْتَ تَهْدِيْ مِنَ الضَّلَالَةِ اُرْدُدْ عَلَيَّ ضَآلَّتِيْ بِقُدْرَتِكَ وَ سُلْطَانِكَ فَاِنَّهَا مِنْ عَطَآءِكَ وَ فَضْلِكَ اِنَّا لِلہِ وَ اِنَّا اِلَیْهِ رَاجِعُوْنَ.

ترجمہ: یا اللّٰہ! اے گمشدہ چیز کے لوٹانے والے، گمراہوں کو راستہ دکھانے والے، تو ہی گمراہی میں راستہ دکھاتا ہے، میری کھوئی ہوئی چیز اپنی قدرت اور سلطنت کے وسیلے سے لوٹا دے کیونکہ وہ تیری ہی عطا اور فضل سے ہے۔
