Why did God send Prophets?

Man, who has mind and conscience, thought about both the world he lives in and his own creation and tried to find answers to questions related to these issues in every age. Man found some realities as a result of these efforts, with his limited mind and knowledge but he wasn’t able to find satisfactory answers to his questions. Satisfactory answers were learnt from the divine messages received through prophets. The following is stated in the Quran related to this issue:

 “We have sent among you a Messenger of your own rehearsing to you Our signs, and purifying you, and instructing you in Scripture and wisdom, and in new Knowledge.” (al-Baqara, 151.)

A verse:

 “Allah did confer a great favor on the Believers when He sent among them a Messenger from among themselves, rehearsing unto them the Signs of Allah, sanctifying them, and instructing them in Scripture and Wisdom” (Aal-e- Imran, 164).

“If an incomprehensible book has no author, it consists only of meaningless paper.” Sözler (Words)


Prophets were sent in order to teach men how to worship their Lord. It is a reality that man needs a guide to teach him the types of worship like prayer, fasting, almsgiving etc stated in the Quran. The Lord gave men endless blessings. Men can learn how to thank their Lord only through prophets that are sent.

An artist who produces a valuable work of art wants to show this work to people who are good at art, to receive their admiration and appreciation and wants himself to be known.  He sometimes holds a general exhibition where he displays all of his works. He appoints an attendant to inform people about, to explain and to show the exhibition.

Similarly, Allah created conscious beings to show the manifestation of His endless perfection and beauty attributes. The most superior of these beings are men. No doubt, there is a need for an interpreter to understand the exhibition of the universe. This guidance is the work of Prophets. The universe is like a book in terms of conveying the names and attributes of Allah. There is a need for Prophets to teach this book to mankind.

“Man needs a Prophet that will necessarily hold the scales and the divine justice. “Pre-Eternal Power, which does not leave ants without a prince, or bees without a queen, certainly does not leave mankind without prophets. The secret of the order of the world wants it to be like that, no doubt.” (Seeds of Reality)

Prophets are distinguished people whom Allah appoints out of His grace to guide and enlighten men. Allah informed Prophets the divine judgments through revelation and appointed them to convey and explain them to men. In the Quran the following is stated: “The Messenger’s duty is but to proclaim (the Message)” al-Maeda 99.

Man, who has mind and conscience, thought about both the world he lives in and his own creation in every age. However, he found answers, sufficient and correct information related to these issues through prophets. In addition, The Lord gave men a lot of blessings. Men can learn how to thank their Lord only through prophets that are sent. The information about how to worship Allah was also taught about the Prophets.

Man was created in such a way to live in a community. Therefore, there is a need for the principles brought by Prophets to arrange all of the social and legal procedures sagaciously among the individuals that form the community. Otherwise the establishment of peace, security, justice, reliance, social assistance and solidarity, brotherhood, fraternity, affection, love and respect will not be in the expected level.  Despite the material and technical advancement of today’s communities, their social problems have increased because of their deprivation from the criteria brought by Prophets. The peace and happiness of the family have disappeared. The social abyss between the social layers has increased.
