The Messenger believeth in what hath been revealed to him from his Lord, as do the men of faith. Each one (of them) believeth in Allah, His angels, His books, and His apostles. "We make no distinction (they say) between one and another of His apostles." And they say: "We hear, and we obey: (We seek) Thy forgiveness, our Lord, and to Thee is the end of all journeys." (Quran 2:285)
Ayas 285-286 were revealed in the “Hujjat al-Wida’a” the last sermon of Prophet (peace be upon him) and reflect strong call for belief and devotion to follow Allah’s will. As last words they sum up the message of prophecy and give general outlook on Islam. They are very important teachings. The only faith is if we belive in Allah and His Angels, His Scriptures and His Prophets. There is no difference between Prophets! Quran uses plural form! Islam is uniting the nations and religions of monotheism. In the last aya there is a common prayer what we say together with all who believe and ask Allah in order to save us from sins and burdens what were committed and carried by those who were before us.
The two ayas are frequently prayed as Du’a in prayers.
On no soul doth Allah Place a burden greater than it can bear. It gets every good that it earns, and it suffers every ill that it earns. (Pray:) "Our Lord! Condemn us not if we forget or fall into error; our Lord! Lay not on us a burden Like that which Thou didst lay on those before us; Our Lord! Lay not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear. Blot out our sins, and grant us forgiveness. Have mercy on us. Thou art our Protector; Help us against those who stand against faith." (Quran 2:286)
Notice well: "We hear, and we obey: (We seek) Thy forgiveness, our Lord, and to Thee is the end of all journeys." We have not heard the sheik and obey! We have not heard and obey the prime minister! We have not heard and obey the CIA, Mossad, the KGB, but You (SWT)! This is the difference between us and the terrorists! They want to obey an order they invent by their own and squeeze others into it. And this order is not usually invented by them, but by Hollywood, or the former organizations, because they are just tools, proxies! The subject of our obedience is precisely listed in ayas 285-286. It merges us together with the other believers, it is the real Sharia that is being twisted, misinterpreted, caused fear by it. Although, if it would be understood and would be applied, a lot of shit and intrigue would disappear.
