Surah Al-Furqan Verse 7 [25:7]

وَقَالُوا۟ مَالِ هَٰذَا ٱلرَّسُولِ يَأْكُلُ ٱلطَّعَامَ وَيَمْشِى فِى ٱلْأَسْوَاقِ لَوْلَآ أُنزِلَ إِلَيْهِ مَلَكٌ فَيَكُونَ مَعَهُۥ نَذِيرًا ﴿7﴾

And they say, “What a messenger he is! He eats food and walks in the markets! And why isn’t an angel sent down along with him to be a warner?

Commentary Surah Al-Furqan Verse 7 [25:7]

God has chosen all of His messenger from among the human being, He chose the wisest and the most righteous men. Because a messenger should be able to communicate with the people and understand their problem until he become able to guide people with open eyes and insight and people should understand that they can follow him because he is a human being and whatever he commands is not beyond the capacity of the mankind but the disbelievers pretexted that the messenger should be angel or like an angel, so they say what a messenger Muhammad is? A messenger should not eat or he should not walk with people in the markets, so they draw conclusion that Muhammad is not a messenger or he is not suitable messenger.

They did not follow messenger to see the convincing evidences, so they claimed why an angel did not come to him while sometimes God sent the messages with an angel, Gabriel. Or they used to analyze the conditions with materialistic attitudes, so they said why did not God give a palace or a great garden to him? Or they blamed the messenger that he is insane and the people should not follow an insane man. They did their best to destroy the image of the messenger but they could not. God replies that the examples they give and the way they draw conclusion is surprising. They do not follow reason to find divine traces in the teachings of the messengers. God continues that he is glorified if he wills he gives to his messenger the palace and the gardens and He will certainly will give to him in the hereafter. The life of this world is temporary and it is like a bridge through which people should go to the hereafter, so people should get ready for their permanent life.
