Explanation of Last 2 ayats of Surah Taubah
These are the last verses of Sirah Al-Taubah where it has been declared that the Holy Prophet Sallalahu alaihe wa sallam is very kind and merciful for the entire creation of Allah, particularly so for Muslims.
Then, in the last verse, he has been told that he should observe patience and trust Allah even if there are people who do not come to believe despite all his efforts.
That this theme appears at the end of surah Al-Taubah happens to be very appropriate. It will be recalled that this Surah has been full of references to the declaration of withdrawal from the disbelievers, the ultimate severance of relationship with them and then fighting in Jihad against them.
This is, however, the last resort of the Call to Allah subject to the condition that the initial steps of Da’wah (call) and Tabligh (communication of the Message) leave no hope of correction and betterment.But, the basic function of the prophets is to invite people to the way of Allah with love, affection, sympathy and an earnest desire for their well-being; if they have to face aversion from the people or have to suffer some hardships, they are supposed to leave it to Allah and place their trust in Him, for He is the Lord of the Great Throne.
By saying the Rabb or Lord of the Great ‘Arsh, the purpose is to lay stress on the fact that He encompasses the entire creation.
