CHAPTER 2: EVIDENCE ON FIRST MATTER

Evidence on the Matter that “Allaah created us and provided sustenance for us, and He did not leave us without a purpose rather He sent Messengers to us. So whoever obeys him will enter Paradise, and whoever rejects and disobeys him will enter the Fire, is the Saying of the Most High:
“We sent a Messenger to you, o people, as a witness in favor of you or against you on the Day of Resurrection, just as We sent a Messenger to the Pharaoh. But the Pharaoh denied and rejected
the Messenger, so We seized him with a severe punishment.”
[Soorat al Muzzammil: 15-16]
Let’s look at the details of these ayah.
إِنَّآ أَرْسَلْنَآ إِلَيْكُمْ رَسُولاً شَـهِداً عَلَيْكُمْ
Inna (We)” refers to Allah, this is a pronoun of one declaring his own greatness, because He is the most tremendous, the Perfect and the Most High.
“We sent”, likewise is showing the greatness and the meaning of  “arsalna” is We sent him and sent  revelation to him.
The word “alaiykum” addresses the disbelievers of the Quraysh, and along with them the rest of mankind because the “risalah” (messengership) of Messenger ﷺ is universal for all mankind until the Hour is established.
كَمَآ أَرْسَلْنَآ إِلَى فِرْعَوْنَ رَسُولاً – فَعَصَى فِرْعَوْنُ الرَّسُولَ فَأَخَذْنَـهُ أَخْذاً وَبِيلاً

 Your Messenger is like the Messenger to Fir`awn, and You know what happened to Fir`awn. He disobeyed the Messenger; so We seized him with a severe punishment. The wisdom in the sending of the messengers – to establish the proof upon the people, who refuse, deny and disbelieve and to guide whomever Allah wished to guide.

أَخْذاً وَبِيلاً

severe punishment” Ibn Abbas, said that this means `you should beware of denying this Messenger, lest you be afflicted by that which befell Fir`awn. Allah seized him with the seizing of One Mighty and Powerful.

This is as Allah says,

فَأَخَذَهُ اللَّهُ نَكَالَ الاٌّخِرَةِ وَالاٍّوْلَى

So Allah seized him with punishment for his last and first transgression. (79:25)

Therefore, you will be even more deserving of destruction and ruin if you deny your Messenger, because your Messenger is more noble and a greater than Prophet Musa, the son of `Imran.’ This has been reported from Ibn `Abbas and Mujahid.
