The most significant proof is in the Surah of Hud regarding the New Revelation of Baha’u’llah.
11:120 – All that We relate to thee of the stories of the apostles — with it We make firm thy heart: in them there cometh to thee the Truth, as well as an exhortation and a message of remembrance to those who believe.
(The Qur’an (Yusuf Ali tr), Surah 11)
Have you read the Surah of Hud? it is story after story of Messengers, Saleh, Hud, Noah, that came unto the people, but the people rejected them. Consequently, the people suffered. Again and again, Messenger after Messenger, rejected rejected rejected. the people were wrong.
This line summerises the point of the Surah itself. and what other meaning could this POSSIBLY HAVE than that another messenger will come
keeping in mind that the entire Surah of Hud is story after story of Messenger whos people rejected them, and thus the people were lost.
exhortation to WHAT?
and rememberence? Rememberence as seen through these translations is clearly to the impact of a warning, and rodwell even translates it as a warning.
Read the Surah of Hud for yourself, to show im not picking and choosing here what else could this possibly refer to other than the coming another Messenger that the believers MUST accept. I have said this to many Muslims, and they always change the subject because they know they cant answer it. sometimes they will argue that it is speaking to the pagans of the time, warning and guiding them to accept Muhammad. but this is clearly untrue since it says FOR THE BELIEVERS !
#1. in that case: how would u define ‘believers'(?) those who have rejected Baha’u’llah would not be included, would they(?) also, if ‘believers’ be muslims: in that case it would be precluding christians, jews, hindus, buddhists and others.
#2. also, the entire message of quran is for ‘believers’. quran says those who disbelieve will not benefit in any way from the message. since it is widely accpeted that most of the population already believed in other gods, they would have been, by default, disbelievers, and as such out of quran’s field of effect. Believers is used all over the Quran as the people of the Quran which lasts throughout the Dispensation to the point of Resurrection in 1260 AH. They can be believers at one time, and then go astray.
And no, Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Zoroastrians, and Hindus are not “believers” according to the Quran but that verse is a reminder only to muslims, and would go against the very grain of bahaullah’s message that all religions proclaim the truth.
Koran 2:62 – Those who believe (in the Qur’án) and those who follow the Jewish (Scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians, and who believe in Allah and the last day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.
