Third type: The command of Allah to obey the Apostle individually:

1 - Allah –Blessed and Exalted He be – said: (But no, by the Lord, they can have no (real) Faith, until they make you judge in all disputes between them, and find in their souls no resistance against your decisions, but accept them with the fullest conviction) [An-Nisa’/65].

2 - And the Almighty said: (Then let those beware who withstand the Messenger’s order, lest some trial befall them, or a grievous penalty be inflicted on them) [An-Nur/63].

3 - And the Almighty said: (Only those are believers, who believe in Allah and His Messenger. When they are with him on a matter requiring collective action, they do not depart until they have asked for his leave) [An-Nur/62].

4 - The Almighty said: (Say: If you do love Allah, Follow me: Allah will love you) [Al'mran/31].

5 - And the Almighty said: (So establish regular Prayer and give regular Charity; and obey the Messenger, that you may receive mercy) [An-Nur/56].

6 - And the Almighty said: (So believe in Allah and His Messenger, the Unlettered Prophet, who believes in Allah and His words: follow him that (so) you may be guided) [Al-A’Raf/158].

7 - And the Almighty said: (He who obeys the Messenger, has obeyed Allah. But if any turn away: We have not sent you to watch over their (evil deeds)) [An-Nisa’/80].

8 - And the Almighty said: (So take what the Messenger assigns to you, and deny yourselves that which he withholds from you. And fear Allah, for Allah is strict in Punishment) [Al-Hashr/7].

These verses, the viewer sees therein at first glance the most powerful aspect of significance of the need to obey the Apostle - peace and blessings of Allah be upon him -, which is one of the two types of indication on the allegory of the explicit Sunnah, as none of the two needs to deduce the aspect of significance from the essence of the word, as it all emphasise by means of the explicit text on the necessity to obey the Messenger–peace and blessings of Allah be upon him–or his following, or adopting what he came up with, or acceptance of his judgement with the fullest conviction, or other than that.

The verses in this type indicated the necessity for obedience, and the prohibition of disobedience, and pursued various approaches in making that clear, where the means of promise and good tidings were diversified, advice and persuasion and incitement to follow and obey the Messenger, and also the varied expressions of threat, warning, fear, intimidation from his contravention, deviation from the meanings of his orders and not submit to his rules.

It also, in its threats on the contravention of the orders of the Apostle –peace and blessings of Allah be upon him– pursues several different pathways, Sometimes Allah threatens them by tribulations befalling them, and in tribulations ordeals and indignations in religion and in this life, and sometimes threatens them with painful punishment befalling them, and some other times passes the verdict of relegation of faith on the rogue outlaws who do not surrender to his rule, and Allah does not relegate the faith only; but He- Blessed and Exalted He be- takes an oath on His divinity, an oath - rarely used by Allah in the Quran - He took this oath as a testimony to the intense confirmation of the oath due to His deep consideration for it, and sometimes by that whose severity, and the amount of its punishment are only known by Him, He did not confine it by a , nor did He limit it to a type and restrict it to some sort of agony and woe, but unleashes it without specification, as if it carries all the forms of horror and doom, until those threatened resort to all sorts of imaginations, the Almighty said: (But if any turn away, We have not sent you to watch over their (evil deeds), and the Almighty said: (Allah is strict in Punishment).

As the verses took in their threat such forms that reflect the anger of Allah the Almighty, so were the words of promise, to the obedient adherents in the verses, various and relate all kinds of satisfaction. They express what Allah holds for those obedient to His Messenger, those who comply with His rules, of abundant reward. They (the verses) sometimes lure them with mercy, sometimes promise them guidance, and sometimes affirm to them a promise before which every other promise fades and souls long to reach out to. The Almighty said: (follow me, Allah will love you), and sometimes He casts the reward unconditionally and sends it in a way so that every follower of a doctrine goes the way he likes, and everybody thinks about its sort, type, its makeup and its essence, and whatever he could assess the appreciation of. The Almighty said: (Allah will soon grant him a great Reward).
