* تفسير Al Qushairi Tafsir

{ وَأَطِيعُواْ ٱللَّهَ وَٱلرَّسُولَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ }

And obey God and the Messenger so that you may find mercy. [God] tied obedience to the Messenger ﷺ to obedience to Himself. This was to elevate [the Prophet's] rank and to make things easier for the com- munity by handing them over to the company of an individual who was one of them. It is more reassuring to be with one's own kind.
