refers to the revelation.

This is like the Ayat;

وَكَذَلِكَ أَوْحَيْنَأ إِلَيْكَ رُوحاً مِّنْ أَمْرِنَا مَا كُنتَ تَدْرِى مَا الْكِتَـبُ وَلَا الاِيمَـنُ وَلَـكِن جَعَلْنَـهُ نُوراً نَّهْدِى بِهِ مَن نَّشَأءُ مِنْ عِبَادِنَا

And thus We have sent to you a Ruh (revelation) by Our command. You knew not what is the Book, nor what is the faith. But We have made it a light by which We guide whomever We will among Our servants. (43;52)

مِنْ أَمْرِهِ عَلَى مَن يَشَاء مِنْ عِبَادِهِ

to those servants of His whom He wills,

meaning the Prophets, as Allah says;

اللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ حَيْثُ يَجْعَلُ رِسَالَتَهُ

Allah best knows where to place His Message. (6;124)

اللَّهُ يَصْطَفِى مِنَ الْمَلَـيِكَةِ رُسُلً وَمِنَ النَّاسِ

Allah chooses Messengers from angels and from men. (22;75)

رَفِيعُ الدَّرَجَـتِ ذُو الْعَرْشِ يُلْقِى الرُّوحَ مِنْ أَمْرِهِ عَلَى مَن يَشَأءُ مِنْ عِبَادِهِ لِيُنذِرَ يَوْمَ التَّلَقِ

يَوْمَ هُم بَـرِزُونَ لَا يَخْفَى عَلَى اللَّهِ مِنْهُمْ شَىْءٌ لِّمَنِ الْمُلْكُ الْيَوْمَ لِلَّهِ الْوَحِدِ الْقَهَّارِ

He sends the Ruh (revelation) by His command to whoever among His servants He wills to, that he may warn of the Day of Meeting.

The Day when they will (all) come out, nothing about them will be hidden from Allah. Whose is the kingdom this Day;It is Allah's, the One, the Irresistible! (40;15-16)

أَنْ أَنذِرُواْ

(saying);"Warn..."

meaning that they should alert them.

أَنَّهُ لَا إِلَـهَ إِلاَّ أَنَاْ فَاتَّقُونِ



that none has the right to be worshipped but I, so have Taqwa of Me.

means, `fear My punishment, if you go against My commands and worship anything other than Me.
