The Command to Follow the Revelation

Allah commands His Messenger and those who followed his path,

اتَّبِعْ مَا أُوحِيَ إِلَيْكَ مِن رَّبِّكَ

Follow what has been inspired to you from your Lord,

meaning, follow it, obey it and act according to it. What has been revealed to you from your Lord is the Truth, no doubt, and there is no deity worthy of worship except Him,

لاا إِلَـهَ إِلااَّ هُوَ

none has the right to be worshipped but He,

وَأَعْرِضْ عَنِ الْمُشْرِكِينَ



and turn aside from the idolators.

meaning, forgive them, be forbearing and endure their harm until Allah brings relief to you, supports you and makes you triumphant over them. Know -- O Muhammad -- that there is a wisdom behind misleading the idolators, and that had Allah willed, He would have directed all people to guidance
