Quranic Verse – Every Messenger was Human and their Miracles were by Allah’s Permission

“And indeed We sent Messengers before you, and made for them wives and offspring. And it was not for a Messenger to bring a sign except by Allah’s leave. (For) every matter there is a decree (from Allah).”

Surah Ar-Ra’d (13:38)

Interpretation of the meaning (Tafsir Ibn Kathir):

All Prophets and Messengers were Humans:

Allah says, `Just as We have sent you O Muhammad, a Prophet and a human, We sent the Messengers before you from among mankind, that eat food, walk in the markets, and We gave them wives and offspring.’ Allah said to the most honorable and Final Messenger, “Say: “I am only a man like you. It has been revealed to me.” (18:110)

No Prophet can bring a Miracle except by Allah’s Leave:

Allah said, “And it was not for a Messenger to bring a sign except by Allah’s leave.” – meaning, no Prophet could have brought a miracle to his people except by Allah’s permission and will, for this matter is only decided by Allah the Exalted and Most Honored, not the Prophets; surely Allah does what He wills and decides what He wills.

(For) every matter there is a decree (from Allah).” – for every term appointed, there is a record (or decree) that keeps it, and everything has a specific due measure with Allah, “Know you not that Allah knows all that is in the heaven and on the earth Verily, it is (all) in the Book. Verily, that is easy for Allah.“(22:70)
