THE REAL MESSENGERS:
The sense of pain, the fears, the anxieties, the worries, inner voices, the urges, hopes, assurances, the gut feelings, inspirations, confidence, courage, happiness, sadness and the curiosities are the only true messengers and warners of God, plus they even speak in our own language. We don't have to learn their languages it is easy to understand but we seldom give heed to them. This is what Rumi meant when he said pains or signs/ayaats you feel or experience are God’s messengers listen to them and overcome / conquer your shortcomings.
But we are busy revering human messengers, searching to locate their exact birth places, their culture. We even try to decode their dead languages by making tremendous efforts to learn and pronounce it properly, learning grammar in order to know the true message. In the process we are missing the signs [Ayaat] within and all around us which the inherent messengers provoke us time and again to take heed of.
رَبَّنَا وَابْعَثْ فِيهِمْ رَسُولاً مِّنْهُمْ يَتْلُو عَلَيْهِمْ آيَاتِكَ وَيُعَلِّمُهُمُ الْكِتَابَ وَالْحِكْمَةَ وَيُزَكِّيهِمْ إِنَّكَ أَنتَ العَزِيزُ الحَكِيمُ
Our Rabb, and raise in them a Rasul from them (who) follow/recites upon them Your ayaat/signs and He teaches/instructs them the script, and the wisdom , and grow them, that You are the glorious/mighty the wise/ judicious.
