The Proof for following the Messenger #2: Being content and hopeful for the prophets decisions
Allah said : ” Would that they were contented with what Allah and His Messenger gave them and had said: “Allah is Sufficient for us. Allah will give us of His Bounty, and (also) His Messenger (from alms, etc.), we are desirous toward Allah” (it would have been better for them).” (At-Tawbah 9 : 59)
The very fact that Allah himself here is not only clarifying but also stipulating obeying the Prophet , his decisions and also keeping hope from the prophet as a factor of success . He is very clear in differentiating the commands and roles of himself with that of his Messenger by using “and” many times in the same verse.
