Treasure and Angel

فَلَعَلَّکَ تَارِکٌ بَعْضَ مَا یُوحَی إِلَیْکَ وَضَآءِقٌ بِہِ صَدْرُکَ أَن یَقُولُواْ لَوْلاَ أُنزِلَ عَلَیْہِ کَنزٌ أَوْ جَاء مَعَہُ مَلَکٌ إِنَّمَا أَنتَ نَذِیْرٌ وَاللّہُ عَلَی کُلِّ شَیْْءٍ وَکِیْلٌ

They (disbelievers) imagine that thou art now perhaps going to abandon part of which has been revealed to thee; and thy bosom is becoming straitened thereby because they say, ‘wherefore has not a treasure been sent down to him or an angel come with him?’ Verily, thou art only a Warner, and Allah is Guardian over all things. [11:13]

The study of the Holy Quran: [2:119]; [41:44]; [51:53, 54] reveals that the opponents of all the Prophets raise the same kind of objections, against the Prophets, in every age and time.

In the above mentioned verse of Sura Hud Allah says that non-believers of Makka say that why the Holy Prophet Muhammadsa had no treasure with him and no angel came with him.

Rejecting these notions of non-believers Allah says that Prophets are warners and do not distribute the treasures or come with ostensible angels.

Interestingly, following the foot-steps of earlier non-believers, non-Ahmadi Muslim scholars raise the same objection about the Promised Messiahas that Hadhrat Isaas is supposed to bring treasures which he shall distribute among people and that two angels shall come with him. They reject the claim of the Promised Messiahas on the same basis on which non-believers of Makka rejected the Holy Prophet Muhammadsa that how can he be a true prophet while he has no treasure to distribute and no angle came with him.
