RASÛL - رسول
A Prophet. A Messenger, who is sent by Allah with a new book and Sharî’ah to an ummah or all humanity. If a Prophet follows the book and the Sharî’ah of a former Rasûl, without having the new ones, he is called a Nabi.
That master is both the ‘abd; in point of ‘ubûdiyyah, he describes and makes his Rabb known; he is the envoy of his ummah at the Court of Janâb-i Haqq. He is also a rasûl; in point of messengership, he conveys (tablîgh) his Rabb’s decree to the jinn and mankind by means of the Qur’an.
