﴿15﴾ فَلِذَلِكَ فَادْعُ وَاسْتَقِمْ كَمَا أُمِرْتَ وَلا تَتَّبِعْ أَهْوَاءَهُمْ
blessed Verse is addressing the Noble Prophet (SAW) saying: “O Muhammad! When the People of the Book entertain doubts as to the Divine source of the Revelation of the Holy Qur'an and your Divine Call owing to their illusions, do not desist from guiding them and propagation of the Islamic faith, but as per your Divine Call stand firm and strive hard on your way so that your doubts may turn into certainty. Do not follow their vain and concupiscent desires and speak according to their beliefs and ways. It is quoted from Tibyān that Mughayra asked the Noble Prophet (SAW) to desist from his call and he would grant half of his property to him in return. 'Utba also asked the Noble Prophet (SAW) to desist from his call and he will marry his daughter to him. Thus, the blessed Verse was revealed. However, the blessed Verse is applicable in other issues as well. God Almighty says unto His Messenger (SAW): “Say that you are submitted to My Command and I shall act according to Qur'anic Injunctions since you are appointed to judge amongst them with justice.” The blessed Verse is apparently saying that the Noble Prophet (SAW) is appointed to establish harmony and consensus amongst people such that they all stand firm as to the true religion. Following imparting the Divine Message unto people and stood firm in imparting Divine Guidance and tolerated their wrong doing patiently but lost his hope in guiding them, he said: “Your Lord and My Lord is Allah. We shall bear the consequences of our deeds as you shall bear yours. Now that you are provided with Divine decisive Argument, there remains no excuse for you in this world. There should exist neither enmity nor debates between us. God Almighty shall assemble us on the Day of Resurrection and He shall judge between us and to Him shall return all things.
