There is much more to revelation than giving insight into the unseen; it also serves as a practical guide for how to live our lives in a way that is pleasing to God and brings the most benefit to mankind. When it comes to the means by which God has delivered revelation to mankind, throughout history God’s guidance has always been imparted to us through His Prophets, may God’s peace and blessings be upon them all. This shows us that Prophethood plays an important role in revelation. Having revelation, or knowledge, is one thing. We also need a teacher to provide its correct interpretation, in order for mankind to make use ofthe knowledge and implement it properly.
